On Thursday, health officials announced that flu shots are only 23 percent effective against this season's strain. This is not a good sign in a season where it seems more and more people are being stricken down with the flu.
Last week, Holland Hospital announced that they will require all employees, students, and volunteers to get flu shots beginning this fall. Most other West Michigan hospitals already have a similar policy. Is it OK for an employer to require a flu shot? Who should be required to get one?
