Businesses in Greene County, Missouri now have access to a tool kit to help them encourage their employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine. 

The Springfield-Greene County Health Department launched the COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit on Monday.  According to the health department, the resource combines best practices from the CDC with feedback from members of the community.  It includes educational content, talking points, email and social media templates, flyers, and answers to frequently asked questions.  It also contains information about local vaccine opportunities for individuals, businesses and organizations.
