0 Flulapalooza!, Old world record smashed as 12,647 vaccinated in 8 hours

People didn’t even have to stand in line Wednesday during Flulapalooza as Vanderbilt University set a new world record for flu vaccinations.

The 12,647 who bared their arms easily surpassed the existing record of 6,215 flu shots given in an eight-hour period, but the results still have to be certified by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Faculty, staff and students zipped through the vaccination tent simply by having their identification badges scanned. The shots were free.
By 1 p.m. they had broken the old record set last October by Kaiser Permanente in San Diego. By the event’s end at 3 p.m., they had more than doubled the old record.
Wearing red vests, 44 vaccinators staffed stations within a white tent perched in the heart of the university’s medical complex. They worked two- to four-hour shifts, assisted by volunteers wearing blue vests.
“It’s less than a minute,” said Pamela O. Jones, chief nursing officer at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Flulapalooza originated as a drill to test Vanderbilt’s capacity to respond to a pandemic, said Dr. Thomas R. Talbot, chief of infectious diseases. Making it a world-record event generated excitement among students. One walked up to Talbot with a bandage on her arm and asked him if it was OK to get a flu shot after giving blood.
He nodded yes and she dashed toward the tent. Other students came in wheelchairs. Health-care workers in uniforms and professors in ties also got their shots.
Talbot said VUMC is considering whether to make flu vaccinations mandatory for its health-care workers — a policy that HCA implemented last year and one that the board of trustees for the American Hospital Association endorsed this summer. The organization represents more than 5,000 hospitals and health systems.
The scanned identification badges will allow Vanderbilt to determine which health-care workers got their vaccinations.
Only 63 percent of health-care workers nationwide got their flu shots last year, according to a survey conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

'Protect your baby'

Daniel Brown of Nashville, a postdoctoral fellow at Vanderbilt, got vaccinated on the week before his first child is due.
“As a parent you want to do everything you can to protect your baby,” Brown said. “They are going to get sick from all kinds of sources, but you don’t want it to be you.”
Families with young children, older adults and people with certain health conditions, such as diabetes, asthma and heart problems, are especially urged to get vaccinated.
Flulapalooza participation was limited to the Vanderbilt community, but Metro Health has a Fast Track Clinic scheduled Oct. 17-21 at the Lentz Health Center for people to get vaccinations with shorter-than-normal wait times. The shots are $20.

Wow...this story just so disgusting in so many ways, I don't know what to say......

but watching and reading the below, and doing your OWN research into WHAT? exactly you are having injected and WHY? would be a start. 
Where did "ethics" in the medical community go anyway??......
into A large Pharmaceutical Company bank account that's where.

At the end of the eighteenth century, British physician Edward Jenner, with highly questionable medical credentials, initiated the theory and practice of live virus immunization that continues to serve as the scientific basis for the ever increasing vaccination of the world's citizens. With the number of vaccinations given to infants and children rising, kids are receiving doses of toxic mercury and other heavy metals well above environmental safety levels.

Yet the medical evidence is clear. Mercury, known as thimerosal, and other heavy metal additives are highly toxic and threaten children with neurological damage. The long-term efficacy of global vaccination remains controversial, inconclusive and is suspect in light of the powerful corporate interests, lobbying efforts, and profits associated with a multi-billion dollar vaccine industry..
In his documentary film Vaccine Nation, award-winning investigative film director Dr. Gary Null challenges the basic health claims by government health agencies and pharmaceutical firms that vaccines are perfectly safe. This is one of the most critical questions facing today's children and future generations to come. If inoculation with a large regimen of vaccines is safe, what can account for the rapid increase in autism and other mental disabilities that are now at epidemic proportions? And why isn't the sudden onset of neurological illnesses in children being treated as an urgent crisis by our government and medical industries?

Weaving together interviews with many of the nations most expert medical researchers, private physicians specializing in autism, parents of children victimized by immunization, congressmen, vaccination activists, legal authorities and more, Vaccine Nation will awaken viewers to one of the continual perils to the health and future of children.
