Turkeys have been confirmed to have H1N1 (first non-pig/non-human infection)
Reuters ^

Posted on 08/20/2009 8:55:33 PM PDT by IDRATHERNOT

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.

I’ve been corrected. It was a flu vaccine. I was out of high school then (but in college). I just don’t recall the mandantory shots.

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.

One's a relatively minor respiratory complaint.

The other is a malignant fulminating cancer.

I’m beginning to remember. It was delivered via gun and an “air puff” into the skin, right?

I haven’t thought about that in years, like, since 1976.

If the virus is infecting turkeys, Obama will probably catch it. For he is the biggest turkey of all.

Im no doctor but wouldn’t logic dictate that once it jumps from Human to “turkey” the strain name would change. Now it effects a human and 2 animals, rather then 1 human and 1 animal. It had to morph in some fashion, thus its no longer H1N1. Perhaps the viri morphed and only attacks turkeys and cant jump from turkey to human, or pig for that matter. Just food for thought...

I recall kids going to the gym in 1963 to get some kind of shots. Many returned with blood running down their arms. I didn't join that circus. My dad was in the Navy and we got all the shots we needed at the Navy dispensary. A few more than most kids do to the associated travel.

H1N1 describes the cell interaction characteristics. The ‘H’ helps the virus bind to cells before infection (hemagglutinin). The ‘N’ helps the virus release from the cell (neuraminidase). The species infected makes no difference as these (glycoproteins) remain the same. The H5N1 for instance has a different H configuration which is why it isn’t spread as readily in humans. The initial binding of the virus is less compatible.

Just call it lab made and forced vaccinations (in sets of three), this fall.

After it was... not so important to close the border, yet a pandemic before.

1963 might have been the Schick Test for TB. I got that back in 58/59 in HS and again in 1963 in boot camp.

The Schick test is for diphtheria. The Mantoux test is the skin test for TB.

According to this, it was used for TB also. At the time we were told it was for TB. I never realized it was for diphtheria as well. Thanx

The more I read on this, the more confused I’m getting.
The test I got in HS and again in boot camp might well have been mis-named the Shick test. It consisted of a drop of fluid on the skin followed be a device which produced several (6?) pin pricks that just broke the skin. In HS I got it on the fore arm and in boot camp on the upper arm near my small pox vaccination mark.

I also remember in boot camp getting several injections just below the skin as in the Mantoux test.

Like I said, I’m getting confused as to which was which. Perhaps more coffee will help.

What you are describing is the classic Tine test for TB, not the Schick test. The Mantoux test, which is a single intradermal injection not a series of pricks, replaced the Tine test in the early 60’s and is still the gold standard for detecting prior or occult TB infection.

It was a loooong time ago and the gray matter ain’t what it used to be. I can’t say as I’d ever heard of the Tine test.
The other FReeper had mentioned blood running down the arms of some of his classmates reminded me that the same thing happened to me when I got the multiple prick (Tine) teast in HS. (though that didn’t happen with the multiple prick test I got in boot camp)
In boot camp we got a Tine test, several injections with the gun and 2 or 3 intradermal injections at the same time. It was like an assembly line. We called it the “Flying Seven”

Is this virus ‘wind’ driven? Meaning how were these turkeys exposed in the first place? From people or pigs? Or both?

Why force vaccinations? Death seems like a perfect way to get health care costs down.

Swine flu attacks the young, and the Dems want them paying taxes for 40+ years before they croak.

When I started grad school to work on a masters in pathogenic bacteriology, the head of the department insisted on screening everyone for TB and coccidiomycosis. My TB skin test faded away as usual. The coccidiomycosis stick nearly wrapped around my arm. A chest x-ray revealed the characteristic amorphous calcification patterns in my lungs. It's fairly common for off road motorcyclists in southern California. There was a spike in cases in southern California after the earthquakes raised lots of dust.

Much of the ‘control’ issues put into place around the world have involved large scale culling of domestic animals (H5N1). It gives the virus less of a reservoir and mitigates further spreading. This variation of H1N1 is part avian so it can be spread by wild birds. They’ll probably never know how the turkeys got it. Wild birds would be the best guess.

You might be off-the-mark on this one. Looks like it is going to be Sen. Kennedy’s death that they are going to use rather than the H1N1 scare-mongering.
