Below we present the most important issues covered by the guidelines on the organisation and implementation of vaccinations in workplaces.
Companies can register their willingness to participate in the employee vaccination programme as from 4 May. To do so, they fill in a form which is available on the website of the Government Security Centre.
In this form, an employer declares the number of employees willing to receive the vaccine, but without providing any personal data. Registration is possible for employees, co-workers (employed under a civil law contract or running a sole proprietorship), their family members, members of professional self-governments and trade associations as well as students over 18 years of age (notified by higher education institution).
