The vaccination obligation for the staff of health care establishments raises many concerns in the Gers, and that whatever the side of the barrier. “I am not in favor of the obligation, confides a director of nursing homes. In nursing homes, we will be forced to sideline the staff we need!” Many establishments are already having difficulty finding staff. Here caregivers, here an accountant. “We talked a lot, but it wasn’t enough.” At Mirande hospital, 10 staff are said to be suspended, causing great difficulties in operating the services. According to the management of the Auch hospital “the human resources department has collected more than 87% of certificates today and this figure continues to evolve in real time, hour after hour”.
At the CGT Santé, we are struggling. “We are campaigning for vaccination, but against the health pass, and it is difficult to get the message across, explains Christophe Bukovec. It is very difficult to obtain precise figures. The absence of unvaccinated people will increase the burden of those who will be present. ” It is also difficult to get the union message across. “People reason according to personal choices, and not socio-professional. But we will lose staff. And that will have direct consequences.”
