(Rochester, MN)  —  The state’s most well-known health system is the latest provider to require that all staff be vaccinated for COVID-19.  On Monday, the Mayo Clinic announced that full vaccination must be completed by September 17th.  Those who refuse must complete a “declination process,” which would result in them taking part in education modules, wearing face masks at all times at work, and social distancing while on campus.  Officials said it was imperative to make sure everyone is as protected as possible while the pandemic continues.  The health system reports that a high number of staff have already been vaccinated.
