UNITED STATES — Healthcare workers are considered “essential” for vaccine distribution purposes. But state and federal officials are learning that many of said workers don’t want the experimental mRNA shots.
A survey by Surgo Ventures found that 15% of healthcare workers turned down mRNA shots after being offered said shots. Allied health workers (e.g. EMTs, nursing home workers, etc.) had a 22% refusal rate. Both groups cited lack of evidence and proof of efficacy for turning down the shots. A Morning Consult survey found that 23% of healthcare workers are refusing the mRNA shots.
Alarming rate of vaccine hesitancy
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine told the Columbus Dispatch in late December that 60% of nursing home workers already turned down the shots. He said the state will not force vaccinations, but wished there was “higher compliance.” California has a similar dilemma. An estimated 50% of Riverside County frontline workers refused the shots when first offered, according to the Los Angeles Times. The report found that half of employees at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Red Bluff rejected the shots. About 30% of Los Angeles County frontline workers rejected the shots.
Texas is also seeing mass vaccine hesitancy among healthcare workers. Dr. Joseph Varon told NPR that half of the nurses at Houston Memorial Medical Center are refusing to get the shots. Houston Methodist Hospital is trying to mitigate vaccine hesitance at its facility. It’s offering a $500 bonus to all of its 26,000 workers who take the mRNA shots.
Healthcare workers in Alabama are also very hesitant. Only half of the staffs at USA Health in Mobile and East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika said they would willingly take the shots. New York also has mass hesitancy. Mitchell Katz, CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals, said at a press conference that half of New York City frontline workers are refusing the shots.
Resist forced mRNA shots
Trinitas School of Nursing in New Jersey recently told all students that they must get mRNA shots or drop out of school. Most Americans simply do not know how to fight against vaccine mandates or fear it costs too much to hire a lawyer.
