Hospital Employees Now Getting Threats
of Frozen Salaries For Refusing Vaccines
Employees at a hospital in Ohio have been told that their bonuses
will be cut and their salaries frozen should they refuse to be
vaccinated with both the seasonal flu shot and the H1N1 flu shot.
The Nationwide Childrens Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, has
instigated a mandate on all workers to receive the shots by the
end of October.
The threat of pay cuts was delivered in a hospital memo stating
that employees with medical or religious objections could opt
out, but that those who refuse the treatments will lose out on
pay raises or bonuses.
A senior Doctor at the hospital, Dennis Cunningham dismissed
claims that the program was extreme, and also attempted to counter
concerns that the vaccines contain mercury in the form of the
Multi-dose vials there will be a trace in there.
It acts as a preservative. No bacteria in there, and its
kept sterile. But the level is so low, it wouldnt cause
disease in humans, Cunningham claimed.
However, the Institute of Medicine recommended against the policy
of thimerosal containing vaccines in 2001.
Studies have shown a direct relationship between mercury in children's
vaccines and autism. Further studies have shown a decline in neurodevelopmental
disorders after the removal of thimerosal-containing vaccines.
The preservative has been banned or limited in Europe, Japan,
England and Russia. Furthermore, there are no reported instances
of autism amongst religious groups such as the Amish community
and very few instances are reported in the third world.
Autism was a practically unknown affliction some decades back,
but now one in every 150 children is affected.
Mercury is the second most toxic metal known to man behind Uranium.
Thimerosal is used in vaccines not because it is good for you,
but purely because it prevents vaccine contamination. Yet some
have questioned why thimerosal is even considered for vaccines
because there are obviously safer alternatives to preventing contamination.
Many believe the only reason it is still in vaccines is that
it allows substantial savings for pharmaceutical companies. Questions
also remain about how those companies conduct vaccine research
and how the government regulates them.
In other states, officials have suspended the limits on the mercury
preservative in H1N1 vaccines scheduled to be provided to children
and pregnant women, in a rush to mass vaccinate the population.
Last week we reported a on similar story out of Albany, New York,
where a daycare worker employed by Northeast Health was shocked
to be told by her boss that she would be fired if she refused
to take a seasonal swine flu shot on the spot.
Though New York is a focal point, with new State laws recently
passed mandating vaccination for health care workers, the same
scenario has since unfolded nationwide, with health workers across
the country now revolting in protest as more and more hospitals
and clinics are moving to instigate mandatory vaccination polices.
