The Right Stuff: Covid vaccine mandates versus personal choice

January 17, 2022 | Posted in Covid-19: Solano Response | Daily Republic I recently spoke with two local Kaiser Permanente hospital nurses. They each had a story to tell.

When Covid-19 first presented itself within the U.S., these nurses were employed at Kaiser

Permanente Vacaville Medical Center and were long-term employees. They complied with safety protocols although they were not vaccinated. These nurses are hardworking, responsible health care providers.

Under the Trump administration, vaccines were not required for hospital employees. People could make their own choices to be vaccinated.

Rules related to vaccinations for health care workers have changed under President Joe Biden. He chose to mandate them. The U.S. Supreme Court this week sided with the Biden administration.[ more]
