Flu Shott
A pregnant Pennsylvania nurse has been fired from her job with a health care company after she refused to get a flu shot because she was afraid of miscarrying.

Dreonna Breton was terminated from her job at Horizons Healthcare Services Dec. 17 after she did not comply with a company mandate that requires all employees to receive the influenza vaccine.

The 29-year-old tells WGAL she has suffered two miscarriages this year, and was worried the vaccine may not be safe for pregnant women.

Breton, who also has a toddler son, says she offered to wear a mask at work as a possible alternative solution.

“I want to give this baby the best shot that I can,” she told WGAL. “There are just things in the flu vaccine that are not known, like how it affects my growing baby.”
