McDonald's is setting the table for companies and the health of their employees. McDonald's plans to give four hours of paid time off to employees of corporate-owned restaurants to receive the coronavirus vaccine, the company said through a spokesperson. “Ensuring widespread availability and access to the vaccine will require extraordinary partnerships between businesses, governments and community and health organizations and we’re engaging with government officials and our partners to understand where McDonald’s can further support this work.” Tiffany Boyd said.
While McDonald’s doesn’t plan to make COVID-19 vaccination mandatory for its staff, the company is encouraging employees to connect with a trusted third-party expert for further information about the vaccine during this time. McDonald's is the first major company to incentivize vaccines for its staff.
