How to host a vaccination clinic for your employees

 hhs

On-site vaccination clinics are a critical tool to make vaccinations as accessible as possible to your local community. Your small business, bank or agency could support this effort. 

The On-Site Vaccination Clinic Toolkit includes a roadmap for working directly with vaccine providers to launch vaccination clinics in places people know and trust, sample roles and responsibilities to guide discussion and planning with your vaccine provider, and points-of-contact for vaccine providers offering on-site vaccination services. 

Additionally, if your organization operates across multiple geographies and is interested in launching a national partnership with vaccine providers, please reach out to COVIDPartnerships@who.eop.gov for additional information and assistance.
