More than 17,000 health-care workers in Quebec will be suspended next month for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19, and now provincial officials are scrambling to fill in the gaps.

A spokesperson for Health Minister Christian Dubé told CBC on Monday that a total of 17,642 employees within Quebec’s health-care network still haven’t had their first dose.

Nearly half of those unvaccinated employees are front-line workers who are in direct contact with patients, the spokesperson said.

They will all be suspended Oct. 15 when the provincial decree that mandates all health-care workers be fully vaccinated kicks in.

Thousands more who’ve only received a first dose will also be off the job until they get the second.

‘Anxiety is through the roof’

Suspending that many workers at one time could be catastrophic, according to Kristina Hoare, a representative of the nurses’ union in Montreal’s West Island.

“It affects us because we’re going to be missing staff in a system that’s already not doing well,” she said.

“Anxiety is through the roof and every other adjective that you can add to anxiety right now is how we’re feeling as a whole.”

The health authority in Laval has 800 workers who’ll be suspended. CISSS de Laval deputy director Chantal Fiset says they’re trying to convince unvaccinated workers to get the shot.

She says they’ve also called hundreds of retired workers to see if they can come back and help out, but she doesn’t think that will work.

“We’re not saying that we’re 100 per cent sure that we’ll hire 800 people, I cannot say that,” Fiset said. 

Policy announced in early September

Quebec Premier François Legault announced the mandatory vaccination policy in early September, saying anyone not adequately vaccinated by Oct. 15 will be suspended without pay.

The policy is the province’s latest attempt to tame COVID-19 without imposing more restrictions on the public, with the premier’s announcement coming just over a week after the implementation of the vaccine passport.

Public health experts have long called for mandatory vaccination for health-care workers, given the risk involved if there’s an outbreak among vulnerable patients.

  1. There IS NOT a Covid pandemic. Do the RESEARCH. Pull your head out of your
    butt and STOP watching the mainstream media in Canada which is owned by
    the same three globalist companies. Did you know that out of Canada’s almost 400
    hospitals across this land each hospital only has an average of 11.1 ICU beds of varying abilities? So when the CBC, Global (owned by an entertainment company) or CTV say things are overstretched
    and an emergency, NSS. Obviously, if there are only 11.1 beds that have to deal with all
    sorts of issues like car accidents, heart attacks, strokes, suicides due to lockdowns, that does
    not leave much left for the odd Covid A or D patient. As many as two or three could stretch the
    system. This is the media LIE that they keep pushing and using FEAR to get you to inject yourself
    with an EXPERIMENTAL phase III trial mRNA vaccine that we now know has already killed more people
    than whatever Covid A&D is. That fact is derived from the FDA and the VAERs system. THAT is why your healthcare workers will NOT get the vaccine. IT IS MURDERING PEOPLE and because they are on the frontline NOT the media, they understand this. They have seen and reported skyrocketing heart attacks, strokes, aneurysms, blood clotting that is from the vaccine. Canada’s health care workers are banding together to form groups and hire lawyers to bring litigation against all involved. I warn Canadians that once the Democrats lose the mid-terms and presidential election, Americans will begin massive litigation against big pharma that will completely obliterate them. The estimate of vaccine deaths right now in the US is well over half a million. Hey, but don’t believe me. Don’t believe scientists, doctors, nurses, paramedics, undertakers or specialists in virology and vaccines, trust the corporate paid off media. DO NOT VACCINATE YOUR KIDS. DO NOT VACCINATE YOUR KIDS. If you were dumb enough to fall for this 40 billion dollar pharma get rich quick scheme that Trudeau and your premier have a stake in, don’t murder your kids over it. It is now proven kids are not threatened by this and even if they get sick they have almost 100% of getting better. Only those with immune issues are different. However Canadian hospital malpractice will see to it that anyone that gets into a hospital with Covid will die. Why? Ask the above people losing their jobs. They will tell you that the medications prescribed to Covid patients are helping to kill them. All for numbers, money and politics. There are now several known treatments that will even help those in high risk categories survive. The only problem is, the Canadian and Provincial governments are denying those treatments. They are responsible for MURDER. All to profit off a useless drug that does not even work. Ready for your fifth, sixth, seventh booster? Do be so stupid!
