From heroes to zeroes: Mayo Clinic cans 700 unvaccinated workers

The Blaze

Remember the good ol’ days when the people on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic in our nation’s hospitals were hailed as heroes for their selflessness?

We saw signs regularly hailing the efforts and self-sacrifice of nurses, doctors, first responders, essentially anyone even tangentially associated with health care.

Hospitals even had “Heroes Work Here” signs posted outside their front doors for the adoring public to see and offer prayers of thanks for the greatness and selflessness of these people who were willing to take a risk to care for those of us who might have caught the COVID bug.

Those days are apparently long gone at the world-famous Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

The medical center said Tuesday that it had fired 700 of its employees for not getting vaccinated against COVID-19 by the Jan. 3 deadline, WCCO-TV reported.
