FAQ's

Is Avid4 requiring staff to be vaccinated? 

We are strongly encouraging all staff to obtain the Covid-19 vaccine prior to staff training. The CDC has recognized child care workers and camp professionals as essential- because keeping child care programs open is critical for our country. Receiving your vaccine prior to staff training gives you an added layer of protection against Covid-19 and could also protect your coworkers and family. You can help bring an end to the pandemic by receiving your vaccine. Avid4 is also paying staff 1 hour of time for receiving the vaccine (both doses).

Will I be charged for receiving the vaccine?

No, the vaccine is free. However, if you incur a cost associated with an appointment to receive the vaccine, Avid4 Adventure will reimburse the cost of that appointment. Email receipts to staffquestions@avid4.com. 

Does Avid4 need verification of my vaccine?

Yes! You will be prompted to upload a photo of your completed vaccination card on Workbright.
