Employees of UnityPoint Health will have to disclose what religion they follow to their employer just to apply for a religious exemption to the employer’s vaccine mandate of its employees.
The organization distributed its religious exemption form on Monday. It states:
“Religious exemptions will not be allowed for requests based on philosophical, scientific, moral, personal or medical opposition to vaccination. All requests for exemption due to religious beliefs are subject to review and final approval by a designated UnityPoint Health committee.”
So a “committee” will determine whether an employee’s own religious belief is “good enough” to receive a religious exemption to the COVID-19 vaccine.
