In a joint statement, several health systems in Nebraska announced that all employees will be required to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The health systems this applies to are: Nebraska Medicine, CHI Health, Methodist Health System, Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, Bryan Health, Boys Town National Research Hospital, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals and Midwest Surgical Hospital.

“The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective at protecting against serious infection and hospitalization. More than 125 professional health associations and health care systems are calling for mandatory vaccination of health care professionals,” the statement reads.

Employees who don’t get vaccinated can apply for medical or religious exemption.
