I believe it was a trial run. TPTB have much worse in store for us than a plain old flu. Stay away fro vaccinations if you can, the more you get the more your immune system is being attacked. I believe the pandemic will come in stages, the vaccines will change to destroy more of our immunity with each jab.
Guess life is like a mushroom, they feed you bull and keep you in the dark!!
"The shots, made by Sanofi Pasteur, were distributed across the country last month and most have already been used, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The 800,000 pre-filled syringes that were recalled are for young children, ages 6 months to nearly 3 years."
In reply to your original post Blueangel, the pandemic never really got a foothold. I am not totally sure who 'they' are to which you refer, but in the UK as per usual the media went apepoop over this and said we were all gonna die...now if you so happened to be an idiot, of which I personally know many, then I suppose you went along with this.
Or if like myself you thought you'd stay clear of mass media hype because as per usual, it is grossly exaggerated . Instead relying on my own brain to read up on the topic and were possible consult the more upstanding newspapers and to read lots to get a more rounded picture.
At which point I came to common sense conclusion that this would be no worse than a typical common flu that kills off so many tens of thousands a year in the UK, and guess what, I was right.
When you say that you don't know who the "THEY" are that I refer to in my last post, are you referencing my comment wherein I say that "it ain't me; it's them?"
In this respect, I am referring to the fact that the CDC informed us that those who would be most afffected by the Swine Flu would be people who were in their 20's and those who have underlying health conditions, but the vaccinations were also given to infants; three year olds, elementary school children, etc.
So, I'm saying "it ain't me who isn't understanding what they say.
I'm saying, "it's THEM," the CDC and all other health organizations; politicians, etc., because of the misinformtion they spread in order to cause mass fear so the people will follow their suggestions without thinking for themselves.
How may congress people received the H1N1 vaccination?
I not sure who the CDC are but again here in the UK, the mass media told the truth in places, it was a matter of using intellect to simply consider the facts themselves, rather than listen to assumptions, speculations or extrapolations.
If people were stupid enough get a vaccine based purely on mass media hype then more fool them!
