Health organizations are calling for mandatory COVID-19 vaccination for healthcare workers. Leading public health organizations and a growing number of independent health professionals are gathering to pressure health centers to make COVID-19 vaccines mandatory for all health professionals.

On Tuesday, seven health organizations—including the American Society of Health Epidemiologists, the Association of Infectious Epidemiologists, the American Society for Infectious Diseases, and the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Association—issued a unanimous statement saying "the COVID-19 vaccine should be working conditions for all healthcare professionals.”
Full vaccination of healthcare workers has the advantage of protecting at-risk patients, healthcare professionals, and society at large. Vaccination missions are very effective among health care workers. For decades, they noted, many health centers have imposed seasonal influenza vaccinations to great success. During the 2019-2020 flu season, health centers that mandated influenza vaccination vaccinated 94 percent of workers, while only 70 percent of health workers in unlicensed centers were vaccinated.

Since the beginning of June, the authors note that there are approximately 150 cases of COVID-19 per week among nursing home residents. Although nearly 80 percent of nursing home residents have already been vaccinated, only 55 percent of nursing home workers across the country have been vaccinated. In contrast, more than 96 percent of physicians reported being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in the country last month, according to a survey by the American Medical Association last month. Among the unvaccinated physicians, 45% said they intended to be vaccinated.
