What do you think about a company making the flu vaccination mandatory?
TriHealth, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based health center fired 150 of its workers the Wednesday before Thanksgiving for not complying with a mandate that every member of the 10,800-person staff get the vaccine, which was being offered for free on-site. The workers had been given a month to comply with the mandate before Nov. 16, according to local Ohio news outlet, WLWT.
The article says that the workers can appeal to be reinstated after they get the vaccine. Do you think it's appropriate that a company can mandate what gets put into your body? Does the fact that they are in the health care industry change your opinion?
