Tennessee postpones vaccine summit by Brett Kelman Nashville Tennessean
GNN Note – Try to read between the lines. The Tennessean used to be a decent news source for the Middle Tennessee region, but they, like so many news outlets have gotten all woked-up and are little more than the propaganda division of the democrat party. With that said there is a decent explanation of what is happening with the vaccine program in Tennessee – it’s different from the rest of the nation in that Gov. Bill Lee fired the Dept. of Health Secretary because she, allegedly, wanted to vaccinate children in schools without parental consent. Vaccines are a big deal in Tennessee and the direction Gov. Lee is taking the entire vaccine program is worth a look. /END
The Tennessee Department of Health abruptly postponed a virtual vaccine summit intended to provide training to medical professionals across the state as the agency continues to dial back its vaccination outreach despite widespread condemnation.
The Tennessee Immunization Summit was scheduled for August as recently as last Wednesday but was indefinitely postponed as of Monday morning, according to the health department website. No new date was set and all information about the upcoming submit was removed from the site.
The summit was intended to be a repeat of a virtual conference launched last year that featured local and national experts on immunizations and vaccine advocacy. More than 350 medical professionals attended the event, and “the reviews were overwhelmingly positive,” according to a description of the event previously posted on the health department’s website but has since been removed.
Sarah Tanksley, a spokesperson for the health department, said the summit is expected to be rescheduled for the fall. The event was was “paused to ensure all materials, sessions and other supporting information are focused to parents who are the intended audience for any outreach efforts regarding medical decisions for children,” she said.
