COVID-19 Vaccine Policy Agreement
According to Humana's COVID-19 policies, vaccination and masking is required regardless of vaccination status (with exception for eating and drinking) for associates working in a clinical setting where patients receive care (e.g., pharmacy retail locations, clinics, home care). The policy only requires the primary series alone (first and second vaccine). Boosters are encouraged, but not required. Associates have the option to request an accommodation for medical, religious or other personal needs.
For non-clinical settings, COVID-19 vaccination is not required, and masking is voluntary unless otherwise required by federal, state or local law or regulation.
We continue to encourage all associates to become vaccinated, as vaccines remain the best and most effective defense against COVID-19.
If subject to the vaccination policy, I acknowledge that as a condition of my employment I will comply with the policy.
I further acknowledge that: I will be required to comply with the vaccination policy throughout my employment and the policy is subject to change.
This policy will not supersede federal, state, or local laws.
