The COVID-19 pandemic has presented numerous challenges for U.S. dairy farmers, who remain committed to implementing CDC-recommended workforce best practices to prevent and control the spread of coronavirus on farms. Access to safe and highly effective vaccines will give the dairy workforce and their families an added layer of protection against COVID-19.
The National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) knows vaccinating essential workers, including the dairy workforce, is important because of their role in maintaining critical infrastructure operations and their increased risk of getting and spreading COVID-19. Vaccination is one of many important tools to help stop the pandemic. So NMPF has developed an information page on their website which looks at some frequently-asked-questions about the vaccine and its rollout. Questions like:
- “How do I get a vaccine?”
- “What can I do now to protect myself and my workforce from COVID-19?”
- “What should I know about getting vaccinated?”
NMPF provides resources to share with employees about the COVID-19 vaccine and its rollout, and they also provide a link so you can visit CDC’s website for more information.
