The real purpose for this was to ensure that the virus was widespread enough to approve new vaccines for use before any testing was able to be conducted. In fact, the WHO itself stated that Time constraints mean that clinical data at the time when pandemic vaccines are first administered will inevitably be limited. Further testing of safety and effectiveness will need to take place after administration of the vaccine has begun. GlaxoSmithKline, who is the manufacturer of the vaccines, has said on record that "Clinical trials will be limited, due to the need to provide the vaccine to governments as quickly as possible.
Additional studies will therefore be required and conducted after the vaccine is made available." This really boils down to the fact that anyone and everyone who gets the vaccine for swine flu is, by definition, a test subject. This new vaccine has been labeled a strain change rather than an entirely new one, which will require much less information on its safety to be submitted before approval. In the US, manufacturers are allowed to submit safety data as it becomes available when using the same process to make a vaccine rather than before it is released.
Vaccines are intended to build resistance and immunity to harmful organisms that cause illness and disease, but your body's immune system is already designed to do this. The difference is that your immune system will fight off any foreign objects as they enter your body through normal means such as mucous membranes. When these organisms are introduced via atypical avenues, the body's immune system will essentially switch into overdrive mode to seek and destroy the object wherever it can be found. Enter squalene, an oil molecule found naturally in the body with antioxidant properties that can normally be found through the nervous system, and brain. Squalene is being used as an adjuvant, or additive, to the swine flu vaccine so that less of the vaccine itself is required, thus allowing more individual doses to be made available. The problem therein is that once introduced in an abnormal fashion, your immune system will begin to attack all the squalene in your body, not just what is introduced via the vaccine. This raises many alarms, because there is now great potential for damage to be done to the nervous system as the naturally stored squalene is under fire. This can cause effects like many other auto-immune diseases in which the body basically begins to attack itself.
On July 29, a letter from the UKs Health Protection Agency that was intended to reach about 600 neurologists was leaked. This letter was intended to warn these doctors of a potential increase in Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which can be triggered by the swine flu vaccine. GBS is a brain disorder that often causes paralysis and inability to breath, thereby making it lethal in many cases. 500 cases of GBS were detected during the US swine flu pandemic of 1976. During that outbreak more people died from the vaccine and its side effects than from the flu itself, and the US government was forced to pay out millions of dollars to the families of those affected. The 1976 vaccine was pulled after 10 weeks, once the link between it and GBS became so apparent and the payouts continued to grow exponentially.
The WHO, along with many health officials and vaccine manufacturers have been working since 2007 on this plan of distributing both disease and vaccine, primarily due to the 2006 Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) act. For the many that are unfamiliar with this act, it was designed to protect health officials and vaccine manufacturers from any legal recourse due to vaccinations or drugs. It states that unless a person can prove that a drug or vaccine manufacturer deliberately and willfully caused harm by their product, no legal action can be taken against them. Considering the amounts that were paid in 1976 its no wonder that they would wish to protect themselves in future endeavors of this magnitude; especially when this vaccine contains ingredients from formaldehyde, antifreeze, and thimerosal (mercury).
This information is intended solely to inform those who need to be informed, as you're not likely to see these facts on the numerous swine flu and vaccine related reports on the evening news. Once these vaccines are produced they will first be required for school children, followed by the elderly and health care workers. Another staggering fact is that half of the health workers in Hong Kong have already refused to be vaccinated over concerns of its effectiveness, and worry of potential side effects.
