Dr Michelle Fiscus has worked in the healthcare industry for nearly 20 years, most recently as a senior vaccine official for Tennessee. Until the day she was fired, she had excellent job performance reviews.
And then one day, she sent a reminder that in Tennessee, children over 14 can choose to be vaccinated without asking their parents first.
And she lost her job.
Now Fiscus, whose fate was seized as an example of the costs of defending vaccines in a deeply red state, strongly supports Joe BidenThe recent defense of vaccine warrants by, something that has sparked howls of outrage from many conservatives, but which Fiscus says will save lives.
Fiscus, who was fired in July, said the warrants made a lot of sense and that there is a long precedent for creating rules to protect both our health and the health of those around us. In fact, vaccination mandates have been around since the founding of the United States.
“I think it’s absolutely the right thing to do,” Fiscus told The Guardian. It was “the right decision, and it will be on the right side of history.”
