Can a school / workplace make getting a vaccine mandatory?

Mandatory vaccines are most commonly tied to public school attendance, and all 50 states require students to receive some vaccines, with exemptions for medical, religious, and philosophical reasons. Workplaces where there are increased risks of spreading the virus, such as a hospital or nursing home, may make the vaccine mandatory. Even in those cases there still can be exemptions. We advise speaking with the workplaces and schools that are relevant to you to learn if they are considering requirements around COVID-19 vaccines.
