4 Objections to the Flu Vaccine Mandate
A letter written by Richard Moskowitz, M.D., retired, Boston, MA...
Please Don't Mandate the Flu Shot
I want to speak against the flu vaccine mandate that Governor Baker has just issued. I have four objections to it.
First, it's unethical. It violates core American values, both our time-honored insistence that every child deserves an education, and the Nuremberg Code, which we helped formulate in the wake of atrocious Nazi medical experiments inflicted on death camp victims in World War II, and still profess to adhere to. It strictly forbids subjecting anyone to any medical procedure without his or her fully informed consent.
I can imagine a true public health emergency, such as a terrorist attack, in which such rights might need to be waived temporarily. But this is not one of them. The mandate is meant to prevent the concurrence of our regular seasonal flu and what's left of the COVID from overwhelming our limited hospital capacity. This danger is purely hypothetical. It didn't materialize when the COVID was at its peak, and almost certainly won't on the downside. It seeks to prevent an illness that most people won't experience, and isn't that dangerous when they do.
So the optimal solution is simply to keep the vaccine optional, as it is now, available to all who want it and will feel protected by it. End of story.
