Will You Take The Coronavirus Vaccine?


Some hospitals might mandate their employees to take the vaccine, just like some require them to take the flu shot.

Last year I made a video talking about whether you should take the flu shot.



I think the pushback and the fight will be even more vicious if the Coronavirus Vaccine is required simply because people are highly suspicious of this virus and its numbers (people testing positive, or dying) and because it hasn’t been tested long enough.


And do not think that hospitals will not try to force their employees to get the vaccine. Hospitals depend on Medicare money, and if Medicare says everyone has to take it, then the medical facility might do what they say.
