Intermountain Healthcare vaccine requirement
SALT LAKE CITY — Intermountain Healthcare will require all caregivers to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Intermountain Healthcare is the largest healthcare provider in Utah, and they said the requirement comes to comply with federal vaccination requirements announced by President Biden last month.
Intermountain said they estimate 80% of Intermountain caregivers are already fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
“Intermountain caregivers and others working in Intermountain facilities must receive at least one dose of the Pfizer or Moderna Vaccine, or Johnson & Johnson vaccine by January 5, 2022. The due date for the second dose of Pfizer of Moderna is February 9, 2022.”
“Intermountain currently requires caregivers to be vaccinated for other communicable diseases, including influenza, hepatitis, measles and mumps, and pertussis.
“As with other required vaccines, Intermountain caregivers can apply for an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement for a medical condition or religious belief,” Intermountain said on Wednesday.
