Texas hospital systems are requiring all their workers to be vaccinated for COVID-19, and many health care workers don’t agree with the idea of mandating the vaccine.
The requirements came as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to surge due to the recent emergence of the highly contagious delta variant.
However, health care workers are fighting back, arguing the COVID-19 vaccine should be a choice.
Nurses and health care workers gathered in front of Texas Health Harris Methodist hospital in downtown Fort Worth Saturday to protest the mandate.
“Regardless if you believe in the vaccine or not, it should never be mandated,” nurse Keli Culver said.
