However, other healthcare workers have chosen to walk away from employers mandating the COVID vaccine. In New York, one hospital actually had to halt baby delivery services, due to a mass number of workers quitting over the COVID vaccine mandate.

Meanwhile, recently polling shows that more than seven in ten unvaccinated Americans would quit their jobs before getting the COVID vaccine, if their employers mandated this shot as a condition of employment.

An undoable mandate?

There will come a point when these establishments simply have too few workers to operate their businesses. Therefore, they will have to choose whether or not mandating the COVID vaccine is worth going out of business altogether.
