Some nurses are very unhappy about what they see as coercive tactics to force annual flu vaccines on them. As a long-time RN (thankfully spared this), I agree. You should be aware how our medical rights are being trampled so we can be on guard.
If you are a nurse employed today in the US and refuse the annual mandatory flu vaccines (CDC admits they are less than 70% effective due to rapid mutations), then you have to wear a face mask while on duty.
Multiple studies have also shown that flu vaccines are ineffective and do not offer any extra protection for hospital patients, yet hospitals are basically coercing and shaming nurses into getting the influenza vaccine if they chose not to take it. Everyone knows that wearing a mask or a little sticker on a name tag means ‘I don’t have my vaccine.’
