This is out of how many. Why aren't we being told how many people got the vwccine following a mandate.

14,000 employees.  So 6%.   Oh no - how will they manage without their stupidest and most selfish employees and only 94% of its regular staff?

"Nursing is my dream."

Um, sure. The act of working as a nurse may be, but taking care of others sure isn't.

What a bunch of ijits.

SpaceyCat: About time they farking have some consequences for their stupidity.


Yes, it's about time that the patients have a reduced ability to access medical services, as indicated by the closures/consolidations mentioned in TFA.

Allowing them to return to work if they get vaccinated is being too lenient.  They should be given a drop-dead date.  Get vaccinated by then or you are fired permanently.  It's not just the lack of the vaccine that is the problem.  It's the selfish mentality that "mah freedumbs" is more important than the public health during a pandemic.  I don't want to work with these kinds of people.

Why do they need to have a 100% vaccination rate?

What science indicates that 94% isn't good enough?

Because it's a farking hospital with sick people who will have weakened immune systems.  A bunch of plague rats running around is a threat to those people.

We tried the carrot, now for the stick. The next logical step is a Mosin-Nagant and tranq darts loaded with vaccine.

These assholes were given the choice they wanted...a shot or their job. Go flip burgers, biatches; oh, right, soon even Chik-Fil-A won't hire you without vaccinations.

But a trio of staff from the women's services department said they don't think it should be up to their employer to determine how serious they are about their religious beliefs.

This is surprisingly a really good point: "no" for everyone then, with a "f*ck you for even trying" if they have to tell you no twice.

Yeah, I'm good with these idiots not working in healthcare. Ideally, ever again.

Fire them.

Erica McClure said she is now looking for somewhere else to work and anticipates moving out of the area in order to find a hospital that will grant her a religious exemption. She has worked at Legacy for eight years.

What's galling is they're trying to vie for sympathy. Is any hospital hires these assmunches, it's a pretty good litmus test that you shouldn't go there.

I only like reduced access to medical services when it is due to people filling up the ICU because of COVID. Because then more people die, which is good.

This holding medical professionals to account is an awful way to lose access. These people are obviously idiots and are probably responsible for a majority of deaths by malpractice. Now fewer people will die, which is bad.

Why do we even have vaccines at all?

If no one had vaccines then the viruses would be so much more effective. This would make baby Jesus happy to have so many more souls to come visit.

A 94% rate is too much. We should aim lower. We definitely should not go higher because then there would be even fewer virus vectors, and that is bad.
 
2021-10-02 9:03:51 PM  
In every one of these cases, the media needs to be asking them about all the other mandated vaccines and why they rolled over and received those.
 
2021-10-02 9:04:28 PM  
My employer said point-blank in an all company meeting that they expect some people to quit over the vaccine requirement, and that they are quote: "completely fine with losing some staff over the requirement".

After having two folks on my team nearly die from covid since early 2020, I'm okay with this.

Does she have a religious objection to all the other vaccines that medical workers are required to have?
 
2021-10-02 9:06:12 PM  
I used to work for Legacy, back in the day.  It doesn't surprise me in the least that management would drop the hammer to get their way.  In this case, it's for a good reason.  Past reasons, not so much.

My company is also requiring vaccines to return to the office.  There is a medical exemption, which I have no problem with, but there is also a religious exemption, which I have a big problem with.  If your god doesn't want you to get vaccinated, then your god is an asshole.

Gavin Michael called it "disheartening" to watch his brother go to school and work hard to get his position at the hospital, only to lose his job less than a year after he started.

I agree. It's disheartening to see your idiot brother throw away his position on something really stupid after he worked so hard to get it. You might want to have a talk with him.

First, you wouldn't even have 94% without the mandate.  Second, in a hospital or care facility you could come into contact with people with auto-immune disorders or very old people or people with serious co-morbidities.

So whereas 80% vaccination rate might be acceptable in the general public - it certainly would not be acceptable in any position in regular contact with the public and certainly not in health care job.

...

This, right here, is what's wrong with this country.

No, not the forum discourse. Being able to speak your mind without government retaliation (provided your not advocating violence or systemic violation of rights) is a cornerstone of what this country pretends to stand for.

I'm talking about the fact we've allowed a vocal minority to turn the act off vaccination against a deadly disease into a topic for the farking POLITICS TAB.

I'm sorry, but the general well-being of the populace should not be political. For fark's sake, anyone who defends this shiat is at best arguing in bad faith for the sake of "stigginit."

It's not that they are against vaccines even, they are vaccinated; they are just but hurt republicans who are pissed off that America is moving on with out them, basically running them over with votes.

The GOP out of touch with any rational conservatives now, only rabid FOX news hosts and Russians believe the current Republican BS.

The real American question is; why haven't the Republicans who obstructed justice in the Russia-gate investigation went to jail yet?

I have to wonder what religion these bullsh*t artists belong to that doesn't allow vaccinations. I'm waiting for some "journalist" to ask and then follow up with, "So it's safe to assume that no members of your religion are vaccinated?"

If they are genuine anti-vaxxers, their kids have no immunizations.  If they are recent political anti-vaxxers, they may be coming around to that anyway.

She and people like her give Christians a bad name.  She refuses to accept that anyone can be used as a tool of Satan, especially when a person becomes overwhelmingly convinced of their righteousness.  See every priest, pastor, and youth counselor that hurts children as proof of this.

Stop just claiming the name, try acting as Christ would.  The Messiah would be acting in ways to show the hypocrisy of the leaders and condemning it, not joining it.

The bit in the article where it says there are 14,000 employees? Or the bit where the article mentions 180 of the 794 have had first dose, and can come back to work after they're fully vaccinated?
