COVID-19 Vaccination Mandates and Requirements for Travel Healthcare Workers
Orders for COVID-19 vaccine mandates have been implemented for healthcare workers nationwide and vary by facility, specialty, and state. We understand these requirements directly affect our travelers, which is why we’re diligently working to identify the requirements and changes as they happen.
Providing the most accurate and timely information on this topic is a priority. If you’re a healthcare traveler and are seeking information or guidance regarding COVID-19 vaccine mandates, please reach out to your recruiter.
01.No, the COVID-19 vaccine is not required by LRS Healthcare. However, many facilities and states nationwide require proof of vaccination for healthcare workers who work in their facility. If you are considering taking an assignment at one of the facilities with a COVID-19 vaccine mandate, you will need to be fully vaccinated before you start.
02.If you are unsure and concerned about your current facility implementing a vaccine mandate, reach out to your LRS Healthcare recruiter for guidance. They can help guide you through the unknown, and if for some reason your assignment is canceled due to your vaccination status, we will help you find a new one ASAP!
