of the COVID-19 pandemic, " wrote KatieRose
McCollough, PhD, director of scientific and
regulatory affairs for NAMI, in her letter to
ACIP. " Since March, as scientific understanding
knowledge of COVID-19 transmission and
prevention improved, meatpacking facilities
have successfully implemented guidance for
programs and controls to reduce cases and
protect employee safety, despite worsening
surges across the United States. Cases amongst
meatpacking facility employees have decreased
significantly, but vaccination remains a critical
tool for effectively protecting meatpacking
employees, while keeping America's farms
working and grocery stores stocked. "
By early February, meat plants around the
country started programs to get their front-line
workers vaccinated. However, as vaccination
priorities continued to vary from state to state,
NAMI continued its push to help get all meat
processing employees on the priority list.

Zak Heald

Vaccinating front-line
workers at meat and
poultry plants is an
important step in protecting
the industry's workforce.

ast December, as COVID-19 vaccine
distribution started in the United States,
industry stakeholders joined forces to
ensure front-line workers in meat and poultry
processing facilities were given priority access.
The North American Meat Institute (NAMI)
sent a letter to the Advisory Committee on
Immunization Practices (ACIP) in early
December and followed up with another letter,
co-signed by the National Cattlemen's Beef
Association (NCBA) and the National Pork
Producers Council (NPPC), urging governors
to protect workers by allowing them access
to the vaccine just after administering initial
doses to workers in healthcare and long-term
care facilities. The industry agreed that meat
plant workers should be part of Phase 1b of
the vaccination distribution program.
" Like other critical infrastructure sectors,
the meat and poultry industry was among the
earliest to face the unprecedented challenges
