Concerns about the live virus infecting even those not receiving the vaccine through the nasal spray form, have resulted in some hospitals in Mississippi and other states passing up the government’s offer for the swine flu nasal spray vaccine for health care workers.
Mercury is a toxin linked to autism and neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimers disease. Thimerosal is commonly used in vaccinations and immunizations as a preservative.
While both the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Institute of Medicine are denying the correlation between the use of thimerosal having any causal relationship between immunizations and increased cases of autism, Epidemiologist Tom Verstraeten and Dr. Richard Johnston, an immunologist and pediatrician from the University of Colorado, both concluded that thimerosal was responsible for the dramatic rise in cases of autism but their findings have been dismissed by the CDC.
Studies have shown that the incidence of autism has risen by 1500% since 1991, the year when mandatory vaccines for children doubled. Prior to 1991, only 1 in every 2500 children was diagnosed with autism. That number is now 1 in every 166 children.
Studies about the effects of mercury in the system have been ongoing for more than a quarter of a century. As early as 1977, a study was done in Russia which found that adults exposed to ethylmercury, the form of mercury in thimerosal, suffered brain damage years later.
Studies on thimerosal poisoning also describe tubular necrosis and nervous system injury, including obtundation, coma and death. As a result of these findings, Russia banned thimerosal from children's vaccines in 1980. Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have also banned the preservative.
According to an article in the Washington Post in July 2009, “Despite concerns about thimerosal and mercury, which have led to the preservative being reduced or removed from a large portion of vaccines over the last five years, thimerosal will be an ingredient of the H1N1 vaccine.
"Some of the vaccine will be stored in multi-dose vials containing thimerosal, an antibacterial additive that contains mercury."
"There will also be single-dose syringes without thimerosal, however, it is still not confirmed if consumers will get a choice or even be informed if the vaccine they are being offered contains mercury.
According to an article reported by AP earlier in July, "Vaccine makers and federal officials will be immune from lawsuits that result from any new swine flu vaccine, under a document signed by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius," because the government has already acted to provide them with blanket immunity from lawsuits.
The inserts to the H1N1 vaccines all state that it could cause all manner of adverse effects, including guillain-barre syndrome, vasculitis, anaphylactic shock and even death.
Why would the drug companies put that in the insert to the vaccine itself if it was a “myth”?
The government has created an extensive tracking system to watch and record side effects of the H1N1 vaccine.
Remember, with the Swine flu reaching pandemic levels as quickly as it did, the production of the Swine flu vaccine has been fast tracked, which has not allowed for the type of FDA testing usually associated with the release of new medications.
