At the urging of the CDC, the State of Alaska is unleashing a pre-Christmas pro-jab campaign – imploring healthcare providers to pressure residents to submit to a trio of shots.

On Dec. 18, the state health department issued a mass email to healthcare workers, strongly encouraging them to follow new CDC recommendations aimed at combating low vaccination rates and increasing the percentage of Alaskans who have received Covid, influenza and RSV shots.

Sent through the Alaska Public Health Alert Network, the email warned of vaccination resistance nationwide, including in Alaska.

As of Dec. 12, just 13.4% of Alaskans over the age of six months had submitted to the latest rendition of the Covid shot. The state, however, wants everyone to get jabbed, unless they have contraindications.

Nationally, the CDC reports that just 7.7% of children six months to 17 years have received the new Covid shot, and only 17.2% of those 18 and older have the jab. Pregnant women are particularly reticent, with just 9.6% agreeing to take the shot.

With regards to the flu shot, only 18.5% of Alaskans have agreed to get it this year. That’s significantly lower than the 21.2% from two years ago.

When it comes to the RSV vaccination, 9% of Alaskans over 60 have taken the shot, compared to nearly 16% nationwide.

The latest effort to push Covid shots follows a long pattern in which the shots were initially rolled out under a scarcity model to get as many people signed up as possible.

According to the CDC new campaign messaging, the low vaccination rates are driven by concerns about harmful side effects, lack of healthcare worker recommendations, and many people simply forgetting to get shots.

To address this, the CDC is instructing state healthcare workers to double down on recommending, defending and administering the Covid jab and other immunizations. Additionally, the CDC wants healthcare providers to push patients to test, stay home when sick, wash their hands, and improve home ventilation.

While the CDC is warning about an uptick in hospitalizations for those with the flu, Covid and RSV, the alert fails to disclose that this is also the standard season when those illnesses are typically more common.

As with past CDC messaging, the agency downplays adverse reaction to Covid shots, despite widespread reports of serious consequences, including debilitating side effects and death.

The latest effort to push Covid shots follows a long pattern in which the shots were initially rolled out under a scarcity model to get as many people signed up as possible. Once this played out, millions of shots were released to the general public for free. This was followed by bribes, gift cards, raffles and other incentives. Once that tactic was exhausted, there came travel, work and educational mandates, followed by a hard sell to children, and a push for repeated “boosters.”

The current strategy involves lumping Covid jabs in with annual shots such as seasonal flu and school vaccines.

The conversation guide makes no mention of natural immunity, but instead urges providers to say, “Getting a flu, COVID-19, or RSV vaccine is a safer, more reliable way for your body to build protection…

It’s unclear whether this latest tactic will gain much traction, given the widespread skepticism over the CDC’s aggressive push for Covid jabs, combined with a refusal to give much credence to alternative treatments,  while continually downplaying serious adverse reactions.

Nevertheless, the CDC has provided healthcare workers with a new “conversation guide,” which is being disseminated by Alaska’s health department. It offers boilerplate talking points to help convince more individuals and parents to get on board with the shots.

Under the heading “Make a strong recommendation,” the guide suggests that healthcare providers say, “You are due for your flu and COVID-19 vaccines today. I’ve gotten these vaccines myself and recommend them for you too.”

It also coaches providers to use “motivational interviewing” techniques when patients are hesitant or resistant to a strong recommendation.” Additionally, the guide tells healthcare workers to “show empathy” and express curiosity about why patients are reticent to get jabbed.

“If a patient is resistant to your strong recommendation, ask to discuss vaccines further,” the guide states. “Respect the patient’s decision if they say no and ask if they would be willing to talk about vaccines at their next visit.”

It advises using “open-ended questions, affirm positive behaviors, reflect what you hear, and summarize the conversation: ‘What have you heard about these vaccines?’ ‘How does that make you feel?’ ‘On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely are you to get an influenza vaccine?’”

Ultimately, however, the CDC wants health workers to push its standard narrative that Covid, flu and RSV shots “are safe and are the most effective way to keep your family healthy,” adding that they should also state, “Side effects tend to be mild and temporary; serious adverse events are rare.”

The conversation guide makes no mention of natural immunity, but instead urges providers to say, “Getting a flu, COVID-19, or RSV vaccine is a safer, more reliable way for your body to build protection than taking the risk of getting very sick with a respiratory virus.”

The guide also tells providers to admit to patients that they “could still get sick after getting vaccinated. But your symptoms will usually be milder and less severe than if you did not receive the vaccine.”

The CDC wants these talking points widely disseminated via the media in advance of the holidays.

    When your pharmacist announced to you and everyone within listening distance that you havent had your vax, I believe that is a Hepa violation. Tell them so!

    • HP says:

      It’s not a violation and it’s spelled HIPAA. But I wouldn’t expect people who can’t even spell the acronym correctly to know what HIPAA does and doesn’t do. Conservatives just shout it like it’s some magic word, probably because they’re used to saying nonsense.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Please tell us why you believe that it is not a HIPAA violation?

      • HP says:

        FOH HIPAA prohibits your medical information ( insurance plans, medical conditions, and files) from being sold or shared with 3rd parties without your consent. No where does it cover or prohibit a pharmacist from informing you, that you haven’t gotten a routine vaccination.

      • Lobo says:

        “To EVERYONE in listening distance”.. “Some” Liberals just like to shout that it’s perfectly fine, and legal to violate HIPAA, as well as federal statutes/laws… … Then, … .. But, then, apparently, I am addressing a “liberal” , who assumes everyone who disagrees with “it” has to be a “conservative”… Right ???

      • John J Otness says:

        SPELLED J-E-R-K…

      • Lobo says:

        Again; HIPAA prohibits the sharing to “everyone listening” , any information, data, or “anything”, related to your medical records.. Key word(s) “everyone listening”.. That is covered under federal law(s).. Try again…

      • Greg says:

        Can you spell Dumbocrat…??

      • Charlotte says:

        You’re deflecting from the issue, which is the deadly vax. Joel has spelled out the details very well, yet again, for readers. If you like it go get some more. You apparently have been lobotomized by it already, so your decision-making ability is compromised. It’s great to know you can still spell HIPAA. Maybe the Dept of Health could use your help, as they are desperately trying to increase death rates. Now, stop wasting time, go get another vax! Get the RSV and the flu shot too. You could probably also use all the new childhood vaxxes that weren’t concocted yet.

        “The Privacy Rule protects all “individually identifiable health information” held or transmitted by a covered entity or its business associate, in any form or media, whether electronic, paper, or oral.”
        HP, you should’ve stopped at misspelling. It was your strongest and only accurate argument. Yes, it was silly and weak, but it was your strongest argument.
        Please try to do better and be more accurate in the future.

      • anon says:

        Well HP
        I hope you run out and get yours today

  • Chuck Anziulewicz says:

    I’ve had six “jabs” and no regrets. The one time I had COVID, it was pretty mild. Take your chances if you like. It’s natural selection.

    • Tamra Nygaard says:

      Have fun with all the cancer, Chuck. I’ll pass, thanks.

      • Lol says:

        That’s okay Tamra your head is already full of excrement

      • Chatam says:

        Right on Tamara! in my local area there have been 7 people who died of turbo cancer,brain and pancreatic.Chuck needs to read animal farm it’s an easy read I think he can grasp the meaning…maybe?

    • Lobo says:

      80 years old, no jabs, and no regrets.. It’s called.. “natural immunity”. Works pretty darned good.. No cardiac arrests, or blood clots.. And, I do not attempt to give any medical advice, or suggestions to anyone when it involves experimental treatments resulting from a WUHAN lab generated disease… Fauci loves the blood money though.

      • Obol says:

        You should try that “natural immunity” out with cancer and polio next. Tell us all how efficient the body is.

      • Friend of Humanity says:

        Oh boy, the jab-pushing trolls are out now! The trolls have been queued up for the final, big push to get everyone in the world jabbed per their demonic masters’ orders.

    • Matthew myers says:

      You are super intelligent. Thank you for your excellent, informative comment. Also, thank you for letting us know that you are on the left side of the Bell Curve.

    • DoneWithIt says:

      Only 6 jabs?
      Boost up – can never be to careful with getting a cold or the flu.
      Boost up and boost up often Chuck.
      We are praying for you.

    • anon says:

      “6 jabs and no regrets”
      Just wondering……will that be on your headstone?

  • AK Fish says:

    A covered pharmacy is permitted to disclose PHI relating to an individual’s vaccination status (e.g., that an individual has received a COVID-19 vaccination, the date of vaccination, the vaccine manufacturer) to a public health authority, such as a state or local public health agency. As such situations, the covered pharmacy may rely, if such reliance is reasonable under the circumstances, on a representation by the public health authority that the information requested constitutes the minimum necessary for the stated purpose(s) of the disclosure (e.g., to track and compare the effectiveness of different COVID-19 vaccines). Choosing to state that I have had 3 “jabs” and had COVID after the 2nd jav which was worse than the 3rd time I was vaccinated and got COVID months later (this fall). Last COVID was just a bad head cold with some body aches mild fever.

  • Pj Hall says:

    Whats really sad is this will add to people Not trusting the medical system. Many Countries are not pushing these, many Countries won’t keep them in stock. Too many people have died after getting the jab. Yes, we can’t talk about that, but it’s documented by life insurance companies. It’s sad that Fauci lied to us, for our own good, right. Guess what, we trust you Less now then before. It’s illegal river giving these without disclosing to the patient the risks. They are not minor. We have a right to know everything. We already know way more than they think we do.

  • Citizenkane says:

    Well Chuck, I’m glad you took all of that poison too. For folks like you, more poison, more better.

    • Lol says:

      Maybe you should chug some more horse tranquillisers that will really show him and those darn liberal doctors.

      • Lobo says:

        That’s okay, Lol… ( laid on lawn ).. The “horse tranquilizers actually do work very effectively, and don’t cause cardiac arrests, or blood clots.. which seem to affect the mental capacities of liberal horse butts,.. Laying On the Lawn.. Do a little research on that subject, where they have been “proven” highly effective, with no actual side effects..

    The Left:
    “Let’s be independent, together!”
    -Hermie the elf who wanted to be a dentist, to Rudolph, who ran away because his friends were making fun of him.

    -Yukon Cornelius

    Which character will you most resemble when you visit your doc this Christmas Season?

    • Lobo says:

      ” Independent together ” ?? .. I will go with the conservatives, who don’t typically try to insinuate, or push their ideologies on to everyone else… You are what you eat… Rudolph was smart… And, my doc agrees.

  • Citizenkane says:

    Good one LOL, actually even in my mid seventies I take no prescription drugs, never took illegal drugs or smoked cigs or pot. So LOL you can take another clot shot. More poison, more better. By the way I had Covid. Very much like the flu. Haven’t been sick since. Or been to the doctor.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Isn’t it curious Christmas is just around the corner and articles of Ann Zinc, and Covid shot restart, and dunleavy’s bloated budget arrived just in time for this sacred holiday!
    If your too dense to make the connection let me help you! Dunceleavy the chicken hearted is orchestrating this timing hoping that the Christmas season will soften the hearts of people, then after the holidays we will have forgotten the perpetrated timely bs!
    Merry Christmas from your government! You’ve been screwed again!

  • Susan Weir says:

    First off, lol, it isn’t a tranquilizer, it’s a award winning drug with many propensities and little, if any side affects. In animals it’s used as a dewormer. However, in humans,, it also has a whole list of advantageous properties, including antiviral. Get your propaganda straight before spouting off and showing everyone how ignorant you are!

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    ‘Merry Christmas with Klaus Schwab’

  • CD says:

    These “vaccinations” and that includes those outside of Covid Shots are being used for population control, I believe and am convinced because of my own research and experience.They only harm a certain percentage of the population to make those who have been harmed look like whiners. Look up Dr. Andy Wakefield and the persecution he went through because of his findings to the MMR shot. I know I have been harmed by the medical establishment which is a whole another story. The Doctors are the middleman with “white coat killers” among them. They trust what they are being taught and told by Big Pharma. Though there are those like in America’s Frontline Doctors who are fighting back. Look at how many pharmacies are part of the World Economic Forum.
    History shows that the witch doctor has as much power as the Chief of a tribe, sometimes even more. The CDC, NIH, Dept. Of Health and Human Services have turned into witch doctors. Taking advantage of their role (probably because they want to keep their jobs) to scare and intimidate people to follow an elite’s agenda.
    A former nurse from MI that I know said hospitals are following protocols with patients when that’s not how medicine should work. It’s like an art becasue human beings are all different.
    Dr. Shiva Ayidurai has accused the TH Chan Harvard School of Public Health of being infiltrated by communist China because he says funds come from there. That school, he says, is what provides our public health policy.
    Do your own research, if places like Facebook won’t shut you down like it did to me…don’t just take my word for it.

  • Theresa M. says:

    All I know is I listened to my doctor at wellness checks and got my daughter all her “shots”. She now has asthma, animal allergies and severe nut allergies. My friends who didn’t vaccinate their kids have children with zero health issues – no allergies. Maybe it’s a coincidence. Two of my friends mom died within a month of taking the COVID vaccine. Maybe another coincidence? During COVID I started looking into vaccines and analyzing data. Prior to that I always trusted the medical industry. Now it’s clear…..something is very sketchy about vaccines. Right now legacy media uses bully words like “anti-vaxxer”, rather than having an open discussion about data transparency.
    Here is one a recent testimony that Steve Kirsch gave at the UK Parliament thats worth listening too.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    I’ve been censored 3 times. Why?

  • Colorado Conservative says:

    The CDC can take their guide and shove it. Thank God Alaskans are saying NO to the propoganda and nonsense to mRNA jabs (Covid), annual flu shots (worthless), and the new RSV shots (also worthless). I bet the CDC does not tell people the literature that comes with the mRNA Covid shot vials is completely blank, so pharmacists, doctors, or whoever is injecting it has no idea WHAT is in the vial. Yet they still give the shots anyway.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Hey Joel 4times censured.
