Follow the money! It affects much of the behavior of health care politicians, doctors included. Heck, no one cares about the conflict of interest, anyway.
But, in deference to that, I would always take mine, since my exposure was so high, as a practicing physician. It was for my own protection. I could see it, for oncological nurse, since flu could kill a cancer patient, just like it could transplant patients. Terminal hospice patients, not so much. They can choose the profession they would prefer that would not endanger patients. Just saying! Should be easy to fix things up!
Flu can, also, occasionally, kill a normal person, but very rarely. At least equal to, the side effect problem be very slight. But, who wants side effects? Now, it's a problem, indeed!
