In order to keep our small and mighty team healthy through the season we are requiring that everyone participating in our internship program be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. At this time, that means they will have received the primary vaccination and the bivalent booster containing Omicron. Further details on this can be found on the CDC website. *If you need an exception to this requirement, please speak with the hiring manager.
