DH is in the ICU and his physical therapist was wearing a mask, aka the mark of a flu shot refuser. She said this was her third year of refusing and having to wear a mask. The difference for her this year is the fact she feels other staff members are attacking her for her choice more now. She said that she feels that her health is important and she will not compromise it with a flu shot. She also mentioned a conversation with a family member of a patient, he said that it seems like a double standard is going on, as the hospital/ICU doesn't require unvaxed visitors to wear a mask. I didn't have the heart to tell her that the 12 year old boy standing next to me (DS) has never had a vaccine in his life. Walking germ factory and all that! winky.gif


Oh, they tried to convince DH to have the flu and a tetanus shots (which I guess would have been the Tdap), of course he refused. But how crazy to want to vaccinate a sick man.

I am sorry your Dh is in the ICU hug2.gif


Wanting to give a man in ICU a tetanus and flu shot is crazy!

There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

Good for her! I hope all will be ok with your DH. It's just disgusting that they'd try to vaccinate him right now.

Wow, whatever happened to only vaccinating the healthy?!  Hope your DH is doing well.
