Glaxo Smith Kline have recalled a batch of Swine Flu vaccines containing around 170,000 vaccines in Canada, due to a larger than expected number of adverse reactions. GSK say that they expect to have reports of a severe adverse reaction in a approx 1 in every 100,000 persons receiving the vaccine, however, with this particular batch they were seeing about 1 in every 20,000 after six people suffered anaphylactic shock after having the vaccine.
CTV National News: John Vennavally-Rao reports that more than 100,000 doses of the H1N1 vaccine were withdrawn on Thursday after a number of people who received the vaccine suffered a potentially life threatening allergic reaction which has raised some concerns. Glaxo Smith Kline say however, that this is just a precautionary measure.
However, elsewhere around the world, reports flood in of severe adverse reactions and deaths linked to the Swine Flu Vaccine.
The Local (Swedish News in English) reports of four cases where people have died after receiving the Swine flu vaccine.
The Jerusalem Post reports the death of a 75 year old, who died two days after receiving the Swine Flu vaccine
Bild.com reports on the agonising death of a toddler after the Swine Flu vaccine.
MSNBC News reports that a 14 year old boy has been struck down with GBS after Swine Flu Vaccine
Prison Planet reports that several women are speaking out after they have miscarried after the Swine Flu vaccine
BreakingNews.ie reports two deaths in China after Swine Flu vaccine
Belfast Telegraph reports boy rushed into hospital after Swine Flu Vaccine
Take up for this apparently safe vaccine is falling dramatically with newspapers such as the Dayton Business Journal reporting that one survey carried out saw around 50% of the public decide against having the vaccine. The results of a Zogby International interactive survey reported that 46% of adults who were considered to be high risk by CDC, planned to ignore the recommendation for vaccination, many fearing it’s safety.
Reports elsewhere show similar responses, leaving many Governments and the Pharmaceutical industry seemingly red faced, after buying enough vaccines to vaccinate almost the entire population and few public willing to take up their offer.
It has been reported that some Governments have decided to opt out of the scheme to vaccinate against Swine Flu altogether, deciding that putting the safety of their people first is more important than vaccinating them with a vaccine they say has potential hazards.
The Polish Government have refused to buy the vaccine until it has been fully tested. Boston Herald reports on the 6th November 2009 – that the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said that his government wonÂ´t buy vaccines for swine flu that have not been properly tested or from producers who he says wonÂ´t take responsibility for possible side effects.
Pretty damning words coming from a man of power. The Boston Herald reported that the Polish Minister had said to reporters:-
“that vaccine producers were pressuring governments to buy, but were also demanding that all responsibility and compensation for possible negative side effects fall upon government shoulders.”
The Canadian Press reported that Prime Minister Tusk had said:-
“Today we are dealing with great pressure from pharmaceutical firms … we are dealing with expectations that hundreds of millions of zlotys (dollars) will be spent on vaccine while no one wants to guarantee that it has no side effects,”
He stressed that the few dozen swine cases in Poland have been mild and no deaths have been reported.
With all this confusing information, the public are left in a quandary as to whether to have a vaccine that despite assurances from the CDC, the FDA and the JCVI is safe, reports from elsewhere,seem to be telling a different story.After all the Swine Flu does not appear to be killing off as many people as we were first led to believe.
Natural News say that the CDC has reported that nearly 4,000 Americans have been killed by Swine Flu. That would be pretty impressive number until you read the report that they compared it to, stating that the number of people killed each year by Aspirin is more than four times this number.
