According to a recently-launched Vermont Business Magazine reader poll, 35% of Vermont employers have already required employees to be vaccinated. 40% say they have no intention of asking them to be vaccinated.
The poll is a “pop-up” on vermontbiz.com, the online platform for the state’s leading business news publication. It asks one question: “Are you going to require your employees to be vaccinated?”
As of this morning, 213 votes had been cast. 39.91% answered “no intention of ever requiring vaccination for employees.” 34.74% responded, “yes, have already done so.”
Responses of less than 10% each went to “yes, will do it soon,” “will wait and see if cases grow,” and “other.”
VBM also reported today that “The American Academy of Pediatrics Vermont Chapter, Vermont Medical Society, Vermont Academy of Family Physicians, and the University of Vermont Children’s Hospital urge continued universal masking in schools to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and promote a healthy, safe, and productive school year.”
