From the article:
On a drizzly Friday, an IHS outreach team walked the streets of Waikiki looking for people to vaccinate.
“Would you be interested in a flu vaccine?” said Justin Phillips asked a homeless person. (SIC)
The traveling clinic was a first — so it wasn’t clear how many people would accept the vaccination.
Turned out, the majority of people who were offered the shot agreed to get one. In the first hour, outreach nurses went through half of their supply.
But it’s not just happening in the Aloha state. Big cities like Atlanta are vaccinating the homeless too.
Interestingly the mainstream Hawaii source says they’re now approaching homeless people (who knows their physical or mental state of being) to help “stop ER visits”. and keep them “healthy” with the flu shot.
That’s funny because the flu shot is ineffective and the CDC stated Hawaii is the only place not having a “flu epidemic” this season. Even if they now think there is an epidemic there, is this the way to solve it? Oh and they appear to have announced that well before this “vaccinate the homeless on the street” campaign.
See all our sources at the bottom of the article.
All that is needed is a short consent form, a few questions and a signature by the homeless folks.
One must wonder what repercussions could happen from giving people with no medical history available, a potentially dangerous vaccine. They are living in the streets, after all.
We did use several different browsers to try and watch the video of their heavy usage site, but alas their video player would not play, and the site, despite it’s wild popularity, wasn’t working so well.
We here at HNN feel giving random homeless strangers vaccines is unethical at best.
They say they plan to have more clinics in the near future, as this has been such a big hit. We can only wonder what other vaccinations they’ll have in store.
Again, the flu shot is proven to be ineffective this year, (like just about every year) and has side effects listed on the insert such as paralysis and death.
