Time may be running out for New Jersey healthcare workers who have previously declined to get flu shots – many of their employers are now making it mandatory.
New Jersey hospitals are increasingly requiring workers to get influenza vaccinations, with some exemptions for medical or religious reasons. While state legislators have proposed making it a statewide requirement for healthcare workers, hospitals are increasingly taking action on their own.
The three Atlantic Health System hospitals, Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton and the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro are among hospitals that have adopted flu-shot requirements this year.
