HealthPartners announced Thursday that all employees must be vaccinated against COVID-19 and the flu as a condition of employment. 

According to a release, the deadline for employees to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 is Oct. 30 and Nov. 30 for the flu. If an employee has a medical or religious exemption for a vaccine, they will need to submit documentation by the same dates. 

Additionally, all volunteers, students, vendors, and other non-employees who work for HealthParters will also need to be vaccinated to continue in their positions with the nonprofit health care organization.

As of Thursday, HealthPartners reports that almost 75 percent of employees are already vaccinated against COVID-19.
