MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Prevea Health notified staff in all locations that they are required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or complete an exemption process by Oct. 5.
The requirement was announced on Wednesday, Aug. 4.
“Scientific data shows us the current COVID-19 vaccines are not only safe, but effective in protecting individuals from contracting COVID-19 or becoming hospitalized with the virus,” said Dr. Ashok Rai. “Data also shows us positive cases of this virus and its highly contagious Delta variant continue to rise to very concerning levels, with an overwhelming majority of positive cases affecting unvaccinated individuals. As a trusted source of health care in Wisconsin, it is critical we take this next step to protect our patients, staff and communities.”
