- Contact your own US Senators and ask them to oppose S.1203 unless it is amended to remove the section that requires the VA “ensure” veterans receiving medical services from the VA receive each vaccine on the adult schedule.

VACCINES AND VETERANS — MANDATES AND PENDING LEGISLATION
FROM THE NATIONAL VACCINE INFORMATION CENTER:
“To veterans from NVIC Advocacy — If you are a veteran or have friends or loved ones who are veterans, there is currently a bill moving through the US Senate concerning veterans and vaccines. NVIC Advocacy is tracking this bill on the portal at www.nvicadvocacy.org
S.1203 is sponsored by Senator Dean Heller, Republican from Nevada.
This bill is long and has several proposals in it. One Section of this bill would require the VA to ensure that veterans receiving medical services from the VA receive each immunization on the recommended adult immunization schedule at the time such immunization is indicated on that schedule.
While the VA should make all vaccines available to veterans, veterans should not be forced or coerced to get every vaccine on the adult schedule in order to meet quality measures or metrics, which this bill proposes. If passed this has the potential to force veterans into getting a vaccine they may not want in order to receive medical services.
This bill was heard by the Senate Veterans’ and Affairs committee and is currently on the Senate Calendar under general orders.
ACTION NEEDED: 1) Contact Senator Heller and ask him to remove the section of S.1203 that requires the VA “ensure” veterans receiving medical services from the VA receive each vaccine on the adult schedule. These vaccines should be available on a voluntary basis and not coerced or forced in any way to meet quality measures or metrics.

According to the Veterans Affairs Committee Report — https://www.congress.gov/congressional-report/114th-congress/senate-report/153/1?
Section 101 of this bill would require the VA to report to Congress each year on programs conducted during the previous fiscal year to ensure that veterans have received each immunization on the recommended adult immunization schedule at the time such immunization is indicated on that schedule.
The bill would also require VA to submit to Congress, within 2 years of enactment, a report on the development and implementation of quality measures and metrics to ensure that veterans receiving medical services from VA receive each immunization on the recommended adult immunization schedule at the time such immunization is indicated on that schedule.

Someone had originally posted the following on my page and I have been looking over the bill and the CDC adult vaccination schedule, and it all is positively frightening. This is going to end up being a very important issue for Veterans that have already been screwed over by mandatory vaccinations and the resulting health issues that the VA tries not to cover or pay for…
Original post on my Facebook page:
US Senate bill: S1203 Here is where all military veterans will be subjected to ALL vaccines for the FULL schedule for the rest of their lives including an annual flu shot OR lose their medical. What a wonderful way to award the people who put their lives on the line to defend our freedom! Looks like they lose their “freedom” to choose what vaccines they want — if any. But it sure is a wonderful gift to the pharmaceutical companies — a reward for their “service” in campaign donations. Lock in students, nurses, teachers and military — who’s next for forced vaccinations?
(I wrote this last part to my friend under the post) ***Remember, active duty military are already LOCKED IN, they get an unknown schedule of vaccinations while in basic training and throughout their military service. They cannot opt out. This could include experimental vaccines or vaccines that have not been tested. Veterans however are currently not required to take vaccines, we can still refuse/opt-out at VA facilities. Medically licensed people here in Florida for example can opt out of everything except the TB test. But if this bill becomes law, for Veterans it will change. This is MEDICAL TYRANNY!
Veterans of course want the right to choose and the right to informed consent, not forced mandates. Forced mandates are nothing more than medical tyranny. We veterans were on the front lines to assure that tyranny of all kinds does not happen in this country. We took an oath to defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I hope veterans remember that vow. It does apply to corporate rule as our government is now owned, has been usurped by the corporations. Vaccines in most cases do not cure or protect us, but make could make some of us sicker and definitely create a huge and continuing revenue stream for Big Pharma.
In many cases the military has already poisoned we veterans with exposures that we did not know about or consent to and as I mentioned above, vaccines that were experimental, or not tested or not tested adequately. We were also in close proximity to weapons and chemicals that were toxic and poison and sometimes without any protective or HAZMAT gear. Many of the conditions we veterans now have were due to those exposures during our military service (the VA website confirms a lot of this, including Diabetes 2, Agent Orange exposure, Leukemia exposures to chemicals, Gulf War Syndrome and so many more).
What is important to note is the current CDC adult schedule that would be required by this legislation would mean over 90 vaccinations for each veteran. Many people wonder if the mandating of vaccines COULD BE a eugenics program. And the most important question, at what cost, who will inevitably pay and who benefits?
The powers that be already don’t want to pay for sick veterans and they have made that abundantly clear in what they say, how they legislate and their continued stripping of our rights to adequate health care and benefits. There seems to be few problems and plenty of money to CREATE sick veterans in corporate wars and conflicts in 140+ countries around the world.
There are many more vaccination mandate bills being floated around, here is a comprehensive list and more information:
This has everything to do with creating a corporate/revenue stream, to absolve the government from paying out and to reward Big Pharma. Veterans entered into the military thinking that they were upholding our FREEDOMS, not bowing to Tyranny!
I am not an “anti-vaxxer” and do not bow to that inaccurate term that the Medical Industrial Complex and Big Pharma uses. I am a concerned citizen, a veteran, a widow of a military member and I come from a military family. I am for informed consent and I am pro-choice regarding what happens to my body (same as with my legal right to an abortion as a woman). I earned that right. I gave up 4 years of my life to have that right. I am attempting to assure that others have that right.
