Employee Vaccination Data

As of November 5, 2021:

  • Number of Michigan Medicine employees: 25,202*
  • Fully vaccinated (of 25,202): 91.3%
  • Partially vaccinated | On track to be fully vaccinated: 0.3%
  • Approved Exemptions: 4.1% or 1,033 employees
  • Non-Compliant: 4.0% or 1,008 employees were not compliant with the mandate. Twenty-five employees have resigned; others are under disciplinary action; and some are new hires, on leave of absence or have their submissions under review.

Update regarding mandated vaccination for bargained-for employees: As of July 30, Michigan Medicine has required all employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, except for certain bargained-for employees without this option in their contracts. In early November, the Biden-Harris Administration issued a mandate requiring COVID-19 vaccination of eligible staff at health care facilities that participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Michigan Medicine began to work to implement the vaccine mandate across all bargained-for employees who were not covered in the original mandate.
On November 30, a United States federal judge in Louisiana issued a nationwide preliminary injunction against the Medicare and Medicaid COVID-19 vaccine mandate for health care workers. Based on this ruling, Michigan Medicine must pause enforcement of the December 6 deadline for some bargained-for employees who are not yet vaccinated. We will provide additional details as they become available.
