I just wanted your opinion on the seasonal flu vaccine. I work in Occupational Health at the hospital and our flu vaccination programme starts next month. We are supposed to encourage as many staff as possible to be vaccinated and be vaccinated ourselves. I have been given the flu vaccine for the past 5 or more years and am now unsure I want it. My manager said today how bad it would look if one of our staff weren’t vaccinated and then got flu so I feel slightly pressured to have it, plus the questions as to why I don’t want it.
What’s your view, what are the risks? Obviously we don’t get told any of the bad information as we are selling it.
