Employer Solutions Offers Resources to Encourage Vaccination

If you're developing a program to encourage vaccination among your workforce, Vanderbilt Health Employer Solutions offers the following resources to help build and streamline that process and answer common questions.

• Vanderbilt’s COVID-19 website includes the most up-to-date information for patients. The Common COVID Vaccine Questions may be especially helpful for answering employees' concerns.

• The team regularly posts helpful articles on the Employer Insights blog on topics such as why the COVID-19 vaccine is safe for pregnant women, what parents need to know about masks and vaccines, and the value of employee testimonials in building vaccine readiness. The team also posts videos from Vanderbilt Health experts, such as this conversation between two infectious disease physicians about the delta variant.

• Once a week, Vanderbilt Health's social media accounts feature the latest infographic on COVID-19 hospitalizations for vaccinated vs. unvaccinated individuals. (See sample graphic at right.)

• A recent webinar we hosted is available to view on-demand: The Virus, the Vaccine and the Delta Variant

• A Vanderbilt Health ad campaign called Be a fan. Take the shot is a helpful link to share for its encouraging videos and information on vaccines.

Another great resource to explore is Nashville’s Good to Go program. Vanderbilt Health has partnered with Good to Go since the beginning of the pandemic to help businesses in Middle Tennessee operate safely. If you sign the pledge, you can get access to all of their resources and past webinar recordings.


The data on this infographic reflects patients hospitalized over the 7-day period ending Oct. 2 on Vanderbilt Health's Nashville campus, including the Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt; Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital, Vanderbilt Bedford Hospital and Vanderbilt Tullahoma-Harton Hospital. It includes patients with active COVID-19 infection but doesn't include patients who remain hospitalized because of lasting complications of their illness.
