Swine Flu Vaccine: Will We Have A Choice?

by Barbara Loe Fisher

The summer will be over before we know it and it will be time for the school year to begin. This fall, many parents are wondering what will happen to their children when they enter the schools. Some public health doctors want to turn schools into vaccination clinics where children will be the first to be injected with experimental swine flu vaccines.

Less Than 50,000 Swine Flu Cases Worldwide

Every day we are being warned by doctors at the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to worry a lot about the H1N1 influenza A virus, which was first identified in Mexico in April 2009 and is being called the new swine flu. As of June 15, 2009, the World Health Organization states that 76 countries have reported more than 35,000 cases, including 163 deaths. 108 of those deaths have occurred in Mexico.

We are being told that nearly 18,000 Americans have gotten sick from the new swine flu virus, with about 5 percent being hospitalized and 45 dying. It looks like people, who are in poor health to begin with are at greater risk of having complications and dying from the new swine flu, which has symptoms just like regular influenza. This is not surprising because people in poor health are always at greater risk of having complications and dying from infectious disease.

Most Flu-Like Illness Not True Influenza

What a lot of people don’t know is that true type A or type B influenza only causes about 20 percent of all flu-like symptoms that people experience during any given flu season. 80 percent of all flu-like illness in a normal flu season is NOT caused by the type A and B strains of influenza contained in annual flu shots. And vaccine acquired immunity is temporary, while immunity gained after recovering from influenza is longer lasting.

1968 Flu Pandemic Killed 34,000 Americans

The new type A H1N1 influenza virus public health doctors say is making people sick around the world is an unusual combination of human, bird and pig viruses9. Nobody seems to know exactly how this new virus was created and why it suddenly emerged from Mexico in mid-April - or if it will behave like past pandemic influenza viruses that caused 68,000 American deaths in 1957 and killed 34,000 Americans in 196810. (The CDC states that 36,000 Americans die from influenza complications annually, with most of those deaths occurring in the elderly and those in poor health). Influenza pandemics usually start with mild symptoms and progress to more severe symptoms before populations acquire immunity to the virus and it dies out.

Older Americans May Have Antibodies Against Swine Flu

The good news about the new swine flu going around is that there are signs those of us born before 1957, may be naturally protected and at LOWER risk of being infected. Why? Because we recovered from influenza caused by similar influenza strains that circulated in past decades and have long lasting antibodies that help us resist infection. So the aging baby boomers have something to be happy about.

Vaccinated Children Don’t Have Natural Antibodies

But will health officials allow our children and grandchildren to get those same kind of natural protective antibodies to type A and B influenza, including this new swine flu? It doesn’t look like it. First, doctors in America have been insisting for the past few years that every child from six months old to age 18 must get an annual flu shot. Second, there are now calls by U.S. health officials to give American children the first doses of experimental swine flu vaccines in the school setting.

WHO Declares Phase 6 Alert; Public Health Doctors Exercise EUA

This is because the response by doctors at the World Health Organization, who immediately went into high gear within days of identifying the new swine flu virus emerging out of Mexico, was to declare a public health emergency. Now, they have increased the pandemic flu fear alert to Phase 6, which is the equivalent of the U.S. Homeland Security’s Code Red warning of an imminent terrorist attack. Doctors at the Centers for Disease Control, who followed the lead of the World Health Organization, have done the same and are exercising unprecedented power that Congress handed over to them after 9-11.

Fast Tracking of Experimental Vaccines With Novel Adjuvants

Whenever the CDC declares a public health emergency, that declaration allows the Food and Drug Administration to permit emergency use authorization for drug companies to fast track creation of experimental drugs and vaccines that do not have to be tested as thoroughly as vaccines that go through the normal FDA licensing process. In this case, Congress responded to the public health emergency declaration by giving a group of drug companies one billion dollarsto fast track experimental swine flu vaccines that may include whole live19, killed or genetically engineered human and animal influenza viruses, chemicals, and potentially reactive oil based adjuvants that manipulate the immune system to boost the vaccine’s potency.

States Enact Stronger Quarantine & No Free Assembly Laws

In some states, like Massachusetts, public health doctors have persuaded legislators to quickly pass pandemic influenza legislation that will allow state officials to enter the homes and businesses without the approval of occupants; to investigate and quarantine individuals without their consent; to require licensed health care providers to give citizens vaccines and to ban the free assembly of citizens in the state.

What Can You Do?

What does this declaration of a public health emergency in the U.S. mean for you and your family? It means that, right now, you need to become educated about vaccination, influenza, vaccine risks, and the public health laws in your state. You need to find out what your rights and options are under new public health laws that may require you and your children to get vaccinated or be quarantined.

Take Action Now

Go to www.NVIC.org and learn more. Register now to attend the Fourth International Public Conference on Vaccination Oct. 2-4, 2009 in Washington, D.C. and help organize in your state to protect your right to informed consent to vaccination. Call and write the state legislators you elected to make public health laws that govern you and your family. Make your voice heard.

Homeland Security, Department of Defense & CDC

As Department of Homeland Security officials are declaring that any disease outbreak is a matter of homeland security as Department of Defense officials are defining public demonstrations as “low level terrorism;” as CDC officials make plans to re-route airplanes to designated airports with quarantine centers to screen all passengers for signs of swine flu; and as fast tracked experimental pandemic flu vaccines are being created to be given to American children first, it is time for all of us – whether we are public health officials addressing what we believe is a true public health emergency or whether we are ordinary citizens simply trying to protect our health and the health of our children - to act in rational and responsible ways.

Protect Health Choices

Every pharmaceutical drug, including vaccines, carries a risk and those risks are greater for some than others. In this time of fear, we cannot let that fear take away our freedom to make voluntary health choices, including vaccine choices, so we have the power to make sure that the cure is not more dangerous than the disease.

Thank you ford-to-know information. I like to make decisions, after being fully informed.

Please, AMERICA, we must get educated. We must NOT allow vaccinations to continue! They keep coming up with new ones, basically without testing them (as if that will make them good for something besides more illness). We must get educated and fight back against government control of what goes into our bodies. They are up to no good again. Big-Pharma and Big-Government. You guessed it, Melting

Barbara,

Always pleased to read your blog updates.

In regards to your latest 'Swine Flu' Op Ed.

If and when you have the time please go to the link provided. I think you will find this interesting and relevant to your latest blog update which I would like to follow up.

State exemption forms WILL not help you if the feds mandate forced vaccines. So says Arkansas health official. Click on link, listen to phone call.

Health official says forced vaccinations constitutional!

Don't know if he means state or U.S. 'constitution'.

Voluminous Research Proves Vaccines are Deadly.

An Infowars reader sent the following list of references proving vaccines are deadly. The next time somebody calls you a conspiracy nut for warning about vaccines, print out this list and give it to them.

Dear Barbara,

I am compelled to emphasize that we all consider natural immunization. It seems that many are not aware of natural immunization, and we all should be.

NASA technology being used on the ISS in space should be put to use here on earth. UPCOSH is a new category of the most advanced natural immunization technology and has been utilized in Bionaid.

Vaccine proponents have failed, for almost a year, to meet the $1 million challenge regarding Bionaid and ZeoHeal that begs the question - if medical immunization is more safe and effective than natural immunization, why not take the challenge and prove it? They have continued to fail in responding to the challenge, naturally.

The government of Ghana, where people greatly appreciate this health breakthrough from a perspective of a nation that is suffering from fatal illnesses and vaccine side-effects have made Bionaid the #1 health supplement after seeing safe and effective results with natural immunization.

Many may see this as a promotional advertisement because a product is being mentioned, and will set aside the life-saving, alternative to vaccines and drugs and indirectly support vaccine proponents by missing the point and focusing on a non-issue.

To settle their concerns on this let me offer the fact that thousands of dollars in UPCOSH have been donated. In America, its about national security and freedom of choice, and being well-informed here, not the money.

More good news! ZeoHeal removes vaccine residues that cause serious side-effects. It removes alot of trash from the body that allows for even more natural immunity.

A swine influenza virus (SIV) is any strain of the influenza family of viruses that is usually hosted by (is endemic in) pigs.[2] As of 2009, the known SIV strains are the influenza C virus and the subtypes of the influenza A virus known as H1N1, H1N2, H3N1, H3N2, and H2N3. Swine flu is common throughout pig populations worldwide.

Transmission of swine influenza virus from pigs to humans is not common and does not always cause human influenza, often only resulting in the production of antibodies in the blood. The meat of the animal poses no risk of transmitting the virus when properly cooked. If transmission does cause human influenza, it is called zoonotic swine flu. People who work with pigs, especially people with intense exposures, are at increased risk of catching swine flu. In the mid-20th century, identification of influenza subtypes became possible, which allows accurate diagnosis of transmission to humans. Since then, fifty confirmed transmissions have been recorded. Rarely, these strains of swine flu can pass from human to human. In humans, the symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of influenza and of influenza-like illness in general, namely chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe headache, coughing, weakness and general discomfort. Pigs can also become infected with human influenza, and this appears to have happened during the 1918 flu pandemic.[3]

The 2009 swine flu outbreak in humans is due to a new strain of influenza A virus subtype H1N1 that contains genes closely related to swine influenza.[4] The origin of this new strain is unknown. However, the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) reports that this strain has not been isolated in pigs.[5] This strain can be transmitted from human to human,[6] and causes the normal symptoms of influenza

Barbara,
I read "Daily News" ( NYC )today.

-Kids 1st in Oct swine flu vaccine push -

"A new Swine flu vaccine will be availavle in October, and millions of schoolkids will be first in line, federal officials announced yesterday.

The HHS is giving states $ 350 million to prepare for the distribution of a new vaccine for the H1N1 virus.

"We want to make sure we are not promoting panic, but we are promoting vigilance and preparation," President Obama told more than 500 state and local health officials gatherws for a flu summit in Washington. The president phoned in his remarks from the G-8 summit in Italy.

No decision has been made about which vaccine would be available, but health officials said they were bracing for a rush of patients- many of them young children, who are particularly vulnerable to this new strain of flu.

"We will be seeking partnerships with schools, potentially, and other vaccination sites," said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

At least 1 million people have been infected with swine flu in the UnitedStates. Though most cases have been mild, 170 people have died.

In New York, officials said 47 people have been killed by the virus, nine more than previously known.

A strain of swine flu resistant to the antiviral drug Tamiflu has been detected in three regions around the world, raising concerns the strain is developing immunity to the medication.

It is estimated 2 billion people could eventually be infected.

Anonymous,

First of all, the 'claim' 1 million have come down with swine flu is NOT accurate. YES, EVEN THOUGH THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA KEEPS SAYING SUCH, DOES NOT MAKE IT SO. The flu strain that has hit the U.S. is NOT swine flu. Hospitals have NOT been testing flu patients for 'swine flu'.

This FACT, a.) puts the entire mass vaccine issue under 'extreme' scrutiny.

SECOND:
Before a flu vaccine has any chance of working it must be calculated a head of time the RECOMBINATION (this 'HYBRID' virus combining with seasonal flu creating a new virus) factor.

Most virologists agree that this current virus HAS NOT BEEN PROPERLY IDENTIFIED and therefor a proper vaccine CAN IN NO WAY BE READY by fall.

THIRD:
With the fact that this current 'HYBRID' flu virus has been MISLABELED automatically makes the 'so-called' swine flu shots scheduled this fall a MASS EXPERIMENT at best, and therefor falls under the Nuremberg Code.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_code

Last, but certainly NOT least:

The World Health Organization / CDC, pharmaceutical companies Baxter and NOVAX are all in litigation over this hybrid flu / mass vaccine nonsense and more lawsuits are being filed. The same media that's hyping the SO CALLED swine flu is of course MUM. Maybe they don't have time to cover it because they need the time to run drug ads instead?

Instead of being a 'good sheep' YOU can and SHOULD file a suit locally.

Hi,

I am really glad I found you organization. I first came interested in vaccine when I read this article : http://www.torontosun.com/news/canada/2009/02/27/8560781.html

Like most of us, I have been following the developments of the Swine flu. Last week, I realized that there will be a massive vaccine campaign where I live, in Sweden: http://www.thehamsterwheelanalysis.com/2009/07/massive-vaccination-campaign-in.html

After some researching over the Internet, I discoreved a woman named ane Burgermeister http://birdflu666.wordpress.com/

I would like to know if that woman is "real" and if you have heard of what she has been doing lately, such as filing criminal charges against WHO, UN and Baxter.
