While many medical professionals are having to choose between getting a COVID shot or losing their job, one attorney says there are legal remedies.

Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) recently told the "Sandy Rios in the Morning" radio program that they can file for a medical exemption.

"If they've already had COVID, for example, they can make a claim for that," the attorney continued. "We have over 120 studies referenced on our website that they can reference that shows those who have had COVID have a stronger and broader immunity than those who've been vaccinated."

Another option is to seek a religious exemption.

"For that we have laid out on our website exactly what they need to do," Dacus shared. "They should not file a pre-printed statement of faith that they sign and just give their boss, because that doesn't prove their sincerity. And that's what they have to prove -- their sincerity."

Dacus suggested people write out their testimony, why their beliefs compel them not to have the vaccine, and to share that they have prayed and sought the Lord on the issue.

"Religious experience plus scripture is very powerful for them to lay claim to their rights under TITLE VII of the Civil Rights Act to be reasonably accommodated," Dacus detailed.

He added, though, that they should seek to be "very cooperative with a reasonable accommodation" of wearing a mask or being tested in order to keep their job. He said people who do that are generally successful, but he expects the many PJI offices across the nation are going to be "very busy" with defending religious freedom in the coming days.
