CareFirst BCBS mandates vaccines for employees

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield is requiring its employees, board directors and guests to get vaccinated for COVID-19, the healthcare company said Aug. 16. 

Employees without a medical or religious exemption have until Nov. 1 to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. The requirement includes remote workers as well as contingent workers who enter CareFirst facilities. 

Brian Pieninck, president and CEO of CareFirst, said, "Requiring COVID-19 vaccinations reinforces what CareFirst stands for as a champion of health and our role in protecting the communities we serve, those we employ and their families."
