The Maine Hospital Association is having preliminary discussions with state health officials about vaccine requirements for staff, once the FDA gives full approval to the vaccines.
The association representing Maine hospitals is advocating for the state to mandate vaccinations for all health care employees in Maine once federal regulators grant the vaccines full approval.
“We would prefer if there is a mandate, that we want the mandate to cover all health care providers,” said Steven Michaud, president of the Maine Hospital Association. “Job No. 1 for us, however we can get it done, is to get them vaccinated.”
