vaccines 210x131 New Bill to Mandate Flu Vaccine for New Jersey Health Care Workers

Thanks to a new bill currently going through New Jersey legislature, employees working at health care facilities such as general or special hospitals, nursing homes, or home health care agencies may be ‘mandatorily’ required to receive the flu vaccine. The bill, recently approved by the Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee, may be voted on this week.

Needless to say, this bill is not the first to call for mandatory flu vaccines. Previously, a federal advisory committee has called on hospitals and healthcare clinics to make the seasonal flu shot mandatory for all employees. What the advisory committee fails to mention is that there is a shocking lack of evidence supporting the effectiveness of the flu vaccine — especially regarding certain healthcare workers in particular. The Cochrane Database Review, the gold standard within the evidence-based medical model for deciding the potency of common medical interventions, does not lend clear scientific support to the theory that flu vaccines are safe or effective.

It is unfortunate to see such a practice pushed so hard on individuals, as the flu vaccine has a rather concerning history. In 2010, government health chiefs confirmed a link between the H1N1-containing seasonal flu vaccination and the killer nerve disease known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome. But this information didn’t stop health officials from pushing the vaccine onto the population in 2010 and 2011.

The link between Guillain-Barre Syndrome and the flu vaccine has been confirmed by studies, anecdotal evidence, and even the vaccine insert itself. The insert, detailing information about the Influenza A Monovalent Vaccine, details risks far beyond Guillain-Barre Syndrome. For all of the details you can read the insert yourself in PDF form.

Luckily, those realizing that the immune system is the key to prevent sickness won’t fall for the hard-sell of vaccinations. Instead of receiving a flu vaccine, try supplementing with vitamin D, which is 800 percent more effective than vaccines at preventing the flu according to numeric figures from research that appears in the March, 2010 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Avoiding sugars, de-stressing the brain, and exercising are also great ways to reduce your chances of contracting a cold or the flu.

If you already fell into the trap of receiving the 1 percent effective flu vaccine, don’t worry. There are measures you can take before and after receiving a vaccine to help block the immune response and therefore protect yourself from vaccine damage.

    If you're going to run for office again, this was a good idea:

    This not so much:

    Understand the issue, understand what is at stake and take an appropriate stand.

    Your political future is at stake. Just ask those who have forced poisonous vaccines on children that resulted in all the damage.

    Vaccine choice gets you votes.

    Caving in to the vaccine criminals may get you campaign contributions, but also hopefully jail time.

    A lot of people are presently working on that last one for a substantial number.

    The flu shot is not false advertising and it does work.

    That is, it gives many of those who take it, the flu.

    There is no evidence that it prevents the flu, au contraire, instead many who get the vaccine actually get the flu within approximately 4-5 days of its being injected- the incubation period for the strain of flu injected. Moreover, the vaccine contains hazardous waste levels of mercury from the thimerosal included- thus getting a compromised cognition bump out of the process as well!

    With budget deficits out of control, the flu vaccine has become an effective soft-kill eugenics program to get rid of all those useless eaters (otherwise known as retirees on social security and medicare) at old age facilities across the country. The others, who do not fall ill with the flu, can be simply pushed under the bus after their cognition fails from the high levels of neurotoxic mercury in the shots.

    Think of the brilliance of the plan- force the injection of all those on public assistance with the flu vaccine and wait for many with compromised immune systems because of their age to come down with the flu. Those who are not killed have their cognition so compromised they'll agree to let you injection the next time. All you have to do is provide a body bag. Budget deficit solved.

    And, of course, you have any number of reputable organizations facilitating this wonderful program.

    Can't do any better than that!
