Cone Health nurses protesters on mandated Covid19 vaccinations: “I’m a nurse. We’ve done the research we don’t feel safe about it”, Greensboro Moses Cone Hospital protest, Over half employees vaccinated
“two papers published May 19 in the journal of Hospital Pediatrics found pediatric hospitalizations for COVID were overcounted by at least 40%, carrying potential implications for nationwide figures used to justify vaccinating children.”...The Defender
“it is universally known that children virtually never die from COVID-19 and given that children have a very strong immune system, they are more likely than adults to have an over-reaction to the shot.”…Dr. Steven Roth
“There is not yet enough evidence on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in children to make recommendations for children to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Children and adolescents tend to have milder disease compared to adults. However, children should continue to have the recommended childhood vaccines.”…WHO
Over half of the Cone Health employees have been vaccinated.
Obviously if the vaccines were proven to be safe and effective, more of the employees would have been vaccinated.
From News 2 Greensboro, NC July 29, 2021.
“Healthcare workers protested in front of Moses Cone Hospital about the vaccination requirement.
Protesters started gathering Thursday morning around 10 a.m. along North Church Street in Greensboro.
Cone Health announced the requirement last week, which takes effect starting July 30. Employees will have until October 1 to become fully vaccinated with a deadline of October 8 to submit the proof of vaccination.
Cone Health said employees can apply for medical and religious exemptions.
In a statement released Thursday, Cone Health said, “We value our team members’ rights to voice their concerns. At the same time, we remain steadfast in our decision to require the COVID-19 vaccine because keeping our patients and communities safe at all times is at the core of our values and our commitments.”
Protesters had signs, music and even megaphones to have their voices heard.
“We don’t feel safe about that. We’ve done our own research as nurses. I’m a nurse. We’ve done the research we don’t feel safe about it ourselves. we love what we do we want to keep doing what we do, and we want to have a choice. if we get it great if we don’t want to get it that’s great too,” said one nurse, who didn’t want to be identified in fear she’d lose her job.
Another healthcare worker said she isn’t ready to get the shot just yet.
“I’m just not ready to get the shot yet. I might get it later, but I’m just not ready to get it by September and I don’t want to lose my job just because I’m not ready to do something yet,” she said.”
