Middlesex Health Requires Employees to Get Vaccinated

Press Release, August 5, 2021

MIDDLETOWN— Middlesex Health announced today that it is requiring all health system employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 1 unless they are granted an exemption or deferral.

The mandate also applies to all members of the medical staff and to volunteers, students, vendors and contractors.

“As an organization, we believe this is the right thing to do,” says Middlesex Health President and CEO Vincent G. Capece, Jr. “The COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and the decision to mandate vaccinations was made with the health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors in mind.”

Several organizations, including the Connecticut Hospital Association, the American Hospital Association and the American Nurses Association, have announced that they support mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for health care workers. With this announcement, Middlesex Health becomes the latest health system in Connecticut to impose such a mandate.
