Vaccine Yes Mandate NoJuly 6, 2021
1199SEIU encourages all members to get vaccinated for their own health and safety. Vaccine mandates are unjust, unnecessary, and dismissive to the concerns of healthcare heroes.
• Healthcare workers have the right to make personal health decisions.
• Vaccine mandates disregard deep-seated fears instilled by our country’s history of non-consensual medical testing and mistreatment of racial and ethnic minority groups.
• Enhanced COVID-19 testing and continued masking for healthcare workers who choose not to be vaccinated provides adequate protection for patients and employees.
