We all know that COVID-19 have changed our perceptive and how we used to live our life. New normal is something we never imagined. Previous year have been the greatest challenge in our lives.
No doubt about it that Covid-19 has changed how we see our friends and family, where we work and even how we shop. Now, coming back to getting to staying safe in COVID-19 and why we should encourage every retailer, companies to motivate their employees to get vaccination.
At Kroger, they have been running campaign to get bonus on getting vaccination. They had to reimagine selling groceries, because it’s not just about groceries anymore. It was about protecting nearly half a million employees and 11 million customers every day.
While managing an ever-changing and often challenging supply chain; And accelerate our e-commerce services to provide fresh food with low or no touch shopping. Now, with nearly 39% of Americans getting the full vaccination, we expect slow life to return to normal. To better protect ourselves and our communities, we must all do our part to vaccinate and encourage others to do the same.
But unfortunately, misinformation about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine continues to spread, making many still hesitant to get it. About a quarter of adults in the United States said they would not try to get the vaccine. That’s why companies like Kroger should play a role in making sure employees understand the benefits of getting vaccinated, as well as motivating their employees to do so. We will see an increase in full vaccinations and a steady decrease in Covid-19 cases if we create widespread confidence in the vaccine. Most importantly, we will all be able to socialize and be together safely much sooner, not only in our grocery stores, but also in our restaurants, churches, small businesses, playgrounds, and homes. This is where business comes in. According to the Edelman Trust Barometer, companies are among the most trusted establishments in American life.
In a recent statement they said that. At Kroger, we found that our partners became less hesitant about vaccinations after we provided a financial incentive of $ 100 and provided consistent factual information from reliable authorities about the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine.

For many, getting a vaccine may require time off work, travel time, or childcare. By offering solutions with financial support, it makes the vaccination decision less burdensome. To help meet these practical challenges, our group of companies awards $ 100 to each fellow who is fully vaccinated. Beyond rewards, education is the key. There are misconceptions and unfortunate doubts about vaccines so it is extremely important to be proactive with employees and share facts about the science.
We’ve also launched a content chain featuring Kroger’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Mark Watkins, who shares his professional opinion. And to answers employee questions and offers a good dose of false facts to help people make an informed vaccination decision.

As of today, Kroger pharmacists and healthcare technicians have distributed 4.3 million Covid-19 vaccines. And that number continues to grow daily.
While, further Kroger said that in new few months the tough thing is to let everyone know why getting vaccination is important to end this virus together.
