On the eve of the deadline for the vaccination of hospital staff, Nicolas Best, director general of the CHU de Nîmes takes stock: ” Out of 7,300 people, we have, to October 15 , _50 people who will be suspended_, perhaps definitive for some, perhaps provisional for others who will ultimately agree to enter into a vaccination schedule. “About fifty staff in fact according to Nicolas Best and:” … iThey are not all in the care services, far from it. They are also in the logistics, administrative … “To compensate for the absence of these fifty people, the CHU says it has played on vacation, RTT or temporary work. It says it knows how to do it because every day the hospital has to deal with the absence, on average, more than a hundred employees for various reasons, illness or sick child for example.
The deadline of October 15 has passed, a date that Nicolas Best could let slip until October 31, the time to convince a few more hesitant, the situation will be different: “_It will be to replace maybe temporarily, I wish, maybe definitely_, a few dozen agents who did not wish, until the end, to integrate the vaccine schedule proposed since January 2021, with 6 billion doses injected therefore a lot of hindsight, and who maintained their positions until the end. “50 unvaccinated CHU staff out of the 7,300 in total, this figure is in line with the national average estimated by Olivier Véran, Minister of Health, received Wednesday, October 13, 2021 by our colleagues from France Info:” Around 15,000 caregivers, are not vaccinated against Covid-19, he said. We were at 0.9% of staff who were not vaccinated and who were suspended or suspendable, we have now dropped to 0.6%. Those who really choose to quit in order not to be vaccinated become the exception “.
