I signed the Petitionsite.com one.
That response sounds to me like Obama's words of assurance that no one has to take the shot, while at the very same time health workers are threatened with or given the sack - fine don't take it, but you won't have a job ....
"No decision has been taken to embark on a mass vaccination campaign...."
Doublespeak again... today on BBC news site it's saying "...the trial comes just a month before more than 11 million people considered to be most at risk from flu will be offered the swineflu vaccine. It will also be made available to more than 2 million health workers."
So over 13 million to start with then? So that's not "mass" vaccination..?
The "trial" they're talking about - it's on children between 6 months and 12 years (1000 of them) and it's started already.
Forcing the shots on us or not - ? The TV news headlines on 31st of May this year was "The BMA are discussing the introduction of mandatory vaccinations for children.." - parents benefits will be cut and children not allowed into state schools if vaccines refused..."Fear of measles epidemic" cited because of lowering of MMR uptake...
So no gun to the head then (yet), just withdrawal of income and excluding kids from school. Absolute freedom of choice for everyone, of course, how kind of the government.
