Canadian H1N1 Clinics Closing
Due To Decreased Demand

Canadians are finally wising up to the dangers of vaccinations as clinics around the entire country are closing due to decreased demand.

Health units in Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver are seeing a drop in attendance at the H1N1 clinics and plan to wind down their mass vaccination centers.

"We've seen a drop in the number of people visiting our clinics so we will be looking at the more traditional routes available for vaccinations such as family doctors and walk-in clinics," Dr. Elizabeth Richardson, Hamilton's medical officer of health, said in a statement.

In Stratford, the Perth District Health Unit plans to close its public H1N1 clinics on Dec. 1.

For the second straight day, many of Toronto's H1N1 vaccination clinics are closing early due to a lack of participation by the public.

Despite the downward trend in mass vaccinations, the mainstream media is falsifying information quoting thousands by the day that are still getting their shots at unknown locations throughout the country.

"I'm not really sure what clinic's they're referring to that are so busy," said public health Nurse Cathy Graham. "I've only witnessed a low turn-out except at the beginning of November when the H1N1 clinics were geographically restricted, but since they've expanded very few people are showing up," Graham stated.

Toronto Public Health closed two more of the five Flu Assessment Centres Friday. One closed earlier in the week.

The Ministry of Health has never had an expectation about how long public vaccination clinics should run, said spokesman David Jensen.

"We have full confidence that local public health units, gauging the demand they're experiencing from their communities, will be able to determine the best and most effective way to operate the H1N1 clinics," he said.

Four of Winnipeg's swine flu vaccination clinics are also are being shut down as of Nov. 30.

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) has operated 12 clinics in the city since the mass immunization campaign started on Oct. 26. But the number of people showing up at the clinics has dropped significantly since then.

Decreased demand is also causing H1N1 clinic shutdowns in B.C. and Alberta.

All B.C. H1N1 vaccination clinics were closed over the weekend and may selectively reopen according to B.C. public health.

H1N1 vaccine clinics in Calgary have experienced a massive reduction in public participation for H1N1 vaccinations and most were closing for the weekend.

It was just a month ago that Alberta Health Minister Ron Lieper warned that Alberta would run out of H1N1 flu vaccinations due to increased demand and shortage.

What a difference a month makes.

Recent reports indicated that Health Canada has withdrawn an H1N1 batch from use and are testing it after it produced a range of serious reactions, notably in the heart and lungs. The recall affects 172,000 doses of the Arepanrix vaccine.

Thirty-six Canadians suffered severe allergic reactions after vaccination. 200 others died.
