“Flu Inoculations Lead to AIDS Scare” in Military Installment

Jet Injectors = Jet Infectors

1995 Flu Inoculations Lead to AIDS Scare
On December 4, 1995, the Navy Times newspaper ran an article of an AIDS scare during a mass jet injector vaccination campaign amongst military personnel. An HIV-positive service member had mistakenly been allowed to receive a jet injection. Once realization of the gross mishap and the potential threat to all subsequent vaccinees the inoculation line came to a halt.

“They stopped the air-gun inoculations after they realized the infected individual had received his flu shot from one of the autinjection ‘jet guns’, instead of a sterile needle.”

The Navy Times correctly emphasizes “sterile needles,” and thus connotes that “jet guns” are not sterile. Hence, the reason for the ensuing scare.

However, the damage had already been done. Military personnel who received their flu shots immediately following the HIV-positive man, before the line was stopped, were now potentially infected themselves.

The CDC believes there is a risk of HIV transmission via jet injectors. This 1994 CDC report stated in regards to jet injections, “The potential risk of bloodborne-disease transmission would be greater when vaccinating persons at increased risk for bloodborne diseases such as HBV or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection because of behavioral or other risk factors.” [Note: It will be several more years before HCV emerged in medical warnings.]

However the DoD tried to obfuscate the damage that had been done.

“Firing Line: The Navy says the HIV virus can’t be transmitted through use of the autoinjection ‘jet gun,’” stated the Navy Times.

Although if this were true, the line would not have been halted. The actions of the military speak louder than the minimizing statements warding-off backlash and litigation.

This fact remains even more evident by Lt. Cmdr. John Singley’s statement. The spokesman for the Naval Reserve Force said, “The good news is we were doing everything by the book.” Herein is another lie. If everything was being done “by the book” an HIV-positive service member would have received his flu vaccination via a sterile needle and not a jet injector.

The statements of Lt. Cmdr. Singley are nothing more than a failed attempt at whitewashing government negligence within the free-press. However, the press always prevails. Evidence obliterates heresy.

Flu Inoculations Lead to AIDS Scare

WASHINGTON—An AIDS scare ripped through New Orleans on Nov. 17 after an HIV-positive service member was found to have gone undetected through an inoculation line at the Naval Reserve Force headquarters. Navy corpsmen were administering flu shots with air guns and syringes to hundreds of active duty and active reserve members of all five services. But they stopped the air0gun inoculations after they realized the infected individual had received his flue shot from one of the autoinjection “jet guns”, instead of a sterile needle.

“We stopped using (the guns), the doctors reviewed the procedures being followed and interviewed the people using the guns,” Lt. Cmdr. John Singley, spokesman for the Naval Reserve Force. “The good news is we were doing everything by the book.”

There are no documented cases of HIV infection through the use of these guns, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
