Hundreds gather outside of Tucson Medical Center protesting mandatory vaccines



TUCSON, Arizona (KOLD News 13) – Hundreds of people gathered outside Tucson Medical Center near Craycroft and Grant on Saturday to protest mandatory vaccines. TMC and Banner Health have announced that their employees will need to be vaccinated.

“Like or dislike the vaccine, anything experimental should have consent from the people who receive it,” Mark Lytle said at the protest.

He says he’s a medic, and if the vaccine goes beyond his current emergency approval, he still doesn’t plan on getting it.

“I’m not going to get the vaccine. Our boys have been treated, many of us in public safety, with ivermectin. We were recovered within 24 to 48 hours, ”he said.

According to the FDA, ivermectin is approved for the treatment of some parasitic worms in humans, but it is not approved for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19 in humans.

“Do you see a pandemic? A pandemic for me would be that thousands of people would drop dead every day, “said a protester who asked not to be named.

Johns Hopkins reports that more than 11,000 people died of COVID worldwide on Friday. The latest data from the CDC shows the US recorded 691 deaths on Thursday. However, protesters say they think the vaccine is dangerous.

“It doesn’t protect people. The Spike Protein is designed to replicate and give you COVID. It makes people sick, ”he said.

According to the CDC, millions of people in the United States have received vaccines that have been subjected to the most rigorous security surveillance in the country’s history. TMC sent KOLD News 13 an explanation why their employees need to be vaccinated.

“We have seen an alarming increase in COVID cases across southern Arizona, and as a community hospital, our job is to keep staff and patients safe. We know vaccines work, so we stand behind our decision to vaccinate hospital staff. Of those currently hospitalized with COVID, 99% are unvaccinated. We allow some exceptions and postponements. Those who want to wait for the FDA to fully approve the vaccine can sign up for a postponement, as can those who are pregnant. A few exceptions are made for religious and health reasons. Those who are allowed postponements or exceptions must be tested twice a week. “

Pima County’s Board of Directors will meet next week to discuss vaccine requirements for the county’s health workers.
