Human Guinea Pigs Wanted for Deadly Swine Flu Vaccine

Govt Calls for Volunteers to Test Swine Flu Shot

H1N1 vaccine testing happening in Rochester

Thousands of people across the country have dealt with the H1N1 virus. What you might not know is part of the search for a swine flu vaccine is happening right here in Rochester.

Medical researchers at Rochester Clinical Research are testing new vaccines. They say they are talking with several major pharmaceutical companies that eventually want to distribute the product and stop the swine flu outbreak.

Even though the initial scare has passed, health officials say the H1N1 pandemic is far from over.

“All the experts are telling us it’s going to get worse before it gets better,” says Michael Brennan, a nurse practitioner and sub-investigator with R.C.R. “We haven’t seen the last of this yet. The best defense we can have is a safe and effective vaccine.” Full Story and Video

Legal immunity set for swine flu vaccine makers

The last time the government embarked on a major vaccine campaign against a new swine flu, thousands filed claims contending they suffered side effects from the shots. This time, the government has already taken steps to head that off.

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, government health officials said Friday.

Since the 1980s, the government has protected vaccine makers against lawsuits over the use of childhood vaccines. Instead, a federal court handles claims and decides who will be paid from a special fund.

The document signed by Sebelius last month grants immunity to those making a swine flu vaccine, under the provisions of a 2006 law for public health emergencies. It allows for a compensation fund, if needed.

Immunity encourages vaccine-makers

The government takes such steps to encourage drug companies to make vaccines, and it’s worked. Federal officials have contracted with five manufacturers to make a swine flu vaccine. First identified in April, swine flu has so far caused at least 263 deaths, according to numbers released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday. Full Story

Flu Bioterrorism – Vaccine Deaths

Flu Bioterrorism – Vaccine Deaths

Interview: Science journalist files suit alleging H1N1 ‘swine flu’ a hoax to sell vaccines

Jane Burgermeister, an Austrian science journalist and investigative reporter has filed criminal charges with the FBI against the World Health Organization, the United Nations, and high ranking U.S. officials and business executives. She alleges that officials conspired to use a virus – the H1N1 “swine flu” – that was engineered in a lab to create a flu pandemic in order to sell vaccines.

She calls it an act of bioterrorism.

Her accusations are extremely bold, yet carefully researched and documented and rely on evidence from published scientific research, legal actions, and interviews with prominent scientists. What Burgermeister has done is connect the dots, but has she come to the right conclusion?

The U.S. government has classified the bird flu and swine flu vaccines as bioweapons which would appear to some as incriminating, given the circumstances and the long strange tale of how vaccines become weapons.

One of the key points of Burgermeister’s suit is that the new strain of flu is a synthetic structural recombinant containing genes from birds, humans, and pigs from different continents. Burgermeister said it’s reasonable to assume it came out of a laboratory, specifically a bioweapons laboratory. “Mother Nature does not naturally recombine bird, swine and three human influenza viruses,” asserts Burgermeister. Further, some respected scientists who examined H1N1 say the virus contains strains of the 1918 Spanish Pandemic flu. That flu strain was reassembled by molecular pathologists at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, D.C. and distributed to other agencies, the WHO and pharmaceutical companies around the world.

Homeless people die after bird flu vaccine trial in Poland
Three Polish doctors and six nurses are facing criminal prosecution after a number of homeless people died following medical trials for a vaccine to the H5N1 bird-flu virus

The director of a Grudziadz homeless centre, Mieczyslaw Waclawski, told a Polish newspaper that last year, 21 people from his centre died, a figure well above the average of about eight.

Although authorities have yet to prove a direct link between the deaths and the activities of the medical staff, Poland’s health minister, Ewa Kopacz, has said that the doctors and nurses involved should not return to their profession.

“It is in the interests of all doctors that those who are responsible for this are punished,” the minister added.

Investigators are also probing the possibility that the medical staff may have also have deceived the pharmaceutical companies that commissioned the trials.

The suspects said that the all those involved knew that the trial involved an anti-H5N1 drug and willingly participated.

The news of the investigation will come as another blow to the reputation of Poland’s beleaguered and poverty-stricken national health service. In 2002, a number of ambulance medics were found guilty of killing their patients for commissions from funeral companies.

The medical staff, from the northern town of Grudziadz, are being investigated over medical trials on as many as 350 homeless and poor people last year, which prosecutors say involved an untried vaccine to the highly-contagious virus.

Authorities claim that the alleged victims received £1-2 to be tested with what they thought was a conventional flu vaccine but, according to investigators, was actually an anti bird-flu drug.
