Walt Disney World union says employees should be vaccinated

Posted Monday, March 22, 2021 9:31 AM | Contributed by Jeff

If tourism is essential to Florida’s economy, then tourism workers are essential and deserve to be a priority for vaccination, said Eric Clinton, who leads Unite Here 362, which represents 9,000 workers at Walt Disney World.

Totally agree with this, and pile on with hotel, airport and transportation workers of all kinds. Granted, at the rate they're expanding access, I imagine it's only a matter of weeks at this point.

I think there is like 36,000 union employees at Disney so if they did this that would be a good chunk of Central Floridians. Hell, just make it all Disney employees and their families and that number jumps up to probably 100,000. If they did vaccinations on site it would relieve other sites in the area and probably be way more efficient. I am for it.

Yeah, convert an Epcot lot for vaccination of employees, since it's the largest single-site employer in the nation. Also include Universal, SeaWorld and small operators. Not sure how you staff it, but talk about economic opportunity. "Come to Orlando, where it's not Miami and your ride op and waitress is vaccinated."

You had me at "not Miami."

I can't imagine staffing would be too difficult to pull off. Advent Health being a Disney partner could lend a hand and also Reedy Creek Fire Department. The more I think about it the more I want it to actually happen. I need that free donut from Krispy Kreme!

I pass the Winter Park Krispy Kreme every day on my way to work. My second dose is scheduled for April 9. This could get dangerous.

You can get a free donut every day. First dose, both doses, 2 weeks ago or yesterday. Whatever.
I wonder if those good, limited time chocolate glazed are in the deal.

If you're eating Krispy Kreme every day, Covid might not be your biggest health risk.

If you're eating Krispy Kreme every day, you can get priority for vaccination.

I think Krispy Kreme should have been slightly more creative: after your first dose of a 2-dose vaccine, you can get *half* a doughnut free! Or maybe one for half price.
