UC has issued an interim vaccine policy that calls for every employee to be educated on the public health benefit of being vaccinated and strongly suggesting that you obtain a vaccination when available to you.
Similarly, the Lab expects its employees to understand the value of vaccinations and how they fit into a public health strategy of getting us all back to our normal lives.
Research your county health department and health care provider websites to see if you can register for the vaccine or be notified when the vaccine is available.
If you are filling out a vaccine notification form and it asks if you are an essential employee, Lab employees working at a Lab location are classified as Critical Government Workers (Section 8.1 - Critical government workers, as defined by the employer and consistent with Continuity of Operations Plans and Continuity of Government plans) under the California State Public Health Officer description of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers. This classification would not apply to full-time teleworkers.
