Moderna will require COVID-19 vaccination for all workers in the United States, effective October 1, 2021. Requests for medical or religious exemptions will be considered on an individual basis. All Moderna workers are still required to follow local health authority and Moderna health and safety protocols when on-site.

In alignment with public health strategies designed to slow the spread of COVID-19, the Company previously implemented heightened guidelines, including mask wearing, as well as COVID-19 testing to help ensure the safety of its workers and business continuation. The Company also made its COVID-19 vaccine available to its workers in the U.S. under Emergency Use Authorization starting in December 2020.
