The Guardian reports that "nursing and midwifery leaders" have called to delay the Covid vaccination for everyone working in a health setting in the UK to avoid people being dismissed from next month onwards (link). Instead, they ask for more time to convince people to get vaccinated.
It seems to me that hospitals/nursing homes/etc should have been working on convincing their vaccine-hestitant staff they want to keep for at least half a year now. If they have indeed done so, I'd find it hard to imagine that anyone who is still willing to lose their job over this is still redeemable. On the other hand, this might just be a massive leadership failure if no education/persuasion measures have been running all this time.
So I'm interested in how widespread targeted efforts by hospitals/nursing homes/etc to get their own staff vaccinated are, how well they've been working, and if applicable, if there is any reason to hope that holdouts are still reachable.
