Nurses at Indiana hospital fired for refusing flu shot

Several workers at an Indiana hospital were fired after refusing to get a flu shot.

Indiana's Goshen Hospital made the shots mandatory for its employees. But, 26 people asked to not get vaccinated for religious reasons.

A committee allowed only 11 of those people to continue working without getting the flu shot.

The hospital said each religious appeal was reviewed according to Equal Opportunity Employment Guidelines.

A spokesperson for the hospital said that health and safety of patients is a top priority.
