Mandatory Vaccination Policy
In compliance with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Department of Developmental Services (DDS), Sonia Inc has implemented a mandatory vaccination policy effective immediately requiring the COVID-19 vaccination for all employees.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our employees and clients has remained our top priority. We understand the need to stop the spread of COVID-19 and the newly released vaccine is a promising means of doing so. While getting people vaccinated is an important strategy to fight the virus, deciding to get vaccinated is an individual choice impacted by each person’s health conditions, allergies, and religious and personal beliefs. Our Company will continue to follow the directives of state and local health agencies regarding vaccine requirements and communicate the information to all stakeholders. We ask everyone to use kindness, compassion and empathy when talking about vaccines. Please respect the individual choice to vaccinate and respect that no-one should be forced to defend that decision either way. These are complex decisions, especially for those with health concerns, allergies or religious, cultural, or other beliefs. While the vaccine is one critical way to slow this pandemic, we continue to take the necessary precautions to help slow the spread of COVID-19, which include wearing a mask or facial covering, practicing good hygiene (including frequent handwashing and use of hand sanitizer) and proper social distancing.
