Some nurses believe that it is nurses' moral obligation to get a flu shot to show community an example to do what is right. And that is exactly the reason why I always refuse a flu shot - to be an example.
For what age group is this years influenza vaccine 9% effective?
How effective is it for the age group that the vast majority of healthcare providers belong in ? (hint: a whole lot better than 9%).
The fact that this years batch isn't as effective for people over 65 as one would wish is a strong reason for us who do work in healthcare to get the influenza vaccine so that we lower the risk of infecting our vulnerable patients.

If you do embark on a nursing career you will be expected to practice evidence-based medicine. I believe that you need to be more critical about your sources.
pmabraham, please help me out here. I found this on You Tube. Is this man the founder of Natural News? Do you consider him credible?
