As for the Canadian vaccination problem this is one report,
[British drugs giant GlaxoSmithKline has warned the Canadian medical authorities that a batch of its anti-H1N1 vaccine can trigger potentially
dangerous allergic reactions. The Canadians have withdrawn the batch from use and are testing it after it produced a range of serious reactions,
notably in the heart and lungs. The recall affects 172,000 dises of the Arepanrix vaccine.
“We’ve been asked by the manufacturer GSK not to use this vaccine at this time pending further investigation,” said Manitoba chief medical
officer Joel Kettner.
Thirty-six Canadians, including one little boy whose face swelled up like a balloon, suffered severe allergic reactions after vaccination. 200 others
“It is a serious thing that has the potential to kill – but fortunately seems to be relatively rare,” said Dr Neil Rau, an infectious disease
Canada has been particularly badly hit by the flu virus, and has vaccinated around a fifth of its population, or nearly seven million people, already.
GSK has sold seven point five million doses to Canada.]
When you read the last paragraph above, it would seem that Canada has a different scenario than the US, or did they go ahead with mass vaccination,
(to their cost) using the same presumptuous method as the US and vaccinating people needlessly on the basis of misleading stats?
the quote is from a current ATS thread here,
It was sourced from this good link,
Have a look at Scotland's story while you're there, looks pertinent to this thread.
edit to add,
In fact there is a new heading for Canada, it now reports that there has been very few swine 'flu cases!! the older heading can be found way down the
Jane Burgermeister's site The 'Flu case, took the original Canadian story from this site,
You will now see that that same story has been altered, (because of factual inaccuracies) and has now no mention of deaths, where it had previously
said that 200 people had died...that's a big inaccuracy!
Now, the changes have come not long after the WHO have stated that there has been no swine 'flu vaccination related deaths??
