Dozens in Omaha protest vaccine mandate

OMAHA, Neb. -- Dozens protest in Omaha over COVID-19 vaccine mandates. 

Hours after the FDA approved Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccination, more than 100 people gathered Monday afternoon along 42nd Street between Dodge and Farnam Streets to protest vaccine mandates. 

Drivers honked their horns in support as the crowd continued to grow along the two-block stretch. 

Earlier this month, eight Nebraska healthcare systems announced they would be requiring staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Those gathering Monday afternoon say they don't think that's fair. 

Medical officials believe the FDA approval will most likely lead to more healthcare providers and businesses requiring COVID vaccinations for their employees.
