View the full policy.

Lexington Medical Center’s Department of Public Safety will issue newly designed LMC ID badges to all non-LMC staff after they submit the required vaccination documentation or an acceptable exemption letter.

Effective February 11, 2022, any non-LMC staff visiting any Lexington Medical Center facility must have proof of at least their first vaccination or have an acceptable exemption letter.

Between February 11 – March 14, 2020, non-LMC staff must have a new LMC ID badge or proof of vaccination/exemption to enter any LMC facility.

Effective March 15, 2022, all non-LMC staff are required to have a new LMC ID badge to enter any LMC facility.

Steps to obtain a new non-LMC staff badge:

  1. LMC Directors and Managers will submit a list of authorized non-LMC staff, approving them to obtain the new LMC ID badge.
  2. Once non-LMC staff are fully vaccinated or have received an exemption from their employer, they must email the following information to vendorbadge@lexhealth.org:
    1. LEGIBLE copy of your proof of vaccination; or
    2. Signed letter from their employer’s President/CEO/designee attesting to their exemption status. The attestation letter must include the non-LMC staff member’s legal name as it appears on their valid identification. The attestation letter template is included in the policy.
  3. Non-LMC staff members will be notified within 1 to 2 business if there are errors or concerns regarding their submission. After two business days from successful e-mail submission, non-LMC staff members should go to Lexington Medical Center’s Department of Public Safety to have a photo taken and complete the process to obtain their new LMC ID badge.
