A Houston nurse who was fired for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine said that she contracted the virus last year and therefore, didn’t need to get vaccinated.

Houston Methodist hospital confirmed to The Epoch Times that more than 150 employees were either terminated or resigned after a judge earlier this month dismissed their lawsuit against the company over its mandatory COVID-19 vaccine requirement.

“I had COVID last summer, I don’t need that vaccine, and Methodist did not care about that, that was not an option at all,” said Jennifer Bridges, the lead lawsuit plaintiff and a registered nurse, in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday night.

Bridges, who confirmed to the Epoch Times Wednesday that she was fired by the company, said in the Fox interview that her dismissal is a betrayal of trust.

“We worked so hard last year,” Bridges said. “I mean, we were there through thick and thin when we had no help… it was horrible. And these people that are putting forth these rules right now for us and kicking us to the curb, they weren’t there. They weren’t even in the building to be seen for months. They were staying at home while we were doing all the work.”

Later in the interview, the nurse said she’s not sure why the hospital mandated vaccination to work there.

“I do not know exactly why they’re doing this,” Bridges said. “I can only assume it could be for a power [grab] or [they’re] money hungry right now, but they need to follow the proper science because we do not need to be vaccinated if we had COVID.”

In response to Bridges’ interview, a spokesperson for Houston Methodist described her comments as false.

“That is absolutely untrue. Our leaders have supported our employees every step of the way. We greatly appreciate what all of our dedicated employees have done for our patients and our leaders have been by their side since the beginning,” a spokesperson told The Epoch Times on Thursday.

And Woodfill, who appeared alongside her during the segment, stated that he believes the hospital’s vaccine requirement is “completely inconsistent” with federal law and regulations.
