This template can be used to provide your employees with proof of employment in the food and agriculture industry for verification of Phase 1B vaccine eligibility. Replace all sections highlighted in yellow with the appropriate information.
While the country is still in the early phases of distributing the COVID-19 vaccine, we want to keep you informed of what we are doing as an organization to prepare. As you are aware, the COVID-19 vaccine will have limited availability at first due to limited supplies. The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) is currently working with state and county health department officials to determine which groups will receive the first vaccinations and where they can get it. Please note: If someone has previously been diagnosed positive for COVID-19, they should still get vaccinated as soon as it’s available to remain protected from the virus.
