Is Mandatory Vaccination on the Horizon Amid Measles Outbreak?

Is Mandatory Vaccination on the Horizon Amid Measles Outbreak?
Science & Medicine

Due to the recent measles outbreak and panic following, the HHS is accepting “public comment” on its Draft National Adult Immunization Plan (NAIP) until March 9, 2015. Under the NAIP, all adult American citizens will be urged to receive current and retroactive vaccination regimens that may amount to several dozen “shots” during their “catch-up” phase.

The measles outbreak in California has prompted the U.S. Federal Government to significantly increase the immunization rate of every adult American. Such a move is certain to galvanize the nationwide anti-vaccination movement.

Though there is much to the argument against vaccines, a rumble will surface particularly because most flu vaccines do not even address the most current strains of the influenza virus. Even many healthcare workers have rejected the annual shots.  What’s more, individuals who have received the flu shots have reported flu-like symptoms. In some instances, they have come down with a full-blown case of the flu.

“The proposed US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) policy will be implemented alongside the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act (ACA), thereby becoming a standard component of US national healthcare policy.”

As the preceding quote indicates, this government adult immunization initiative (NAIP) will be integrated within Obamacare. Making annual flu shots and other immunizations compulsory for adults using the Affordable Care Act will have a profound effect on the freedom of health choice guaranteed by the Constitution.

Pharmaceutical Companies Join Forces with the Department of Health and Human Services

That the NAIP was made available to the citizens for public comment less than one month after the first few cases of measles were reported in California and Utah has given many cause for concern. It is clear from the depth and the breadth of the NAIP draft that it has been in the works for quite some time.

It therefore gives the appearance that the federal government was waiting for an opportunity to spring it on the American people. Some alternative health commentators have questioned whether that opportunity was actually created by ardent pro-vaccine elements within the government or Big Pharma.

Some of the language of the NAIP seems to give away its true authors.  For example one of the headings reads as follows:

“Increase community demand for adult immunizations.”

Only a for-profit pharmaceutical company would use such terminology as “Increase community demand.” The government has been giving away free flu shots for many years now. How many other health care services are there which are provided completely free of charge?

This whole initiative and the rush for public comment is quite similar to the way that Obamacare was foisted on the nation without bipartisan support. The lack of proper due diligence on the part of the U.S Government has been especially disconcerting for those who have had adverse reactions to inoculations in the past. The fact that the yearly flu vaccines are usually deficient in counteracting the current infectious strains of influenza indicates another inherent flaw in the immunization program.

Increasingly, health advocates have complained that the commercial side to the government-industry relationship is driving this new mandatory adult immunization program. In the absence of sufficient testing to determine the true efficacy of the various immunization regimens, compulsory programs should not even be under consideration.  Many parents across the nation have already expressed their misgivings with forced childhood vaccination programs.

There is also the matter of proven toxic chemicals and heavy metals which are contained in some vaccines. The worst of these ingredients include mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, and squalene.  A more comprehensive listing of both unsafe and toxic ingredients can be acquired from those medical organizations that administer the vaccine.

Certainly every recipient ought to know what is being injected into their bloodstream before they avail themselves to such an invasive and potentially dangerous procedure. It is also highly recommended that each person understands the allergic responses and/or adverse reactions that flu shots can produce. The same goes for any other adult immunization schedule.
