Required Immunizations for Michigan Medicine Employees

Michigan Medicine policy 04-06-002, Infection Control Practices for Hospital Personnel: Prevention of Spread of Communicable Diseases (Michigan Medicine Internal Link only) mandates that employees and volunteers document proof of immunity/vaccination to certain communicable diseases.  These include Measles, Rubella (German measles), Mumps, Varicella (chicken pox), and Pertussis. Immunity to those diseases will be documented at the new employee health assessment. If proof of immunity is not available, blood can be drawn to assess immune status or vaccine can be given. 

The Michigan Medicine Mandatory COVID-19 policy requires that Michigan Medicine workforce members be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or possess an approved exemption.  OHS will confirm COVID-19 vaccination status with all new employees during the new employee health assessment.  New employees not vaccinated will be required to obtain the COVID-19 vaccination or apply for an exemption.
