(NaturalNews) Memorial Hermann (MH), a major hospital system in Houston, Tex., that employs 20,000 workers at 11 area hospitals, is currently pushing a campaign that aims to vaccinate 100 percent of its workers with the flu shot by Nov. 18. And one of the ways this medical group is not-so-subtly attempting to force full compliance is by threatening those who have not gotten their shots with having to wear face masks at work throughout the entire flu season.

NaturalNews was able to locate a Flu Update email that MH sent to all of its employees notifying them that 14,000 employees, or 72 percent, have already gotten their flu shots as part of the hospital system's "new flu prevention policy." But with only a few days left in the campaign and roughly 5,000 employees still not vaccinated, the group is apparently hoping that the threat of having to wear a face mask will convince the rest to surrender.

"[W]ith only four days remaining in the campaign, approximately 5,000 employees still must either get the flu vaccination or complete a declination form, requiring that they wear a mask during the during (sic) flu season," says the email alert.

MH declination form forces those who do not want the flu shot to lie

But the MH Declination of Mandatory Influenza Vaccination itself is illegitimate, as it forces employees to agree with a number of lies about the flu. The form states, for instance, that influenza kills an average of 36,000 people and injures more than 200,000 others every year in the US. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), however, admitted just last year that these common statistics are flawed and untrue (http://www.naturalnews.com/030170_seasonal_f...).

The form also forces those who do not want the flu shot, to admit to the false statement that the "consequences of my refusing to be vaccinated could have life-threatening consequences to my health and the health of those with whom I have contact." Flu vaccines have never been conclusively proven to be safe or effective, and a recent study shows that only 1.5 out of every 100 people who get a flu shot derive any perceived benefit (http://www.naturalnews.com/033998_influenza_...).

Nowhere on the form is there any admission about the potentially deadly side effects that accompany the flu shot, or any admission that many people who get the flu shot still get the flu. But the form does warn that if employees fail to wear their masks as instructed, they could be fired from their jobs.

This flu hysteria stunt being promoted by MH is really nothing more than medical mafia coercion predicated on lies and pseudoscience. And the nonsensical punishment for those who refuse to comply with such nonsense is even more egregious, as it basically "brands" non-compliers as villains. Face masks, after all, do not necessarily prevent the transmission of flu -- but they sure do embarrass and ostracize those who decide to embrace health freedom of choice and think for themselves by refusing the flu shot!
