COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility and Employer Guidance: https://www.stls.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/COVID-19VaccineEligibilityandEmployerPractices.pdf

STLS reached out to the Ask the Lawyer service to learn more about staff vaccination requirements. For example:

Can a public library compel staff members to get vaccinations for COVID-19, when they are available? If so, can an employee request an exemption? Do we need waivers of library liability if a staff member chooses not to get vaccinated?
