Nurses are required to wear face masks for refusing the flu vaccine.

Despite a CDC study that found mandatory vaccines for nurses offer no protection for patients, hospitals are pushing hard for forced vaccinations.  Many nurses are choosing to lose their jobs rather than submit to forced mandatory flu vaccinations, and one has even sued the hospital, state, and federal governments for $100,000,000.

Nurses against Mandatory Vaccines (NAMV) was founded and formed by our CEO became alarmed when mandatory vaccination policies were being introduced into workplaces, and there seemed to be no rhyme or reason. First and foremost, NAMV is not anti-vaccine, but pro-choice when it comes to vaccination. We believe that all persons should have the right to choose and refuse medical treatment; that means nurses and healthcare workers alike.

Research and other publicly acquired information now shows why: hospital systems are REQUIRED to have a 90% or higher flu shot reception rate among their staff, or they lose up to 2% of their funding of Medicare/Medicaid (http://www.hhs.gov/ash/initiatives/hai/hcpflu.html). While the government itself does not require mandatory vaccination policies, many if not all, are taking an “all or nothing” stance against their workers. You now face being fired and without a job if you refuse a flu vaccine.

This is a human rights violation, is a violation of the Patient Bill of Rights, and is a huge EEOC violation.

The flu vaccine is not an effective way to eradicate a disease that is only ESTIMATED to cause approximately 30,000 deaths in the US per year. This number is lumped in with pneumonia cases. More people die each year from medical errors, heart disease, diabetes, and sepsis.

NAMV does not support mandatory vaccination policies for healthcare workers of any kind. We are here to stand up and fight back against this policy and procedure, and to fight back against the vaccine companies who clearly lobbied for this law ONLY to pad their own pockets. It has been suggested that the mandatory flu vaccines are for “patient safety.” The truth of the matter is, is that mandatory flu vaccine policies are to provide more funding and money for the vaccine companies who produce these drugs.

NAMV is here to fight and to help others fight against these unfair and unreasonable forced medical procedures.

Nurses are required to wear face masks for refusing the flu vaccine.

In spite of harassments for not compromising, these nurses keep a professional attitude and make the best of difficult circumstances for the sake of the patients.

  3. I just want to say thank you to these brave ladies, and I assume men as well. I agree vaccination should remain a choice, and am grateful that these nurses are willing to risk their jobs over this very important issue. It is my opinion that we should maintain the right to choose which medical interventions we accept for our bodies. Again, thank you!

  4. Particularly the flu vaccine is composed of viruses from the previous year so it doesn’t protect us from the virus this year. Flu virus mutates every year so that’s why people are sick even after taking flu shot. It should be required for people with chronic diseases because their immunity is not so strong. For healthy person in mid age it doesn’t matter. It’s even better if the young person go through disease because they acquire better immunity against flu virus. However, it doesn’t mean when u take a flu shot, you won’t get flu. You still can get it but maybe you will take it better. The best protection is to wash hands between patients which supposed to be done on normal basis. For me the argument to take flu shot to protect patients doesnt have any sense. Im wondering what arguments they use to justify why it’s needed.

    I always look for the nurses in masks! I do not see it as though they are all contagious (as is what most people think), I see them as informed individuals who are willing to put up with a major inconvenience for 4+ months because they stand up for their knowledge. My mother was a Physical Therapy aide for 20 years and never got the flu shot, but had to wear a mask every year. Year after year she would see coworkers get the flu shot, then be sick for weeks on end…but they never had to wear a mask, while my mom NEVER got anything (literally). She has the strongest immune system of anyone I know. Regardless, I think it’s ridiculous to stigmatize those who don’t vaccinate as if they are constantly contagious (or particularly vulnerable), especially when the effectiveness of the flu vaccines seem to be proving less and less effective each year.
    Thank-you all!

  6. Charlie McKeon on

    Influenza is a deadly disease. It kills those who are weak, such as patients in hospitals. The policy is not only reasonable but also life-saving.

    • Charlie,
      You might want to take a few things into account before saying Influenza is “deadly disease,” a term thrown around a lot today. Just because a very small percentage of people, in certain condition, rarely die of disease, does not make it a “killer disease.”

      From the CDC website, here:

      http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease/us_flu-related_deaths.htm

      (all caps are MY emphasis)

      “Seasonal influenza-related deaths are deaths that occur in people for whom seasonal influenza infection was LIKELY A CONTRIBUTOR to the cause of death, but NOT NECESSARILY THE PRIMARY CAUSE OF DEATH.”

      SO, HOW CAN STATISTICS THEY GIVE FOR “SEASONAL-INFLUENZA-RELATED DEATHS,” CARRY ANY WEIGHT AT ALL? “LIKELY” A CONTRIBUTOR?

      and…

      “CDC DOES NOT KNOW EXACTLY HOW MANY PEOPLE DIE FROM SEASONAL FLU EACH YEAR. There are several reasons for this.

      First, states are not required to report individual seasonal flu cases or deaths of people older than 18 years of age to CDC.
      Second, seasonal influenza is infrequently listed on death certificates of people who die from flu-related complications.
      Third, many seasonal flu-related deaths occur one or two weeks after a person’s initial infection, either because the person may develop a secondary bacterial co-infection (such as bacterial pneumonia) or because seasonal influenza can aggravate an existing chronic illness (such as congestive heart failure or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
      ALSO, MOST PEOPLE WHO DIE FROM SEASONAL FLU-RELATED COMPLICATION ARE NOT TESTED FOR FLU, OR THEY SEEK MEDICAL CARE LATER IN THE THEIR ILLNESS WHEN SEASONAL INFLUENZA CAN NO LONGER BE DETECTED FROM RESPIRATORY SAMPLES.”

      and, when asked “Why does CDC estimate deaths associated with seasonal flu?” They say:

      “CDC feels it is important to CONVEY THE FULL BURDEN OF THE SEASONAL FLU TO THE PUBLIC.”
      (I’ll explain why this is important later)

      and, when asked “What categories does CDC use to estimate flu-associated deaths?” They say:

      “CDC USES TWO CATEGORIES OF UNDERLYING CAUSE OF DEATH INFORMATION LISTED ON DEATH CERTIFICATES: PNEUMONIA and INFLUENZA (P & I), and RESPIRATORY and CIRCULATORY (R & C) causes.”

      “CDC USES (R & C) DEATHS (WHICH INCLUDE P & I DEATHS) AS THE PRIMARY OUTCOME IN ITS MORTALITY MODELING BECAUSE R & C DEATHS PROVIDE AN ESTIMATE OF DEATHS THAT INCLUDE SECONDARY RESPIRATORY OR CARDIAC COMPLICATIONS THAT [CAN] FOLLOW INFLUENZA.”

      When asked “DOES CDC THINK THAT INFLUENZA CAUSES MOST “PNEUMONIA AND INFLUENZA” DEATHS?” They say:

      NO, ONLY A SMALL PROPORTION OF DEATHS IN EITHER OF THESE TWO CATEGORIES ARE ESTIMATED TO BE INFLUENZA-RELATED. CDC estimated that ONLY 8.5% OF ALL “PNEUMONIA AND INFLUENZA” DEATHS, and ONLY 2.1% OF ALL RESPIRATORY AND CIRCULATION DEATHS ARE INFLUENZA-RELATED.”

      Look at flu statistics report here:

      gis.cdc.gov/grasp/fluview/fluportaldashboard.html

      Choose the interactive flu report. According to this, here are the confirmed flu cases reported by flu season:
      2000-2001 — 0 (It was also 0 for the 3 prev. years, which is as far as I went. Not sure if they reported it back then)
      2001-2002 — 0
      2002-2003 — 3
      2003-2004 — 25
      2004-2005 — 14
      2005-2006 — 95
      2006-2007 — 80
      2007-2008 — 43
      2008-2009 — 6,933 (mostly from H1N1)
      2009-2010 — 138
      2010-2011 — 77
      2011-2012 — 312
      2012-2013 — 434
      2013-2014 — 502
      2014-2015 — 4,252 (so far)

      It’s interesting to note that the flu shot wasn’t recommended for everyone until 2000

      And, in an article written by Peter Doshi from Harvard, and printed in the British Medical Journal in 2005, called “Are US flu death figures more PR than science?”, he shows how the CDC, and other health agencies are making a concerted effort to push flu, and other, vaccinations by using skewed statistics and catastrophic language. From the article:

      “US data on influenza deaths are a mess. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledges a difference between flu death and flu associated death yet uses the terms interchangeably. Additionally, there are significant statistical incompatibilities between official estimates and national vital statistics data. Compounding these problems is a marketing of fear—a CDC communications strategy in which medical experts “predict dire outcomes” during flu seasons.”

      “[According to CDC statistics], ‘influenza and pneumonia’ took 62,034 lives in 2001—61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu virus positively identified.”

      You see, the CDC had created one category that combined flu and pneumonia deaths. Why did they do this? Because they self-servingly assumed that the pneumonia deaths were complications stemming from the flu.

      This is an absurd assumption. Pneumonia has a number of causes. But even worse, in all the flu deaths, only 18 were traced directly to a flu virus.

      Therefore, the CDC could not say, with assurance, that more than 18 people died of the flu in 2001.”

      “Between 1979 and 2001, [CDC] data show an average of 1348 [flu] deaths per year (range 257 to 3006).”

      In this same article, Doshi talks about a vaccine summit in 2004, co-sponsored by the CDC and AMA, where the Director of Communications of the National Immunization Program, spoke to public health agencies and doctors, using “The Seven-Step Recipe For Creating Interest In and Demand for the Flu (and any other) Vaccine.” In it, he talks about steps that public health officials and doctors should use to make people feel like they are at great risk for a serious outcome, by using dire predictions, etc. I have a copy of this article somewhere, and when I find it, I can post exactly what those steps are. Remember above, when someone asked the CDC on their site why they estimate flu deaths, and they said “CDC feels it is important to CONVEY THE FULL BURDEN OF THE SEASONAL FLU TO THE PUBLIC.” My question is, do they really mean they want to make the flu sound worse than it is to push more vaccines?

      The point is, that one of the CDC’s main goals is to push vaccination, and they, and other health agencies, make a concerted effort to do using misinformation and catastrophic language. It is so shocking that they can report 62,000 deaths from “pneumonia and flu,” followed by the statement that everyone should get their flu shot, when there had only been 18 confirmed deaths from the flu that year, that I think people disregard the information. It’s just too mind-boggling, the level of deceit.

      And, they even recommend the flu shot for pregnant women, even though the vaccine inserts from the flu vaccine, say very clearly that they have never been tested in pregnant women!

    • No, Charlie, influenza is not a deadly disease. It’s not deadly and it’s certainly not a disease. You’ve been watching too much CNN and listening to that criminal organization known as the CDC. If you took the time to actually do a little research before posting such nonsense, you’d also realize that it is the vaccinated that are spreading the flu. So, actually, in a hospital, it’s the vaccines that are putting other patients at risk, not the nurses who are smart enough to not inject poison into their bodies. No, go educate yourself.

    • Charlie,
      Clearly you haven’t done any research or you would know that the influenza vaccine was around 16% effective this 2014-2015 season and less than 9% for people over 60. There have been no studies linking hospital acquired influenza to nurse to patient transmission. Are you willing to give up all of your rights to medical informed consent when it comes to treatment? I think not. NO ONE should be forced to received a medical treatment without informed consent.

  7. I am an LPN. I wore a mask for the first year of the mandatory vaccine campaaign. Now i have a sensitivity to the masks and get a rash on my face if i wear one. Last year I got the vaccination, which apparently was miscalculated for the strain of flu anyways…

    • The army has no choice in say no to vaccines iam a nurse also ive been va inated forso many diseases you would cringed you dont see the miltary itching about a little flu shot I got mine every year no problem yellow fever no problem get over it most hosp has changed n made forced vaccines no more besides theres no guarantee you wont get it anyway. Itakes the sysptoms a little less.

  8. Have to wear mask through the end of April. Aren’t they in violation of our HIPPA rights in doing so?

  9. Instead of focusing so much energy on forcing people to do something they don’t want to do, why not focus more energy on pressuring the vaccine manufacturers to create safe and effective vaccinations?

    Vaccination should ALWAYS be a choice, especially when the manufacturers won’t take responsibility for any adverse side effects or reactions. The problem isn’t the people who choose not to get vaccinated. The problem isn’t vaccination in theory. The problem is ineffective and often dangerous vaccines created by manufacturers that lie and deceive for profits.

  10. 126 years ago Edgar March Crookshank wondered why vaccination had not faded out of memory and history since he exposed Jenner as a fraud. Fraud and murder have no statute of limitations in their system. Although I understand the position of NAMV as an organization as prochoice to protect their government-granted status, the evidence available is that vaccines are biological weapons that have already rewritten 92 percent of our genome. Is it a choice to accept death? Where is the bravery in 22,000 people refusing but only ONE going against a corrupt system of death? Is the nurse naming each and every individual that has perpetrated this crime? If not then the suit will not be taken seriously because although corporations (like the federal government) are considered persons, they are untouchable, but individuals are not. Why isn’t there a class action? Why aren’t there 22,000 individual suits? Why are these workers still in an industry that is proven to be the uniformed service of a military operation? The CDC has a Surgeon General. They are working for the other side when there are plenty of choices to make in homeopathy, massage, naturopathy, or any other alternative to allopathy that kills at least a quarter of a million people a year in North America. Buffer your celebration of this event with the reality of what it really represents: the ineffectual resistance of isolated individuals against a tidal wave of death.

  11. Mary Ethridge on

    I lifted this from a letter an RN wrote to her Board telling them why she would not allow herself to be vaccinated. She kept her job. Reasons Not To Get Flu Vaccine – 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 people 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)

    Some of the potential side effects from the vaccination include anaphylaxis, allergic asthma, redness and discomfort at the injection site, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, vasculitis, body aches, paresthesia, neuopathy, seizure, facial palsy, facial paresis, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, headache, sore throat, muscle aches, cough, chills, fever, encephalitis and meningitis. (11)

    Thimerosal has been shown to potentially increase the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease, brain damage and nervous system injury. (12,13,14) Package inserts also state that the vaccination/mist “has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential or its potential to impair fertility.” This clearly states then that very little is known about the long-term health effects of receiving this vaccination. There is also no guarantee of protection from influenza or potential temporary or permanent injury or even death.

    I believe that vaccination is an invasive medical procedure and based on the above, is an experimental procedure. While I support the desire to maintain safety for everyone, I cannot support the use of mandatory vaccinations to achieve this goal. The mandatory administration of this is in direct violation of the Nuremberg Code which states in article 1 that consent should be voluntary and allow for “free power of choice without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion.” Article 6 states, “the degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.” And article 9, “During the course of the experiment the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end if he has reached the physical or mental state where continuation of the experiment seems to him to be impossible.” (15)

    As a Christian I believe I am to treat my body with respect as it is a gift from God (see 2 Corinthians 7:1 and 1 Corinthians 6:19 and 20). I believe that destroying life and knowingly injecting myself with toxins is a contradiction to my beliefs and unacceptable. Health is of great importance to me and something that I do not take lightly. I choose to maintain my health by following The Weston A. Price Foundation’s recommendations on nutrition. 916)

    I also adhere to regular exercise, proper vitamin D intake (17), adequate rest and stress management, and appropriate preventative health care.

  12. Don’t listen to Charlie or whatever he/she calls themself. He’s part of the disinformation campaign to mislead you and to create doubt. This is how they try to disunify us and pit us against each other by instigating our differences. I love these wonderful women and I give them support. Nurse C, as for you your full of BULLSHIT, why don’t you do some real research into the nature of this program that is government and CDC inniciated. Nice way to type your words so as to psychology manipulate the reader. For the disinformation agents, it’s not that I have any hate for you, it’s just that why would you stoop so low to diswade people for a corrupt system. Disinformation agent or not, you’re still disunifying people. No matter our differences, we are all one human family and we’re tired of a system that doesn’t serve us anymore.

    Namaste
