Health system TriHealth had a message for 150 employees Wednesday: We really mean it this time.

The 150 workers who didn’t get the required flu shots by the Nov. 16 deadline received termination notices the day before Thanksgiving.

To keep their jobs, they need a flu shot by Dec. 3.

“The flu vaccine still is the best way to protect our employees and our patients against the flu,” spokesman Joe Kelley said.

Thimerosal ® ☠ mercury ☠ , don't be a Mad Hatter about it!

Did the Mad Hatter Have Mercury Poisoning?

The Mad Hatter may be crazy, but he wasn't mercury poison crazy. Oh no. Mercury poisoning has symptoms get much worse.

He may have had only a "trace." Perhaps, "a small amount?" Perhaps just the regulated dose per Center For Decease Control.

    A spoonful of mercury helps the medicine go down.
    ☠ Medicine go down.
    In a most 'cold killing way.'

"Center For Decease Control"

We are so dead.

there you go again! off with his head!

smile..

Tis only a trace of mercury. I beg of you....

Before the shot I took, I thought it was zero. Cockpit film reel. Identify friend or foe.

Link...

....takes me elsewhere so couldn't read the story.

Is this a private company? If so, they have every right to do this, just as each employee has a right to find work elsewhere.

Ah no even a private company

Ah no even a private company does not have the right to force you to medicate/inject poisons when you are not sick into your body as a condition of employment.

Class action law suite if they are smart!

Get Prepared!

Now that is extreme. In my place of work, healthcare providers

esp with direct contact with patients (I am, as clinic nurse) can refuse getting the fluvac, with signed written consent of refusal. However, one is required to wear surgical masks on county hospital premises, if you elect not to get the fluvac. This is the same policy as in my other per diem work (privately owned hospital).

Sadly, I reluctantly (for a long time), submitted to one. I was one of the last holdouts in the hospital. Honestly, I just simply do not like to wear a mask, day in/day out the whole time at work.

Btw, you'd be surprised with the level of opposition to the fluvac...among my fellow rank & file healthcare provider co-workers. Several are "forced" as well to get one.

I don't get it...

if everyone ELSE is vaccinated...why do YOU need to wear a mask? How could you either give or receive the influenza virus? I mean...vaccines work...don't they?

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

It's called "Herd immunity"

If the majority of the herd are vaccinated, you are correct, the few who are not are unlikely to acquire the disease the vaccine is intended to prevent. Hospitals, cannot mandate their patients become vaccinated so, they have no control over the "herd". Patients are part of the herd as well since helath care workers and patients are all in the same facility at one time.

I actually was working per diem at this company, Tri-Health through an agency and won't be returning as I did not receive my flu vaccine this year. I live in the suburbs of Cincinnati. I have not done so as I am having some other health issues and did not want to complicate my situation in any way on lab tests, developing even a mild response/reaction etc. Therefore, I am presently looking for another part time nursing job. Even though I teach nursing at a well known 4 year college, I am not making enough money to afford my standard of living without a second job. Nursing faculty do not make squat.

It's simply applying the work practice of "Standard Precautions"

for all practical purposes in daily living, and that is...assume everyone is "infected". This applies to everyone, regardless of their perceived or confirmed infectious status.

Its only a matter of

Its only a matter of time...they will get us all in stages.

Consider what type of healthcare provider will be on the job.

Anyone who questions Pharma will be drummed out of healthcare. Your Obamacare will cover only the "care" that can be gotten from Pharmazombies.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Kinda like Evolution Zombies?

...and Adam and Eve Zombies...

Freakin' "science" and "religion"...eyes roll...

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

☠ Flu vaccine ☠ Healthy prevention or harmful chemicals?

By Greta McClain. Sept. 11, 2012 in Health [We Trust]

Flu Vaccine: [Flu season?] What we do not hear about are the potential hazards ingredients of the vaccine can cause. According to the Center for Disease Control, the number one recommended vaccine for 2012 is Fluarix. The ingredients in Fluarix are sodium deoxycholate, formaldehyde, octoxynol-10, α-tocopheryl hydrogen succinate, polysorbate 80, hydrocortisone, gentamicin sulfate, and ovalbumin. Sodium Deoxycholate – Pierce Protein Biology Products says this is a water-soluble, bile-acid, ionic detergent commonly used in protein methods.

Formaldehyde – The National Cancer Institute describes formaldehyde as a colorless, flammable, strong-smelling chemical that is used in building materials and to produce many household products. In 1987, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classified formaldehyde as a probable human carcinogen. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified formaldehyde as a human carcinogen . In 2011, the National Toxicology Program 12th Report on Carcingoens said formaldehyde is a known human carcinogen...

Don't Forget Thimerosal

What is Thimerosal?

Thimerosal is a mercury-based preservative that has been used for decades in the United States in multi-dose vials (vials containing more than one dose) of some vaccines to prevent the growth of germs, bacteria and fungi, that can contaminate them.

What are preservatives and why are they sometimes used in vaccines?

Preservatives have been used in vaccines for more than 70 years and are added to vaccines to prevent the growth of bacteria or fungi that could possibly make the vaccine in multi-dose vials unsafe. This may occur when a syringe needle enters a vial as a vaccine is being prepared for administration. Contamination by germs in a vaccine could cause serious infections.

Do the 2012-2013 seasonal flu vaccines contain thimerosal?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved several formulations of the seasonal flu vaccine, including multi-dose vials and single-dose units. (See Table of Approved Influenza Vaccines for the U.S. 2012–2013 Season.) Since seasonal influenza vaccine is produced in large quantities for annual immunization campaigns, some of the vaccine is produced in multi-dose vials, and contains thimerosal to safeguard against possible contamination of the vial once it is opened.

The single-dose units are made without thimerosal as a preservative because they are intended to be opened and used only once.

Additionally, the live-attenuated version of the vaccine (the nasal spray vaccine), is produced in single-dose units and does not contain thimerosal.

Is thimerosal being used in other vaccines?

Since 2001, no new vaccine licensed by FDA for use in children has contained thimerosal as a preservative, and all vaccines routinely recommended by CDC for children younger than 6 years of age have been thimerosal-free, or contain only trace amounts of thimerosal, except for multi-dose formulations of influenza vaccine. The most recent and rigorous scientific research does not support the argument that thimerosal-containing vaccines are harmful. However, CDC and FDA continually evaluate new scientific information about the safety of vaccines.

Is thimerosal in vaccines safe?

Yes. There is a large body of scientific evidence on the safety of thimerosal. Data from several studies show the low doses of thimerosal in vaccines do not cause harm, and are only associated with minor local injection site reactions like redness and swelling at the injection site.

Three U.S. health agencies (The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH)) have reviewed the published research on thimerosal and found it to be a safe product to use in vaccines. Three independent organizations [The National Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Medicine, Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)] reviewed the published research and also found thimerosal to be a safe product to use in vaccines. The medical community supports the use of thimerosal in influenza vaccines to protect against potential bacterial contamination of multi-dose vials.

Is thimerosal in vaccines linked to autism?

Numerous studies have found no association between thimerosal exposure and autism. CDC places a high priority on vaccine safety, surveillance, and research. CDC is aware that the presence of the preservative thimerosal in vaccines and allegations of a relationship to autism have raised public concerns. These concerns have made decisions surrounding vaccinations confusing and difficult for some people. Since 2001, no new vaccine licensed by FDA for use in children has contained thimerosal as a preservative and all vaccines routinely recommended by CDC for children younger than 6 years of age have been thimerosal-free, or contain only trace amounts of thimerosal, except for some formulations of influenza vaccine.

Unfortunately, reductions in the numbers of children identified with autism have not been observed indicating that the cause of autism is not related to a single exposure such as thimerosal.

Thimerosal ® ☠ mercury ☠ , don't lose your mind w/o it.

Thimerosal ® is 49% a ☠ mercury ☠ compound.

Disclaimer: Mark Twain (1835-1910-To be continued) is unlicensed. His river pilot's license went delinquent in 1862. Caution advised. Daily Paul

CDC: Observe the statistic. Ignore the obvious. Convey orders.

Thimerosal ® is 49% a ☠ mercury ☠ compound. The obvious fact is mercury is deadly poison. This obvious fact has been known for well over 3 centuries. To claim a small amount is no concern is folly. Multply a "small amount" times every mercury-laced injection... flu other-un-wise... Mercury poisoning adds up. It is cumulative.

Mercury is used in vaccines to prevent the growth of germs, bacteria and fungi ☠ kill living things... ☠

There is no "FDA minimum daily requirement. Zero.

Printer-That-Be: Nurses,ignore Hippocratic Oath. Obey!

Big pharma speaks...

Big pharma speaks and the sheeple bow and surrender. I used to not really believe in true evil but I am "evolving" as the liberals say.
