Giving it Our Best Shot – Statewide Vaccination Plans

Vaccine approval and administration are the next steps in the fight against COVID-19. As with nearly everything about this pandemic, guidance and action plans vary by jurisdiction, and are constantly evolving. To that end, this chart provides links to state agency websites, vaccine allocation plans, and other guidance related to the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, as well as basic vaccination plan phases.

This chart is not all-inclusive and does not cover municipalities, some of which have issued their own guidance. Nor does the chart include vaccine provider registration procedures or industry-specific guidance. The purpose of the below information is to give employers a general idea of what vaccine-related actions various jurisdictions are taking.

In addition, this post does not address other significant issues related to employee vaccinations, including potential wage and hour, discrimination, and privacy concerns. As a result, employers should consult with counsel for details on additional orders that may apply to their operations and for guidance on related legal questions.

Littler has created two comprehensive toolkits – a vaccination toolkit for all employers and one specific to healthcare and long-term facilities – to help with the array of vaccine-related issues in the workplace. Click here to purchase either Toolkit online, or reach out to your Littler attorney.
