NY State Health Workers Sue Over H1N1 Vaccine

State health workers in New York are suing the state over a regulation requiring them to get an H1N1 shot or lose their jobs. WCAX TV reports that the state Health Department issued the emergency regulation in August that requires all health care workers be immunized. They have until Nov. 30 to get the shot or be fired. In the suit, workers say that requirement is a violation of their civil rights. They also argue that the H1N1 vaccine hasn't been fully tested and they don't want to suffer any side effects.
