Colorado wants flu vaccinations for health workers 

Colorado state health officials want to require flu vaccinations for nearly all hospital and nursing-home employees.

According to the Denver Post (http://bit.ly/z9m3lE), the state board of health will vote next month on new rules requiring low- and high-risk medical facilities to increase coverage to 90 percent of workers in 2014.

The proposal is drawing criticism from workers who have religious and other concerns.
