There have been many strange happenings with the pharmaceutical companies around these vaccines all of which seem to increase their stock value. I have yet to see that Baxter has faced any consequence of any note to do with their many 'accidents' and their role in the spread of the current swine/avian flu. How is it possible to contaminate 72 kilograms of the world’s deadliest bioweapon and send it by accident from a high biosecurity facilities, not irradiated and under a false label? The only person to have done anything about it is Jane Burgermeister and she has been sacked from her job for doing so.

I just saw a reference to a video about this and her two days ago on facebook, just now I searched throught the homepage scrolling down to find this vid. I found two postings of it and when I hit the share button to put it on my page the whole thing just disappeared, BOTH posts of this vid. I have decided that facebook is a black op. I have seen this happen too many times, important stories being removed while the rantings of AJ Weberman trashing assassination researchers remain intact. I will continue to moniter this. I had thought I saw that this woman may be a judge but not having seen the vid....pisses me off...can't go back and try again as I am in court all day ...but the gist was that she is suing the FBI...

In the UK NHS and government stockpiles of Tamiflu are nearing their expiry date. Get those prescriptions filled now!

Oh! Dear, Oh! Dear.

The government is pushing Tamiflu hard. Because it has nothing else to offer for swine flu. I am sure that is true, but there is another and much funnier reason. The Jobbing Doctor gets the inside story from a chance meeting with a colleague:

He then told me why the Government were very keen for us to prescribe it to everyone who has a sniffle and a high temperature: you see, most of the stockpiled Tamiflu was for a previous flu scare, and it expires (passes its sell-by date) in the early part of this Autumn (2009) when it effectively and officially becomes useless (as opposed to being pretty useless anyway).

A couple of interesting responses to the Jobbing Doctor's story above:

It's good for up to two years after its sell by date. Are you going to discuss the vaccine rushed in to deal with a flu that is relatively mild.

Baxter are collaborting with Glaxo to produce the vaccine. In the early part of this year, Baxter sent out a vaccine to its facility in Austria. The vaccine was sent to several countries including the Czech Rep where it was tested on ferrets. The ferrets died and it was later discovered that the vaccine contained two live flu viruses. The contamination from Baxter's level 3 facility in the US was no accident. This incident was not reported outside of the countries involved and a small report appeared on a canadian newspaper website.

On the BBC website a concerned medic from Mexico reported that staff at a hospital dealing with the H1N1 virus died after being injected with a vaccine.

How safe will the vaccine be?

The comment on Swine flu vaccine from Anonymous 09:36 is interesting. The last time there was mass vaccination with a rapidly produced H1N1 vaccine, back in 1977, the results were not too good for the population as a whole:

"The emergence of swine influenza at Fort Dix led to the implementation of a mass vaccination program, which resulted in 40 million civilian vaccinations and 532 cases of the Guillain–Barré syndrome (a rare side effect of influenza vaccination), including 32 deaths ". This from the New England Journal of Medicine & not the Daily Mail.
http://content.nejm.org/cgi/content/full/NEJMra0904322v1) For the original paper see Marks JS, Halpin TJ. Guillain-Barré syndrome in recipients of A/New Jersey influenza vaccine. JAMA 1980;243:2490-2494. It is free on line.

Make up your own mind about risk and benefit of the new vaccine, but make sure you base your advice to patients on reliable data.
