Mandatory Flu Shots?

So I heard through the grapevine that the university was going to make it mandatory for every single person working here to have a flu shot. Whether you actually see patients or not makes no difference. I’d like to see them try to give me one. I think flu shots are a crock of shit just like the Gardasil vaccines they toot. These shots do not prevent you from getting sick so why say they will. People get sucked into believing anything. I also know quite a few people who have become deathly ill after receiving the flu shot too who also refuse to get them anymore.

So let’s review the punishment as it were if you do not receive a flu shot. You have to wear a mask for whatever they deem to be the length of “flu season”. That’s all well and good but who is going to check up these people to see if they truly are wearing a mask? I don’t see this one happening. Also, if you think about it, that’s infringing on a person rights. I could also see some lawsuits happening if they make a big stink about it too. What’s next mandatory sterilization? They can bite me for all I care.

    Oh, I hope not. We have to fill out a consent form but we can freely consent of decline.

    I’ve been having flu shots for years with no problems. I had a mild dose of flu when I had my shot too late one year. I’ve always been self-employed so no work, no money.

    Having said that, I don’t think anyone should be forced to be given a shot. As long as those that catch flu stay at home and look after themselves
