COVID-19 Vaccination Notice

Kaiser Permanente employees are required to complete their COVID-19 vaccination (one dose of Johnson & Johnson; second dose of either Moderna or Pfizer) or receive an approved religious or medical exemption. Employees who have not met the requirements must be placed on unpaid administrative leave, or otherwise prevented from working pending compliance. As of December 8, employees who have not submitted proof of completed vaccination and who do not have an approved exemption are no longer eligible to continue employment and will be terminated. Any employee whose request for an exemption was denied will have at least 30 days to comply with the COVID-19 vaccination policy after the date of denial.
