Ahh, there's nothing like a little—what was that word, so popular over the past five years?—resistance:
An upstate New York hospital said it will pause the delivery of babies in two weeks because of a spate of resignations by maternity unit workers who are objecting to COVID-19 vaccination mandates.
...During a news conference Friday afternoon, Lewis County Health System CEO Gerald Cayer said seven of the 30 hospital workers who resigned were from the hospital's maternity ward. He added that another seven maternity unit staffers were undecided about getting the vaccine, the television station reported...
Twenty of the staff members who resigned worked in clinical positions like nurses, therapists and technicians, the newspaper reported.
"If we can pause the service and now focus on recruiting nurses who are vaccinated, we will be able to reengage in delivering babies here in Lewis County," Cayer told reporters.
Good luck! In the meantime, marvel over the stunning ironic imagery of it all: COVID-19 is apparently so fearsome and terrible a disease that they have to shut down maternity wards because people are so reluctant to be inoculated against it!
