I think that it should be individual choice. My main question is how widespread is mandatory flu jabs for health care professionals?
It should definitely be an individual choice, BUT the results of that choice should be not to hire you should you refuse to be vaccinated.
It astounds me that we could have anti-vax people working in the health care field.
I have joined a number of anti-vax Facebook pages to see just how far down the rabbit hole some of their nonsensical beliefs go. Ive read posts from parent who think "cleansing" (ie urine or epsom salt baths) can cure anything from rubella to tetanus. Ive read posts from parents who give their autistic kids bleach enemas, because they think it kills the "intestinal parasites" causing their child's autism.
All of it modern day snake oil or witchcraft, with no scientific basis.
Frankly, Ive read and witnessed so many scary things I think parenting should now require approval and a license before being allowed.
