Doctor Alexander Scott caves on mandate

Wow. Folded like a cheap suit. Doctor Nicole Alexander Scott seems to have folded under the pressure of the October 1, mandate set up by her office for healthcare workers to get the vaccine or be fired. As much as some of the blame could be placed on Governor McKee, Scott is director of the Rhode Island department of Health, she set the deadline and he defers to her on health. This is a huge win for healthcare workers who were told they would be fired if not vaccinated by October 1. Pressure had been building towards Governor McKee with protesters demanding he lift the mandate. General Treasurer Seth Magaziner wasted no time going after the decision to not enforce the mandate.
