Healthcare workers avoid flu jab

Tools

Although two-thirds of the population falls into the CDC's recommendation for the flu vax, one segment of the population continues to bypass the immunization. Nearly 60 percent of healthcare workers fail to get the jab. This despite the CDC's recommendation that all health care workers, from volunteers to doctors get vaccinated. The flu vax should be standard for doctors and nurses, just like washing their hands, argues Dr. William Schaffner, professor of medicine in the division of infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University. "It is a professional obligation on the part of health care workers to make sure that they are as protected against influenza as possible," Dr. Schaffner said. Article

Working people are also prone with viral infection. I would suggest that they better rest instead of going to work and making yourself sicker.
Fall may be the most beautiful season of the year, but it can also be a hideous season, for the flu virus makes its yearly visit. Frequently washing your hands is an easy, inexpensive way to prevent the spread of disease and illness, such as the flu virus. So if you were not aware, start washing away. People need to understand how serious the flu is. About 226,000 people are hospitalized every year and nearly 36,000 people die from it each year. 36,000! Make a wise decision – wash your hands and get an annual flu shot. Flu shots generally cost $25 to $30, but when you have a family of five, those $30 shots quickly add up to a large sum. Then again, consider how much more you’ll have to pay if it does get worse and requires a hospital visit. Obviously, the flu season can take a toll on your body and your budget. If you’re short this paycheck and need help covering those flu shots, save yourself future hardships (physically & financially) and apply for a payday cash loan.

The flu shots often contain mercury at the level when diluted has been filmed destroying brain cells.

So why not save that hard earned money and save yourself from Alzeimers Disease too?

I would prefer the flu anyday but unfortunately I haven't been to the doctors for a long long time.

If I started to take their medications most of which eventually get pulled off the market for being dangerous I would probably be pushing up roses today.

Instead of which I am here saying how safe is unsafe?
