The U.S. governments plan to, “just get your damned shot,” is costing taxpayers billions.
As always with pandemic flu’s, taxpayers are footing the $1.5 billion check for the 250 million swine flu vaccines that the government has ordered so far and will be distributing free to doctors, pharmacies and schools. In addition, Congress has set aside more than $10 billion this year to research flu viruses, monitor H1N1’s progress and educate the public about prevention.http://abcnews.go.com/Business/big-business-swine-flu/Story?id=8820642&page=1
The Free Flu Shots that are being distributed cost taxpayers a whopping $600 each! There are about 307 million people in the United States, http://www.census.gov/main/www/popclock.html . Current vaccine distribution leaves roughly 57 million or about 18% of the population in the U.S. without access to the H1N1 Influenza Monovalent Vaccine.
Americans, by and large are skeptics and self-select whether or not to get any kind of vaccine. The evidence that vaccines may do more harm than good has become the topic at the water cooler and here. Children get 55 vaccines, and most of the adult population has had numerous inoculations. You only have to look at your arm as a reminder of the polio vaccine and the scar it left behind.
When it comes to the seasonal and Swine Flu shots, parents would be negligent not to worry about a virus that has caused hospitalization and death of both adults and children. As to whether parents are negligent in giving their child yet another vaccine, time will tell. We hope the last government Swine Flu Vaccination program from 1976 is not a precursor to what we can expect to see in the future. The most current ingredient list for nearly all US Licensed Vaccines including H1N1 can be found here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/07/h1n1-swine-vaccine-package-insert-us-licensed-vaccines/
As it turns out, “more than a third of parents don’t want their kids vaccinated, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll. http://www.healthkey.com/a-z/swine-flu/sns-health-swine-flu-shot-opt-out,0,5198483.story
If parents do not want a seasonal or Swine Flu for their children, most likely they won’t be getting one either. Parents and all taxpayers will pay for those who do get the shot. Could you use a could use the $600 in your pocket? How about a Flu Rebate instead of a Flu Tax? Don’t you just love government run health care so far?
Today, the Senate Finance Committee will vote on its health care reform bill, more commonly known as the Baucus Bill. http://www.docstoc.com/docs/11382446/Baucus-Health-Care-Bill—Full-Text was last penned on September 2009 as The American Healthy Future Act of 2009. Certainly, this has been revised but good luck finding a more recent copy.
The printing presses are busy enough printing money and they are going to get busier. Further eroding the sovereignty of the U.S.A. being an English speaking nation, Section 118 requires that the application be made available in TEN different languages most common among Medicare beneficiaries. http://www.docstoc.com/docs/6989894/Summary-of-the-Baucus-Medicare-Bill-–-S. In pure English, if you can’t acclimate to an English speaking America, you should not be entitled to anything.
How much health care reform is going cost is any one’s guess. If $600 in taxpayer money is being paid for a flu shot, you don’t have to be on pins and needles to know that it won’t be cheap.
