Anti-vaccine mandate protest planned outside home of Garren Colvin

People line Thomas More Parkway by St. Elizabeth Edgewood Hospital in Edgewood, Ky on Tuesday, August 10, 2021 to protest St. Elizabeth’s newly announced COVID-19 vaccine requirement. The hospital and other medical centers have announced mandatory vaccination for all healthcare workers they employ.

Protesters plan to gather outside the home of a local hospital leader to protest a decision to make them get the COVID-19 vaccine. A Facebook event called "Stop the mandate" says the protest will be for "forced vax victims."

The protest will be held outside of the home of Garren Colvin, the president and chief executive officer of St. Elizabeth Healthcare in Villa Hills, Kentucky.

Protesters have gathered outside St. Elizabeth's Edgewood campus in recent weeks, as well as other Cincinnati area hospitals, against vaccination requirements. But the planned protest outside the home of Colvin represents an escalation in tactics that mirrors what's happening nationally in the debate over masks and vaccines against the novel coronavirus.

Anti-vaccine protest will be 'peaceful,' organizers say

"It’s personal, when anyone forces anything on your body," said a Facebook post from We The People Kentucky, the organization behind the protest outside of Colvin's home.
