N.Y. Health Care Workers Revolt Over H1N1 Vaccine
Saying They Should Be Given A Choice, Employees Rally In Albany, Around State, Chant "No Forced Shots!"
Protesters Hold Signs That Read: "The State Doesn’t Own My Body’"
STONY BROOK, N.Y. (CBS) ?
They’re upset over an ultimatum from the health department.
Workers are being told to either get the swine flu vaccine or lose their jobs.
New York is the first state in the country to mandate flu vaccinations for its health care workers. The first doses of swine flu vaccine will be available beginning next week. Much of it is reserved for state health care workers, but there is growing opposition to required innoculations.
Health care workers in Hauppauge screamed "No forced shots!" as they rallied Tuesday against the state regulation requiring them to roll up their sleeves.
"The state doesn’t own my body" Oh yes they do, or will, when you are on the government plan. It’s ironic how that argument is used for abortion supporters but is A-ok among many of the same brain aborted radicals that will be mandating health care to the rest of us people that aren’t smart enough or privileged enough to be able to read proposed health care bills.
