Vaccine Resources – CDC Essential Worker Vaccination Communication Toolkit for Employers

We were just made aware of this resource tool from the CDC for essential worker employers that want to educate and inform their employees about the COVID-19 vaccine.  We are sharing this information broadly to insure we don’t overlook anyone.  If this doesn’t apply directly to your business at this time, please share with someone you know that it does.

The CDC has designed a COVID-19 Vaccination Communication Toolkit for Essential Workers to help employers build confidence in this important new vaccine. The toolkit will help employers across various industries educate their workforce about COVID-19 vaccines, raise awareness about the benefits of vaccination, and address common questions and concerns. 
 
The toolkit contains a variety of resources including: 

  • key messages,
  • an educational slide deck
  • FAQs
  • posters/flyers – in English and Spanish
  • newsletter content
  • a plain language vaccine factsheet (available in several different languages)
  • a template letter for employees
  • social media content
  • vaccination sticker templates.

There are about 8-10 posters that are broad industry specific covering food service, first responders, healthcare, day care, construction, farmers, grocery, delivery and more.  Above is a sample of what that looks like.

The CDC will continue to add more materials to this toolkit, so please check back frequently for updates.
 
Please feel free to share this info with colleagues and businesses that you know in essential worker industries.
