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
