You SHOULD be ashamed to be a liberal. First, the 1st Amendment guarantees one not be forced to act against their religious beliefs. Second, the flu has Very little relevance in a hospital. FAR more people are harmed by inappropriate treatments and staph infections due to idiotic hospital policies. The "swine flu" is just another hoax (simply blown way out of proportion), like MMGW (an obvious fraud).
If you got a problem do not work there. If getting a shot is part of the job requirement, tough shit. Just like the pharmacist who has moral objects to giving out birth control. If it is in the job requirement, tough shit. Someone will be happy to take the job.

YOU need to take science classes. "Swine flu", while it was being hawked as SUPER DEADLY! OOOOOOOOOOOO!, caused FAR fewer deaths than the regular strains of flu. You are too stupid to look at reality w/o spin.
Vaccines are relevant for serious, debilitating diseases. The flu is not one, unless you are very old and\or quite infirm.
Grow up, Stalin.
I wasn't really talking about the flu viruses. I was talking about vaccines in general. HAHA! Stalin! That funny. I've never been called that before. The swine flu did indeed kill more people who acquired the virus compared to the "regular" virus. The flu kills plenty of people every year. The problem with the swine type, was the people dying from it where the people who handled the "regular" virus better. I don't think any healthcare professional would argue that the WHO responsive turned out to be more than needed. However better safe than sorry.

Harsh. You hope I get a super painful very likely deadly disease because I think people who are there to take care of sick people should do everything possible to not spread more disease. If you are not willing to take measures to prevent the spread of illness, work in another field. Maybe construction? Just please do not have children and leave them un-vaccinated so they can spread your illnesses to the rest of society.

A known terrorist support group, CAIR, advocates just that!
Another witch hunt, just like hunting for gays in the military.
