"It is happening in nursing homes and, to a lesser degree, in hospitals with employees expressing what experts say are unfounded fears of side effects from vaccines that were developed at record speed," AP reports. "Some places are seeing as much as 80% of the staff holding back."

Twila Brase, a registered nurse and president/co-founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom, isn't surprised.

"I think there has been enough information out there where health care workers who are in the field are well aware of the lack of information [and] the lack of research that has happened into what the long-term effects can be," Brase tells One News Now. "So, they are weighing their risks and they're making a decision not to be vaccinated."

Alarmed by the phenomenon, some administrators have dangled everything from free breakfasts at Waffle House to a raffle for a car to get employees to roll up their sleeves. According to AP, some states have threatened to let other people cut ahead of health care workers in the line for shots.

Brase, Twila (CCHF)Brase shares that she's heard from health care professionals and some of those "other people" from other industries all wanting more information and inquiring about their rights.

"I would tell people they can go to the National Vaccine Information Center," says Brase. "I would also say 'google Pfizer or Moderna or COVID-19 vaccine' and then they should google the word alongside it 'injury death reaction' because people have reacted negatively to the vaccination."

One News Now will continue to cover the vaccine issue from medical professionals for and against the vaccines.
