Vaccine mandate may have unintended consequences


We support the require­ment for vacci­na­tions; we do support that. That is science and evidence-based,” said Execu­tive Director Sally Watkins.

But Watkins has a warning about the unintended conse­quences of firing those who won’t get the shot.

We’re already in a staffing crisis. This mandate does include a required termi­na­tion for those health care workers who are not vacci­nated. So how is that going to now make the staffing crisis worse?” she said.
