Flu vaccine questions linger

Ben Nelms's picture

The preparations for flu season are here. Some local schools, with parental sign-offs, are set to begin administering FluMist. The first shipments of vaccine for the “novel H1N1 flu” are coming in for higher risk people, with more on the way for much of the remainder of the population.

All of this has been covered by every news organization in the U.S., including this newspaper. Yet in the minds of many there is more to the story.

So you won’t be confused, the “novel H1N1 flu” is not swine flu. It is a combination of swine, avian and human influenza.

An Oct. 2 Harvard School of Public Health study showed that 60 percent of adults surveyed said they would take the vaccine and 75 percent said they would have their children vaccinated.

Yet a Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center study a week earlier showed nearly the opposite, with 66 percent of those surveyed saying they would not take the vaccine and only 35 percent planning to have their children vaccinated.

Wonder where this apparent contradiction comes from? Harvard is the long-time recipient of loads of dollars from the government/medical/pharmaceutical interlock while Consumer Reports takes no advertising dollars, relying instead on its readers for survey results. I think that answers my question.

Meantime, Dutchess County, N.Y., nurse Suzanne Field last week filed a lawsuit on behalf of nearly 60,000 medical workers covered by an emergency rule put in place in the wake of this year’s H1N1 scare. New York became the first state to require most doctors, nurses and health care aides to get a vaccine for both the seasonal flu and the new H1N1 flu if they want to stay on the job.

Live viruses from vaccines can shed and potentially spread into the community from recipient children for up to 21 days, according to a double-blind study presented at the 41st Annual Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy in 2001. And the same shedding/spreading is true for adults, according to The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal 2003, 22(3):273-274.

Both of these findings call into question close contact of FluMist recipients, and presumably those receiving any live-virus vaccine, with those who are immunocompromised, such as the 8.5 million with cancer (National Cancer Institute, http://srab. cancer.gov/Prevalence/canques.html), the 184,000 organ transplant recipients (United Network for Organ Sharing) and as many as 10 percent of the population with eczema (Atopic Dermatitis: The Epidemiology, Causes and Prevention of Atopic Eczema. New York: Cambridge Univ. Press; 2000:96-112).

As for the H1N1 vaccine, the first 3.4 million doses contain a live version of the novel H1N1 virus causing the pandemic. By the end of the year, CDC anticipates receiving a total of 195 million doses of novel H1N1 vaccine, most of which will contain an inactivated version of the virus, according to the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

As an aside, the pharma companies manufacturing the vaccine include the likes of Sanofi-Aventis SA, Baxter International, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, AVIR Green Hills Biotechnology, etc. These companies will be in heaven, making billions even if we don’t need their vaccine.

All this brings up another point. Respected medical researcher Len Horowitz along with Austrian journalist Jane Burgermeister (you won’t find any reference to these folks in the major U.S. media) have recently filed lengthy affidavits claiming a conscious effort by the U.N., World Health Organization, some international bankers, the U.S. government and some big pharma companies to intentionally corrupt the novel H1N1 vaccine with components that would have killed untold millions of people worldwide.

As outrageous as this sounds, the claims by Burgermeister and Horowitz came after it was verified earlier this year that a shipment of 72 kilograms (158.4 pounds) of vaccine component material sent by a Baxter lab in Austria to a lab in the Czech Republic for inclusion in the H1N1 vaccine contained live H5N1 avian flu virus (H5N1 has a current death rate of 63.5 percent, as opposed to the less than one-half of one percent rate from H1N1).

Fortunately the “mistake” was caught by a Czech lab technician. This potentially catastrophic “mistake” was covered extensively by the European media, but not here. Fox and CNN were virtually silent. Naturally.

So, Baxter potentially contaminates the vaccine, WHO a couple of months later turns around and gives the company manufacturing rights, then issues a Level 6 pandemic that triggers law-enforceable protocols with nearly every nation on the planet (including the U.S.).

In Georgia, according to the implementation of our version of the Model States Emergency Health Powers Act (S.B.385 signed into law in May 2002), you won’t be able to object to the vaccine, even on religious grounds, if the governor declares a pandemic and if local public health officials follow the law. And you can be forcibly quarantined. See Section 290-5-62-0.19-.04(a) of the state procedures and powers at http://health.state.ga.us/programs/emerprep/index.asp

I suggest that you don’t take anything you’ve read here as gospel. The information you’ve just read only took about four hours to find and cross-reference. There’s tons more out there. If this topic is of interest to you or your family then do your own research. Research works.
