Chile detected the H1N1 swine flu virus in turkeys, authorities said on Thursday, the first time the virus has been found outside humans or pigs.

Chile's farming and livestock agency SAG said the flu outbreak had been controlled at the two farms 75 miles (120 km) west of the capital Santiago.

Waitaminnit... when this first came on the scene the scientists were saying it looked like it was part duck or goose flu. And now it’s a surprise that it’s being found in fowl?

Quite possibly.

I would bet there are already plans for forced vaccinations.

There are. There was an article posted here where they are considering mandatory vaccinations in schools. I remember those back when I was a kid. We were marched into the gym, and one by one, were vaccinated against something. Can’t remember what it was. Probably around 1975-76.

It’s part avian. They call it swine flu but it’s a mix of human, swine, and avian strains.

Have any of you seen this before:

It is an April ‘2008’ warning by a research company regarding a potential future H1N1 pandemic.

I believe that maybe correct. Or at least some had serious life changing side effects which I don’t remember the details of.

But that certainly rings a bell for me.

Here ya go! A quick reference:

This whole swine flu thing is nothing new. You may know this by now but in 1976 there was a swine flu scare with similar fiasco-status. It all started on February 5, 1976 when a Fort Dix recruit fell ill. He died the next day. In short time, hundreds of his fellow armed service members had the disease. The bad stuff hit the fan at that point. Two weeks later, Gerald Ford rushed through a plan to immunize every American. Pandemonium broke out across the country.

Looks like my forced school vaccine was indeed this one. I remember all the kids crying because the shot was in the shoulder. Some kids got scars. Not me. Didn't cry either. I was more pissed than anything.

Ping 4 you DVDMom

NotSoModerate: Honestly, I still like the term “Chimera Flu” because that really sums it up — last I read there were something like 7-8 virus markers in this thing (that was probably back in May when I read that — several “pig” flus, an avian flu, and human flu).

It was probably the first swine flu vaccination... That was in 1976 from what I’ve read (I was only four y.o.).

When a health emergency is viewed as a political opportunity for a power-hungry administration, I’m more concerned about the administration and its remedies than the flu.

If the turkey is thoroughly cooked, there will be no problem with the flu.

Probably polio, but by those dates the vaccine was on the sugar cube, if it was even given then.

I remember the sugar cubes. Parents did have to give permission first.
