The government is asking for businesses to support to help increase vaccine uptake, particularly to make sure that all over 18s get their booster vaccine (or first and second vaccines) as soon as possible.
Communications resources are available here: https://coronavirusresources.phe.gov.uk/covid-19-vaccine/resources/. This includes an employer toolkit.
Please also see the attached toolkit for further information.
Businesses can help in the following ways:
- Encouraging employees to get a booster (or first and second jab) and supporting them to do it in the best possible way – this might include giving them time off to get the jab.
- Promoting the booster campaign to their customers/clients. For example using their websites to promote the booster campaign and using their notice boards to put up communications materials etc.
- If operationally feasible, releasing staff to help with the volunteer effort, either as healthcare professionals or as general volunteers.
