One St. Joseph’s employee of the 122 suspended for not being vaccinated has chosen to get it and come back to work.
Shari Chapman has been working in the healthcare field since 2005 and has held various positions, but the reality of her situation was that she needed the income for her three teenage boys.
Phillip Falcone, St. Joe’s chief medical officer, is happy to welcome anyone back that decided to get the vaccine after being suspended.
Chapin is happy to be returning to work but felt forced to get the vaccine and like her rights were being taken away.
St. Joseph’s now has 119 suspended workers who have until Oct. 8 to get the vaccine before being severed from the company.
Anyone choosing to get it within a year can come back and not lose their tenure.
