As you may be aware, New York State just enacted an emergency regulation requiring that certain personnel working at medical centers receive the influenza vaccines, both seasonal and H1N1, as a condition of employment. This means that all .... employees who have direct contact with patients, and all staff who have regular contact with these employees, are required to receive the vaccine for both the seasonal flu and the H1N1 virus. If you are required to have annual TB testing (e.g., PPD skin testing), you are required to get the flu shots. No employee is exempt from this regulation unless he or she has formal written documentation of a medically valid reason for not receiving the vaccine from a licensed healthcare provider. All employees are strongly encouraged to get immunized as soon as possible and no later than November 30.

It has nothing to do with being afraid of the needle but more about the side affects of the vaccination and the fact that they patented the vaccine before the actual outbreak. I dont trust. During the Outbreak of Swine flu in the 1970 more ppl died from the vaccination then the actual Flu.

Did you not read my post?

Its not the government taking away your rights here, its your employer adding new terms to your employment contract. You have a choice, take the shot or quit.

he's basically saying he's scared that the shot will be more harmful than helpful, which I also fear because vaccine shots are known to cause different types of retardation and what not, but when it comes to the swine flu vaccination, people started to patent it before the outbreak started(or something like that) so I don't really trust it either. In your situation though dude, you should just take it since you are dealing with sick people and you shouldn't want to lose your job just for not wanting to take the shot. Just be sure to tell us if it fucks you up or anything. Hope that makes sense, and hope you don't die or lose your job.

Crazy. But then again, I can see why the hosp believes it's a necessary thing to do. They are scared of the propaganda and don't want an outbreak in their hospital...but i think it's all bs. Propaganda. They just want to gather even more personal information and inject you with poison to make people rich and to make you sick so you can keep going back.


Bush made money off war....I bet Obama's gonna make money off health insurance investments and other medical related stuff. Why's he pushing this so hard?

Search for a job elsewhere, then quit. Fuck that vaccine. It's just a tool for population reduction.

Since you said it's a NY state thing, find people from your hospital and others around the county and state who refuse to take the vaccine. Get hard, indisputable info and make a good argument against it. Power in numbers.

FUCK MY NIGGER DAD

That's crazy if true. They can't stand behind their product? That worries me. However, I heard on the news about some nasal spray that helps you from getting h1n1, but I don't know much about it. Prolly doesn't work.

You're taking a flu shot - don't be scared. Swine flu = influenza, but it's only "scary" because the media blew the FUCK out of it. However, I do agree that it's sketchy because the vaccine seems experimental..

Anyways, it seems like you're scared of the vaccine because of propaganda, so do yourself a favor and do some research.

christdawg, youre about as stupid as mothers who believe the MMR vaccine causes autism. this country puts so much effort into making sure you are healthy, and this is how you act? nevermind that our healthcare is in shambles...have you even considered how lucky you are to be living somewhere where vaccines are even available? youre pathetic.

yes, people die from vaccines, but only the severely immunocompromised do. but then again, if these people also caught the disease for which the vaccine prevents, they would probably die as well. think about that for a second.

you guys dont have any "good" knowledge about vaccines. there have been many botched studies that have been thoroughly disproved, though the hype still continues to live. this type of hype wont ever die because crazy white people and desperate parents want to find any way to blame someone else for their own misfortunes.

I have done research and I am not gonna throw caution to the wind when it comes to my body. Its the fucking flu im confident my body could fight it off if I was to even catch it. BTW the Swin Flu vaccin in the 70's cause more deaths then the actual Flu itself. I just find it weird that some shit that was clearly made in a lab now has a vaccine not even a year later and the patent for the vaccine was patented a year before the actual outbreak. I have received plenty of vaccinations prior to this so im not some anti vaccination nut but the research i have done on this one and the fact that its mandatory rubs me the wrong way.
