Mandatory flu shot smackdown!

Our occupational health doc forwarded this link to me, a listserve posting by the medical director of the occupational health clinic at Vanderbilt (my alma mater!). Read it for yourself, but it is a concise critique of the references that IDSA cites in support of their mandatory vaccination position.

Pay particular attention to the conflict-of-interest issue to which she repeatedly refers. Regular readers of this blog know that this is a popular topic here. As well-meaning as they may be, strong proponents of mandatory vaccination always should disclose all of their financial relationships with vaccine manufacturers….and if they wish to maintain credibility in the long run, they should attempt to limit relationships that extend beyond legitimate research funding.
