Flu season typically runs from Oct. 1 – March 31, all BSW employees are required to be vaccinated for influenza. If you have already received it this season, provide documentation at your appointment. If you have not received it this season, it will be administered at your appointment. If you think you qualify for an exemption, complete and submit one of the following: Medical exemption request form or Religious exemption request form.
COVID-19 vaccination requirements are effective Oct. 1 for all BSW employees, see below for instructions on how to get vaccinated or share a copy of your vaccine record. If you think you qualify for an exemption, complete and submit the COVID-19 exemption request form.
If you are a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist, Fellow, Licensed Professional Counselor, Nurse Practitioner, Pharmacist, Physician, Physician Assistant, Resident or a Vice President, be sure to self-schedule your professional photo appointment. We recommend that you schedule this appointment for the day of your Employee Health appointment but no later than at least seven days prior to your start date.
With rapidly rising COVID-19 case counts due to the highly contagious Delta variant and the start of the flu season fast approaching, we believe now is the right time to take the next step in achieving a fully vaccinated workforce.
By Oct. 1, 2021, all Baylor Scott & White Health employees, providers (both employed and affiliated), volunteers, vendors, students and contract staff must receive both doses of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, unless granted an exemption.
After Oct. 1, 2021, new hires must be fully vaccinated (meaning they cannot start until they are 14 days post receiving their second shot of Moderna or Pfizer or the single-shot J&J vaccine) or obtain an approved exemption prior to their Employee Health appointment.
The Delta variant is the most contagious and dangerous strain we have seen to date, leading to exponentially increasing rates of severe illness and hospitalization. The overwhelming majority of these cases are among the unvaccinated.
We are committed to making the communities we serve healthier. Whether you are a patient, family member or employee, you can be assured that we have taken every measure to protect you.
If you are not yet fully vaccinated, here is what you need to do prior to your Employee Health appointment:
If starting on or before Oct. 1, like the rest of our workforce you will be required to be vaccinated or have an approved exemption by Oct. 1. Please keep in mind that the vaccination process can take up to six weeks and may delay your start date.
If starting after Oct. 1, you will be required to be vaccinated or have an approved exemption by your start date.
You can schedule a vaccination appointment at one of our Baylor Scott & White pharmacies, clinics or urgent care centers through the MyBSWHealth app or on MyBSWHealth.com. You can also get the vaccine at a non-Baylor Scott & White facility.
Please bring your CDC-issued vaccine card to your Employee Health appointment.
All exemptions are factually based and determined by the Baylor Scott & White COVID-19 vaccine exemption committee. Medical contraindications (including allergies to ingredients in the COVID-19 vaccines or severe allergic reactions), certain conditions covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or sincerely held religious tenets or beliefs are considered acceptable reasons for being exempted from the requirement to have the COVID-19 vaccine; however, other reasons may exist based upon CDC guidance.
