(Recorded Webinar) Vaccine Incentives for Patients and Employees

Duration: 60 minutes
Recorded on: 6/24/2021

As health centers develop incentive programs to encourage their patients and their employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, many are left wondering whether their efforts create legal or compliance risk for their organizations.  In this webinar, we will discuss the latest federal guidance on providing vaccine incentives for patients and employees, including recent updates from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
