The requirement extends to anyone who provides any care, treatment, or service for McLaren or its patients.

Any individual seeking a religious or medical exemption will follow the prescribed McLaren policy that includes submission of a formal request to the McLaren System Vaccine Exemption Committee. Failure to comply with the vaccination requirement, or not having an approved exemption, will prevent employment with McLaren.
