Health Impact News Editor Comments
Last month (September 2014) the Massachusetts Nurses Association sued Brigham and Women’s Hospital over a new policy that required nurses to receive the annual flu vaccine as a condition for employment.
The nurses were, of course, criticized by the medical establishment. They were accused of putting their own interests above the needs of patients. Lynn Nicholas, president of the Massachusetts Hospital Association, stated that the nurses were: “putting a pet peeve of theirs above the safety and well-being of the patients they serve, their families, visitors to the hospital, and their colleagues.”
Pet peeve? Really?
When nurses all across the United States and Canada are willing to sacrifice their jobs and careers to avoid the annual flu shot, it is time to sit up and take notice. This is obviously something much more than a “pet peeve.”
Trish Powers, representing Brigham nurses in Boston fired back a comment that The Boston Globe published, titled Brigham nurses know flu vaccine can do harm.
Some excerpts from Trish Powers’ comments:
I AM proud to be a nurse at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The Globe article Thursday failed to explain the main reason that the Brigham nurses are opposed to a policy of mandatory flu vaccinations.
The flu vaccine is only 59 percent effective and carries with it serious health risks, which are not disclosed to those receiving it. As of November 2013, the Federal Adverse Events Reporting System has received 93,000 reports of reactions, hospitalizations, injuries and deaths following flu vaccinations. These include 1,080 deaths, 8,888 hospitalizations and 1,811 related disabilities. Nurses are more aware than the general public of this data, and many do not feel that the low effective rate of the vaccine warrants the health risk. This is so much more than the “pet peeve” described by the Massachusetts Hospital Association. (Source.)

Doctors and Nurses Threatened with Losing Their Jobs if They Speak Out Against the Flu Vaccine
In the video above, Julie Sterns, a registered nurse who has been practicing for 30 years, talks about the harm she has seen from the flu vaccine.
She explains how her own daughter, also a nurse, was pregnant last year with her first baby, and the first grandchild in their family. Her daughter was forced to get the flu vaccine, however, as a condition of her employment, even though she was pregnant.
Shortly after receiving the mandated flu vaccination, her daughter lost her baby. The vaccine inserts for the flu vaccine admit that they have never been tested for safety on pregnant women.
She also talks about how good doctors and nurses who challenge established medicine are pushed out of their jobs, and threatened with losing their pension if they speak out. She challenges them to come forward and speak the truth.
Flu Vaccine Fraud – Government Doctor and Scientist Speaks Out
In the video above, Dr. Mark Geier explains the fraud behind the flu vaccine. Dr. Geier is NOT anti-vaccine. He is an MD and has a PhD in genetics. He spent 10 years working at the National Institute of Health, and was a professor at Johns Hopkins University as a geneticist. He is also the author of over 150 peer-reviewed publications.
He worked on vaccine safety and efficacy for more than 30 years. He was one of four scientists that worked to replace the DTP vaccine, a vaccine that caused every child to become sick with a high fever at the time of vaccination, with the DTAP vaccine, which is a more purified vaccine and causes illness due to fever in only 3% of those vaccinated.
In the video above, he explains that the flu shot causes Guillain-BarrÃ© Syndrome, and that the flu shot is not very effective in preventing the flu. He also explains that the CDC does not follow the law for vaccines in requiring long-term safety testing for the influenza vaccine like they do with other vaccines, as it is impossible to test a vaccine that changes every year. So the flu vaccine is basically an experimental vaccine that they want to give out to 300 million people every year. There are also no studies showing the safety of giving the flu vaccine to the same person every single year. However, Dr. Geier points out that the CDC is in the business of distributing flu vaccines, because they represent 300 million doses per year, whereas all the childhood vaccines together only number 20 million.
Dr. Geier goes on to explain that flu is “the wrong thing to vaccinate against” because you have to keep re-vaccinating against it every year, unlike childhood infectious diseases, such as smallpox, that are only vaccinated for once. Dr. Geier points out how ridiculous it is spend billions of dollars on a vaccine that might, at its best, save about 50 lives a year, when there are far more serious problems causing death that are more worthy of that kind of expenditure.
