Ok then. I got that anthrax jab in the army in 1991. In 2005 the pain in my right hip was so severe I couldn't ignore it anymore. I went for testing, all of them but no diagnosis was made other than scoliosis, rheumatoid arthritis and fused disks in my lower spine for the excrutiating pain in my right hip. I received 3 injections of steroids in my spine over 4 months but no diagnosis for the pain. Since then, the entire right side of my body feels like a constant charlie horse. This is the first thing I've heard of that explains the unexplainable pain I've been in. The doctors tried to make me think it was all in my head!
If that is what is in the vaccine, I'm definitely not taking it no matter what.
Pathogenetic studies of adjuvant-induced arthritis
Adjuvant-induced arthritis models in rats serve as relevant models for RA, having many clinical similarities to this disease. In this thesis, two adjuvant oils, Incomplete Freund's Adjuvant (IFA) and the endogenous cholesterol precursor squalene, were used to induce arthritis in rats. The general aim was to gain knowledge as to when, where and how these adjuvants trigger disease, since the pathogenetic mechanisms by which these adjuvant oils induce a T cell-dependent, joint-restricted inflammation are largely unknown.
In this thesis we clearly demonstrated that squalene alone was capable of inducing a T cell- dependent and erosive polyarthritis that could be transferred by in vitro concanavalin Astimulated lymph node cells. We further demonstrated that squalene accumulated in the draining lymph nodes rather than in joints, excluding the hypothesis of preferential homing of adjuvant to joints.

Squalene is a cholesterol precursor, which stimulates the immune system nonspecifically. We demonstrate that one intradermal injection of this adjuvant lipid can induce joint-specific inflammation in arthritis-prone DA rats. Histopathological and immunohistochemical analyses revealed erosion of bone and cartilage, and that development of polyarthritis coincided with infiltration of ß+ T cells.
Arthritis development was provoked in Oia3-congenic rats by intradermal injection of different adjuvant oils. One successful arthritis trigger was squalene, which is approved for vaccinations in humans and has been implicated in Gulf War syndrome.

Reading that wikipedia article on Squalene does NOT indicate that what is in the syringe for the Pig flu virus is the mutated form. Squalene is either a benign substance that is in lotions and shark liver supplements -- or it's causing autoimmune reactions.
I'm not seeing proof that it's in the immunization -- does anyone have that? Or did I miss it?
Pandemrix - influenza virus H5N1, inactivated, vaccine, with AS03 adjuvant
polysorbate 80 (Tween 80
potassium dihydrogen phosphate
GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccine will be made up of antigens of the recently isolated influenza strain, and also contains its own proprietary adjuvant system AS03 that has been approved in the EU along with its H5N1 bird flu vaccine in 2008. According to the European Public Assessment Report , AS03 adjuvant is composed of squalene (10.68 milligrams), DL-α-tocopherol (11.86 milligrams) and polysorbate 80 (4.85 milligrams). The H5N1 vaccine also contains 5 micrograms thiomersal, as well as Polysorbate 80, Octoxynol 10, and various inorganic salts. The company is aggressively promoting various adjuvant systems as its ‘adjuvant advantage’ that reduces the dose of vaccines .
