Student nurses left unprotected after being refused flu jab

Comment

This is silly as Student Nurses are vulnerable to catching flu on the ward themselves, missing time and if they get it then can pass it onto vulnerable patients. Are they immune already or something? Come on NHS - these are the trained nurses of the future. Is this all about money? We need to allow them to take responsiblity and set and example to the NHS staff who themselves do not have the jab. I work on the ENT ward so very likely to come into contact with them but I also work with the cancer patients - I could not live with myself if I gave an immunocompromised patient Flu. We need to act like professionals if we want to be treated like one.
