(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Healthcare workers around the country are refusing to take the new COVID-19 vaccines. In some areas the refusal rate is as high as 50-60% of workers. Turns out medical professionals don’t care to be used as guinea pigs for a rushed and potentially dangerous vaccine.
In California, health workers at facilities across the state are refusing to take the vaccine at incredibly high rates. At one hospital in Los Angeles over half of the workers are refusing the vaccine while 20% to 50% of workers at other facilities share in their sentiment.
So many workers in Riverside County refused the vaccine, hospital and public officials were forced to meet to discuss how best to distribute the unused doses.
The Los Angeles Times points out that the refusal to take the vaccine among healthcare workers comes as a surprise to researchers “who assumed hospital staff would be among those most in tune with the scientific data backing the vaccines.”
There are a myriad of reasons why healthcare workers might want to think twice before taking the vaccine.
Maybe they were scared by a video out of Tennessee in which a nurse passed out upon receiving the vaccine. She claimed it was because she just passes out when she feels pain but most intelligent people know that’s likely not the case.
Some women might not want to risk taking the vaccine after there have been several reports of it potentially causing infertility, not to mention who knows what it could do to a developing baby inside a pregnant woman.
31-year-old nurse April Lu of the Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in LA says she’s choosing “the risk of having COVID” over taking the vaccine with its unknown effects and yet undetermined safety for pregnant women. Lu is six months pregnant.
Lu is not alone. Many of her coworkers are also refusing the vaccine in favor of taking the risk of getting COVID which they feel they are equipped to prevent or handle.
The rate at which healthcare workers are refusing to take the vaccine is causing epidemiologists to be concerned, saying there could be “disastrous” public health implications.
It turns out that healthcare professionals may be more reluctant to take the vaccine in comparison to the general population. A recent survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 29% of healthcare workers are “vaccine hesitant” while the general population is around 27%.
The fact that healthcare workers are questioning the safety of the vaccine should raise red flags for those of us with no medical background at all.
Despite the fact that the left has been trying to convince us all that the vaccine is the answer to our prayers many are skeptical and rightfully so.
There have been disturbing reports of the vaccine’s ability to render women infertile as well as alter DNA. Does this sound like something people would want to be injected with just to fight a virus with a 99% survival rate?
If you have doubts about the vaccine, follow your gut. It’s usually right.
