New platform organizes top guidance from government, non-profit and private sector sources
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today launched a comprehensive new digital resource center to help business leaders and associations navigate vaccine questions, including state-specific guidance and information, employer vaccine communication and strategy guidance, and reliable safety and efficacy information.
“Our economy will return to strength when we return to health—and science and smart planning will get us there. Vaccinating all Americans is the ultimate silver bullet that will allow us to restore normalcy and reignite a broad-based economic recovery,” said Suzanne Clark, President and CEO-Elect of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “Over the last several months, the Chamber has been leading efforts, including through the Chamber Foundation’s Path Forward event series, to provide accurate, actionable, and data-driven guidance around COVID-19, protection measures, and vaccines to businesses and communities across the country. We are pleased to introduce the latest, our COVID-19 Vaccines Digital Resource Center, which connects businesses with available guidance.”
The COVID-19 Vaccines Digital Resource Center contains state-specific information, guidance for developing an employer vaccine communication and strategy, and the latest reliable data on vaccine safety to ensure our business community has the tools and resources they need to get back to business.
Businesses play a key role in nationwide vaccination efforts and their employees’ and communities’ attitudes towards COVID-19 vaccines. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation partnered with Civis Analytics, a data science firm, to conduct message testing for vaccine campaigns. This research indicates how employers should talk about the vaccine and provides a data-driven approach to COVID-19 messaging.
The U.S. Chamber will regularly update the resources center (uschamber.com/vaccine) as additional information and guidance become available.
This new platform joins a suite of resources available to American workers and business from the U.S. Chamber, including but not limited to digital resources centers to help small businesses access financial support and another to help all companies navigate the reopening process.
