New York Hospitals Firing Unvaccinated Workers at Midnight, No Unemployment Insurance

Previously: National Guard to Replace Unvaccinated Healthcare Workers in New York

“At midnight tonight, you must all receive your vaccine, or you will turn into a fired worker” really reminded me of the film Gremlins.

I think there’s also a bigger Gremlins analogy here, where the cute Gizmo doesn’t want to get vaxed and turn into the mutant monsters.

Anglin once wrote a review of Gremlins.

I think he maybe needs to write a new one in light of the vax agenda, and the metaphor.

Gremlins had such a great theme song.

They should play the Gremlins theme song when they’re running nurses out of the hospital.

Maybe if more people had watched Gremlins, this would not be happening.


New York hospitals on Monday began firing or suspending healthcare workers for defying a state order to get the COVID-19 vaccine, and resulting staff shortages prompted some hospitals to postpone elective surgeries or curtail services.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told a news conference the city’s hospitals were not yet seeing a major impact from the mandate, adding he worried about other areas of the state where vaccination rates are lower.

A spokeswoman for Catholic Health, one of the largest healthcare providers in Western New York, said it had reached full compliance, counting staff members who had been vaccinated, those with exemptions and some who had been suspended without pay.

The spokeswoman, JoAnne Cavanaugh, refused to say how many workers had been suspended or granted exemptions due to medical or religious reasons.

Catholic Health said it was forced to postpone “a small number” of elective surgeries.

Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo suspended elective inpatient surgeries and had stopped accepting intensive-care patients from other hospitals as it prepares to fire hundreds of unvaccinated employees, a spokesman Peter Cutler said.

Cutler said the decision to curtail some operations would inconvenience patients and hurt hospital finances. Elective inpatient surgeries bring in about $1 million per week, he said.

“We had to make a decision as to where we could temporarily make some changes so that we could ensure other areas of services are as little affected as possible,” Cutler said. “Financially, it’s a big deal.”

The inoculation push comes as President Joe Biden and other state and federal political leaders ratchet up pressure on unvaccinated Americans, some of whom object to mandates on religious or health grounds.

New York’s state health department issued an order last month mandating that all healthcare workers receive at least their first COVID-19 shot by Sept. 27, triggering a rush by hospitals to get their employees inoculated.

Of the 43,000 employees at the New York City’s 11 public hospitals, about 5,000 were not vaccinated, Dr. Mitchell Katz, head of NYC Health + Hospitals, said at the news conference with de Blasio.

Healthcare workers who are fired for refusing to get vaccinated will not be eligible for unemployment insurance unless they are able to provide a valid doctor-approved request for medical accommodation, Hochul’s office said.

Yes, the process of cutting social services, after firing people, has already begun.

They are attempting to starve people out.

It’s only a matter of time until they announce that the food banks require a vaccine passport to receive canned goods.

“If you don’t get this life-saving medicine, we’re going to starve you to death” is the sort of narrative that could only exist right now.

What do the people who haven’t been banned yet think of this?
