STEP 1: Ready to Begin?
If you are an official representative for your organization (Human Resources, Administration, Group Living Manager, etc.), please fill out the Organizational Information Form.
When filling out the form, you will need to identify who will be your organization’s contact person, will need to provide the approximate number of people from your organization who wish to be vaccinated and a description of what your organization’s core functions are so that we can make an eligibility determination.
Once you have filled out and submitted the form, your organization’s contact person will receive an email back with further instructions.
STEP 2: Communicate with your team members or residents
Inform your workforce or residents that you are working to schedule them as a group and that they will not need to schedule on their own. This method will also be faster than if they attempt to schedule on their own.
Helpful Tip for Companies: Please include any temporary workers with your regular team members when compiling your list of individuals who wish to be vaccinated.
In the meantime, we recommend that you communicate with your team members or residents about where they can find reliable, trusted information on the vaccine, and that you consider organizational policies that encourage your staff or residents to get vaccinated. These are great ways to start "priming the pump" for when it's their turn.
You can use the COMMUNICATION TEMPLATE FOR EMPLOYERS (ESPANÕL) as a template you can modify to inform your team members or residents about the vaccines and answer frequently asked questions.
If your organization has a high number of team members or residents who are members of historically marginalized populations, you can schedule our Community Health Advocates to come out and answer questions for your organization. To find out more, email Honey Estrada at email@example.com.
We also recommend encouraging your team members or residents to continue practicing the 3 Ws both at work and at home, as they are key to preventing the spread of disease in our community.

Due to the high number of appointment requests we have received and the limited amount of available vaccine, it is taking several weeks for us to call and schedule appointments.
