We received our first shipment of the COVID-19 vaccine on December 17th and started vaccinating our first round of 1A employees on December 18th.

We are following CDC guidelines and administering the COVID-19 vaccine to identified 1A staff at the hospital (patient-facing, clinical staff) first. The CDC recommends a staggered schedule, allowing for a day off after administration of the second dose, for possible side effects. We are following this staggered approach to minimize the potential impact on staffing. We are following CDC guidelines for the second dose (19-23 days).
We are currently in Phase 1B - Tier 1 of vaccine distribution. The vaccine is available to anyone over age 65, and all people over 50 who also live in a multigenerational household. This is in addition to populations eligible during Phase 1A including health care workers at high risk for COVID-19 infection, first responders, people who live or work in long-term care facilities, and all other workers in health settings who are at risk of COVID-19. Determine your eligibility, sign up for a notification when you are eligible, and find a local COVID-19 vaccine clinic using the Phase Finder tool

No, it is not mandatory but we are strongly encouraging employees to get the vaccine for their own protection and safety as well as those of their co-workers and patients.
