Protection Against 2009 H1N1 To Be Included in 2010-2011 Seasonal Flu Vaccine
Flu.gov ^ | February 22, 2010

Posted on 02/24/2010 6:59:10 AM PST by metmom

A key U.S. Food and Drug Administration Advisory Committee recommended today that protection against the 2009 H1N1 virus, which was first identified last April, be included in the 2010-2011 seasonal influenza vaccine starting this fall. That means that, barring some unforeseen circumstance, this fall, most Americans will be able to return to the traditional routine of having one flu vaccine to protect them against the major circulating flu viruses. As is always the case with seasonal vaccine, younger children who have never had a seasonal vaccine will still need two doses.

If you don’t mind the loss of your freedom to make your own health care decisions, fine.

What’s wrong with those who object? Why the need to mock or ridicule them?

You were saying ...

It has nothing to do with the ‘administration.’ Just listen to your doctor. You’re going to reject everything approved by the FDA for the next few years just because a democrat is in charge? Come on.

Well, I think they've been talking to "Walter" ... :-)




I just saw where they put the H1N1 virus!

Some people get way to carried away with the idea of forcing such things as vaccinations on other people. I dont know what bothers me more, their attitudes or the vaccinations.

I do know that there can be serious problems with the vaccinations and it should be a personal issue, if a person declines it then another person should not try to force it on them with whatever means they have.

Anyway I know of at least one person who has such attitudes and beliefs and I wondered if her beliefs had anything to do with the horrible Autoimmune Disorders that her son suffered from as a teenager and young adult. So I started doing some searching and came up with a whole plethora of information on vaccination-triggered autoimmune disorders and Autoimmune Diseases linked to vaccination.

I have not got a flu shot in over 10 years and I dont miss them at all. My problem is with those people who think it is their crusade to make other people get the flu shots.

The immune system needs to work and getting a vaccine is not exactly the same thing as getting the disease.

I worry about the *I’m from the government and I’m here to help* mentality.

Please....

I know life has risks, but let ME be the one to decide which ones to take.

You’re clearly not alone.

They’re going to find this backfiring, I believe.

I would think this only makes it more economical.

That doesn't mean it necessarily makes good medical sense.

When someone finds a way to repeal the Law of Unintended Consequences, then I'll be first in line for everything that comes down the pike :)

This H1N1 issue has been a farce from the very beginning. First, the never-ending hype, then the unavailability when the vaccine was needed, then the hype when the vaccine wasn’t needed, and now the manipulation of the vaccine for next year. How much is all of this costing us?

The linkage of vaccines to neurological disorders comes through the promotion of an auto-immune process, triggered by the virus present in the vaccine

The more that Oblamebush tries to shove big government down our throats, the more the people rebel. You know, in the long run the election of Obutthead will turn out to be good for America for the fact that the people finally awoke from their slumber and saw how close the socialists were to destroying the country.

Works for me! LOL!

The bastard socialist 0bamunists politicize everything they touch or control. I wouldn't listen to or believe a single thing that comes from the propaganda of these socialist bastards or any federal gubmint agency at this time. 35,000 people die every year from regular flu compared to a tiny sub-fraction of swine flu fatalities, and yet the politically correct thing for the gubmint (and the hi-tech corporation I work for) is to refer to this in dire, apocalyptic terms as a "pandemic"!

My corporation just announced that everyone will now get a free H1N1 swine flu shot which they are now giving in the cafeteria. Oooooo sounds scary! Baloney! I blew that so-called "freebie" off!

"The common flu claimed a LOT more victims than may have attributed to H1N1...."

In OLDER people, sure - at least according to the CDC, which reports on such statistics here.

But, the H1N1 killed more people aged 18-64 than the seasonal flu ever does in that same age group. It also claimed the lives of babies and adolescents at a much greater rate than the normal seasonal flue. See:CDC Estimates of 2009 H1N1 Influenza Cases, Hospitalizations and Deaths in the United States, April – December 12, 2009, where it details that an estimated 8,260 people aging from 18-64. It was a pandemic. There's just no other way to describe it.

ummm it’s just another flu virus that we can be vaccinated against. If your doctor feels you are at risk for the flu, you should be protected from as many viruses as possible. I once got the flu, ended up with pneumonia and ended up in the hospital and I’m not very young or old.
Not everything is about politics. Just because the liberals had Bush derangement syndrome (BDS) for 8 years doesn’t mean you should have ODS for 4.

My Mom, who is a healthcare worker, was told by her doctor to not take the H1N1 vaccine due to past incidences. Her employer made it MANDITORY to take this vaccine.

She came down with the flu within 24 hours.

Oh, ok - so no flu shot at all this year...

That would make 2 years in a row. Because Sibelius and company have put all their eggs in the H1N1 basket, I can't even find a "regular" flu vaccine now.

All jesting aside, I have read some articles that raise significant concerns over the H1N1 vaccine. The risks associated with this I believe far outnumber the questionable benefits of it.

Secondly (and back on the ODS syndrome, but moreso the totalitarian, socialist, one-world, cultish type mentality) I am always amazed at how everything that emanates from the marxist-liberal-socialist agenda always has the aura of pending apocalyptic disaster if something isn't done RIGHT NOW!!! As I said before, Ooooooo scary!!! From the population bomb (late 60's & 70's), the coming ice age (70's), every eonomic crisis & disaster ONLY when Republicans are in charge or when the demoRATs want to pass another socialist takeover, the global warming scam (2000's), etc, etc, etc. Socialism cannot exist without a pending crisis somewhere, somehow, and personally I believe this includes the H1N1 hoax. So I won't criticize (at least openly) someone for taking it, and you don't criticize me when I think it is tailor made for 0bozo socialism & the rush of similar stupid corporations (like mine that I work for) to hop on the politically correct train and take "somber" steps to head off the "pandemic" hoax.

And BTW, I'm 56 with an open heart mitrol valve repair and now a pacemaker as well. I won't put any more crap into my system that is endorsed by the commie pig 0bozo administration.

Her employer made it MANDATORY to take this vaccine.

Her employer cannot legally force an employee to have something injected into their body. Not sure what all the situation is, but she did not have to do this and should have stood her ground. The employer would have had to back down. Do you think that this same employer would have the gall to require MUSLIM employees to take a swine (pig) flu vaccine? If they even thought about such a thing, CAIR would have turned that into a propaganda hysteria of discrimination against muzzzlims.

Now they're trying to force the H1N1 vaccine on people by combining it with the regular flu shot.

Which would have been done in 2009 had the H1N1 virus showed up even a month or two earlier than it did.

Vaccines aren't the danger. Disease is.

Interesting how they will be sure to sell this vaccine.

Another way to kill off a few of the old and sick, who cannot have the new flu shot, but had been taking the regular type.

She took it under the *presumed* threat of losing her employment. She works for a private company that operates nursing homes.

But that's not all. Not only do you think that the president of the United States wants to kill you, you also think the inclusion of H1N1 in the upcoming seasonal flu vaccine is the way that the president of the United States is attempting to kill you.

Like I said, you have a very strange perception of the world.

People with emphysema cannot have the H1N1 flu shot, it is a flu of the lungs, the gov and doctors advised against it in the beginning of the scare.

Obama does not believe in medical treatment for seniors and he has already cut our social security.

So yes, I have a fearful future with him as president.

Yeah, we all have a fearful future with him as president. But it's the specifics of your fear which I find so interesting: That the H1N1 vaccine being put into the seasonal flu shot is a government plot to kill you. Really, I find this so fascinating it's worth repeating over and over.
