Whether it’s the local community center, hospital or neighborhood pharmacy where people are receiving their vaccinations for COVID-19, there is a sense of renewal in the air.
Even our employees, who have been volunteering at a vaccination site have been deeply touched by people’s irrepressible joy at receiving their vaccinations.
We appreciate that not everyone is confident in the vaccines. But we also know that, throughout the pandemic, people have consistently trusted their employers to provide reliable COVID-19 information, as well as offer tools and resources to help them maintain their physical and mental health.
That’s why, here at Colonial Life, we are actively and strongly encouraging our employees to get vaccinated as soon as a vaccine is offered to them. For the health and safety of everyone across the country, we urge you to do the same.
Your voice in encouraging your employees to get vaccinated can be powerful. At Colonial Life, we have taken several steps to inform our employees, to help decrease vaccine hesitation and get our community well and back to business. It’s our hope that the ideas outlined below will help guide you through these conversations with your employees.
We advise looking for local resources that may have the most up-to-date information about vaccines and virus trends in your area. Check and update information frequently. As we’ve found in the past year, guidance about the pandemic can change from day-to-day.
