Swine Flu Vaccine: Liberals, please sign up.

August 19, 2009

Swine Flu is NOT the Problem — It is the Vaccine that May Harm or Kill You

By Dr. Mercola

You’ve probably noticed the escalating hype and hysteria surrounding the swine flu pandemic as colder months approach and the number of worldwide cases climbs.

It’s true the virus is spreading.

Much more important, however, is the fact that reported cases continue to be symptomatically mild, requiring little or no medical intervention. And deaths from the H1N1 virus remain extremely low, at less than one half of one percent of reported cases as of July 6.

Despite this fact, the United States has committed to spending another $1 billion on ingredients for an H1N1 vaccine, according to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, with plans for a mid-October vaccination program intact.

Plans are also underway to implement vaccine programs around the world. In Germany, for instance, the health ministry announced the government had plans to order 50 million vaccine units and up to 22.5 million people may be vaccinated in the first stage of the plan starting in September (even though no fatalities have occurred in the country to date).

The cost of the vaccination program is estimated at two billion euros — even though only 800 infections, none of them fatal, have been reported in the country.

The White House Speaks About Swine Flu

If you’re on the White House email distribution list, you received an email recently announcing the “H1N1 Influenza Preparedness Summit” held on July 9. The note was signed by the Secretaries of Health and Human Services (HHS), Homeland Security, and Education.

The message said[PDF], in part:

“We are working together to monitor the spread of 2009-H1N1 and to prepare to initiate a voluntary fall vaccination program against the 2009-H1N1 flu virus, assuming we have a safe vaccine and do not see changes in the virus that would render the vaccine ineffective.”

Two things in this paragraph stand out. Number one — the vaccination program is still voluntary. A plan for mass swine flu vaccinations is not good news, but it appears that at least for now, the choice is still up to you.

The other item which stands out in that paragraph is the phrase, “… assuming we have a safe vaccine.”

How safe is a vaccine that has been developed, “tested,” and shipped for mass distribution in a matter of weeks? The answer — it isn’t.

Unfortunately, President Obama is fully onboard with the prospect of mass injections of inadequately tested, potentially deadly vaccines.

“We want to make sure that we are not promoting panic, but we are promoting vigilance and preparation,” he said during the July 9 summit, adding, “the most important thing for us to do is to make sure that state and local officials prepare now to implement a vaccination program in the fall.”

Target Groups are Among the Most Vulnerable to Vaccine Risks

Yesterday’s Washington Post ran a story in which 2800 people will be tested for the vaccine in 8 US cities. Even more concerning though is that they are expecting 160 million doses of the vaccine to be ready this fall with the first batch sometime this September.

As I mentioned in an earlier article, school children are the first target group to receive vaccinations. According to the Washington Post, Education Secretary, Arne Duncan said during the summit that “we would absolutely welcome” the idea that the nation’s schools be turned into vaccine shot clinics. He called them “natural sites” and said that “to open our doors and be part of the solution really makes sense.”

Makes sense to whom? I can’t say this enough — if you understand the truth about vaccines it is beyond outrageous to suggest children should be the first to line up for swine flu vaccine injections.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the most serious and fatal cases of H1N1 have occurred in people between the ages of 30 and 50, many of whom were already ill with disorders like asthma, heart problems, diabetes, autoimmune diseases and obesity.

Cases of swine flu in healthy children have been mild in nature, with little or no medical intervention required. Informed parents, given a choice, will surely opt for a mild case of the flu over the potential health risks of an inadequately tested vaccine that can potentially cause long-term devastation of your child’s health, or worse.

Further, under federal legislation passed by Congress since 2001, an Emergency Use Authorization allows any company that gives experimental vaccines to Americans during a declared public health emergency to be protected from liability if people get hurt.

It is a bad idea to turn schools into medical clinics and test experimental swine flu vaccines on children first. Especially when nobody has any liability.

The Secretary of HHS, Kathleen Sebelius, rounded out the first targeted injection group by also including healthcare workers, pregnant women, and adults with chronic illnesses.

Pregnant women and people of any age with compromised immune systems are potentially at much higher risk for complications from dangerous vaccines than they are from a mild influenza virus.

On Their Way — Vaccines Containing the Deadly Adjuvant Squalene

I recently posted an article on the subject of the vaccine adjuvant squalene. If you haven’t read this article, I suggest you do so. It contains crucial information about the health risks associated with injections of vaccines containing squalene.

Adjuvants are added to vaccines to make them more “effective” and to reduce the amount of vaccine required per dose. They do this by causing your immune system to react in a powerful, unnatural and potentially dangerous way to the presence of the organism you’re being vaccinated against.

Squalene is proving to be among the worst of the worst in terms of immune adjuvants.

We know at least two of the swine flu vaccines under development by drug companies will contain the oil-based adjuvant squalene. Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline are producing those vaccines, and it’s probably just the tip of the iceberg because:

In a July 13 WHO swine flu pandemic briefing note in which they list their latest recommendations on vaccines, they state:

“In view of the anticipated limited vaccine availability at global level and the potential need to protect against “drifted” strains of virus, SAGE recommended that promoting production and use of vaccines such as those that are formulated with oil-in-water adjuvants and live attenuated influenza vaccines was important.”

Translation: WHO is now specifically recommending the production and use of vaccines containing oil-based adjuvants.

Also on July 13, HHS Secretary Sebelius committed another $884 million — in addition to the $1 billion committed in May — to purchase two key ingredients of the H1N1 vaccines under development. The key ingredients are:

1. The antigen (the active ingredient or organism)
2. The adjuvant

Novartis, whose vaccine contains the squalene adjuvant MF59, will receive $690 million of the $884 million.

The handwriting is on the wall — H1N1 vaccines will almost certainly contain the squalene adjuvant. Sebelius hedges her bets with the following statement:

“Depending on the results of clinical studies, adjuvant could be added to a vaccine to boost the immune system’s response and potentially reduce the amount of antigen necessary for the body to recognize and fight a virus.”

Depending on the results of clinical studies? Are those the same studies that will somehow be completed in record time and inexplicably deliver results pronouncing swine flu vaccines “safe and effective?”

Your skepticism is warranted and may keep you and your family safe.

Again — please read my recent article on squalene so you will be fully informed of the deadly potential of this vaccine adjuvant and the controversy surrounding its use.

The U.K. is Also Keen to Mass Vaccinate

The U.S. government isn’t alone in its irrational response to the H1N1 virus.

How’s this for a headline: “Swine flu vaccine to be cleared after five-day trial.

Dr. Peter Holden, the British Medical Association’s lead negotiator on swine flu, is of the opinion that although swine flu is not causing serious illness in patients, U.K. health officials are eager to start a mass vaccination campaign, beginning with “priority groups.” Holden says the vaccinations will reduce the chances of a shortage of hospital beds because of people suffering from swine flu.

Why is the U.K. eager to vaccinate for a virus that isn’t causing serious illness? And why, if the swine flu isn’t causing serious illness, is Dr. Holden concerned about a shortage of hospital beds?

    I don’t ever get a regular flu shot…let alone this thing they’re trying to force upon us. I’m with you on signing up some liberals to check it out first.

      We can start with BHussein himself… and work our way through congress. Then their ignorant supporters & moronic Obamatrons.

      Then, we can reclaim our country.

    I am an Indian. How We will get swine flu vaccine in our country

    • August 27, 2009 2:31 pm

      I don’t know. I imagine it’s something your government would handle – or your medical facilities. However, I don’t recommend anyone take it since it’s already made a lot of people even more sick than “swine flu” has.

    This is I think a UN plan to inject themselves into every nation’s health business. When you control the world’s health, you control a huge portion of the world, don’t you?

    • August 31, 2009 3:17 pm

      Of course. That’s the only reason they’re so bent on destroying our Health Care system. Control.

    Another misleading article to make you all feel good. This article failed to mention that the adjuvant squalene is not approved in the USA. Those doses made with this adjuvant are being prepared for use overseas, we have our own versions being prepared. They also use old information on the manufacturing processes used in the ’70s that created the problem associated with the vaccines in 1976. We now use a cell culture which eliminates the allergic reactions to that were prevalent with the chicken egg cultures used back then. Poll- 26 percent of Americans are considered ignorant, 26 percent of Americans believe Bush did a great job while in office. Coincidence?

      Oh riiiiiiiight. Articles about “vaccines” killing people make me feel just dandy! Hell – if you think I’m happy NOW, just wait ’til your beloved leader, BHussein gets ahold of our medical system!! People will be dying left and right! Oh, my cold, black, right wing heart will most likely burst with joy.

      You want to talk polls? Want to explain BHussein’s downward spiral? Want to explain the rapid loss of support for his “socialized medicine” plan? I’d also like to know where you get these numbers. Oh, and the crack of your ass is not a reliable source, kiddo.

      Now go get your shot. Nobody wants to hear your whining.

    The nice thing about right wing fear mongerers spreading disinformation that is readily believed by ignorant people who are too lazy to check facts for themselves is that there are plenty more people who can see thru the lies and have changed their political beliefs because they are tired of being misled. Keep up the good work, we depend on you to ensure we never have another administration like Bush’s running this country.

    • September 6, 2009 10:12 am

      Why don’t you go sign up for the Swine Flu shot then, kiddo? Also!

      The nice thing about liberal fools is that they’ll believe anything the government spews at them – and eat it up readily! I Hear is a veeeerrrrrry reliable source for you liberals and other Obamatrons to hear what you want to hear. Truth or not. Either way, thanks for the hits to my site! Oh, and I LOOOOOVE your English skills. You’re in what… ninth grade? Tenth maybe? LULZ. Also, and don’t worry. At the rate BHussein is going – there won’t be an America left for another “administration like Bush’s running” our country.

      Why are you Obamatrons so hung up on Bush? He’s in the past now – and everything that’s fucked up with our economy and the war in Afghanistan and the troops BHussein didn’t pull out as promised can all be pinned on him. So man up and take responsibility for what is yours. So, what brought you to anyway? What prompted you to leave comment after comment? Aww someone likes me!
