Covid-19 Vaccine Updates

Updates as of 1/12/2021 
Note from the Office of Governor Doug Ducey:
We understand that funeral workers play an important role and my understanding is that funeral workers are in priority group 1B essential workers. We are expecting over 350,000 doses by the end of December which will cover much of priority group 1A (health care workers and residents of long term care facilities) so we should be vaccinating people in group 1B early in the new year. Priority group 1A is limited to healthcare workers who have the greatest risk of exposure and long term care facilities which house the most vulnerable. 

Funeral Home Verification of Employment for COVID Vaccination Purposes

NFDA has provided a form that funeral homes can use to verify employment for their employees who are getting priority vaccinations. Some states may require the funeral home to verify employment in order for the employee to receive the vaccination, this form can be that verification. It will be on the NFDA website under legal documents/employment. Remember you will need to be logged in to access the document below.
AZDHS is requiring some sort of employment verification at the vaccine pods, so this form may be helpful for your staff to use.
