Let’s Roll Up Our Sleeves
Manufacturers in the United States have once again developed safe and effective vaccines to get our nation to health—and counter the virus that is harming our communities, our businesses and our people. But we can only get through this pandemic if Americans—and manufacturers—roll up our sleeves and get armed against COVID.
This is our shot to stop the spread of COVID-19 with a combination of getting a vaccine, wearing a face mask, practicing social distancing, avoiding crowds and regularly washing hands. We’ve compiled these resources to help manufacturers encourage COVID-19 vaccinations, respond to vaccine hesitancy and continue safeguarding team members:
Compiled by the University of Florida Center for Public Interest Communications and partners.
The Institute for Public Relations compiled the research, theories and recommendations communicators should know.
National Institutes of Health: Applying Behavioral and Social Science to Address Vaccine Hesitancy and Foster Vaccine Confidence.

A Plan To Get America to Renewal
Back in April 2020, the NAM dispatched its “American Renewal Action” plan to key leaders–at the time, the most comprehensive plan from the business community to help address immediate needs and get our nation on a path to recovery and renewal. It followed our “COVID-19 Policy Action Plan Recommendations” from March. While this leadership empowered us to advance around five dozen policy accomplishments for manufacturers since April, including many ways to bolster small manufacturers, more work remains to be done on the action plan. And the NAM is relentless in our efforts to finish the fight against COVID-19.

Running List of Additional COVID-19 Resources
Back in March 2020, the National Association of Manufacturers called on the federal government to take legislative and administrative steps to equip manufacturers to respond to COVID-19 and future public health emergencies. Among the actions in the NAM’s updated and expanded “COVID-19 Policy Action Plan Recommendations,” the NAM requested the federal government create the “Manufacturing Resiliency Fund,” which would include $1.4 trillion in loans to provide desperately needed liquidity to manufacturers and small businesses.
