Swine Flu Vaccine Approved by FDA

September 16, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – The FDA has officially approved the new swine flu vaccine in anticipation of mass vaccination that is set to begin next month.

There have been 195 million vaccines ordered for the first wave of vaccinations, 95 million more than the annual average, and for months volunteers have been prepping to assist.

There has been a great deal of misinformation about swine flu, and especially the vaccine, especially with some saying that receiving it will be mandatory. This is not true, nor is it true that everyone in American is being encouraged to get one.

    I guess you missed that it is now manditory for all military personal.

    Darren – It is not mandatory for the general population. The US Military does not fall under that heading, and neither does health personnel, who are also required to take it.

    These are generally considered natural precautions, and from what I know all military personal is usually required to receive annual flu shots when on active duty. That is not the same thing in the slightest.

    H1N1 = Conspiracy?

    October 2009
    On October 1 2009, a former federal health minister dismisses as “crackpots and conspiracy theorists” those who would actively discourage Australians from having their swine flu vaccine’. October 2nd, the San Fransisco Chronicle publishes that ‘Everybody seems to be saying TRUST THE GOVERNMENT but it’s hard to trust the H1N1 vaccination campaign’ and on October 4rd, the Washington Post wonders ‘When the swine flu vaccine finally arrives this week, will Americans line up to get it?’ and CBS News writes about health care workers protesting the flu vaccine mandate. October 6th Foodconsumer publishes ‘Do NOT Let Your Child Get Flu Vaccine — 9 Reasons Why’ and writes that ‘modern medicine has no explanation for autism, despite its continued rise in prevalence. Yet autism is not reported among Amish children who go unvaccinated’. October 7th Healthnews writes that 72 percent are concerned about potential vaccine side effects and the Examiner writes that’ theorists believe that government may force people to take the vaccine’. October 8th Times&Transscript publishes that ‘a mercury-based preservative called thimerosal would be included as one of the substances in the H1N1 vaccine’, Medill Reports writes that Dr. Mayer Eisenstein is advising his patients to say no and is convinced that vaccines cause autism and the Los Angeles Times Blog publishes that media commentators Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh have apparently fallen prey to the loony websites of the anti-vaccine folks and that Beck would do “the exact opposite” of what the government recommended and attend a swine flu party. October 9th, The Christian Science Monitor publishes that ‘the vaccine is opposed, moreover, by naturopaths and even a well-known epidemiologist’ and that Glenn Beck from Fox News has devoted hours to ask ‘why the World Health Organization, “Big Pharma,” and the government are hyping a pandemic’?
