Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: MANDATORY VACCINATION

, , Leave a comment

AdventHealth’s announcement that it is considering mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for its work force of 38,000 is welcome news. While only half of the work force is vaccinated, AdventHealth is responsible for overseeing the health and well-being of hospital patients when we have a rise in COVID-19 hospitalizations. AdventHealth’s CMO for Central Florida, Dr. Neil Finkler, said it best: “[W]hy wouldn’t I do everything to protect the patients?” He’s right, but AdventHealth should not be required to go it alone. It’s time for a statewide mandate to vaccinate health-care workers in hospitals, medical facilities, and senior-living communities.
