Why does anyone need to keep track of who gets vaccines? We are so used to the idea of officials needing know everything about everything with statistics on everything, that we don’t realize that this is so unnecessary. Why would you want to track these people? A person that is vaccinated should be safe from the flu. No need to come rescue them. No need to track. Unless you believe it may harm them and they would need treatment or medical monitoring. Maybe? We have already seen all the nasty things that are going into this swine flu vaccine.
Now there is another group of people that you might want to single out by doing this; the un-vaccinated. Why would you want to do that? One thought might be to give them immediate medical care in case the epidemic sweeps through rapidly. Well, the sick will seek help when and from whom they desire to get treatment from in a free country.
It could also be to identify the un-vaccinated as threats to the healthy. If we are going to draw the line at who has been vaccinated and those who haven’t, IS IT NOT TRUE THAT ALL THOSE WHO ARE VACCINATED WILL BE SAFE FROM ALL THOSE WHO ARE POTENTIALLY SICK FROM THE DISEASE THEY ARE VACCINATED AGAINST? Here in lies that problem with the possibility of mandatory to get a vaccination. The disease is only a possibility. The vaccine is experimental and untested thoroughly. Why should you make anyone take this risk they are not willing to take if all those who do will be safe? What is it about this vaccine or any they make mandatory.
If this plan comes here and I refuse to get the vaccine, I guess I won’t be getting my bracelet. Maybe I will be getting a yellow Star of David patch to wear instead. Then maybe the trains will come to take all us brave people to a nice country retreat. Oh wait……that story sounds so familiar…….
Maybe not today or even tomorrow, but the tools of tyranny and genocide are ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS the same.
Boston launches flu shot tracking
City to pinpoint areas of low rates of vaccination
Using technology originally developed for mass disasters, Boston disease trackers are embarking on a novel experiment – one of the first in the country – aimed at eventually creating a citywide registry of everyone who has had a flu vaccination.
The resulting vaccination map would allow swift intervention in neighborhoods left vulnerable to the fast-moving respiratory illness.
The trial starts this afternoon, when several hundred people are expected to queue up for immunizations at the headquarters of the Boston Public Health Commission. Each of them will get a bracelet printed with a unique identifier code. Information about the vaccine’s recipients, and the shot, will be entered into handheld devices similar to those used by delivery truck drivers.
Infectious disease specialists in Boston and elsewhere predicted that the registry approach could prove even more useful if something more sinister strikes: a bioterrorism attack or the long-feared arrival of a global flu epidemic. In such crises, the registry could be used to track who received a special vaccine or antidote to a deadly germ.
“Anything you can do to better pinpoint who’s vaccinated and who’s not, that’s absolutely vital,” said Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research & Policy at the University of Minnesota
