UDPDATE AUG. 20, 2021: PHO orders regarding mandatory vaccinations

BCCNM reminds nurses and midwives they must follow PHO orders including meeting mandatory vaccination status for working at certain sites​. Nurses must also follow organizational policies and guidelines.

For personal reasons, I don’t want to/can’t have a COVID-19 vaccine. Will I lose my licence if I refus​e?

All midwives must follow the Provincial Health Officer’s orders, including meeting mandatory vaccination status for working at certain sites. While you’re not required to have a COVID-19 vaccine to be registered with BCCNM, as a registrant of the college, you are responsible for protecting your clients from the risk of infection. Nurses and midwives have a professional, ethical and legal duty to provide clients with safe care. Review provincial and federal and your employer’s/organization’s policies about immunizations and disease control.

The Policy on Infection Prevention and Control provides more information about your responsibilities to provide safe care to clients.
