COVID-19 vaccinations have begun to be administered across the country with tens of millions of Americans expected to be vaccinated in the next several months. Healthcare workers and the elderly living in long-term care homes have been prioritized first. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says those who are under 65 and healthy may be able to get their vaccinations as early as April. For household employers, this development brings up the question: can I require my nanny to get a vaccination?
The simple answer is yes. You can make a COVID-19 vaccination a condition of employment for your nanny.
Additionally, the International Nanny Association came out last week with their findings and recommendations.
As the vaccines for COVID-19 roll out around the world, many nannies and domestic childcare workers in the industry are finding it challenging to know when they will be eligible to receive the vaccine. While every country, state/province, county, or city will be different, we want to be a supportive partner in sharing information for those of you who want the vaccine.
