    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Flu/h1n1 Vaccine Postcard

Recommended Posts

I just got this card in the mail from the VA. Here's the propaganda:

Dear {name}:

Your health records show that you meet the CDC criteria for priority H1N1 vaccination. This means that you have one or more conditions that make you more likely to have serious problems if you contract the H1N1 "swine" flu. We strongly recommend that you receive the H1N1 flue vaccine and the seasonal influenza shot as soon as possible.

Since the H1N1 "swine" flu vaccine is in very limited supply at our facility, we are encouraging everyone to take advantage of clinics in oyur local area such as your county health department clinics and other local clinics.

Don't delay - Get your Flu shots today!

It also contained contact information for my local VAMC. I called the number and listend to a recording telling people about the flu and to contact their primary care clinic to get more information. I called my primary care clinic. They ran out of injections (not nasal) on Friday and do not know when they will get more.

One year when they had a big flu shot shortage my PCP Doc ordered a flu shot for me as I am in the so called high risk profile. Well it seems that some of the nurses in the clinics were hoarding flu vaccine for their buddies or to sell on black market or who knows and the nurse kept fooling around and not giving me a flu shot. As I finsished checking out my PCP whirls by like a Texas Tornado with me in tow and asks did you give this man a flu shot. Me being me blurted out that she told me there was no flu vaccine. The Doc looked at her and said you can start looking for another job if this man does not get a flu shot today. Guess what she opened her little drawer and found some flu vaccine

It's official! No H1N1 for me at this time. My girlfriend (who works at a hospital) said not to get it. Also, I read the topic here and found out about the squaline in the injections and the high levels of mercury. Sounds pretty scary to me.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
