MHA Statement on Mandated COVID-19 Vaccines 

June 24, 2021 
From MHA President & CEO Steve Walsh: 
“MHA stands with our members who are making COVID-19 vaccinations mandatory for all employees and fully supports the workforce vaccination policies put in place by each of our members.  

“We feel strongly that, given their mission to deliver the saftest possible care, our healthcare professionals hold a distinct responsibility to get vaccinated. We have already seen the unmistakable difference that vaccines have made within our care settings. As patients are welcomed back into these settings, it is critical that they feel as protected as possible. This starts with a widely vaccinated workforce.   

“Every healthcare organization is continuing to listen to the questions and concerns of their workers regarding vaccination, and are offering educational opportunities so that every employee can feel comfortable getting their shot.”
