With a rush to produce millions of H1N1 vaccines by Pharmaceutical Companies, comes the news of the first recall of the vaccine. Will it be the last?
Canadian doctors have been advised not to use a batch of 170,000 swine flu vaccines after six reports of serious allergic reactions among recipients, but there are no similar reports from other countries, pharmaceuticals company GlaxoSmithKline PLC said Tuesday. via http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/11/24/swine-flu-recall-h1n1-vac_n_368776.html
GlaxoSmithKline has asked that the October batch of H1N1 swine flu Pandemrix be taken out of circulation because it produced serious and immediate anaphylactic reactions in one out of 20,000 vaccinations, compared with one out of 100,000 in other shipments. Most of the vaccine Manitoba received from the suspect lot had already been used by the time the province received the alert. Of the 63,000 doses shipped, only 630 remained unused by the four regional health authorities in Manitoba that received them…Pandemrix contains parts of influenza (flu) viruses that have been inactivated (killed). Pandemrix contains a flu strain called A/California/7/2009 (H1N1) v-like strain (X-179A). Pandemrix contains small amounts of haemagglutinins (proteins from the surface) of a virus called A(H1N1)v that is causing the current pandemic. The virus has first been inactivated so that it does not cause any disease. http://www.dancewithshadows.com/pillscribe/glaxosmithkline-recalls-a-lot-of-h1n1-vaccine-pandemrix-from-canada-due-to-side-effects/
Highlights from The Summary of Product Characteristics or patient information sheet from http://www.emea.europa.eu/humandocs/PDFs/EPAR/pandemrix/emea-combined-h832en.pdf says that Pandemrix contains:
AS03 adjuvant composed of squalene (10.69 milligrams), DL-polysorbate 80 (4.86 milligrams) tocopherol (11.86 milligrams), The vaccine contains 5 micrograms thiomersal. 6.1 List of excipients: Polysorbate 80, Octoxynol 10, Thiomersal, Sodium chloride (NaCl), Disodium hydrogen phosphate, Potassium dihydrogen phosphate, Potassium chloride, Magnesium chloride, Water for injections, Sodium chloride, Disodium hydrogen phosphate.
In clinical studies of efficacy they tested the vaccine in ferrets where all of the ferrets died and exhibited viral shedding. Additionally:
Following influenza vaccination, false-positive serology test results may be obtained by the ELISA method for antibody to human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1), hepatitis C virus and, especially HTLV-1. In such cases, the Western blot method is negative. These transitory false-positive results may be due to IgM production in response to the vaccine.
Translated- the vaccine contains ingredients labeled as toxic, and you might test positive for AIDS and Hepatitis! Further info on Pandemrix is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandemrix. Pandemrix has not been approved in the U.S.A. Pandemrix date of first authorization- MAY 20, 2008, well before the current H1N1 pandemic. Eye chiwawa!
Back up to the flu episode of 1976.
About 200 soldiers in basic training at Fort Dix in New Jersey fell ill and at least four soldiers had pneumonia, and one died and the virus was identified as an H1N1 swine flu virus, “thought to be a direct descendant of the virus that caused the pandemic of 1918,” . “This conclusion was based on antibodies to H1N1 antigens found in survivors of the 1918 pandemic and the belief that the 1918 virus was eventually transmitted to pigs in the Midwest, where it persisted and caused sporadic human cases.”
Not only did the pandemic fail to appear, but the vaccine apparently harmed some people. Health officials suspended the vaccination campaign on Dec 16, 1976, after receiving numerous reports of Guillian-Barre syndrome (GBS), a paralyzing neurologic illness, after vaccination, according to an August 1979 report in the American Journal of Epidemiology. Nationwide surveillance detected 1,098 patients with GBS onset from October 1976 through January 1977. Epidemiologic evidence suggested that many cases were related to vaccination, with an estimated risk of 1 case for every 100,000 vaccinations. http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/panflu/news/apr2209swine.html
In a rush to judgement and fast tracking vaccine approval for not only GlaxoSmithKline PLC, are we seeing a vision of things to come for people who take the H1N1 Swine Flu vaccines?
Japanese health ministry officials will fly to Canada by early December, to study the Canadian authorities decision to hold off on using a batch of its swine flu vaccine Pandemrix, reports said quoting a Japanese newspaper said. Japanese health ministry’s decision comes in the wake of its plan to import GlaxoSmithKline’s flu vaccine Pandemrix to cover 37 million people in the year ending March. However, there’s no change to Japan’s plan to import Glaxo’s flu vaccine Pandemrix. http://www.dancewithshadows.com/pillscribe/japanese-health-officials-to-fly-canada-no-change-in-plan-to-import-h1n1-swine-flu-vaccine-pandemrix/
Will they reconsider? Will you reconsider getting any flu shot even as governments around the world are encouraging you to do so?
