Hospitals Prepare For The Flu
CDC Warns This Year's Flu Is Earlier and The Strain More Potent
Officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say this year's flu season is off to it's earliest start in nearly a decade. Many hospitals nationwide, including 19 in Connecticut, have implemented mandatory flu shots for it's workers.
But, there has been some pushback from unions representing hospital workers, and at least a few workers have been fired for refusing to get the flu shot.
Dr. Mary Reich Cooper, Vice-President and Chief Quality Officer at the Connecticut Hospital Association talks about it.
