Yes it's to protect both the nurse AND the patient. But the vaccine isn't 100% effective, so to force someone to do something that may not work is just insane IMO. A vaccine isn't unnatural? Injecting formeldehyde, mercury, aluminum, aborted fetal tissue, animal tissue and/blood, etc is not something I think is natural. Getting the sickness/disease is and provides you (most of the time) with life long immunity and the added benefit of not having such chemicals floating around in your body doing damage at the cellular level. Formeldehyde alone can cause cancer. It's just scary. IMO, it's not worth the risk. I'd rather take the slim chance of catching something. HOWEVER....I do see the pro vaccine side of the issue, I do understand that people feel more protected having the vaccines.
