A nurse seemed to be irked with the majority of the patients being babies, not able to gut out the symptoms.

Sound like widespread PTSD...

Because you didn't get the flu shot, that's why.

Was that a link to big pharma or the CDC, or is it the same thing? I wouldn't put that crap in my body!

I got my shot. We called the Keene emergency room to get some advice when you should bring in an elderly person. She's got the sniffles, our son is getting over the flu, it was pretty intense. He had a prolonged fever of 103.5.

Mike, call her primary care physician and immediately or take her to the walk in clinic in Bellows Falls Vermont (old hospital building)! Get the medicine & do not allow her to get dehydrated!

You don't have to have severe symptoms to get prescription medication. Anyone who is diagnosed with the flu can get a prescription for antiviral drugs, which makes it difficult for the virus to reproduce. Timing is crucial: The medicines must be started within two days after you become sick. They can make your symptoms less severe and might shorten your illness by one to two days.

That's what Brattleboro Hospital really needs, a designated walk-in-clinic. That way our emergency room could be just that, a place for emergencies!

They figured out decades ago how to cull the herd easily, just lace the vaccines with cancer viruses and toxins like mercury and squaline etc.

mikey some of ewe pay the ultimate price for them\/\/\/

Jonas Salk, inventor of the IPV, testified before a Senate subcommittee that nearly all polio outbreaks since 1961 were caused by the oral polio vaccine.

"I once believed in Jenner; I once believed in Pasteur. I believed in vaccination. I believed in vivisection. But I changed my views as the result of hard thinking."--Dr. Hadwen

"There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway."
and...
"There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunisation of children does more harm than good." - both from Dr. J. Anthony Morris (formerly Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the US Federal Drug Admin.)

"There is insufficient evidence to support routine vaccination of healthy persons of any age." - Paul Frame, M.D., Journal of Family Practice

"Many here voice a silent view that the Salk and Sabin Polio Vaccines, being made from monkey kidney tissue, has been directly responsible for the major increase in leukaemia in this country." - Dr F. Klenner, M.D.

"Even to this day, the government, the FDA is refusing to use the sophisticated biotechnology to evaluate the contaminants in the vaccines such as the polio vaccines that they are administering. I think (people) would be appalled that some of the vaccines that are currently being used are still laced with viruses." -Leonard Horowitz., D.M.D., M.A., M.P.H.

"The only safe vaccine is a vaccine that is never used" -- Dr. James A. Shannon, National Institutes of Health

A report on 479 whooping cough patients in the US states that 60 percent of patients had received less than 3 doses of DPT vaccine, while the other 40 percent of victims had been fully vaccinated (three doses or more).(Weekly Report, Centers for Disease Control, July 2, 1982.)

This is what the I hate the government granolas Vermonters' buys you:

Vt. battles whooping cough outbreak

"For the very youngest, it can be a fatal disease, Chen said.

The Vt. Health Dept. said through mid-December, the state had 568 confirmed cases of whooping cough. The actual number is likely significantly higher than that, the department said, because many cases can go unreported to doctor's offices. That number represents a jump of eight times the number of cases last year, and more than 31 times the number of cases in 2010. Other states have seen increases in pertussis cases, too, Dr. Chen noted.

"Vermont is, per population, probably close to being worse off than some other states, because we're so small," he explained.

The worst-stricken group in the Vermont epidemic is kids age 10 to 14, even though state numbers show approximately 90 percent of children here get the vaccine. The Health Dept. said that is not shocking, admitting that the pertussis shot is not as effective as protections against some other ailments are.

Brattleboro Hospital needs to learn how to treat people with dignity and respect. I have been to other emergency rooms that were overworked, with stressed out nurses running from patient to patient, yet they always treated me very decently. I recently went to Brattleboro Hospital's emergency room when they weren't as busy and they treated me like a piece of garbage. I was very sick and in terrible pain and they not only insulted me and got nasty and abusive, but they booted me out without the tests I needed to find out what was wrong. So many horror stories abound that I don't see a walk-in clinic as helping in the case of YOUR hospital.

Is your son and his high school class big fans of Kim Kardashian?
