Health care workers were hailed as heroes for their tireless work during the pandemic last year, but now some of them are being fired for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine.
News 12 is told security began removing hundreds of unvaccinated workers from Garnet Health in Wallkill through back exits now that the state vaccine mandate is in effect.
It's a sharp contrast to the "thanks" those same front-line workers received for their service just a few months ago.
Registered nurse Caitlin Meagher is one of those workers who lost their job Monday for remaining unvaccinated against state mandate.
“Our government, our state is forcing us to leave health care. We don’t want to leave. We worked the entire time through the pandemic, showed up to work when nobody else wanted to," says Meagher.
