CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Charleston Area Medical Center employees who do not get the seasonal flu vaccine by the end of the day Friday are going to lose their jobs.

“The vaccine is a condition of employment” and people who do not get the vaccine will be fired, CAMC spokesman Dale Witte said.

Anyone who is not vaccinated by the end of the day Friday will not be allowed to work, Witte said.

“If they are scheduled to work, they will be taken off the schedule until the [human resources] folks and others go over the list to make sure it’s accurate,” he said. “Then it will be termination.”

BTC HUMOR- There seems to be a vacuum demand for people who want H1N1 vaccines and can’t get them. Tyson Eberly sent over this really great video featured during the debut of his local cable access program for some creative problem solving.

BTC – A preface to this piece of super creepy propaganda, is that Spain has a history of being on board to make internal chipping look cool. Ever since Verichip introduced what I call a destabilization agent of personal boundaries, much less sovereignty, of a RFID chip contained in a rice sized transparent case Bar”TH”elona discos have made it an exclusive way to “get in”.

Imagine..after an initial elite Spanish club introduction, someone possibly ushered in Raytheon’s Spanish global defense corporation to partner up with Verichip’s technology for patient identification.
They were thinking along the proposed lines of the following video:

I thought critically today about the nuances behind a glucose chip to assist less vigilant diabetics when it comes to limiting driving impairment. If you get your free marketeer hat on you will see what is good for one diabetic is not necessarily the best for all diabetics.
Healthcare decisions are often one of the last battles for privacy while someone is still alive. Decisions about allowing glucose/internal GPS system to be imported into your body should be a private decision. Ethically, there are a few closest to you that may count as Power of Attorney in the event of something bad happening. This is in contrast to a public-private decision where a government corporation makes a healthcare decision about what happens to you and your body without your consent.
So what happens when you get a market flush of any trend? You get copy cats and market raiders.
A RUN ON PIG FLU DISASTER CAPITAL
The FDA/FTC has released an importable fraud widget to report anyone who is making money off H1N1 treatments besides the U.S. government’s no-bid buddies.

Consumers are urged to purchase and consume only FDA-approved or authorized medical products to diagnose, treat, prevent, or cure infections caused by the H1N1 virus. Consumers also are urged to contact their health care provider if they have any questions or concerns about medical products or personal protective equipment.”

As of right now – Verichip and RECEPTORS LLC do not have FDA approval to diagnose Swine Flu, but will be testing their proof of concept HERE:

October 22, 2009, in New York to unveil details of their virus triage detection system for the H1N1 virus and Phase II development of an in vivo glucose-sensing RFID microchip. The companies will also provide a product demonstration of the virus triage detection system currently being developed.

The event will take place at the Grand Hyatt at 4:30 p.m. ET and feature a presentation by Robert E. Carlson, Ph.D., President and Chief Science Officer of RECEPTORS LLC, and an expert in the field of proteomics and the development of artificial receptors.
Parties interested in attending the New York event should contact Allison Tomek at (561) 805-8008 or at atomek@verichipcorp.com

A plan that officials at Seattle’s Virginia Mason Medical Center had hoped would improve patient safety and save lives has landed them in some legal hot water instead.

The Washington State Nurses Assn., on behalf of the hospital’s 500 nurses, filed a petition in federal court Oct. 1, seeking an injunction to stop implementation of the hospital’s new policy of mandatory flu shots for all employees.

“Nurses feel they don’t have a choice between getting a shot or leaving Virginia Mason,” said WSNA spokeswoman Anne Tan Piazza. “The WSNA absolutely supports flu vaccinations and we are well aware of their benefits, but we think the approach to compliance is through education and not through threats of termination.”

Virginia Mason spokeswoman Kim Davis said education efforts had achieved a vaccination rate of about 55%, which is significantly higher than the 38% national rate for health care workers, but the hospital is shooting for 100%.

This week on Waking Up Orwell we will be speaking LIVE with Jim Turner, a Washington attorney representing Citizens for Health, an organization suing the FDA for approving the H1N1 swine flu vaccines to be administered before they were properly tested.


Citizens for Health is very involved with actions in New York to address the voluntary- compulsory policy requiring health care workers to take the Swine Flu vaccine as a condition of their employment.

Nurses speak about losing their jobs to a swine flu vaccine mandate.

c/o The NewAmerican

Health freedom attorney Jim Turner, of Citizens for Health, is filing a lawsuit in Washington, D.C., today, hoping to halt the distribution of the swine flu vaccine in America. What prompted his civil action is the ruling that licensed healthcare workers in New York State must receive the vaccine or lose their jobs.

Turner’s lawsuit, the plaintiffs for which are Dr. Gary Null and other healthcare workers of New York State, will seek an injunction against the Food and Drug Administration from approving the vaccine for general distribution. “And the core of the argument,” Turner told the Natural News Talk Hour Thursday evening, “is that they have not done the proper safety and efficacy tests on the vaccine to allow it to be released at this time.”

He explained further, “The FDA is required by law to establish that a vaccine is safe and effective before it can be given to the public. We are arguing that they did not establish that the vaccine was effective, and did not establish that it was safe. They are trying to get it on the market by a waiver.” ::: MORE HERE:::

Key amendments regarding civil liberty leads up to House approval, vote 113-36


“[House Chairman] Sanchez said the House version of the bill eliminates some of the more contentious parts approved in April by the Senate including sections placing restrictions on the right to public assembly and allowing the arrest of individuals without warrant.

The Senate bill would also allow the government to mandate vaccinations or place into isolation anyone who refused to be vaccinated — a provision that was eliminated from the House version.”



BOSTON –Public health officials would have the power to isolate individuals and order quarantines to contain the outbreak of serious contagious diseases under a bill approved by the Massachusetts House on Thursday.

Supporters say that while the bill has been in the works for years, the emergence of swine flu shows the importance of having laws on the books to deal with public health crises. Critics say the bill gives the government too much power.

The bill, approved by a 113-36 vote, is designed to clarify the authority of government and the rights of citizens in the case of a public health crisis. Backers say under existing law there are few checks on the power of government once the governor declares a health emergency.

“The bill strikes that balance between protecting the community in the case of an emergency but also protecting the civil liberties of individuals,” said Rep. Jeffrey Sanchez, D-Boston, House chairman of the Committee on Public Health.

Sanchez said the House version of the bill eliminates some of the more contentious parts approved in April by the Senate including sections placing restrictions on the right to public assembly and allowing the arrest of individuals without warrant.

The Senate bill would also allow the government to mandate vaccinations or place into isolation anyone who refused to be vaccinated — a provision that was eliminated from the House version.

“This bill does not change the law to force people to be vaccinated,” Sanchez said.

The bill spells out the authority of the public health commissioner once an emergency is declared — including the power to force the evacuation of public buildings and order health care facilities to provide services to those sickened.

The bill would also let the commissioner limit public access to contaminated areas, adopt measures to safely dispose of infection waste, and store and distribute antitoxins, serums, vaccines and antibiotics.

One of the most contentious parts of the bill would give public health officials the authority to force individuals or groups into isolation or quarantine when there is “reasonable cause to believe that a disease or condition dangerous to the public health exists or may exist or that there is an immediate risk of an outbreak.”

The isolation or quarantine order can be made orally as long as it is followed by a written order. The bill allows those in quarantine to appeal to a Superior Court judge. It also bars employers from firing workers because of a quarantine order.

Rep. Todd Smola, R-Palmer, said he heard from dozens of constituents worried about the Senate version of the bill.

He said there wasn’t enough time to study the changes in the House version, which he said still gives too much power to the commissioner of public health.

“People have enough concerns right now relative to government control invading in their personal space and in their personal lives,” he said.

Other parts of the bill are designed to send up early warning signs of a potential outbreak, including requiring pharmacists to report increased prescription rates or unusual types of prescriptions.

Public health officials would also be allowed to obtain medical records to try to investigate or monitor an outbreak, provided that the medical records remain confidential.

The public health emergency would end whenever the governor says it is over or 90 days after it was first declared, whichever comes first.

The compromise version of both bills must now be worked out.
