I am really sorry that so many people left rather rude comments to your post. I can understand someones hesitance to just accept a required injection. As a matter of fact if someone would have told me 20 years ago that I would be accepting a required government injection to keep my job, I would have never believed it. Without getting into the debate about required vaccines; there are still areas that you could work in nursing without patient contact. Areas that comes in mind would be computer technology, Pharmaceutical sales, infomatics, or possibly even tele-health. I also would encourage you to look into the research behind vaccines and understand them and their importance in protecting vulnerable patients. Also with the world population growing to such extremes airborne illnesses like influenza, pneumonia and other viruses are becoming more of a threat as people are in closer contact than ever before. I would say to search within yourself to determine what type of job you could see yourself doing for the next 30 years. The two degrees that you talk about could have very different jobs. Best wishes for a bright future whatever you choose.
