WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Five companies received more than $1 billion in contracts to develop new and better influenza vaccines, and to make them on U.S. territory, the U.S. Health and Human Services Department said on Thursday.

BL Fisher Note:
If the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services has given $1 billion dollars out of the taxpayers pocketbook to drug companies to create new flu vaccines, you can bet that when those flu vaccines are ready to be sold to a public they have conditioned to live in abject fear of a case of the flu, government health officials will be lobbying states to pass laws mandating that every citizen get a flu shot every year.

How else will those drug companies make big bucks after they get a big handout from Uncle Sam for creating vaccines that public health officials persuade politicians to force everybody to use?

The irony is that if the M.D./Ph.D. "experts" are wrong about mandated use of flu vaccine from birth to prevent all natural experience with type A and type B flu, if their zealous enforcement of mass vaccination policies create a virgin population without any immunological experience with the natural disease, then the day that pandemic flu virus does show up, it might well take out half of humanity.

It is dangerous business to make us vaccine dependent, vulnerable to vaccine-induced chronic inflammation as well as unable to successfully meet the challenge from flu viruses without serious complications. But then, there is always money to be made in developing drugs to try to counteract the problems too much vaccination creates.
