Some IU Health employees planning vaccine mandate protest

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (ADAMS) – No one is sure just how many IU Health employees will show up at this weekend’s vaccine mandate protest, but it could be in the thousands.

More than 3,000 have joined a Facebook group for IU Health workers who don’t want to be forced to get the coronavirus vaccine. Organizer Traci Staley says there are a lot of people who work in healthcare who have questions about the vaccine.

IU Health says everyone who works for the hospital, including non-healthcare staff, must be vaccinated by September 1st in order to keep their job. The protest is planned for this Saturday, along the canal near IU Fairbanks Hall.
