To all Support, Inc. staff, providers, and families,
As vaccine efforts continue to increase across the state, we recently got clarification from CDPHE (Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment) that employees and contractors of Support, Inc. are designated as moderate-risk health care workers and are included in Phase 1B of Colorado’s COVID-19 vaccine plan. Over this week, a member of your team will be reaching out to you to discuss the COVID-19 vaccine. While the vaccine is voluntary, we are required to have tracking of participation or non-participation in the vaccine. A member of your team will also be discussing vaccine options with you and what supports you may need to access the vaccine.
Support, Inc. continues to work to connect employees and contractors with vaccine options across the state. We have been in touch with local health departments to work with these entities to help establish large vaccine opportunities for everyone. At this time, we have heard from two health departments who have the capacity to help us connect employees and contractors with a vaccine provider. Your team will discuss these opportunities with you. If you do not want to use one of these options, you can continue to work through your primary care physician or other vaccine location.
Employees and contractors of Support, Inc. have been classified by CDPHE (Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment) as moderate-risk healthcare workers and are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 1B of Colorado’s distribution plan. Support, Inc. continues to work with local County Health Departments to increase opportunities for employees and contractors to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. As vaccine availability across the state is limited, we remain committed to supporting our staff, provider and families to access the vaccine.
Please reach out to a member of your team or me at Laura.Viers@supportinc.com if you have any questions,
Thank you, Laura Viers
Associate Director of Quality Assurance
