USPS urges employees not to delay the COVID-19 vaccine if they want to be vaccinated
The Postal Service is reminding employees to not delay pursing access to COVID-19 vaccines if they want to be vaccinated.
The organization’s goal is for everyone to be able to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible, if they choose to do so. The supply of vaccines in the United States is limited, but more vaccines are expected to become available soon.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), postal employees should be considered during the Phase 1B rollout of COVID-19 vaccines. States and many local jurisdictions have their own plans for deciding which groups of people will be vaccinated first.
The Postal Service urges employees to review the information on their state and local public health websites, sign up for alerts and schedule a COVID-19 vaccination at the first available opportunity.
The CDC’s website allows users to search for local, state and tribal health departments.
The Postal Service will continue to provide updates as more information regarding access to COVID-19 vaccinations for employees becomes available.
