3000 Health Workers Suspended For Failure To Receive Covid 19 Vaccination

Thousands of health workers across France have been suspended without pay for failing to get vaccinated against covid 19 ahead of a deadline this week as health minister Olivier Veran said today.The France national public health agency estimated last week that roughly that more than twelve percent of the hospital staffs as well as around six percent of doctors in private practices are yet to be vaccinated.

"Some three thousand suspensions were notified yesterday to employee at health center and clinics who have not yet been vaccinated",Veran told RTL radio.He also added that several people had tuned in their resignations rather than signing up for the jabs.

"A large number of these suspensions are only temporary and mainly concern support staff with very few nurses among those who were told to stay home",he said.Based on figures provided by the individual hospitals,the actual number of suspended employees be higher.However the health ministry has assured people that health care will continue to be provided as usual.
