With regard to the hospital employees leaving their place of employment rather than take the "vaccine" - this is their choice. They can leave CO and work in a state which doesn't have this mandate. I would like them to use a medical or religious exemption to keep working here, but with mandates coming from the government, they might not have that choice. Flu shots have been recommended in the past, but not forced. We have some very talented and dedicated workers at MMH and I hate to see the level of care reduced because of a mandate that really doesn't make any sense. Whatever happened to "my body, my choice"? Nobody talks about the fully vaccinated who are still ending up in the hospital. That is happening in Israel where there has been 90%+ compliance. It just doesn't make any sense to force this mandate on anyone.
