Israel Medical Association Chief: Doctors in Hospitals Not Required to Get Flu Shot



Israel Medical Association Chief: Doctors in Hospitals Not Required to Get Flu Shot
by Deborah Danan 21 Jan 2018
TEL AVIV – Unlike their U.S. counterparts, Israeli doctors are not required to be vaccinated against influenza and in cases where they do receive the flu shot, are forbidden from displaying a pin advertising that fact to patients, the Jerusalem Post reported on Wednesday. 

While in the U.S. most hospitals demand that all personnel who come in direct contact with patients receive the vaccination before the flu season begins, the Israel Medical Association only recommends the measure to its 25,000 members, the report said. It added that any outward indication – such as a pin or tag – that doctors were voluntarily vaccinated was not allowed.

IMA chairman Prof. Leonid Eidelman, who is chief of anesthesiology at the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva, explained the reasons behind the policy, saying that if medical practitioners “voluntarily wear a pin showing they were vaccinated, it doesn’t give a good impression about those who don’t.”

“There is a slippery slope; doctors could be forced to wear pins saying they have HIV or hepatitis C. It would never end,” he told the Post.

“It’s a personal decision for everyone, and doctors should not be dictated to,” he added. Eidelman further declined to answer whether he himself had been vaccinated because “this is a political question.”

Meanwhile, in Manhattan’s NYU Langone Medical Center, all employees – not just doctors and nurses – must get the flu shot. “We are given a sticker to wear on our ID tag. Theoretically, if for some reason you don’t get the shot, you need to wear a protective surgical mask through the entire flu season,” a senior doctor told the Post.

Only 19% of Israel’s population has been vaccinated against influenza, despite the shot being free.

According to the Ministry of Health’s epidemiology department, 27 people of all ages died of complications resulting from the flu in the last few months – double that of last year, the report said.

However, according to Eidelman, there are “no studies showing that patients are infected with the flu by their doctors” or the reverse.

Los Angeles Times CEO Is 55th Member of Elitist Media Accused of Sexual Misconduct



Los Angeles Times CEO Is 55th Member of Elitist Media Accused of Sexual Misconduct
by John Nolte 19 Jan 2018
Los Angeles Times publisher and CEO Ross Levinsohn is currently under investigation for two sexual harassment settlements and other alleged acts of inappropriate behavior, according to NPR.

NPR reports that Levinsohn, who is both the CEO and publisher of the far-left Los Angeles Times, “was sued in separate sexual harassment lawsuits as an executive at two different corporations” and admitted to rating the “hotness” of female employees and speculating as to whether or not they moonlighted as strippers.

Two people, according to NPR, claim “they were shocked to see Levinsohn [who was married] aggressively kissing and pressing himself against a woman at a glitzy music industry dinner in plain view of his subordinates and his clients.”

Levinsohn is also accused of not wanting to be “surrounded by gays” at a luncheon. Apparently he used an epithet to describe homosexuals.

Tronc, the company that owns the L.A. Times, said it is investigating the allegations but has not suspended Levinsohn.

The sexual harassment allegations reach all the way back to 2001.

Levinsohn is the 55th member of the elitist media accused of sexual misconduct.
