Employers are entitled to tax credits for providing paid leave to employees who take time off related to COVID-19 vaccinations.  Just another thing to be aware of for your clients:  https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/employer-tax-credits-for-employee-paid-leave-due-to-covid-19

This is a minor expansion of the FFCRA credit claimed when you file your quarterly 941.

What's unclear is if you offer this optional benefit are you required to offer all of the other covid 19 2 week sick leave benefits?

I would not want to defend or explain offering FFCRA PTO for just one of the valid reasons.  Of course, if the employer elects not to ask for reimbursement, they can likely offer PTO of their own design.  I don't see any practical method for enforcement of the proper awarding of reimbursed PTO, so it would not be too difficult for an employer to only pay for the shot day and maybe a day after, and make their employee's think it is a courtesy, while still claiming the credit under the "full" rules.
