OMA Government Affairs Committee Examines Manufacturer Vaccination Initiatives
This week, the OMA Government Affairs Committee conducted a hybrid in-person meeting, addressing multiple policy-related issues impacting manufacturers.
In addition to updates on Statehouse activities and Ohio’s redistricting process, the meeting included a panel discussion on COVID-19 vaccination policies implemented by select Ohio manufacturers. The panel discussion revealed:
Cleveland-Cliffs’ aggressive incentive program has achieved a total COVID-19 vaccination rate of 75% among its approximately 25,000 employees.
Manufacturers that have hosted on-site vaccination clinics, such as Whirlpool Corporation, have often experienced higher vaccination rates.
Employers with mandatory vaccination policies have seen some resistance from certain workers.
Some manufacturers are already considering hosting on-site clinics for booster shots.
