Up to 20% of Employees Unable to Work After Receiving Boosters
20% of employees who received the bivalent boosters to 'protect against the omicron variant' will be unable to work after, according to new study
The number one reason why employers mandate medical treatments, diagnostic tests, and/or healthcare exams is to decrease the rate of employee absenteeism due to being ill. In other words, employers want to prevent the risk of their employees calling in sick because it costs the employer money.
Beginning in 2021 and up until today, some employers (and universities) mandate vaccines and boosters to ‘allegedly’ protect their staff or students from becoming ill. Unfortunately for employers, especially hospitals and medical centers, a new pre-print study posted to medRxiv* demonstrates that 20% of employees will be unable to work after getting the bivalent Omicron booster and 10% of employees will be unable to work after receiving the standard COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) booster.
Let’s break down the data presented in the study of 76 healthcare workers entitled, Bivalent BNT162b2mRNA original/Omicron BA.4-5 Booster Vaccination: Adverse Reactions and Inability to Work Compared to the Monovalent COVID-19 Booster.
Nearly 9 out of 10 healthcare workers (85%) who received the bivalent booster against Omicron experienced a harmful effect. AND 5 out of 10 (51%) healthcare workers who received the original SARS-CoV-2 booster experience a harmful effect (p<0.01).
Specifically, the rates of body aches, headaches, tiredness, fever, chills, and local reactions were significantly higher in healthcare workers who received the bivalent Omicron vaccine. The incidence of body aches was more than double in the group of healthcare workers who received the bivalent Omicron booster. More than 40% suffered from aches and pains after receiving their bivalent booster and more than 20% the of standard booster group suffered aches and pains after the shot (p<0.05).
The following numbers don’t bode well for work productivity or legal justification for vaccine mandates, despite unconstitutional HHS guidance.
