Your anecdotal luck is not proof that you will never get sick.


And also, if you work for a hospital that requires it, I don't think they are going to take that as evidence that they won't require you to get the flu shot.

I hate that this has to be a jerky-parent-against-careworkers thing. But if there are data showing that increased rates of vaccination cause fewer cases of flu infection, and these infections are leading to DEATHS, I'm having a really hard time understanding the debate here.


Wow, good find. That's some interesting research. I'm going to have to hang onto that...

And man, your situation sounds really terrifying. :(

sorry i was a bit fired up yesterday, i didn't get to emphasize one point. i DO think that people are within their rights to refuse the shot- THERE IS ALLOWANCE FOR THAT. But as a consequence, there should be a mechanism for these people to be transferred into positions where direct public contact or contact with high-risk patients is not possible.
