CMS Interim Final Rule on the Vaccine Mandate

On November 4, 2021, the Centers for Medicare, and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued an Interim Final Rule with Comment Period (IFC) outlining how the federal COVID-19 vaccine requirement for health care providers, including Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), will be implemented. The rule was published following a September 9, 2021, announcement by the Biden administration that the COVID-19 vaccine will be required for Medicare and Medicaid certified facilities.

Under the Interim Final Rule with Comment Period, health centers have until January 4, 2022, for staff, students, volunteers, and trainees to be vaccinated and implementation will occur in two phases. By December 6, 2021, staff must have received their first dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or the single dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine. Health centers must also have policies and procedures in place to implement the rule by December 6. By January 4, 2022, staff must have completed their vaccinations.
