HealthPartners will require COVID-19 and flu vaccinations
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – HealthPartners will require all employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and influenza. Under the program, employees will be required to be vaccinated or document a medical or religious reason for declining to be vaccinated. Employees will have until Oct. 30 for COVID-19 and Nov. 30 for influenza to become fully vaccinated or document their declination. Volunteers, vendors, students and other non-employees also will be required to be vaccinated.
“Our colleague vaccination program is an important part of our commitment to our patients, members, communities and colleagues,” said HealthPartners President and CEO Andrea Walsh. “Getting vaccinated is the single best way to reduce the chance of spreading, contracting and becoming severely ill with both COVID-19 and influenza.”
Nearly 75 percent of HealthPartners employees have been vaccinated against COVID-19, including more than 98 percent of clinicians.
