CMS issued a final rule to end the vaccine mandate for health care workers. The rule will be published in the Federal Register on Monday, June 5, and will be effective 60 days from the actual date of publication. However, CMS will not be enforcing the vaccine mandate from now through the 60-day waiting period. The decision for CMS to end the vaccination requirements was expected based on information provided in a recent memo. MHA issued an issue brief with additional information.
