VA tells health staff they must get vaccine
Last updated 8/25/2021 at 10:17am
The Department of Veterans Affairs recently announced that they will require their frontline medical staff to get the COVID vaccine. Specifically, they listed “physicians, dentists, podiatrists, optometrists, registered nurses, physician assistants, expanded-function dental auxiliaries and chiropractors who work in Veterans Health Administration facilities, visit VHA facilities or provide direct care to those the VA serves.”
In other words, anyone who touches you in a VA medical setting, breathes on you or handles something they’re about to put in your mouth has to get the vaccine.
