Pediatricians will join call for mandatory flu shots - USATODAY.com

I'd like to see them try to make it mandatory for all nurses, doctors and healthcare professionals. A national flu outbreak aside, there just isn't a documented need for it. The issue comes up as well, if it sickens healthcare professionals, is the employer or government going to pay the full cost of the illness it caused by making the shots mandatory?

Pediatricians will join call for mandatory flu shots - USATODAY.com:"The American Academy of Pediatrics plans to call for all health workers to get flu vaccinations, saying unvaccinated doctors, nurses and other medical staffers pose a threat to patients. The academy, which represents 60,000 pediatricians, is the latest of several organizations that now back mandatory flu shots for health workers. The groups include the National Patient Safety Foundation, the Infectious Diseases Society of America and the Society of Healthcare Epidemiologists."
