COVID Vaccine Information for Staff (updated 02/10/2021)

We encourage staff that wish to receive the COVID-19 vaccination do so; especially those working in child care programs.  Vaccination will help protect you from getting COVID-19 and help protect those around you. You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days.

Common side effects of the vaccine will not require you to Isolate or quarantine if occurring within 3 days of receiving the vaccine (more info).  These side effects range from mild to moderate depending on each individual’s reaction.  The YMCA encourages staff to work their normal schedules if they are able to do so; however, we understand this may not be appropriate in all cases.  Each staff person should coordinate their work schedule with their supervisor.
