COVID-19 Vaccine Now Mandatory at all WakeMed Locations

WakeMed is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of the community we serve. To ensure we can deliver on this promise and keep our staff, patients, and community safe, WakeMed has joined many other hospitals in requiring all employees, providers, volunteers and contractors to receive several vaccinations, including influenza and COVID-19, or obtain an approved medical or religious exemption. Details about this requirement will be provided during the onboarding process.
