How do I notify AMN of a potential exposure?

Depending on the state/client you are working for determines what type of exemption will be accepted. Please work with your credentialing analyst or recruiter to determine if an exemption can be requested.
The declination form and the supporting document to request religious exemption can be found on AMN passport app, via your brand web portal, and/or your credentialing analyst can provide you a copy.
*Requests for exemption for medical or religious reasons do require additional documentation so that the accommodation request can be reviewed.
- Medical: Letter on Provider letterhead with signature (MD/DO/NP/PA) and/or stamp indicating the medical reason you are not able to receive the vaccine.
- Religious: Complete the “Request for Religious Accommodation/Exemption to COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement.” form. All fields need to be completed.

I have lost my COVID-19 Vaccine Card, what do I do?
Many organizations that provided vaccines required you to be registered within their system in order to be vaccinated. Reach out to them to see if they can provide you with an electronic copy of your vaccine record which can serve as proof of vaccination.
Another option is using the state tracking system for vaccines. These systems monitor vaccines across the state, including COVID-19.
Every state has a tracking system for COVID-19 vaccines. Go to the appropriate state system to find record of your vaccination.
As the process for vaccination moves forward, we expect that QR codes will eventually be available to validate your vaccination.
Consider downloading one of the Vaccine Passports to hold your documentation.
I was just diagnosed with COVID-19. Is Monoclonal Antibody Treatment an option for me?
Monoclonal antibody treatment is a promising therapeutic for people diagnosed with mild to moderate COVID-19. The FDA has issued Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for this treatment for patients who meet certain high-risk criteria.
If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, please reach out to your provider to see if you are a candidate for this promising treatment designed to reduce symptoms, and/or symptom progression. Find a location near your current assignment location.
Monoclonal Antibody treatment is at no charge to the patient. Centers are opening across the country but are in the infancy stage. Your assignment facility may even be one of the locations offering this treatment. FEMA is also involved in staffing Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Centers in some of the high need areas of the country.

Please send in documentation of your booster as soon as you receive it to help ensure hawse have up-to- date vaccination status.

Fortunately, the availability of the free COVID vaccine has increased greatly. Vaccines are available at large clinics, physician offices, urgent care centers, and local pharmacies. Check with these resources or local state/county websites.
Will my assignment be cancelled if I am not vaccinated?
This varies based on the assignment and the facility requirements. Your recruiter will work with you to find another assignment if your existing assignment has to be cancelled.
