Protesters rally against swine flu vaccine

55

A few hundred health-care workers and concerned citizens are protesting at the state Capitol today against mandatory swine flu vaccinations. Nurses from the Poughkeepsie area, Rochester region and other parts of New York said they don’t think they should be forced to get a vaccine that has been fast-tracked and that they don’t believe has been tested appropriately as a condition of keeping their jobs.
   In previous years, health-care workers were urged but not required to get flu shots each winter season. But this year, with the expected return of the swine-flu virus, they are being required to get both seasonal flu and H1N1 vaccines. The swine-flu vaccines are expected to hit the market in the coming weeks.
   Many protesters are carrying home-made signs with sayings like, “We’re not lab rats” and “No flu shot no job?”

  1. It is now Jan. 2010 and the swine flu epidemic did not materialize due to people taking precautions. It is still not proven nor are the numbers of swine flu cases accurately portrayed by the CDC, that the vaccine had any effect. There is also no scientific data on the adverse effects long term for the swine vaccine. A healthier public will overcome this flu bug not more toxic vaccines. Its a plain and simple truth that if you put garbage into your body no matter by what method, you will get a very toxic result that could be permanently damaging to yours or your unborn babies health.
    Think -long term, and take your vitamin C and D, they are anti-viral. It is interesting that there are line ups in Serbia and China for garlic, instead of vaccines. What does that tell you?

  2. The vaccination program turned out to be a mistake. Reports soon surfaced about the vaccine causing a neuromuscular disorder called Guillain-Barré syndrome, and vaccinations were halted about two months after they began. One million Americans never died.
