What other Universities are urging students to get the H1N1 vaccine?
Auburn University in Auburn, AL is encouraging thousands of students to willingly receive H1N1 intranasal (FluMist) vaccines.

They have been conducting "vaccination clinics" for the past 3 weeks now, usually twice a week. Two more are scheduled this week and they are offering the vaccine at no charge to students, faculty, and next of kin.

They have stated on their website that 30,000 doses (more than student + faculty populations combined) have been ordered and that they do not expect injectable vaccine until mid-late December.

A large link on the student's email login page now reads "Why It's Important to Get the H1N1 Vaccine".

This link provides the following .pdf:

Their updated FAQ and H1N1 page is located here:

They even have a link for a video: "NEW - H1N1 Vaccine Video -- View Now!"

As of the last email update I received, Auburn has vaccinated over 1600 students.

Does anyone else have any reports on the status of H1N1 vaccinations at other universities?

It is a shame to see the university encouraging so many students to take these poisonous shots when so many are unaware of the risks they face.

A better question would be which ones are not? I imagine most of them are following the CDC guidelines and pushing vaccinations.

I went to Samford University, and still live nearby. So I'll ask a few of my old professors if they've gotten any memos.

True, though it'd be nice to some cases where the administration is not forcing this upon their students.


I wonder if the (student) doctors/nurses who are administering these vaccines have any clue as to what they are actually injecting into people.

My guess is no for most.

Also, if they mandated the vaccine that would completely change the gravity of the situation.

Re: What other Universities are urging students to get the H1N1 vaccine?
Found this quote that pretty much sums it up inside the pdf:

"A new outbreak of H1N1 on campus is very likely after Thanksgiving and into the New Year, so if you want to
have protective immunity for the holidays and not disrupt your vacation plans, then the time to be vaccinated is
now.
" (Emphasis in original)

Seems like a pretty clear warning to me.

What the hell. The schools have got their money. They graduate and there will be no jobs for them. Might as well kill 'em.
