NY mandates healthcare workers get the vaccine

No choice of mask wearing or testing.

How come healthcare workers have the option to get the flu shot or wear a mask?

This is ridiculous and I’ve seen a couple friends post that they are refusing and willing to give up everything they worked for. They are left with no choice. No option to wear a mask. No prion for testing.

What about the woman who is going thru fertility treatments and worries about how this will effect her?

What about the workers who have natural immunity?

What about those who are currently pregnant? Breastfeeding?

What about those who have a history of reactions to vaccines and are worried?

So many who have valid reasons for wanting to wait a little longer.

Re: NY mandates healthcare workers get the vaccine

This was Cuomo's last control to do this and it is disgusting and NY is going to have staff shortages. People will quit, they will be traveling nurses where they can make a ton more money and not have to vaccinate.

I feel bad for these people as they were hailed as hero's and had no vaccine and didn't get sick but now they are made to take a vaccine many do not want to nor can. So much for being hailed as a hero and helping THEM out.

There is room for limited religious and medical exceptions in the new mandate

That's great but what about the ones who just don't want it? They will lose many excellent nurses and doctors.

An option of testing should be on the table. Testing should also be for vaccinated also since they can also be sick. It should not be vaccinated or nothing. I actually sent this to my nurse friend who does not plan to get vaccinated but haven't heard back to see what her plans will be.

There are allowances for medical exemptions. A person who is opposed to vaccination due to religious beliefs would presumably not be employed in healthcare to begin with because healthcare workers are required to be fully vaccinated as a condition of employment.

And there are many many more healthcare workers and patients who do not want to be in close proximity to those who are not vaccinated. What about them? Don't they have a right to a safe work environment? Don't patients have a right to healthcare providers who are much less likely to spread the virus to them? There are many more sides to this than just "many will quit" (or the similar, "many will not frequent a business that requires a vaccine") that you continue to insist is the only valid point of view. NY is not the only State to institute this mandate and I doubt it will be the last. More and more of the US population is getting vaccinated daily. Yes, the pace slowed considerably, but is rising quickly in states that are seeing rising rates of COVID. Eventually, those who refuse for no valid reason, will be left behind - unable to attend many events, restaurants and schools and yes, even their jobs.

And that's a shame as you will be losing some good people.

Re: NY mandates healthcare workers get the vaccine

They already have plans to combine an annual covid shot with a flu shot so don’t worry. You will have to get both at some point.

How do they do that if they are two completely different types of “vaccines”

One is mrna and the other is a traditional vaccine.

But these same people are ok with being in close proximity to a healthcare worker who did not get the flu vaccine during a bad flu season?

Are you actually insinuating that flu and COVID are of equal health threat? OH. MY. GOD. Chat Icon

Keep rolling your eyes. When you sit and think about it, inlets say a hospital. Covid and flu are just as much a threat to a person with a weak immune system. Are we going to argue about that! They are both a threat.

COVID is a greater threat to those who are immunocompromised. Weird how in 2021 people still need to be told this.

I'm not going down this rabbit hole, LittleDiva. I also have zero issue with mandating the vaccine for Healthcare workers. If some doctor will be breathing two inches from my face and cutting me open for surgery then hell yea, I want them vaccinated.

Well we will have to agree to disagree. When my grandma was in the hospital a couple years ago she would have died if she caught the flu. Different experiences give you different outlooks on things.

Having family members who have debilitating autoimmune disorders and where contracting COVID could be deadly for them in most circumstances I agree, having experience sure does give you a different perspective.

I never said or even insinuated that. I'm sure most people who are seeing a healthcare provider would not be comfortable with that either

NY mandates healthcare workers get the vaccine

I think it’s a reasonable request.

Anecdotal: I know an RN who thought Covid was fake. All but laughed in face of masks, distancing, laying low. Still was reporting to work obviously. Started the whole patting themselves on the back thing for being on the front lines... but.. didn’t want to walk the talk. Jokes about being out and about. Refuses vaccine... and.. came down with Covid.

A medical “professional” like that is a risk to patients, especially young ones. You can’t be in the medical field and not put your patients first. They take an oath.

If you can’t do it, step aside and let someone else step up who has patients interest in mind.

That would be reasonable if vaccinated people didn't get and transmit COVID. That is not the case at all. IMO vaccinated and unvaccinated people need to be taking the same exact precautions when it comes to community spread.

Same logic goes for the flu shot. People with the flu shot can and still come down with the flu. Its happened to my family more than once which is why I no longer take it. It's also probably why the flu shot has never been mandated.

I think it’s a reasonable request.

Anecdotal: I know an RN who thought Covid was fake. All but laughed in face of masks, distancing, laying low. Still was reporting to work obviously. Started the whole patting themselves on the back thing for being on the front lines... but.. didn’t want to walk the talk. Jokes about being out and about. Refuses vaccine... and.. came down with Covid.

A medical “professional” like that is a risk to patients, especially young ones. You can’t be in the medical field and not put your patients first. They take an oath.

If you can’t do it, step aside and let someone else step up who has patients interest in mind.



That would be reasonable if vaccinated people didn't get and transmit COVID. That is not the case at all. IMO vaccinated and unvaccinated people need to be taking the same exact precautions when it comes to community spread.

Same logic goes for the flu shot. People with the flu shot can and still come down with the flu. Its happened to my family more than once which is why I no longer take it. It's also probably why the flu shot has never been mandated.



All vaccinated people I know are back to wearing masks indoors. I’m not sure what you’re trying to get at here.

Vaccinated people can still go maskless in many locations if they choose to do so. Some larger chains are mandating customers wear masks but I went to the supermarket today and it was about 50/50.

I get that, but many vaccinated people have resumed masks. Many I know never stopped in public Indoor settings.
