Regarding the Pneumonia vaccine.

I just ran across this at WebMD


You're right in that bacterial pneumonia is often one of the main things that kills people who have the flu (about 36,000 people die from the flu every year). Sometimes that bacteria is pneumococcus. Sometimes it's other bacteria, like staphylococcus. The pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine (more commonly known as just the pneumonia vaccine) would help if it's pneumococcus. However, many of those that have died from swine flu have died from viral pneumonia. This means that the swine flu virus itself is causing the lung infection and inflammation. Unfortunately, a pneumococcal vaccine wouldn't have helped in these instances.


So did I just waste my time getting the pneumonia vaccine?

Well, you'll still be more suspectible to a bacterial pneumonia too because this flu weakens and primes your immune system for other attacks for about 6 months after you are infected.

State health officials report 1st swine flu-related death in Utah; man had medical conditions (Update 2)
www.39online.com...

2:17 PM MDT, May 20, 2009
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — State health officials are reporting the first death associated with swine flu in Utah.

David Sundwall, executive director of the Utah Department of Health, says a 22-year-old man with swine flu died Wednesday morning at a Salt Lake City hospital.

Sundwall says the man was overweight and had chronic medical conditions, including respiratory problems and other health issues, that would put him at risk.

Not including the Utah death, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports eight swine deaths in the United States.

The CDC says 47 states and District of Columbia have a combined 5,710 confirmed and probable cases.

It's a vaccine they recommend to healthcare workers during flu season specifically. From what we can tell quite a few of the long term flu victims developed secondary pneumonia which the vaccine will prevent. The cyto storm immune response is not really pneumonia, it's a faster issue that just happens to also produce liquid in the lungs. That's actually classified as pulmonary edema from what I've read.

Hx3.....I thought I would post one of your links below..



PRINCETON, NJ -- Even as the H1N1 virus -- aka "swine flu" -- continues to spread nationwide, with confirmed cases now reported in all 50 states, Americans' concern about contracting the illness has declined. Just 13% of U.S. adults now say they worried "yesterday" about getting this particular strain of flu, down from a high of 25% at the end of April and the previous low of 17% in the first week of May.

Speaking of MRSA, even Reuters seems to be in on it, from yesterday evening:
Reuters



LONDON (Reuters) - Deadly pneumonia caused by so-called superbugs are spreading outside hospitals and represent a growing threat to the public, U.S. researchers warned on Wednesday.

Making the problem more worrying is the recent H1N1 flu outbreak because the "super-bug" pneumonia most commonly appears following an influenza-like illness, Alicia Hidron of the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta reported.

As I have said before on here, I work in healthcare and I only have a couple co-workers that have even given this a second thought. I am pleased that the head of our infection control unit is concerned and taking precautions, however, it is hard to implement precautions when the rest of the workforce don't see a need to be concerned.

Oh for goodness sake! The information might be widely available for all who care to find it but the point of THIS THREAD is for news and updates to be put in one single place, for those of us that don't have time to go searching. I'd also like to point out that not all countries have free internet access available.

The data might not be hidden but no-one should have to go searching for information. It should be being made clear to the public. However, as has already been suggested, that is another topic. It was also suggested that you start a thread about that topic.

Now can we please get back to the purpose of this thread which is to get news and updates all in one place.

So now someone is saying the numbers are off which we here at ATS have known all along. Does anyone remember the total of possible deaths in Mexico at the outbreak in late April? My thoughts are on the actual mortality rate from confirmed cases is also being reported low to keep the sheeple off guard. I think the mortality rate is as high as 2% but with no concrete numbers it is impossible to convince anyone.
