22,000 Nurses Refuse Mandatory Vaccine Policy

Nurses against Mandatory Vaccines (NAMV) was founded and formed by our CEO became alarmed when mandatory vaccination policies were being introduced into workplaces, and there seemed to be no rhyme or reason. First and foremost, NAMV is not anti-vaccine, but pro-choice when it comes to vaccination. We believe that all persons should have the right to choose and refuse medical treatment; that means nurses and healthcare workers alike.

Research and other publicly acquired information now shows why: hospital systems are REQUIRED to have a 90% or higher flu shot reception rate among their staff, or they lose up to 2% of their funding of Medicare/Medicaid (http://www.hhs.gov/ash/initiatives/hai/hcpflu.html). While the government itself does not require mandatory vaccination policies, many if not all, are taking an “all or nothing” stance against their workers. You now face being fired and without a job if you refuse a flu vaccine.

This is a human rights violation, is a violation of the Patient Bill of Rights, and is a huge EEOC violation.

The flu vaccine is not an effective way to eradicate a disease that is only ESTIMATED to cause approximately 30,000 deaths in the US per year. This number is lumped in with pneumonia cases. More people die each year from medical errors, heart disease, diabetes, and sepsis.
