Can an employee be forced to leave if they do not partake in something that violates their beliefs

My employer just enacted a policy that makes employment contingent on receiving the flu shot. They do offer a religious exemption for all religions that state (as one of their tenets) that their members may not receive vaccines. If I am not a member of one of these religions, but yet still believe that I should not take vaccines, is this now discrimination against me because of my religion (or lack of one)?

No, it is not religious discrimination.
