Like it or not local government can too.

This has been prevalent for years
Many employers already require proof of annual flu shots as condition for employment. It's either a flu shot, wear a mask or go work elsewhere

Whooptydoo

According to the DR know-it-all GOP one could simply renegotiate your employment conditions and avoid this altogether

So it's no big deal

Well, I can negotiate my way through this if I want to.

I have already relayed my horror with the forced flu vaccination to keep my job with Providence, which they then eliminated anyway.

I don't believe I can take this one either. If it's any worse than the flu shot I am terrified.

Private sector is great in that regard.

If one has a history of being allergic to vaccines, taking any vaccine could be dangerous.

Oh good I look forward to it being required of welfare recipients as well so Trump supporters can't spread it to decent Americans.

The worst part of a flu shot is waiting in line for the flu shot.

It's normally 2-3 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

I was in a painful fog for at least one month. And angry. And sick. I couldn't drive, barely walk and talk let alone type - it was the single most debilitating act of "medicine" I've experienced. The disassociation was quite evident - vaccines are not something I can ever take again.

This was forced on us to keep our jobs at Providence. FORCED. I complied to keep a roof over my families head.

Liberals will love this since it gives them ANOTHER way to discriminate against people and separate people into groups, and then judge them and find ways to remove their freedoms if they don't agree with Liberal ideology. I mean, I'm all for vaccinations but not forcing them. And someone up there says that companies require flu vaccinations? That must be a regional thing as I've yet to encounter any organization that requires this and I have done countless compliance engagements with organizations, especially during my tenure when I traveled to organizations across the country to validate their controls. I don't doubt there are some that may require it, like medical workers and such, but exaggerating it like it's a prevalent commonality amongst American organizations is dead wrong.

Providence is a large medical industry here. The largest in the NW.

I functioned as a computer technician so travelled to their various facilities, clinics and clinicians. The reasoning was that we are encountering people in direct contact with intake, emergency, nurses and physicians. These are highly trained, very professional staff with demands that keep their operations safe. I loved that job. Directly after the forced vaccinations the department was closed - 22 of us lost our jobs just two weeks before Christmas.

That's true. The republican religion is unwavering support for stupidity and ignorance.

No one is forcing anything. You can quit and go find a job working for another moron who doesn't care about covid.

At the very least health care companies require it.

So do universities on medical campuses.

When did the autism kick in? Right after or at the end of the month?

But seriously what happens when you actually get sick, is it this bad? Actually getting the flu is live virus rather than dead, so still foreign material. Maybe you have an underlying condition unrelated to but corresponding with the time period you got your shot. Get to a doctor.

No problem requiring a vaccination for employees a long as employers are held responsible for negligence if they get employees sick due to lack of providing proper PPE and testing and safe and healthy working conditions.

In other words, as long as it works both ways.

Otherwise, you "employers" can kiss my patooty.

Because I am retired now and though I would like to still do productive work I don't have to.

It happens.

I'm obligated to get vaccinated for stuff all the time. I've never had a problem, but I have a co-worker who had to spend a few weeks in the hospital after getting a vaccination. And the mandatory Anthrax vaccine killed at least one military member.
