Life isn't fair.  As a health professional we have to get hepatitis vaccines, tuberculosis screenings, TDAP and such...its part of the price for being around sick individuals whose immune systems are already compromised.  I'm protected against their diseases so it works both ways.

Sure I could refuse the flu shot and wear a mask during the flu months, but since they don't bother me and its free, I take the  shot and get the kids shots too.

Basically... I don't have a choice or else I'd have sit in litigation conference calls with a mask LOL

well.. i guess if there was a mandate for people to jump off high cliffs every year due to over population, i can see folks doing it w/o hesitation - because it's a mandate.Ouch

The weird part is this:  i work in hospitals/clinics all over the country.  "High End" clinics/hospital do not make this a mandate.  Specifically the "for profit" hospitals. 

Is this because the poorer hospitals don't want to spend extra money on their personnel? when they are "naturally" sick? doesn't a younger individual already has a natural immune response to certain viruses? 

It's certainly not a mandate with Physicians and "Higher Ups" in the hospital hierarchy depending on location.

Pretty much the "Mid Level" and "Below" from what i've seen on signs behind the scenes in certain locations. (is this because physicians have a choice and the "lower level" workers don't"

Where i am working now?  it is not a requirement at all. The personnel have a choice as to whether they wish to be inoculated.

The real question is:

Who is profiting from these "Mandates" in hospitals?

I'm very sure that the hospitals that are "campaigning" for these pharmaceutical companies - are getting a HUGE kick back for 100% (Mid-level and below), participation.

A kickback that the employees will never know about behind the scenes. 

The more hospitals participate?  Guess who's rolling in the profits..that's right, friends and neighbors, the good 'ole pharmaceutical companies.  "Mandates are a billion dollar industry in itself"..

working at religious based hospitals (catholic, seventh day adventist, church of the latter day saints, jehovah's witness, etc.) in many locations has given traveling independent contractors a choice in the matter.

Thus, contractors are able to see a much bigger picture regarding the medical experience. (unfortunately)..Ouch

I have to get a flu shot before I can begin volunteering again at this health clinic. I can't recall if I've ever had one.

well, if you do?

make sure you're not allergic to eggs? Not sure if they've improved their ingredients?

One nurse i befriended told me of her friend that died.  He was an ICU nurse, and at the time?  the pharmaceutical companies made the "mandate" - the early 90's i think.  He took the flu shot drove home. A couple of hours later - he was brought back in DOA to their trauma center.. he had an anaphylactic reaction to the shot while driving home.  Head on collision.

And.. of course... the hospital was "deeply sorry for this tragic accident".. they sent the family, a card, their condolences.....

and NEXT!!!
