Mandatory Welch Senior Living Staff Vaccination Policy

Welch Senior Living has implemented a mandatory COVID-19 staff vaccination policy, effective Wednesday, September 1, requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for all employees.

As the Delta variant surges, research-based evidence suggests that the COVID-19 vaccination provides us with the greatest opportunities to safeguard the health of our residents and the community at large from COVID-19. As such, Welch Senior Living has implemented a mandatory COVID-19 staff vaccination policy, effective Wednesday, September 1, requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for all employees. In making this decision, Allerton House at Harbor Park in Hingham leadership has reviewed the latest data and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and more. I thank each member of our staff for their ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality care possible during these unprecedented times. Our primary concern both with the adoption of this organization-wide COVID-19 staff vaccination policy and with every decision we make is to keep our residents, their families, staff, and all others, healthy and safe. – Tom Karnes
