NYSDOH COVID-19 Booster Mandate
Effective February 18, 2022, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) announced that they are not enforcing the mandatory Booster Vaccination requirements that are outlined below. None of our employees are required to vaccinate. The NYSDOH has advised that they will “reassess in three (3) months whether additional steps need to be taken to increase booster rates among the healthcare workforce.”
On January 21, 2022, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) issued a Dear Administrator Letter (DAL) regarding the recent COVID-19 vaccine amendment for health care workers.
The NYSDOH Mandate is for ALL employees, both Field and Office Staff. Below are the guidelines:
- Received J&J vaccination BEFORE November 21, 2021, you are eligible for a booster now.
- Received J&J vaccination AFTER November 22, 2021, must have COVID-19 Booster within 5 months from the vaccine date.
- Received Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna primary series BEFORE September 21, 2021, you are eligible for a booster now.
- Received Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna primary series AFTER September 22, 2021, must have COVID-19 Booster within 5 months from last vaccine date.
Please continue to send in your Proof of Vaccination Card to your Branch if you choose to receive the booster.
