Healthcare Workers: How to Refuse Mandatory Vaccines and Not Get Fired

FEBRUARY 28, 2012 · 163 COMMENTS

At our local Weston A. Price chapter meeting last week, a woman named Becky came up to reintroduce herself.  A while back she told me that the hospital she works for was now making flu shots mandatory, and she didn’t know what to do.  She wanted to let me know how that all turned out — you’ll be shocked!

BY THE WAY – Here’s a newer post to check out after this one:  Why One Man is Choosing the Mask and another:  Healthcare Workers – How to Avoid the Flu Shot and Not Get Fired (Part 2)

You’ll be amazed at how well written this letter is and how well thought out Becky’s arguments are.

Here’s Becky’s letter to the higher-ups at the hospital:

(Full name withheld), RN 

To whom it may concern:

I am writing to formally defend my decision to decline the influenza vaccination. I have made this decision based on strong moral and ethical convictions that are supported by my religious beliefs, medical research and legal precedent. 

Medical research indicates that the efficacy of the influenza vaccination is grossly exaggerated (1).

 The British Medical Journal has questioned the validity of studies claiming efficacy and stated that “evidence from systemic reviews shows that inactivated vaccines have little or no effect on the effects measured.” (2)

 Another journal has proven influenza vaccinations have not changed the amount of doctor visits or hospitalizations in children (3,4,5), and another shows that vaccinations have not impacted the mortality rate of the elderly population. (6,7)

 There is also a lack of supporting evidence to show that vaccinating healthcare workers prevents influenza transmission. (8)

 I believe that these vaccinations are providing a false sense of security and therefore putting our patients at risk. 

 An even greater risk exists for those that receive the vaccination. The CDC lists the following as being found in the influenza vaccination: Neomycin, Polymyxin B, formaldehyde or formalin,  thimerosal, embryonated chicken eggs, egg albumin, gelatin, Gentamycin, Polyoxyethylene 9-10 Nonyl Phenol (Triton N-101, Octoxynol 9), chick kidney cells and Taurodeoxychoalate. (9)

 Many of these are known carcinogens and detergents that have unknown effects on the human body. Chronic over exposure to antibiotics has also proven to be detrimental to overall health. (10)

  Some of the potential side effects from the vaccination include anaphylaxis, allergic asthma, redness and discomfort at the injection site, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, vasculitis, body aches, paresthesia, neuopathy, seizure, facial palsy, facial paresis, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, headache, sore throat, muscle aches, cough, chills, fever, encephalitis and meningitis. (11)

 Thimerosal has been shown to potentially increase the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease, brain damage and nervous system injury. (12,13,14)

This is especially alarming to me as my grandfather passed away at the beginning of the year as a result of Alzheimer’s Disease. Package inserts also state that the vaccination/mist “has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential or its potential to impair fertility.” This clearly states then that very little is known about the long-term health effects of receiving this vaccination. There is also no guarantee of protection from influenza or potential temporary or permanent injury or even death. 

I believe that vaccination is an invasive medical procedure and based on the above, is an experimental procedure. While I support the hospital’s desire to maintain safety for both patients and staff, I cannot support the use of mandatory vaccinations to achieve this goal. The mandatory administration of this is in direct violation of the Nuremberg Code which states in article 1 that consent should be voluntary and allow for “free power of choice without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of  constraint or coercion.” Article 6 states, “the degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.” And article 9, “During the course of the experiment the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end if he has reached the physical or mental state where continuation of the experiment seems to him to be impossible.” (15)

As a Christian I believe I am to treat my body with respect as it is a gift from God (see 2 Corinthians 7:1 and 1 Corinthians 6:19 and 20). I believe that destroying life and knowingly injecting myself with toxins is a contradiction to my beliefs and unacceptable. Health is of great importance to me and something that I do not take lightly. I choose to maintain my health by following The Weston A. Price Foundation’s recommendations on nutrition. 916)

 I also adhere to regular exercise, proper vitamin D intake (17), adequate rest and stress management, and appropriate preventative health care. My desire is to continue to do the above and to partner with (hospital name withheld) in providing excellent patient care.

Sincerely,

(Full name withheld), RN           (See references below.)

SUCCESS!

Becky was able to keep her job and not get the flu vaccine, pretty impressive, huh?!

A note from from Becky to all of you, my readers:

I was originally supposed to go before a committee from the hospital and defend my position, but we were unable to find a time that worked for all of us.  The way the mandate is presented to the employees makes it seem as though the only exemptions they allow are medically based, and that even those are rare exemptions. You can be sure they don’t like to heavily advertise the fact that you can stand up for yourself and not follow their mandates. So in the end I presented this to the HR representative from the committee, who then brought it back to the committee and then contacted me. The meeting I had with him went well because I had prepared this calmly and rationally the night before, so if anyone is asking advice on how to approach a situation like this (besides with lots of prayer), clearly stated knowledge is the best thing you can have. The other thing that I learned from this is not only to arm yourself with knowledge, but to be consistent. That’s what the committee was looking for; they wanted to know that I hadn’t just grabbed this off the internet because it sounded like it might work. I want to encourage people that read this letter to make it their own. Please, feel free to use the ideas and references, but make sure it means something to you and put it into your own words. The chance of success will be better if there is palpable passion behind the words. And truly, for me, I wanted to know I had given it my all, even if I did lose my job.

An informational article about grain from Farmer’s Almanac

With so many of us trying to eat healthier while determining if the grains we are consuming are good for you; this article is for you.  If you enjoy this information, sign up at Farmer’s Almanac for their online newsletter.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Trying to get more whole grains in your diet? The surest way to know that you’re eating whole grains is to cook a dish containing the unadulterated whole grain yourself: an entrée made with brown rice, a side of hulled barley, a bowl of oatmeal, or bread baked with only whole grain flours.

There’s a lot of confusion, though, about what constitutes a whole grain. The 2014 Old Farmer’s Almanac is here to help by taking the guesswork out of identifying the different types of whole grains.

The Wholly Grail of Whole Grains

Berries (wheat, rye), groats (oats, buckwheat), and kernels(corn) are all terms for grains in whole seed form (minus the hull).

Grits are any coarsely ground whole or refined grain. (Cracked wheat and polenta are grits.)

Meals and flours are grains that have been ground; meal is generally considered the coarser one. “Refined” or “degerminated” means that part or all of the bran and germ have been removed.

Rolled or flaked grains are whole grains that have been cooked, rolled flat, and baked, losing minimal amounts of nutrients and fiber in the process. They are considered whole grains. Do not confuse them with dry-cereal flakes, which may or may not be 100 percent whole grain.

Wheat 14 Ways:

Bulgur is whole wheat berries that have been steamed, roasted, and crushed. It qualifies as a whole grain.

Couscous, not a grain but a form of wheat pasta, is available in both refined and whole grain forms.

Cracked wheat is simply coarsely crushed whole wheat berries. It qualifies as a whole grain but beware of products with “cracked wheat” as part of their name (“cracked-wheat bread”), which may contain only a small amount of cracked wheat, with the rest refined flour.

Cream of wheat, farina, and semolina are refined wheat products. Wheatena, a hot cereal product developed in 1879, is considered a whole grain.

Einkorn, emmer, farro, kamut, and spelt are ancient strains of wheat finding their way into modern specialty markets because of their unusual (and, some say, superior) cooking, flavor, or nutritional characteristics.

Triticale is a whole grain hybrid of wheat and rye.

Whole white wheat sounds like a contradiction, but it is a true whole grain. White wheats are albino species that lack the genes that give other wheats their brown color. White wheat has a milder flavor a bit closer to that of refined white flours.
