With 60 per cent of the U.S. population at risk, is swine flu nasal spray apandemic waiting to happen?Paul Joseph WatsonPrison Planet.com Tuesday, October 6, 2009Doctors and hospitals are expressing concern that the FluMist vaccinecould endanger people because it contains live H1N1 virus, unlike theinjectable shot that contains antibodies. With no less than 60 per cent of the U.S. population immunodeficient in one way or another, could FluMistbe a pandemic waiting to happen?Hospitals in Colorado and elsewhere are shunning the FluMist H1N1vaccine, a nasal spray that contains live swine flu virus, because of fears itcould infect people with weakened immune systems and underlyinghealth conditions.“Several metro area hospitals said they won’t be taking the FluMistbecause they don’t want to endanger patients,”reports TheDenverChannel.com.Lois VanFleet, infection prevention specialist at Exempla Good SamaritanMedical Center in Lafayette, expressed concern that doctors and nurseswho inhaled the live virus could infect patients whose immune systemsare compromised.However, H1N1 FluMist is being rolled out nationwide from this week,including at “drive-through clinics” across the country where the nasalspray is administered while people sit in their cars with their window wideopen (see top picture). The live virus contained in the nasal spray is weakened but it can betransmitted from person to person for up to three weeks.According to studies, “the odds of transmitting the virus after receivingthe nasal spray are about 2.5 percent,” with children the mostsusceptible. The nasal spray is being rolled out on a mass scale
the widespreadintroduction of the injectable vaccine. Some fear that the nasal spray willcontribute to a wider pandemic, which will then provide governments withthe crisis they need to make the injectable vaccine mandatory.
“This would accelerate the move to a state of emergency, cripple the UShealth care system, and would result in the “need” to have military,eventually UN troops, take control,” notes TheFluCase.com.“Also, all public assemblies, including courts, would be prohibited, therebysatisfying a condition for the imposition of martial law, mass quarantines,and forced vaccinations for the rest of us.”According to the Mayo Clinic, the swine flu scandal of 1976, when morepeople died from the vaccine than the actual virus, was what caused thelive virus to be removed from future vaccines. However, it is admitted thatFluMist contains the live virus.“It has been documented that the live viruses from the vaccine can beshed (and potentially spread into the community) from recipient childrenfor up to 21 days, and even longer from adults. Viral shedding also putsbreastfeeding infants at risk if the mother has been given FluMist,” writesDr. Sherri Tenpenny, one of the most outspoken physicians in the countryon the hazards of vaccines and vaccination.FluMist’s own package insert reads as follows, “FluMist® recipients shouldavoid close contact with immunocompromised individuals for at least 21days.”“The warning is specifically directed toward those living in the samehousehold with an immunocompromised person, but the on-going releaseof live viruses throughout the community may be a significant risk toeveryone who has a weak, or weakened, immune system,” writes Tenpenny, pointing out that if one takes into account a plethora of healthconditions that could be classified as contributing to immunodeficiency, asmuch as 60% of the entire population could be considered to be“chemically immunosuppressed.”“An ever greater concern about FluMist is the contents within the vaccine.Each 0.5ml of the formula contains 10 6.5-7.5 particles of live, attenuatedinfluenza virus. That means that between 10 million and 100 million viralparticles will be forcefully injected into the nostrils when administered. The viral strain was developed by serial passage through “specificpathogen-free primary chick kidney cells” and then grown in “specificpathogen-free eggs.” That means that the culture media was free of pathogens that were specifically tested for, but not a culture that wasnecessarily “pathogen-free.” The risk that the vaccine may containcontaminant avian retroviruses still remains,” warns Tenpenny.One of the pharmaceutical companies developing nasal spray vaccines isBaxter International, who were caught earlier this yearreleasing batchesof vaccines from a lab in Austria that were contaminatedlive bird flu virus,otherwise known as H5N1.
