Flu Shot: Should you be required to get the shot?

In the healthcare field our Nurses and Therapist are now being ask to get the flu shot every season. If you choose to decline the hospital may not hire you or require you to wear a mask the entire shift you work while employed at the hospital during the flu season.

Some healthcare workers refuse to get the flu shot and do not want to wear a mask either.

Do you agree? Do you get the flu shot?

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by viruses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. “The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year,” the CDC says.”
