The latest Swine Flu outbreak of H3N2v is causing concern for the CDC and it could turn into a major concern for parents around the world as this outbreak is mainly a problem for kids.
In March this year (2012) the CDC warned of the potential pandemic that could happen with H3N2v, a variant of Swine Flu H1N1. It was first thought that the it could only be transmitted via swine->human contact but in fact, the CDC are now saying that there is limited human to human infection taking place.
April 2012 and CIDRAP publish their study claiming that variant H3N2v risk greatest in kids under 10 years old. Basically, the swine flu variant started back in the 1990′s which means that most adults will have some kind of immunity to it.
The 2009 pandemic and surrounding conspiracy let the government and ‘big pharma’ know that people were not happy about taking the vaccine and getting their regular flu shots. The uptake for children was lower than ever – even in the mist of an actual worldwide pandemic. Anyone who has ever thought that there was a risk of having so many vaccines pumped into their system seemed to be proved correct when reports started to surface of children suffering ill effects.
One person that we spoke to regarding Swine Flu said “We live in such a sterile environment these days that our children have no natural immunity to anything.” They continued, “natural immunity should be built up over time by exposure – The WHO and the CDC have all had to admit that Swine Flu is no more dangerous than seasonal flu and we only vaccinate those who have underlying problems.”
H3N2v Worldwide Infections
What does seem to be confusing many people is the fact that the CDC reports on the USA and not worldwide, in another study by CIDRAP into the effectiveness of Swine Flu vaccination, they released the following statistics:
It focused on people in flu-vaccination target groups. Over the last 5 weeks of 2011 and the first 7 weeks of this year, providers recruited 2,090 patients with flu-like illness, 575 of whom were in the target groups. Of 935 confirmed flu cases, 867 were H3N2 viruses. Because of the small sample size, the study focused on this subtype only. Of 538 cases included in the analysis, there were 208 H3N2 infections and 330 negative controls.
That seems a very high number of people infected with H3N2. In the same study they found that the vaccine was only 43% effective.
A preliminary study from eight European countries suggests that this year’s flu vaccine was 43% effective against H3N2 viruses, with antigenic drift cited as a possible contributor to the limited vaccine effectiveness (VE).
Utter Confusion And Contradictions Over Swine Flu
Where it gets to sound like more of a joke than a serious pandemic is when the governments come forward saying that ALL children will receive seasonal flu jab in the UK to stop the spread to old people – the very people who are not at risk because they already have a natural immunity!
Children under 10 years old are most at risk because they have no natural immunity and yet The JCVI has recommended children receive what is known as a ‘live attenuated’ virus – basically a low dose of real, live infection. This is different to that currently given to people (including children) in ‘at risk’ groups and adults over 65, who are given a ‘killed’ virus.
The Telegraph goes on to say:
Wendy Barclay, professor of virology at Imperial College London, explained that flu vaccines with a ‘killed virus’ gave recipients stronger immunity for a broader spectrum of flu strains, but protection faded quite fast.
The idea behind giving successive doses of live strains is that these prompted the immune system, she said, mimicking the natural process of getting and fighting flu infection.
Children’s immune systems would then be “primed” for a range of strains from different flu sub-groups, she said, including fast-developing pandemic strains like swine flu, which exploded in 2009.
No parent would want to be accused of intentionally hurting their children or putting them at risk so even parents with doubts will be made to feel that they have no choice in the matter.
More concerning is the fact that if a parent says ‘No!’ to vaccinations (in the UK) your child can be spoken to without you being present and told of the benefits of those vaccines and if the CHILD agree’s to them then they take place anyway.
More confusion and bully-boy tactics is expected ….
