Texas Hospital Sued by 117 Employees for Requiring COVID Vaccine to Work
Houston Methodist is being sued by a group of 117 medical employees who charge that a requirement they receive COVID-19 vaccines forces them "to be human guinea pigs." The overwhelming majority of employees at the Texas hospital have already been vaccinated against the coronavirus. Attorney Jared Woodfill is representing a group of employees suing the hospital for, what he says, is "illegally requiring its employees to be injected with an experimental vaccine as a condition of employment." The lawsuit contends that Houston Methodist is violating the Nuremberg Code with the mandate. It should be noted that this particular hospital has required its employees to choose between being vaccinated against the flu or finding employment elsewhere since 2009.
