When will it be my turn to get vaccinated?

Mandatory Stand-Up Talk

Jan. 20, 2021

Like you, we are eager to learn when Postal Service employees will have access to COVID-19 vaccines. The goal is for everyone to be able to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as possible.

Currently, the supply of COVID-19 vaccines in the United States is limited, but we are starting to hear that more vaccines should become available soon.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and others are providing recommendations to federal, state and local governments about who should be vaccinated first. The collective recommendation is that Postal Service employees be considered
during the Phase 1B rollout of COVID-19 vaccines in state and local jurisdictions.

While the Postal Service continues to strive toward a standardized priority opportunity for our employees who choose to get the vaccine, we urge you not to delay your own access to a COVID-19 vaccination.

States, and in many cases, local jurisdictions, have their own plans for deciding which groups of people will be vaccinated first. We strongly urge you to review the information on your state and/or local public health websites, sign up for alerts and schedule a COVID-19 vaccination at the first opportunity available to you.

We will continue to provide updates as more information regarding access to COVID-19 vaccinations for our employees becomes available. Thank you for listening.
