Please explain to me:
How does it make sense to explain healthcare workers in the middle of a pandemic?
In Buffalo, NY, over 500 healthcare workers were fired.

Because they chose not to get the vaccine.
Because of the mass firing, there are 7 hospitals in the area that are no longer doing surgeries.
While the county itself does not have a vaccine mandate, it is widely believed that Joe’s “mandate” may have caused the hospitals to fire 500 wokers.
Fortunately, after this news broke, hundreds of people in Erie County began rising up.
They began protesting in the streets.
It was a massive demonstration and appears to be setting the stage for most protests nationwide.
According to local WIVB 4:
Time has run out for hundreds of local healthcare employees who were not comfortable getting the COVID-19 vaccination.
After a series of medical and religious exemption deadlines this fall, the final numbers are out , Kaleida Health has terminated 200 employees for refusal to get a Covid shot. Catholic Health is sending termination letters on Tuesday to 2% of it’s workforce for the same reason, and the state’s mandate for all healthcare workers to be vaccinated resulted in 106 employees being terminated at ECMC, or about 3% of its workforce. Niagara Falls Memorial medical center lost 40 employees.
Although this was not a county mandate, Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz supports the decision. “Many of the illnesses and deaths that were caused to nursing home patients last year were brought in by the staff who were positive and were sharing it with the residents they were taking care of because they didn’t know they were positive.”
Because of the recent spike in Covid cases, seven local hospitals must stop all unnecessary elective surgeries effective on Thursday, under NY State Executive Order #11, because they do not have more than 10% capacity. Those hospitals are; ECMC, Mercy, Sisters of Charity, Mount St. Mary’s, WCA in Jamestown, Brooks in Dunkirk and Wyoming County Community Hospital.
No Kaleida hospitals were on that list so Kaleida will still be doing non-essential outpatient elective surgeries at Buffalo General and Millard Suburban and so will Kenmore Mercy.
Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center is at 87% capacity and is free to keep doing all elective surgeries according to president and CEO, Joseph Ruffolo. “We’re still offering all surgeries. It’s going to be monitored weekly by the New York State Department of Health and right now we’re (at 87%), below the threshold but with the continued trend of Covid patients, it may come to a point where we’ll have to postpone non-essential patient surgeries.”
It doesn’t take a genius to know that firing healthcare workers in the middle of a pandemic will only make things worse.
200 employees fired from UMass Memorial hospital due to the vaccine mandate. But tell us more about how covid is causing a healthcare crisis, and not the liberal politicians imposing these dictates.

34,000 health care workers in NY were fired or put on leave due to Hochul’s vaccine mandate
Now some New York hospitals are already at 90% capacity
Don’t let them tell you otherwise.
The impending crisis in NY was entirely preventable.

While New York is firing healthcare workers, Florida stands out as a beacon of freedom.
One of the largest hospitals in Florida has ended its vaccine mandate for over 83,000 employees.
Per the Daily Wire:
A large Florida hospital has suspended its COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
On Thursday, AdventHealth — headquartered in Altamonte Springs, Florida, and treating patients in eight other states — will no longer force its 83,000 employees to be immunized, although it still encouraged vaccination.
“Based on scientific evidence and what we see in our hospitals every day, COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective at reducing both the risk of becoming infected and the level of harm in the case of a breakthrough infection,” AdventHealth said in a statement. “As part of our commitment to protecting the health and well-being of our team members, patients and communities, we strongly encourage all of our team members to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.”
The move comes after multiple federal courts issued preliminary injunctions against the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ enforcement of President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for healthcare workers. It also follows legislation from Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) that bars private businesses from thrusting vaccine mandates upon their employees.
“We welcome AdventHealth’s decision to comply with state law to protect Floridians’ jobs and to ensure our state’s healthcare system can continue functioning smoothly,” said DeSantis’ office in a statement, as reported by Fox 35 Orlando.
Indeed, DeSantis recently trolled President Biden by signing multiple laws against vaccine mandates in Brandon, Florida.
It appears that “Let’s go, Brandon” may have more than one meaning.
In addition to be being an anti-Biden chant, it is also becoming a pro-freedom chant!
