Canada’s Quebec province exempts mandatory vaccinations for health workers – RT DE

Aus der Not heraus: Kanadische Provinz Quebec verzichtet auf Impfpflicht für Gesundheitspersonal

Quebec can no longer afford vaccinations for workers in the health sector and is re-raising the rule. Thousands of workers are still unpaid. However, the vaccination requirement for newly hired employees remains.

As of October 15, the government of the Canadian province of Quebec was hoping that all healthcare workers would get the coronavirus vaccine. The deadline passed – and the deadline was extended. By November 15, the government could suspend all vaccination workers without pay.

However, this measure – as now decided by the rulers – is not enforceable given the high number of unvaccinated people. Even without regulation, hospitals were already functioning to the limit. The Quebec government announced a change in course on Wednesday.

health minister Christian Dubey It emphasized that the loss of unrelated personnel would have a “disastrous effect on the system”. About 14,000 workers in the health sector have refused vaccination so far. Of these, about 5,000 have direct contact with patients.

Some who refused vaccination had filed suit against compulsory vaccination. However, it now remains that unvaccinated employees are to be tested for coronavirus three times a week. Otherwise there is a risk of suspension without payment. Compulsory vaccination for newly hired employees also remains in place.
