Joint Statement From Nebraska Health Care Systems Regarding COVID-19 Vaccinations for Employees

Published: Aug. 12, 2021

To ensure the safety of our patients, employees and communities, several of Nebraska’s leading health systems will require all employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective at protecting against serious infection and hospitalization. More than 125 professional health associations and health care systems are calling for mandatory vaccination of health care professionals. Unvaccinated employees and physicians may apply to their employer for medical or religious exemption.

Each of our organizations take very seriously the responsibility of providing health care to people of all ages and all backgrounds in our communities. Vaccination against COVID-19 is an important step to stop the pandemic and allow our teams to work in the safest way possible.

We strongly encourage vaccination for all eligible individuals in the community.
