I was in tech school at Chanute Air Force Base in Rantoul, Illinois in the late 1970's.

My entire barracks was given the swine flue shot.
It was just after I got married so I was moving off base.

The shot got me & many, many others very sick.

My new bride called into the base emergency room to take me to the Hospital.
They said "Only bring him in his fever went over 106.
We are swamped.
There is no place to put him.
Don't bring him unless his fever rise's over 106."

It stayed at 106 for a day or so.
God I was delusional for the last 24 hours.
Then just as they said.
I got better & dragged myself to back to work.
Without going to the Hospital.

I heard back that the only people that got sick were from Michigan.
That the Food Program in the schools had been slip'ed Kangaroo meat,
that was repackaged as Beef in Canada.

It was high in protean & one of the State Up'ity Up's had convinced that it was ok for him too pocket a few bucks in the process.
Besides it had higher protean than Beef & less fat.

Well the scuttlebutt was that the vaccine had been somehow done in Kangaroo's.
That those students that had been eating it developed some kind of thing that caused us to have the reaction.

Was this BS just to shut us up?
Or
Is this a good explanation for the reaction we had to the vaccine?

I only bring this up seeing the posts about the mexican swine flu outbreak.

How many other people were experiencing similar symptoms?

When I was in the USMC, almost everyone in my unit got the anthrax vaccine. They told us about a month beforehand, so I made it so I'd be on leave. I didn't like the idea of the side effects. There was probably only one guy in the barracks that had really bad side effects, everyone else was perfectly okay (only getting flu symptoms for a few days).

The Kangaroo story is believable. When I lived overseas (3rd world), my dog bit a kid. We took him to the hospital even though the parents didn't even request it. I opted to give the kid the Equine(horse) version of the vaccine instead of the one human one because of the cost vs. the hour waiting at the hospital with him. This doesn't mean it was made for horses, just that it was made from horses.

Anyway, animals are often used to create vaccines for humans.

What do you think the "thing" was that students who had been eating kangaroo meat had developed?

Is it anything like the "thing" you develop from eating cow meat vs ostrich meat?

Or crab meat vs. shrimp meat?

I am a Tech.
I have experience in Electronics, Aviation & Metals.
I don't have any experience with Bio.

That is why I posted this.
I know that someone in the field might be able to explain it to me.
Preferably in something other than genetic code.
I could handle Binary or Machine code.
But the Medical stuff eludes me.

Off Topic ----

Sorry about the guy that was in the Airforce hanger that was hit by the skud.
He passed away not to far from here.
I got to meet him.
Great guy.
40 something that looked 80+.
I hate to think what they really dropped on him.
He had cancer in every organ.
If they would have fessed up on that one.
The American public would have been behind going in 2000 per cent.
Bush missed so many opportunities to bring us together.

His family should get some kind of award or something.

Any one that has any background in Bio please throw in your 2 cents.

Thanks

All swine flu related threads are to be posted in the Swine Flu and Other Diseases and Pandemics forum.

1976 Swine Flu shots caused an avalanche of Guillian Burre cases.
'The Coming Plague' by Laurie Garrett - chapter 6 - tells all about it.

This is true (about 500 cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome were linked to the Swine Flu vaccine given in 1976, or about one case in every 100,000 patients vaccinated).

But fever is not a symptom of GBS, certainly not a life-threatening fever like 106 degrees.

eMedicine article about Guillain-Barre Syndrome

I haven't been able to turn up any information on this event in a couple of Google searches, but maybe someone else will be more helpful.

I started this tread before they announced that they were going to create a new area just for the topic.

Can you move it to the right area without wacking the tags?

Can you delete the duplicate inactive tread?

Thanks ---
