For those of you working in health care or going to college for say nursing-did you have to get vaccinated? Or do you know if you have to? It's a field I wouldn't mind going into, but I don't want to vax myself. I emailed the nursing director at the college, but haven't heard back. I've had people tell me it would be hard to get a job. Not that I want to increase the chance of brining illness home, but I can't really think of any other career path where I could work 2 double shifts, other than nursing or similar.

You would have to get vaccinated, including getting a flu vaccine every year. I had to turn down a job as a counselor at a hospital because I refused to get vaccinated. They require EVERYONE to get vaccines who work at the hospital--even janitors and cafe workers. At least that's what I was told at the hospital near me that I wanted to work at.

Thanks I completely forgot about the hospitals. My bil has had to get almost every vax made. Hmmm. That stinks.
