Staffers of both the Health Care institutions and the Regional Administration said they were prepared to stand their ground in saying no to mandatory vaccinations..
Several Staffers locked out remained outside the worksites while a few others moved away after 1100 hrs.
A spokeswoman said that they will report for duty tomorrow and if locked out again they will mount a picketing demonstration in front of the Health care Institutions and the office of the RDC to further highlight their position that they should not be forced to take COVID 19 vaccines.
