Houston Methodist — one of the first health systems to require the coronavirus shots — terminated or accepted the resignations of 153 workers Tuesday, spokeswoman Gale Smith said. Smith declined to specify how many were in each category.

Earlier this month, a federal district court judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by one of those employees, Jennifer Bridges, a former nurse who alleged the policy was unlawful and forced staffers to be “guinea pigs” for vaccines that had not gone through the full Food and Drug Administration approval process. The FDA has authorized three coronavirus vaccines for emergency use, following rigorous clinical trials involving tens of thousands of people, and both Pfizer and Moderna have applied for full approval for their vaccines.

“This is not coercion,” U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes, a Ronald Reagan appointee, wrote on June 12. “Methodist is trying to do their business of saving lives without giving them the COVID-19 virus. It is a choice made to keep staff, patients, and their families safer.”



A friend of mine, a doctor, recently "fired" a patient who refused to say if he was vaccinated or not. He also refused to wear a mask. The assumption was he wasn't vaccinated. The former patient was endangering the lives of my friend's patients who are immunocompromised and therefore cannot be vaccinated.

A patient should be able to visit a doctor or a hospital with the expectation that their healthcare providers are all vaccinated. Not just because the patient may be immunocompromised, or that they might be among the tiny percent of breakthrough cases, but because healthcare providers should believe in medicine and science.

The Houston Methodist Hospital employees are not "guinea pigs". 150 million Americans have been vaccinated.
