According to the Mayo Clinic, 1% of its staff were fired for failing to adhere to the clinic's mandatory Covid-19 vaccination program.

In an email to CNN, the health system stated that "the requirements of the patient come first."

Mayo Clinic said in a statement that "now is a time when the evidence supporting the efficacy and safety of COVID-19 vaccines must be firmly supported to help preserve the health and safety of our patients, workers, visitors, and communities."

According to its website, the Mayo Clinic employs 73,000 people.



If you're taking the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, complying with the program includes getting at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine and not being overdue for a second dosage. According to the announcement, nearly 99 percent of staff at all Mayo Clinic facilities met the program's Jan. 3 deadline.

"While Mayo Clinic is devastated by the loss of valuable colleagues, we must take all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our patients, employees, visitors, and communities." Individuals who have been discharged from employment may apply and return to Mayo Clinic for future job openings if they choose to get vaccinated at a later date, according to the statement.

According to its website, the Mayo Clinic includes campuses in Rochester, Minnesota, Scottsdale and Phoenix, Arizona, and Jacksonville, Florida, as well as dozens of other locations across the country.
