Nationwide Children’s Hospital updated the COVID-19 vaccination policy on August 4, 2023.
The COVID-19 vaccine is now optional for new employees, students, residents, employed medical staff, non-employed medical staff, volunteers, contracted workers and vendors.
COVID-19 vaccination remains the best way to protect yourself, our patients, and the community against the spread of the virus. Although vaccination is no longer required in order to work at Nationwide Children’s, it is recommended to remain up to date on your COVID-19 vaccination to ensure continued protection. Ongoing review of Nationwide Children’s COVID-19 and other vaccine requirements will continue to occur to ensure the safety and well-being of our patients, families, and staff.
