Deputies Hold Boy Who Fled Flu Shot ( Obama Care ? )
Intelligencer / Wheeling News-Register ^ | November 11, 2009 | SHELLEY HANSON

Posted on 11/13/2009 6:57:01 PM PST by george76

Student refused; was held down for vaccination.

It took the strength of two sheriff's deputies to keep a middle schooler still enough to receive a shot of the swine flu, or H1N1, vaccine at a recent clinic.

During a regular Wheeling-Ohio County Health Board meeting Tuesday, health department Administrator Howard Gamble told board members about the student's attempt to flee Wheeling Middle School during a vaccination clinic held there last Friday.

He noted the boy's mother could not bear to watch the scene and left the gymnasium.

"He tried to run. I looked over and saw two sheriff's deputies holding a kid down," Gamble said. "Mom took off, she couldn't take it. You had one nurse with the needle, two deputies holding him, one nurse is grabbing hands - because that's what they want to do, to go after the needle. And that's the last thing you want."

“For the most part they go very easy. As far as the shots, every once in awhile you have to hold down one or two”

I just don”t think I would let someone hold my child down to give them a shot against their will. It just doesn’t seem right to do that..

I believe you would call it justifiable homicide ... and yes I would have to agree with you whole heartedly.

It's quite easy to have a violent allergic reaction ~ even a deadly violent allergic reaction to the egg albumin used to make flu vaccine.

These two deputies, neither of whom was qualified to evaluate an allergy, and the nurses involved, could have easily murdered this child.

Tell you what, anyone forces me to take a flu shot (I have the allergy) if I survive long enough I will hunt them down and slaughter them like the vermin they are.

A smart lawyer should get right on this case, take the boy’s side, get the mother’s permission to sue, and go at it. This was a kidnapping, an assult, and several other forms of legal abuses.

When I was a kiddo in the ‘50s I remember several years in a row finding out it was shot-day. I spent all day up a pine tree. They never were able to get me down. It was well worth the whippings I got to delay those shots.

Actually, if they did this the way they did in my county (I teach in WV), the kids were NOT given the vaccine unless their parents returned the permission form.

Chances are, if the kid was in line for a vaccine, Mom probably signed up for it. Parents have the right to make medical decisions for their kids. They do it at school because they can get them all done in a single day.

No where in the article did it say that the shots were mandatory.

I don’t have a problem with “no right to refuse” when we’re talking about middle-schooler whose parents want him to get the vaccination.

Two sheriff’s deputies - What were these sheriff deputies doing there in the first place.

Will there be police, fbi, sheriff deputies, or cia at all facilities giving shots?

They were doing shots at the county fairground in Hillsdale County Michigan. All I could think was that there were a lot of farm animals at the grounds each week, and dirt and germs tracked all over the place. I can’t believe there wasn’t another clinic available for the shots. Just plain weird.

Why were there law enforcement officers helping give shots? Does that go on at your doctor’s office? The cops should have told mom, “Your son doesn’t want a shot. You will have to take care of this yourself.”

It looks like the sheriff’s deputies and the school authorities were acting as the agents of the mother, who had requested ad arranged for the shots. Most children do not want to be stuck with a needle, but, just as in this situation, it is the parent’s decision not the child’s. It is unfortunate that the mother, having set everything up, failed in her duty to comfort and restrain her child and ran out on her son.

About 40 years ago I remember standing in a long line to get my kids some new shot (don't remember which it was, senior moment) They were fine (except 1 out of the 5) and it took 2 guys to hold him down to give him the shot...He wasn't against THAT shot, he hated needles and still does to this day.

My husband looked at me and said "that's the last time I take that kid for a shot". But it was NOT government mandated...The government only mandated Polio, and the pertussin and 2 others (another senior moment) Couldn't have been mumps, measles or chicken pox as they all had those..

You cannot force by mandate or under color of authority, forced immunization, using some goo that has never been tested for predictable efficacy rates or known side effects.

Further, in many parts of the country this goo is being delivered with a homogeneous carrier of mercury. Can you believe it? Mercury. Weird, my mother warned me about mercury all my life.

Lastly, there is more than ample evidence that the Swine Bull has mortality rates taht are sub par to other strains of flu. In fact, for every case requiring hospitalization, less than 1% will end in death.

Each life is valuable but, when weighed against the odds of a cure that is not guaranteed in any way nor are the side effects known, why take something that could injure you, when you have a greater likely hood of surviving, as a whole person.

Now, remind me again why the government provided blanket immunity of litigation for what could be simple syrup being injected or goo from a contaminated super dump.

Anyone? Anyone?

My God, I am so thankful my kids are in college and I don’t have to deal with these fascist pigs anymore. When my youngest son graduated, I felt I was released from prison. So did he! Between the oldest and the youngest, the schools too a turn for the fascist and abusive side. Now it is even worse for families.

I believe it is a true phobia.

I had to get one of my anthrax series shots last year in the Green Zone (Baghdad.) My wait at the CASH seemed longer than usual. Finally, a somewhat pale, but big, young strapping Marine left the little office and I was ushered in for my shot.

The medic apologized for the wait by explaining that the Marine had passed out cold after the needle went in. He said that it's not unusual...there are perfectly healthy, stable, brave adults who are petrified of needles.

Read the article. This appears to be the sort of school where at least one sheriff’s deputy is a permanent fixture, as “the school’s resource officer”. According to the county health department administrator, additional deputies were “mostly there for parking and directions.” The kid bolted out of the building (i.e. potentially towards the parking area and at risk of running into the path of a car). His mother had brought him to get the shot, and apparently wasn’t up to chasing him. The sheriff’s deputies were just helping ensure the boy got the vaccination that his mother had brought him to get. Not a problem. It’s silly to get worked up over this sort of thing. There are plenty of incidents where school officials and law enforcement really do violate students’ basic rights, like the strip search incidents, and arresting and handcuffing tantrum-throwing kindergarteners for kicking the teacher.
