Governor mandate hurts medical care in county

September 2nd, 2021 by Ken

Governor Jay Inslee’s order that all state employees and health care workers in the state get  vaccinated against Covid, will have a significant impact on health care in Thurston County.

It’s estimated that as many as 25 percent of all firefighters and EMTs in the county have not gotten their shots.  If Inslee’s mandate holds, Medic One will lose a quarter of its medical staff.

The problem is of such significance that the Thurston County Emergency Management Council has written a letter to the governor requesting that he make some changes in his vaccination mandate.  Council chair Stand Moon and Vice Chair Lenny Greenstein have signed the letter.
