Vaccination support models

Note: If you are submitting a request to vaccinate less than 100 employees per event/day, you may be asked to consider partnering with another employer or organization within your surrounding area to facilitate an event together. This is an opportunity to partner with other employers or organizations in your neighborhood to vaccinate your community. We want to ensure events are planning to fully use the capacity of vaccination sites to help get your neighborhood to immunity!

Partner with local providers on offsite vaccination events

  1. Fill out a short online survey to provide CDPH with your request and the department will follow up with a list of local providers.
  2. Choose a provider to coordinate with scheduling your employee vaccination event at the provider’s site.
  3. Hold the event on scheduled dates and times and promote widely.

Requesting a Worksite Mobile Clinic

  1. Reach out to the California Department of Public Health about setting up on-site vaccination events.
  2. See “Submitting a Mobile Clinic Request” section below for a step-by-step guide.

Submitting a mobile clinic request

Note: In situations where part of the employer’s workforce is represented by a union, there may be bargaining obligations before implementation of a vaccination program.

  1. Understand your employee vaccination needs:
    • What percentage of your employees need vaccination?
    • Would a worksite vaccination event help support your employees (and potentially their family members) access vaccines?
  2. Review the infrastructure requirements for a worksite mobile clinic.
  3. Submit a support request for the event:
    • Fill out a short online survey to send your request to CDPH.
    • A representative will reach out within 3 business days to follow up.
  4. Help your employees get vaccinated on-site on your schedule:
    • Host the event on scheduled dates and times and promote widely.
