It’s that time of year when the dreaded lurgy is doing the rounds. And it’s also that time of year for lots of health services to make the flu vaccine available to staff. It’s entirely up to you if you wish to take the flu vaccine.
You can’t be forced to take the flu vaccine regardless of any claims made by your employer. However, if you feel it’s something you should do and your employer is offering the opportunity to take the flu vaccine then you should feel free to take the vaccine.
If you’ve been told to take the flu vaccine and failure to do so will result in some kind of disciplinary action make sure you contact the Union on 9623 9623 or via email at enquiry[at]msav.org.au
