Health Authorities Evasive To Answer
Questions About Flu Vaccination Campaign
Major news sources are making attempts to rescue what appears
to be flagging demand for flu shots in an already unforgettable
The Chicago Tribune published a report saying flu vaccines are
safe and time tested, but in reality, none were tested
on high-risk groups (young children, asthmatics, elderly, smokers,
pregnant women) who the government is targeting for inoculation.
The flu shot is newly formulated every year and there is simply
no way to know for sure it wont result in serious side effects,
like paralyzing Guillain Barré syndrome, which occurred
with the 1976 swine flu vaccine.
Furthermore, public health authorities have been doing a zig-zag
on questions posed by the public regarding this years flu
At first it was said two flu shots would be required to produce
sufficient antibodies against the flu. But then, at the last moment,
vaccine makers said only one shot would be needed. Scientific
reviews of past flu vaccination campaigns show that single vaccination
was at best 3050% effective at generating antibodies. Furthermore,
in many past flu seasons the three strains of the virus in the
trivalent vaccines did not match the flu strain in circulation
in the population. So many people were vaccinated needlessly.
Because it has become apparent single-dose flu vaccination has
not been proven to be effective, the public would think vaccine
makers figured out how to add more potent adjuvants, agents that
boost antibody production, but inexplicably, the flu vaccines
offered this year are said to be free of adjuvants like squalene
that have made the public wary of vaccines.
A couple of years ago the FDA said it was going to remove thimerosal
preservative from vaccines altogether because it was revealed
the amount of mercury in vaccines exceeded EPA guidelines. But
thimerosal once again makes its enigmatic appearance in this years
Newsweek has published a lengthy article dispelling many of the
myths circulating the internet about this years flu outbreak,
such as flu-shot related deaths aboard a US Navy ship docked at
a foreign port, and alleged preparations to force Americans into
quarantine camps. But with these myths dispelled, many others
still linger and the news press is doing a terrible job at getting
For example, with the Centers for Disease Control airing an online
film showcasing their 1000-man army in Atlanta that is working
24-7 to battle this years flu pandemic, it becomes puzzling
why there is such a huge effort to promote flu shots when this
years flu virus is producing far fewer deaths than past
seasonal flu outbreaks.
Another puzzler is why health authorities initially claimed the
pandemic flu emanated from pigs when only this week this flu strain
was isolated from swine herds. It appears humans spread this strain
of the flu to the pigs, not the other way around. Flu experts
believe this is also what happened in 1918 swine developed
symptoms of the flu after the human pandemic started.
But if the so-called swine flu originated in a human, then how
could it have possibly reassorted as explained by health authorities?
Most graphical drawings of the origins of this triple reassortant
pandemic flu show pigs and bird flu strains as antecedents to
the current human pandemic strain.
While health authorities lament over the public malingering to
undergo flu vaccination, delivery of vaccines is late. Why should
the public race to be vaccinated when there simply arent
enough flu shots to go around?
Bloomberg News reports there were only 11.4 million doses available
as of October 14, far short of the 50 million doses anticipated
by this date.
In past flu seasons about a third of the population, around 100
million, received flu shots. The Centers For Disease Control has
established a target of a 7080% vaccination rate. Surveys
show less than half of the American public says they will opt
for the vaccine, which would still be about 50 million more than
past flu seasons. What goes unexplained is why, with only a third
of the public vaccinated in prior years, did no deadly pandemic
Health researchers in Japan and the U.S. caution that over-vaccination
could apply greater genetic pressure and result in a genetic mutant
strain of the flu for which no one would have immunity towards.
The CDC appears to be oblivious to words of caution from within
the ranks of virologists and communicable disease specialists.
Still more bewildering is why the CDC continues to recommend
inoculation against the seasonal flu when the CDCs own website
shows 99% of the flu in circulation is the A-H1N1 pandemic strain.
Seasonal flu shots would be of no value.
The Palm Beach Post reports a flu clinic vaccinating only about
30 people when 3000 were anticipated. Maybe the public is finally
catching on to this annual flu ruse.
