A small number of health care workers in local hospitals and nursing homes have refused to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and have resigned their positions or faced suspension and termination. 

The state and federal mandates for healthcare and nursing home employees to be fully vaccinated helped push the number of vaccinated workers from 70% in June to the current high 90s. At Hartford HealthCare and elsewhere, there are still some holdouts, despite health care facilities implementing their own universal vaccination policies.
