Vaccine Resources – Helping Manufacturers Get Armed Against COVID
To support the national effort to get all Americans vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to save lives and return the manufacturing economy to normal operations, NAM and The Manufacturing Institute have launched the “This Is Our Shot” project, an initiative encouraging manufacturing team members, their families and communities to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Resources on the importance of getting vaccinated, vaccine safety, vaccine distribution and how to talk about vaccines can be found at NAM.org/ThisIsOurShot. NAM has also released their first public service announcement, “I Love Frank,” showcasing why manufacturers are rolling up their sleeves to get a COVID-19 vaccine: to protect their family, coworkers and the people they love.
The National Association of Manufacturing is in contact with federal officials who are overseeing the response to COVID-19, and working to share information and address concerns. Click here to see their COVID-19 resources.

Q. Will the manufacturing workers who were deemed essential also be in the first round?
A. Individuals who have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and frontline workers with higher risk of exposure because of their inability to perform work duties remotely and proximity to other co-workers or members of the public will be included in Phase 1b.
Phases are mid-way down the page.
Information on the phases starts at the bottom of page 9.
