Quarantine forms September 24, 2009

Filed under: The E.C.H.O. Foundation — dottys @ 11:03 pm

Hi folks, I looked over some of these forms and I have to say I am not completely convinced they are all real documents. However, I am confident quarantine policies have been established and will be put into effect. 
I also believe plans can be foiled and that is what I am putting my faith in. In all the years of doing this, this is the FIRST time I have seen so much resistence. I am pleased that people are getting educated and waking up. I believe whole heartedly in the human spirit and the power of the divine. Just fasten your seatbelt and hang tight because this fall is going to be a ride!!

God Bless, Dotty Scalco

According to the CDC, the following states have implemented legal actions in response to the H1N1 virus:

Florida – the Florida surgeon general suspended distribution permit requirements Florida statutes to allow wholesale distribution of Tamiflu and Relenza. The state has also distributed a series of blank quarantine order forms, including a voluntary home quarantine agreement, a quarantine to residence order, a quarantine to residence order (non-compliance), a quarantine to facility order, quarantine detention order, quarantine of facility order, building quarantine closure order and area quarantine closure order.

Iowa – In addition to the facility quarantine order listed above, Iowa has also made available forms for voluntary home confinement, home quarantine and home isolation.

Massachusetts – Massachusetts lists its own procedures for isolation and quarantine.

North Carolina – The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services released a draft isolation order that would provide for imprisonment for up to two years and pretrial detention without bail for any citizen who fails to comply with an isolation order.

Washington – Washington grants authority to local health officers to issue emergency detention orders causing citizens to be immediately and involuntarily isolated or quarantined for up to 10 days.

The Power of One September 22, 2009

Good morning.No make that GREAT MORNING!
 A personal note is in order for today.
 Never underestimate the power of one.
   Recently I have been in touch with an old friend. She was extremely concerned because her son’s private school was going to be administering the Flu mist vaccine. This was of course on a voluntary basis, but my girl, Susan, was still very distressed about the ramifications of bringing the Flu Mist into the school.
Susan took it upon herself to do some research, type up a letter to the school administrator, and make a few phone calls, including one to the physician who was going to administer the vaccine.
In her letter she included some very compelling information including this from the Vaccine Information Statement page ( VIS) ;  “Vaccine recipients or their parents./guardians should be informed by their health care provider that Flu Mist is an attenuated live virus vaccine and has the potential for transmission in immunocompromised household contacts. “
Of course Susan got a lot of huffing and puffing laced with some insults and rude remarks but she stood her ground. Yesterday, Susan called me to tell me, the Flu Mist vaccine campaign has been cancelled!!
I want to send out a congratulations to her. She was passionate, sincere and remained level headed. That is what creates miracles.
I know there are many of you on this list that have spent their free time educating and passing along great information. We take a risk when we stick our neck out. Lord knows I have lost many a friend over my crazy antics. But ya know what, I gained a hundred more in return!
I want to thank all of you for supporting me throughout the years and for doing your part.
In health, light and love, Dotty Scalco

written several years ago but same dangers

“A cause for significant concern is the vaccine’s most prevalent side effects: “runny nose” and “nasal congestion.” It has been documented that the live viruses from the vaccine can be shed (and potentially spread into the community) from recipient children for up to 21 days,[8] and even longer from adults.[9] Viral shedding also puts breastfeeding infants at risk if the mother has been given FluMist.[10]”

“In addition to shedding via nasal secretions, the virus can be dispersed through sneezing. “

“In the section of the FlumMist package insert labeled “PRECAUTIONS,” the manufacturer states the following warning:

“FluMist® recipients should avoid close contact with immunocompromised individuals for at least 21 days.””

“One of the most troubling concerns over the injection of this “chemical soup” is the potential for the viruses to enter directly into the brain. At the top of the nasal passages is a paper-thin bone called the cribriform plate. The olfactory nerves pass through this bone and line the nasal passages, carrying messenger molecules to the brain that are identified as “smells” familiar to us. The olfactory tract has long been recognized as a direct pathway to the brain. Intranasal injection of certain viruses has resulted in a serious brain infection called encephalitis, presumably by direct infection of the olfactory neurons that carried the viruses to the brain.[19] Time will tell whether the live viruses in FluMist will become linked to cases of encephalitis.”

Risks of FluMist Vaccine

An Investigation By Red Flags Columnist, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny

www.nmaseminars.com

“MedImmune, the manufacturer of FluMist, recently announced that it signed an agreement that makes FluMist, the new intranasal influenza vaccine, readily available to people as they shop at Wal-Mart, the worlds biggest retailer.” [1]

As the physician in charge of a bustling Integrative medical clinic, questions about vaccines frequently arise. After reading about the MedImmune-Walmart joint venture, I felt compelled to warn our patients and our internet subscribers of the potentially serious complications that may come from direct and passive exposure to this new vaccine. I also wanted to give a “heads up” to everyone regarding the onslaught of advertising that is about to besiege them.

Hundreds of TV and print advertisements have been designed to persuade everyone into taking the FluMist plunge. The campaign will be the “most intense, direct-to-consumer marketing campaign ever waged for a vaccine,” costing an estimated $25 million over the next 2.5 months [2]. In addition, Wyeth, MedImmune’s partner, plans a three-year, $100 million campaign to encourage use of the nasal flu vaccine among physicians.[3]

The television arm of the blitz campaign will focus on the “inconveniences” that your family, friends and co-workers will endure if you don’t get the flu shot and subsequently contract the flu. Print advertisements and magazine articles apparently will use scare tactics­similar to those that were used while promoting the smallpox vaccine­which warned of the high possibility of a “bioterror attack using the flu virus.”[4]

Apparently, the goal seems to center around frightening­or inducing enough guilt­that everyone would begin to demand the vaccine as soon as it is available. And at nearly $70 a dose, this will be a financial bonanza for MedImmune and Wyeth, who are expecting the vaccine to become the blockbuster new drug that will push MedImmune’s revenues to more than $1billion/year. [5]

However, there are many reasons for caution. FluMist contains live (attenuated) influenza viruses that replicate in the nasopharynx of the vaccine recipient. The most common side effects include “cough, runny nose/nasal congestion, irritability, headaches, chills, muscle aches and fever > 100° F.”[6] These symptoms are nearly identical to those the flu vaccine is designed to prevent. [7]

A cause for significant concern is the vaccine’s most prevalent side effects: “runny nose” and “nasal congestion.” It has been documented that the live viruses from the vaccine can be shed (and potentially spread into the community) from recipient children for up to 21 days,[8] and even longer from adults.[9] Viral shedding also puts breastfeeding infants at risk if the mother has been given FluMist.[10]

In addition to shedding via nasal secretions, the virus can be dispersed through sneezing. What is the normal physiological response when an irritant enters the nasal passages? A sneeze…sometimes a big sneeze…sometimes several big sneezes. Therefore, the risk for shedding­and spreading­live viruses throughout a school, church, workplace, or store — especially one which is administering the vaccine.

In the section of the FlumMist package insert labeled “PRECAUTIONS,” the manufacturer states the following warning:

“FluMist® recipients should avoid close contact with immunocompromised individuals for at least 21 days.”

The warning is specifically directed toward those living in the same household with an immunocompromised person, but the on-going release of live viruses throughout the community may be a significant risk to everyone who has a weak, or weakened, immune system.

The number of immunocompromised people in the United States is enormous:

    * It is estimated that at least 10%, or more than 28 million people have eczema. [11]
    * More than 8.5 million people have cancer. [12]
    * There are reported to be 850,000 individuals with diagnosed and undiagnosed HIV infection or AIDS [13] and
    * Based on 2001 data, there were 184,000 organ recipients [14]

An even more extensive list of at-risk people includes the untold millions on drugs called corticosteroids. Prednisone®, Medrol®, and a variety of similar medications are given to both adults and children. These drugs are prescribed for dozens of conditions including asthma; allergies; eczema; emphysema; Crohn’s disease; multiple sclerosis; herniated spinal discs; acute muscular pain syndromes; and all types of rheumatoid and autoimmune diseases. As much as 60% of the entire population could be considered to be “chemically immunosuppressed.” It is important to realize that FluMist is CONTRAINDICATED for people who are immunocompromised. People who receive FluMist and are living with an immunocompromised person put their loved ones at risk.

Will this make stores that administer the vaccines­like Walmart and the other pharmaceutical chain stores that have announced they will carry FluMist [15]­risky places to shop for large segments of the population? What measures will be taken in these stores to ensure that the virus will not become commingled with food? What hand washing policy is going to be enforced in the stores for all Walmart employees and customers who have received FluMist? These are reasonable questions that deserve answers.

The target market for FluMist is “healthy children and adults, ages 5 to 49 yrs.” Some believe that by vaccinating these people, a type of “herd immunity” will occur that will protect the very young and the elderly who are excluded from getting this vaccine. However, it is these very “at-risk” populations who may suffer the most from the flu by being exposed to people who are given FluMist.

According to information presented at the May, 2003 National Influenza Summit,[16] approximately 85% of Americans between the ages of 20 and 50 go unvaccinated, and nearly 66% between the ages of 50 and 64 do not receive the flu vaccine. Have there been “raging epidemics” across the country due to lack of flu vaccinations? It appears that the massive campaign to vaccinate everyone this year appears may be motivated, in part, by economics.

The viruses suspected to be the most likely cause for the flu this season were negligibly different from the strains used in last year’s flu vaccine. Therefore, the influenza vaccine produced for the 2003-2004 season is identical in composition to the one used last year. This marks only the second time that the same strains have been used during two consecutive flu seasons.[17] Consider that antibodies from other viral vaccines­such as MMR, polio and chickenpox vaccines­last at least 3 years, and in some instances, up to 15 years. If the viruses used in the vaccine are the same as last year, why is this year’s vaccine even necessary?

An ever greater concern about FluMist is the contents within the vaccine. Each 0.5ml of the formula contains 10 6.5-7.5 particles of live, attenuated influenza virus. That means that between 10 million and 100 million viral particles will be forcefully injected into the nostrils when administered. The viral strain was developed by serial passage through “specific pathogen-free primary chick kidney cells” and then grown in “specific pathogen-free eggs.” That means that the culture media was free of pathogens that were specifically tested for, but not a culture that was necessarily “pathogen-free.” The risk that the vaccine may contain contaminant avian retroviruses still remains. In addition, a stabilizing buffer containing potassium phosphate, sucrose (table sugar) and nearly 0.5 mg of monosodium glutamate (MSG) is added to each dose. [18]

One of the most troubling concerns over the injection of this “chemical soup” is the potential for the viruses to enter directly into the brain.. At the top of the nasal passages is a paper-thin bone called the cribriform plate. The olfactory nerves pass through this bone and line the nasal passages, carrying messenger molecules to the brain that are identified as “smells” familiar to us. The olfactory tract has long been recognized as a direct pathway to the brain. Intranasal injection of certain viruses has resulted in a serious brain infection called encephalitis, presumably by direct infection of the olfactory neurons that carried the viruses to the brain.[19] Time will tell whether the live viruses in FluMist will become linked to cases of encephalitis.

The pharmaceutical companies do not necessarily always do a reasonable job of considering the “down side” when they are pushing new drugs or new vaccines. FluMist has the potential for causing the worst, most severe flu epidemic seen in years. Parents tell their young children not to put things up their noses because they might cause them harm. It would be wise to consider that advice for adults. With all the risks involved, one should be extremely cautious about what one allows to be sprayed in one’s nose.

This is a story from ABC news about a 17 year old girl whose application for citizenship will be rejected if she does not take the Gardasil vaccination. She has been living in the US since she was 3 years old. Even though she is not yet a citizen and therefore falls into a different category, 18 states are considering making the vaccine mandatory. The last line in the article says it all: “How can they call this America, the land of the free?” she asked. “Where are my parental rights?” It is not a long article, and definitely worth the read.
