Information for Employers

For Employers

Employers have had to adapt to uncertain and stressful conditions while continuing essential operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety of employees is a top priority for employers. Employers can play a key role in providing information about the COVID-19 vaccine. Sharing clear messaging about the vaccine can help increase confidence among employees, leading to more people getting vaccinated and fewer COVID-19 illness and death. Chicago’s essential workers have kept our City moving throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the City is working hard to make sure employees have access to the vaccine.

Employee Vaccination Options

Employers can notify employees of the options available to book an appointment for a vaccine. Employers can encourage employees to visit Chicago.gov/VaccineFinder, call (312) 746 4835, or visit Vaccines.gov to find a vaccine provider nearby.

An employee’s first contact should be their health care provider, including their primary care provider, health clinic, or hospital where they have gotten medical care in the past.

The City of Chicago has provided vaccines to pharmacies across Chicago. These pharmacies each have their own registration link. Pharmacies have been asked to prioritize Chicagoans and current patients.

What to do if an employee is sick


Even if an employee states their symptoms are mild, by law in Chicago, they must stay home, except to get medical care. Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home. If an employee wants to get tested, have them call your company’s healthcare provider or use this map to find a testing site near you. If they have symptoms of COVID-19 and are not tested, it is important to stay home.  Additional information on what to do can be found by visiting the Managing Your Health webpage.
