As you may know, U.S. employers may implement a policy making it mandatory for employees to receive the vaccination for COVID-19 provided that appropriate exceptions are made for those who cannot receive it for medical or religious reasons. If you plan to implement such a policy, you should begin planning now. It would obviously be unrealistic to require vaccination anytime soon. However, because of the time and effort that will be required of employees to get vaccinated, even when the vaccine is more generally available, it is important to circulate a written vaccination policy long before you plan to enforce it so that employees can make the appropriate arrangements.
