Community Health of South Florida is making COVID-19 vaccines mandatory for all staff members.
In a Tuesday news release, the health care center said all staff, students training in its facilities, and volunteers will have to be vaccinated by September 30.
"We have lost far too many patients, community members, and even team members to a lack of protection from the virus," Community Health CEO Brodes H. Hartley, Jr. said. "Our local hospitals and healthcare institutions are overrun by the unvaccinated falling seriously ill. We need to take action."
