Kentucky Chamber recognizes employers for vaccination efforts

By Rachel Nix, Building Kentucky

Kentucky businesses that have achieved widespread vaccination among staff can earn a new designation from the Kentucky Chamber.

The newly-launched “COVID Stops Here” campaign will recognize employers that are leading the fight against COVID-19 and playing a role in Kentucky’s vaccination efforts. Companies with more than 70% vaccination rate can receive the designation with added bonuses for employees of businesses with high rates of vaccination.

“The Kentucky Chamber is proud to launch the ‘COVID Stops Here’ campaign in support of businesses and the critical role they are continuing to play during the coronavirus pandemic. Employers across the Commonwealth are helping lead the way in vaccinations, keeping Kentuckians safe and our economy running. We applaud their efforts to keep Kentucky safe and are proud to recognize them.”

COVID Stops Here Levels and Prizes

The campaign has assigned four levels for vaccination status at workplaces.

  • Bronze: 70% vaccination rate,
  • Silver: 80% vaccination rate
  • Gold: 90% vaccination rate
  • Platinum: 100% vaccination rate

Once a company reaches Gold level status with 90% vaccination rate, employees will be able to sign up to win giveaways from the Kentucky Chamber. Prizes may include tickets to sporting events, bottles of bourbon, experiences across the state, and more. The sweepstakes will be live in the coming weeks.
