The hope is in the power of resistance, not in the system, sadly.
In an about-face, facing a drastic service reduction, Quebec has decided that health-care workers already employed won’t be forced to get a COVID-19 vaccine, the province’s health minister said Wednesday.
Health Minister Christian Dubé said that the province is facing 500 service reductions or reorganizations if it goes ahead with its planned Nov. 15 deadline for staff vaccines.
Instead of the previous plan, now only new hires will be required to be vaccinated, he said, though the province will try hard to replace those workers with vaccinated ones over time.
They just don’t want an immediate void of 8000 health care workers at once. Over time, they will continue to pressure these poor people, treat them with inequity like second class workers, and replace them with vaccinated workers when they are able — a vaccine that will have lost it’s durability by then.
