Only a few days after news broke of widespread resistance to the COVID-19 vaccine among hospital workers in Chicago USA, BeckersHospitalReview.com’s Ayla Ellison reports that the virus of vaccine mistrust is spreading. The vaccine in question is the Pfizer – BioNTec jab, which allegedly works by changing recipients DNA but is known to be causing serious allergic reactions in a significant number of people who reeive it. You will not have heard or read about any of this from mainstream media of course.
Many employees at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C., are also expressing reservations about taking the COVID-19 vaccine now being rolled out across the USA. CEO Anita Jenkins is trying to get workers to follow her lead by getting vaccinated, according to CNN. The hospital received 725 doses of the Pfizer vaccine Dec. 15 and expects to receive a second shipment this week. As of Dec. 18, only about 600 of the hospital’s 1,900 employees had agreed to have the shots, according to Kaiser Health News.
“There is a high level of mistrust and I get it,” Ms. Jenkins told Kaiser Health News.
“People are genuinely afraid of the vaccine.”
The vaccination numbers, though low, still exceeded expectations, Ms. Jenkins told CNN. An internal hospital survey of about 350 employees in early November showed that 70 percent were not willing to take the COVID-19 vaccine or would not take it immediately after it became available.
Ms. Jenkins received the shot Dec. 15 in hopes of inspiring staff to get vaccinated. She’s part of a widespread effort by healthcare experts and community leaders to combat vaccine hesitancy among Black Americans. About 35 percent of Black Americans said they probably or definitely would not get the vaccine if it was determined to be safe by scientists and widely available for free, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation study cited by CNN.
At Doctors Hospital at Renaissance in Edinburg, Texas, so many workers declined the COVID-19 vaccine that the hospital offered doses to other medical workers in the region. The hospital was issued with 5,850 doses of the vaccine, but front line staff eligible for the vaccine, including those who work directly with COVID-19 patients, were opting to get it, DHR Health CMO Robert Martinez, MD, told ProPublica. according to ProPublica.
Could any of this be linked to the fact that earlier this year, while the vaccines were in development, manufactures were granted complete immunity from legal actions in cases of illness, injury or permanent disability resulting from being injected with their products.
“You start to see similar numbers across the country, all this mistrust and misinformation,” Dr. Martinez said
After the first day of trying to push the vaccine to its , DHR reached out to other hospitals and healthcare facilities in the area to offer shots of the vaccine. ProPublica reported that the vaccine ended up going to non-medical personnel as well.
As has been observed by, many new media commentators, nobody wants to be a guinea pig for a vaccine that was approved for use on humans without proper testing.
Dr. Offit, Vaccine Pusher in Chief is exposed as a liar.
Some time ago my editor-in-chief was the target of hate attacks by left wing sheeple for questioning the effectiveness of vaccines as anything but profit drivers for Big Pharma. Well Ian has thick skin so he was quite pleased to have provoked a few death threats. One of his targets howver was Dr. Offit who had famously said new born babies could have 10,000 vaccines at the same time without suffering harm. He has not fared so well, having become an object of ridicule.
The NHS doctors who get cash from healthcare firms for patient referrals
An investigation revealed incentives, often worth tens of thousands of pounds, have been offered to doctors by private healthcare companies in exchange for referring patients to their hospitals. The British Medical Journal reported claims that the doctors’ regulator, the General Medical Council (GMC), failed to act on a warning in 2012 that the practice of offering incentives was “widespread, particularly in London, and significant in value”.
Obesity pill to ‘replace treadmill’ being developed by Harvard University
A magic pill which burns away excess body fat has been one of the wet dreams of mad scientists for decades. Such a pill is now being developed at Harvard University. Researchers claim it could one ‘replace the treadmill.’ (This is daft as we still need exercise to maintain a healthy heart, muscles and bones.
Ebola outbreak caused by new strain never seen before; was it weaponized ask sceptical scientists?
Since we and other blogs reported the concerns of highly regarded virologists about the strain of ebola virus involved in the outbreak currently devastating three west African nations, several more experts have gone public to say that the current strain of Ebola virus plaguing Africa and slowly spreading to other continents is potentially much more lethal than previous strains identified by virologists.
Docors, Scientists Greased by Big Pharma? Told You So.
The Physician Payments Sunshine Act, which was passed by the US Senate with the help of an extensive investigation led by Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA), provisions that doctors who receive payoffs from drug or vaccine companies must disclose this when pushing new therapies or medical procedures from what would otherwise appear to be unbiased intentions.

NHS Money Wasting Machine And The One Budget That Is Never Cut

It’s about time someone prosecuted him, every version of Windows has been a crime against humanity. The man who made “Not fit for purpose” marketable quality, the man who made it possible for the NSA to spy on us all, has been protected for far to long by the US Government. Someyhing to do with his father having been a director of the CIA perhaps? …You may say that, I couldn’r possibly comment.
CDC Whistleblower Links MMR Vaccine to Autism
One day the truth will be revealed about the MMR vaccine and its alleged link to autism as well as a host of other health problems in young children. One question damns the case in favour of MMR as propaganda. If it is as important as health authorities say to vaccinate children against MMR, why insist on the triple vaccine when there was never a problem with a separate measles vaccine? Could Corporate Profits have something to do with it?
New malaria vaccine doesn’t work most of the time, but manufacturer says it’s good enough to sellOnce again we turn our attention to vaccines and the criminality of the drug companies that manufacture and sell them:
There’s a good chance that the vast majority of people who receive it won’t derive any benefits whatsoever. But that isn’t stopping British drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) from seeking regulatory approval for a new vaccine for malaria, known as RTS,S, that a recent study determined is only about 30 percent effective at preventing severe cases of the disease, which has no recognized cure.
Genetically Modified Truth? How Corpoate Money Corrupted Science.
Little Nicky is sceptical about many things, it’s in my job description. Incidentally, for the benefit of those over qualified, under educated idiots who think I’m right wing extremist, it is a basic tenet of Liberal philosophy that we all have a duty to question that which is presented as an established truth.
