Nurses at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital protest Covid19 mandated vaccinations, “Coercion is not consent”, “God calls the shots, not U”, “My body, my choice.”
“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

“Vaccine mandate protesters gather outside Wake Forest Baptist Health
On Saturday, a crowd of approximately 50 protesters gathered outside Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston-Salem to express their opposition to a recently-announced mandate that requires employees receive the COVID-19 vaccine or face termination.
The demonstration lasted roughly four hours. People remained on one street corner, and hospital operations were not disrupted.
Hope Anglesey has worked for seven months at Wake Forest Baptist as a CNA.
“I use to say I was proud to be an employee of Wake Forest Baptist. I can’t say that anymore,” Anglesey said. “I’m very disappointed that they’ve followed along with others on the mandate.”
Protests have popped up at other Triad hospitals, including Cone Health in Greensboro, after six major North Carolina hospital groups announced Thursday that all employees must get the COVID-19 vaccine. The hospital system includes the three hospital systems in the Triad – Cone Health, Novant Health and Wake Forest Baptist Health.
Anglesey said she isn’t against all vaccines but is hesitant to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
“I am worried there has not been enough research done on this vaccine, Anglesey said. “The typical time it’s tested and researched and administered to humans is much longer than what the COVID vaccine has been done.”
Concerns around the vaccine not being fully FDA approved and the belief their rights are being taken away reflected on the signs protesters held. ”
