IU Health: 125 no longer employed after declining vaccine

Regional News

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s largest hospital system says more than 100 workers are no longer employed with the health network after they did not comply with its mandate for all employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Indiana University Health said Thursday that 125 employees had departed from the system after a two-week unpaid suspension period that ended Sept. 14. The Indianapolis Business Journal reports that officials did not say whether those workers quit or were fired, saying in a statement that they “chose not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and have left the organization.”

IU Health announced its COVID-19 vaccine mandate in June for all its doctors, nurses and other employees.
