should have been made across the NHS each year - what the hell does that mean?
Are they just inventing things now?
From a personal perspective I think yes you should have it. Anybody who works in health-care with patients with weaker immune systems is not really looking after their patients best interests. Most people have a series of vaccinations when they join nursing, so I don't really by all this my human right baloney in relation to flu vaccines. In some wards I've worked in London if you present with Influenza symptoms your sent home which seems sensible to me. I also think if a patient has a concern that a nurse has a cold they should be entitled to decline care (I would). The bigger question I think that needs answering is: Do the general public think nurses having flu vacancies is mandatory? It would be very interesting to see what they believe...
