that's some crazy BS you're peddling there. i used to refuse the vaccine. then i got the flu. sickest i've ever been in my life. that was about a decade ago. haven't had the flu since then as i always get the vaccine. coincidence? you'll never get me (or my doctor) to believe it. so when it comes to my health i'm going with my doctor who's known me fro over 50 years. you stick with naturalnews.com umkay? good luck with that.

My Sister and Mom got deadly sick after getting their flu shot. I'm not taking any chances. Just my opinion!

Health care workers are being forced by Gov. Cuomo to get this shot. If we don't, we have to wear a mask for 8-12hrs. Who protects us from patients who come in knowing they have MRSA, VRE, Hep C and HIV and don't tell us??? It is way too early to tell what strain of flu is going to be most prevalent. I have never gotten the flu, but had to have this stupid shot against my better judgement!!

As a health care worker, you should know better than to complain about the flu shot. You should be doing everything you can, including getting a shot, to prevent the spread of this debilitating and deadly sickness. You don't know if you or your patients are carrying the flu virus until the symptoms physically manifest. Even before that happens, you are contagious. This is not the same as a patient knowing they have a contagious disease and not telling you. You say you have never had the flu - could it be because you had your flu shot????

you not "forced" to do anything since the alternative put forth by your employer (not the governor) is simply to wear a mask. it is your right to be ignorant but i WILL exercise MY rights too should i or a family member become hospitalized for any reason. i will demand that you or anyone who refuses the flu shot be denied access to my room. imho you're a disgrace to your profession.

It is not the Governor, it is the Department of Health that is mandating this.
