There is a discussion of mandatory flu vaccinations. Which is compromising the staff autonomy because there aren’t able to make their own choice and do what they want. For the beneficence the staff who are willing to get the vaccination is putting their patients health first. For maleficence the staff who are not willing to get the vaccination have the possibility of putting their patients at risk or anyone they come in contact with. For the justice, there aren’t any federal laws for flu vaccinations because they support the state laws. Some states will have requirements and exemptions for vaccinations. Generally most of the exemptions apply to students and not employees. If there is a hospital policy the exemption won’t apply (Philips, 2015).
This is an ethical and moral duty nurse, added that threatens the health, religion or life of patients who avoid vaccination, other than of philosophical reason, you can protect patients from cross-transmission. Recently Poland Jacobson as you did with other vaccines, e.g., measles, mumps, rubella and varicella is recommended enacting influenza vaccination of HCWs (Healthcare Worker). This view was supported by the mandatory vaccination argue that supporters can be justified in a given moral safety record of the influenza vaccine. In addition, failure, his own, to achieve the required number to despite the 70 percent vaccination rate for employees of the results from Johns Hopkins University Hospital (JHUH) of volunteer programs, senior epidemiologist
This proves my point in understanding why hospital settings especially require specific vaccinations. As employees, you are making the spread of disease less likely, and you are protecting the world and making it a healthier, safer place. Without mandatory vaccines, the consequences of not taking them would increase, and the rate of disease and spread of disease would jump. With making vaccines a requirement, the disease is not taken lightly, and the chances of the rapid spread are significantly reduced. Vaccines are a safe and effective way to help those who are ill heal by reducing the rapid on spread of disease and increasing the chances of eradicating the disease
Good Day, Jude Soweh Thank you so much for such an inspirational discussion post. You made a tremendous sacrifice and prevailed in good health condition throughout the period of no health insurance. The United States have documented that 32 million Americans are without health insurance as of the year 2014 (Kaiser Family Foundation [KFF], 2016). Given that, 48% have decided to forgo health insurance because of the high cost of the insurance premium (KFF, 2016).
One of the health objectives in the United States for 2010 was to achieve HCW vaccination rates of coverage of 61.9% (Nowalk, Lin, Raymund, Bialor, & Zimmerman, 2013). Frequently reported barriers to vaccination among HCP include concerns about adverse reactions, low perceived vaccine efficacy, low perceived susceptibility to influenza infection, and inconvenience (Nowalk et al., 2013). Recent literature suggests that vaccine coverage rates among HCP can be increased beyond the Healthy People 2020 goal of 90% by requiring vaccination as a condition of employment, and many institutions have recently moved forward with mandatory employee influenza vaccination programs (Bellia, Setbon, Zylberman, & Flahault, 2013). In addition, the Joint Commission infection control standard has required that accredited hospitals, long-term care facilities, and home health providers evaluate healthcare personnel vaccination coverage annually and take appropriate measures to increase it (Naleway, et al., 2014). Despite these recommendations and standards, HCW rates of influenza
How would you feel if you discovered that doctors were pushing flu vaccinations on patients just for financial reasons? That, along with many other, is one good point Claire Dowskin brings up in her article “The Truth Behind Flu Shot Mandates for Healthcare Workers”. In some hospitals flu vaccination funding for employees is out of the funding, and in some hospitals, will fire, or not hire, people if they have not, or refuse to receive a flu vaccination, wearing a mask is not even acceptable. Seeing how strict and forceful some hospitals are about flu vaccines would make one think they act this way for a payout for the vaccine distributers. Another way to look at this is how unethical mandatory vaccines are.
Imagine you’re lying in your bed for days, feeling terrible due to the flu. The flu shot is an effective way to prevent the flu every year. The antibodies in the vaccine change each year to work efficiently. Patients should get the flu vaccine to prevent their bodies from sickness. Throughout each year, people get the flu shot to properly prevent the flu. Every few years, the flu shot intensifies, increasing the risk of getting the flu. The flu vaccine is created to protect people from viruses, needle wounds, and deaths/hospitalization.
The sticker that the influenza vaccine campaign uses " The Flu Stops with U" is an effectiveness advertisement, because it appeals to all ages. The advertisement 's try to explain their purpose, they like to target certain audience, and the persuasive techniques should be clear.
Required Immunity Mandatory vaccinations for children in public schools have been the center of much debate since laws were first developed to regulate immunization. Fears from parents about side effects and adverse reactions have steered many away from wanting to vaccinate their children despite the numerous infectious diseases they prevent. These debates have gotten in the way of progression in schools for preventing the spread of disease. To me, the risks of not vaccinating children are far greater than the risks of adverse reactions.
Requiring vaccinations is a highly debatable topic in the United States today. An article by Ronald Bayer, “The continuing tensions between individual rights and public health,” is one of the most reliable sources in the case study. The author has a PhD from the University of Chicago and focuses his research on issues of social justice and ethical matters. Bayer has also previously been a consultant to the World Health Organization on ethical issues related to public health. This makes him very knowledgeable about the topic and a highly credible source.
Name: Kianna Quam Speech Title: Flu Shots: What You Need To Know Specific Purpose: I want my audience to understand how flu shots work, and be able to make an educated decision on whether or not they need one. Thesis Statement/Central Idea: Flu shots are an important part of keeping ourselves, along with the people around us, healthy. Introduction Attention-Getting Device: Did you get your flu shot last year?
Controlling the spread of infectious diseases through immunization is one of medicine 's most significant accomplishments. Vaccination programs are proven to be a cost-effective means of disease prevention that have saved millions from death. Medical providers play an important role in the promotion of vaccinations; they can promote vaccination by following the standards for Adult Immunization Practice which include a four-step process: ♦ Assess immunization of all patients at every clinical encounter. ♦ Strongly recommend to patients the vaccines that they need.
Groom HC et al. (2014) sought to determine whether there are differences between blacks and whites in influenza vaccine-seeking behavior. It is a problem because patient initiative in seeking out influenza vaccination may be an important aspect to consider when evaluating racial/ethnic disparities in influenza vaccination among adults. Research questions that the authors investigated is whether the proportion of vaccinated person 65 years and older who sought out influenza vaccination varies by race, and whether any relationship between attitudes toward influenza vaccination and vaccine seeking. The target population is adults 65 years and older. They used probability sample design because they analyzed a national sample 3138 adults
Problem Immunization is the process when an individual is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, normally through vaccination (WHO, 2015). Individuals of all ages should receive a shot in order to better protect themselves and the individuals around them. In 1809, Massachusetts became the first state in the nation to require an immunization policy, since then the entire nation now has federal policies implementing vaccinations to protect the public health (Martindale-Hubbell, 2015). However, these policies are typically generated for the younger generation of the population. Federal Immunization policies in the United States are implemented solely to ensure the safety of oneself and the society as a whole.
To me, it’s a two-sided story, why or why not children should obtain the flu shot. For instance, I really believe that the age of six months is too young for a flu shot. This only my opinion, furthermore in this presentation of pros and cons concerning the flu shot, included are statements from average people who have basic concerns for and against this shot. Facts are also noted from professional experts that give reason as to why the flu shot is vital to adults as well as children.
