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.”

“You start with health-care workers but then expand that umbrella to make it mandatory for everybody,” said Lori Price of Citizens for Legitimate Government, a Bristol, Conn.-based group that opposes government expansion. “It’s all part of an encroachment on our liberties.”

NY health workers vaccination (VIDEO) – The trend toward mandatory H1N1 vaccinations for U.S. healthcare workers is meeting resistance from unions and anti-government groups, officials said.

Hundreds of thousands of nurses, doctors and other healthcare workers are being ordered to become vaccinated as the second wave of the H1N1 pandemic spreads this fall.

The trend is fueling rumors that the H1N1 vaccine may become mandatory for everyone, said Lori Price of Citizens for Legitimate Government, a Connecticut-based group that opposes government expans

“It’s all part of an encroachment on our liberties,” Price told The Wall Street Journal in a story published Saturday.

Hospital Corp. of America, with clinics and hospitals in 20 states, is requiring its 120,000 employees to be vaccinated and the state of New York is requiring all healthcare workers to get both seasonal and H1N1 flu shots.

Mandatory vaccination diverts attention from more effective infection-control methods, such as state-of-the-art masks, said Bill Borwegen, a occupational health and safety director of the Service Employees International Union. (c) UPI

BTC Exclusive
Most H1N1 flu vaccination will be made available sometime during October in the U.S.

We spoke with Bob Dwyer, a district coordinator and citizen advocate for the Liberty Preservation Association of Massachussetts (Mass LPA) to update us on the status of S.2028. The bill is currently still in the Ways and Means committee. MASS LPA is composed of grassroots citizen advocates who are confronting their local lawmakers about the Constitutionality of S.2028. We asked him about his organization’s recent actions and the effort to stop Massachussetts from becoming a precedent setting state for both pandemic tracking and mandatory administration of a flu vaccine. Dwyers group organized to confront State legislators on issues of Constitutionality. They interpret S.2028 to be a mandatory or coercive vaccination law for their state.

We learned earlier, S.2028, potentially would criminalize State citizens for not taking the flu shot with imprisonment and fines of up to $1000 a day. In addition to taking time out to speak to us about the bill and local opposition to the mandates.

Dwyer explained that the State of Massachusetts is distributing 2 types of flu shot: a seasonal flu shot which has been tested extensively and the H1N1 flu shot. The Sanofi-Pasteur Fluzone seasonal Flu shot, expected to be distributed nationally in October, contains the poisonous and damaging natural element, Mercury or mercury derivatives and the H1N1 virus itself. We will be asking the makers of these H1N1 vaccines if they have started adding a nano technology developed by VeriChip to vaccines distributed to hospitals in the United States for intended injection during flu season.

If you have taken this brand of flu vaccine and are suffering from symptoms of Guillain-Barre Syndrome(GBS), which attacks the nervous system and afflicts basic motor functions, please call 1-800-VACCINE. GBS has no known cure, but symptoms can be lessened with treatment.

BTC- Take your grain of salt. Tell any of your healthcare practioner friends who have been told to take the H1N1 vaccine as a condition of their employment to get a lawyer, contact the labor unions and organize a walk out. At least get them to find out what’s in it.
No matter what you believe about H1N1 today; if anyone in a position of authority even hints to the effect that you will be either incarcerated or let go from your job on the conditions of taking a H1N1 vaccine, go get a lawyer. Don’t wait.

Next step in H1N1 scare:
Microchip implants
Company developing under-the-skin devices to detect ‘bio-threats’

A Florida-based company that boasts selling the world’s first and only federally approved radio microchip for implanting in humans is now turning its development branch toward “emergency preparedness,” hoping to produce an implant that can automatically detect in its host’s bloodstream the presence of swine flu or other viruses deemed a “bio-threat.”

VeriChip Corporation currently sells a small, under-the-skin Radio Frequency Identification capsule, or RFID, that patients can opt to have implanted, containing a number computer-linked to their medical records, enabling doctors with a special reader to access the information even if the patient is unconscious or unidentified. The company boasts its microchip, roughly the size of a grain of rice, is the only such implant approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

But VeriChip has also turned its attention to other uses for the technology, including microchips that be used to tag and log human remains after a disaster and implants the company hopes will be able to warn if their host is infected with the H1N1 swine flu virus, the H5N1 bird flu virus or other pandemic agents deemed to be a “bio-threat.”

VeriChip is working with a Minnesota company, Receptors LLC, to develop the virus-detection technology.

“As we continue to build on our partnership with Receptors, which started with the development of a glucose-sensing RFID implantable microchip, we are moving beyond patient identification to sensors that can detect and identify illnesses and viruses such as influenza,” said Scott R. Silverman, chairman of VeriChip, in a statement. “This is an exciting next step for the future of our healthcare division.” :::MORE HERE:::
