As a healthcare organization, Intermountain requires immunizations as a condition of employment, outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), because they protect us and others—patients, members, colleagues, families, and communities—from illness and disease. A fully vaccinated workforce provides assurance to our patients that they are being cared for in the safest clinical environment possible.

All employees, including those not involved with patient care, must receive the following vaccinations:

  • MMR
  • Tdap
  • Varicella 
  • 2-step TB
  • Annual Influenza
  • Hepatitis B for some jobs

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has withdrawn the COVID-19 vaccine requirement for healthcare workers, in response the end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency. The requirement, announced in November 2021, mandated that healthcare workers and contractors at Medicare- and Medicaid-certified facilities must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. After careful evaluation and to align with CMS regulations, Intermountain Health will be removing the COVID-19 vaccine requirement, effective immediately.

More information about vaccination requirements, including what documentation to provide, where to get your vaccines, the exemption process, and more, can be discussed with an Intermountain recruiter.
