One of my earliest memories from childhood is being smuggled into Crouse Irving Hospital in Syracuse- into the ICU to see my Dad. At the age of 5, in the 1970's, I wasn't allowed to be there- the nurses snuck me in to visit Dad after he contracted Guilliam-Barre syndrome from a swine flu vaccine. He was 24, a Trooper with the NYSP, and a week after getting the flu shot, as he was getting dressed for his shift, noticed he couldn't lift his arm. 2 weeks later, he was in the ICU and unable to move ANYTHING from his neck down. Last year, they made it mandatory that any hospital worker HAD to get the vaccine, or they would be fired. I REFUSE! It hasn't been tested, and with my family history I'm scared. Fortunatly I managed to put it off long enough that NY "ran out" of vaccine, and they stated what they had should be saved for the elderly. I believe it was a face saving attempt after they got sued.Yes, I am a nurse, YES I want to keep my patients safe- But I believe this is not constitutional-I should have the choice, just as my patients have choices in their life that effect their health- This impacts ME as I have to care for them. I hope this nurse sues their butts off.
