Scores of workers at a Houston Methodist hospital system have been suspended and face being fired for refusing the COVID-19 vaccination.

Scores of workers at a Houston hospital system have been suspended and face being fired for refusing the COVID-19 vaccination, a controversial company mandate that has drawn protests and an outcry from those facing termination.

"We are nearly 100% compliant with our COVID-19 vaccine mandate," Boom said in an email to staff Tuesday.

"Houston Methodist is officially the first hospital system in the country to achieve this goal for the benefit of its patients.".

Boom said 27 of the 178 suspended workers have received one dose of vaccine, and that he is hopeful they will get the second dose.

The Houston Methodist controversy "foreshadows the coming months," said Ogbonnaya Omenka, an associate professor and public health specialist at Butler University in Indianapolis.

Still, more than 100 Houston Methodist employees filed suit against the hospital system last month saying the vaccines are "experimental" and that the mandatory vaccination policy is unfair

Boom said the mandate has been challenged by the media and some outspoken employees

"As the first hospital system to mandate COVID-19 vaccines we were prepared for this," he said
