Poll Shows 95% of Unvaccinated Will Not Get the Vaccine
(Meridian, Idaho) Take a Stand Now (TASN) is calling on the Idaho Legislature to reconvene on a single issue to resolve the mandatory vaccine issue for Idaho’s health care workers.Advertisement
“The health care corporations are counting on an increase in vaccination rates now that the FDA has approved the Pfizer vaccine. In a poll completed by TASN on Monday the question-Now that the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine has full FDA approval, will you get the vaccine? Over 95% of respondents answered ‘no’” said TASN spokesperson, Victoria Stump.
“In light of employer COVID-19 vaccine mandates and some states/districts taking the position that the renewal of healthcare licensing will hinge on vaccine status, TASN will be sending a proposal to members of the Idaho State Legislature,” Stump said.
The TASN proposal would call for the Idaho House and Senate to reconvene on the matter of employee COVID-19 vaccine mandates with the individual legislators making a written commitment to meet on this single issue.Advertisement
“This proposal unites Idaho in the fight to preserve healthcare in the state, as well as the individual rights of Idahoans to make their own health decisions without threat of lost wages and financial devastation,” Stump concluded.
Both the House and the Senate will receive this proposal and if enough signatures are collected, the Idaho Legislature can move forward to protect its people.
