COVID-19 live updates: 'Steady increase' in vaccines in past month, White House says
A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now infected more than 197 million people worldwide and killed over 4.2 million of them.
Marxists Fair enough death of children of unvaccinated and condition of employment may make them jump off the delusional rope 'swing' 😡 wrong… Good. This is the only way to get this country to herd immunity. EVERY employer should require vaccinations. Let’s see if financial ruin trumps slavish devotion to nonsense (pun intended). *if people lose their job because they won’t get vaccinated, they should not get unemployment.
And they should. BHumbeeck Amerika ....het land van de vrijheid 🤨 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 Good. GOOD! Those people were obviously in the wrong line of work!
New Jersey hospital network fires 6 supervisors for not getting vaccinated against COVID-19A New Jersey hospital network has fired a half-dozen high-ranking employees who refused to comply with a new policy requiring them to get vaccinated against COVID-19. UAE experimental, which requires people be given the right to refuse them. Under the Nuremberg Code, the foundation of ethical medicine, no one may be coerced to participate in a medical experiment. Consent of the individual is “absolutely essential.” Interesting Would you want to be attended in a hospital by someone not vaccinated? Federal judge has already ruled hospitals in particular can mandate staff vaccinations. EEOC also requires employers provide a safe working environment
Good Good! A health care worker being anti-vax is like a McDonald's worker being against wearing a uniform. If you refuse to wear a hard hat at a construction job, you will be fired. Nothing new or unusual in this case. Chân thành là đủ These healthcare workers have what's called common sense. A lot of people lack that & believe & rush to things based on what the TV told them. Anyone with a brain would not want to be a guinea pig. They can shove vaccine up theirs. I will never submit....
👍👍👍 They work in a hospital. They should know better. Good for them, if the antivaxers want to die let them do it alone without taking poor children and the immunocompromised down with them. Every unvaccinated is another ticking time bomb for the next mutation MandatoryVaccination
Trump Says Cheney Challengers Will Vie For His Endorsement At New Jersey Golf ClubCheney shot back that the contest will be between “somebody who is loyal to our Constitution and somebody who’s claimed his loyalty to Donald Trump.” How ironic, the dude to the right of her can be seen objecting to the 2016 election in this video:
Now they are free to see Clapton’s farewell tour, “Super spreader”. 👏👏👏👏👏👏 A hospital protecting its own patients, staff and (now) former employees is not news. 🥳🥳🥳 Thank you And so they should it should be mandatory for all healthcare workers to have the vaccine That is just wrong. What happened to our freedom to choose?
Good👍🏻 Vaccines discrimination 🥺
Trump Says Cheney Challengers Will Vie For His Endorsement At New Jersey Golf ClubFormer President Donald Trump said some of the Republicans challenging anti-Trump Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) will gather at his New Jersey, golf club next week to try to secure his endorsement I wonder how much he will charge them to stay there? They All are going to show up they have no shame they don’t believe in democracy or our constitution he’s The king
Got to keep things safe😶🌫️!!! Vaccines save lives. This is just the start of the discrimination. 👏👏👏 good Bidens America Is this the first case of being fired for being too based? That’s weird. I thought I read somewhere that 30 percent of hospital staff in New York City were still unvaccinated. Wonder if there next.
How did they know? HIPPA
Trump Says Cheney Challengers Will Vie For His Endorsement At New Jersey Golf ClubFormer President Donald Trump said some of the Republicans challenging anti-Trump Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) will gather at his New Jersey, golf club next week to try to secure his endorsement Isn’t it illegal to have people buy an endorsement? That ought to be a fun event full of bowing, scraping, groveling and ass kissing. Rep.Liz Cheney and Sen.Lisa Murkowski and Rep.Anthony Gonzalez I hope they will be re-elected.
Play MAGA games win MAGA prizes Good! Sooo stupid!! Putting not just their family in danger, but their friends and strangers too, cause they probably did not mask up in public either. I wish there were two different hospital systems so those wishing to exercise their “rights and freedoms” could be treated by their fellow unvaccinated peers.
Good I wish I could say the same for my work but at that point the restaurant wouldn’t be able to function if that happened lol which is sad ^5 Excellent.
Local Health Authorities Seek to Curb Delta Variant Without New RulesLocal health authorities around the U.S. are seeking to blunt the Delta variant of Covid-19 by boosting vaccination rates while stopping short of restrictions To contemplate ‘choice’ in rampant and raging deadly coronavirus pandemic is definition of stupidity…and dangerous because MTG knows MAGA and QAnon believe her. Variants of covid19 have one single mission: search for new hosts to impregnate and destroy. GetVaccinated Local health authorities are seeking blunts? this is terrible news
Good! Everybody here acting like just because you get vaccinated you cant catch covid or spread it As they should. 👍👍👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 lumar33 Good! Let them infect each other. 👍👍👍👍 Good! More of this please. They were appropriate in doing so. We need to keep everybody safe.
New cybersecurity order issued for US pipeline operatorsThe Department of Homeland Security has announced new requirements for U.S. pipeline operators to bolster cybersecurity following a May ransomware attack that disrupted gas delivery across the East Coast
I was just in the hospital yesterday due to a sinus infection. The doctor told me you can still get Covid and die from it after you are vaccinated. No one should fire anyone over a vaccine Vaccine records are required for alot of jobs and have been around for a long time. They should just add the covid vaccine requirement for records along with the usual bunch.
These six employees don’t have to get vaccinated if they don’t want to. As a result, hospitals don’t have to keep unvaccinated personnel on the payroll either. The employees have two choices, get vaccinated or find another job that will take them in. Good luck with that! This is hysterical because when their vaccinated employees get Covid maybe they will have to shut down. stupidity
Americans has turned into the land of nuts they should get vaccinated unless they allergic to vaccinations a hospital is an Institute of medicine and science not what Donald Trump Hannity and Tucker Carlson say.. the fact we are having this conversation shows America is nuts.. But....try to understand why would someone in that field in the upper level management would refuse to be vaccinated? 🧐 What if it was a doctor? They didn't mention what kind of worker It's just something to think about. 🧐🧐
Good. JesusNarrowWay All hospitals require TB testing and Hepatitis series. Otherwise their insurance rates would sky rocket.
Excellent. Good. Good Attention tinkreynolds. Just talking about this. GOOD. If you are a danger to everyone you can GTFO Good get the vaccine today or lose your job. install a government camera in your living-room tomorrow, or lose your freedom Good. Why is this even news? So antivaxxers can outcry their stupidity again, boosting web-traffic?
The rot runs deep. Good. Companies don't want to be held responsible if an unvaccinated employee brings covid to their business. I have no problem with that I have no problem with this. Good, ignorance and stupidity deserves nothing less Good. It's awesome watching conservatives trip over the unintended consequences of their own WINNING arguments at SCOTUS saying that citizens have rights on their own property and that businesses are citizens. Now they don't like it. Lol! You don't have a right to a job.
Good for them, still trying to save lives. Government can’t force so the market has to. This is the only way we’re going to get ahead of this. About time! Good. Wish we did that in Florida. Good! Protect their patients! Okay. This is news? How many didn’t lose their jobs because they did get vaccinated? That’s the story.
Excellent. Now let's do this across the board at the federal level for the entire country. I'm over this BS. I want to be done with this pandemic. There's one reason, and one reason only, that we're in the position we are in. Mandate vaccinations now. Good. It’s way past time we stop catering to the unvaccinated. And for the record, yes your boss can require you to be vaccinated.
