COVID-19 vaccinations by employers

Hi Community,

Looking for this information, not able to find.

Is it permitted for employers to conduct covid 19 vaccination drives for their employees? What are the process and guidelines?

Hi Nisha,

The Government of India has issued a Guidance on COVID-19 Vaccination at Work Places wherein workplaces having 100 eligible and willing beneficiaries can organize a vaccination session at their own workplace. While the guidelines state that the District Task Force chaired by District Magistrate and Urban Task Force chaired by Municipal Commissioner will identify such work places, the employers can also voluntarily approach the said officials to bring themselves under consideration. Only employees above the permitted age group shall be eligible for vaccination at such workplace covid-19 vaccination centers and not their family members or other persons. Such employees shall be registered on the Co-WIN platform to prove themselves as willing beneficiaries for the vaccine session. Employers should ensure availability of three rooms as waiting, vaccination and observation rooms at workplace. Employers are mandated to ensure compliance with the guidance note for the purpose of organising a covid session.

Please look into the below guidelines.

Regards,
Chethan
