The news is reporting a growing trend, starting with New York, requiring nurses to get the flu vaccine or be fired.

This is very upsetting to me. I never get the flu vaccine and rarely get the flu. I have an autoimmune disorder, so I worry about the effect of a vaccine on my already wacky immune system response.

The US Govt has passed legislation granting immunity to vaccine manufacturers for any future litigation. Again, this makes me very nervous.

Anyone else upset about this?
