RECALLED

MedImmune announced it is recalling it’s Nasal Spray vaccine, Flu Mist designed to maybe, prevent Swine Flu.  

“Nearly five million doses of an H1N1 swine flu vaccine were recalled today because the strength of the nasal sprays may have decreased over time and they may not be as potent as they are supposed to be, the Food and Drug Administration said. Only about 3,000 of the recalled vaccine doses produced by the MedImmune unit of drug maker AstraZeneca are believed to still be in circulation or storage. The vast majority were administered to patients in October and November, at the peak of the H1N1 vaccination process, according to a Reuters news report.” via http://www.attorneyatlaw.com/2009/12/millions-of-h1n1-vaccine-doses-recalled-due-to-potency-problem/ 

MedImmune has released a pdf with the lot numbers and additional information at http://www.attorneyatlaw.com/2009/12/millions-of-h1n1-vaccine-doses-recalled-due-to-potency-problem/

That’s millions of people who inhaled the live swine flu virus and it probably doesn’t offer any protection at all.  Want to know what else they inhaled and then breathed out on an unsuspecting population? http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM182406.pdf

Each pre-filled refrigerated Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine Live, Intranasal sprayer contains a single 0.2 mL dose. Each 0.2 mL dose contains 106.5-7.5 FFU of the live attenuated influenza virus reassortant of the pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus: A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)v. Each 0.2 mL dose also contains 0.188 mg/dose monosodium glutamate, 2.00 mg/dose hydrolyzed porcine gelatin, 2.42 mg/dose arginine, 13.68 mg/dose sucrose, 2.26 mg/dose dibasic potassium phosphate, 0.96 mg/dose monobasic potassium phosphate, and <0.015 mcg/mL gentamicin sulfate. The vaccine contains no preservatives. 

Also on the patient insert- The following adverse reactions have been identified during postapproval use of FluMist. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to vaccine exposure. Congenital, familial and genetic disorder: Exacerbation of symptoms of mitochondrial encephalomyopathy (Leigh syndrome). Gastrointestinal disorders: Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
Immune system disorders: Hypersensitivity reactions (including anaphylactic reaction, facial edema and urticaria)

Nervous system disorders: Guillain-Barré syndrome, Bell’s Palsy

Respiratory, thoracic and mediastinal disorders: Epistaxis

Skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders: Rash

Last week CDC announced that nearly one million does of H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccines intended for children were being recalled that were manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur, Inc..  http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/vaccination/syringes_qa.htm    

“Despite the recall, the vaccine is safe and effective; parents need not worry about unusual side effects or having their children re-vaccinated,” says Anne Schuchat, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. “There’s no need for parents to call pediatricians. We think the doses given are protective and safe,” she says. http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2009-12-15-swine-flu-vaccine_N.htm       

“We think?,” she said, We think she hasn’t a clue and neither does anyone else about these fast tracked Swine Flu vaccines.  Our take on that recall is at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/12/16/h1n1-swine-flu-vaccine-for-children-recalled/  In November, we wrote about the Canadian Vaccine Recall from GlaxoSmith Kline at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/11/25/h1n1-swine-flu-vaccine-pandemrix-recall/  

Will the third time be the charm that changes people’s mind about getting the Swine Flu Shot or Nasal Spray now that is it generally available to the public? 

Anyone taking bets that this is not the last of the Swine Flu Vaccine recalls?

UPDATED-May 3, 2012.  Scientist Dies at Veteran’s Research Facility in California from rare bacteria.  He contracted a rash before dying! https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/deadlybacteriakills/

Original article begins-

An often unreported symptom of H1N1 Swine Flu and/or the Flu Shot is the appearance of hives and a rash.  Children and adults often get rashes as an immune response to many viruses and the swine flu being a virus, is no exception.

You can rule out other skin disorders at http://familydoctor.org/online/famdocen/home/tools/symptom/545.html

In answering questions regarding rashes and the H1N1, we found…http://www.swineflu.org/forum_posts.asp?TID=25932

“Yes, I have seen a few patients with a rash. They’ve mostly been pediatric patients, not adults. Some were taking antibiotics for possible bacterial co-infections or had high fevers at the time of presentation, so it’s sometimes hard to sort out whether the rash was due to a medication, the blotchy skin that is sometimes seen with high fever, a bacterial infection, or whether it is a direct manifestation of H1N1. From a treatment standpoint, we try to rule out secondary bacterial infections or medication reactions as causative, bring down their fever, and provide supportive care for the flu. The rash has resolved itself without event in each case.

I did a quick literature search. There have been cases of rash reported associated with past influenza epidemics. In particular, this seems to have been a manifestation of the pandemic in the 1890s. Several doctors wrote about a “scarlatiniform” rash they were seeing — a rash that looked to them like what they’d see in scarlet fever but without the other typical signs of that disease (e.g. strawberry tongue, desquamation = skin peels/flakes). Those MD comments note that the rash, if one appeared, occurred within a few hours of the onset of illness, was seen mainly in children under 8 years old, was in proportion to the fever (more fever = more rash), and usually resolved in a day or so. (Bear in mind that these comments were written before viruses were identified and before the role of secondary bacterial infections was ascertained).

Here’s one such account: http://www.bmj.com/cgi/pdf_extract/1/1787/731

A “scarlatiniform” rash is seen in the above image, http://www.lib.uiowa.edu/hardin/MD/derm … fever.html

We also found this on the Swine Flu Rash-

“If it is any help, the night the rash got really bad and her temp was highest I rang nhs direct and the lovely doctor I (eventually) spoke to said that this was likely to be her bodies ‘final battle’ with the virus. he expected her to be better by the morning.  http://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/swine_flu/806681-Rash-with-swine-flu

The overwhelming majority of cases of scarlet fever are caused by group A streptococcus (GABHS). Other bacteria can cause a pharyngitis and similar rash, such as Staphylococcus aureus, Haemophilus influenzae, Arcanobacterium haemolyticum, and Clostridium species. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1053253-overview.

Many people who have died from H1H1 this year were also infected with pneumonia bacteria, warns the CDC.  These co-infections with a common bacteria (Streptococcus pneumoniae, or pneumococcus) likely contributed to their death, according to a report published in the CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.  Pneumonia is an inflammation of one or both lungs, usually caused by infection from a bacterium or virus.  CDC is reminding people of the importance of being vaccinated against this common bacterium and advising them to talk with their doctor. http://seniorjournal.com/Spotlights/FLU2009/20091001-SeniorsNeedPneumonia.htm

There is evidence that like the H1n1 vaccine, the Pneumonia vaccine doesn’t work either. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/10/h1n1-swine-pneumonia-pneumococcal-vaccine-mf59/

In the U.S. PNEUMOVAX ® 23  (PNEUMOCOCCAL VACCINE POLYVALENT) is the approved  prophylaxis against pneumococcal disease. http://www.merck.com/product/usa/pi_circulars/p/pneumovax_23/pneumovax_pi.pdf where there is a complete disclosure of toxic ingredients including phenol.

Could it also mean the the H1N1 is again mutating and becoming stronger?  Just coincidence? Another less reported side effect?  Is the rash caused by a fever, over the counter flu medicines, Tamiflu, etc. Part of a coinfection of bacteria?

Don’t hold your breath on any scientific tying of the symptoms together.  Guess if you or a child has an itch, scratch it.  We’re curious to know if you see a rash if you would mind adding your findings in the comment section:

Age of person with rash?

Fever present?  Temperature?

Consistent flu symptoms?

How soon after fly symptoms did rash occur?

Was there a seasonal flu vaccine?

Was thre an H1N1 or FluMist ® vaccine?

Did patients fever break and symptoms lesson/get worse after the appearance of any rash or hives?

What medicines were administered prior to the rash?

What medicines were administered after the rash?

How long did the rash last?

What worked best for you for overall treatment of the flu?

Anything else you can think of?

We just keep scratching our heads why all the neighborhood kids got the hee bee gee bees, and the flu too.  Thanks for your confidential input.

Updated 11.04.09-  We’ve found out catching Swine Flu twice, is not nice.  One of the kids has Swine Flu for the second time.  Here’s our new post on it via  http://digg.com/d3196x1.  Keep the comments coming  and wishing everyone good health!

The song Breathe from Pink Floyd is appropriate.  This this week begins the distribution of the MedImmune nasal Flu Mist®  and injectable H1N1 Swine Flu vaccines. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that about 3.4 million doses of nasal spray vaccine will be available the first week of October. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/09/18/health/main5320795.shtml The CDC apparently doesn’t lie and distribution and inhalation has begun.

Lyrics start about a minute into the performance… courtesy of http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/Breathe-lyrics-Pink-Floyd/19D5B69FF15F0761482568A10004A481

Breathe, breathe in the air.
Don’t be afraid to care.
Leave, don’t leave me.
Look around and choose your own ground.

Long you live and high you fly
smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry
all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.

Run, rabbit run.
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don’t sit down it’s time to dig another one.

For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave.

An early grave.

Usually referred to as the FluMist®  but officially as the,  Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine Live, Intranasal Manufactured by MedImmune, LLC Intranasal Spray Initial U.S. Approval: 2003

Highlights of prescribing information for patient or package insert   http://digg.com/d316TGx 

Filled with warnings for pregnancy, fertility, nursing mothers, efficacy, side effects, exposing other family members, whether FluMist® works at all and how it will interact with the seasonal flu vaccine.  While the intent to prevent is noble, MedImmune, the CDC, WHO, HHS, and you have no what the outcome will be from inhaling this LIVE VIRUS.  

“Doctors and hospitals are expressing concern that the FluMist vaccine could endanger people because it contains live H1N1 virus, unlike the injectable shot that contains antibodies. With no less than 60 per cent of the U.S. population immunodeficient in one way or another, could FluMist be a pandemic waiting to happen? http://www.prisonplanet.com/doctors-concerned-flumist-vaccine-could-spread-live-h1n1-virus.html

Sanofi Pasteur received a $12 million firm-fixed-price contract. Both Sanofi Pasteur and MedImmune will benefit from HHS funding of about $1 billion for clinical studies that will take place over the next few months and for commercial-scale production of two potential vaccine ingredients for the pre-pandemic influenza stockpile. http://www.marketresearchmedia.com/2009/05/25/dod-contracts-for-flu-vaccine/
