OSHA FAQ on Recording Adverse Reactions to COVID-19 Vaccine

On Friday, May 21, OSHA altered its FAQ on recording requirements related to adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccination. OSHA explains that the agency “does not wish to have any appearance of discouraging workers from receiving COVID-19 vaccination, and also does not wish to disincentivize employers’ vaccination efforts.” Therefore, the agency will not require employers to record worker side effects from vaccinations. This policy will be in place through May 2022, at which time the agency will reevaluate the policy.
