Nurses Fired For Refusing Flu Shot!

Is this crazy or what? Six nurses and other employees at a hospital in Indiana are out of jobs after refusing the flu shot.
The parent company of Goshen Hospital had made the vaccine mandatory, but hospice nurse Sue Schrock was among a handful of employees who filed appeals asking not to get the shot for religious reasons, South Bend TV station WSBT reported.

"I just feel like it's a toxin that I don't want in my body," she told the station. "There are side effects with that. There are no guarantees that it's even going to protect you."

Oncology nurse Joyce Gingerich fought the same battle for similar reasons.

The hospital denied their initial appeals and a second filed in November.

Hospital spokeswoman Melanie McDonald told WSBT that a committee reviewed each religious appeal according to Equal Employment Opportunity guidelines.

"If it were religious beliefs as defined by the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, they would not have been terminated," she said. "Sometimes there can be a little bit of gray area and people who have very personally held beliefs will present those as religious opportunities for exemption."

My wife to get one

She is a nurse.
I do not see a problem with an employer requiring an employee to get a vaccine.

Mandatory Vaccines Halted in NY After Goldman Sach Connection

Albany, NY - Oct 23, 2009. NYS State Health Commisioner Dr. Richard Daines has suspended the controversial mandatory influenza immunization requirement for New York health care workers, citing a shortage of vaccine supplies as the main reason. The halt in the regulation also comes a day after popular upstate NY WGY radio personality Al Roney exposed the connection of Linda Daines, Commissioner Daines's wife, as a manager of private client services of Wall Street finance firm Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs was the largest shareholder and brokered a 2007 $15 billion sale of the vaccine giant MedImmune. Roney called upon his listeners to contact NY State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to open an investigation of a potential conflict of interest between the mandatory vaccine regulation for over 500,000 NY healthcare workers and potential profit for Goldman Sachs.

as usual

Follow the money! It affects much of the behavior of health care politicians, doctors included. Heck, no one cares about the conflict of interest, anyway.

But, in deference to that, I would always take mine, since my exposure was so high, as a practicing physician. It was for my own protection. I could see it, for oncological nurse, since flu could kill a cancer patient, just like it could transplant patients. Terminal hospice patients, not so much. They can choose the profession they would prefer that would not endanger patients. Just saying! Should be easy to fix things up!

Flu can, also, occasionally, kill a normal person, but very rarely. At least equal to, the side effect problem be very slight. But, who wants side effects? Now, it's a problem, indeed!

I am happy to see private

I am happy to see private regulation. Rather than government regulation. I support a company's right to choose who they want to hire/fire and for any reason they want. In the free market, the best ideas win.

I also am pleased these nurses stood up for themselves. If everyone were as strong, then we would never have reason to complain. We could band together with our like minded friends and boycott anything we didn't like. But most people are too weak. They allow their banks to steal from them, and remain a customer... etc.

Should we

Contact the hospital and let them know our thoughts? This should not go unchallenged.

Who their parent company is. They tried this in Ny but come to find out someone on the hopital board had investments in vaccine companies.

Where are all of the Constitutional lawyers? Class action?

The action taken by this hospital stinks. There has always been a waver form available and a mask that could be worn in lieu of taking this ineffective "vaccine" from hell. Are mandatory gun confiscations and FEMA Camp entry tickets still so far away?

First it is the hospital food..

Then it is this. This is absolutely from the pit of hell.


First the Nurses then the Doctors then

the patients. They lay claim to your body. The urin tests is the same way you are forced to submit to immorality or you cant work for the demons.


You got to make tough decissions

Is your health more important than being a corporate false debt slave and recieving fiat compounding debt issue FRN's as payment for your submission. There are better ways of getting food and shelter than buying it from corporate stores with FRN's.


If an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots

his/her chance of developing Alzheimer's Disease or dementia is 10 times greater than if they had 1, two or no shots." The gradual mercury and aluminum buildup in the brain causes cognitive dysfunction. Of course these studies are being repressed. WHY? http://suewidemark.freeservers.com/flushot-alzheimers.htm

As a nurse in Canada I guarantee that the health care system has become dangerous. The hospitals are full of SUPER BUGS from overuse of antibiotics. Bladder and bowel super-bug infections are epidemic. Every patient has about 4 pages of drugs they are taking every day, 3 or 4 times a day. MONEY MONEY MONEY for the ruthless PHARMO industry. The nurses spend their days pushing around the MED cart and then charting the meds they gave. There is NO TIME to give common sense CARE. It is all about PILLS. People are left sitting in wheel chairs or beds getting bed sores. Oh, and there is much more. Welcome to the HELL care system - Obamacare.

I know! yesterday I tried

I know! yesterday I tried telling this older woman, that taxes were unconstitutional! she starts screaming at me, telling me I dont know what im talking about and we need taxes for the roads n schools,and blah,blah,blah, blah. I tried teaching her about the consititution and the founding fathers, she didnt want to hear none of that lol. I tried explaining in free soceity Health care would be so much better, especially with some old fashion competition. Idk I tried, I really did.

Good work

Obviously the woman is clearly confused.



Apparently this word's got to get out a lot more.


There are waivers available on line that anyone who intends on jabbing ya MUST SIGN. Get one print it out.

IT basically makes em vouch for the product as being 100% safe and good for you. You can hold the 'jabber' and possibly the entire establishment accountable ($$$) if the wavier is worded properly.

IF these nurses would of just done this they could of got em EITHER WAY, i.e. shot or no shot, THEY WIN.

The waiver is good for students too!

Where are the Womens Groups

Like NOW ??? They were all so vocal in the past when it came to what a woman could and could not do with her body.

This ensures no "awake" nurses in any hospitals.

Tidy, no? Just as Obamacare kicks in, nurses who question Pharma are kicked out.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Man, I didnt even think about

Man, I didnt even think about that! freaken Obamacare!!!

I wonder..

is this stipulated anywhere in the AHCA?

There were

about 150 people fired from a hospital network in Cincinnati for refusing the Big Pharma cocktail as well this fall. APIC members boast about blackmailing people with their livlihood in order to forcibly shoot the Big Pharma coctails into their bodies.
Of course, the PATIENTS they care for have the right to refuse ANY medical treatment and the "vaccination" status of visitors to facilities is always unknown.
But healthcare workers are the "danger".

This is probably how it's

This is probably how it's going to be, with every job in the future! you either get the damn shot or leave! it's so sick and immoral, that im truly at a lost for words.
