There is no evidence that mandatory vaccines impact pt exposure.
If hospitals were serious about protecting pts from infection then they would have better housekeeping and stop spreading MRSA.
There is no data that shows pts were infected by the staff
Doctors are not required to get vaccinated yet they see pts in the hospital going room to room and unit to unit.
Visitors are not required.
The vaccine is not that effective because there are so many virusese

It's all about big pharma money...ytrying to require everyone to be exposed to mercury and other toxins, risk Guillaine barre syndrome

Support choice...
