By this same argument you couldn’t fire someone for taking crack or refusing to wear clothes.
You can require a worker to wear clothes while on duty.
However, when the worker is off duty they are free undress in their home.
Since a vaccine can't be removed from the body, you're forcing the worker to adhere to company policy 24/7 for the rest of their lives.
Sorry, but employer authority has a limit, they don't have control and ownership of the worker's body.

by allowing potential disease carriers
A nurse, (or any other person for that matter) who is healthy, unvaccinated and uninfected is not dangerous to you or anybody else.
By assuming people are infected when they're not you're being prejudiced and essentially engaging in profiling.

De Santis is actually helping workers because the mandates force them to quit.

Mandates on workers that apply outside their duty hours are an intrusion on worker’s rights.
You can mandate a tie, but they worker can remove it when their off duty.
Since a vaccine can be removed, the worker is being forced into on duty compliance for the rest of their lives.

A sensible move, Denmark has already banned these internal passports altogether, and other countries are following suit.
What they found was that when there's a group of 5 friends, usually around 2 will be unvaccinated. Since they still want to hang out together as buddies, the restrictions end up affecting all of them, and they shun places where passports are required.
This is especially the case for families. If just 1 member is unvaccinated, the entire family shuns the venue that requires a passport because they want to eat together and be together.

Their shots came from uncontaminated vials that were produced on the same line.
How can you confirm that?
It's possible that either the contamination was too small to have been noticed by the human eye or that the lots didn't even undergo proper visual inspection in the first place.

Yep with over 70% of the population vaccinated. Did you miss that one ?
Nope, I read it as close to 30% unvaccinated and no restrictions in place.
No QR codes, no segregated seating, no mandates, no calling each other names.

The supply shortage is contrived. One truckload of vaccines could supply a whole country.
It's all a marketing technique to make it seem like you're lucky and special to get one.
Just like a "limited edition" t-shirt.
Get it while supplies last.

With such passports, they would walk around freely and spread the virus to those who have not been fully vaccinated.
And each other.
A fully vaccinated person can still infect another fully vaccinated person and send them to the hospital.

You cannot unvaccinate a vaccinated person. Over time the number of unvaccinated people can only decrease...
True, but once the definition of "fully vaccinated" becomes 3 shots the number of people not fully vaccinated will increase.
As boosters keep getting added, the ratio of non-fully vaccinated people will keep going up as more and more will simply get tired of trying to keep up.

There are never 100% guarantees on anything.
However my commitment to my family, community and society is 100%.
Thus I will refrain from taking Pfizer's product which can not guarantee 100% safety.

Can you provide a 100% guarantee that I won't end up burdening my family and the medical system with a side effect if I take Pfizer's product?

Thank you all for your opinions.
However it's selfish for me to take the vaccine just so I could get a few gift cards and access to bars, concerts and sports venues.
That would be nice, but I have a duty to my loved ones, community and society as a whole.
I can not risk burdening them with a debilitating side effect just so I can get a pass to enter a bar or night club.
My obligations to society come first so my personal decision is to not risk any side effects.

Please, people, try to understand the dangers of not being vaccinated
What about the dangers of vaccine side effects.
I have a responsibility to my family, to my work, to my community and even to pay taxes.
If I suffer a serious side effect, I become a burden to my family, community and the medical system.
And instead of paying taxes, I'll become a drain on the system.
My decision is not to become a burden on society so I wish to avoid the risk of vaccine side effects.
