McGuff and Adalja on Mandatory Flu Vaccination For MDs

ER physician Dr. Doug McGuff explains, "A physician takes his flu vaccine under protest".

Dr. Amesh Adalja offered a different take in "Universal Flu Vaccination of Healthcare Personnel: A Patient Safety Issue" and in this short letter, "Flu vaccine: Should it be mandatory?"

In a free market, many of these potentially divisive issues would be easily handled by freedom of contract between physicians and hospitals.
