Clock Is Ticking For Unvaccinated Local Hospital Staffs
You do realize December 6th is this Monday, don't you?
Unless something changes*, University Medical Center Employees have until December 5th to get their first vaccine and must be fully vaxxed by January 4th. Covenant says they must have their first does by the 6th and also fully vaxxed by January 4th. Either way, by the end of the day Monday and/or Tuesday we should see the full effect of the vaccine standoff.
If a person works at say, Walmart or a cotton gin or something, I think they have a leg to stand on when it comes to getting vaccinations. I don't go to those places so I don't care. As for healthcare workers, I feel it's their responsibility to do everything they can to protect the patients.
So will we see a mass exodus from the hospitals? My guess is no and I'm betting we'll see fewer than a dozen folks (most of who let their mouth overload their rear-ends) hit the road. I'm sure between the exemptions and those who were just waiting until the last minute that we'll see next to no turnover at our local hospitals.
It's a tough call between letting people live their lives and letting them possibly endanger other people. Were the corporations and medical facilities not so big and unwieldy, maybe these things could be looked at on a case-by-case basis. As I've mentioned before, I'm all about transparency; just post on every door how much of the staff is vaccinated and we'll see which doors get used.
*On Monday courts blocked this mandate on a Federal level but Texas was not part of that suit so those results are not applicable here.
