More than 50 major medical organizations released a joint statement July 26, 2021 calling "for all health-care and long-term care employers to require their employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19

The statement said "Vaccination is the primary way to put the pandemic behind us and avoid the return of stringent public health measures. ... As the health care community leads the way in requiring vaccines for our employees, we hope all other employers across the country will follow our lead and implement effective policies to encourage vaccination. The health and safety of U.S. workers, families, communities, and the nation depends on it."
