Not really, Canada has purchased lots of this vaccine. Canada alone is spending more then 400 MILLION dollars on vaccines.
Thereby ensuring maximum profitability for the pharmaceutical corporations and guaranteeing big bonus's for their CEO's. Because they really don't make that much money. But, I digress.
I know that H1N1 is a "pandemic"! I hear it constantly in the main stream media.
But the stats for Canada tell us a different story.
The pandemic has so far killed 83 people in Canada and hospitalized more than 1,500.
The recession/depression has hit Canada a hell of a lot worse then the swine flu. I wonder if the money could have been better spent elsewhere? Because I am thinking there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people that are out of work in Canada and food bank useage is soaring.....But, I digress again!
It's a pandemic! 83 people have died!
Then I wondered how many people die from seasonal flu? I couldn't find a number for Canada, however the CDC claims that 36,000 Americans die yearly from the flu.
Since Canada's population is about 1/10th that of the US, I used 1/10 of the US figure to estimate that about 3,600 people die every year from seasonal flu in Canada
But, 83 have died from H1N1 and it is a pandemic, but seasonal flu isn't?
Health Canada has pronounced the swine flu vaccine has been declared safe, though safety trials are ongoing, and results won't be known until next year!,
Wait just a minute...?? Read for yourself.
"I am happy to say that today, Health Canada has authorized the H1N1 flu virus vaccine,"
"Canadian clinical trials of the vaccine are still underway, and the results won't be available until next year"
So, how is it declared safe?
"Federal health authorities have relied on data from clinical trials done on the same vaccine in Europe"
What clinical trials? Who conducted the trials? Did the clinical trials include the use of experimental adjuvants? The ones contained in Canada's H1N1 vaccine?
Because Health Canada says it is the same vaccine, but is it?
"The adjuvant used in Canada's swine flu vaccine, AS03, has also been tested in about 45,000 people around the world using a "mock" H5N1 vaccine."That doesn't seem to be the exact same vaccine? Maybe the adjuvant is the same, but H5N1 and H1N1 are not the same viruses? Same adjuvant, but a different virus. Can this bring about different safety results?
Confusing, isn't it ?
It is also interesting to note some other H1N1 news that is getting much hype.
"Some researchers predicting that pandemic H1N1 influenza infections are peaking this week"
If that is the case, the mass vaccinations are unnecessary.
But, they are available now in Canada!
