Tarrant County Hospital District Mandates Vaccinations

A taxpayer-funded hospital district in Tarrant County is mandating COVID-19 vaccines for its employees, despite an executive order from Gov. Greg Abbott seeking to ban such mandates.

After orders from President Joe Biden, the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is requiring that all healthcare facilities that accept Medicare or Medicaid mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for employees.

According to CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, “Today’s [Nov. 4] action addresses the risk of unvaccinated health care staff to patient safety and provides stability and uniformity across the nation’s health care system to strengthen the health of people and the providers who care for them.”
