Only a fraction of health care workers are risking their jobs over vaccinations

  • With deadlines for health care workers to get coronavirus vaccinations either in the past or quickly approaching, it is clear that only a fraction of those workers across the nation are choosing to risk their jobs by failing to comply.
  • UCHealth System in Colorado fired 119 workers this week; Kaiser Permanente, based in California, has suspended more than 2,200 employees; and 400 workers have resigned from the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit rather than get inoculated.
  • President Biden announced a mandate on Sept. 9 that requires workers at nearly every hospital and health system in the country to get vaccinated or receive weekly coronavirus tests.
