The vaccination rate for New York hospital employees rose Monday night as the deadline for the first shot arrived, but some are still refusing to get it and risk losing their jobs, while others remain “very scared.”
Monday, September 27, marked the deadline for New York hospital workers to get their first dose of the vaccine for the Chinese coronavirus, as announced by former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) in August.
According to preliminary data from Gov. Kathy Hochul’s office, the vaccination rate for hospital employees rose to 92 percent as the deadline arrived.
