THL issues updated recommendations on seasonal influenza vaccinations:


Quote:THL recommends that the two vaccines, Vaxigrip and Fluarix, reserved in the national vaccination programme for the seasonal influenza vaccinations are given to different age groups. Vaxigrip is recommended to people aged under 65 and Fluarix to people aged 65 and over.

Recent research at THL has focused on examining why the swine flu vaccine used in Canada, Arepanrix, which is similar to Pandemrix, has not been reported to have triggered narcolepsy. Preliminary research results suggest that the antigenic solution of Arepanrix is immunologically different to that of Pandemrix.

Of the seasonal influenza vaccines available in Finland this fall, the manufacturing process of Fluarix is similar to that of Pandemrix, with the exception that it does not contain any adjuvant. There is no evidence indicating that giving Fluarix to Pandemrix-vaccinated individuals could increase their risk of developing narcolepsy. Following the precautionary principle, however, THL does not recommend the administration of Fluarix to anyone under the age of 65. THL is not aware of any confirmed cases of narcolepsy associated with Pandemrix among persons aged 65 or over.

Precautionary principle indeed, and this would be the main reason:

Quote:According to the regional daily Keskisuomalainen, new legislation in the works guarantees lifelong care for patients suffering from narcolepsy as a result of receiving the Pandemrix swine flu vaccine.

The bill would entitle the narcolepsy patients to lifelong care from the state via the Pharmaceutical Injuries Insurance pool.

The daily reports that Social Affairs and Health Minister Paula Risikko as saying that government is preparing a bill that would allow the state to take on responsibility for paying compensation to the narcolepsy victims once the medical insurance pool runs out of funds to continue the payments.

Stay healthy folks.

i love the looks i get from Medical type people when I explain to them that vaccines are part of a binary depopulation program, one part in the shot and the other part to be delivered by chem trail spraying. the subject usually changes to more generic subjects after that.

chuckle.gif Most people working within the medical profession are of the opinion vaccines are a positive thing. Add the persistent contrail theory in the mix and I'm sure they want to laugh nervously and change the subject.

My young sister-in-law is a nurse. She loves meds and makes sure their little son is properly medicated. She also gets every flu shot available and comes down with bad flues every year and spreads the joy to the whole family.

Another way to get great reactions is to disclose that for Christmas I got our girl 500 rounds of 40 Cal pistol ammo a couple of years ago.

"Does Big Sis know about this?"

When I was a kid, I delivered newspapers. Reading about the cointelpro operations convinced me that everything we do is monitored, even back in the 60"s.
Cell phones and computers just make it easier.
For the longest time, if the cops want to get you they can, for anything.
