MAGA morons will take a swing at ANYONE, even their own hospital when their freedumb to be morons is impinged.

I for one am glad that nurses who don't mind unnecessarily risking the lives of patients not longer work there.

But their Orange Cult Leader has commanded them to get the vaccine. It just doesn't add up.

The only thing that makes sense (hold on a second, let me check my calculations here)... is that they're morons.

I don't get religious exemption either. As far as I know all the holy books of the major world religions are silent on the topic of vaccination.

I don't care about that. I care about the fact that viruses don't give a sh*t about your made up superstitions.

"Have you been vaccinated?"
"No, but don't worry, I'm Lutheran."

See how infinitely stupid that sounds.

The number of people who claim a religious exemption doesn't line up at all with the number of Christian Scientists or whoever in annual surveys of religious life.

If one does not want vaccinations, one should not be a nurse. Any hospital that does NOT mandate its people to be vaccinated against every farking thing possible, well, do NOT go there.

Some religions cling very strongly to the "body is a temple" belief and will not allow any foreign injections like that.  However, the ones that specifically prohibit vaccines also prohibit blood transfusions and other medical procedures as well.  There may be some others, but the only 2 that I've heard hold to this are certain groups of Amish and Jehovah's Witnesses.  Everyone else just uses it as an excuse.

You have to have all sorts of vaccinations to work in a hospital. I wonder if the protesters here were as adamant about not getting their mandatory annual flu shots.

I'm OK with religion existing and for our laws to be broadly permissive of people's rights to practice their religion. What I'm not OK with is religion getting preference over human rights and public health policy.

They probably used the standard maga derp of "It's not fully approved".


Despite being tested on HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE which is more testing than most vaccines get before approval.

That's why the correct response is: "No, I'm under 50, have no high-risk co-morbidities, and I am not immuno-compromised in any way. So no thanks, I don't need a vaccine."

Wait wait, what about the hospital being over capacity? Ignoring social distancing protocols seems to be as bad as some 1% of chumps not vaccinating, especially since this seems to be policy, not just weirdos earning themselves the ban hammer

Why are you afraid of a vaccine with a 99.9% survival rate?

Once those suspensions play out, with those still refusing, I guess the Houston area is getting a lot of home care nurses all of a sudden.  Advice to anyone contracting one there, I suppose, would be to make sure the company actually requires vaccinations.

I DO expect that moron of a Governor to step in, or his equally evil Lt. Gov., or the lunatic State Legislature, or the deeply corrupt Attorney General, or Ted Cruz, any moment now, and do something terrible.

It is insane how many people think that they are just "healthy" enough not to need the vaccine. The vaccine doesn't just attack sick people. It makes healthy people sick, and many of them die.

I can't imagine someone being like, "I'm young and healthy--I don't need these condoms because there's no way I could get HIV." But I'm guessing these idiots do exactly that.

Catching/ Spreading Covid is bad for business, any sane company should exercise fiduciary duty and do whatever it takes to encourage employees to stay healthy and not Impact or shut down thier business due to a preventable disease outbreak.

So you're OK with spreading it around to people who ARE vulnerable as long as it doesn't hospitalize YOU? Cuz that's what you're saying.

Even mild cases can result in life long heart problems and other organ damage. Just because it doesn't kill you doesn't mean you walk away scott-free. In addition, the new delta variant (which developed because people spread Covid around as you defend doing) is taking out the young as well.

I spent the a night in the ER this week (alcohol withdrawal) and saw many examples of doctors, nurses, orderlies, and patients without masks eating and drinking around each other.  Then they gave me and my blood coughing self a big shot of phenobarbital and said their was a good chance they would have to intubate me.  Once admitted to a shared room the patients didn't wear masks.  Things have certainly laxed up a bit but it's a bad idea for anyone on the ER ward not to get vaccinated.  Theirs and the patients exposure is just too much given the day to day running of a crazy place like that it borders on criminal.

Nurses, teachers, and cops, are some of the jobs that we have TONS of positions to fill, and not enough excellent people to fill them. So we inevitably get some terrible ones in there, usually in the places where good ones are needed the most. Of course the best ones don't want to work with the terrible ones, so it's a never-ending cycle where the lower-income areas have the worst cops, teachers, and medical.
