In recent months, we’ve been asked numerous times whether or not companies can require employees to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. When I last checked a few days ago, the vaccination rate in Alabama was below 30%. That low rate puts Alabama near the bottom of states. With such a low rate of vaccination, many healthcare professionals remain very concerned about spikes in COVID-19 infections. We can do much better.
Will more companies try to require coronavirus vaccinations? If COVID-19 cases start increasing significantly, I suspect we will see many more companies begin requiring vaccinations. Companies with offices and plants across the United States may also establish general company-wide policies related to vaccinations.
