Georgia Surgical Tech Jobless After Posting TikTok Video Comparing COVID Vaccine to Holocaust Tattoos

Hospital officials in Cobb County say a surgical tech is “no longer an employee” after she posted a video comparing the hospital’s vaccine mandate to the Holocaust.

Jessica Renzi was a surgical technologist with the Wellstar Healthcare System, according to her social media accounts, which she has since deleted.

Renzi posted a video to TikTok in which she showed off a hand-drawn “tattoo” with her vaccine lot number. The fake tattoo is reminiscent of tattoos given to prisoners at concentration camps during the Holocaust. The “numbers” actually spell out a vulgar phrase.

Renzi tagged the video #patriot and #prochoice and talked about “vaccine passports.” The video has gone viral and been viewed thousands of times.

Officials with the hospital system issued a statement saying she no longer works for them: “Jessica Renzi is no longer an employee of Wellstar Health System. At Wellstar, we stand strongly against anti-Semitism as well as comments or behavior of any kind that do not serve our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. We are dedicated to fostering an environment where all team members treat others with compassion and respect. Wellstar remains steadfast in our mission to enhance the health and wellbeing of every person we serve.”
