I’ve been getting so many frantic requests from healthcare workers about the upcoming Flu Shot Season — and their right to refuse. Unfortunately, the window to mount a full revolt across the country probably closed, several years ago. It appears that each of you is going to have to take an individual stand for yourself.
I’ve put together a letter and a document to use for your own personal circumstances. Feel free to print it, modify it, put it onto your own letterhead (if you have one) and share with your friends. Perhaps this will even become an “educational moment” for healthcare administrators and the doctors on the hospital’s executive committee who are making the policies and mandates about flu vaccines.
