Not a good year to get the flu shot?

From Tim O’Shea, on The Doctor Within:

“For those of you who followed the swine flu vaccine hoax of 2009 very carefully through to its demise this past year, there were some important lessons.

Inconsistency followed indiscretion in the media steamroller that tried to shove this imaginary threat through the skin of the American people in the past 2 years. And will all that is said about the dumbing down of Americans, etc., we still resist being oversold on anything. We were simply oversold on the threat of swine flu and the necessity for the vaccine. And so Americans rejected the H1N1 vaccine, with the exception of a few thousand ignorants who would probably inject Drano if the CDC told them they needed it.

A few of the things that didn’t add up in the public mind: Continue reading

H1N1 vaccine which only last year was recommended for pregnant women is now blamed for many miscarriages

From a recent post on the Socio-Economics History blog:


“I told you not to take the H1N1 vaccine last year! Vaccines are used as a method of depopulation and many vaccines cause sterility. The Illuminati ruling elite has an ongoing depopulation plan. Fact or fiction? You decide. I strongly recommend you avoid all flu vaccines. Try Vitamin D and lots of sunshine instead ! Continue reading

THURSDAY, Oct. 7 (HealthDay News) — Although vaccination against influenza can protect people from illness and help prevent the spread of flu, many Americans say they and their children won’t be getting a shot this coming season, new surveys reveal.

Despite the attention surrounding last year’s outbreak of H1N1 flu, 43 percent of Americans say they will not be getting the vaccine this fall, according to a survey from the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID). Continue reading

Did Toronto’s H1N1 “Poster Boy” really die of H1N1, or was it something else?

Here’s an excerpt from a significant story from the Canadians for Health Freedom blog. Hearing about this boy’s supposed sudden death from H1N1 galvanized public interest in getting the vaccination so it was certainly a succesful PR campaign. But was the story at the core it all true?

Did this boy really die of H1N1 flu?

“Over the past few days, we have received information from one very reliable known source (and three additional informants too frightened to use their names) indicating that the death of Evan Frustaglio was not due to H1N1:  rather, he succumbed to an acute case of meningitis, possibly exacerbated by his playing hockey that weekend. We further were informed that health authorities were absolutely aware that this was the case, yet perpetuated the myth that young Evan died from a virulent case of the H1N1 Flu, assisted by an eager media.

A knee-jerk response to tragedy

The result of the publicity surrounding the 13-year-old athlete’s tragic death was the lining up of thousands upon thousands of people, children in strollers, babes in arms, waiting for hours for vaccination. Many people interviewed in those lineups said that they were there because they were frightened by how quickly the boy died, with doctors unable to save him. Continue reading

Ohio student didn’t want vaccination, restrained by police to get H1N1 shot

Excerpted from a story by Shelley Hanson, from The intelligencer:

This picture is of another boy (not the one in Ohio) who left hospital in a wheelchair nearly a week after developing severe headaches, muscle spasms and weakness in his legs following a swine flu shot. CDC says there was no clear link. I guess that means the boy in Ohio really had nothing to be afraid of, right? Photo by Brendan Smialowski for msnbc.com See excerpt of story at bottom of this post.

“WHEELING – It took the strength of two sheriff’s deputies to keep a middle schooler still enough to receive a shot of the swine flu, or H1N1, vaccine at a recent clinic.

During a regular Wheeling-Ohio County Health Board meeting Tuesday, health department Administrator Howard Gamble told board members about the student’s attempt to flee Wheeling Middle School during a vaccination clinic held there last Friday. Continue reading

BLACKOUT: Military personnel blocked from accessing many H1N1 vaccine sites

This is an excerpt from Allen McDuffee’s report on the Huffington Post blog, titled “Blackout: Military Personnel banned from H1N1 Vaccine Sites“:

Why aren't American soldiers, who face compulsory vaccination, allowed to research vaccine info on the web?

“If you want to draw attention to a problem, try hiding it. That’s the strategy of several military bases when it comes to the H1N1 vaccine.

Shortly after the Pentagon announced that all Armed Services personnel would soon be facing a mandatory H1N1 vaccination program, I started receiving email from soldiers, airmen, marines and sailors because of a previous story I had written on the anthrax vaccine. Mandatory vaccine programs are a sensitive subject in the military, so it’s not a huge surprise that swift and visceral reactions to the program gained speed.

With a vaccine that was so new and little known about it, like many Americans, troops were heading to the web to find answers to their very legitimate questions — not only for themselves, but for their families who have the option of receiving the vaccine on base. What they found instead is that several websites and blogs with key information asking critical questions had been blocked from their viewing. Continue reading

Poland won’t order vaccines unless Pharma companies accept liability

That’s unlike other countries like Canada and the U.S. where governments have absolved companies in advance for any damage claims resulting from untested H1N1 vaccines. Here’s an excerpt from the report on Jane Burgermeister’s “The Flu Case” website. Video below, from Health Ranger Mike Adams, is not directly related to this story, although it is about the flu and the vaccine.

“The Polish Health Minister and family doctor Ewa Kopacz has said she will only sign a contract for the swine flu jabs if pharmaceutical companies agree to accept liability and take responsibility for paying compensation in the even that the vaccines cause damage or death.

“I will sign only when pharamceutical companies take responsibility of the vaccines.I guarantee it,” Kopacz is reported to have said on Polish TV.

The unwillingness of the pharmaceutical companies to accept any liability for their vaccines has fuelled fears that they are well aware of how pontentially damaging these jabs are, especially for children and pregnant women, and have positioned themselves in advance to avoid claims.

Pressing for H1N1 Truth in Toronto

Report on the Toronto vaccination scene from Infowars.com:

“The numbers are considerably down from just 4 days ago and now Canadian officials are ramping up their efforts to get people to take the shot by expanding clinics into the workplace and schools. Another tactic they are using is to claim that there is a shortage. This is a marketing technique which causes people to rush out and line up because of the shortage. You will see similar techniques used by companies like PlayStation and Nintendo. They claim that they can not keep up with the demand and the result is people flock to the stores to make sure that they get theirs before its all gone….” Continue reading

No need to panic over H1N1 flu — Thomas Walkom in the Toronto Star

Here’s an excerpt from a column that appeared last Saturday in the Toronto Star, a mainstream newspaper from Canada’s largest city. While this may seem tame compared to a lot of what we publish here on the flu scene, this is notable for being one of the few voices of common sense being heard among all the decontextualized hype in the mainstream media.

“People die of the flu. This is no consolation to the family of 13-year-old Evan Frustaglio, the Toronto boy who died Monday, apparently after contracting swine flu. But it is true.

This was so before this latest pandemic. It will almost certainly continue to be so in the future. But it is no reason to go off the deep end.

Keep things in perspective. What is worrisome about this particular strain, sometimes known as Novel Swine-origin Influenza A (H1N1), is its newness. We know, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, that is contains genes from pigs, humans and birds. We know from experience that such a mix gives it the potential to pass back and forth between species and to become particularly virulent. Continue reading
