Vaccinating your workforce
13th May 2021
The Covid vaccination programme is making great progress in our area – nearly 60% of our adult population have now had their first dose. A large portion of the working population is now eligible to book their vaccine and as the programme continues to open up to younger people, you and your workforce may have concerns about fitting their vaccination around their working day. We know that vaccination is our way out of this pandemic and urge you to encourage your staff to book their vaccination as soon as they are invited, and also to stress to them the importance of having their second dose. We understand you and your staff may have concerns or questions about being vaccinated; we’d like to highlight a couple of good resources that may address any concerns or queries:
The Healthier Together website: This site has all the latest information about the Covid-19 Vaccination Programme in our area, plus a section that answers the most commonly asked questions.
Covid-19 Alternative Language Hub: If you have staff for whom English isn’t their first language, this page brings together information about Covid-19 and the vaccine in 22 different languages (and counting!), including British Sign Language.
