Not only is the hospital I work for mandating flu vaccine they are also requiring you to sign a consent form releasing them of any liability for adverse effects. They are requiring 100 percent compliance by Dec. 1st. I am refusing not because of the vaccine so much as I fundamentally believe that I alone have the last word when it comes to what I put in my body. It goes far beyond that health insurance is provided at a 200.00 a month discount to those that participate in a "wellness program" that controls every aspect of your life outside the workplace. Don't participate pay nearly 400.00 per month for health insurance coverage, affordable care act my @!!. Anyway, could start a forum discussion just on employer intrusion into my personal liberties however will save that rant for a different time.

Thankfully it is not mandatory at the store I work at but they sure do try their hardest to get me to get the shot even had a district manager say that when he ran a store if the person didn't get a flu shot then they could never call off for anything.

wont quit, however, I will force them to exhaust their corrective action processes in order to terminate me. It does stink I have received excellent performance reviews consistently, I am considered a mentor and educator within my department, I take my work seriously. I refuse to let my employer dictate my personal health choices. I have limited patient contact and if I am sick I have accumulated paid time off so as not to spread my illness to others. Damn Nazis.....I digress.

Exactly. Previously, the flu would only be in pockets of the population. Now, thanks to the flu shot being pushed in every tiny hamlet and town, the flu virus is being shed everywhere by vaccinated people, spreading it.

There is some bad stuff in these vaccines. Apart from the normal ingredients they have nano technology. We will be forced to take them and they will 100% own us.
LOUISVILLE, Ky.-- If you work at Norton Healthcare and want to keep your job, you'll be getting your flu shot this year. Norton says for the first time, it will mandate the shots for all employees. The only exclusion will be workers who have a medical reason to decline. Norton says requiring the shots for its 12,000 employees will help protect its patients. The CDC has been encouraging mandated shots for health care workers for years. Norton is the first health care system in the area and among the first 16% in the nation to adopt the mandatory policy. Some workers aren't happy about the change, but Norton says it's the "right thing to do" to protect the health of patients and employees. Workers will have until December 10th to get their flu shots. We're told employees who don't comply will be terminated. Independent doctors will lose their privileges at Norton until they comply.
