(NOBLESVILLE, AUGUST 25, 2021)
The Hamilton County Health Department wants to help Hamilton County get back to work. It’s offering on-site COVID-19 vaccination clinics to Hamilton County businesses.
“Hosting a clinic at your workplace typically leads to more people getting vaccinated, which leads to fewer COVID-19 illnesses,” says Chris Walker, emergency preparedness coordinator. “Businesses with a high percentage of vaccinated employees usually see improved productivity, improved morale, and a reduction in absence due to illness.”
Businesses should consider hosting a workplace vaccination program only if they have enough space to stand up a clinic while maintaining social distancing through the entire process, from screening to post-vaccination observation.
“If hosting a vaccine clinic at your workplace is not possible, try to identify the biggest barriers your employees have to getting vaccinated,” adds Walker. “Oftentimes it’s as easy as allowing employees to get vaccinated during work hours or to take paid leave to get vaccinated.”
Businesses interested in setting up an on-site clinic, can contact Chris Walker at Christian.firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (317) 776-8500.
