Student nurses left unprotected after being refused flu jab


The flu jab does not protect everyone, and the percentage is surprisingly low. It's only in the last few years that the NHS has been banging on about getting staff immunised, and it is not because they care about the nurses and medical staff, its because they don't want the inconvenience of us being off sick and having to be replaced which costs money. When I trained, many years ago, staff having a flu jab was never mentioned, let alone financed, and as student nurses we wouldn't have been considered anyway. It is better to improve your own immune system by healthy diet, exercise, preferably outdoors, vit D supplements, etc.
