The Boston Globe reports


Massachusetts health authorities took the unprecedented step yesterday of deputizing dentists, paramedics, and pharmacists to help administer vaccines against both the seasonal flu and the novel swine strain expected to make a return visit in the fall.


This # is about to hit the fan.

This isn't good.

I don't think this is going to fly with a majority of people. I guess Mass. is going to be a testing ground for forced vaccines. That could be the spark.

I was watching FOX yesterday and a Doc. they had on there even said that there is no evidence that the swine flu is any more dangerous than the regular flu.

Hey you guys? "Deputize" just means to to appoint someone to act. In other words, they have given dentists, paramedics, and pharmacists the permission to give people vaccines instead of them having to go to the doctor.

It has nothing to do with law enforcement or making people take the vaccine.

Doesn't "Deputize" mean to authorize someone to perform the duties of a Law Enforcement Officer? Why deputize when it is only to give someone a shot? I know of lots of times when Health Clinics have been set up to give vaccinations during flu seasons but they never were "deputized".

Look it up. Or read the article linked in the OP.



“There’s a workforce issue, but there’s also a significant communication and education issue so that the public can clearly understand there’s a difference between the seasonal flu vaccine and then dose one and dose two of your H1N1 vaccine,’’ said Jim Blumenstock, an executive at the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials.

Hoping to bolster the army of health professionals capable of vaccinating patients, the state Public Health Council -an appointed body of doctors, consumer advocates, and policy specialists - voted unanimously yesterday to enlist medical workers not normally involved in flu immunization campaigns. That could add up to 21,000 volunteer dentists, pharmacists, and paramedics.

I grew up in Massachusetts...that state is turning into mini-China!

Nothing good comes out of that state. They sent me a back taxes due bill from 4 years ago. I believe I would never received it if they were not in a budget crisis...

And, the people (for the most part) up there are so sarcastic and bitter!!!!!
