ET: The 178 hospital employees who are refusing to get vaccinated have been suspended without pay for two weeks, the Washington Post reports.

“We only wish them well and thank them for their past service to our community, and we must respect the decision they made.”.

More than 100 employees at Houston Methodist Hospital are suing the hospital for requiring all staff to get vaccinated for COVID-19.

According to ABC News, 117 employees joined a lawsuit that was filed on Friday in Montgomery County.

The suit alleges the hospital is “illegally requiring its employees to be injected with an experimental vaccine as a condition of employment.”.

“It is legal for health care institutions to mandate vaccines, as we have done with the flu vaccine since 2009.

The COVID-19 vaccines have proven through rigorous trials to be very safe and very effective and are not experimental.”. »
