I am a bit torn on the issue. Personally, I do not subscribe to the whole "the government is trying to kill us off with biowarfare" line. It just
does not make sense because all survivors (and there will still be millions) would dismantle the ranks of TPTB so fast if this vaccine were
It is not the M.O. of TPTB.
If anything, the vaccines are just padding pockets of special people - maybe for favors later down the line.
Anyway, back to this mandatory vaccination for healthcare workers....
I fully expect mandatory vaccinations to healthcare workers. These are the very people that will be treating those with the flu, no?
How do you feel about mandatory vaccinations to measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis and varicella?
Do you find it unconstitutional that a surgeon must scrub in before performing surgery? It is mandatory you know.
How would you feel if you went to the hospital after a truck accident and the attending physician infected you with the flu and because of that flu
you had complications which killed you?
Let's just postulate for a second here that the vaccine is being developed in good faith and actually may result in a lower chance of communicating
the virus... I know, crazy talk on ATS, but let's just go with this for a second:
1. The vaccine can prevent the virus
2. The CDC is expecting a higher incidence of cases this year
3. The new strain is more communicable than traditional flu
4. Hospitals have the means to provide vaccinations to healthcare workers
5. Doctors are not vaccinated because of rumors and fear-mongering
The result would be that if the virus ended up spreading as expected, hospitals would close (low staff counts, increased communicability, increased
complications) and the death tolls would increase also leading to more deaths and complications in patients not even there for the flu.
Is it not their job to do whatever possible to mitigate the chances of the aforementioned scenario?
Now, I agree that they need to get their heads on straight and do a little better in informing the public here. There is a LOT of fear mongering on
the issue, and not enough EDUCATION being done on the part of health and human services.
HHS: Quit telling people how to sneeze and publish meaningful information on the current vaccination (including adjuvants and historical data)
Lack of real information regarding the vaccine to inform the public and mitigate fears is what is causing this whole mess. We as citizens are correct
to be concerned but the hospitals are stuck in a jam. They are supposed to do whatever possible to prevent a healthcare meltdown while the HHS and
vaccine makers are too busy trying to make money instead of inform the people.
