D.C. Mandates Health Care Workers to Get COVID Vaccine

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Monday that all health care workers in the city must be vaccinated by Sept. 30.

The order stipulates health care workers receive at least the first dose of either of the two-shot Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine by Sept. 30.

Applicants for positions in the health field must be in the process of vaccination by Sept. 30, particularly those who work in fields that require licenses.

“As we continue to see a rise in the numbers of positive cases among unvaccinated persons across the city, it is necessary that we must ensure all health care workers in the District are vaccinated to decrease the spread of COVID-19,” said Dr. LaQuandra S. Nesbitt, the city’s health director. “This new mandate can reduce the likelihood of a COVID-19 outbreak in health care settings and among vulnerable populations.”

Nesbitt said Bowser had the authority to require health care workers who are privately employed to get vaccinated as a result of legislation.
