Sioux Falls, South Dakota — Some employees of Sanford Health in Sioux Falls apparently aren’t too happy about the healthcare giant’s recent COVID-19 vaccination mandate for employees and made their feelings known on Friday.
Around noon Friday, approximately 100 Sanford employees were picketing in the rain against the requirement at the main hospital in central Sioux Falls.
Sanford has said that the deadline for all employees at Sanford facilities to be vaccinated is November 1st.
Sanford Health says there are exemptions to the vaccination requirement for those with religious or medical reasons.
Sanford has facilities throughout the KIWA listening area, including the Sanford Sheldon Medical Center and clinic locations throughout the area.
