Johns Hopkins to require vaccinations for all employees
June 9, 2021 - While many health care workers have voluntarily been given a Covid-19 vaccination, Johns Hopkins Medicine is making vaccinations a requirement for all workers. On Wednesday, Johns Hopkins Medicine announced a new policy that requires all clinical and non-clinical personnel to be fully vaccinated by Sept. 1. “Since Johns Hopkins Medicine first offered the Covid-19 vaccine to our personnel in December 2020, we know that more than three-quarters of our clinically facing staff have been vaccinated. To avoid a rise in viral transmission as restrictions are lifted, we need as many people vaccinated as possible," Paul Rothman, dean of the medical faculty for the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, said in the release.
