ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the position paper of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) entitled "Influenza Vaccination Should Be a Condition of Employment for Healthcare Personnel, Unless Medically Contraindicated." The paper's lead author Linda Greene says there are employees who threatened to leave organizations that added mandatory immunization. However, the Association of Occupational Health Professionals in Healthcare (AOHP) opposes the APIC's mandate.
