50 hospital employees fired after refusing to get flu shot UPDATED

Recommended Posts

About 50 employees of Essentia Health, an upper-Midwest hospital chain, didn’t go to work Wednesday.

But it wasn’t an early start to the Thanksgiving holiday for them. They were fired for refusing to get flu shots.

It’s part of a growing trend for hospitals to require flu shots for workers. Public health experts say it shouldn’t be surprising.

“It’s a patient safety issue,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University and a spokesman for the Infectious Diseases Society of America. “It’s so that we do not give flu to our patients.”

The last people that require any vaccination is the people that interact with a bunch of people daily. Any agents encountered by those workers, would be hindered easily by a healthy human. It's simple biology. You might get sick, but your body will overcome. How toxins are necessary to do this simple feat is subversive in nature.  Simple biology, which one hopes is still taught.

It's not

My teachers really like the blue-koolaid, and too few students actually think in lectures.

Actually the flu this year has been seen in many facilities since last flu season started...so logically all employees should be taking the vaccine several times throughout the year, and they should be taking different strains of the vaccine because we all know there is more then one type of flu and the common vaccine only is designed for the three most probable strains that are supposedly on the path to outbreak.  On that same note since hospital employees are in contact with all sort of strange diseases every day seems like hospital policy and procedure should have the "Mystery Vaccine" of the day to be taken before you clock in.
