A national organization of physicians in all health specialties objects to mandatory immunization of healthcare workers. That organization is the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.
The rationale they give is that fewer than half of all U.S. healthcare workers choose to be vaccinated for annual influenza. What does that say? And they are pushing vaccines on the unsuspecting healthcare consumer whom they should be protecting, especially IF vaccines are supposed to protect against spreading infectious diseases. Humbug!
Quoting from the AAPS letter to Colorado Health Officials, this is rather ‘scandalous’ coming from such a prestigious healthcare workers association,
In the age of “evidence-based medicine,” it is shocking that there is so little evidence that the influenza vaccination program is effective.
There it is folks! So why are they pushing flu vaccinations on pregnant women, infants, toddlers, teens, adults, and senior citizens?
Please read the link provided above, print it, save copies for future use, and then give it to anyone who says you or your kids have to be vaccinated for influenza. This is your reason: there is so little evidence that the influenza vaccination program is effective.
Here’s the clincher:
AAPS recommends that vaccine and relevant information be made conveniently available to all who wish to receive it, and that the right of Americans to make their own medical decisions should be respected. [Emphasis added]
This is what we at VacTruth have been saying all along. Finally we can agree with healthcare workers who promote and support that fundamental right to self-determination. Please circulate this bulletin.
