Abstract

The literature suggests there is an upper limit to the level of employee coverage that is achievable through voluntary programs and that mandatory vaccination policies can be effective in raising vaccination coverage beyond this ceiling. Multiple studies supported the importance of providing on-site vaccinations at no cost to the employee. Numerous studies found that education and promotion are indispensable components of employee vaccination drives – especially those that mandate vaccination. The ability to access compliance data in a timely and efficient manner enables supervisors to hold their staff accountable and appears to be critical in securing high rates of participation.
