The video of that poor defenseless girl being forced to take 5 shots at once is more disturbing than any horror film I’ve ever seen. Denver is just the start. We must HIDE THE CHILDREN. ~jg

Some memorable quotes from the above article..
“This is the most important preventative service we can offer children,” said Dr. Judith Shlay, a family physician at Denver Health who is the project’s principal investigator.
Offering inoculations at school makes life much easier for parents, who don’t need to leave work to drive kids to a clinic or doctor’s office. They just sign consent forms that are sent home, and then everything is done at school.
Parents never see a bill. The health insurance plans are billed directly.
Funding for the program comes from two grants from the CDC totaling $1.6 million.
The program is run by a partnership made up of Denver Public Schools, Denver Health, the University of Colorado Denver and Kaiser Permanente.
It’s being tested in 20 elementary schools and eight middle schools, where a total of 4,000 students are expected to receive vaccines by the end of this school year.
On Thursday, about 130 students at Henry Middle School were vaccinated for seasonal and H1N1 influenza, meningococcal meningitis and for tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. Girls also received HPV.
At the auditorium in Henry, students got a shot in each arm and a whiff of nasal spray.
“I was really scared at first,” said Cheyenne Schneider, 13. “I was really happy they did it all at once. I just felt a pinch. It turned out better than I thought.”
In Denver elementary schools, the children receive flu vaccines.
According to the CDC, during the 2007-08 school year, 21 percent of Colorado’s school-age kids who were not in high-risk groups were vaccinated against flu; 36 percent of the kids in high-risk groups received the inoculation.
“That’s not good,” Shlay said. “It should be higher.”
