Vaccine Resource Center for Employers

As the national and statewide rollout of vaccines for COVID-19 continues, many employers have questions about how they can help facilitate distribution of the vaccine for their employees. While the state of Missouri has developed a detailed plan for vaccine distribution based on a variety of risk factors, there are some steps employers can take to be prepared in the event that supplies make on-site vaccinations possible.

If you have questions that aren't covered here, or if you have additional information to share, please reach out to us by clicking the link below.

  1. Encourage qualified high-risk individuals to get information from their health care provider about getting the vaccine
  2. Dedicate one point of contact for this process
  3. Educate yourself and your employees
  4. Survey your employees to determine how many will want to receive a vaccination once it is available
  5. Fill out the Health Department’s survey

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have employees who are eligible right now because they are 65 years or older, or because they are considered a high-risk individual, you can encourage them to get the vaccine as early as they can to speed up the process once additional phases have been activated. Although local health care providers do not have vaccines available at this time (Friday, January 22), CoxHealth, Jordan Valley Community Health Center and Mercy all have created webpages for their most recent information as well as forms for patients to fill out vaccine interest or pre-registration forms. Links to those pages and patient forms are below.
