I work at two different hospitals. The one I work at full time hasn't made it mandatory(yet) but strongly suggests it and if we do not get it we have to sign a form and agree to wear a mask everytime we work for the rest of flu season(basically until March). My other job is making it mandatory. Only way out is if your doctor signs a form saying you are either allergic to it or have other medical conditions that would prevent you from getting it.
As a medical professional I'm not one of these wacky people that thinks vaccines are bad, but I don't think the flu shot should be mandatory, not when it is a crapshoot anyways every year what strains they protect against.
I'm going next week to get my flu shot to comply, but know some that are not and I'm only assuming they will be terminated because of it. Can that really be just grounds for termination?
