It seems the height of selfishness to sue for the right to endanger the health of their patients by exposing them to risk of infection. I suppose next a surgeon will sue for the right to not scrub up before an operation. Why are such people in health care anyway?

I am a nursing student and I too am being mandated to have these vaccines. I am not prepared to have H1N1 yet as it isnt well studied yet..and I don't feel safe with it yet. If I am sick, I will stay home.

Chuck, I would love to know what you do for a living. What if you were mandated to do something on the job that was not proven safe. Perhaps they want to use you as a guniea pig? What would you say then? Health care workers are more at risk from "catching" something from their patients, rather than the other way around.

Good for her . Who is the Government or anybody else to tell you what shots you have to take. Especially since there has been no long studies on this shot. I understand that there is three live virus in that shot. Remember one thing, Blind faith in our leaders or in anything else can get you kill. Ask our Government offical if they plan to get this shot I would love to know their answers on it.

Obviously Chuck is out to lunch as far as who's being selfish and who isn't.
Also obviously he hasn't been open to hearing what qualified health professionals have had to say about the contents of said vaccine.
And...obviously he doesn't know that the very people who are producing the vaccine ( Baxter Pharmaceutical) have done things like putting live avian flu in previous vaccines designated for wide distribution. That happened in the Czech Republic. It was caught and the vaccine outlawed.
And also obviously he doesn't know that the pharmaceutical companies are now free of liability for illness or death from their vaccines.
In short, Chuck doesn't know what he's talking about and makes his decisions, shall we say, in an uninformed way.
I say that if he so badly wants to take a chance with those whose main objective is boosting their profit margin through pandemic futures stocks, then go right ahead. Whatever happens, he's on his own.
But he has no right to demand such carelessness from those who put their lives on the line in service to the likes of him every day.
Ignorance has no bounds.

Pull up your sleeve, Chuck and you can have my vaccinations! I have been a Nurse for 30 years, and never took care of anyone who had the flu, and the one time I did get a flushot in the 90's I ended up sick that night and within the week I had pneumonia. Of course they say it wasn't the vaccination! But maybe it was! I don't want to take a chance, especially with 2 mandated shots. Why the push to make NY State health workers and no other state. If it was a Federal mandate, then all health care workers in the US would have to get them. Why is NY singled out???? I'm not paranoid but it seems fishy to me!!!

Just hope the DA gets involved and arrests these malcontent troublemakers. Dusturbing the peace, and theft of services (nurses! no less) among malfeasance. Shameful lazy nurses.

Well Winterwind...it looks to me like what they're hoping for with such a move is that introducing this into the systems those who handle people with compromised immune systems might just be a way to have the illness spread justifying the mandatory use of the vaccine.
That's not gonna' work anyway.
I was in the Saratoga Cardiac Wing several times this year and I never saw people who washed their hands more.( Great gang of nurses!)
The powers that would like to be are looking for every angle and with all of this resistance they're pretty damned desperate.
There are billions invested in this and besides the substantial losses, certain other nefarious plans will go down the toilet.
Me?...I say FLUSH!!! And make sure it all goes down!

Why bother? Got the flu vaccine last year still ended up with the flu, confirmed with swab! We should not have to be mandated to do anything! Also, as an aside if we have a needle stick, patients do not have to consent to HIV, or hepatitis testing. Who the hell is protecting us? Why the hell do we have to protect the patients?

I guess I am in the minority. I don't mind getting the H1N1 vax, but the hospital I work for doesn't have any, and has no idea when they will.

I think supply will be a huge problem.

H1N1-H5N1 Flu Outbreak Implicates Anglo-American
“Vaccine Pipeline” Says Expert Dr. Leonard Horowitz
Los Angeles, CA— Skyrocketing stock values of Novavax, Inc.,1 precipitated by dozens of flu deaths in Mexico, implicates a leading Anglo-American network of genetic engineers in a conspiracy to commit genocide, according to a Harvard trained expert in emerging diseases, Dr. Leonard Horowitz.
Dr. James S. Robertson, England’s leading bioengineer of flu viruses for the vaccine industry, and avid promoter of U.S. Government funding for lucrative “biodefense” contracts, along with collaborators at the US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), helped Novavax, Inc., in Bethesda, Maryland, produce genetically-modified recombinants of the avian, swine, and Spanish flu viruses, H5N1 and H1N1, nearly identical to the unprecedented Mexican virus that has now spread to the United States. The outbreak was precisely timed to promote the company’s new research and huge vaccine stockpiling contracts, according to Dr. Horowitz.2
Scientists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are implicated through collaborations and publications involving private contracts with Novavax, a company that obtains its “biosimulars” through CDC Influenza Branch director, Ruben O. Donis, and Dr. Rick Bright, previously working with Donis at the CDC, now Novavax’s Vice President of Global Influenza Programs.
Evidence for the conspiracy to commit deadly duplicity in the vaccine industry includes the genetic markers on the novel flu virus now spreading from Mexico to America. The virus is “genetically different from the fully human H1N1 seasonal influenza virus that has been circulating globally for the past few years,” according to Reuters and government officials.“The new flu virus contains DNA typical to avian, swine and human viruses, including elements from European and Asian swine viruses.

“That is a description that is pathognomonic, or diagnostic, of a virus that came from Robertson’s circle of friends,” Dr. Horowitz claims.“No other group in the world takes H5N1 Asian flu infected chickens, brings them to Europe, extracts their DNA, combines their proteins with H1N1 viruses from the 1918 Spanish flu isolate, additionally mixes in swine flu genes from pigs, then ‘reverse engineers’ them to infect humans. The end product that Reuter’s describes could only end up in Mexico via the United States from Britain in care of the CDC. Ruben Donis at the CDC had to have sent them to Novavax, where Rick Bright’s team is now implicated in a conspiracy to commit genocide—the mass killing of people for profit.”

Novavax’s preliminary report in the Journal of Virology, with co-authors from the CDC in Atlanta, was posted online at the precise time Mexican officials began reporting deaths from this new strain of flu that is clearly an unprecedented recombinant of at least three H5N1 and H1N1 strains. Novavax’s Johnny-on-the-spot vaccine was prepared under the CDC’s “fast track” approval process speciously using these three strains never known to infect any human in Mexico.
Therefore, the statistical probability this virus came from this company of “experts” is extremely high. Alternatively, anticipated arguments the virus arrived in Mexico by serendipity, at this precise time in Novavax’s history, is ridiculously remote.
“These doctor’s conflicting corporate, scientific, and financial interests evidence criminal malfeasance,” said Dr. Leonard Horowitz, an internationally known humanitarian, award winning consumer health activist, and author of sixteen books including, Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola—Nature, Accident or Intentional?(1998, Tetrahedron.org; 1-888-508-4787), His book, and associated scientific publications, have been cited by numerous authorities as providing compelling evidence

the AIDS virus came from a lab.

PAGE 3
“The most chilling evidence against the Robertson-Novavax (RN) vaccine pipeline, besides Robertson being the “gatekeeper” for multi-billion dollar vaccine stockpiling deals, is Robertson’s influence over the European Medicines Agency (EMEA)—a quasi-corporate quasi-scientific think tank serving the European [Economic] Union and drug industry’s special interests,” Dr. Horowitz said.
Dr. Robertson is the Principal Scientist in the Division of Virology at the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC), akin to the USFDA in the UK. During a meeting in April, 2006, discussing the standardization of influenza vaccines on behalf of the World Health Organization (WHO), it was disclosed,“the NIBSC is involved in the serological testing of vaccine trials; the preparation and distribution of influenza viruses to vaccine manufacturers; and the coordination of EU strain selection[s].” Participants disclosed the EMEA persuades vaccine makers to bank on pandemics, and “invest in pandemic vaccines with the introduction of mock up files,” which is their unassuming way of describing new laboratory engineered influenza viruses also referred to as “biosimilars.” 4
The EMEA waves regulatory fees as an additional incentive to attract more business for allegedly “biodefense.”4
Dr. Robertson, the holder of intellectual property (IP) rights to the genetic technology used to produce the H5N1 and H1N1 “mock up files” used to develop Novavax’s vaccine, waived his ownership of the technology during the company’s research phase with a guaranteed payoff “when the vaccine is commercialized.” Robertson’s “Material Trade Agreement”(MTA), covering the transfer of these “biosimilars” to Novavax, is expected to return millions of dollars when the vaccine is sold to governments worldwide.

Novavax’s commercialization and promotions of their vaccine is largely based on media hype fanning fears and markets for their avian flu, Spanish flu, and swine flu concoctions. Never before this outbreak has such a virus, combining the three most feared flu strains, been identified.
Mexico’s killer, therefore, evidences a laboratory creation sourcing from either Novavax’s lab directly, or their partners at the CDC and NIBSC who maintain multi-million-dollar incentives. The company’s synchronously timed professional publications, mass media releases, product representations and commercialization, evidence financial motives to commit duplicity and mass murder.
Days ago, officials at the CDC expressed serious concerns about this novel flu strain causing a deadly pandemic, not disclosing their obvious knowledge that the outbreak must have sourced from the materials used in their cooperative studies with Novavax.5
These doctor’s conflicting corporate, scientific, and financial interests evidence criminal malfeasance. Killing dozens of people for publicity and duplicity in public health; to increase marketability of their new vaccine, is best described as serial homicide to advance genocide—the mass killing of people for profit,” Dr. Leonard Horowitz explained.
The most chilling evidence against Dr. Robertson’s EU research team, besides him being the gatekeeper and chief promoter for multi-billion dollar flu vaccine stockpiling deals, and besides his collaborators being caught red handed here by hard science and common sense, is his stated position that he believes it is wise to “prime” populations worldwide by releasing viruses he and his colleagues are creating. This warning comes from a April 27, 2006, scientific discourse in which Dr. Robertson, and members of his WHO working group, recommended his “biosimilars” be “used to prime the population in advance of the pandemic reaching the UK.”

In other words, the doctors that hold infectious disease responsibility for the world have already decided to loose their viruses on unwitting populations in advance of threatened outbreaks. The powers to be are performing eugenic depopulation, because we are having thousands of babies each day. So all of the slime on TV has over come our children’s morals off the charts. Trying their best to split up the tradition of the family unit. Meaning no father is needed in the family structure. The state will be the father land

Seems to me Ms. Shameful you just have a grudge against nurses and you come in under a wide variety of names. Your limited verbiage says it all.
Same content and context all of the time.
Looks like you have nothing of value to say except to attack people of the nursing profession.
You want the DA to get involved? How unAmerican! Nurses have the right to stand up for the protection of their persons in the face of something as risky as this vaccine.
Where will you be in an emergency if these nurses opt to walk away from their jobs rather than risk death or illness from this vaccine?
I'm no nurse, but, supporting them is supporting all the rest of us.
If you weren't quite so ignorant, you'd see that.
