Welcome to the Vaccines At Work hub, built in partnership with the Health Action Alliance (HAA) to help employers encourage vaccinations, improve workplace safety, and implement equitable COVID-19 vaccine policies.
We believe that if done right, employer vaccine requirements can be a helpful tool to increase both vaccination rates and workplace safety. Employers who participate in the Vaccines at Work Initiative will receive free access to trainings, toolkits, one-on-one support, and a network to learn best practices and address challenges.
If you’re an employer, sign up to learn more. Or if you work with businesses nationally or in your community, sign up to learn how you can help get more employers involved.
