AMN Healthcare is facing unprecedented challenges created by the COVID-19 virus. We feel it is important to share information about how decisions are made at AMN during this crisis, and the ways we are balancing the impact of these decisions on our clients, healthcare professionals, team members and others that depend on AMN. We will be sharing insights and information on how AMN responds by Doing the Right Thing.

Top FAQs

If I get vaccinated at a location not affiliated with a hospital, what documentation do I need to share with AMN Healthcare?

If you choose to be vaccinated at a location not affiliated with a hospital within your state, please note the following guidelines from AMN Healthcare. Our goal is to assist and support you in this process and ensure that you receive both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine you receive.

  • Please make sure that your Provider is notified and aware that you are in the process of receiving and/or scheduled to receive the COVID-19 vaccination
  • Please register locally or with your state for the COVID-19 vaccine
  • If you are planning to receive your 2nd dose at your next assignment, please contact your AMN Healthcare Credentialing Analyst to coordinate in advance with the facility

 

Please note vaccine supply varies across states and facilities so it’s important to coordinate with our team to ensure there are no delays in you receiving your 2nd dose.

If I receive the COVID-19 vaccine, is it safe to receive another vaccine after?

Current guidelines from the CDC advise waiting a minimum of 14 days to receive any additional vaccinations after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. To learn more about the guidelines for flu vaccine, other vaccines and TB screening, please refer to this page from the CDC.

How will AMN Healthcare support me if I receive my first vaccine dose on one assignment and move to another assignment or stop working with AMN prior to receiving the2nd dose?

Our commitment to you, your health and safety is our priority. We encourage all healthcare providers to obtain the COVID-19 vaccination.

If you are ending one assignment and not sure if a future assignment can provide a 2nd dose, we strongly recommend you extend at your existing assignment, or wait to receive the vaccination at a location where you know you can obtain both doses.

With current limited vaccination supply, facilities generally only have one vaccine type. Your likelihood to receive the second dose increases if you stay within the same facility or health system.
Although AMN cannot guarantee an extension, we will work with both you and the facility for extension requests.

What protected or private health information (e.g. immunocompromised) can or will be shared with facility leaders in the prioritization of high-risk essential healthcare professionals?

AMN Healthcare protects your privacy and security of your personal health information. The healthcare facilities may request more information as part of their assessment prior to administering the COVID-19 vaccine to ensure your safety. Please let your AMN Healthcare representative know if you have any questions or concerns.

What are the current guidelines for pregnant healthcare professionals?

AMN Healthcare supports CDC guidelines for pregnant healthcare professionals. If you have any questions or concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine, please speak with your medical provider. See additional FAQs from the CDC.

What is the process if I receive vaccine on my own at a pharmacy? Will I be charged for vaccine assessments and/or immunization?

If you receive the COVID-19 vaccine at a pharmacy, please provide the documentation to your AMN Healthcare representative.

How will AMN Healthcare support me if I have a medical issue after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine?

We encourage you to contact the facility leader and follow the established facility policy and procedure. Remember that most vaccines have expected side effects to include sore arm, fatigue, low grade fever. These generally last only a day or two. (CDC Vaccine Side Effects)

If you develop severe symptoms or believe you are experiencing an allergic reaction, please seek medical attention at the facility designated location and inform your AMN Healthcare representative. For additional information, please refer to the CDC.

In addition to facility notification, please call the AMN COVID-19 Crisis Hotline at 800-887-1456 (option 2) to notify us of any serious medical issues that occur after vaccination. Our clinical managers are here to support you regarding vaccination-related side effects/reaction.

Is there a cost of obtaining the COVID-19 vaccine? Will AMN Healthcare cover the cost for employed healthcare professionals?

AMN Healthcare has learned that there is no direct cost for the vaccine. Any administrative costs will be covered by us on your behalf. If the facility you are working at has any questions about billing please direct them to their AMN Healthcare representative.

What if I don’t want to be given the COVID-19 vaccine? Will AMN Healthcare accept a declination for the COVID-19 vaccine?

As of December 2020, receiving the COVID-19 vaccine is highly encouraged but has not been mandated for healthcare professionals. AMN Healthcare supports and promotes evidenced based scientific clinical trials and practice built on a foundation of thorough data analysis. We will continue to provide you with updated information from reputable scientific agencies and encourage you to bring your questions or concerns forward. We are in this together.

Because the vaccine is highly encouraged but not required, AMN Healthcare will accept a declination at this time. As more information is provided in the coming weeks, we will provide an update with any changes at the federal, state and/or local community/facility level. In the meantime, please refer to the CDC and/or your state website for more information.

If you have specific questions about your facility’s policy or procedure for COVID-19 vaccination, please reach out to your facility leaders first. If you have additional needs, please contact your AMN Healthcare representative. We will update this question as more information becomes available.

Will AMN Healthcare support my choice to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine before or during my assignment?

Your health and safety are paramount to us, and we support your decision to obtain the vaccine. Your AMN Healthcare representative will work with you on the process and submission of documentation. We will continue to promote mask wearing, social distancing and handwashing, in conjunction with vaccine administration, to keep you and our communities safe. AMN Healthcare provides 24/7 clinical care services should you need additional support. Please contact your AMN Healthcare representative or our AMN Crisis Hotline at 1-800-887-1456 with your questions.
