NOW: Health care workers march to state Capitol protesting vaccine mandates

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Dozens of health care workers marched to the state Capitol to protest vaccine requirements by their employers Tuesday, Aug. 10.

A lot of the people that showed up said it's about having a choice, and they don't want to be forced to get the vaccine.

But health care providers argue employees need to protect their patients.

"Our message we're getting across today is freedom of choice and just having the right to say what gets injected into our bodies," said health care worker Angela Amundson.

Health experts say vaccines are safe, effective and prevent serious illness and death from COVID-19.
