700 Workers Fired At The Mayo Clinic – Refused to take the Covid Vaccine

How I personally feel about taking the COVID-19 vaccine, or others not taking it is relative. I am not going to persuade anyone for it or against it. I believe we are all adults and we should make up our own minds and do what we believe is right for ourselves. There are many people that cannot take this vaccine due to its makeup and the mRNA components within it. Having said that, I do believe we must use wisdom and to a certain extent be group-minded and think of others not only ourselves, such as wearing masks, not touching our faces, hand washing, air ventilation, and social distancing. It is also coming out of recent reports that many of the measures we take are futile as the new variant, Omicron, has gripped our nation. We have all faced the fact that the CDC is at best wishy-washy on its handling of this pandemic and it does not appear the CDC will remain a credible source for knowledge at all.

“More than 700 Mayo Clinic employees throughout the U.S. are out of a job after failing to get vaccinated against the coronavirus as a condition of employment, the nonprofit health organization said Wednesday.

All Mayo Clinic employees were instructed to receive at least one dose of a vaccine by Monday, and not be overdue for a second dose. Those who did not comply were released from employment Tuesday. These individuals made up approximately 1% of the Mayo Clinic’s total staff, a representative told HuffPost.”

It is wrong to penalize employees this way. First of all, employers are calling back employees with mild symptoms five days after the onset of sickness. Second of all, the spread of COVID-19 is more likely with a sick individual returning to work than one that is not fully vaccinated. Third of all, no matter how hard the CDC tries to spin this that it is no big deal, this pandemic is a big deal and it is killing people daily.

“Despite criticism from a number of public health experts, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention affirmed its new guidelines suggesting those with COVID-19 can exit isolation in five days without testing.”

Recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO):

“COVID-19 most commonly spreads between people who are in close contact through respiratory droplets or small particles produced when an infected person coughs, talks, or breathes. Growing evidence shows that droplets can remain suspended in the air and travel distances beyond six feet, according to the CDC. Indoor environments with poor ventilation increase the risk of transmission.

To prevent infection and to slow transmission of COVID-19, do the following:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, or clean them with alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when in public settings or around others.
  • Maintain at least six feet distance between you and people coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell.
  • Refrain from smoking and other activities that weaken the lungs.
  • Practice physical distancing by avoiding unnecessary travel and staying away from large groups of people.

Should this be the example of how Mayo Clinic chooses to handle people who in their opinion have not received their vaccines or are partially vaccinated, this will set a new precedent we can expect to be modeled and followed across the nation. This is unnecessary and takes the right to choose away from the individual, which is wrong. In addition to being a right constitutionally, freedom of association enables workers and employers to join together to protect better not only their own economic interests but also their civil freedoms such as the right to life, to security, to integrity, and to personal and collective freedom of making their own choices. Mayo Clinic has abused these rights. Even WHO does not suggest these methods of insanity.

  1. The litigation in the years to come will be a lawyers wet dream.
    In the meantime the wheels fall off as is evidenced in the last few weeks with staff shortages due to covid and the elephant in the room remains.

    1. It is truly a bad time for Americans when Europeans are feeling sorry for us due to our shoddy government and lack of credible policies. The CDC has become worthless. It amazes me Europe has already sent to its citizenry home COVID-19 test kits and Biden has failed on every attempt and count to help the U.S. citizenry. If this was Trump he would be looking at another impeachment.

      1. Try being in Australia. This is not the country I grew up in. Somehow living through the Vietnam War and the threat of atomic warfare seem like a golden age which is incredibly sad.

        1. I know exactly what you mean. I do not even recognize the U.S… I remember all the protests against the Vietnam War and look like child’s play compared to how the many U.S citizens are behaving now. It is becoming bedlam in the streets.

    1. I am not sure about the medical profession knowing more or less than the general population. My doctor friend who happens to also be my internist is a Minister of Public Health (MPH). He highly recommends the vaccines and the booster. I believe the medical professionals are not gods like Fauci thinks he is, and they are human, having their own opinions just like the rest of us. We all need to face the fact no vaccine was ever produced with such rapidity and that is essentially what scared people and some medical professions. They do not trust the science.
