Campaign opposing mandatory H1N1 flu shots (Tucson TV4)

• KVOA Ch 4 Tucson

Homemade signs are poping up in Tucson with a skull and syringe. The message is aimed at supporting first responders who don't want to take the H1N1 vaccine.

Ernie Hancock, who runs the libertarian website Freedoms Phoenix, launched the campaign in response to health care workers in New York being mandated to take the swine flu vaccine.

"I claim what's in my skin. I will not allow a bureaucrat to force anything to go into my skin without my permission," says Hancock.

Patti Hancock with The Pima County Health Department hopes Tucsonans don't become frightened by the signs. She's adamant the swine flu vaccine is safe and unlike New York, doesn't foresee required shots here.

"But as far as mandating it, no, we're encouraging everyone to get their seasonal vaccine and the H1N1 when it becomes available," says Patti Hancock.

 The flu, what ever you want to name it is at about thirty percent in schools in Montana now.  Some schools have closed and to get in to see a doctor is a two day wait.

By the time the vaccine gets here and is sold out half the people will have already had it.

So the worry about taking the precaution is at this point lost up here.  Go on line and read about this flue, it will scare you and you will understand why they will not contain it.
