Who pays for flu shots? I want to pay for my nanny's flu shot...my husband thinks its her responsibility. I guess, I'm selfish in wanting to pay for it to protect my kids and prevent her from potentially missing a week of work. Husband thinks nanny has insurance and if her insurance doesn't pay then she should pay...its her medical stuff...not ours. My company pays for mine...our insurance pays for our kids. So if I have to fork out a few bucks for our nanny to also be covered, its worth it. So who's right? P.S. Our nanny does want to get the flu shot, its not like we "require" it or anything...she got it last year and her insurance covered it...but she has a new plan this year and isn't sure and was going to look into it.
