There have been all kinds of concerns about the coronavirus these days, involving treatments, flawed vaccines, new strains and more.
Now, a new one arises, and it has to do with healthcare workers.
It’s been just revealed that thousands of health care workers across North Carolina, charged with the care of patients, have declined to get COVID-19 vaccinations, even as eligibility has opened to the entire state.
According to the latest reports, hospitals that were willing to disclose employee vaccination rates revealed that between 40% and 75% of hospital staff members had been vaccinated, an NC Watchdog Reporting Network survey shows.
Wral.com notes that the overall uptake rate among the state’s roughly 200,000 hospital employees surprised even state health care leaders.
“I thought it would have been much higher than that,” said Dr Dennis Taylor, the president of the North Carolina Nurses Association. This is a really stringent issue, and it remains to be debated further.
