Karen De Coster brought to my attention an interesting conflict between two federal agencies. In her blog she points out that Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has come out against mandating vaccines for hospital workers which goes contrary to the policies being recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) .
“OSHA believes that there must be a very high burden of proof that mandatory … programs are not just desirable, but also necessary to protect the public health before the government promotes such a controversial policy that may result in employment termination. At this time, OSHA believes there is insufficient evidence for the federal government to promote mandatory influenza vaccination programs that may result in employment termination.”
I say three cheers for Liberty and one cheer for OSHA
