Penn Highlands not requiring COVID-19 vaccines after CMM mandate on hold

DuBois, PA – Hospitals, including our Penn Highlands Healthcare facilities, will be holding off on requiring COVID-19 vaccines for their employees.

That’s because the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services issued a memorandum stating that it will not enforce its vaccine mandate while it is being challenged in court.

Based on this memorandum, Penn Highlands Healthcare will not require COVID-19 vaccination for its employees at this time pending the outcome of any nationwide legal challenges/decisions.

However, they strongly encourage everyone to be vaccinated for their safety and for the safety of their patients.

Penn Highlands Healthcare continues to offer COVID-19 vaccine clinics. For more information and to sign up, visit www.phhealthcare.org.vaccine.
