    My facility is mandating both vaccines. There are 3 reasons you dont get it 1) is medical (allergic to eggs, hx of gilliaine barre) 2) religous reasons and I forget the 3rd but if you have these accomodations you get to wear a mask every minute you are on hospital property except your 30 minute lunch break...otherwise end result you get terminated. I dont agree either but jobs are hard to find right now and some battles arent worth fighting at this moment so I got both of mine.
