MHA Statement on Biden Administration Vaccine Requirements

September 9th, 2021 
From President & CEO Steve Walsh

“MHA wholeheartedly supports the policies announced by the Biden Administration today. We are battling a relentless virus, and it will require nothing short of bold and decisive action to defeat it.

“By now, there is no debating the data: vaccines are safe and effective. And a highly vaccinated nation will make for a healthier nation.

“We are proud that MHA member hospitals are helping lead the way by rolling out their own mandatory vaccination policies. Patients in the commonwealth should take comfort in knowing that they are as protected as possible when they enter their local healthcare facilities. Moving forward, our healthcare organizations and clinical leaders will continue to reach out to every corner of their communities to encourage vaccination and get us back on the path to recovery.”
