Cayer said 30 of the hospital workers received the COVID-19 vaccination, but 30 others have resigned. At least six of them were in maternity. Another seven employees have not yet decided whether to take the photo, he said.

‘We are not alone. There are thousands of vacancies open north of the Thruway and now we have a challenge to work through, you know, with the vaccination mandate,” he added.

Biden’s approach includes requiring all federal employees and federal contractors to be vaccinated, requiring vaccinations for more than 17 million health care workers in Medicare and Medicaid participating facilities, and requiring all companies with 100 or more employees to tell them to get vaccinated or undergo weekly COVID testing.

In Texas, Houston Methodist hospital staff walked out of shifts in June to protest the health system’s COVID-19 vaccine demand.

“I’m not on either side, I’m not an anti-vaxxer, I got my vaccine, but I believe it has to be someone’s choice,” she told Houston’s FOX 26 at the time.
