Novartis has begun shipments of  Fluvirin, the seasonal influenza vaccine in the United States for the 2012-2013 influenza season.

Vaccine yes_no

What are the Fluvirin Flu Vaccine Ingredients? Here is the package insert so you can view the cocktail list for yourself. http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/ucm123694.pdf

FLUVIRIN® is a trivalent, sub-unit (purified surface antigen) influenza virus vaccine prepared from virus propagated in the allantoic cavity of embryonated hens’ eggs inoculated with a specific type of influenza virus suspension containing neomycin and polymyxin.” (aka antibiotics)

It is designed for protection of the following viruses:

A/Christchurch/16/2010, NIB-74 (H1N1) (an A/California/7/2009-like virus)

 A/Victoria/361/2011, IVR-165 (H3N2)

 B/ Hubei-Wujiagang/158/2009, NYMC BX-39 (a B/Wisconsin/1/2010-like virus).

It contains some trace of thimerosal, a mercury derivative.

“Each dose from the multidose vial or from the prefilled syringe may also contain residual amounts of egg proteins.,,”  Chick Embryonic Fluid is a foreign animal proteins and genetic information injected into the human body.  We’re not scientists but as we understand it, you are getting chicken DNA- is that better than the flu?

While humans are not ideal hosts for H5N1, bird flu viruses do sometimes manage to adapt for easy transmission from human to human, and the results can be devastating. In 1918, one such transformation led to the Spanish flu pandemic, a global outbreak that claimed an estimated 50 million people.

To better understand the possibility of H5N1 making a similar transformation, two teams of scientists recently manipulated the virus until it could spread through the air from one ferret to another. If a flu virus can infect a ferret, then it could theoretically infect other mammals, including humans. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/26/science/the-evolution-of-bird-flu-and-the-race-to-keep-up.html?pagewanted=all

Getting back to the eggs.

Avian influenza (AI)–the bird flu–is a virus that infects wild birds (such as ducks, gulls, and shorebirds) and domestic poultry (such as chickens, turkeys, ducks, and geese). There is a flu for birds just as there is for humans and, as with people, some forms of the flu are worse than others.

From the FDA-http://www.fda.gov/Food/ResourcesForYou/Consumers/ucm085550.htm

“AI is primarily spread by direct contact between healthy birds and infected birds, and through indirect contact with contaminated equipment and materials. The virus is excreted through the feces of infected birds and through secretions from the nose, mouth and eyes.

Contact with infected fecal material is the most common of bird-to-bird transmission. Wild ducks often introduce LPAI into domestic flocks raised on range or in open flight pens through fecal contamination. Within a poultry house, transfer of an HPAI virus between birds also can occur via airborne secretions. The spread of avian influenza between poultry premises almost always follows the movement of contaminated people and equipment.

AI also can be found on the outer surfaces of egg shells and in the case of HPAI, can infect the inside of the egg which includes the yolk and albumen or the egg white. Transfer to eggs is a potential means of AI transmission. Airborne transmission of virus from farm to farm is highly unlikely under usual circumstances.

HPAI can be spread from birds to people as a result of extensive direct contact with infected birds. Broad concerns about public health relate to the potential for the HPAI virus, such as the HPAI H5N1, to mutate, or change into a form that could spread easily from person to person. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is aggressively working to ensure public health is protected.”

CLUCK. CLUCK.

To address the variability in the egg supply, Sanofi Pasteur restructured its flock management so that embryonated eggs would be available to support vaccine production at full capacity throughout the year. Because embryonated eggs are themselves potentially susceptible to avian influenza, flocks associated with vaccine production are under strict contract and must be completely housed, monitored by veterinarians, and raised under biosecurity regulations. With government support, Sanofi Pasteur has also established contingency flocks as a backup against avian influenza and other risks. http://www.nae.edu/Publications/Bridge/EngineeringandVaccineProductionforanInfluenzaPandemic/Egg-BasedProductionofInfluenzaVaccine30YearsofCommercialExperience.aspx

1918 mass graves from Spanish Flu

1918 mass graves from Spanish Flu

Baxter Pharmaceutical files for patent on H1N1 Vaccine two years before first Swine Flu, H1N1 case is reported.

Swine Flu H1N1 cases are supposedly increasing so fast that the WHO, World Health Organization is no longer keeping a record of the number of cases. 

The U.N. agency, which declared an H1N1 influenza pandemic on June 11, said last week it was the fastest-moving pandemic ever and now pointless to count every case.  It told countries to stop reporting individual cases and concentrate on mitigation measures and detecting any unusual patterns of disease or spike in rates of absenteeism.” http://www.reuters.com/article/marketsNews/idUSLL47029320090721

While most cases appear to be mild, governments around the world are still pushing vaccine manufacturers to develop a preventative vaccine for an H1N1 virus that his killed all of 700 people.  By comparison to the avian ,” Spanish flu” of 1918, which killed perhaps 50 million people worldwide, including more than 500,000 in the United States. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Flu/story?id=1173856

From A Virus of Our Own Hatching, http://birdflubook.com/a.php?id=5 :

In 1918, “They brought out their dead. Corpses were carted away in anything, wheelbarrows—even garbage trucks. Often, though, the bodies were just pushed into corners and left to rot for days. People too sick to move were discovered lying next to corpses. All over the country, farms and factories shut down and schools and churches closed. Homeless children wandered the streets, their parents vanished. The New York Health Commissioner estimated that in New York City alone, 21,000 children lost both parents to the pandemic.  Around the world, millions were left widowed and orphaned.” 

By the grace of God, better sanitation, better access to health care or whatever, this is not happening in 2009.  The cause of 1918’s influenza was not found until years later, when a British research team finally isolated and identified the viral culprit, recreated in in the lab and then posted the genetic markers on the internet for some smart terrorist to possible recreate.

Bloomberg  says, “Companies working on swine flu vaccines include Sanofi- Aventis SA, based in Paris, GlaxoSmithKline Plc and AstraZeneca Plc, both based in London, CSL Ltd. of Melbourne and Novartis AG, based in Basel, Switzerland.  And of course, Baxter International Inc. , based in Deerfield, Illinois, has contracts with five countries for 80 million doses and has stopped taking new orders that it may not be able to fill….The swine flu pandemic will be a boon to the company this year and mutations in H1N1 and other strains may create a lasting new business for the company, he said. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601202&sid=asQokqEhf.fg  No shit, “a boon to the company?”

Baxter’s stock is performing well even though ,”Baxter sent vaccines contaminated with deadly live H5N1 avian flu virus to 18 countries before someone caught the mistake and the vaccine got injected thousands of people.   Baxter just missed creating its own pandemic then by mixing  deadly H5N1 virus with a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses, or did they?  By possibly creating the pandemic, maybe Baxter already has the cure and that is why WHO has deemed them the appropriate pharmaceutical company to lead the way for a swine flu vaccine.  Keep in mind- Just 50 miles from the H1N1 ground zero outbreak in Mexico City, lies Baxter’s manufacturing plant in Cuernavaca, Mexico. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/05/05/baxter-pharmaceutical-plant-in-mexico-ground-zero-for-flu-outbreak/  Another accidental release, as in 900o vials of God knows what is missing from Fort Detrick? http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/17/AR2009061703271.html

As in the case of AIDS- “The Kenyan lady minister, winner of the Nobel peace prize 2004, was quoted as having expressed the conviction that the AIDS virus was not a natural phenomenon but happened to be man-made. She went on to imply that the spreading of the AIDS virus over vast areas of the African continent, too, was a deliberate act (accident/conspiracy?) http://pakobserver.net/200907/23/Articles01.asp 

As possible proof H1N1 was created in the lab, Baxter seems to have the upper hand in Pandemic game of life in death filing patents for vaccines prior to the known existence of mutated viruses as  Bloomberg is reporting, “Baxter has received pre-approval for its vaccine production method, and additional tests of the vaccine in humans will be necessary.”

Baxter is nothing, if not prepared for the swine flu outbreak if the wording in this 2008 US patent application is anything to go by from http://www.theoneclickgroup.co.uk/news.php?start=2760&end=2780&view=yes&id=3581#newspost :

See Baxter Vaccine Patent Application US 2009/0060950 A1 FILED AUGUST 28, 2007

“In particular preferred embodiments the composition or
vaccine comprises more than one antigen…..such as
influenza A and influenza B in particular selected from of one
or more of the human H1N1, H2N2, H3N2, H5N1, H7N7, H1N2,
H9N2, H7N2, H7N3, H10N7 subtypes, of the pig flu H1N1,
H1N2, H3N1 and H3N2 subtypes, of the dog or horse flu H7N7,
H3N8 subtypes or of the avian H5N1, H7N2, H1N7, H7N3,
H13N6, H5N9, H11N6, H3N8, H9N2, H5N2, H4N8, H10N7, H2N2,
H8N4, H14N5, H6N5, H12N5 subtypes.”

“Suitable adjuvants can be selected from mineral gels,
aluminium hydroxide, surface active substances, lysolecithin,
pluronic polyols, polyanions or oil emulsions such as water in
oil or oil in water, or a combination thereof. Of course the
selection of the adjuvant depends on the intended use.
E.g. toxicity may depend on the destined subject organism
and can vary from no toxicity to high toxicity.”

“Three different influenza strains, two A-strains Hiroshima
(HR, H3N2), a New Calcdonia (NC, H1N1) and a B-strain,
Malaysia (MA), were produced in Vero cell cultures. After
virus propagation the infectious virus harvest is inactivated
prior to purification….”

Read that last paragraph again-

BAXTER produced H1N1 cell cultures nearly two years before the pandemic! 

 Today 7/23/09, “the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee will hear about the status of H1N1 vaccine production, as well as the FDA’s plans for evaluating vaccines in time for the fall flu season, when public health officials expect to see resurgent H1N1 infections.” http://www.medpagetoday.com/ProductAlert/DevicesandVaccines/15170.  The meeting will be held at Hilton Hotel Washington DC North/Gaithersburg,  620 Perry Parkway, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20877 – http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/Calendar/ucm170908.htm,  as  one of our finest taxpayer funded government office buildings wouldn’t due for such a meeting!  CIDRAP- The Center for Infectious Disease Research usually posts follow ups here  http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/swineflu/index.html 

Want to bet Baxter will be one of the presenters?

U.S. health officials are considering a fall immunization campaign that could involve an unprecedented 600 million doses of vaccine for the currently circulating H1N1 swine flu vaccine.http://www.forbes.com/feeds/hscout/2009/07/21/hscout629120.html

And, just like Baxter predicted human testing, “The University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Center for Vaccine Development will be one of 10 centers in the nation to test a swine flu vaccine on adults and children.  The clinical trial, slated to begin next month, will enroll up to 1,000 adults and children to evaluate whether the vaccine is safe and effective in preventing the virus known as H1N1, which public health officials fear could mutate into a deadlier strain this fall.http://www.baltimoresun.com/health/bal-swinefluvaccine-0722,0,755431.story  Other city medical Iowa City, Iowa; St. Louis; Nashville; Seattle; Atlanta; Cincinnati and Houston reportshttp://www.nationalterroralert.com/updates/2009/07/22/u-s-looks-for-volunteers-for-swine-flu-vaccine-test/ .

Not to be outdone- “Nurse Luiza Duszynski flicks her syringe, squeezes a few drops of clear liquid from the needle and pushes it into Tara Seaton’s arm. With that, she became one of the world’s first recipients of a vaccine for swine flu. Seaton is among the 240 healthy adult volunteers in Australia who CSL Ltd. began injecting today with its experimental vaccine against H1N1, the new virus strain that sparked the first influenza pandemic in 41 years”.- http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601124&sid=aadm7_AYSmKo

Don’t forget, “Vaccine makers and federal officials will be immune from lawsuits that result from any new swine flu vaccine, under a document signed by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.”http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hjdCHrP82YTFser5vD6CzTK1az6wD99GH8580

Updated flu reports and posts at  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/ah1n1-swine-flu-report/

Eye-chiwawa, a  strain of flu never seen before has killed up to 60 people in Mexico and 8 in the United States.   Reuters reports that the CDC analysis showed the disease is a mixture of swine, human and avian viruses.  Mexico’s health minister, José Ángel Córdova, said the virus had mutated from pigs and had at some point been transmitted to humans.  At least, he’s pretty sure.

A Mixture?  H5N1 does not’t easily infect people, H3N2 viruses do. If someone exposed to a mixture of the two had been simultaneously infected with both strains, he or she could have served as an incubator for a hazardous mixed virus able to transmit easily to and among people.   That mixing process, called reassortment, is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created and it looks like Mexico City is ground zero for it’s spread. 

In February 2009, American pharmaceutical company Baxter made a mistake of catastrophic proportions.  Baxter manufactured and sent The Austrian firm, Avir Green Hills bird flu vaccines that were found to contain a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses and unlabeled H5N1-otherwise known as the human form of Avian Flu. 

Avian Flu is one of the most deadly biological weapons on earth with a 60% kill rate.  Avir Green Hills sent the vaccines on to labs in the Czech Republic, Germany, and Slovenia.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/03/11/vaccine-drug-deadly-costs-mistakes-threaten-pandemic/   The contamination was realized in the Czech Republic where they inoculated ferrets with the product and they died unexpectedly from exposure to human H3N2 flu viruses.  Imagine if they had inoculated infants or an entire population rather than ferrets?  Imagine if a terrorist got a hold of this? 

Bloomberg News is reporting The World Health Organization in Geneva will declare the outbreak “a public health event of international concern” noting that it may raise the level of pandemic alert, which could lead to travel restrictions aimed at curbing the disease’s spread. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601085&sid=atHtXtCigRII&refer=europe 

WHO has the world presently in phase 3: a new influenza virus subtype is causing disease in humans, but is not yet spreading efficiently and sustainable among humans.  “In my mind, what we’re talking about is moving from a pandemic alert 3 to a pandemic alert probably 5,” said Michael Gardam, director of infectious diseases prevention and control at the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion. Level 5 indicates a new strain with significant human-to-human transmission. Level 6 is a pandemic. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20090425.ILLNESS25ART2116/TPStory/National

Whatever threat level is assigned, and whomever raises the alert could result in border closures, travel and trade restrictions.  Mexico City is already in lockdown mode with schools, museums and libraries closed and soccer games being played to empty seats.  How far the lockdown goes is anyones guess.  I wonder what FEMA Zones may be impacted?  Craig Fugate, President Obama’s nominee to head FEMA, sailed through his confirmation hearing last week before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Welcome to your new job, dude.  

WHO estimates between 250,000 and 500,000 deaths annually from the seasonal flu strains H3N2, H1N1 and type B.  Experted from the NYTimes- Seasonal flus cause most of their deaths among infants, elderly people and the infirmed, but “pandemic flus — like the 1918 Spanish flu, and the 1957 and 1968 pandemics — often strike young, healthy people the hardest.  The leading theory on why so many young, healthy people die in pandemics is the “cytokine storm,” in which vigorous immune systems pour out antibodies to attack the new virus. That can inflame lung cells until they leak fluid, which can overwhelm the lungs. Despite the alarm in recent years over the H5N1 avian flu, which is still circulating in China, Indonesia, Egypt and elsewhere, some flu experts argued that it would never cause a pandemic, because no H5 strain ever had. All previous pandemics have been caused by H1s, H2s or H3s.  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/25/world/americas/25mexico.html?_r=1&ref=world

There are no estimates for this most recent outbreak and there is no cure, only treatment and prevention. 

Currently there are four different antiviral drugs that are licensed for use in the US for the treatment of influenza: amantadine, rimantadine, oseltamivir and zanamivir. None of these antiviral medications exist in large quantities! http://www.globalsecurity.org/security/ops/hsc-scen-3_flu-pandemic-medicine.htm.

The CDC is running its own investigation here http://www.cdc.gov/swineflu/investigation.htm, most creatively saying wash your hands and that there is no vaccine available at this time.  Eye-chiwawa, indeed.

Vaccine photo props http://www.helpyourautisticchildblog.com/category/thimerosal/ and eye-chiwawa at http://pinkertonfx.deviantart.com/art/Eye-chiwawa-69317736

Correction- Damn it anyway, I hate it when I am wrong but glad that there weren’t 8 people who died in the US- rather 8 were identified as sick with the virus.

The multi billion merger pending from pharmaceutical companies Merck with a $41.1 billion purchase of Schering-Plough Corp. probably won’t be the last big drug-industry merger.  The amount of money is staggering and the lack of regulation apparent.

The deal, which comes on the heels of Pfizer Inc.’s $68 billion bid for Wyeth in January and Roche Holding AG’s $45.7 billion offer for U.S. partner Genentech Inc. last week, will spur other drug makers fearful of falling behind into action…Sanofi-Aventis SA may next target Bristol-Myers Squibb Co., which sells the French company’s Plavix blood-thinner and the Avapro hypertension treatment in the U.S. Alternatively, Bristol- Myers may be a potential merger partner for U.K. diabetes drug partner AstraZeneca Plc.  Johnson & Johnson may make a counter bid for Schering-Plough.  http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=a.JuaqqzcDMY&refer=home

There is money to be made and lives to be saved, but human drug testing in the highest expense to bringing new drugs to market.  Many trade their bodies for the cash drug trial offers. More than 800 drug tests are taking place in India alone.  The FDA has only checked into 8 of them according to a special report http://www.tampabay.com/specials/2008/reports/india/ .

For every 5000 drugs tested in the lab, only 5 will make it to clinical trials and only 1 will pass and make it to the shelves.  It is expensive and America bears the brunt tangible costs with big pharma passing along the costs to her citizens with our disastrous medical system that by some accounts, is still the best in the world.  

In New Zealand, the use of human subjects including children as young as 6 years old, in trials of a novel GE {Genetically Engineered} food is being condemned by scientists internationally and by GE Free NZ (in food and environment).  GE ‘golden rice’ has been promoted as a solution to malnutrition, despite other readily-available sources of vitamin A.  Deficiencies of the vitamin are a cause of blindness among the poor.

“‘Pharming’ will blur the distinction between food and chemicals, disrupting our brand image far more significantly than the recent melamine contamination in milk powder in China.  Allowing human feeding trials of this experimental rice is highly concerning and  a frightening breach of human rights,” says Jon Carapiet from GE-Free New Zealand.  http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/WO0902/S00328.htm

No where in mainstream media, is this report out about American pharmaceutical company Baxter- sending to Chech Republic, Slovenia and Germany bird flu vaccines that were found to contain actual deadly flu virus instead of the vaccine!  Baxter flu vaccines contaminated with H5N1 – otherwise known as the human form of avian flu, one of the most deadly biological weapons on earth with a 60% kill rate – were received by labs in the Czech Republic, Germany, and Sloveniahttp://www.torontosun.com/news/canada/2009/02/27/8560781.html
 
Of course, Baxter invoked trade secrets and refused to reveal how the vaccines were contaminated with H5N1, finally admitting that pure H5N1 batches were sent by accident.  On Friday {March 6, 2009}, the company’s director of global bioscience communications confirmed what scientists have suspected. “It was live,” Christopher Bona said in an email.   The contaminated product, which Baxter calls “experimental virus material,” was made at the Orth-Donau  research facility. Baxter makes its flu vaccine — including a human H5N1 vaccine for which a license is expected shortly — at a facility in the Czech Republic. 

People familiar with biosecurity rules are dismayed by evidence that human H3N2 and avian H5N1 viruses somehow co-mingled in the Orth-Donau facility. That is a dangerous practice that should not be allowed to happen, a number of experts insisted.   Accidental release of a mixture of live H5N1 and H3N2 viruses could have resulted in dire consequences. Ya think?  Did they send it regular mail or on an airplane with 200 happy people going on vacation?  Was it labeled as hazardous medical so a terrorist could know what to steal?  Mind numbing ignorance.

While H5N1 doesn’t easily infect people, H3N2 viruses do. If someone exposed to a mixture of the two had been simultaneously infected with both strains, he or she could have served as an incubator for a hazardous mixed virus able to transmit easily to and among people.   That mixing process, called reassortment, is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created. 
 
“This was seemingly an attempt to quickly change the story and hide the fact that the accidental contamination of a vaccine with a deadly biological agent like avian flu is virtually impossible and the only way it could have happened was by willful gross criminal negligence,” said Dr. Orly Taitz at http://defendourfreedoms.us/2009/03/10/meeting-with-scalia-and-coordinated-cyber-attack.aspx

The contamination incident came to light when the subcontractor in the Czech Republic inoculated ferrets with the product and they died. Ferrets shouldn’t die from exposure to human H3N2 flu viruses.  Imagine if they had inoculated infants rather than ferrets.

Baxter International Inc.(NYSE: BAX)  “develops, manufactures and markets products that save and sustain the lives of people with hemophilia, immune disorders, infectious diseases, kidney disease, trauma, and other chronic and acute medical conditions. http://www.baxter.com/  The company has no mention of this mistake of epic proportion on their website.

According to the Baxter site they have two products on the market: a vaccine against tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) and a vaccine against group C meningococcal meningitishttp://www.baxtervaccines.com/?node_id=312 I think we can all agree how happy we are that this “mixing process,” didn’t affect these two vaccines already widely in use. 

According to the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) three virus strains, usually two type A and one type B, are selected each year before flu vaccine production starts. This is done after a careful investigation of the circulating strains and their mutations and they pick and choose the most likely to populate. 

The CDC recommends getting vaccinated now to protect against late-circulating flu viruses and provides state pandemic Web site information at http://www.pandemicflu.gov/whereyoulive/index.html.  From all accounts the last time it was updated for the heavily populated state of New York was in 2006. http://www.health.state.ny.us/diseases/communicable/influenza/pandemic/docs/pandemic_influenza_plan.pdf  Check your state here http://www.pandemicflu.gov/plan/states/stateplans.html.

I wonder if pandemic planning activities include all the FEMA camps and train rides? 

The CDC has a list of the number of vaccines recommended for children and adults from the eradicated Polio to the newly identified diseases like Cervical Cancer who’s prevention for a few of the strains lies in the vaccine Gardasil; which is now mandated by the U.S. Government for all female immigrants.  http://www.cispimmunize.org/ 

The alleged link between thimerosal and autism has spawned numerous investigations, including a fantastic Rolling Stone article by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. that claims that the government was/is engaged in a medical cover-up. http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/7395411/deadly_immunity/

“All parents and patients should be informed about the risks and benefits of preventive and therapeutic procedures, including vaccination. In the case of vaccination, federal law mandates this discussion.”  http://www.cispimmunize.org/pro/pdf/RefusaltoVaccinate.pdf Physicians are also mandated to keep records of patients who refuse.  If you refuse to vaccinate your children, will your doctor enforce the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act which gives states the right to literally steal your children for up to 48 hours — the time they have to prove child neglect OR abuse and then vaccinate them?

Does big pharma operate with the morals to prevent mortality? 

Someday, you will die.
