Evers’ DHS pushing COVID shot rewards on the mentally ill

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — The Department of Health Services demanded employees push Gov. Tony Evers’ $100 COVID-19 vaccination incentive on the mentally ill and developmentally disabled, according to a DHS source with knowledge of the situation.

“These are patients who are mentally ill, developmentally disabled and some are minors.  Many are not competent to make decisions on medications and many are very paranoid as this is a symptom of their illness,” the DHS employee, who asked not to be identified, wrote in an email. The source included a flier placed around the facility promoting Evers $100 “REWARD” to all those who got their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine by Labor Day.

The employee first contacted conservative talk show host Vicki McKenna with concerns about the health agency’s activities.

A DHS official did not return Empower Wisconsin’s request for comment.

“This seems so wrong on so many levels, first off being a bribe in the form of tax payer money to give people $100 to get the vaccine,” the DHS employee said. “Second, taking advantage of the mentally and developmentally disabled by offering them money, which is enticing to this population to take the shot they are otherwise fearful to take.”

As local and state governments and businesses issue or contemplate COVID-19 vaccine mandates, questions and concerns are growing about the line between public safety and civil liberties. Compulsory vaccinations aren’t merely a threat.

As the Gotham Gazette reports:

The New York State Office of Mental Health quietly issued guidance in April allowing psychiatric centers to vaccinate patients for COVID-19 over patient objections and without a court order in an unusual break from treatment protocols.

The policy makes psychiatric patients in state custody one of the only adult populations in New York subject to forcible vaccination.

The guidance, issued April 22, is a “clarification” giving hospital staff discretion to administer the vaccine without consent, an intrusive action clinical staff and lawyers working with patients say is unnecessary and alarming. It came more than four months after people living in state-run inpatient facilities became eligible for the vaccine and despite uptake being roughly equivalent to the statewide adult vaccination rate.

James Plastiras of the New York State Office of Mental Health tells Empower Wisconsin OMH has not vaccinated anyone over objection.

“The guidance you’re referring to was revised with the attached in June, clarifying that the policy does not apply to patients who object to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. It further states that OMH facilities should not administer the COVID-19 vaccine over a patient’s objection and should not seek administrative or court authorization for treatment over objection for COVID-19 vaccinations,” the mental health professional wrote in an email.

There are currently no orders or recommendations on compulsory vaccinations of mental health patients in Wisconsin, according Mary Kay Battaglia, executive director of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Wisconsin.

“There are a couple of hospitals requesting employees get vaccinated but not patients to have the vaccination,” she said

5 thoughts on “Evers’ DHS pushing COVID shot rewards on the mentally ill

  • This reeks of eugenics… “In the early 20th century across the country, medical superintendents, legislators, and social reformers affiliated with an emerging eugenics movement joined forces to put sterilization laws on the books. Such legislation was motivated by crude theories of human heredity that posited the wholesale inheritance of traits associated with a panoply of feared conditions such as criminality, feeblemindedness, and sexual deviance. Many sterilization advocates viewed reproductive surgery as a necessary public health intervention that would protect society from deleterious genes and the social and economic costs of managing ‘degenerate stock’.”

    Eugenics was a commonly accepted means of protecting society from the offspring (and therefore equally suspect) of those individuals deemed inferior or dangerous – the poor, the disabled, the mentally ill, criminals, and people of color. (Alex Stern – Eugenic Nation: Faults and Frontiers of Better Breeding in America,)

  • Warren Anderson, M. D. says: “I don’t like this approach, but we must get people vaccinated.”

    1) It isn’t a ‘vaccination’, and;
    2) The end justifies the means?;
    3) What ‘dance’ do these clowns want us to do next?

  • These so called vaccines MUST stop. They are really EXPERIMENTAL gene therapy. Nothing has been approved. What the FDA approved was NOT the Pfizer shot. The FDA did a BAIT and SWITCH to make the public think it was the same. It was to unload their stock of the experimental vials they have left-over. The pharmaceuticals are making billions of money off of the injuries and deaths of the people. This is not reported. The fact is, the so called vaccines, should have been pulled even before the 50th death! There are ingredients that should NEVER be injected into anyone’s body. This is NOT about health. The truth MUST come out. We are killing the people.
    Pfizer’s, Comirnaty vaccine was the one approved. However, it is NOT even in existence, and won’t be available until March, 2023, if then. We don’t know if it exists or even tested. Maybe, in name only? The government, is purposely tricking the public into giving up their right to refuse an experimental product. According to OSHA, employers who mandate or even give without, informed consent, may be held liable for adverse reactions or death for an experimental vaccine, even, Governor Evers. So he should stop bribing and mandating ANYONE! There have been 600,00 covid injuries and over 45,000 deaths, not even reported, to deceive the public. We are being played or duped, big time. I have information to back up everything and papers to share. I have been in many seminars and forums on this subject of covid. There are 100’s of thousands’ of doctors, world wide, who have researched and documented the facts. They are the real doctors. You want to follow the censored doctors because they are the ones who know the truth! A REAL pandemic lasts for only 3 to 4 months, We are self-perpetuating this, by the wearing of masks, and the injections. The sick are now those have covid out-break from their shots. They are the ones who are ill and dying. The un-vaxxed, who are ill, have co-morbidities. Our own immune system can combat this virus if we keep it healthy. A 99.99% recovery rate. The truth is out there. It is being withheld. Numbers are manipulated and rules changed by the CDC. You are welcome to contact me.
