Surely you realize that no one is forced to take flu shots. Those who took the shots did so willingly; the issue here is that the shots weren't flu shots at all, but insulin.

Our school got methadone. Attendance is now up to 99.7 and truancy was eliminated. Unfortunately, the kids are lining up at the door at 3am.

Not everyone is taking these shots willingly, some places are insisting nurses, doctors, and other health care workers receive them, as are some schools insisting teachers and other school workers get them. Either way I agree, it really has nothing to do with the media, or Obama, or nationalized health care. It all boils down to one stupid school nurse. Though I wonder if the student suffered any because their insulin was used and if the school replaced it.

thats not the point. We all know these were insulin by accident. The point she was making is that they were unnecessary in nature in the first place. Then, one mishap after another, incidents like these happen. It's the snowball effect. Sure, no one had to get them but a lot were scared into getting them. At that point, those that got them were at the mercy of higher beings not necessarily with the masses interest in their behalf.

Anyone in the health care business is supposed to do whatever it takes to help keep a potential epidemic from spreading. That would include getting a flu shot, which is just common sense.

I would be very surprised to hear of a single school that "insisted" its staff take the flu shot.

You're insane. You've never heard of deals between politicians and drug pharmaceutical companies?? LMAO what a retard. This mandate of innoculation all came about en masse because some politician and some drug company saw a window of opportunity where it could make millions. Not every thinks they have to get a flu shot, not the smart ones.

The more the better. The medical industry wants sick people. High occupancy at hispitals is a good thing, not bad. wake up.

Another mainstream media induced cranial-rectal inversion, more like it. It is not a conspiracy theory when there is evidence of the facts, as there are in this case. When the evidence is there, it's just a conspiracy, plain and simple.
