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?

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

Breathe, Breathe in the Swine Flu Air.  

Updated 8pm 10-06-09 Following the money honey.  ” MedImmune Vaccines Inc. of Gaithersburg, MD received a $32 million firm-fixed-price sole source contract. 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/

The Obama Health Care Plan might work if a ton of  people die from the Swine Flu.  There won’t be as many people to strain the system when they are dead, and just imagine the windfall for the economy for those who survive after collecting the death tax.

In keeping with media’s bias and fear mongering, The Associated Press is reporting that, ” U.S. health officials say swine flu could strike up to 40 percent of Americans over the next two years and as many as several hundred thousand could die if a vaccine campaign and other measures aren’t successful.http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hjdCHrP82YTFser5vD6CzTK1az6wD99KT0NO2

The World Health Organization says as many as 2 billion people could become infected over the next two years — nearly one-third of the world population. The estimates look at potential impacts over a two-year period because past flu pandemics have occurred in waves over more than one year.

” The good news: Despite a brisk flu season in the Southern Hemisphere, the new swine flu is not yet mutating to become more dangerous, said Dr. Nancy Cox of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Cox said “it’s actually quite surprising” that the virus is showing so little genetic variation given its rapid spread. It has sickened more than a million people in the U.S. alone since April and circled the globe in a matter of weeks.”  http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleId=489729&publicationSubCategoryId=200 

Vaccine manufacturers are claiming that they should have as many as 160 million doses of swine flu vaccine available sometime in October now that they have been given freedom from liability. The testing and injecting has already begun.   The article says “One bright spot: The U.S. has the world’s only nasal-spray flu vaccine, and maker announced Thursday that it’s producing plenty — so many millions of doses a month that it cannot keep up with putting them into the special sprayer required to use it.(emphasis mine) So MedImmune Inc. is working with the government to see if it can race out a different method for fall, simply dripping its swine flu vaccine into people’s noses.”

“A dropper instead of a sprayer works as well,” said MedImmune vice president Dr. Ben Machielse.   Wow- that the way to profit on a pandemic!

How is it they are already producing a nasal swine flu vaccine without any testing?  Roll up your sleeve or inhale  the Swine Flu? 

Might as well bend right over and take it in the a$$…
