Episode 3: Ouchy, That Hurt!

On this episode of the Standard of Care Podcast, Nick and Samantha roll up their sleeves and discuss the legal impacts of the new COVID-19 vaccine on the EMS workforce. Can an employer mandate that employees receive the vaccine? What is the impact on medical accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and religious accommodations under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Are employees potentially covered by workers’ compensation if the vaccine causes injuries? Will advances in science change the way that laws are applied? Please like, comment, and subscribe!
