Vaccine policy helps create a safe work environment for city employees
Statement of Common Council President Cavalier Johnson August 24, 2021
Today’s announcement that effective September 1, 2021, the City of Milwaukee will require general employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 is a step forward for our employees and our community. As an employer we must lead by example, and remember that we have an obligation to create a workplace that is safe for all employees. Having a workforce that is fully vaccinated has become an important part of creating that safe environment.
The best tool that we have against the physical illness, social separation, and economic depression that COVID-19 brings is vaccination. Together, we can create a safer community for all who live, work, play, and learn in Milwaukee.
If you are not yet vaccinated I encourage you to take that important step as soon as possible. You can visit milwaukee.gov/covidvax for more on vaccination sites, times, and all the latest vaccination information.
