AUG. 24 UPDATE: The archdiocese’s vaccination policy will take effect Oct. 4, giving unvaccinated employees six weeks—instead of the original five weeks—from FDA approval to get their shots. “We are providing an extra week to allow more time for individuals to plan and schedule their vaccinations,” an archdiocese said in a memo yesterday. Earlier: The Archdiocese of Chicago this week announced all employees and clergy will be required to get vaccinated against COVID-19. While people will have an opportunity to request a medical exemption, religious objections will not be considered. The archdiocese and its agencies, including Catholic Charities and Misericordia, join a growing list of organizations requiring COVID shots for most workers and patrons as the delta variant surges.
