Before you spend hours debating whether to mandate your staff to get vaccinated for COVID-19, you should figure out if you really have a choice. It may not actually be up to you.
As reports of new variants of the virus are all over the news, and data to suggest that infection rates and deaths across the country are spiking, fear is driving some states to make this controversial decision for you. Some states have taken a hard line and have implemented a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for healthcare workers – many mandates are based on location and the population being treated.
Within this tool, you’ll find three charts that summarize states that currently have COVID-19 vaccine mandates and those that don’t. Also included are source information should you want more data, and deadlines for implementation.
- States WITHOUT COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates for Healthcare Workers
- States with Laws that Prohibit COVID Vaccine mandates
- States WITH COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates for Healthcare Workers
Regardless of whether your state has a COVID-19 vaccine mandate today or not, this could change tomorrow. If infection rates continue to expand, more states may follow with requirements for healthcare workers, so it is important that you keep up on your state and local government vaccination requirements.
