There have been requirements for a generation that children be vaccinated before they enter school. Vaccinations are meant to not only protect the individual but also the community at large. Part of the charge we give to our governments is to protect the community.

Medical staff personnel are more likely to be exposed to the flu by virtue of their work because many of their patients are there to be treated for that illness. However, if the nurses don't care about preserving their own good health, then they should at least care about the patients for whom they are charged to provide care. I would think that their choice of career would indicate that this is a priority to them. They are in the position of exposing those among us who are already the most vulnerable to the worst effects of a flu illness...the seriously ill or injured and those who may be pregnant or have chronic conditions requiring ongoing medical care. It the nurses won't protect themselves, they should be required to protect the patients!

-Thomas JeffersonDid you know that the first vaccine ever, smallpox vaccine 150 years ago, sparked a
smallpox pandemic which killed hundreds of thousands? Likewise, did you know that
the infamous Spanish flu which killed over 20 million people worldwide, was sparked
by an American vaccination program and that the only countries unaffected were
those that opted OUT of the vaccination program?? Hmmm?

Excellent info. Hey, Silver Surfer, here's your toxic cocktail. Oh yeah, that's right, you have taken the shot for years and never had a problem. Well, check back when you're in your 60's and have have all these health problems and dieing of cancer and see if you're still singing the praises of vaccines. I'm sure you will be the first in line to have 666 stamped on your forehead.

We as nurses can use all the standard precautions available to us to protect our patients WITHOUT subjecting ourselves to a pushed through vaccine in which it's manufacters are not legally responsible for anything that may happen to you.....HELLO does anyone else see this as odd???They make the money by getting it out there and if you have a reaction to it...OH WELL It's your problem even though you were FORCED into getting it.Where are our rights? Our rights are to go ahead and loose your job over it, and in this GREAT economy we can all surely afford to that.
