{THE FOLLOWING PULLED FROM ABOVE MENTIONED PDF}
On November 5, 2021, the Secretary issued an interim
final rule amending the existing conditions of participation
in Medicare and Medicaid to add a new requirement—that
facilities ensure that their covered staff are vaccinated
against COVID–19. 86 Fed. Reg. 61561, 61616–61627. The
rule requires providers to offer medical and religious ex-emptions, and does not cover staff who telework full-time.
Id., at 61571–61572. A facility’s failure to comply may lead
to monetary penalties, denial of payment for new admis-sions, and ultimately termination of participation in the
programs. Id., at 61574.

Unfortunately it states "requires providers to offer medical and religious ex-emptions" and specifically omits anything about actually granting them.   Grump
