Thanks for this info. My employer (small hospital in Maine) does NOT have an egg-free vaccine in their supply to offer me and has referred me to my own physician to get one. My immediate supervisor is sympathetic to my plight and has told me that if I have to pay out of pocket for this vaccine gotten from my own physician, that she will do what she can to reimburse me or see that I am reimbursed....she insists that I should not be required to pay for this on my own because it's a hospital mandate .(and the hospital is giving all other employees the vaccine for free)I have being in this position, but I obviously can not afford to lose my job (I've been in this position with this hospital for 5 years now and all years previously had been allowed to sign a waiver to get out of having the vaccine. This is the first year that they are doing away with the waiver and insisting on all employees getting vaccinated. FLU vaccines are garbage, in my professional opinion!! (and I have 2 Master's Degrees)
