This is so depressing. All the news about the ineffectiveness of the flu shot means nothing. Every fall, like clockwork, you should come to expect stories like this. When will the public catch on? Ever?
"Flu shot now required for state health care workers"
Ok, fine, they have an option. Good. Until......
So now, if your church does not provide documentation, your religious exemption does not qualify? What if I were in this position? My church would not give me an exemption if I asked. I know this because the pastor's wife runs a nice daycare, but she would not accept my daughter because my daughter is not vaccinated. What if I needed a religious exemption in order to keep my job?
Would I interview churches and join one that believes in vaccine freedom? What if there were no local churches that would work with me ?( this is a possibility where I live, people love their vaccines here) This policy seems like it's putting church in the middle of a state issue. Also, what if you are not a member of a church, but vaccinating is against your religious beliefs?
One step closer, people. Watch what happens in the years to come. We are losing ground here, I'm afraid. Bit by bit, our freedoms are being removed. I'll be saving up to move to Colorado lol! Seriously, it's in my plan if my state continues to deteriorate like this.
