NY Could Call In National Guard If Thousands Of Unvaccinated Health Care Workers Are Fired

New York Governor Kathy Hochul, in a statement released on Saturday, said she is considering calling in the National Guard if there is a staffing shortage of health care workers due to her vaccine mandate policy.

Reuters reports that as many as 72,000 health care workers in the state could be out of a job for not complying with the vaccine mandate.

Reasons For The Plan

Under the plan announced over the weekend, Hochul would call a state of emergency allowing her to bring in National Guard and health care workers from other states, and retired nurses.

It would even allow her to bring in health care workers from other countries.

In the case of National Guard troops, the state would call up members who have medical training.

The deadline for the 72,000 health care workers to comply with the vaccine mandate is Monday, September 27.

Those who are terminated will not be eligible for unemployment unless they have a valid request for medical accommodation from their doctor.

NY Not The Only Place Using National Guard In Ways Not Intended

The National Guard traditionally helps out in times of war and natural disasters. But as vaccine mandates continue, and Americans are being threatened with termination of employment if they do not get vaccinated, the Guard is being called into service for other things.

Now, in Massachusetts, they are driving kids to school.

Governor Charlie Baker activated 250 Guard troops would to drive school buses.

NPR reports that the school bus driver shortage is nationwide, also due to mask and vaccine mandates.

What The Numbers Are Saying

According to a Reuters tally, hospitalizations due to the Delta variant peaked in early September. Nationally, cases are down around 25%.

On Friday, the CDC chief took the unusual step of approving booster shots of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine after the agency’s advisory board advised against recommending boosters for most people.

On Sunday, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky talked about who would be eligible for the booster based on how high-risk their place of employment. 

“That includes people in homeless shelters, people in group homes, people in prisons, but also importantly, our people who work…with vulnerable communities, so our health care workers, our teachers, our grocery workers, our public transportation employees.”
