Source: Orlando Sentinel

“Amid vaccine mandate challenges nationwide, the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota fired 700 unvaccinated employees on Tuesday after they failed to get the shots by the Monday deadline, according to news reports. The firings represent about 1% of Mayo’s 73,000 workers, reported WCCO-TV, a CBS affiliate in Minnesota. The employees were required to either receive at least the first protective shot against COVID-19 or obtain an exemption for medical or religious reasons. Mayo said it granted the majority of exemption requests, the Star Tribune reported.” (01/05/22)
