In a stark admission, a 1981 Navy Hospital Corpsman Training Manual recognized the likelihood of contamination when mass jet injector vaccinations are done in haste and procedures are not properly followed.
The manual recalls the infamous assembly line inoculations where jet injectors used within boot camps and training facilities.
“The most common method of mass immunization is through the use of ‘shot lines.’ You will undoubtedly remember this practice from boot camp.”
The manual then blatantly acknowledges,
“When immunizations are administered on a mass scale, the tendency to shortcut recommended procedures increases the likelihood of contamination and improper administration.”
As the evidence of record before and after the publication of this manual has shown, the “shortcut[s]” or rather procedures typically not followed by corpsmen were:
- Failing to hold the gun for three seconds following an injection, as documented within military videos in this article.
- Failing to support the vaccinee’s arm to receive the injection, as documented within these photos.
- Corpsman held a jet gun in each hand, as documented within these photos.
- Corpsman held the jet gun at an incorrect angle, as documented within these photos.
Next let’s look at the word contamination as it relates to mass jet injector immunizations. The use of this word in this 1981 manual can only be associated with blood or serum contamination as evidenced by contemporaneous documents.
- A 1962 vaccine insert by Eli Lilly and Company stated, “If the nozzle becomes contaminated with blood or serum, it should be replaced or resterilized before further use to prevent the transmission of serum hepatitis virus or other infectious agents from one person to another.” (emphasis added)
- A 1985 Army Manual erroneously purports that “Even though the nozzle is not sterilized between recipients, there has been no evidence of serum contamination or transmission of disease.” (emphasis added) Jet Infectors has explained why this statement is incorrect within the following article. Nonetheless, the Army’s manual was referring to serum contamination.
- A 1958 study on jet injection stated, “Although the risk of transmitting the virus of hepatitis is slight, it does exist; and in using this instrument care should be taken to avoid accidental contamination with blood or tissue juices” (emphasis added) (Lipson et al., 1958). This study appropriately acknowledged the risk of transmitting hepatitis but it’s conclusion that the risk is slight no longer holds any validity. At the time, blood detection was very primitive and the clinical test of that period would not have been capable of identifying low, yet infectious levels of blood. Moreover, there was no way to test for Hepatitis C during this period of time.
Department of Defense directives also associated the word contamination with blood and serum.
- A Navy Bureau of Medicine directive, dated November 1, 1995, stated in regards of jet injectors, “injector nozzles, visibly contaminated with blood must be dismantled, changed, and sterilized.” (emphasis added) (DoD, 1995)
- A Navy Bureau of Medicine directive, dated January 3, 1996 and titled “Dental Infection Control Program,” defined contaminated as, “Contaminated. The presence or reasonably expected presence of blood or other potentially infectious material on an item or surface.” (emphasis added) (DoD, 1996)
As the evidence presented above has shown, the military’s high volume immunizations with jet injectors were conducted in haste and the procedures outlined by the manufacturer and the military were not followed. According to this 1981 Navy Corpsman Manual, these “shortcuts,” increased the likelihood of contamination of the injector, and thus, exposed military personnel to cross-contamination of blood and blood-borne pathogens.
