Restaurant workers and other frontline essential workers eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Group 3 may begin to receive their vaccines as soon as March 10. In addition to restaurant employees, this group includes supply chain workers and those involved in food distribution.
Helping Your Employees Through the Process
The state of NC does not require identification or a driver’s license in order to receive the vaccine, nor do they require proof of employment as a frontline essential worker. However, some vaccination sites may request this information. To help employees though the process, we are providing a sample letter that businesses may customize, print and give to their employees to take to their vaccination appointment or event. This letter is intended to certify that an employee is, in fact, a part of your organization and is deemed a Frontline Essential Worker in Group 3 or an Essential Worker in Group 4. (A date has not yet been set for Group 4 vaccinations, which includes hotel workers.) Download, customize, and print the letter, which can be found below in the Vaccine Resources section.
