Early this year, many CEOs breathed sighs of relief as they began to hear talk about moving beyond COVID. Unfortunately, many experts believe that, far from abating, COVID will be bringing us more surges in the future. As COVID rates show signs of an increase due to the latest omicron subvariants, and new variants are identified in Europe, companies have good reason to monitor employee vaccination and specifically booster records within the workplace.

Vaccination is just as important now as it was earlier in the pandemic. Omicron is 30% to 60% more transmissible than the Delta variant, meaning a corporate event could easily become a super-spreader event if the attendees are unvaccinated. More than 60% of Americans suffer from at least one chronic condition that can worsen COVID symptoms. That means that attending an event or returning to the workplace without an updated booster shot can bring exposure to a life-threatening illness.

It’s essential to protect all of your employees and their families as you plan for a return to the workplace or schedule corporate events. To do that, you need to know which of your employees have received boosters — and when.
