A group of Canadian hospitals announced their intention to fire unvaccinated employees in October. The last chance is to be suspended from work on October 8 for 2 weeks, during which it will still be possible to have time to make the first dose of the vaccine.
The decision to fire the unvaccinated staff was made by the university health network, which includes the Princess Margaret Cancer Center and Toronto General Hospital. For starters, medical staff who ignored vaccinations will be on unpaid leave for 2 weeks, which will begin on October 8. Then, in case of refusal to vaccinate, their employment contracts will be terminated.
Some Canadian companies have already introduced mandatory vaccinations for their employees by the fall, and the federal government has announced plans to introduce similar measures for all government employees. Difficult decisions were made in connection with the outbreak in the country of the Delta strain.
The hospital team has already warned 900 of its staff, who did not provide data on their vaccinations, that the first vaccination must be given no later than September 8, that is, one month before the start of the first phase of suspension from work of all unvaccinated.
