PHOENIX (AP) — Two unvaccinated Phoenix Children’s Hospital workers are suing after employees with a vaccine-mandate exemption were able to see each other’s email addresses.

Hospital administrators sent an email with safety protocols to unvaccinated workers but did not put the 368 recipients in the blind carbon copy field.

The workers allege the hospital was negligent with their private health information. Hospital officials tell KSAZ-TV that they've apologized to the affected workers and are making efforts to ensure similar mistakes aren't repeated in the future.
