Rogge Dunn Quoted in WFAA article concerning Baylor Scott & White requiring vaccinations by Oct.1

Rogge Dunn Group’s Rogge Dunn was quoted in a WFAA article on July 28th concerning a new mandate from Baylor Scott & White, stating that all employees, providers and volunteers must receive both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine by Oct. 1. This mandate also extends to vendors, students and contract staff as well.

This comes in the wake of Dallas County returning to the “extreme caution” level of its COVID-19 risk scale.

Rogge Dunn explained that OSHA requires employers to make a workplace safe for their employees.

“If the employer isn’t requiring mandatory vaccinations, they better be observing social distancing, requiring masks, plastic dividers and those types of things because if they don’t, and one employee picks up the phone and calls OSHA, OSHA can be out there investigating and fining that employer,” said Dunn.

Baylor Scott & White is not the first Texas hospital system to require employees to be vaccinated. Several months ago Houston Methodist was facing a lawsuit from its own employees for requiring the same thing. That lawsuit was lost and since then the CDC has updated it’s guidelines to recommending that vaccinated individuals begin wearing their masks indoors again.
