Inadequate Safety Studies

“A total number fo 103 subjects (mean age 39.4 years) received i.m. injection of an investigational vaccine formulation of A/Vietnam/1203/2004 (H5N1) containing 90 micrograms hemagluttin and no preservative, followed by another injection of the same dose 28 days later. 48 subjects recieved saline placebo” 103 study subjects??? Clearly inadequate. Why did the tested vaccine not contain mercury in the form of Thimerosal, like the one that will be injected into humans on a mass scale?

Severe Adverse Events

“Four serious adverse events (SEA’s), all considered unrelated to the vaccine, occurred after vaccination including one death and three other SAE’s (menorrhagea, cerebrovascular event, and breats cancer)” The “study” fails to mention why these severe reaction might be “considered unrelated.” If you were to gather 103 people and inject a chemical into them, would you expect four serious events, including one death to happen these people.

Adverse Reactions

Pain, tenderness, erythema, endurations, swelling, headache, malaise, myalgia, nausea, fever, gastorintestinal disorders, diarrhea, nasopharyngitis, upper respiratory tract infection, nervous system disorders (headache), pyrexia.” “Neurological disorders temporally associated with influenza vaccines such as encephalopathy, optic neuritis/neuropathy, partial facial paralysis, and brachial plexus neuropathy, have been reported.” “Microscopic polyangitis (vasculitis) has been reported temporaly associated with influenza vaccine.”

Untested Risks

“Animal reproductive studies have not been conducted with Influenza Virus Vaccine, H5N1. It isIt is not known whether known Influenza Virus Vaccine, H5N1can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproductive capacity.” “It is not known whether Influenza Virus Vaccine H5N1 is excreted in human milk. Becasue many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Influenza Virus Vaccine H5N, is administered to a nursing mother.” “Influenza Virus Vaccine H5N1 has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential or for impairment of fertility.” Source: FDA

Marketing Fear: Preparing for Imaginary Epidmics

“While most of the people infected appear to have contracted the virus directly from exposure to ailing birds, public health specialists fear the virus could mutate into a form easily transmissible between humans, potentially triggering a virulent global influenza pandemic…” Staff Africa: Jury Still Out On Vaccines AllAfrica.com 2006-12- 8 Statement like these abound throughout the media. This opens the door for drug companies to make a vaccine for… well, just about any disease an insect, fish, tree or animal can have. The battle cry (marketing campaign) would be “it may spread to humans and cause an epidemic!”

45% Effective???

The Food and Drug Administration documents reports that the two-shot series appears to provide protection to just 45 percent of adults who received the highest dosage of the Sanofi Aventis SA vaccine. And they’re claiming that just 45% produce antibodies, which doesn’t mean that they are protected (or immune) to the avain flu at all.

Mutating Virus Too Elusive

It is widely known that the flu virsues mutate regularly, so you can never be sure if vaccines made months or year prior are even relevent. One expert says: “With flu, you don’t know when you are ahead and when you are behind,” she added. “We have to pick something and get vaccine manufacturers to make it.”

Unkown Immunity

Scientists admit that “What nobody can tell you is what level of anti-bodies you need to prevent infection, severe illness or death.” Staff Africa: Jury Still Out On Vaccines AllAfrica.com 2006-12- 8
