State Sets Up Employer Vaccination Toolkit

California has created an Employer Vaccination Toolkit, a website designed to help employers make COVID-19 vaccinations more convenient for their employees.

The website includes links to help employers find local provider partners for scheduling an offsite vaccination event, information on requesting a worksite mobile clinic and vaccine education materials to share with employees.

Employers who seek to vaccinate fewer than 100 employees per event/day are encouraged to consider partnering with another employer or organization nearby in coordinating the vaccination clinic.

The step-by-step guide for submitting a mobile clinic request includes the infrastructure requirements for a worksite mobile clinic, such as the physical space needed for check-in, screening, registration, waiting, vaccination and post-shot observation areas.

Employers interested in requesting group appointments at nearby providers or setting up a mobile or pop-up vaccination clinic at their workplace must complete an online form to send their request to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). A representative will follow up within three business days and requests will be filled as resources allow. There is no financial cost to the employer.

The Employer Vaccination Toolkit is located at saferatwork.covid19.ca.gov/employer-vaccination-toolkit/.

Half-sheet flyers that can be used for outreach and education are available to download in the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, East Armenian, English, Farsi, Hmong, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese and West Armenian.
