Do you have to be vaccinated for jobs like being a correctional officer?
I am thinking about becoming a correctional officer and while I was considering the career as a whole, I began thinking about vaccinations and how I really just don't want to get any. Do you have to get vaccinated in a career such as that? In other words, would a person not being willing to be vaccinated be denied employment for that type of job or even other jobs and is there a way around it? Is it constitutional for jobs to force that on people?
