More then 800,000 doses of vaccines have been recalled, but, it is no big deal!
Though the doses allegedly had a potency that was too low, you will not need to have your tots revaccinated. Does that make sense? After all the swine flu fear mongering?
Despite the nature of the recall, children who were vaccinated with the weakened doses should not be revaccinated because the antigen content "is only slightly below the 'specified' range," according to the CDCThis raises some interesting questions-
1. If the level of antigen was satisfactory to do the job, why recall the vaccinations?
2. If the level of antigen was to low to do the job in the recalled vaccines, do vaccines not recalled, have levels of antigen that were to high? Could this be a problem?
3. Is the vaccine manufacturer going to return the tax dollars paid for these useless vaccines?
4. If weakened doses of vaccine will suffice and revaccination is not necessary what does this say about all the fear mongering.
The British Medical Journal has concluded that Tamiflu and other drugs of it's ilk are useless.
A team from the prestigious Cochrane Review says that its analysis of published data about clinical trials of the drug, known generically as oseltamivir, shows that the drug is able to reduce the course of an influenza infection by a day but that they are unable to conclude that the drug is effective at reducing complications and hospitalizations caused by fluApparently Roche is not allowing access to key data? Do read the entire article as it is quite interesting.
80% percent of people who were told they had swine flu, DIDN'T!
But it was good for the Tamiflu makers, one million doses have been given out.
"It has led to allegations that millions of pounds has been wasted"
It wasn't a waste for big pharmaceutical, no indeed, it was all very profitable.
For taxpayers, whose money was foolishly spent, millions has been wasted.
