Required workers and employees: when and how to get vaccinated

Contract firm or temporary help agency employees

For workers employed by contract firms or temporary help agencies, the employee agency and the host employer are joint employers. Both are responsible for providing and maintaining a safe work environment. The responsibilities of the workplace agency and host employer may vary, depending on the terms of the workplace, and should be described in their agreement. (Protecting temporary workers pdf icon).

Independent contractors

Discuss your vaccination options with management on your work site. To find out what is available on the work site where you are an independent contractor, ask the work site manager if they are providing vaccinations to independent contractors. To find out about other options, contact your local health department or your personal healthcare provider.

Employees who work off-site or on work sites that are not affiliated with my employer

Discuss your vaccination options with your employer. To find out about other options, contact your local health department or your personal healthcare provider.

Employees who work shifts or alternate work schedules

Discuss your vaccination options with your employer to find out if your employer is vaccinating the site. If no site vaccine is available, you may be able to get vaccinated at your personal health care provider’s office, a pharmacy, your local health department, or at vaccination sites set up by your state or local government or local health system. To find out about other options, contact your local health department or your personal healthcare provider.
