Around 1,500 Nursing Home Workers are Currently Unvaccinated Against COVID-19, According to the Interim President of the New Brunswick Association of Nursing Homes

 

 

The New Brunswick Association of Nursing Homes is raising the alarm over the number of nursing home workers in the province who have still not been vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.

 

According to Michael Keaton, the interim president of The New Brunswick Association of Nursing Homes, there are currently around 1,500 unvaccinated workers.

 

He says the association is now looking into a vaccine policy for employees.

 

Keaton says the fact that 18.6% of employees have not been vaccinated, or are refusing to be vaccinated, is “incredibly troubling.”
