BJC Mandatory Flu Shots

The BJC health system is mandating flu shots, and I am getting calls and emails about it. Here are my quick and dirty thoughts —-

I am sorry to have to say the following:

  • Assuming that BJC’s order for flu shots applies to everyone under its control, or at least to large groups rather then selected individuals, there isn’t much you can do.
  • You can ask to be exempted on religious or disability grounds, if a flu shot conflicts with your religion or your disability.
  • If you refuse the flu shot and quit, or refuse and get fired, you will probably not get unemployment benefits unless you have a good religious or medical reason to have refused the shot.
