DAV response to VA health worker vaccination requirement

posted on

With COVID-19 infection rates rising and its Delta variant becoming more widespread, it is imperative that the VA continues to provide the millions of American veterans who rely on the department for their health care needs with the highest quality of care possible, including access to COVID-19 vaccinations and safe facilities. DAV applauds Secretary McDonough’s announcement that the VA will now require its health care workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19. We are confident that enacting this measure will help protect the safety of both patients and staff, allowing for providers to continue delivering high-quality health care at VA facilities.
