While Auburn Community Hospital is encouraging its 1,100 employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine- it’s not requiring it.
Matthew Chadderdon, VP of marketing and public affairs told The Auburn Citizen that mandating the vaccine is ‘not something’ they are considering.
“We have a strong employee base that’s been vaccinated,” added. “We’ll continue to do more clinics. We communicate with our employees and any employee who hasn’t been vaccinated knows that they can contact a number of departments in the hospital and we’ll take care of them getting vaccinated.”
Around 80% of the hospital’s employees are vaccinated at this point. Auburn Community Hospital is Cayuga County’s largest employer.
