Vaccine for Workplaces

Click here for the vaccine toolkit

Business and organizations can take the following steps to help protect their staff, their patrons, and our community from COVID-19:

  • Designate a single point of contact for anything related to the COVID-19 vaccine (owner, manager, human resources director, etc.).
  • Provide your staff with accurate, scientific-based information about the COVID-19 vaccine. Reputable information can be found accessed from the Springfield-Greene County Health Department, the Missouri DHSS, and the CDC.  
  • Create a plan to send staff in waves to a vaccination site throughout the day during normal business hours. Work to address barriers that might create challenges to maintaining general operations while vaccinating your staff during the workday.
  • Consider your ability to host an onsite clinic. If you have healthcare workers on staff, this could include becoming an enrolled vaccinator through the Missouri COVID-19 Vaccinator Enrollment program

If you have staff who are hesitant to take the COVID-19 vaccination, it will be helpful to find out why that might be. We can provide information to address frequent concerns and answer any questions people may have about the vaccines. 

If you have additional questions, please email [email protected] or call 417-874-1211 and press option 2.
