Flu Shot

Ohio-based TriHealth company fires 150 employees for refusing deadly flu shots

Health freedom is under attack in Ohio, where a major Cincinnati-based healthcare conglomerate is forcing all of its 10,800 employees to take a “free” flu shot or else face termination. According to WLWT News 5 in Cincinnati, the 150 objectors who have thus far refused the shot have until December 3 to either comply with the company’s demands, provide a valid reason why they cannot take the vaccine, or else get fired.

The non-profit group TriHealth reportedly sent out letters to all of its employees several months ago notifying them that vaccination for the flu was mandatory this year, and that all healthcare workers would have to get jabbed by November 16 in order to be in compliance with company policy. And on November 27, WLWT reported that 150 TriHealth employees had refused the shot, and that they were being immediately terminated from their positions.

After the scheme gained national attention, TriHealth changed the deadline to December 3, and added stipulations that employees refusing the shot were permitted to opt out for religious or health reasons, so long as they signed special forms and submitted them before the cut-off date. But as a punishment, these defectors will still have to wear face masks at all times while on the clock, even though such masks are meant to protect the wearer from flu transmission, not patients.
