Washington Post: Thousands of D.C. health care workers remain unvaccinated amid flurry of religious exemption requests

Washington Post: Thousands of D.C. health care workers remain unvaccinated amid flurry of religious exemption requests. “The overwhelming majority of government and health-care workers in the District who have reported their vaccination status say they’ve gotten at least one shot, but District lawmakers have homed in on the city’s Fire & EMS Department, whose employees are among a relatively small group of government workers that are subject to the stricter requirements for health-care workers. About 267 of the department’s more than 2,000 employees have sought exemption from getting the vaccine, according to city officials — with the vast majority of them citing their religion. The 20 requests that have been reviewed so far were denied.”
