What requirements are in place to keep the workforce safe and healthy?

To carry out its mission, it is of critical importance for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to keep our patients, families and workforce safe and healthy and to support the health of our global community. In keeping with this, all workforce members who work in patient care buildings or who provide patient care are required to receive an annual influenza vaccine. Candidates other than those in positions with regularly scheduled hours in New Jersey, must attest to not using tobacco products. In addition, CHOP will require all workforce members at any CHOP location to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. While our aim is to implement the COVID-19 vaccine mandate following full federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, in the event the epidemiology changes, we see increased COVID-19 disease activity and/or the FDA experiences delays in the full approval process, CHOP will revisit the timing of the mandate. All individuals are strongly encouraged to get the vaccine now.  Employees may request exemptions to any CHOP vaccine requirement for religious and medical reasons.
