Advocate fires 400+ workers who refused vaccines
Advocate Aurora Health, the largest hospital system in Illinois and Wisconsin, has fired more than 400 employees who refused to get vaccinated for COVID-19.
Almost half of the 440 recently terminated employees worked part time, the company said in a statement. The number is less than 1% of about 75,000 employees.
Advocate is not providing a breakdown for the positions among those fired -- nurses, doctors or other employees -- and a spokesman declined to provide additional comment.
