California Nurse Shortage Reaches “Crisis Level” As Vaccine Mandate Wards Off Traveling Nurses, by Tyler Durden

One thing the mainstream media hasn’t even tried to explain away or lie its way through is why so many medical professionals refuse to take the vaccines. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

As America’s hospital beds have again filled with sick COVID  patients, nurses and other healthcare workers have been quitting at the fastest rate since the early days of the pandemic, when nurses in some NYC hospitals were using garbage bags instead of PPE.

Cole of Scripps Health said the state’s testing requirement, imposed last week, already has discouraged some out-of-state, traveling nurses from taking temporary jobs at California hospitals.

“If they don’t want to get vaccinated, they are turning down California assignments,” he said.
