After much thought and deliberation, Essence Laser & Wellness will implement a new policy as of October 1st, 2021, requiring proof of full Covid vaccination prior to entry into our clinic. This decision did not come easily but is necessary considering the rising Covid cases and the highly contagious Delta variant, for the safety of our patients, staff, and community.
The October 1st deadline provides plenty of time to become fully vaccinated, and I sincerely hope that will happen. My intent is not exclusion, but rather inclusion of all in a safe and healthy environment. Please click on this link to find a vaccination site near you: https://www.vaccines.gov/search/
In the meantime, we will make special arrangements for the unvaccinated to keep the clinic, the staff, and vaccinated patients safe. If you are exempt from receiving the vaccine due to a medical condition, special arrangements will be made for you with a statement from your medical doctor.
I appreciate your understanding. We will get through this together.
