The Logistics of Handling Covid-19 Vaccinations
Early reports indicate that most employers are more likely to use pharmacies and other third-party providers to administer the COVID vaccination. The vaccines from Pfizer require below-zero temperatures, and there are difficulties in keeping up with who got the first of the two shots required and when those workers need their second dose.
Thus, many employers will encourage employees to go to CVS, Walgreens, and other distributors that regularly handle such vaccinations. Further, employers could assist in the process by offering work-sponsored vouchers or on-line scheduling programs, as well as providing time off to get the shots.
