People ask Gov. Reynolds to remove vaccination requirements



Cedar Rapids, Iowa – Hundreds of people have signed a petition urging Governor Kim Reynolds to remove vaccination requirements.

On Saturday, groups gathered outside the governor’s home.

It comes at a time when all three main hospitals in Des Moines, as well as both major hospitals in Cedar Rapids, require staff to be vaccinated.

Kari Gates, a nurse, stated that she would prefer to be fired rather than receive the shot.

“We want medical freedom, body autonomy. Our patients always have the right to choose and the right to refuse. That’s how medicine has always been. And since COVID-19, that has all went out the window, and we want the right to choose just like our patients have,” said Gates.

Governor Reynolds issued an executive order earlier this year banning cities, counties, and schools from requiring masks.

In Iowa, she also banned vaccination passports.
