Most employees in 8 Health Systems in Omaha and Lincoln Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Published: Nov. 8, 2021

More than 90% of employees of the eight Omaha and Lincoln health systems that require their workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 have gotten their shots.

The health systems’ chief medical officers jointly announced the plan in early August, well ahead of President Joe Biden’s September announcement that all government contractors — including those that receive Medicare and Medicaid dollars — require employee vaccination.

At Methodist, some 98% of nearly 8,000 employees are fully compliant, either vaccinated or with an accepted exemption.
