The Immunization of Workers for COVID-19 Policy is now approved and in effect as of Sept. 14, 2021. It requires all employees, medical and midwifery staff, students, volunteers and contracted healthcare providers to be fully immunized for COVID-19 by Oct. 31.
This policy will help our vital frontline healthcare teams who continue to provide incredible care to anyone who needs it and maintain a safe environment for all patients, and anyone who visits or works at our healthcare facilities.
Vaccines are an important tool within a larger system of controls. Our strongest line of defence is the integration of immunization with appropriate use of Personal Protective Equipment, hand hygiene, physical distancing and other Infection Prevention and Control measures. Immunization against COVID-19 is the most effective means to prevent its spread, prevent outbreaks in our facilities, preserve our workforce capacity to support the healthcare system, and protect our workers, patients and visitors.
Here’s what you need to know:
COVID-19 immunization appointments can be booked through ahs.ca/vaccine using the Government of Alberta’s new Alberta Vaccine Booking System.
