Not A Good Year to Get The Flu Shot
– Dr Tim O’Shea
author of Vaccination Is Not Immunization
For those of you who followed the swine flu vaccine hoax of 2009 very carefully through to its demise this past year, there were some important lessons.
Inconsistency followed indiscretion in the media steamroller that tried to shove this imaginary threat through the skin of the American people in the past 2 years. And will all that is said about the dumbing down of Americans, etc., we still resist being oversold on anything. We were simply oversold on the threat of swine flu and the necessity for the vaccine. And so Americans rejected the H1N1 vaccine, with the exception of a few thousand ignorants who would probably inject Drano if the CDC told them they needed it.
A few of the things that didn’t add up in the public mind:
- the threat of swine flu was never proven real
- no single causative virus was ever identified
- there was no screening test to identify cases; no lab tests, no culturing
- figures were irresponsibly conjured up
- the spokesmen for FDA, CDC, NIH, and WHO all made hysterical predictions for over a year, none of which ever came true
- clinical trials only lasted 5 weeks before the vaccine was approved and licensed, when testing for any new vaccine takes at least a year
- unlimited amounts of mercury were allowed in the new vaccine
- cases were diagnosed on the telephone
- cases of regular flu were artificially re-categorized for the obvious purpose of marketing an untested vaccine
- the last ditch effort in the summer of 2010 to sell the vaccine out of every drugstore in the US was too shrill to be credible
- the economic entanglements between the regulators and the vaccine companies became public knowledge
All these facts are chronicled and referenced in detail in the 4 chapters on swine flu that appear at www.thedoctorwithin.com And though most people don’t have all these details at their fingertips, still the public got the general impression that the vaccine was at least unnecessary, if not outright dangerous, despite the unrelenting media hysteria that lasted the better part of 2 years. And so they declined.
Then on 2 July 2010 the New York Daily News reported an unprecedented event, on page A8. For the first time in memory, stockpiles of unused H1N1 vaccine were being returned and burned. Why this is notable is that even though batches of vaccine, known as lots, do have expiration dates, in actual practice they are virtually never thrown out, but stored and stockpiled indefinitely. The marketplace claim is that a similar microbial threat may occur in the future, for which the vaccine can be trotted back out, tweaked a little, and then given rubber stamp re-approval for use into the general population, even though it has been sitting on the shelf for decades.
There are many examples of this, the most famous one in recent years certainly being the post 9/11 smallpox vaccine hoax. At that time 3 vaccine manufacturers were given contracts to produce millions of doses of smallpox vaccine, you may remember, to protect the American public from the imaginary bioterrorist threat. They were under the gun, since the threat was ‘imminent.’ Serendipitously, one of the companies – Aventis – suddenly discovered 90 million ‘lost’ doses of smallpox vaccine which had been stockpiled for 30 years, sitting there in their freezers. “Testing” took place and it was soon asserted that the old vaccine was ‘still good’ and the FDA approved the entire lot for use as smallpox vaccine for the American population. This story is told in detail in the chapter “Smallpox: Bringing a Dead Disease Back To Life” .
So back to July 2010 – why was this particular unused H1N1 vaccine being burned instead of stored? Very suspicious.
