BUFFALO, N.Y. (Spectrum News) — The Buffalo Niagara Partnership will host the second of a three-part webisode series Friday, helping employers to create a COVID-19 vaccine policy that works for them.
“It’s really about what should an employer’s vaccine policy be, what are their rights and obligations under the law, and then how to effectively communicate with employees who may be vaccine hesitant,” President and CEO Dottie Gallagher said.
Gallagher said the partnership is focused on trying to get people back to work. The regional chamber of commerce believes vaccines are the key.
“We are playing in active role on sort of that vaccine education and our channel, if you will, is the employer to the employees,” she said.
As part of that targeted effort, the partnership is also actively soliciting employers that can do 50 or more vaccines at the workplace. Erie County said its department of health staff would run the pop-up point of dispensing sites.
