The Colorado State Board of Health adopted a measure earlier this month that all employees in licensed healthcare settings need to be vaccinated by October 31.
Workers can seek a medical waiver or a religious exemption, but would be required to undergo testing twice a week. A medical waiver has to be approved and signed by a physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant or similar provider.
This comes after dozens of employees protested at a board meeting in late August about a potential vaccine mandate, though none existed at the time.
What do you think about the situation? How do you feel about those who have chosen to depart their jobs? What do you think of the religious waiver option?
