ANA Supports Mandated COVID-19 Vaccinations for Nurses and All Health Care Professionals
The American Nurses Association (ANA) supports health care employers mandating nurses and all health care personnel to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in alignment with current recommendations for immunization by public health officials. We call on all nurses to uphold their professional and ethical obligations to model the same prevention measures as their patients. ANA’s decision to support COVID-19 vaccine mandates for nurses aligns with its longstanding position on immunizations, which emphasizes that effective protection of the public health mandates that all individuals receive immunizations against vaccine-preventable diseases.
