Why is the Covid vaccine being mandatory, but the flu shot isn’t?

I think since flu has been endemic for a long time, we generally have varying degrees of resistance to it already, while this is less true for SARS-CoV-2 and it’s variants. But I could be wrong. Plus what SCA1 said.

Much of today’s flu was the deadly Spanish flu of 100 years ago. We built up immunity and many get vaccinated so it’s less deadly now. If a vaccine was available in 1918 it may have reduced the incidence we still see today

People need to lose weight, eat healthy, and exercise. Mortality rate wouldn’t have been so bad especially in the US. Immune system would at least have a shot at working. But we celebrate obesity.

G1, but you were minimizing my comment, not OP, by saying ‘everyone is dying because their friends call them beautiful’. You twisted my words to elevate your own. I don’t disagree with what you are saying at all, I also don’t disagree that obesity is a problem. But I do find your tactic of arguing very distasteful.

Since 2010, about 359,000 people died from the flu. Within the last 19 months, 722,000 people have died of Covid. Why are you still comparing it to the flu? If you went to school, chances are the MMR vaccine was mandatory. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/past-seasons.html

Because one is an insanely contagious disease that shows no symptoms for almost two weeks, and quite literally paralyzed the entirety of human civilization until we got a vaccine? Obviously? Get your damn shot.

Well, it’s been answered.

The flu shot is mandated in certain settings (like healthcare facilities).

This is a stupid response as the flu vaccine is not required in most employee work places outside of health care.

like

COVID is more pressing right now and out of control. The mandatory rules are short lived until we all get some immunity and stop dying.

This should help convince a data driven person such as OP. This is a bit dated but you can see that fatal outomes, hospitalizations, ease of spread is all bad with COVID than with seasonal flu.

Yeah, it is a bit dated - Pre Delta. Delta makes it even worse. But this goes to illustrate why COVID is bad on most infectious factors and outcomes than seasonal flu.

Flu has a lower mortality and lower coverage to buffer. The volume of people who do it voluntarily is enough to keep hospitals from overflowing.

Because Covid is in the news

Wrong.

Oh Jesus !!

Because the flu and other viruses don’t exist anymore.

Because if you get sick with Covid and take a long leave , companies have to pay you sick leave. It ain’t right for capitalism. Now, get back to work!!

My firm recently merged with another firm, and it is starting to feel distinctly more “corporate.” All of their decisions are metric-driven now—billables, realization rates, client and matter origination, business development hours. I’m missing the community feeling of the old firm, when I was more than just a number. Any advice on how to adapt? Is this just COVID burnout?
