Direct Care Workers: Communications Toolkit
MDHHS wants to help provide support and resources in your efforts to educate and vaccinate your direct care workers (DCWs). There are several communications resource materials available to help, and we have pulled together some key pieces into a package to help you address some of the most common questions and concerns we have heard from direct care workers in regard to the COVID-19 vaccine.
The materials in the toolkit can be used singularly or in combination with the other materials to help promote staff vaccinations, and build confidence in its safety and efficacy. Below is a description of those materials and how you might be able to use them in your communications efforts. Please let us know if you have any questions.
This letter was drafted as a resource for you to customize to your facility and team in communicating with and encouraging staff to get vaccinated if they haven't yet or are not yet up-to-date on their vaccinations. Feel free to edit the language so it fits your goals and needs. The facts and figures within the letter have been reviewed and resourced.
