Dozens of top Nuclear Scientists with highest security clearances are being fired after the vaccine mandate. It is to be noted that those scientists who may face termination are not new hiers or low level staffers, but the scientists who have served one of America’s most advanced and sensitive defense facilities for decades.
Last Friday was the deadline for the employees of Los Alamos National Lab to get vaccinated. However, many employees are protesting against this mandate and took to streets outside the lab.
Top nuclear engineers and scientists were among the employees protesting against the mandate. Judge had already denied their request to block the nuclear lab’s vaccine mandate from taking effect.
This mandate orders the nuclear lab’s employees to get vaccinated by first dose of COVID vaccine else face termination.
Concerning the lawsuit filed by the employees, The Hill wrote earlier that, “Workers at the New Mexico laboratory, which created the atomic bomb, filed a lawsuit claiming that exemptions to the mandate have been denied without proper justification.”

Dozens of scientists and workers of Mexico laboratory are pushing back against federal contractor Triad National Security LLC, which runs the lab under contract of the US Department of Energy.
Moreover, it is still not clear whether any of the employees or scientists have been fired after the deadline is passed. These employees are highly valuable for the lab and US national security.
Local media detailed Monday protests along the main road leading to the lab and outside the entrance as follows:
“Some 55 protestors, many of them carrying U.S. flags or signs, gathered on State Route 4 in White Rock at 6 a.m. to get the attention of Los Alamos National Laboratory commuters and others.
They were protesting LANL’s policy mandating COVID-19 vaccinations for all employees and the termination or placement in leave without pay status of an undisclosed number of employees by LANL last Friday.
As of Friday LANL officials said 96 percent of employees are fully-vaccinated and an additional 1 percent have had their first dose. Additional protests are being planned in other locations.”
It is to be noted that those scientists who may face termination are not new hiers or low level staffers, but the scientists who have served one of America’s most advanced and sensitive defense facilities for decades.
The Associated Press had detailed that, “The plaintiffs include scientists, nuclear engineers, project managers, research technicians and others who have some of the highest security clearances in the nation for the work they do.”
Further the report underscored they would be “difficult to replace” in the short term. “Some of the employees who are part of the lawsuit have worked for Los Alamos lab for decades, while others are newer hires who have relocated to New Mexico from other states and countries,” the report added.
“Thirty-four of them are named in the lawsuit and 80 have opted to remain anonymous, citing fears of retaliation.”
Meanwhile, about a third of Chicago Police Department, almost 3000 officers defied the illegal vaccine mandate as it enters its first full week in effect resulting in a stalemate.
Recently, reporter Allison Williams left ESPN over COVID-19 vaccine mandate, saying “I am so morally and ethically not aligned with this.”
A father of five daughters says, “I still curse myself for persuading my wife to take the vaccine. I thought it would save us from the virus but it killed her.”
He says after the death of his wife no one in the family and even the neighbors are willing to take the COVID vaccine.
However, a small but significant victory was achieved Wednesday when the French Senate rejacted a socialist senator’s proposal to make the COVID experimental vaccine mandatory for all citizens living in France. Non-compliance would trigger a fine of 135 euro (about $150 USD), and 1,500 euro for re-offenders.
