Sumary of The Second Act of the Vaccine Resistance:
- Singled out for strict new vaccination requirements are 17 million health care workers employed by hospitals and other institutions that accept Medicare and Medicaid.
- In March, a national survey conducted by The Washington Post indicated that nearly half of frontline health care workers remained unvaccinated even though they had been eligible for the shot since December, and even though they had witnessed so much devastation first hand.
- This summer, a quarter of New York State’s hospital workers — roughly 112,500 people — still had not received their injections, which prompted Governor Cuomo, during his final weeks in office, to mandate that by the end of September they would have no choice.
- Health-care professionals, who presumably might have guided us toward closure, were not of one mind, and the dissent extended beyond aides, orderlies and assistants.
- He was put off by Dr. Zelenko’s statements — and the first to share them with me — and yet he has maintained a complicated relationship to the vaccine.
- Last month it cited a study showing that those with previous Covid cases, who remained unvaccinated, were more than twice as likely to be reinfected than those who had received shots.
- 23, the Food and Drug Administration granted full approval to Pfizer-BioNTech’s coronavirus vaccine for people 16 and up, paving the way for an increase in mandates in both the public and private sectors.
- guidance would apply, and where states have instituted their own mask policies.
