Medical residents and nurses from Stanford Medical Center held a protest on Friday following the hospital choosing to vaccinate some staff members who don’t interact with coronavirus patients over other frontline workers.
Video footage from the San Francisco Chronicle showed hospital workers gathering in a common area of Stanford Medical Center with signs as they shouted chants.
“How many residents? Seven,” the workers chanted through the hospital. Seven represented the number of medical residents who have so far received a coronavirus vaccine in the hospital out of the 1,349 employed.
The hospital was accused of prioritising administrators over some medical residents and nurses in first wave of vaccine distribution
