The Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Programs in Frankfort, KY has been recognized as a Platinum COVID Stops Here workplace for achieving a 100% vaccination rate.
The COVID Stops Here campaign recognizes Kentucky workplaces that have achieved widespread vaccination against COVID-19. Organizations that have achieved at least a 70% vaccination rate are eligible to receive a designation.
It is critical that Kentuckians work together to stop the spread of coronavirus — including the dangerous new Delta variant. Vaccination is the best way to stop COVID-19.
“It has always been our goal to assure that services for victims of sexual harm are available throughout the state no matter what impediments have stood in the way,” said Eileen Recktenwald, Executive Director of KASAP. “Throughout the pandemic, the regional rape crisis centers have never closed their doors. To continue to serve, we must be healthy ourselves, and protect the ones we serve. Getting vaccinated is living our mission.”
The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce developed the COVID Stops Here campaign as a way to celebrate workplaces that are leading the fight to stop COVID-19 — and to encourage more organizations to join their ranks.
“The COVID-19 vaccine is Kentucky’s pathway to recovery. KASAP is helping set the bar for vaccination in Kentucky by achieving Platinum COVID Stops Here status — meaning 100% of their employees are now vaccinated against COVID-19. This is a great achievement and we thank them for helping our state stop this dangerous virus,” said Kentucky Chamber President and CEO Ashli Watts. “Employers are playing a very important role as we work to encourage vaccination in Kentucky. In order to finally put this virus behind us, we need Kentuckians to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Together we can stop this virus, let’s make sure that COVID stops here!”
