Volunteers of America National Services Healthcare Staff – Contractor – Volunteer Vaccine Policy (8-18-21)

The safety of our residents/client/participants and staff are a top priority at Volunteers of American National Services. In our continued efforts to prioritize the safety of those we serve – the most vulnerable to the ravages of COVID-19, we will be requiring all of our staff, volunteers and contractors to have received all doses of the vaccine by October 1, 2021 in order to be fully vaccinated by October 15, 2021.

While we recognize all the hard work that has happened so far in our fight against COVID-19, we are still combating this virus, including the Delta variant, which is causing new waves of infections across the US. No one can predict if and when the virus will change again, but we do know one thing – the vaccines are working. Vaccinated individuals are far less likely to have severe symptoms, hospitalizations and death.

In addition, we anticipate that regulations will soon be coming requiring vaccinations for senior care providers. Our response will provide ample time for scheduling and receiving the vaccinations for all those affected. Questions or inquiries can be directed to vaccine@voa.org. To view the policy, click here.
