Hadassah hospitals to ban workers who weren’t vaccinated

The Hadassah hospitals in Ein Kerem and Mount Scopus inform their staff that as of Thursday, those who hadn’t received doses of coronavirus vaccine won’t be allowed to continue to work.

The Jerusalem-based hospitals will put those staff members on vacation leave.

The order, which comes amid a huge spike in cases, doesn’t apply to those who recovered from the disease or are participating in the Israeli vaccine trial.
