As the pace of vaccinations continues to pick up steam across the U.S. and other parts of the world, we’re feeling a gradual shift away from the panic and uncertainty of a year ago, and toward reengagement with hopes that this summer will look quite different than the last.
Some employers are working through how best to address their employees’ fear or hesitancy around getting vaccinated, while others are weighing the benefits and potential pitfalls of requiring their employees to be vaccinated. Still others are including vaccine tracking programs to support their COVID-19 response plans. Vaccine tracking provides a view into the collective vaccination status of employees and helps employers prioritize and monitor employees’ health and safety — and not just for COVID-19; this program can also track for the flu, hepatitis and other diseases.
Tracking vaccination progress has quickly become an important part of the pandemic recovery. It holds a heightened importance for employers working to get back to business — those who are eager to return their workforce to on-site offices, plants, schools, etc. Fully understanding vaccination trends among their workforces will allow employers to best serve the needs of their people, while keeping the workplace running.
