Exemptions: 

An individual may not simply opt out of vaccination. They must submit a medical or religious exemption to the Healthcare Institution where such individual works according to the policies set by the institution. The Institution will determine if an exemption applies. 

 

Healthcare Institutions and organizations that are granting exemptions must create appropriate exemption policies to implement this regulation. Institutions may establish stricter vaccination policies for their workers, contractors, and volunteers that exceed the requirements of the Vaccine Mandate Regulation, to the extent otherwise permitted by applicable law. 

 

A Healthcare Worker or Healthcare Institution Worker who is granted an exemption must strictly follow the applicable accommodation, including documenting their participation in the accommodation process that their employer or institution has agreed upon. 

 

Healthcare Institutions are required to keep records of vaccination status of all vaccinated individuals, exemptions requested and granted, and participation in accommodations granted. Records must be made available to PDPH upon request. Self-employed Healthcare Workers must carefully document the need for exemption and ongoing compliance with routine testing as set forth below under “Accommodations for Exceptions.” 

 

Medical 

The Healthcare Worker or Healthcare Institution Worker may request an exemption by submitting a certification from a licensed healthcare provider to the appropriate Healthcare Institution. Medical exemptions must include a statement signed by a licensed healthcare provider that states the exemption applies to the specific individual submitting the certification because the COVID-19 vaccine is medically contraindicated for the individual. The certification must also be signed by the Healthcare Worker or Healthcare Institution Worker. For the purposes of the Vaccine Mandate Regulation a licensed healthcare provider means a physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant licensed by an authorized state licensing board. 

 

Religious  

The Healthcare Worker or Healthcare Institution Worker may request an exemption by submitting a signed statement in writing that the individual has a sincerely held religious belief that prevents them from receiving the COVID-19 vaccination. An institution may request the worker explain in the certification why the worker’s religious belief prevents them receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Philosophical or moral exemptions are not permitted. 

 

Accommodations for Exemptions 

 Healthcare Institutions must instruct exempted workers to comply with, and such workers must comply with, one of the following options for accommodation: 

  1. Routine Testing: Exempt individuals must be tested by a PCR test or an antigen test for COVID-19 at least twice (2x) per week. The two tests should be spread out appropriately over the week, but there is not a required time interval to account for varying schedules. 

  2. Virtual accommodation: If possible, the Healthcare Institution can create a fully virtual option for the individual.
