Most Britons Reject Swine Flu Vaccine

More than half of Britons being offered vaccination against pandemic H1N1 flu are turning it down because they fear side effects or think the virus is too mild to bother.

A survey of more than 100 family doctors indicated that there was widespread resistance from patients, and that on average only 46 percent of those offered the vaccination agree to have it.



Doctors reported particular difficulties in persuading pregnant women to be vaccinated against the virus.



Skepticism has been growing in Britain and other European countries about health authorities' handling of the H1N1 pandemic, because the number of people infected has been lower than originally feared.

Further, rates of infection by the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus may have peaked in late October, according to a new report by Quest Diagnostics.

As U.S. health officials struggle to vaccinate tens of millions of Americans against the pandemic of swine flu, some are now even looking regretfully at one easy way to instantly double or triple the number of doses available -- by using an immune booster called an adjuvant.

These additives broaden the body's response to a vaccine, reducing the amount of active ingredient called antigen needed. They are widely used in European flu vaccines as well as in Canada. But not in the United States -- even though the federal government has spent nearly $700 million buying them.

The reason -- people might not trust them.

Polls show that only about half of Americans plan to be vaccinated against H1N1. Of those who do not, about half say they worry about safety.

Further, The World Health Organization is looking into reports in Britain and the United States that the H1N1 flu may have developed resistance to Tamiflu in people with severely suppressed immune systems.

Britain's Health Protection Agency (HPA) said five cases have been confirmed in Wales of patients infected with H1N1 resistant to Tamiflu.

Don't have the direct links or would have posted them.

The info actually came from Dr. Mercola's web site if I remember right.

I'd like to think that the work that we do here-- if nothing else-- will prompt that many more sheeple to "get on the stick" and support the growing sentiment that only armed conflict will restore our Constitutional rights when the time comes.....

That being said....Jeff is right....peaceful resolution would be a much better alternative....but I doubt it's going to happen that way......

Let's be practical and think that what we did here may have led to some people making these decisions. I'm a little more comfortable when it's stated that way. Either way and whatever, the work we do here is valuable, especially for those of us like myself who have no method of doing anything other than posting editorial. It is, very simply, the only thing I can do towards helping humanity and it is, also very simply, not really very much.

I like to think its the work we did here that led people to this decision!

When young people today get sick in their old age, as they will surely do, they will wonder, "Why?"

Unfortunately the answer will lie in food additives, water and air pollutants and the numerous vaccines they received throughout their lives, ALL WORKING TOGETHER synergetically to produce dramatic toxic effects. It's inevitable. We're all part of a great scientific experiment on humanity. Most of us anyway.
