If you don't want a vaccine, that's your right. It's also you're right to work elsewhere.
I'll say this though... If my elderly mother were a patient where she got the flu by a medical employee that was on some little crusade against
vaccines? I'd insure she was well taken care of by the settlement on the law suit....and if she didn't survive the infection..I'd be retiring on
what I did to the medical facility and that employee as personally as the law could make it for them.
Really.. When working around sick people? Follow the policies or find work elsewhere. It seems a simple thing to me.
I'm sorry to say, that if your mom dies from getting the flu, she has a lot worse things going wrong in her co-morbidity. Unfortunately, Uhbama's
new healthcare plan will dictate what type of therapy she will receive.
Back on topic. If the employer states that you need to loose weight, will you now be forced to swallow tablets to do so? Or if you have asthma, will
they say you can't actuate your inhaler because it makes you jittery? The list goes on and on, and the slope gets steeper and steeper.
From the CDC www.cdc.gov...
"The 2012-2013 influenza vaccine is made from the following three viruses:
an A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus;
an A/Victoria/361/2011 (H3N2)-like virus;
a B/Wisconsin/1/2010-like virus (from the B/Yamagata lineage of viruses).
CDC has received reports of some people who were vaccinated against influenza becoming ill and testing positive for influenza...Unfortunately, some
people can get infected with an influenza virus that is included in the vaccine despite getting vaccinated." The flu does change and changes
"Antigenic shift is an abrupt, major change in the influenza A viruses, resulting in new hemagglutinin and/or new hemagglutinin and neuraminidase
proteins in influenza viruses that infect humans. Such a “shift” occurred in the spring of 2009, when a new H1N1 virus with a new combination of
genes emerged to infect people and quickly spread, causing a pandemic. When shift happens, most people have little or no protection against the new
The current flu type is H3N2v
" and is a variant of H3N2 influenza virus that infected 321 people in the United States in 2011 and 2012. When this virus occurs in pigs, it is
called “swine influenza.” The virus does not usually infect people or spread among people. It is very different from human seasonal H3N2
307 of the cases occurred from July-November 2012.
Symptoms of H3N2v are similar to seasonal flu symptoms."
