When pigs fly…

The pig's outta the bag now!

Indeed.  The big question is: to get shot? or not to get shot?  What about getting nasal misted?  Live virus? Dead virus? Does it matter? Does it WORK? What are the side effects? Are there any side effects? They said there wouldn’t be any unusual side effects in the 1976 Swine Flu vaccine campaign but we know differently after the fact.

There is so much information and misinformation out there about the H1N1 vaccine that it is very difficult to figure out the truth of the matter.

And today, it was announced that lawyers for a group of medical professionals (doctors, nurses, etc.) from the state of New York have filed a law suit in order to halt the mandatory distribution (among healthcare workers) of this vaccine, citing government medical regulators rushed the H1N1 vaccine without adequately testing their safety and efficacy:

From “Lawsuit seeks to halt US swine flu vaccination campaign”

Turner insisted that “the FDA did not do the proper testing to show safety and efficacy of this vaccine, which is under the law a new drug.

“When I say test data, I don’t mean some professor at some medical school somewhere infected some students and said ‘I don’t see any problems.’

“What I mean is carefully conducted double blind placebo controlled studies trials done in accordance with FDA regulations, and a whole series of them to look at dosing… which are then reviewed by FDA scientists.

“None of that has been done on this vaccination and we’re saying the law requires it to be done,” Turner said.

Little Update: Judge Halts Flu Vaccine Mandate For Health Workers

Okay, now, let’s just use a bit of logic here:  we’ve been told by the media and various officials and agencies that this Swine Flu, H1N1, poses a worldwide pandemic threat the likes of which we haven’t seen since the Spanish Flu in 1918.  Hmmmm…this sounds a bit familiar.

History repeats itself.  In 1976, the vaccine was also rushed to the public, without proper testing.  From the November 1976 “60 Minutes” video below:  “there are 300 claims now pending from the families of GBS [Guillain-Barre Syndrome] victims who died, allegedly as a result of the swine flu shot.” GBS is a serious autoimmune disorder affecting the peripheral nervous system, usually triggered by an acute infectious process. There were approximately 500 cases associated with the 1976 H1N1 vaccine.  But, how many lives were saved because of the vaccine?

So…is testing important or not? Should these healthcare professionals be forced to take (what they claim is) an untested vaccine or lose their job? Let’s look at the statement from the FDA about their test results:

”The H1N1 vaccines approved today undergo the same rigorous FDA manufacturing oversight, product quality testing and lot release procedures that apply to seasonal influenza vaccines,” said Jesse Goodman, M.D., FDA acting chief scientist.

Based on preliminary data from adults participating in multiple clinical studies, the 2009 H1N1 vaccines induce a robust immune response in most healthy adults eight to 10 days after a single dose, as occurs with the seasonal influenza vaccine.

Clinical studies under way will provide additional information about the optimal dose in children. The recommendations for dosing will be updated if indicated by findings from those studies. The findings are expected in the near future.”

FDA Approves Vaccines for 2009 H1N1 Influenza Virus.  Just, don’t take it if you’re deathly allergic to chicken eggs. ;)  And try to overlook the fact that as of that report, clinical studies are still ongoing.

“In the ongoing clinical studies, the vaccines have been well tolerated.”

Interesting word, “ongoing”.  Sounds to me like it means they aren’t finished, or conclusive. In fact, as of the release of the FDA approval for H1N1 vaccine, the results of the two most vulnerable groups are still “ongoing”; pregnant women and children.  Are they really saying “we don’t know if they need one shot or two, or if it’ll be effective or what exactly the side effects will really be, but let’s vaccinate them anyway”? Kinda seems like it.

Think carefully before you opt to take this vaccine and don’t discount the other big issue:  the thimerosal preservative in the shot!  But hey, if the level of mercury in the thimerosal (49% mercury by weight) isn’t an issue for you, go for it.  Just remember, just because it’s organic mercury, doesn’t mean it’s safe.

I know it’d feel a whole lot better about all of this if the manufacturers of the H1N1 vaccine hadn’t already been granted legal immunity.

BTW:  Were you further aware that Baxter Healthcare Corp, one of the makers of the H1N1 vaccine, applied for their H1N1 vaccine patent on August 28, 2007. Does it mean anything that they’ve been working on this since at least 2007?  Who knows. they were also working on a lot of the subtypes of swine flu.

    I did not take the flu shot in 1967, the asian flu was rampant all over america and I had a 3 month old baby girl to care for. I became so ill, my family had to come and care for my child. My husband was worthless. I would faint trying to get to the bathroom to puke. I became so weak, they wanted me to go to the hospital. I did not want to go. For about 2 weeks, I suffered horribly. I prayed I would just die. dehydrated, feverish, puking all the time. could keep nothing down. I did not die.

    Ever since then I get the flu shot. why? because every time I don’t and I get the flu, because of my now weakened system I now get phneumonia shot as well, just for a treat.

    I have had my shot this year, with only a very tiny reaction.

    All this discord, yes the h1n1 should be fda approved, yes it should be safe. I agree. However,

    when the small pox vaccine came out … the same freak show. How many kids died because of their parents fears? whooping cough, a huge killer; tetnis, a huge killer; polio, measles,
    pneumonia… none of them casual diseases… all can kill and have killed so many!

    I have to have the h1n1 … I have a compromised immune system and am prome to pneumonia… it can kill me.

    Ongoing arguements? won’t help me if I get the swine flu. Safe? unsafe? what will it matter if I die from the swine flu?? You cannot be a “gambling toad” with the lives of people all over the world, so whether you get the h1n1 or not, it is a life or death choice.

    In 1915, my grandmother witnessed the flu pandemic… how I wish she were here to hear all this chatter. She would very likely say, foolish youth… how you gamble with the lives of others. She told me how many people in her city died horrible deaths from the flu. How everyone would have run to get a flu shot. There was none then, she said it was hell to witness.

    Good luck with your choice. As for me, I will get my h1n1 shot and I will get it again next year. And the year after, and the year after… get the point?

      When the benefits of having the shot outweigh the potential risks, of course, it only makes sense to take the proper precautions.

      People should do their own research on this matter and weigh the benefits vs the risks for themselves.

      However, no one should be forced to take it against their will.

    1. I am sure medical knowledge has come a long way since 1915. That is hardly a good example for me, someone who does not believe in injecting unknown chemicals into my body without knowing exactly what is in it and what it will do. I will need more than “1915” because we are now in “2009”.

    2. Too many times we are told “because the FDA knows what is best for us” when in fact, it is common knowledge that the FDA is just another corrupt form of government bureaucracy that feeds on people’s fears and creates enough of a dependancy on them… that they get a TON of federal dollars which cripples our economic system and effects our jobs.

    3. Blind faith in our corrupt system is not wise in this day and age…. nor is blind faith in ANY corrupt system at any time. How many of those deaths in 1915 and every other “pandemic” are actually caused by the very health experts that claim to be the only answer to save us? Forgive me..but during the 1960’s .. what was the typical diet? These people in power think nothing of using the population as the guinea pig and that has been proven time and time again.

    4. Our bodies are beautifully and wonderfully made. We come equipped with an amazing immune system. Everything has its purpose. When our sinus’s begin to purge… they need to purge out nasty things.. and when we take a pill to stifle this… we stifle our immune system.

    5. God (which I do believe in) has given us many things. I am grateful for eradicating things like Polio.. etc…. However, you should know that a lot of cases of Autism and ADHD as well as many other neurological disorders (and deaths!) are being linked to these vaccines.

    I am sure that people will have their very important reasons for taking this shot.. IE: as stated above, someone who has a fragile health situation…but still… know what you are putting into your body and why.

    Blu, your article above is insightful and very appreciated during a very crazy time. Very thorough. Do you mind if I share it ?
