Two months after Emmanuel Macron’s announcement, healthcare workers must have received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine on Wednesday, September 15, to go to work. This concerns hospital staff, nursing homes, home helpers, but also firefighters. Without this vaccination, employees will be suspended without pay.
Covid-19: at Ernée’s hospital, vaccination of caregivers is close to 100%
We have heard a lot in recent weeks that the hospital was going to suffer, losing staff in sectors already under pressure. But, in Mayenne hospitals, caregivers are ultimately vaccinated more than 90%. This obligation will probably leave traces. “They played a dangerous game,” a Laval hospital nurse said of the matter. Lastly, Mayenne facilities should not witness waves of outflows of caregivers who reject the vaccine.
Mandatory vaccination: “liberticidal measure” testifies this Mayenne nurse that she will not be vaccinated
At Laval we have not yet commented on the figures, nor the organization. The management waited for vaccinations until the last moment. Four nurses, for example, have already made it known that they will no longer be coming to work. It is not much, it is true, but “they are services that are getting into difficulties” slides a unionist.
In Mayenne, more than 90% of the staff will be vaccinated. A dozen caregivers and nurses should step back. Most of the other caregivers have started the vaccination, especially as soon as the wallet is touched. At Château-Gontier, the human resources department is not concerned, health executives have not expressed any particular concern. Certainly, some substitutions will have to be managed as sick leave, a situation that will further complicate matters.
