More than 200 workers at two of New Jersey’s largest health care networks either have been fired or have quit for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19 now that a deadline to comply has passed, hospital executives said Monday.

RWJBarnabas fired 118 employees, less than 1% of its 35,000 workforce across the network’s 15 hospitals, 33 outpatient centers and dozens of other facilities.

Meanwhile, 120 staffers at Virtua Health “elected to discontinue their employment” at the provider’s five South Jersey hospitals and other centers. That represents about 1% of employees.

“While that is their right, we had hoped they would have chosen to receive this very safe and effective vaccine in order to protect themselves, our patients and others,” said Dennis W. Pullin, Virtua Health’s president and CEO.
