117 employees sue Houston Methodist over COVID-19 vaccine requirement

The lawsuit claims Houston Methodist “is forcing its employees to be human ‘guinea pigs’ as a condition for continued employment."

HOUSTON — 117 employees have joined a lawsuit against Houston Methodist over its requirement that all employees receive a COVID-19 vaccine as a condition of employment.

According to Houston Methodist policy, employees have until June 7 to get vaccinated or risk losing their jobs.

The lawsuit claims Houston Methodist “is forcing its employees to be human ‘guinea pigs’ as a condition for continued employment,” calling the vaccine “experimental,” since it was granted emergency use authorization but has not received FDA approval.

Jennifer Bridges, a registered nurse who has worked for Houston Methodist for more than six years, spoke with KHOU 11 last month and said she planned to sue the hospital. Bridges said then she just isn’t ready to receive the vaccine and told KHOU 11 she wants more time so the FDA can gather more data and research.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting how this lawsuit proceeds, because it will provide precedent, for turning American workers into unwilling lab rats, as a condition of employment, if the suit is overturned.

And I, for one, bristle at this, even if Mike and I DID take the J & J jab, to enable us to visit my Mom, who lives in an assisted living facility closeby.
