COVID-19 Vaccinations & Protective Behaviors: Continuing but Critical

As COVID-19 vaccinations continue to be rolled out across the states – albeit rather chaotically, it remains critical that businesses stay updated on vaccine availability for your employees and not let up on any of the basic controls and protective behaviors. This is particularly important as vaccine efficacy against the variants continues to be studied and refined. While no COVID-19 vaccine is 100% effective, particularly against mild cases and all variants, the currently authorized vaccines in the United States are highly effective against the currently circulating strains and new variants of concern.  This is an area of research that TAG will continue to track, and vaccine manufacturers are monitoring the efficacy of their vaccines against new emerging variants.

As such, TAG recommends:

  • Stay updated on your state vaccine rollout and encourage and/or facilitate vaccine attainment for your employees. If you need information, the National Governors Association webpage, State COVID-19 Vaccine Resources, provides links to the vaccine public health webpage of every state and U.S. territory.
  • Stay protected. Continue to require masks, distancing, and personal hygiene/handwashing. Encourage employees to maintain all protective behaviors when not at work, avoiding gathering and wearing masks – even once they are vaccinated.
  • Stay tuned. Keep an eye on the news for updates of the variants – focusing on those proven to be valid … including TAG’s tri-weekly e-newsletter on which we include regular key points of accurate, science-based news and research.
