ARLINGTON, VA, U.S. — NAMA has announced that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has granted its request to include convenience services employees under Phase 1b of its COVID-19 Vaccination Program Interim Playbook for Jurisdiction Operations — guidance for states on how the vaccine should be distributed. Each state has been tasked with developing its own vaccine deployment plan, but many have followed the CDC interim playbook and have moved into Phase 1b.

NAMA has compiled several resources to assist operators in being prepared for when industry is able to be vaccinated in their states. The resources include a COVID Vaccine Deployment Tracker and a Sample Vaccination Eligibility Letter for operators, route drivers, warehouse workers, and other employees to have on hand when visiting the vaccination site.

Proof of eligibility documents:

  • Sample Vaccination Eligibility Letter (Edit and Print on your company letterhead)
  • NAMA’s Critical Infrastructure Operator Certification Letter
  • DHS Memorandum Deeming the Industry as Essential

NAMA Government Affairs focused on the COVID-19 vaccine rollout and resources, government assistance programs, important federal and state legislative priorities, and much more during its a recent webcast.

Founded in 1936, NAMA is the association representing the $31 billion US convenience services industry. With nearly 1,000-member companies — including many of the world’s most recognized brands — NAMA provides advocacy, education and research for its membership.
