[SaneVax: Flu vaccines are universally recommended despite all evidence indicating they are marginally effective at best and downright dangerous for some. What is wrong with this picture?]
By Dave Mihalovic
There’s something so magnificent about an idea whose time has come. The idea that as a population, we do not need toxic injections of anything in our bodies to prevent disease. More front-line workers, medical staff, nurses and hospital employees are saying no to vaccines more than ever reported. An overwhelming majority of pregnant women are also now refusing the jab over fears it will harm their fetus after scientific evidence has conclusively linked miscarriages to the flu vaccine.
Despite a marketing campaign for the jab and and flu-shot blitz in recent weeks, large percentages of hospital employees are refusing to be vaccinated.
The Ottawa Citizen reported that 43 per cent of the Ottawa Hospital’s 12,000 employees — including nurses and other front line staff — have not been vaccinated.
Although all managers are obliged to get the flu jab, the hospital cannot force the shot on other employees, 88 per cent of whom are unionized
The hospital’s unions now have specific language in their contracts forbidding management to force workers to get vaccinated.
In the past two months, at least 15 nurses and other hospital staffers in four states have been fired for refusing, and several others have resigned, according to affected workers, hospital authorities and published reports.
The Wichita Eagle reported that in Rhode Island, one of three states with tough penalties behind a mandatory vaccine policy for health care workers, more than 1,000 workers recently signed a petition opposing the policy, according to a labor union that has filed suit to end the regulation.
