Employers Are Playing an Important Role in Flu, COVID Vaccinations
Oct 14, 2021

Covid vaccine safetyEmployers can play an important role in protecting their employees and communities from flu and COVID-19 this winter. In fact, more businesses are working to help their employees learn about vaccines and receive vaccines. Our friends at the Health Action Alliance have spearheaded much of this work, beginning with COVID-19 vaccines.

Now we’re approaching flu season while still battling COVID. The CDC is concerned this may be a severe flu season. Why? As people unmask and begin to gather again, the chance of spreading diseases like COVID and flu increase. We can all do our part to help stop the spread of flu – and businesses are no exception.

Check out Health Action Alliance’s recommendations for how employers can help protect their employees and communities this fall and winter. Share their article with your own employer to spark a discussion about vaccinations. Own your own business? Then consider which recommendations might make sense for your employees. Together, we can save lives.

    I have a question. Should I still go get my booster shot even if my husband is at home with Covid or should I wait?

    I really found this blog post useful and completely agree with you in so many ways. The more I research vaccines the more I realise just how important getting the jab is. I had my first dose last Monday and I feel 1 step closer to living a normal life or the “new” normal. Whether it is the new normal or the old normal it is one step closer regardless of the circumstances. I read an article by (Orenstein & Ahmed, 2017) that explains the importance of getting vaccinated not only for personal protection, however, also for the community and cities that live around us. I related this article to your blog post when I read what you stated about ” feel like I am in a cocoon that is warm and safe watching the world go by.” This really sums up how lockdowns and isolation can feel like during COVID-19. This is why getting vaccinated is not only important for ourselves and overall health & protection but it is also important that we do for the people around us so we can see our loved ones again from all around the world and close. Thank you for writing about this really important topic, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  3. May please schedule a (Covid ) booster shot for my 88 year old husband and myself…I am 81, as as soon as possible at store #6614 . We live on Main Street in Bothell. 98011
