Manufacturers Committed to Vaccinations

By National Association of Manufacturers Press Release

Washington – Following the introduction of a rule by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration that employers with 100 or more employees will need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Jan. 4, 2022, or get tested for the virus weekly under government rules issued Thursday, National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons released the following statement: 

“Manufacturers continue to be committed to promoting vaccination and keeping our teams, customers and communities safe and healthy.

"Federal vaccine requirements should be flexible enough to ensure we can achieve those goals, and we appreciate OSHA taking many of our inputs into consideration. We are still reviewing the rule, but we will continue to share manufacturers’ perspectives and experiences with the administration to make sure our members aren’t faced with undue cost burdens and other potential disruptions.

"And as we have been doing throughout the pandemic through our ‘This Is Our Shot’ project, the NAM and The Manufacturing Institute will continue providing manufacturers with the tools needed to communicate effectively about the importance of COVID-19 vaccines—vaccines made for all of us by people like us, manufacturers in America.”
