178 Houston Hospital workers suspended without pay for not being vaccinated
The hospital, Houston Methodist said 178 of their employees violated mandatory vaccination policies and were suspended for two weeks. In addition, if they continue to ignore the demand for an injection from Covid, they will be fired.
According to Dr. Marc Boom, president and CEO of the Houston Methodist, and some of the disenfranchised, have already begun to vaccinate.
“I wish the number could be zero, but unfortunately, a small number of individuals have decided not to put their patients first,” Boom said.
In turn, healthcare workers are appealing to employer demands for freedom of choice and that the vaccine is still not FDA approved, effectively turning front-line health care workers into laboratory rats.
By Monday evening, dozens of Houston Methodist employees had gathered outside the hospital system’s location in Baytown, Texas, holding signs that read “Vaxx is Venom” and “Don’t Lose Sight of Our Rights,” reports The Seattle Times.
“If we don’t stop this now and do some kind of change, everybody’s just going to topple,” Jennifer Bridges, a nurse who led the Houston Methodist told local news media covering the protest. “It’s going to create a domino effect. Everybody across the nation is going to be forced to get things into their body that they don’t want and that’s not right.”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott recently passed legislation that makes vaccination requirements illegal, which could give anti-vaxxers freedom of choice. Florida and Arkansas have joined similar bills.
