Coronavirus support for you and your employees

COVID-19’s impact extends far beyond public health. Businesses across the country have had their foundations tested. They’ve had to make difficult choices about how to sustain their operations and right-size their workforces. Safe and effective vaccines offer the best protection against severe illness from COVID-19 and its variants to your employees — and economic recovery for your business. Implementing a workforce vaccine policy can also help protect your employees and your business.

COVID-19 news in brief

  • Vaccines for children and teens: Following the FDA’s expansion of the vaccines’ emergency use authorizations, the CDC now recommends the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines for the following age groups:
    • Moderna for children 6 months to 17 years old in two doses given one month apart
    • Pfizer – which is already approved for everyone 5 years and older – for children 6 months to 4 years in three doses, with the initial two doses given three weeks apart followed by a third dose given at least eight weeks after the second dose
  • Novavax: On June 7, the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee recommended emergency use authorization of the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine for people 18 and over. If the FDA approves this recommendation and the manufacturing process, Kaiser Permanente will administer the Novavax vaccine after the CDC issues clinical guidance and as supply becomes available.
  • Boosters for children 5 to 11: The CDC now recommends a booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine for children 5 to 11. This guidance aligns with the FDA’s recent amendment of the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the vaccine. Children 5 to 11 should get their booster at least 5 months after they receive their first 2 doses of the Pfizer vaccine. We are currently providing booster shots for children 5 to 11 who received their initial vaccine series more than 5 months ago.
