Steve Burton Fired From ‘General Hospital’ Over Vaccine Mandate

Actor Steve Burton reveals that he had been fired from tv show General Hospital over the show's vaccine mandate.

He was on the show for nearly 30 years.

"I wanted you to hear it from me personally," he said. "Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions, and both of those were denied. Which, you know, hurts. But this is also about personal freedom to me. I don't think anybody should lose their livelihood over this."

The actor hopes he can go back to the show at some point.

"But with that being said, I'll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital," he continued. "I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I'll always be grateful. And I believe that when one door closes, multiple doors open. That's always been my perspective. So I am excited to see what the future brings, and maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor. And if not, I'm going to take this amazing experience, move forward, and be forever grateful."
