Employees band together, file lawsuit against hospital’s COVID-19 vaccine requirement

It was only a matter of time before employees decided to fight back against mandatory vaccinations, which a number of corporations are trying to incorporate as a condition of employment.

According to the Washington Examiner, 117 employees at Houston Methodist Hospital filed a joint lawsuit against their employer, claiming in the court filing that hospital executives were planning on terminating anyone working at the hospital who refused to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. 

Human “guinea pigs”

The lawsuit, which is already making national headlines and depending on the outcome, could serve as a precedent for other groups of employees seeking similar actions, was filed in a Texas court on Friday by conservative attorney Jared Woodfill.

Woodfill’s argument rests on the wording of the post-World War 2-era Nuremberg Code ethics standard, which prohibits human testing without consent. In other words, he’s arguing that employees of the hospital are essentially test subjects if they’re forced to take a vaccine against their will in order to remain employed.

“Methodist Hospital is forcing its employees to be human ‘guinea pigs’ as a condition for continued employment,” a statement from Woodfill said.

“As CEO, Marc Boom [is] attempting to increase company profits by ‘leading the way’ and enticing potential patients to Defendant Methodist at the expense of other health care providers who do not force their employees to be human ‘guinea pigs’ as a condition for employment,” the attorney added.

Woodfill also cited the unknowns concerning the “mRNA gene modification” in COVID-19 vaccines, which critics of the vaccine have labeled as potentially dangerous as far as future side effects, with many in the scientific community disputing such claims.

Get the shot or get fired

Houston Methodist management made clear in March that all employees must receive a vaccination before June 7, or else face the possibility of being handed their walking papers. Of the prestigious hospital’s 2,600 employees, roughly 99% have complied with the mandate.

“As health care workers, it is our sacred obligation to do whatever we can to protect our patients, who are the most vulnerable in our community,” a hospital spokesperson said in an attempt to defend the mandate.

But lead plaintiff Jennifer Bridges, a nurse at the hospital, argued that she’s not anti-vaccine and has taken many in her career, but feels as though she reserves the right to make the decision on whether to take a vaccine that was released to the public in under a year’s time.

“It’s like you’re being forced to do this, whether you like it or not,” Bridges said in a statement to the Washington Post.

Only time will tell how a judge in the case rules on the tricky situation, but either way, it will likely be a game-changer that will allow more employers to initiate such mandates or it could give workers across the country a legal foundation to opt-out of such mandates.

  2. I took the vaccine because I was in an extremely high risk group. That was being an older 325 lb gorilla with diabetes, heart disease, and HBP, besides being bald, short, and ugly.

    But for those at little risk the only purpose I see to be forced to take an EXPERIMENTAL medication is social engineering at people control. This is made all the worse since neither employers nor the vaccine manufacturers can be held responsible for adverse effects.

  8. Review the Nuremberg Code. This is a biological not really a vaccine. It is experimental and we do not know the long term effects will be on your body. You can’t be forced to take something experimental. Normal vaccines are followed and studied 10 yrs max before release. There are additives in them that are harmful to many. They need to disclose all additives which they aren’t. I won’t get this. I’m not a non vaxxer but my research verifying ingredients and harm they can cause makes me say no way.

  11. My wife and I had our two shots last March and have had no adverse problems with it. If you do not want to get the vaccine–then don’t–you have the right to possibly kill yourself if you want to. But possibly spreading the covid 19 to your neighbors or fellow relatives or friends–I would say that –that is immoral and unlawful in God’s eyes! Nough said!!!!!

    1. That Gary is your choice to make and I am glad to hear you have not had any adverse reactions….good for you but as you know if you have checked there have been those that have gotten covid AFTER having the vaccine. It was released for emergency vaccine administration but is NOT FDA approved which means everyone that has taken it are test subjects for reactions to it. As you brought up God…let me tell you what God says….”Trust My Word Not Man” “Fear Nothing Pray about Everything” “I Will Be All You Need if You Have Total Faith and Trust in Me” and most important is our days are numbered at conception and only God knows that number. God Bless

  13. The use of fetal cells from aborted babies is what is immoral, GRAVELY IMMORAL! Moderna and AstroZenica are the worst so far, They actually use fetal cells to make their vaccines. Pfizer and Johnson and Johnson originated from a cell-line that was developed from fetal cells from aborted babies and then used fetal cells to test their vaccines. Fearful of spreading Covid to friends and neighbors? Follow the recommended guidelines! You don’t have to risk taking an “experimental biological agent” that doesn’t have FDA approval to do that. The general survival rate for Covid-19 positive cases is 99.97%, children is 99.99%. The long-term effects of these vaccines could be a lot worse than that!!!
