NY City has mandated that all CDPAP Caregivers must receive a COVID-19 Vaccine Immunization by December 27, 2021. This is in addition to the existing mandate already required for home health aides, personal care aides, and nurses.
We are committed to helping all of our CDPAP caregivers receive a vaccination immunization before this date.
Starting December 27, 2021, all CDPAP caregivers working in NYC must be vaccinated to continuing caring for patients.

Questions and Answers
Who is required to be vaccinated?
All CDPAP personal assistants are required to be vaccinated. This is in addition to the existing mandate for Edison Home Health Care employees that have interaction with consumers, which includes home health aides (HHAs), Personal Care Aides (PCAs), and Nurses.
Are there any exceptions?
CDPAP personal assistants and employees that have a qualified Medical exemption are not required to have a vaccine.
What qualifies for a Medical exemption?
If a licensed physician or certified nurse practitioner certifies that immunization with COVID-19 vaccine is detrimental to your health, based upon a pre-existing health condition, you will not be required to have a vaccine. This exemption must be in accordance with generally accepted medical standards and is only applicable only until such immunization is found to no longer to be detrimental to your health. The nature and duration of the medical exemption must be stated explicitly by the licensed physician or certified nurse practitioner.
