Understood, we have done some work in hospitals and I am aware that there are certain requirements. I recall one job we did where our guys had to either get the flu shot or wear a mask while inside the hospital kitchen area. All my guys who were on that job get the flu shot anyway, so it wasn't an issue.My wife had been a nurse practitioner for over thirty years. She was required by all of her employers to have certain vaccinations. That is not unusual at all in the health care industry.
For whatever reason, there are a lot of medical staff who are adamantly opposed to getting the vaccine, I personally know several nurses and nurse practitioners who feel that way. One common theme I've heard from many of them is that they have diligently served through this for the last year and a half, and now they are being threatened with firing if they don't take a shot. I kinda see their point, especially now that the threat might not be nearly as great as it was some months ago.
My only point is that there will likely be consequences for the mandates, and those consequences might be worse than not mandating the vaccine. We already have a severe shortage of workers and this certainly won't help.
all this would make more sense if COVID numbers were still really bad, but they are way down.
