Groups calling for employers to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for health care workers

DELMARVA- With the recent COVID-19 surge, groups are calling for employers to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for health care workers.

More than 50 major medical group,  including the American Medical Association and the American College of Physicians, recently put out a joint statement.

They expressed that all health care and long term care employers mandate employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Adding, this is a logical fulfillment of the ethical commitment of all health care workers to put patients as well as residents of long-term care facilities first.

They said while they recognize some workers cannot be vaccinated, they constitute a small minority of all workers.
