New vaccination question on the Healthy at Work screening

By now, most you may have noticed that there is a new question being asked when you conduct your daily health screening each morning. The question asks, “are your fully vaccinated,” and if so, when was the date of your last shot of the two-shot series, or in the case of the Johnson and Johnson, when was the date of your only shot.

Goodwill industries of Kentucky is not making COVID-19 vaccinations mandatory, that is not why we are asking the new question. The question is being asked because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated their guidance on new steps for people who are fully vaccinated.

For Goodwill to better serve our employees, we must know who is vaccinated so that we take all appropriate measures when safeguarding each one of our employees. We understand that getting vaccinated is a personal decision and we respect an individual’s choice in this matter.

We encourage each and every one of our employees to make informed decisions. If you would like to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccination, you can visit this web page.
