IU Health Employees to be Fired Over Flu Vaccinations
About 175 employees are losing their jobs because of the IU Health Network's new policy regarding flu shots.

The hospital network refused to comment on the firings, but did say the policy was rooted in health concerns for patients, who might be vulnerable to contracting the flu
