UPDATE 3-US probing seizures reported after Sanofi flu shotThu Jan 20, 2011 2:55pm EST
WASHINGTON, Jan 20 (Reuters) - U.S. health officials are investigating a rise in reports of a type of seizure following vaccination with a Sanofi-Aventis SA (SASY.PA) (SNY.N) flu vaccine, the Food and Drug Administration said on Thursday.
The febrile seizures, or seizures related to a fever, have primarily been reported in children younger than 2, the FDA said in a statement on its website.
The FDA said 42 cases of febrile seizures had been reported as of Dec. 13 and it and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were investigating if they could have been caused by the vaccine, called Fluzone, or if other factors were involved, the FDA said.
An FDA spokeswoman said 36 of the cases reported to its vaccine adverse event reporting system were in babies and toddlers aged 6 months to 2 years, with 10 serious cases. She said 38 of the febrile seizures occurred within a day of getting Fluzone.

Feds Probe Post-Flu Shot Seizures Among KidsJan. 21, 2011
AP) ATLANTA - Government officials are investigating an apparent increase in fever-related seizures in young children after they got a flu shot.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Thursday said there have been 36 confirmed reports of seizures this flu season in children ages 6 months through 2 years. The seizures occurred within one day after they were vaccinated with Fluzone, the only flu shot recommended in the United States for infants and very young children. Ten of the children were hospitalized, but all recovered.
... FDA officials said they've been paying special attention to seizure reports because of an unexplained higher rate of fevers and seizures in young children in Australia and New Zealand who got a specific flu vaccine earlier this year.
In August, a U.S. vaccines advisory panel said doctors should avoid using that vaccine, made by CSL Biotherapies, in children ages 6 months through 8 years.

Seasonal flu vaccine fairy tale rapidly collapsing as the truth comes outJanuary 18, 2011
(NaturalNews) Like a medical house of cards in an earthquake, the seasonal flu vaccine mythology is collapsing right before our eyes. After months of urging everyone to get vaccinated (and blaming non-vaccinated people for skipping out on their "public health obligation"), UK health authorities announced last week that "healthy people" were to blame for causing a vaccine shortage that they claim now threatens the lives of sick children. As part of this ruse, they even suggested that pharmacies should be banned from selling flu vaccines to healthy people, explaining that healthy people didn't really need them anyway.

Swine flu pandemic outbreak sweeping through Britain even though 70 percent were vaccinated last year12-27-2010
(NaturalNews) A swine flu pandemic is sweeping through Britain despite the fact that 70 percent of Britain’s over-65 population was vaccinated against swine flu last year. This year, that number is nearly the same — 68.5% — but flu vaccine proponents insist that until everyone is vaccinated, the flu will continue to infect people.
What these vaccine advocates absolutely will not admit, however, is how many of those who are sick with the flu this year also got vaccinated last year. This little detail is left out of every mainstream media report on vaccines and the flu. They simply refuse to mention this all-important number, leaving readers to leap to the incorrect conclusion that only those who were not vaccinated get sick with the flu.

CHILD FLU VACCINE CONTAINS MERCURY
UP to a million under-fives have been inoculated against the flu virus with a controversial vaccine containing poisonous mercury.
Pandemrix has been given to almost a quarter of all healthy babies and young children as well as thousands of older children with health problems.
Inquiries by the Sunday Express reveal it contains a preservative made with a form of mercury that was phased out of childhood vaccines in 2004 after fears about its safety.

Pediatric Hospitalizations Due to Influenza in 2010 in ArgentinaN Engl J Med 2010; 363:2472-2473December 16, 2010
During 2009, Argentina had the third largest number of deaths due to pandemic influenza in the Americas.2 As reported in the Journal, 1 our retrospective case series consisted of 251 hospitalizations and 13 deaths between May 1 and July 31, 2009, in a catchment population of 1.2 million children. The hospitalization and death rates of 20.9 and 1.1 per 100,000 children, respectively, exceeded rates due to seasonal influenza viruses in previous years by a factor of 2 and a factor of 10, respectively.

Fears for new swine flu outbreak as 10 dead in six weeksMon 13th Dec 2010 8:36pm
Swine flu has hit Britain again with 10 people dying in the past six weeks. Several others are seriously ill in hospital and officials fear the virus is spreading.
Of the 10 who died – all adults under 65 – most had underlying health problems.

Bad batch proves shots not safeFall 2010
Let’s stop pretending: There’s no way in hog heaven these swine flu vaccines are safe.
Need more proof? Look north – at least one Canadian is dead and dozens of others are recovering from severe allergic reactions to the vaccine.
Many of those cases were linked to GlaxoSmithKline’s Arepanrix swine flu vaccine, which prompted a recall of 172,000 doses. But by the time word got out, all but 15,000 had been used.
If you already rolled up your sleeve in Canada – too bad. Just be glad you’re still alive to read about it.
Plenty of victims have suffered from anaphylaxis, a potentially deadly reaction that includes breathing problems, low blood pressure and swelling of the throat, tongue, lips and eyes.
Arepanrix appears to be especially bad — even by the low standards of poorly tested swine flu vaccines.
GlaxoSmithKline’s own data shows that more that 1 in 10 patients experience pain, headache, fatigue, swelling, shivering, sweating, aching muscles and joint pain. And 1 in 10 will develop diarrhea, swollen lymph nodes, fever, feeling sick, bruising and itching.

More people skipping flu shot this yearNovember 01, 2010
(NaturalNews) Americans seem to be wising up about the flu shot scam, according to a new study in Consumer Reports indicating that fewer people than last year are planning to, or have already gotten, the flu shot this year. Thirty-one percent of respondents indicated they are unsure if they will get this year's three-in-one combo vaccine because of concerns about its safety and effectiveness, while 30 percent said they definitely will not be getting the shot.
Statistics Canada recently released a report indicating that 60 percent of Canadians and 80 percent of Americans refused the H1N1 vaccine last year, even though media and government campaigns pushed people for months to get it (http://www.naturalnews.com/029919_H...). And this year, despite endless prodding, most people are still opposed to getting any sort of flu shot.

(NaturalNews) The vaccine industry has now decided that injecting senior citizens with the "standard" vaccine dose just isn't working. (Gee, really?) So now they've decided the way to make it work better is to offer a quadruple viral potency vaccine that packs 400% more viral fragments into one toxic shot.
The target for this quadruple vaccine injection? Senior citizens, of course -- the very people most likely to suffer the most serious side effects from a vaccine overdose. The FDA reportedly approved the new vaccine in April even though no scientific tests have ever been done to show it reduces flu symptoms. Then again, since when did vaccines have anything to do with real science in the first place?

What is In the Flu Vaccine that Can Cause Infertility?Posted By Dr. Mercola | October 15 2010
GlaxoSmithKline's Fluarix swine flu vaccine, among others, contains Polysorbate 80, also known as Tween 80.
A study done in Slovakia on female rats found that when newborn rats were injected with the substance within a week of birth, they developed damage to the vagina and uterine lining, hormonal changes, ovarian deformities and infertility.
The package insert for Fluarix mentions that the manufacturer cannot guarantee your fertility will be unharmed. Further, if your fertility is compromised, recently passed laws protecting vaccine makers will prevent you from holding GlaxoSmithKline responsible.

Latest Flu Shot Linked to SeizuresWilliam Campbell Douglass II, MD - August 22, 2010
Check the calendar, flu-shot season is here — and if you thought last year’s vaccine was bad, wait ’til you get a load of this one. They haven’t even started jabbing shoulders in earnest yet, and we’re already getting terrifying warnings from the feds — because one of the new vaccines has been linked to seizures in children.
Australia, just coming out of its flu season, had to suspend flu shots for kids — because little ones were suffering febrile seizures at 10 times the normal rate.
It’s bad enough that there’s a “normal rate” of seizures associated with flu shots. The fact that it’s now 10 times higher is just plain outrageous.
Ever see a febrile seizure? It’s one of the most frightening things a parent or grandparent could ever witness. The child’s temperature flies through the roof, causing the child to pass out, shake, stop breathing, and even turn blue.

In an exceptionally strong and well executed report, written on the Child Health Safety Website entitled 'Flu Vaccine Caused 3,587 US Miscarriages from H1N1 Vaccine,' they say :-
"The corrected estimate for the total number of 2009-A-H1N1-flu-shot-associated miscarriages and stillbirths during the 2009/10-flu season is 1,588 (95% goodness-of-fit confidence interval, 946 to 3587). That is, the lower and upper range-probability of miscarriage and stillbirths due to the H1N1 vaccine was as low as 946 and as high as 3,587.

U.S. bans CSL influenza vaccineAugust 19, 2010
Following febrile fits and deaths in children, the United States and Europe have banned an influenza vaccine for use in children produced by CSL, Ltd..
European health officials and the Australian Health Department recommend only using the vaccine, called Afluria, on children over the age of five. The U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices says children under nine should not be exposed to the vaccine, according to the Business Spectator.
CSL halted its H1N1 vaccine distribution in Australia following government concerns. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported that 23 children in Perth were affected with fever and convulsions following injection.
He said that since this year's vaccine program started a month ago, 23 children under the age of 10 had presented to Princess Margaret Hospital with convulsions related to vaccinations they had received less than 12 hours before.
Another 40 convulsion cases had been detected in the past month in children at other metropolitan hospitals and in Bunbury. Doctors are now working to determine how many of those children received the flu vaccine.
Aside from the convulsions, affected children were suffering fever and vomiting within 12 hours of their flu shots.

Flu vaccination ban goes national after fever, convulsions in childrenApril 23, 2010
Seasonal flu vaccinations across Australia for children under five have been suspended after 23 children in Western Australia were admitted to hospital with convulsions following their injections.
One child, aged 1, remains in a coma in a Perth hospital.
More than 60 children around the state may have had adverse reactions to the vaccine, including fevers, vomiting and febrile convulsions - a type of fit brought on by a high fever.
One child remains in a critical condition in hospital after being given the vaccine. Dr Weeramanthri said he had few details on the child's condition but they were "seriously ill".

Swine flu advisers' ties to drug firms: Five WHO experts linked with vaccine producers13th August 2010
A third of the experts advising the World Health Organisation about the swine flu pandemic had ties to drugs firms, it has emerged.
Five of the 15 specialists who sat on the emergency committee had received funding from pharmaceutical giants, or were linked to them through their research.
The revelation will prompt speculation that the 'pandemic' was wildly overestimated and largely fuelled by the drugs industry who stood to benefit from the panic.

AP IMPACT: Millions of Vaccine Doses to Be BurnedATLANTA July 1, 2010 (AP)
About a quarter of the swine flu vaccine produced for the U.S. public has expired — meaning that a whopping 40 million doses worth about $260 million are being written off as trash.
"It's a lot, by historical standards," said Jerry Weir, who oversees vaccine research and review for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The outdated vaccine, some of which expired Wednesday, will be incinerated. The amount, as much as four times the usual leftover seasonal flu vaccine, likely sets a record. And that's not even all of it.
About 30 million more doses will expire later and may go unused, according to one government estimate. If all that vaccine expires, more than 43 percent of the supply for the U.S. public will have gone to waste.

What’s in your H1N1 flu vaccine?
Chris Shaw wasn’t always skeptical about vaccines. The neuroscientist at the University of British Columbia had his teenage son vaccinated with most of the recommended shots. But then he started studying some of the ingredients commonly found in vaccines.
What he discovered caused him to go cold turkey on all shots for his six-year-old daughter. And that includes the vaccine for the H1N1 flu.
“I am not convinced H1N1 is sufficiently hazardous to most people to risk the potential downside of the vaccine,” Shaw said over the phone from his office in the research pavilion at the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority.
Shaw isn’t an easily dismissed vaccine conspiracy theorist. He is a leading expert on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease) and Parkinson’s disease. While investigating unusually high rates of ALS and other neurological disorders among veterans who have Gulf War syndrome, he found evidence that the cause may have been aluminum salt, an ingredient in the cocktail of vaccines given to soldiers before deployment.
Although aluminum salt isn’t present in the H1N1 vaccine, Shaw’s discovery made him concerned about other vaccines, including the swine-flu shot. He isn’t alone in his thoughts.

The CDC Votes in Favor of a Flu Vaccination Assault on Americans’ HealthJuly 1, 2010
Richard Gale & Gary Null
The recent unanimous 11-0 vote by the members of the Centers for Disease Control’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) favoring every American over the age of six months receive the flu influenza vaccine is one more attempt by our federal health officials to open up our bodies to the free market capitalism of pharmaceutical coffers. It is another step to mandate a vaccine across the nation, a policy that has many supporters in the pro-vaccine science community.
The vote raises an alarm about our federal government’s scientific integrity, and calls into question its true allegiance and purpose: to protect the health of American citizens or increase Big Pharma profits. If the recommendation were ever enforced, the US would be the only nation in the world with mandatory flu vaccination. ...
To put this into greater perspective, since the FDA relies on industry-funded clinical trials and subsequent data to approve vaccines and drugs, there also appeared in the news this month a critical finding from the German Institute for Quality and Efficacy in Health Care, published in the peer-reviewed journal Trials. The study investigated 90 approved drugs in the US (and let us make no mistake, vaccines are drugs! In fact, the flu vaccine is listed as a Category C drug; which means there are no adequate safety studies to determine whether flu vaccination adversely affects pregnant mothers and their fetuses.) and discovered that 60 percent of the 900 papers were unpublished and some were concealed from the federal regulatory agencies. Forty to sixty percent omitted clinical details or changed their final analysis. Among the pharmaceutical industry studies alone, 94 percent were unpublished, and 86 percent of the university studies sponsored by drug makers remained unpublished. ...
Canada’s Vaccination Risk Awareness Network (VRAN) website is a community of physicians, researchers and vaccine researchers and journalists reporting on vaccines’ flawed promises and pseudo-science. Among all vaccines, the flu vaccine is presented with “The Most Useless Vaccine Of-All-Time Award.”

With Flu Season Over, Canada Shows Flu Vaccinations To Be Worse Than WorthlessMay 17, 2010
Last September, a large study by Canadian scientists Danuta Skowronski and Gaston De Serres threw Canada into an uproar with their findings showing people who had prior "seasonal flu" shots were much more likely to come down with newly appeared H1N1 (Swine) flu illness.
When the dust had settled every Provincial Health Department but one, New Brunswick, declared seasonal flu shots would not be given until perhaps January of the new year, with only the new H1N1 vaccine immediately rushed into service. As it turned out by January first new flu cases had sunk to essentially zero so the seasonal flu shot became a moot point, having little appeal.
All this was front page in newspapers across Canada, yet was completely ignored by the U.S. Health establishment and news media, illustrating the usual policy by officials at the the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to keep the American public in the dark. In other words just follow orders from CDC Generals, don't ask questions, and in the immortal words of NBC's Dr. Nancy Snyderman on national TV, "just take your damn flu shot."

Mass H1N1 immunisation 'inappropriate'6 April 2010
The mass vaccination program for swine flu has come under fire from an infectious disease expert who says the risk of serious side effects was greater than any potential benefit for half the Australian population.
Writing in the latest issue of Australian Prescriber, Professor Peter Collignon, director of the Infectious Diseases Unit and Microbiology Department at The Canberra Hospital, said the Government's response to the virus was "inappropriate", fuelled by fears about its spread that were out of proportion to the real threat posed by the disease.
"Overall, swine flu has been associated with fewer deaths than seasonal influenza and is of low virulence," he wrote.

MORE than 60 WA [Western Australia] children may have had adverse reactions to the flu vaccine, the state's health department says, with one in critical condition.
WA Health Minister Kim Hames announced on Thursday that vaccinations for children under the age of five would be halted after a number of reactions to the three-strain vaccine, which includes swine flu.
Australia's chief medical officer Jim Bishop on Friday said health professionals nationwide should immediately stop immunising children under five with the vaccine, as a precaution.
WA Health Department chief health officer Dr Tarun Weeramanthri said a higher-than-expected number of reactions to the vaccine, which is offered free by the state government to children under five, had been reported.
The Princess Margaret children's hospital (PMH) had reported 44 children under 10 had presented with febrile convulsions, of which 23 related to the paediatric flu vaccine.

Peter Doshi on Swine Flu and the WHO12 April 2010
To the Editor:
Since the H1N1 outbreak, the World Health Organization (WHO) appears to be distancing itself from the idea that it ever promoted the concept of an influenza pandemic as an inevitably disastrous event. Last May, the WHO Director-General declared that highly pathogenic avian influenza "H5N1 has conditioned the public to equate an influenza pandemic with very severe disease and high mortality. Such a disease pattern is by no means inevitable during a pandemic. On the contrary, it is exceptional." 
I disagree. It is public health organizations--not viruses--that have shaped the public's understanding of pandemic influenza.
In the BMJ last September, I documented how the WHO altered its longstanding definition of "influenza pandemic" a few weeks after the emergence of H1N1 . The Organization deleted the phrase "enormous numbers of deaths and illness" from the definition. By the new definition, pandemics need not be severe.

We blundered over swine flu, admit health chiefs13th April 2010
Global health chiefs have finally admitted that they may have overreacted to the swine flu 'pandemic' - landing governments with millions of unused vaccines.
The World Health Organisation has conceded that it may have been guilty of failing to communicate 'uncertainties' about how virulent the new virus was.
Critics say the UN agency was too quick to designate the influenza a pandemic in June after it spread from Mexico.
Keiji Fukuda, its top influenza expert, yesterday admitted a six-phase system for declaring this was confusing and the bug was not actually as deadly as bird flu.

WHO Appoints H1N1 Cover-Up CommitteeApril 13, 2010
Reports that the WHO is appointing an ‘independent’ committee to investigate its own conduct in the H1N1 panic of 2009 has been tempered by the fact that one of the committee’s members, John Mackenzie, was in fact one of the advisors who urged the WHO to declare a pandemic in the first place. He also has ties to vaccine manufacturers, making him part of the very charge being investigated: that the WHO relied on advisors with a financial interest in declaring a pandemic regardless of the facts on the ground.
