New seasonal flu vaccine to contain H1N1 strain
Feb. 19, 2010
The composition, announced after a four-day meeting of experts, means H1N1 swine flu vaccine still held by drugmakers in bulk form may be used for part of the seasonal flu vaccine mix for autumn/winter 2010/2011, WHO's flu expert Keiji Fukuda said.
Some countries, including Germany, France and the United States, cut back their orders of the H1N1 flu jab after people were slow to take them up. The fact that people needed only one dose, not two, also contributed to oversupply.
800,000 Doses of Kids' H1N1 Vaccine Recalled
Dec. 15, 2009
Health officials are recalling hundreds of thousands of doses of swine flu vaccine after tests indicated they may not be potent enough to protect against the virus.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified doctors about the recall Tuesday. The recall involves about 800,000 doses made by Sanofi Pasteur. The doses are pre-filled syringes intended for young children, ages 6 months to almost three years.
Health officials recommend children those ages get two doses, spaced about a month apart.
Soldiers get mass swine flu shots before holidays
Dec. 14, 2009
Thousands of Army recruits in training must line up at least once more before heading home for the holidays, this time for mass inoculations by the hundreds against swine flu.
The Army's largest training camp, just outside Columbia, S.C., and other posts are hurrying to finish the shots before the year-end break. More than 40,000 soldiers in advanced and basic training across the country head home over the next two weeks in a massive troop movement known as "block leave," Army officials said.
"We have been very aggressive in trying to assure the safety of our soldiers," said Maj. Soo Hee Kim-Delio, the Army physician in charge of the inoculations at Fort Jackson. "Our basic training population is at particularly high risk."

Virginia teen athlete in wheel chair after H1N1 vaccine shot
Nov. 11, 2009
A teenage Virginia athlete is in a wheel chair now after suffering Guillain-Barre Syndrome within hours after receiving an H1N1 swine flu vaccine shot. 14-year-old Jordan McFarland developed severe headaches, muscle spasms and weakness in his legs after being injected. He will need "extensive physical therapy" to recovery, reports MSNBC. Plus, he'll need the help of a walker for four to six weeks.
Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) is the name given to anyone who exhibits a particular set of neurological symptoms including muscle weakness and muscle spasms. GBS is now increasingly occurring following H1N1 vaccine injections. It was diagnosed in thousands of patients following the 1976 swine flu vaccine scare, and it appears to be recurring here in 2009 as the swine flu vaccine makes it into more widespread distribution.
Obama Administration Launches Deceptive Swine Flu Propaganda Blitz
Oct. 29, 2009
President Obama and his top health officials are engaging in a major public relations effort to divert attention away from whether its swine flu vaccine is effective and safe – to whether there is enough of it to go around. And the media, as always, is cooperating fully. This echoes the way media debate was manipulated during the Vietnam and Iraq Wars. Instead of debating whether we should even be fighting those wars, the media debated only whether we were using the correct military strategy.
Increasing numbers of scientists and doctors are issuing harsh criticisms of the Government’s plan to vaccinate (forcibly if necessary) virtually the entire U.S. population with what they claim is a poorly tested vaccine that is not only ineffective against swine flu, but could cripple and even kill many more people than it helps.

State ends flu shot mandate
Oct. 23, 2009
Citing a shortage of the vaccine, the state Department of Health has ended a mandate that most of the state's health care workers be inoculated against the flu.
Gov. David Paterson attributed Thursday's decision to limited supplies of the H1N1 vaccinations, a number of doses far short of the federal government's expected delivery. The decision also tosses out mandated seasonal flu shots.
"Over the last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledged that New York would only receive approximately 23 percent of its anticipated vaccine supply by the end of the month," Paterson said in a prepared statement. "As a result, we need to be as resourceful as we can with the limited supplies of vaccine currently coming into the state and make sure that those who are at the highest risk for complications from the H1N1 flu receive the first vaccine being distributed right now in New York state."
Woman Suffers Severe Reaction To H1N1 Mist
Oct. 21, 2009
An Oregon woman said she suffered a severe reaction to the H1N1 flu mist vaccine and required a five-day stint in the hospital to recover.
Trista McGarity said Tuesday that her airflow was cut off just minutes after receiving the mist at a free clinic. She said she experienced "severe anaphylactic shock."
"My chest got really tight," she said. "I felt like I couldn't breath."
Some parents still skeptical of H1N1 vaccine
Oct. 21, 2009
The new flu outbreak shutting down schools across West Michigan is hitting the region hard. One of the reasons behind its ferocity is that it arrived before the vaccine showed up at local health departments, and now the people who make the vaccines are scrambling to catch up.
“Vaccine production is unpredictable,” said Dr. Anne Schuchat of the Centers for Disease Control. “We're projecting as far ahead as we can, by November, we're expecting by November there will be a lot of doses and more will be coming out each month.”
Health departments around West Michigan have seen very long lines, but most of those have been people lining up to get a seasonal flu shot. Despite the rapid spread of the H1N1 virus, many people are still wary of the vaccine and don't plan to get it.
