Another Swine Flu Post: Mandatory Vaccinations?


Was reading this yesterday about the swine flu vaccinations required of health care workers in New York. In general I think we're accustomed to health-care workers and similar employees being subject to more rigorous standards for background checks, drug screenings, and the like. We're also becoming accustomed to more and more state laws taking firmer steps -- some of which expand to employment contexts -- to protect public welfare, e.g., smoking bans, cell phone use bans, restrictions on guns in the workplace, etc.

But is this getting a little too invasive, or is it justified for the good of the client/customer (patient) as well as the other employees?

What sayeth you all?
