Student nurses left unprotected after being refused flu jab

Comment

From what I can gather the 1918 flu pathology is still a hypothesis and thought to be an overactive immune response, not a healthy response. Anaphylaxsis also comes under this umbrella. Taking vit D and C doesn't necessarily 'increase' your immune response but enables a healthier response. Developing an illness is also not a failure in health, despite the context of a war continually put forward by the media/pharma/etc. As there are various reasons for contracting a virus, so there are various reasons for caution regarding vaccination, aside from the evidence or lack of efficacy. Even having a vaccination in no way guarantees protection. Any employer insisting on vaccination of staff is still illegal as far as I'm aware, and constitutes assault. However this piece seems to be pointing out the falling between the rock and the hard place of trying to get a vaccination, again due to funding issues. Hurrah for fragmentation of services!!
