Jewish Senior Life mandates employee vaccinations

Jewish Senior Life is requiring all employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, effective Oct. 1.

“The increasing concern with the surging COVID-19 Delta variant has resulted in our decision to make employee vaccinations mandatory,” said Michael King, president and CEO of Jewish Senior Life. 

“According to the CDC, the delta variant is much more contagious and more dangerous than other known versions of the virus. The past 17 months have been a time of tremendous personal and work-related stress for all of us. Jewish Senior Life has succeeded because of our hero employees who have persevered. Although over 80% of our staff are fully vaccinated, our organization must continue to do more to ensure the health and safety of our valued employees and all we serve.”

Jewish Senior Life employs more than 1,000 individuals in the greater Rochester area. 

Serving people of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds, Jewish Senior Life is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) guided by the values of honoring family and aging in place.
