Tamiflu is just an anti viral... it would, in truth, make more people get the vaccine if the were told that the antiviral you take is pointless

Is this good news that they are at last admitting how completely useless Tamiflu is or is it really a way to push us towards the 'untested' vaccine?
Tamiflu was the first orally active neuraminidase inhibitor developed commercially. Gilead Sciences developed the drug, but Roche marketed it under its current trade name. In 1999, the FDA approved Tamiflu for the treatment of the flu in people ages one and older, and for the prevention of the flu in adolescents and adults.
At first, the drug's sales were unimpressive. However, fears of an avian flu pandemic and the subsequent international stockpile of Tamiflu led to a spike in Roche's profits. The company went from $76 million in sales of the drug in 2001 to $700 million in 2005.[/x]
As with any drugs Tamiflu has become resistance to the same diseases that it has been promise to fight.
Plus is also very dangerous when used improperly.
