3. How many states are actually passing, have passed or are contemplating these types of laws?
4. Do they actually have the technology to create and implant an RFID device small enough to fit in a syringe/flu shot?
5. Is it possible to create or make an RFID detection device yourself cheaply?
6. What is the main difference between this Vaccine and "normal" flu vaccine.
7. What are the estimates for infection and death this flu season from both normal flu and swine flu?
1. No--One of the many nasty components is mercury
2. Taking the vaccine will harm your immune system
3. Couldn't tell ya
5. I saw a scientific american article with 10000 rfid chips in a one gram vial, you couldn't see them.
6. People have been charged with murder for administering the vaccine to homeless people who then died in Europe
7. The stats that I saw looked similar for both swine and normal flu mortality rates.
it when idiots give medical advice without knowing what the hell they're talking about!
1. Show me proof that thimerosal is absolutely included in all versions of the vaccine. That's right -- you can't. And for you kids out there,
thimerosal is the ethyl-mercury containing preservative in vaccines.
. Single-dose syringes will be thimerosal-free, which will address concerns about this additive, especially regarding pediatric and pregnant
vaccine recipients (inhaler sprayer vaccine products will also be thimerosal-free).
Now, personally, I wouldn't get the swine flu. Not this early. It's still very early in the production and trials, so any effects wouldn't really
show up yet. Unless you're both in a high risk age or health group and in an area where you're at a high risk of being exposed to H1N1, I wouldn't
get vaccinated just yet. Probably not even for a while, since I don't think that H1N1 is much more dangerous than the regular flu. There's a lot
worse things to worry about in my opinon.
2. I'd like to see any evidence that taking the H1N1 vaccine will "harm your immune system." This sort of quackery pisses me the hell off, but oh
well. But the truth is that H1N1 is generally mild and should pass fine with treatment. Just be careful if you're not feeling well.
3. This is more of a yes, but no sort of thing. Is it possible, yes. Is this technology where is has to be (trials, etc.) for you to worry about
4. Worrying about this is silly. I'd like to say no, but really, it doesn't matter. If there was anything like that in a shot it would probably
have to be higher gauge than other shots and it would be a really big deal. The medical establishment wouldn't go along with its secrecy, and
keeping it hidden would be impossible.
5. Stop worrying about it. Seriously. There's no way they'd get a transmitter that small into you due to power requirements (battery). An RFID
would need to be scanned externally. You'd notice if they put an something like that into you.
6. Once again Mumbotron responded with something completely nonsensical and unrelated to your question. The difference between the H1N1 vaccine and
the seasonal flu vaccine is that the H1N1 vaccine is for one particular flu strain. The seasonal flu vaccine is a hybrid vaccine that is changed
every year with the seasonal flu mutations.
The composition of virus vaccines for use in the 2009-2010 Northern Hemisphere influenza season recommended by the World Health Organization on
February 12, 2009 was: * an A/Brisbane/59/2007 (H1N1)-like virus; * an A/Brisbane/10/2007 (H3N2)-like virus; * a
B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus. Since the A/Brisbane/59/2007 (H1N1)-like virus used in the vaccine is a seasonal strain of influenza, it cannot create
immunity to the new, non-seasonal strain of influenza A virus subtype H1N1 responsible for the 2009 swine flu outbreak.
How severe is illness associated with novel H1N1 flu virus?
Illness with the new H1N1 virus has ranged from mild to severe. While most people who have been sick have recovered without needing medical treatment,
hospitalizations and deaths from infection with this virus have occurred.
In seasonal flu, certain people are at “high risk” of serious complications. This includes people 65 years and older, children younger than five
years old, pregnant women, and people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions. About 70 percent of people who have been hospitalized with
this novel H1N1 virus have had one or more medical conditions previously recognized as placing people at “high risk” of serious seasonal
flu-related complications. This includes pregnancy, diabetes, heart disease, asthma and kidney disease.
One thing that appears to be different from seasonal influenza is that adults older than 64 years do not yet appear to be at increased risk of novel
H1N1-related complications thus far. CDC laboratory studies have shown that no children and very few adults younger than 60 years old have existing
antibody to novel H1N1 flu virus; however, about one-third of adults older than 60 may have antibodies against this virus. It is unknown how much, if
any, protection may be afforded against novel H1N1 flu by any existing antibody.
Really, just treat it like any flu. If you have a fever above what you would consider safe, see a doctor. If you have any fever for an extended
period of time, see a doctor. If you're sicker than you normally are.....you get the point.
