I worked in the GOM from 2008 until getting layed off in 2017. I ran crew boats for a few years, and then moved onto work boats, upgrading to a 1600 Ton Master of Oceans. I’ve been doing ok on land since then, but I’d love to get back to an equal time schedule if companies are hiring and the money is good again.
I may have an issue with medical mandates. I had a severe vaccine reaction years ago, and I’ve avoided them since, under direction from my doctor. I’m healthy, I don’t take any pharmaceuticals, and I don’t want to submit to injections. I don’t fault anybody else—its just my personal choice. I’m pro-choice. I’ve already had the virus, too, about two months ago. I was sick for a few days and got over it.
So, does anybody know if companies are mandating these injections? If so, do you know if they will take a medical exemption?
Thanks for any input.
