Mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy update
In consideration of the recent changes in public health guidance, direct consultation with VCH and the extremely high vaccination rate amongst staff, we will be moving to suspend the COVID-19 mandatory proof of vaccination policy for existing staff and volunteers. This change is effective March 28.
All newly hired staff and volunteers will still need to comply with the policy.
There is overwhelming evidence that vaccines are our best defense. They continue to provide excellent protection against serious effects from COVID-19.
