Public on H1N1 Vaccine Safety Issues
The World Health Organization (WHO) restated its confidence
in the H1N1 flu vaccine, calling it the most important tool against
Despite widespread accusations which showed a plethora of contradictions
in WHO pandemic statements and policies, the international
health agency asserted their position with claims that "mild
adverse side effects such as muscle cramps or headache are to

Hartl, asked whether WHO was concerned by reports that some people

"Certainly we have seen the reports. Again, we would restate
that the most important tool that we have to fight this pandemic
