CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Seven of Charlotte’s largest independent medical practices announced today that they will require that employees be vaccinated for COVID-19 by Oct. 31, 2021.

The following are the Charlotte-area medical practices now requiring Covid-19 vaccinations of all their employees:

  • Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center
  • Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates
  • Charlotte Eye Ear Nose and Throat Associates
  • Charlotte Gastroenterology & Hepatology
  • OrthoCarolina
  • Surgical Specialists of Charlotte
  • Tryon Medical Partners

This decision was made to address the recent resurgence of COVID-19 in the Charlotte region and across the nation due to the highly contagious Delta Variant infecting unvaccinated people - something that can only be fully addressed by being vaccinated.

The COVID-19 vaccination is proven to be effective in limiting illness and death among the percentage of vaccinated people who contract the illness.
