COVID-19 Vaccine resources for businesses
How is your business handling the vaccine rollout?
With all adults being eligible for a vaccine starting March 30, what is your business doing to help employees receive one? Take this short survey; your answers will contribute to the Chamber's COVID-19 Toolkit and checklist for a safe reopening.
As of March 30, all Minnesotans 16 years of age and older will be eligible to receive a vaccine. Minnesota has directed providers to prioritize vaccine appointments for people most at risk of getting COVID-19, or those who could develop severe illness if infected. This includes older Minnesotans, those with underlying health conditions, and those in essential jobs.
How to help employees receive a vaccine:
- Help employees find where to get vaccinated: They can receive them through the health care provider, at a pharmacy and others. The state offers a vaccine locator map to help employers and employees.
- Host an on-site vaccination: Just like hosting an on-site flu clinic, a vaccine provider or health care provider could help you vaccine employees on-site. Contact your health care provider or sign up through the Minnesota Department of Health.
