Healthcare workers in New York may be required to get immunized for seasonal and H1N1 influenza in the next few months.
The NY State Hospital Review and Planning Council (SHRPC) has approved an emergency regulation requiring influenza vaccinations for healthcare personnel, reports the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS).
We are pleased she has given us permission to reprint it here: Lie # 1 “Thimerosal, 49.55% mercury by weight, is safe when used as a preservative in vaccines and other drugs.” : The Eli Lilly Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for Thimerosal acknowledges that exposure to Thimerosal in utero and in children can cause “mild to severe mental retardation and mild to severe gross motor impairment.” The Sigma Aldrich MSDS lists abortion and fetal death as possible outcomes of in utero exposure.
Sykes from the United Methodist Women wrote a compelling blog post about the “Ten Lies Commonly Told about Mercury in Vaccines” for those who aren’t sure of the facts.
A vaccine is assessed by its efficacy; the extent to which it reduces risk of disease under controlled conditions, and its effectiveness, the observed reduction in risk after the vaccine is put into use.
However, studies on the effectiveness of flu vaccines in the real world are difficult; vaccines may be imperfectly matched, virus prevalence varies widely between years, and influenza is often confused with other influenza-like illnesses.
By 2003, the vaccine manufacturers had begun to react to the 1999 call by lowering the mercury content in many of the Thimerosal-preserved early childhood vaccines.
However, in April of 2002, the CDC began recommending that pregnant women and very young children get annual Thimerosal-preserved flu shots.
The emergency regulation would become effective when filed with the NY Department of State and would apply to “all personnel working in hospitals, diagnostic and treatment centers, certified home health agencies, long-term home health care programs, acquired immune deficiency syndrome home care programs, licensed home care service agencies, and hospices,” reports HANYS.
Regulations applying to nursing home personnel would require action by the state legislature.
It should not be given to those with severe allergies to eggs or to previous versions of the vaccine.
