Waco Hospitals Requiring COVID-19 Vaccination for Employees |  local news

All Baylor Scott & White employees, providers, volunteers, vendors, students and contract staff have to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Oct. 1, unless they have been granted an exemption. Flu vaccination already is required. Employees who do not comply could be fired, spokesperson Megan Snipes said. Baylor Scott & White, which calls itself the largest nonprofit health care system in Texas, has more than 49,000 employees and 52 hospitals, according to its website. About 71% of its “team members” are vaccinated, Snipes said. “With rapidly rising COVID-19 case counts due to the highly contagious Delta variant and the start of the flu season fast approaching, we believe now is the right time to take the next step in achieving a fully vaccinated workforce,” according to a statement from Baylor Scott & White.

Ascension will require its employees, volunteers and vendors entering its facilities to be vaccinated by Nov. 12, according to a press release. That is also Ascension’s deadline for annual flu vaccinations. Ascension has “more than 160,000 associates and 40,000 aligned providers” and has 146 hospitals and more than 40 senior living centers in 19 states and the District of Columbia, according to its website. Baylor Scott & White Health announced its vaccination requirement Wednesday, and Ascension announced its requirement Tuesday. The entities operate Waco’s two main hospital-and-clinic groups.
