The Australian MP has called on the state government to detain thousands of vaccinated health workers

An Australian MP from the state of New South Wales (NSW) has called on state health minister Brad Hazard to retain thousands of frontline health workers who have not been vaccinated against the CCP virus.

On Sept. 2, Hazard, in an open letter to Education Minister Sarah Mitchell and Police and Emergency Services Minister David Elliott, called on ministers in Western Sydney’s Liberal MP, Tania Davis, to consider ways to keep health workers unvaccinated in public health.

Currently, according to the NSW government’s latest policy, September has set a deadline of at least one dose of the Covid-1 vaccine for thousands of health workers in 300 states. After the date, those who are not vaccinated will be placed on unpaid leave until they issue a vaccination or medical exemption certificate.

The letter said, “I am writing to you on behalf of the 1000 government employees under your authority who are facing imminent dismissal as a result of not being vaccinated as described in the Public Health Order.”

“As the population of New South Wales returns to a new normal state in just two months, I believe these government employees must have some other helpful way than to quit their jobs.”

NSW announced the resumption of its roadmap on September 27, which promised to restore the freedom of all residents after the immunization rate hit 90 percent, which is estimated to be December 1.

“In this time of crisis, we need more skilled health workers, academics, police and emergency services on the frontline – no less. The Mandatory Vaccination Mandate will lay off thousands of trained, qualified, experienced frontline workers, ”Davis said in a September 28 Facebook post.

“The government has already acknowledged the shortage of key staff. By announcing the retrenchment of health workers that now with the dismissal of 1000 employees, we have an unacceptable high on government services for our community, but cannot be avoided. ”

He called on more ministers to explore options to keep these workers working, such as rapid antigen testing, additional PPE, and increased home time.

He advised face-to-face roles in front of health workers, allowing the use of annual long service leave, and even allowing annual leave without pay.

Twenty-four percent of NSW’s 140,000 health workers received at least one dose. State health authorities are currently removing workers from regional areas of the state to meet the manpower shortage.

Health Minister Hazard said he would not exempt any local health district or hospital from vaccination rules.

“If they want to put their patients and their colleagues at risk, they will have no position,” he told the Sydney Morning Herald Hazard.

Two legal challenges to the vaccine mandate are currently being considered in NSW court: Natasha Henry, an elderly care worker, and John Larter, an emergency worker, who have been suspended following a lawsuit.
