The NHS is preparing to vaccinate the entire population against swine flu.
"By 1853, Parliament began passing laws to make the untested vaccine compulsory
throughout the British Empire. Other countries of Europe followed suit. Once the
economic implications of compulsory vaccinations were realized, few dared to
disagree. Then, as now, the media were controlled by the vaccine manufacturers
and the government, who stood to make huge money from the sale of these spurious
vaccines."... Tim O'Shea, D.C.
1. What’s in the regular flu shot?
Egg proteins: including avian contaminant viruses

Polysorbate 80 (Tween80™): can cause severe allergic reactions,
Formaldehyde: known carcinogen
Triton X100: a strong detergent
Sucrose: table sugar
Resin: known to cause allergic reactions
Gentamycin: an antibiotic
Thimerosal: mercury is still in multidose vials
2. Do flu shots work?
Not in babies: In a review of more than 51 studies involving more than
294,000 children it was found there was “no evidence that injecting
children 6-24 months of age with a flu shotwas any more effective than
placebo. In children over 2 yrs, it was only effective 33% of the time in
preventing the flu. Reference: Vaccines for preventing influenza in healthy
children." The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. 2 (2008).
Not in children with asthma: A study 800 children with asthma,
where one half were vaccinated and the other half did not receive the
influenza vaccine. The two groups were compared with respect to
clinic visits, emergency department (ED) visits, and hospitalizations
for asthma. CONCLUSION: This study failed to provide evidence that
the influenza vaccine prevents pediatric asthma exacerbation

Everybody should be glad that their government cares enough about their safety to prepare for the worst. Me and my family will gladly go and get the shot if need be. I only hope our country prepares as well as yours.
Netherlands buys 34 million flu vaccines
The government is to buy 34 million doses of vaccine against swine flu - once it has been developed, Trouw reports on Friday.
The aim of the vaccine is to prevent between 4,000 and 10,000 deaths next winter, the paper says.
The health ministry order is enough to provide two doses for every man, woman and child in the country. Two doses are thought necessary because the flu virus is a new one, the paper says.
