We want every employee to be able to walk into work knowing that we’ve done everything we can to promote and foster a safe and healthy working environment. Mandatory vaccines are a large part of that. We trust the science.

ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP (ENTA) announced today that, starting September 7, 2021, all physicians, staff, and employees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

With the COVID-19 virus continuing to impact the country, and the emergence of the Delta Variant, ENTA’s board determined that mandatory vaccinations are the best way to keep employees and patients protected against ongoing and future outbreaks.

Therefore, in a move that is becoming increasingly prevalent among health care groups, universities, and other companies, employees and physicians must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to provide a safe environment for everyone who walks through their doors.

As healthcare professionals in the fields of otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) and allergy/immunology, ENTA’s physicians and staff are at an increased risk of being exposed to and contracting the virus. Through several months of research and careful consideration, ENTA determined that full vaccinations are the best way to protect all physicians and staff.

“COVID-19 is something we have taken extremely seriously throughout the pandemic, and this decision is not one that we reached lightly,” says ENTA CEO Bob Glazer. “In approving this requirement, the Board and executive leadership team reviewed recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the New York and New Jersey Departments of Health, our own OSHA Advisory Committee, and other relevant resources.”

Glazer continues, “In accordance with ENTA’s duty to provide and maintain a workplace that is free of any and all known hazards, we are adopting this policy to safeguard the health of our employees and their families, our patients and visitors, and the community at large from infectious diseases whose impact and spread can be reduced by vaccinations.”

“We trust the science—and it is our duty to provide a safe and protected environment for any who choose to work for this practice,” says ENTA President Robert Green, MD. “These vaccines have been researched, tested, and proven effective. We want every employee to be able to walk into work knowing that we’ve done everything we can to promote and foster a safe and healthy working environment. Mandatory vaccines are a large part of that.”
