FLU VACCINATION MANDATE: AN OPEN LETTER TO SECRETARY OF HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES DR. TOM PRICE: GEORGIA ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON
Dr. Price, Congratulations on being chosen by President-Elect Donald Trump as the new Secretary of Health and Human Services.
As a supporter of individual rights when it comes to healthcare, I need to bring an important matter to your attention. As you know, annual flu vaccinations, despite a near-zero rate of efficacy, have been mandated for each and every American healthcare worker (doctors, nurses, food service, janitors, maintenance, IT, techs, management, etc, etc). Here in the United States, public health decisions are supposedly made according to the “Best Evidence”. If this were really the case, you wouldn’t be receiving a letter about a forced intervention that has performed as poorly as the Flu Vaccine has.
I’ve gathered the pertinent research on this topic to show legislators just how ineffective the flu vaccine really is at preventing the flu, then compiled it into one place (HERE). According to a recent Cochrane Review of dozens upon dozens of studies, “The preventive effect of parenteral inactivated influenza vaccine [flu shots] on healthy adults is small: 71 people would need vaccination to prevent one case of influenza“. As a physician yourself, you should already be aware of this.
America’s Flu Vaccine Mandate is a horrendous taxpayer expense that does little more than line the pockets of big pharma and the bureaucrats who pushed it. After reviewing the summary of the peer-reviewed literature that I’ve provided for you, please consider repealing this legislation. The same should also be done for our fighting forces, as all active-duty military, National Guard, and students at schools on military bases, have also recently seen the annual flu vaccine mandated. Thank you.

I would ask my readers to help this letter make the rounds on FACEBOOK, as well as contacting your legislators and HHS. If this kind of thing is not stopped, it’s only a matter of time before we will all be forced to bend over for whatever vaccines the government deems necessary for you and your children. Trust me when I say it could mean scores of them (HERE).
