EEOC updates guidance on COVID-19 vaccinations

Not official use.
 Just a quick post to note that the EEOC updated its What You Should Know About COVID-19 and the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, and Other EEO Laws (specifically, Section K Vaccinations). You can tell which subsections were updated because it will say "Updated 10/13/2021" (subsections K1, 3, 4, 9, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18). 

Some of the new guidance specifically covers permissible incentives for getting the vaccine. Particularly noteworthy: the guidance states that there are no limits on the value of incentives (under either GINA or ADA) for employees get vaccinated by a health care provider that is not affiliated with the employer.
