Front-line health care worker shortage due to COVID-19 vaccine mandates, burnout - Fox News
Oct 19, 2021 1 min, 55 secs

Health care workers against vaccine mandates have stood their ground, despite the fact that millions of Americans have been safely vaccinated against coronavirus with a Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson shot at the hands of colleagues in their field.

"The number of resignations received leaves us no choice but to pause delivering babies at Lewis County General Hospital," CEO Gerald Cayer said at a September news conference.


In Michigan, approximately 400 workers walked off the job at Henry Ford Health System at the beginning of the month rather than take a required COVID-19 vaccine, according to the Detroit Free Press and an additional 1,900 workers received exemptions from the health system's vaccine requirement. .

The publication reported that the workers who left made up about 1% of the workforce of 33,000 people, and Reuters reported that dozens of employees had filed a lawsuit against Henry Ford Health System in September.

In July, a study by The COVID States Project said that 27% of health care workers were unvaccinated and NPR reported in September that other research showed the rate of vaccination has been lower among nurses and nursing home aides.

"The nation’s health care delivery systems are overwhelmed, and nurses are tired and frustrated as this persistent pandemic rages on with no end in sight.


"The current nursing crisis the state of Oregon is facing … has been decades in the making," Natasha Schwartz, a member of the Oregon Nurses Association Board of Directors, said during a news conference at the beginning of the month

"As we see a small number of nurses potentially leave the profession due to their decision to decline the vaccination, we are also concerned burnout will lead to an even larger number of nurses leaving the bedside – and in Oregon, we will not be able to educate a large enough number of nurses to replace them."

Officials from the Oregon Nurses Association said 60% of nurses at the state’s largest hospital, Oregon Health & Science University, indicated that they are considering leaving the profession entirely

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that, while a small number of health problems have been reported, COVID-19 vaccines are safe and highly effective
