Student nurses left unprotected after being refused flu jab


This is my first blog - EVER.!! What Michael Stone says makes eminent sense. What I would add is that if the DoH requires nursing student vaccination and this edict is ignored, the Department MUST enforce it. The likelihood of infecting/being infected by patients is so patently obvious that it hardly needs stating. I have been fortunate enough never to have suffered influenza but the widely-reported debilitating effects of this viral invasion are surely severe enough to justify free and readily available jabs to all (not merely nursing students) actually or potentially at risk within the healthcare field.
