Several weeks ago, Houston Methodist Hospital ordered employees to get the COVID vaccine by June 7th or they'll be fired.
A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of 117 employees by Houston attorney Jared Woodfill for “requiring its employees to be injected with an experimental vaccine as a condition of employment.”
“For the first time in the history of the United States, an employer is forcing an employee to participate in an experimental vaccine trial as a condition for continued employment. On or about March 31, 2021, Defendants The Methodist Hospital (“Methodist”) and Houston Methodist The 3 Woodlands Hospital (“Woodlands Hospital”) became the first major health care system in the country to force it employees to be injected with an experimental COVID-19 mRNA gene modification injection (“experimental vaccine”) or be fired. Methodist Hospital is forcing its employees to be human “guinea pigs” as a condition for continued employment.”
Woodfill says that Houston Methodist CEO Dr. Marc Boom is subjecting employees to:
“ medical experimentation as a prerequisite to feeding their families. This type of compelled medical experimentation on humans is consistent with the policy behind the creation of the Nuremberg Code. Informed consent to participate in a medical experiment is the first principle of the Nuremberg Code. It requires that the individual be informed of the risks and benefits of the experiment. The individual must have freedom of choice without force, deceit, fraud, threat, solicitation, or any type of binding or coercion.”
“As health care workers, it is our sacred obligation to do whatever we can to protect our patients, who are the most vulnerable in our community. It is our duty and our privilege. It is unfortunate that the few remaining employees who refuse to get vaccinated and put our patients first are responding in this way. It is legal for health care institutions to mandate vaccines, as we have done with the flu vaccine since 2009.”
Woodfill said the plaintiffs include some nurses, but that most are not healthcare providers and none are doctors.
