I am currently doing my preceptorship at a Hospital that is making flu shots mandatory this year. They are even taking it to the level that if you don't agree to get it, they will make you wear a button stating your choice not to get the shot. Along with this mandatory button you have to wear a mask while on hospital grounds. The disciplinary action for not wearing the mask and button is termination, is this even fair or legal?
So you're doing your preceptorship, as in you're a senior in nursing school and this is your integrative practicum?
If so, I think you have even less of a leg to stand on.
At least by us, we are in our clinical sites, by invitation only. They could make any demand on us they wanted to, and if we decline to comply, we're welcome to no longer go to clinicals there. It's really that simple.
Is there a reason you don't want to get a H1N1 shot? (you said flu shot, I'm assuming you mean a H1N1 vaccine?)
