Indiana’s largest hospital system had to say goodbye to 125 staff members because they refused to comply with the COVID vaccinate mandate. On Sept. 16, Indiana University Health said it has “put the safety and well-being of patients and team members first” by requiring the vaccine.

Following a two-week unpaid suspension, 125 employees chose not to receive the vaccine and departed the organization.

According to Newsweek, the employees who refused the shot resigned.

IU Health suspended around 300 employees two weeks ago according to the Indianapolis Business Journal.
