The Abington Health System has suspended more than 50 employees without pay because they did not get flu shots.
They now have two weeks to get the shots or get fired. Abington Health includes Abington Memorial Hospital, Lansdale Hospital and several outpatient clinics. The system has a new policy requiring all employees to get flu shots, with exceptions only for medical or religious reasons. An Abington Health official says some people forgot, some need to clarify health concerns, and others are just afraid of needles.
