1viruses as vaccines become available. The Department may adopt
2rules setting forth the requirements of the influenza
3vaccination program. A health care employee may decline the
4offer of vaccination if the vaccine is medically
5contraindicated, if the vaccination is against the employee's
6religious beliefs, or if the employee has already been
7vaccinated. General philosophical or moral reluctance to
8influenza vaccinations does not provide a sufficient basis for
9an exemption.
