Show-Me Forced Flu Shot For Missouri Nurse

Protest after hospital policy trumped religious objections. Checkit:

Missouri nurse fired for refusing flu shot over religious beliefs, protesters claim

A group of protesters gathered outside of Mercy Hospital South in St. Louis Monday to protest the hospital's policy that requires employees to receive a flu shot -- claiming at least one employee at the facility -- a nurse -- was fired after she refused to be vaccinated on religious grounds.

Good on the hospital; they're not in the business of blind faith.

You have to wonder where she got her "nursing degree".
You'd think maybe some common sense would dictate that a person working around a building full of sick people would be required to take every precaution so that they wouldn't spread disease and put others at risk.
In fact, hospitals are already some of the most likely places to contract infections and other medical difficulties.
Another example of all rights and no responsibilities.
Maybe she should look for a job with Joel Olsteen.

^^^^^^^^ 6:09

STFU IDIOT There have been people who ended up in wheel chairs from flu shots! What does Joel Olsteen have to do with anything????? Or are you just an intolerant Christian basher??

How is it all rights and no responsibility when she was fired???? That's how flipping STUPID YOU ARE!

^^Dope. Good on the hospital for shit canning her dumb ass. I sure as shit don't want a religious idiot treating me or anyone else I care about.

Well 8:16, I think the writer simply meant Osteen is a master of sucking money from slack jawed Walmart shoppers who sit in his huuuuge auditorium and look at his $3000 suits and believe they too can have that, and this guy is the way to God. That is the definition of STUPID, and as often said, you can't fix it. By the way, it's Osteen nor OLsteen.

There are people who have ended up in wheelchairs from taking aspirin, Go handle your snakes.

I think the hospital should have allowed her to work without the shot, so she could have spread her diseases to a wider circle of victims! Maybe she'll be able to get a job serving French fries somewhere so she can carry out her God's wishes that she sicken or kill others.

The threat of contracting a life threatening case of MRSA or antibiotic-resistant Staph during a hospital stay is far and away greater than the risk of contracting the flu from a nurse who didn't get shot.

Oh, and before you idiots accuse me of being some nutcase antivaxxer, I just got my flu and penumonia shot last week and a tetanus shot in October.

^^Good for you idiot, that's what you're supposed to do. You want us to clap? That idiot nurse got what she deserved. I'm sure she can take comfort that her God will provide for her well being right? Right?

The Flu shot doesn't do shit because the flu virus is ever evolving and there are like 1000 different variations. The flu shot is just a feel good thing, not an actual shot that has any utility

Bottom Line Is said...

When you choose to work in the health field you have to accept that at times you will have to be vaccinated to not only protect yourself but those you come in contact with. Sure you should have the right to refuse such vaccinations and understand that by doing so your employer has the right to dismiss you for being a health risk to not only yourself but to all you come in contact with.

fuck her religious beliefs but you cant force the flu on people

^^You can if you work in the health care community and it is in the terms of your employment as it was in hers.

Maybe she cited religious belief b/c hospitals ignore the fact the flu shot makes every flu season more severe or b/c the flu evolves so quickly that if you have a shot u may just get it anyway, or b/c pharmaceutical companies like everyone to be over immunized b/c it is good for their pocket book, and if some shill wants to make that a requirement for every employee, it will be done. CDC said overall vaccine effectiveness (VE) in preventing influenza virus infection was 36 percent.

I can understand how they can determine when a flu shot did not work, how do they determine if it worked?

^^^Did you get the flu?? There. It worked.

Do her religious beliefs prevent premarital intercourse? Oral sex?
