All employees and affiliated staff of UPMC entities are considered essential health care workers and will be accountable to follow the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) federal vaccine mandate.

Compliance with the federal mandate is encouraged before hire and is required after employment begins. Medical and religious exemption requests may be submitted for consideration.
