Sutter Health will require COVID vaccines for employees

SACRAMENTO, Calif. —
Sutter Health said Wednesday that it will make COVID-19 vaccines mandatory for employees as the delta variant drives surging virus cases across the nation.”The only way to get ahead of this virus once and for all is for everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated as soon as possible,” said Dr. William Isenberg, Sutter Health’s chief quality and safety officer. “The unfortunate reality is that the delta variant is driving a surge in hospitalizations throughout our network and around the country, mostly among unvaccinated people.”Sutter’s COVID-19 vaccine policy applies to employees, physicians, volunteers and vendors. People will need to be fully vaccinated with documentation by Sept. 30 or have received an “approved accommodation for a valid medical contraindication or religious exemption,” Sutter Health said in a news release. Sarah Krevans, president and CEO of Sutter Health, said in a statement that the majority of Sutter’s workforce has already been inoculated. Kaiser Permanente said earlier this week it would also make vaccines mandatory.
