(Recorded Webinar) Federal COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates – Updates on the Legal and Compliance Challenges

This course is closed to new enrollments. If you are interested in compliance trainings for health centers, please see our training topic page here.

Duration: 65 minutes
Recorded on: 1/13/2022

Note: This webinar was recorded prior to the release of the Supreme Court of the United States' ruling on the CMS and OSHA vaccine mandates on 1/13/22. For more information on the rulings, please see our blog posts here (CMS) and here (OSHA).

Since federal vaccine mandates were announced in September 2021, the mandates have faced a series of legal challenges. Health centers and other health care providers have faced a host of compliance challenges. In this webinar, we will provide an update on the legal challenges, including reflections on the January 7th Supreme Court arguments on the CMS and OSHA vaccine mandates. We will also discuss how health centers should respond to the December 28th guidance from CMS on enforcement of its vaccine mandate, including the updated compliance deadlines. We will also discuss the current status of OSHA’s COVID-19 Healthcare ETS. 

Please note: This webinar is offered as a complimentary product to all Health Center Compliance Premium Plan Subscribers. For more information on our Premium Plan, click here or Contact Us.
