1. Very constructively

I am self-employed. Upper management (me) worked diligently to make sure employees (me, myself, and I) were all vaccinated efficiently and completely. I have the best boss in the world. They even made sure my spouse was vaccinated, and facilitated the process.

2. I work for a school district

The county organized a mass vaccination event (J & J) for all school employees. Other counties in PA did the same.

12. Same Here

And, I'm just a sub. (Retired scientist, so I do math & science grades 6-12 in 2 counties.)
The smaller county (pop. 105,000) arranged to have all school personnel vaccinated. Got my 2nd one yesterday.
I think it was more complicated in the larger county where we live. About 7 times the people and a dozen times the school districts. And, all the collar counties of Chicago were a hot mess the first few weeks.
My wife got both in our county, but that's not an employer thing. She's been retired more than 15 years.

8. 2 hours per shot.

My boss says take all the time we need we're covered. He's cooler than the company.

9. They closed down all offices and told everyone to work from home.

They plan to let people to come back to the office....in July. And at only 20% capacity. If you don't want to go back to the office, they will not force you for at least the rest of the year.

They made an agreement with Walgreen and Express Scripts to be the only pharmacy of choice prior to COVID. But for COVID, if you get the shot at another pharmacy and get charged, they will reimburse you. On top of that, you get COVID and take time off, it will not count against your PTO and you will still get paid. If you are hospitalized for COVID, they will pay for most of the deductible.

And they are highly encouraging everyone to get vaccinated.

I have some "friends" who boast "Employers can't require you to take the vaccine". And I respond, "And they aren't required to employ you either if you don't". Dead Silence.

10. I work for the VHA, so it's pretty much mandatory...

...but I have no problem with that. My particular facility is 91% vaccinated. Those I have heard complaining about having to get the vaccine, or not getting it at all and leaving he VA, are just being MAGA. IMHO.

14. Before it was generally available

My employer (a first nation's federal government) made vaccinations available to employees and family members without restriction. Once it became generally available, this same employer offered the vaccine to the general public without regard to tribal membership or any other condition.

15. Interesting, looks like 75% are actively trying to be a force for good here

The other 25% are remaining largely hands-off. There's no shame in that.
