APIC's announcement further states: "All healthcare workers, including those who are pregnant, need to be immunized against seasonal influenza and 2009 H1N1 virus when vaccines become available... Current rates of healthcare worker immunizations are appallingly low and must not be tolerated. It's time for hospitals to require flu shots--and hold employees accountable for declining the vaccine."Why is it so important to be immunized this year?
"Immunization will be especially critical for healthcare personnel during the 2009-2010 flu season because we will have more than one virus circulating,” said APIC 2009 President Christine J. Nutty, RN, MSN, CIC.Pardon me, Ms. Nutty. Do you understand the facts upon which your assertions are based? There are multiple influenza viruses circulating every flu season, and sometimes outside the season. That is why seasonal flu shots contain antigens from 3 different strains. Frequently the circulating strains change mid-season. Therefore, having more than one virus circulating is not and has never been unique or critical. Here is the composition of this year's vaccine.
According to CDC's Anne Schuchat, 2% of currently circulating influenza virus is of the seasonal type, and 98% is swine flu. This suggests the population should be eligible to receive swine flu vaccines, but if seasonal flu remains at 2% it would hardly be necessary to vaccinate for it.
However, the swine flu vaccines have not completed safety testing. Nor do we know how effective they really are: the only data available currently concern antibody levels generated, not cases of flu prevented, and even these data are not available for children and pregnant women.
Why do you want to mandate vaccines whose safety and effectiveness are not yet known? Did one of your strategic partners, a partner in prevention or other corporate relationships suggest it? APIC should be held accountable for providing information on where this idea for mandating vaccinations really originated, and whether, how much and by whom APIC was paid to produce and disseminate it.

Public-health officials are breathing a small sigh of relief that the H1N1 swine flu virus hasn’t mutated to become more deadly since emerging last spring. But what are the chances it will?
To find out, scientists at the CDC recently launched experiments in the agency’s labs in which they infected ferrets with both the new H1N1 virus and the highly lethal H5N1 avian flu virus to see if they might “reassort” to create a new hybrid.
The scientists want to know whether a combination of the H1N1 virus -– highly transmissible, but not terribly deadly -– and the H5N1 flu virus could create an easily transmissible, deadly scourge. The H5N1 virus has only sickened 440 people world-wide since 2003 and generally isn’t transmitted from one person to another. But it has killed 262, or about 60%, of those people, according to the World Health Organization.

Excerpt from “PLAINTIFF’S [C. Reynolds'] OBJECTION TO DEFENDANT’S [Florida's] MOTION TO DISMISS”:
Plaintiff Reynold’s objects to the Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss as follows:
1. The Plaintiff is not a licensed attorney nor a person representing an artificial entity. The Plaintiff, a free Floridian, is entitled to redress to the government and access to the courts as a matter of right. The change of venue to Leon County would be a denial of access to the courts. It would be a deliberate and oppressive burden upon the Plaintiff, who would be forced to travel and to pay additional expenses to pursue a basic right.
“All political power is inherent in the people. The enunciation herein of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or impair others retained by the people.”
Constitution, Article 1, Section 1.
“The people shall have the right peaceably to assemble, to instruct their representatives, and to petition for redress of grievances.”
Florida Constitution, Article 1, Section 5.
2. Plaintiff Reynolds objects to the assertion that she has no standing to challenge a law which allows the state to disregard her basic rights as a sovereign Floridian. A reading of the statute clearly assumes that the state may seize, incarcerate and forcibly medicate anyone it wishes. There is no due process before the denial of inalienable rights. Clearly, such actions could be taken by the state against anyone within Florida. Either the people of Florida are sovereign over their own bodies or not. If they are not sovereign over their own bodies, by what authority does the state claim ownership? By what authority does the state have the right to injure and possibly kill by forced medication and physically force a sovereign Floridian?

NAVARRE — A woman wants to take Gov. Charlie Crist to court.
Retired Air Force Lt. Col. Carmen Reynolds has named Crist, Attorney General Bill McCollum and Florida Surgeon General Ana Viamonte Ros in a lawsuit in Santa Rosa County Circuit Court that challenges a state statute governing public health.
“I am retired military, so I understand about following orders and towing the line and falling in,” she said. “But, this is very troubling.”
Reynolds, who is serving as her own attorney, is opposed to a section of the statute that allows law enforcement to use any means necessary to vaccinate a resident in case if an emergency.
Chapter 381.00315(1)(b)4 says a person can be forced to be tested, vaccinated, treated, examined or quarantined for communicable diseases that have significant morbidity or mortality and present a severe danger to the public.
“I’m not against all vaccines, but I’m against any provision in any state statute that says we must forego all of our rights and, at the arbitrary whim of either our state government or our federal government, be subject to any and all force necessary to subject us to a vaccine. We’re talking physical force,” Reynolds said.

Florida Citizen Files Suit Against Mandatory Vaccines:
(Navarre) A retired Air Force lieutenant colonel has filed a lawsuit requesting a Temporary Injunction from mandatory vaccines in the state of Florida, declaring the use of any means necessary to subject citizens to mandatory vaccines is unconstitutional, according to the Florida Constitution. Named in the lawsuit are Gov. Crist, Attorney General McCollum and State Surgeon General Ana Viamonte Ros.
Carmen Reynolds states in her lawsuit that FL Statute Section 381.00315 (1) (b) 4 declares that if the individual cannot be quarantined, the State Health Officer may use any means necessary to vaccinate or treat the individual. The order is immediately enforceable by a law enforcement officer.
"Either the people of Florida are sovereign over their own bodies or not," Reynolds said. "If we are not sovereign over our own bodies, by what authority does the state claim ownership? By what authority does the state have the right to injure and possibly kill by forced medication and physically force a sovereign Floridian," she continued.
A hearing has been set for Oct. 1 at 3:45 p.m. in First Judicial Circuit Courtroom Room 110, Milton, with Judge Swanson.

In 1976, the mandatory Swine Flu vaccine gave almost 500 people Guillain-barre syndrome and killed 25. Thousands of others suffered from side effects, and the program was discontinued.
Almost 32 young women have died from the Gardasil vaccine used to treat cervical cancer and there have been more than 32,000 adverse incidents. Judicial Watch is currently investigating this phenomenon. Originally, Merck moved to make this vaccine mandatory for young women, ages 9-14. Recently, one of its own researchers (Dr. Harper) has come out to state it is only effective for five years, which makes greatly reduces its long-term preventive effects.
The polio vaccine contained a cancer-producing monkey virus – as the vaccine was grown on the kidneys of monkeys.
It was identified because it was producing unusual cancers in young children, yet it continued to remain in the vaccine for 40 years! Again, this was to preserve profits.
This fact contributed to the exorbitant cancer rates seen in the American population over the last decades.
This information has been kept from the American public but is the reason our cancer rates have grown so rapidly.
There is MUCH more info like: profits, nano-chips, cancer-causing agents in previous vaccines, Gardasil, Baxter, whistleblowers, no testing, quality control, toxic additives/adjuvants, side effects, immune system impact, etc. that could be discussed.
It is because of examples such as these and below that I do NOT want to be subjected to a Mandatory Vaccine.
Serious reasons to skip the H1N1 vaccine, Part II
This summer, Americans across the country lined up in droves to become the first human guinea pigs to receive the H1N1 flu vaccine. I don't believe for a second that the vaccine will effectively protect you or anyone else against H1N1. On the contrary, I'm more concerned about how much harm the vaccine may cause when millions more men, women, and children get it this fall.
As you'll remember from last week's Guide to Good Health, the last time the government hastily pushed through an untested vaccine, disaster ensued. Five hundred people came down with a paralyzing condition called Guillain-Barre Syndrome and 25 people died.
Government officials swear a repeat of 1976 will not happen. But they also admit they don't really know for sure.
In fact, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, “No clinical trial in the world is going to be large enough to be able to detect an event that occurs one in every 100,000 people. The only way to pick that up is after the fact, when a lot of people get vaccinated and good surveillance picks it up."
In other words, we won't know if the stuff is really bad until we give it to a million people.
Well, thanks Dr. Fauci. Good to know you've thought this one through a month before injecting millions of toddlers, pregnant women, and immuno-compromised adults.
Plus, there's something else that's got me worried...
I'll make no bones about it: the 2009 swine vaccine is bad news, especially if it contains an ingredient called an adjuvant. An adjuvant is added to a vaccine to make it stretch. It basically supercharges the vaccine to create a stronger immunological response. So instead of each person getting one full dose of the H1N1 virus, each person might only get ? of a dose along with an adjuvant supercharger.
This is the government's secret ace in the hole. If Uncle Sam thinks he's running low on the vaccine, he can just add an adjuvant and make the supplies stretch much further.
But an adjuvant can cause your immune system to go haywire. Case in point: the anthrax vaccine given to Gulf War soldiers. An adjuvant called squalene was added to that vaccine to make it stretch further. But many blame squalene for causing the so-called Gulf War Syndrome (GWS).
Now, don't get me wrong. Squalene isn't always toxic. In fact, it's a natural substance found in most plants and animals. Your body uses it to help synthesize cholesterol as well as vitamin D. You'll also find squalene in personal care products as well as nutritional supplements. In those instances, squalene is not a health hazard. However, when commercial squalene is injected into the bloodstream (as with a vaccine), it appears to disrupt the body's immune system. The body identifies it as a threat and creates antibodies to attack it.
In fact, when scientists from Tulane University tested blood samples from vets suffering from GWS, they found that 100 percent of them contained abnormal antibodies to squalene. This backs up the theory held by many in the medical community that squalene triggered GWS in these vets.
Now, here's the thing...symptoms of the Gulf War Syndrome were subtle to start: headaches, fatigue, and generalized aches and pains. And they didn't show up immediately. It took a while for the men and women to start feeling bad. (Side note: this is what worries me about the H1N1 vaccine as well. Reactions to medicines or vaccines can take years to appear, making it difficult to connect the dots. But we've only been working with the H1N1 vaccine for mere months, not years. How do we know how the H1N1 vaccine will act in the body years from now?)
As a result, it took a while for military docs to figure out that GWS was linked to a bad reaction to the anthrax vaccine. Instead, everyone in the government initially got away with labeling the vets' immunological problems as post-traumatic stress.
So what's Gulf War Syndrome got to do with the H1N1 vaccine? Well, squalene is exactly the same adjuvant at least two drug companies have been playing around with adding to the H1N1 vaccine. In fact, they've already been paid millions of dollars by Uncle Sam to develop stores of the vaccine containing the adjuvant.
Keeping their options open
The Department of Health and Human Services is holding its cards close regarding the use of adjuvants in the H1N1 vaccine. Officials won't say for certain whether or not they plan on using them. But I can tell you one thing, they're keeping their options open.
Here's how I know...
On June 15th, Department of Health and Human Services chief Kathleen Sibelius basically issued a carte blanche to Big Pharma when it comes to the H1N1 vaccine. She's invoked the PREP Act of 2006 (Public Readiness and Emergency Readiness Act). This law gives the five drug manufactures complete immunity against lawsuits for their vaccines, even if the vaccine contains an adjuvant.
According to the HHC website, immunity has been granted to the manufacturers “in all stages of 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccine development, testing, manufacture, distribution, prescribing, administration, and use.”
In other words, no matter how bad things get, even if the vaccine contains a known hazardous ingredient, the drugmakers can't get in trouble!
Money, money, money
All along, I've suspected this whole swine flu pandemic isn't about saving lives. To date, the swine flu has been linked to a little over 500 deaths in this country. Heck, the regular seasonal flu is six times more deadly than H1N1.
So what's all the fuss about? Money, of course!
The five drug companies handed H1N1 vaccine contracts are set to make a boatload off their largely untested products. In fact, the Department of Health and Human Services has already spent $2 billion dollars to purchase 195 million doses of the vaccine and adjuvant.
In addition Congress passed and President Obama recently signed a supplemental appropriation bill for $7.5 billion to cover the additional costs of preparing for H1N1. That figure doesn't even include the money spent on clinical trials or marketing of the vaccine.
All told, we could spend up to $10 billion dollars on a vaccine for something that may cause fewer deaths this year than accidental falls at home.
Protecting yourself sensibly this fall
Here's the bottom line about the H1N1 vaccine: You don't need it.
Instead, be smart. Wash your hands. Get lots of rest. Eat healthy. And take 2000 to 4000 IUs of vitamin D-3 during the winter months. That's the best way to fight off any virus, even the absurdly over-hyped money-sucking H1N1 virus!
Until next time,
Allan Spreen, M.D.
