Fired For Flu Shot Refusal

    Fired for not getting a flu shot? An Indiana hospital gets tough on employees, firing eight workers who refused to get the shot.

    FOX News Radio’s Dave Anthony reports:

    Audio clip:

    (Gingerich) “I am not a troublemaker. I feel like I’m a good nurse.”

    But Joyce Gingerich is no longer working at IU Health Goshen Hospital in Indiana, among eight workers fired for refusing to get flu shots.

    Nurse Sue Schrock’s reasons?:

    (Schrock) “They are biblical. That they are God led. And they’re who I am.”

    But the hospital rejected her religious exemption request under the new policy.

    She has other objections too:

    (Schrock) “It’s a toxin that I don’t want in my body. There are side effects with that. There are no¬†guarantees¬†that it’s even going to protect you.”

    The hospital says mandatory flu shots are aimed at protecting patients with compromised immune systems.
