“We’re asking them to bring their driver’s license or some government issued ID with their name on it,” Dr. Scott Brady, with AdventHealth, said. “Then something that indicates that they are a healthcare employee with patient contact, such as their badge or such as a license.”

So far, Orlando Health said 75% of its nurses took the vaccine as well as 90% of its doctors.
