“At our local Weston A. Price chapter meeting last week, a woman named Becky came up to reintroduce herself. A while back she told me that the hospital she works for was now making flu shots mandatory, and she didn’t know what to do. She wanted to let me know how that all turned out — you’ll be shocked!
You’ll also be amazed at how well written this letter is and how well thought out her arguments are.
Here’s Becky’s letter to the higher-ups at the hospital:
(Full name withheld), RN
To whom it may concern:
I am writing to formally defend my decision to decline the influenza vaccination. I have made this decision based on strong moral and ethical convictions that are supported by my religious beliefs, medical research and legal precedent.
Medical research indicates that the efficacy of the influenza vaccination is grossly exaggerated (1).
The British Medical Journal has questioned the validity of studies claiming efficacy and stated that “evidence from systemic reviews shows that inactivated vaccines have little or no effect on the effects measured.” (2)
Another journal has proven influenza vaccinations have not changed the amount of doctor visits or hospitalizations in children (3,4,5), and another shows that vaccinations have not impacted the mortality rate of the elderly population. (6,7)
There is also a lack of supporting evidence to show that vaccinating healthcare workers prevents influenza transmission. (8)
I believe that these vaccinations are providing a false sense of security and therefore putting our patients at risk.
An even greater risk exists for those that receive the vaccination. The CDC lists the following as being found in the influenza vaccination: Neomycin, Polymyxin B, formaldehyde or formalin, thimerosal, embryonated chicken eggs, egg albumin, gelatin, Gentamycin, Polyoxyethylene 9-10 Nonyl Phenol (Triton N-101, Octoxynol 9), chick kidney cells and Taurodeoxychoalate. (9)
Many of these are known carcinogens and detergents that have unknown effects on the human body. Chronic over exposure to antibiotics has also proven to be detrimental to overall health. (10)…”
