Canadian Nurses Association: Rescind your flawed position on mandatory immunization
The Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) has adopted a flawed position statement that recommends mandatory immunization of Registered Nurses (RNs).

Send your own message, now, to urge the CNA board of directors to rescind their position statement.
