Wales publishes vaccination toolkit to encourage take-up

A vaccination toolkit to encourage take-up by employees has been launched by the Welsh Government.

The toolkit encourages employers to give staff paid time off to get their vaccination. Other measures include:

  • Use campaign resources to run an awareness campaign
  • Direct employees to reliable and accurate information about the vaccine, available from Public Health Wales, for example. There is also a Q&A document and expert advice videos to explain the vaccine
  • Create employee vaccine champions by encouraging staff to discuss their experiences and share information with colleagues, family and friends.

Joanna Swash, Group CEO of Wrexham-based care home supplier Moneypenny.com said: “We have actively encouraged our teams to get vaccinated by allowing them time off to make appointments for their vaccination.  We believe it is in everyone’s interests that we are vaccinated as a community.”

Vaccination will reduce the risk of serious illness as the delta variant continues to spread in Wales and the rest of the UK.
