DHR Health Mandates COVID-19 Vaccine for All Employees, Medical Staff, and all Other Persons Working, Studying, or Teaching at or on DHR Health Premises
The health and safety of our patients, employees and community is our top priority. The vaccine remains the best line of defense against severe illness due to COVID-19. DHR Health has implemented a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination requirement of all employees, unless they have an approved exemption. We understand there may be employees who cannot get vaccinated because of medical issues or religious beliefs, and DHR Health has policies in place to address these situations on an individual basis. In addition all persons, medical staff, students, residents, faculty, contractors and vendors included, that work, study or teach at or on DHR Health premises are required to be vaccinated
Given the current status of the pandemic, DHR Health believes the vaccines are the most effective way to protect patients and staff, and promote a healthier community. We join dozens of well-respected health systems across the state in implementing this mandate.
