Swine Flu Vaccine Mandate for NY Health Care Workers Halted by Judge's Restraining Order
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
(NaturalNews) Amid growing discontent among New York health care workers who are being forced to receive swine flu vaccine injections, the Public Employees Federation sued in state court to halt the mandate. Friday, a state Supreme Court judge issued a restraining order granting a temporary halt to the mandate until a subsequent hearing can be completed.
The lawsuit was brought by the Public Employees Federation, New York State United Teachers and four Albany nurses. Until today, these workers were required to be vaccinated by November 30th or many were told they would be fired from their jobs. Others were told pay increases would be suspended. Across the board, there was a campaign of intimidation against NY health care workers to force them into receiving the swine flu vaccine injections.
With this court order, mandatory vaccines are temporarily suspended pending a follow-up court hearing on October 30.
New York sets the tone for the H1N1 vaccine debate nationwideNew York has been an epicenter of health choice protests and demonstrations by concerned health care workers. Over 500,000 workers are affected by the H1N1 vaccine mandate, and a majority of those workers simply don't wish to be vaccinated against their will -- or, perhaps, vaccinated at all.
If New York health authorities thought they could just bully half a million health care workers into being injected with a virtually untested, unproven vaccine, they were gravely mistaken. Resistance to the vaccine mandate continues to build as more and more people realize the vaccine may be far more dangerous than the flu it claims to prevent.
In fact, attempts at forcing the swine flu vaccine onto health care workers appear to have backfired for the vaccine industry, causing many people to question the evidence behind all seasonal flu vaccines. As published here on NaturalNews, this increased scrutiny on flu vaccines is resulting in the emergence of some rather revealing information that seems to indicate seasonal flu vaccines have zero efficacy (i.e. they just don't work). See details here: http://www.naturalnews.com/027239_v...
What began as the vaccine industry's attempt to force its medicines on virtually everyone has caused intelligent people across the country and around the world to start asking some tough questions about vaccines. Today, NaturalNews posted ten questions about vaccines that the vaccine industry (and the health authorities pushing vaccines) so far refuse to answer: http://www.naturalnews.com/027258_v...
A recent poll conducted by Harvard University indicates that only 40 percent of adults plan to take the swine flu vaccine. Public support for the vaccine is rapidly evaporating as the real motivations behind the vaccine agenda become increasingly apparent (http://www.naturalnews.com/027222_s...). More and more people are concluding there's really no good reason to take the vaccine given the extremely low fatality rates of the pandemic. At the same time, more people are learning the truth about vitamin D and realizing that vitamin D is better than the vaccine at halting influenza. (http://www.naturalnews.com/027231_V...)
Meanwhile, a lawsuit filed in Washington D.C. by health freedom attorney Jim Turner accuses the FDA of violating federal law in approving the swine flu vaccines without conducting proper testing for either safety or efficacy (http://www.naturalnews.com/027205_v...).
Public support is clearly mounting against not just the swine flu vaccine (and the pandemic "fear factor" marketing push behind it), but seasonal flu vaccines as well.
None of this, of course, means the vaccine mandate in New York won't be reinstated on October 30th. The NY State Department of Health has predictably vowed to fight the decision and reinstate the mandate. But between now and then, it seems quite likely that we'll see a surge in public protests and perhaps even more legal actions filed by NY health care workers to stop what they see as a Big Brother chemical intervention into their own personal health.
