Really you think every nurse is vaccinated for measles? you think none are exempt?
have cancer, pregnant, HIV/ AIDS, reaction to neomycin, etc
we do have to remember there are nearly two whole generations that have been HIV+ from birth, they grow up, and some do work in the health field - are you trying to say their aren't any?
Only during flu season do hospitable impose some restrictions on visitors, many hospitable have shared patient rooms, we are not screening visitors nor are we saying how long they can stay visiting.
what about a worship service, you can move but really you can not control who sits by you - communion anyone?
what about a school class, you have no right to know the vaccine status of others in your class
what about having your hair done, direct contact, very little control on others also being there and close by, not to mention sanitary condition issues
what about waiting in an ER, you sit, and often wait by who ever and you don't know what they have if anything
what about dinner out, you don't know who is sitting next to you, who just got up, who is in the kitchen, etc
what about a bus ride…………… anything goes!
all of which bring you in close contact if not direct contact with others, all of which last about 45 minutes, your average contact with a medical person is far less than that
By comparison, the average doctor’s visit today is around 19 minutes, according to theNational Center for Health Statistics.
