University Of Pittsburgh Medical Center Won't Require Staff To Take COVID-19 Vaccine Due To 'General Uncertainty
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) won't require its health care employees to take the upcoming COVID-19 vaccine, which the medical provider expects to begin offering as soon as this month, according to PennLive.
The reason are several-fold, according to UPMC medical director of infection prevention and epidemiology, Dr. Graham Snyder. For starters, general uncertainty over the vaccine. And while the $21 billion nonprofit organization (which employs 89,000 people) has a mandatory flu vaccination policy, it's "based on decades of experience with the influenza vaccine," according to Snyder.https://www.zerohedge.com/medical/university-pittsburgh-medical-center-wont-require-staff-take-covid-19-vaccine-due-general
