Healthcare Workers at the Texas hospital have filed a lawsuit against their hospital administration for forcing them to take Covid-19 vaccinations. Roughly over 170 healthcare Workers have sued the hospital employer.
Employees of Houston Methodist Hospital reported that the employer’s mandate for compulsory immunization had violated the Nuremberg Code. The Nuremberg Code has designed some set of standards after World War II. The Nuremberg Code says that experimentation should be prevented on human subjects without their consent. The Houston Methodist Hospital employees also stated that the Texas hospital employees were left with no option and would have lost their jobs if not vaccinated. This violated their state law.
The mandate was done as there were factors regarding inoculations, such as ambivalence and skepticism. Public health officials have been forced to get vaccinated to try new strategies to persuade people to get vaccinated.Despite the mandate, most of the public healthcare Workers were reluctant to get vaccinated. A management-side law firm Fisher Phillips conducted a survey of 900 employees. The survey states that out of 700 employees, only 9% employees were willing to get vaccinated.
