This is the third in a series of interviews with people who are losing their jobs in the medical profession because they have declined to take the required Covid-19 vaccination. The names of these healthcare workers are being kept confidential because they fear reprisal.
Southcentral Foundation has grown over the years, and Jessie has been a big part of that. He works in an area of the hospital that relates to information, and has no contact with patients. During the early months of the pandemic, he was able to work from home, and he believes he could still perform 100 percent of his job from home.
But he will lose his job on Oct. 15 because he is not going to be vaccinated for Covid-19. Jessie asked for a religious exemption and was immediately denied. He is being fired.
Southcentral Foundation serves the Alaska Native population. Its mission statement is, “Working together with the Native Community to achieve wellness through health and related services.” The organization has 297 vacant positions advertised on its website. Jessie’s is now one of them, even though he has 20 more days.
While he’s not a doctor or nurse, Jessie has studied it enough to believe the vaccine is leading to more variants, and more rapid variants. The vaccine has just one strategy for defeating the virus, and that makes it easier for the virus to come up with its own mutation to evade the spike protein, he said.
Plus, Jessie thinks that if the government is mandating that people be injected with something, then the country is on a dangerous path to tyranny.
Mostly, he thinks that the push for everyone to be vaccinated has become a religion, and it’s in conflict with his own belief system.
On Oct. 15, Jessie will be placed on leave for three days, and if he still doesn’t comply, he was told it would be considered a voluntary resignation. He disputes that it’s voluntary.
Jessie is frustrated with Gov. Mike Dunleavy for using FEMA resources to replace nurses and other medical workers who are being fired. It doesn’t make sense to him, and he and his whole family voted for Dunleavy, but now he’s having his doubts.
“In every instance we support tyranny, we put another nail in the coffin of the United States of America. If these hospitals truly could not get by, they would not be firing workers. They claim it is health and safety but it is dogma. If I was talking to the governor, I would have a lot to say.”
Jessie knows of single mothers who are losing their nursing jobs and their homes over the vaccine mandate.
“It is a satanic attack on mankind. Eventually, it is going to be about a vaccine passport. We won’t be able to buy or sell without vaccine passport. Then there will be counterfeit vaccine passports, and I worry it will lead to implanting something in our bodies. Whenever the government tells you you have to receive something in your body to engage in commerce, that is where I am going to be drawing the line,” he said.
Jessie probably will land on his feet. People with his skills are in high demand and he is looking for a new job. It will be the Southcentral Foundation that suffers, he said, as well as all of its “customer-owners,” who he points out do not have to have the vaccine to receive services.
“I’ll find a job, and it will be one that pays me more money,” Jessie said.
