Annually offer onsite influenza vaccinations, if available, to all hospital employees at no cost to the employee. Each general acute care hospital shall require its employees to be vaccinated, or if the employee elects not to be vaccinated, to declare in writing that he or she has declined the vaccination.
Thimerosal, a chemical used to prevent contamination of multi-dose vials of vaccines, contains mercury. California’s Mercury-Free Act took effect on July 1, 2006. The Act prohibits administering mercury-containing vaccines to pregnant women or to children younger than three years of age. To meet the “mercury-free” standards in this law, most vaccines may not have more than 0.5 micrograms of mercury per 0.5 milliliters of vaccine dose. The mercury limit for influenza vaccine is 1 microgram per 0.5 milliliters. All routine childhood vaccines are available in formulations that meet the Mercury-Free Act.
“California has been preparing for the possibility of a flu pandemic for years so we stand ready to combat what could be a very severe flu season with the threat of H1N1,” said Governor Schwarzenegger.

So, you wouldn't take it but damn it to hell if you're a health care worker that you should just bow down and comply?
Would you feel better if the nursing staff wore masks and gloves?
You do realize that this vaccine may do NOTHING to prevent that individual OR YOU from contracting swine flu. What will be your argument then?
Hypocrisy, hypocrisy, hypocrisy.

I am not new to this forum, but admittedly I do read much more than I post. I am the mother of a 4 year old with Asperger's Syndrome, and vaccines are what caused it. I know that and my fully licensed, experienced, and dedicated medical doctor knows it too. But there is no legal recourse for such a case as mine or anyone else's who happen to have received neurological, physical, and mental damage from any vaccination. The corporations have chosen to protect themselves above anyone and everyone else.
My family and I work on a daily basis to undo the damage that has already been caused by these vaccines, and I will not risk my child again in order to receive another set of shots. We did not finish the regular childhood vaccination schedule, and I am so grateful that we didn't. This flu is not the friggin' Black Plague. Why are they using coercion to get it through to the populace so quickly now? Anyone I have ever heard of that has gotten it has either received the shot themselves or has been around someone who received the shot. Why this virus, since it's already been tested and found to be a dud, so to speak? They (the state legislators, and hospital adminstration) are perpetuating this situation into a full-blown crisis themselves by using such tactics. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they rehire most of the medical staff back two weeks after the deadline, since they will be feeling the pain by then, from patients needing medical care and not receiving it, and soaring unemployment rates and student loans biting them in the butt from behind. What will they do then? Does anyone happen to know what the contingency plans are if this turns into a medical fiasco crisis, if any?
Again, in my opinion, no shot is worth my daughter's health. We have survived the flu before just from sending my 6 yo to public school last year and we will survive it again.

"I kept up with my childhood flu vaccines and I don't have Aspergers. :/ "
Well, I walked across a road, without paying much attention, and wasn't knocked down and killed.
I petted a strangers' Pit-Bull Terrier, and wasn't bitten.
I drank way too much alcohol in my teens, but I don't have a criminal record, and I'm not an alcoholic.
I swam in a flood swollen river, and didn't drown.
I was attacked by 8 guys, and kicked in the head several times, by one of them who had metal plates on his shoes, and I didn't suffer any permanent damage.
Each of the above statements is completely and absolutely true.
But they do NOT mean that jay-walking, petting strange dogs, getting smashed, skinny dipping or being kicked in the head is either a safe or sensible thing to do.
Neither do any of them mean that flu vaccines are safe.
Please forgive the minor rant, but I just cannot bear the "I tried it and I'm alright, so it must be safe" mentality.

Although I do not know much on the subject.
Perhaps you could explain to me how you came to the conclusion that the vaccine is to blame for your child's Autism...
A Preliminary Injunction to stop mandatory vaccinations has been issued in the United States District Court of New Jersey. This comes after a federal lawsuit opposing forced vaccines was filed in that court by Tim Vawter, pro se attorney, on July 31st with the federal government as defendant.
The Court, having heard the Motion for Preliminary Injunction and read the papers in its support, states in the Preliminary Injunction that it appears the federal government has engaged in some amount of negligence with regards to failure to properly investigate the safety of the flu vaccines scheduled for use in late 2009-2010, and the evidence submitted does warrant a more thorough investigation into the safety of the flu vaccines. The Court ordered that the government shall be forbidden from forcing any person to be required to take any influenza vaccination against that person’s free will and free choice. The government will not allow any state or local government, or any party, to force any person to be required to take any influenza vaccination against that person’s free will and free choice.
