Universal Flu Vaccine Could Be Available By 2013

Here's an excerpt:


Annual flu shots might soon become a thing of the past, and threats such as avian and swine flu might disappear with them as a vaccine touted as the "holy grail" of flu treatment could be ready for human trials next year.

That's earlier than the National Institutes of Health estimated in 2010, when they said a universal vaccine could be five years off. By targeting the parts of the virus that rarely mutate, researchers believe they can develop a vaccine similar to the mumps or measles shot—people will be vaccinated as children and then receive boosters later.

That differs from the current '60s-era technology, according to Joseph Kim, head of Inovio Pharmaceuticals, which is working on the universal vaccine. Each year, the seasonal flu vaccine targets three or four strains that researchers believe will be the most common that year. Previous seasons' vaccines have no effect on future strains of the virus, because it mutates quickly. The seasonal vaccine also offers no protection against outbreaks, such as 2009's H1N1 swine flu. A universal vaccine would offer protection against all forms of the virus.

"It's like putting up a tent over your immune system that protects against rapidly mutating viruses," Kim says. At least two other companies are working on a similar vaccine. In late 2010, Inovio earned a $3.1 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to work on the vaccine.


My personal opinion is that this is BS.

They don't want a vaccine that would be available once, and then as a booster every so often, there would be no profit in this. The yearly vaccine is their best weapon to profit from, and cull the population.

Also, the threat of swine and avian flu disappearing because of this? I don't think so somehow, they would keep creating more and more bioweapons.

It states that it works by attacking the parts of the virus that cause a mutation, so why are scientists always using their labs for creating deadlier mutations of these viruses rather than something worthwhile, if the mutations are to be stopped by this vaccine/booster programme?

Eughh, this reeks of "don't worry, we'll help you" *backs turned, "hahaha they fell for it again" usual bs*

And yet, that's how almost every other vaccine on the planet works. I'm going to go with the NIH's opinion over your personal opinion on this one.

True. Never thought of that, but then again, why would they need to worry about other diseases, when the Flu is the one that is always shown to spread much quicker, and much more effectively, therefore making it a much better weapon, negating the need to yearly vaccinate against other organisms.

They want to poison people regularly with vaccines, and they will make up anything at all to get it to every single person in the world is possible. In America is bad enough, when they make vaccines mandatory they can TRY to force me.

could be, would be, should be. What ever gets them more funding.

flue shots arn't a huge source of money. They tend to be free or almost free in the states. People spend more on products like airborn.

Only problems is vaccines do not work never have and never will there is no evidence they have ever worked and it is perhaps the greats health/medical hoax for profit in the history of medicine. Only the ignorant would consider taking such poison into thier body. All these so called experts that create and tout vaccines please show us video proof you and your families take them regularly... ;-)

You'll probably find your government pays for them with your taxes.

They just tell you they're "free" to make you feel like you have won a prize.
