Kathy Hochul Urges Healthcare Workers To Get Vaccinated

Hochul has passed a vaccine mandate for healthcare workers and many workers are refusing to take the vaccine. Many might resign from their job in protest as they feel it steps into their freedom of making the choice. However, Hochul has urged healthcare workers to take the vaccine and cut down the risk of spreading the virus inside the hospital. Furthermore, Hochul said, “I commend all of the health care workers who have stepped up to get themselves vaccinated, and I urge all remaining health care workers who are unvaccinated to do so now so they can continue providing care.”
