IAFF Position Statement on Vaccines
The IAFF strongly recommends that all IAFF members receive a SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) vaccine to prevent the spread of disease and assist in administering vaccinations in jurisdictions where appropriate measures are taken to protect our members health and safety and their rights on the job when vaccinations are being administered.
The IAFF has a new COVID-19 Policy and Guidelines Manual that is designed to help affiliates and their fire departments keep our members on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic safe.
This manual provides best practices and resources for fire departments during this ongoing public health emergency.
Use this document to develop an infectious disease program specific to COVID-19. The information can also be adapted for future public health emergencies.
