Dartmouth Health has released a new COVID-19 update video with Michael S. Calderwood, MD, MPH, chief quality officer at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. This video provides the latest information on COVID-19 data, vaccine guidance, and the new COVID-19 booster requirement for Dartmouth Health employees.
“We at Dartmouth Health have really been pushing to get all of our staff protected and understanding the importance of this, to the health and safety of our staff, our patients, and everyone in our healthcare system,” Calderwood said. “We’re now expanding the COVID-19 vaccine requirement to include a COVID-19 booster as a condition of employment. We are working to get everyone vaccinated and boosted to the maximum level by later this fall. And while we are only requiring documentation of one booster at this time, I continue to advocate individuals to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance to ensure that you are up-to-date and maximally protected.”
