Employers in the United States have encouraged their employees to get vaccinated against Covid-19 to make their workplace safer and protect employees, their families and their communities. The spread of the Delta variant and declining rates of new vaccinations brings new urgency to the effort to increase vaccination rates.
Earlier this year, employers focused on efforts to make it easy for employees to get vaccinated. They offered flexible schedules, paid time off to be vaccinated, modest financial incentives and onsite vaccination. Despite these initiatives, over a third of U.S. adults remain unvaccinated.
