As supply and demand issues with COVID-19 vaccines are being addressed at the state and federal level, the PA Chamber is urging its members to be patient, continue to operate under public health and safety guidelines and develop internal policies with respect to their workforce.
The PA Chamber’s “Bringing PA Back” website – the homepage for our multi-year initiative dedicated to leading Pennsylvania’s economy into a bright post-pandemic future – is regularly updated with key information regarding Pennsylvania’s phased-in vaccine rollout approach. A dedicated Vaccine Rollout page includes a listing of who is eligible to be vaccinated in each phase; a vaccine provider map from the state Department of Health; a listing of pharmacies working with the federal government’s vaccine rollout program; and messages from PA Chamber President Gene Barr urging participation by the employer community to encourage vaccinations and help end the pandemic.
The U.S. Chamber has also developed a digital resource center for job creators to aid in our collective goal of widespread distribution of the COVID vaccines. On this site, employers can find helpful information on:
- Developing a Vaccine Strategy
- Communicating About Vaccines
- Vaccine Safety & Efficacy Information
- Worksite Clinic Resources
The nation’s long-term economic recovery from the pandemic depends on safe and innovative strategies to deploy life-saving COVID-19 vaccines, and employers are essential to this role. In partnership with government and public health agencies, employers can provide a key source of support when it comes to community access and engagement, addressing vaccine skepticism and other key factors for adoption.
The PA Chamber will regularly update vaccine-related information on our “Bringing PA Back” website to give employers the tools they need as we work toward putting the pandemic in our collective review mirror and beginning the process of economic recovery.
