All VA's nationwide are requiring the COVID-19 Vaccination. This mandate has been established by the national VHA Office of Academic Affiliations in conjunction with the CDC, as it has been added to the CDC guidelines web site: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/adults/rec-vac/hcw.html
This does not include boosters, just the initial two dose. However, if you received the single dose of J&J, we are requiring at least one booster. Exemptions must be approved through the VA well in advance before the students rotation.
Aleda Lutz vaccine exemption forms and more infrmation can be found: https://www.va.gov/saginaw-health-care/work-with-us/internships-and-fellowships/health-professional-trainee-information/
Much like the Influenza vaccine, all Health Professions Trainees (HPT) training in
a VA facility must be fully vaccinated or have an exemption filed (medical or religious)
with the Office of the Designated Education Officer at the VA using the following
VA Form 10-263.
COVID vaccines are available through our occupational Health Department.
