Today the FDA published a new web page, COVID-19 Vaccination & the Food and Agriculture Sector, to share information and resources to help employers in the Food and Agriculture sector communicate about COVID-19 vaccination to their workforce. The resources are from the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other trusted partners.
The page includes links to information about:
- the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines authorized for emergency use by the FDA and fact sheets in more than 25 languages
- a CDC tool kit in different languages with key messages to reach essential workers about COVID-19 vaccination
- information about the availability of vaccines in your community
As the COVID-19 vaccine supply increases, the FDA hopes these resources will help leadership and management of food and agriculture operations support worker vaccination. When an essential worker gets a COVID-19 vaccine, they protect themselves, their families, co-workers, and their communities. Healthy workers help to ensure the availability of a safe and plentiful food supply.
