CHICAGO – AMITA Health will require all associates to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 12, 2021.

The announcement comes as the nation deals with the increasing number of cases caused by variants, including the far reaching delta variant .

“The health and safety of all is our first and foremost priority and our medical experts agree—vaccination is our best way out of this pandemic,” said Keith Parrott, president and CEO of AMITA Health. “These vaccines have proven to be very effective in lessening illness in breakthrough cases. Only by vaccinating will we stop this virus from circulating and mutating.”

AMITA Health said Tuesday in a press release it will make ‘reasonable accommodations’ for those unable to receive the vaccine for health or religious reasons. AMITA is planning an upcoming education and listening session in the upcoming weeks for associates.
