Hospitals illegally firing nurses for refusing flu vaccines in violation of state law, Civil Rights Act

If you live in the United States and work in the healthcare field, your personal freedom to make your own healthcare decisions may soon be on the chopping block, that is if it has not already been nixed.

According to reports, an increasing number of hospitals and healthcare facilities across the country are caving to government propaganda pressuring them to illegally terminate all healthcare workers who refuse influenza vaccines, an authoritarian trend that openly violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as well as state law.

As reported by ABC News, one such hospital in Indiana has already canned at least eight employees, including three veteran nurses, for refusing to be injected with high-risk chemicals and viral fragments disguised as preventive medicine. Defying these employees’ natural and constitutional rights to govern the affairs of their own bodies, the hospital warned these faithful workers that if they did not get a flu shot by December 15, they would immediately be fired — and several of them have since been terminated.

“This is my body. I have a right to refuse the flu vaccine,” explained 61-year-old Ethel Hoover, a veteran nurse who was recently fired from her position at Indiana University Health Goshen Hospital (IUHGH) for refusing to get a flu shot, to ABC News. “For 21 years, I have religiously not taken the flu vaccine, and now you’re telling me that I believe in it.”

Hoover added that she has only called in sick four or five times at most during her entire two-decade career at the hospital because she was almost always healthy, despite never having gotten a flu shot. According to ABC News, Hoover wore black on her last day of employment with the hospital as a sign of “mourning” — Hoover’s 22-year anniversary at the hospital would have been this February.

Several of Hoover’s coworkers, who were all well-aware of the flu shot mandate, told reporters they were shocked the hospital actually went through with the firings. Fellow nurse Kacy Davis says she was “horrified” to learn that Hoover was fired for refusing the shot, and that Hoover was well-liked and was always a great mentor and friend to many of the other nurses with whom she worked.
