More than 50 medical groups are calling for health care employers to mandate Covid-19 vaccines for workers, citing rising cases and highly contagious variants.

As the number of Covid-19 cases surges in the United States, more than 50 health care groups -- including the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Public Health Association -- issued a joint statement calling for all health care and long-term care employers to mandate employees be vaccinated against Covid-19.

"Our health care organizations and societies advocate that all health care and long-term care employers require their workers to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This is the logical fulfillment of the ethical commitment of all health care workers to put patients as well as residents of long-term care facilities first and take all steps necessary to ensure their health and well-being," they wrote in the joint statement issued Monday.

Question, what about the people who could have an allergic reaction to the vaccine? Do you feel the same way for them? Remember, in the beginning CDC said if your allergic to certain foods you should not get the vaccine. No, no, no!!!! Hey unvaccinated folks, if you want to vote for your guy in next presidential election, go and get vaccinated. Only a living person can vote in America!

Vaccination or rigorous testing. At employee expense of course for the testing. Federal medical workers (think VA clinics/hospitals) are unionized and the unions are against mandatory vaccines. How about the 1000s pouring over the southern border that are not vaccinated and be disbursed all over the country 🤔BTW hows the art selling

Mandatory vaccination for ALL not unconstitutional— Lets Do That NOW Absolutely ridiculous that any healthcare worker isn’t vaccinated (other than allergy related). Strange considering the are huge numbers of medical groups REFUSING the experimental shot. Rather they are recommending the therapeutics that WORK and recovery is within 2-3 days. No need for the shot. Meds work.

Not going to happen. They have tried terminating staff for refusing the experimental shot and now there is a crisis due to lack of staff for hospitals. Hospitals are going to be destroyed (patients) due to the Regimes attempts to destroy the USA. All about the 💰💰💰💰

Top Golfers Out Of Olympics After Positive COVID-19 TestsThe two were among the best-known athletes in the entire Summer Games. Who? So cavalier about getting the vaccine. Yep, should have done it sooner.

A lot of places are gonna loose employees and then cry when they have no help. Absolutely! If we as patients have a mandate to enter a hospital with a mask, the very least is the have the medical staff vaccinated!! No brainer! The only reason they want it to be mandatory is so the people getting fired for not getting vaccinated will have nowhere else to go!

Just do it. Don’t listen to conservatives. It’s time to mandate vaccinations. It should be mandatory, period Mình tìm bạn nữ có cùng sở thích mqh k ràng buộc, liên hệ với mình nếu bạn k ngại nhé, mình rất thân thiện, lịch sự, đàng hoàng và vui vẻ nên bạn đừng lo lắng khi chủ động nhắn tin cho người khác giới nhé

Makes too much sense, so you will have nay sayers. It’s about time insurance companies got involved. They’ve been demanding drug testing of employees by employers for decades. So the experts aren’t concerned enough to have their workers vaccinated yet everyone that chooses not to is a Trump supporter?

How Olympic COVID-19 Countermeasures May Be Falling ShortTokyo 2020 organizers have put in place a strict testing and quarantine bubble system. But no system is perfect

Companies can’t mandate it because they would be held accountable if something goes wrong. The vaccine is still on an emergency trial.

No sir! You got it wrong demand the idiots out there to get vaccinated or else face “ no healthcare help” especially if they relying on our tax dollars to help pay their insurance! Fuck it they reckless well no tax funded medical, medical insurance period! Legally I think you need full vaccine approval first. EUA is a stumbling block.

Patients will suffer when medical workers walk out If there was a cure I would. But no way would it be fair if it’s only working like a cold medicine. No point if we aren’t immune from it = cured No!!!!!! The vaccines do not prevent you from spreading or getting Covid so what’s the point ! It’s the vaccinated that are spreading Covid

YONCUSH WIFE OR MISTRESS ISNT A GAME IF U CHEAT ITS DEATH AND HELL Health care system always requires Hep B shots, MMR, PPD tests. What’s the difference with Covid?

Spaniards put faith in COVID-19 vaccines even as cases surgeSpain has an important asset as it tries to stamp out a wave of infections that is steadily filling hospitals with younger COVID-19 patients. thanks If everyone wore a mask it would be like locking down the virus. Just a reminder that if you are a minor and your parents won’t consent, you can still get vaccinated! Look up your state laws on minor consent, or have an older friend or family member take you. Protect yourself if your parents won’t✨

🤷🏻‍♂️ Radhe Radhe 🙏 Plz talk more about Freeman Mbowe How is this even up for debate? I can't understand why anyone wouldn't get vaccinated if they can. Time to deny medical insurance coverage to the unvaccinated. The rest of us shouldn't be paying premiums for their ignorance. Hit them where it will hurt the most: their wallets.

More medical provider groups push healthcare employers to require Covid -19 vaccination. Vaccines should be mandatory if you work in health care. “Freedom” isn’t free and not getting vaccinated if you aren’t immunocompromised is selfish. CovidIsNotOver Duh.

Las variantes del COVID-19 y las normas complican el turismo en EuropaEl caos y la confusión sobre las normas para viajar y las medidas para contener rebrotes del coronavirus contribuyen a otro verano cruel para el maltrecho sector turístico europeo this is terrible news

It should be mandatory.. In the late 1960’s when we were winning the race for technology vs Russia, our enemies began the process of the destruction of America. Drugs, liberalism, and other attacks on the foundation of America. 디오_1st_solo_ROSE I would think folks in healthcare respect science. Stumped there is even a slight hesitancy. That shocks me.

Only logical. Tough times Covid_19 디오_1st_solo_ROSE When people finally realize things have gone too far and they decide they don't like how things have become it will be too late to go back. Being American won't be a matter of pride in the near future. Even if you're vaccinated, wear a mask.

Symptomatic breakthrough COVID-19 infections rare, CDC data estimatesNationwide, approximately 153,000 symptomatic breakthrough cases are estimated to have occurred as of last week, representing approximately 0.098% of those fully vaccinated, according to unpublished internal CDC document obtained by ABC News. This is just awful and irresponsible. We have no idea how many vaccinated cases have occurred. The CDC is not having us report them. Notice please, they say “estimated” but give no methodology for their estimation. This is just not true. That’s 0.098% is an amazingly low percentage. Not even Point 1 %!

How 3 Olympic, Paralympic athletes adapted their training to the COVID-19 pandemicUp until last year, the Olympic games had never been postponed for any other reason than a world war.
