I told you this summer how California passed a law (SB 277) that would throw kids out of day care and school if they didn’t get every vaccine the state required — including the flu shot.
But it looks like this foolish plan has gotten even more dangerous.
State health authorities are now requiring that doctors give flu shots laced with toxic levels of mercury to toddlers — even babies!
It’s a practice that was actually banned nearly a decade ago. And you’ll never believe the reason these California crazies are signing off on it now.
A poisonous poke
With the stroke of a pen, California Public Health Officer Karen Smith has just wiped off the books a law that was supposed to keep kids safe.
You see, nine years ago California actually banned the use of thimerosal in vaccines given to children. That’s a mercury preservative that should never be injected into anyone, but especially not young children with developing brains.
But now California is actually requiring doctors to endanger countless kids by giving them two doses of a thimerosal flu vaccine.
And it’s all because they’re claiming there wasn’t enough thimerosal-free vaccine made for kids this year.
Not enough flu vaccine? You’ve got to be kidding me! They’re practically selling two-liter bottles of the flu vaccine in the 7-11 this time of year!
But even if they’re running short (which sounds pretty dicey if you ask me), why on Earth would they rather have kids take their chances with mercury poisoning instead of flu?
Especially since mercury in vaccines has already been linked to:
- Damage to the brain and spinal cord
- Liver and kidney disease, and
California health officials are trying to cover their backsides by saying the law banning thimerosal flu vaccines for kids can actually be ignored in times of an epidemic. And they’ve gone right ahead and predicted a flu epidemic for this year.
But come on — they tell us there’s going to be an epidemic every year!
The fact is, no parents in their right minds would choose to have a thimerosal flu vaccine (which also includes cancer-causing formaldehyde and steroids) shot into their kids.
Especially when the flu shot has been proven borderline useless year after year.
But under California’s law — which, as I told you, requires a flu vaccination to attend school and even daycare — that decision is being taken right out of parents’ and grandparents’ hands.
If you live in California and your pediatrician claims he doesn’t have any thimerosal-free vaccine, shop around until you find a doc who does.
And if you don’t live in California, keep your ears open to see if this so-called shortage is affecting your state (I’ll be sure to provide you with updates as we learn more).
Because there’s a good chance your child or grandchild could end up getting one of these toxic shots without you ever knowing it.
And I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a risk that none of our children should ever be asked to take.
Remember, “you the people gave these politicians power at the ballot box they now use to poison children “
