AmCham Letter to Health Minister Jan Blatny on Vaccination Policy

We write to provide comment on the vaccination policy from the perspective of businesses. Our aim is to end the pandemic with the lowest loss of life possible and to return the economy to operations unaffected by pandemic as soon as the suppression of the pandemic makes it possible. These comments are made in recognition of the difficult choices facing the government, and are intended to put the organizational resources of private companies to work in helping the government and society to overcome this crisis.
