Pagan/Wiccan Religion/Vaccinations

Question
I am a pregnant woman working as an RN at a hospital that just started a policy stating that all employees are to be vaccinated against the flu.  My belief on the matter is that my body was built the way it is for a reason and introducing poison in any form, including vaccinations, is going against what nature intended.  I am currently trying to get a religious exemption from the vaccine and am looking for advice from a religious expert.  Do you have any advice you could offer me or do you know of anyone who could help?

Answer
You want a Christian Scientist I think.
We beleive God/dess gave us a brain to learn things, including medicine.  While I am an herbalist for the most part, and always try natural remedies before seeking to put chemicals in my body, I realize that some things are worth the prevention.  I have found that I either avoid the flu all together or have a reduced severity if i do catch it since I have been vaccinated...and I work in an elementary school which is almost as bad as a hospital for germs!
I understand your concern being pregnant, that does change the picture a bit.  I hope you find what you need but its not here.

Blessed Be and Good Fortune to the baby,

Expertise

I can answer all questions regarding natural spirituality and being a pagan. Being Wicca, Golden Dawn, Shamanist, whatever...is like saying you're Lutheran or Baptist. They are all forms of paganism and all based on natural spirituality. I am Romani (gypsy) and part Lakota (American Indian) and I was raised in natural spiritualism. I am a life path counselor for my group, a ritualist, and a spell weaver. Most of my work consists of guiding people on how to find spiritual peace in a very chaotic material world. Ask me anything.
