New posters to help retailers communicate national vaccination policies to their colleagues have been launched by the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS).

The posters can be used by retailers to encourage colleagues to take up their opportunity to have their flu and Covid-19 vaccinations.

ACS chief executive James Lowman said: “Convenience retailers have worked tirelessly to ensure that they can continue to serve their communities while keeping their staff and customers safe.

“We have developed these posters for local shops to encourage colleagues to take up vaccines when they are offered them, and to make clear if the business is willing to pay for colleagues to have their flu jabs where they are not already eligible for these to be free of charge. Many retailers are taking this step to help protect their colleagues and their business.”

The posters are all available to download here: https://www.acs.org.uk/advice/vaccinations
