Meanwhile..... the military is being called into action for this fall's expected outbreak - will you be forced to get this new vaccine? (and if you don't like FOX you can go to the CNN link)
Defense Secretary Robert Gates is preparing to sign an order authorizing the military to set up five regional teams to deal with the potential outbreak of H1N1 influenza if FEMA requests help.
and today The Washington Post reports that the vaccines will contain mercury (thimerosal) :
Some of the vaccine will be stored in multi-dose vials containing thimerosal, an antibacterial additive that contains mercury. But there will also be single-dose syringes without thimerosal, a substance that some assert is harmful to children.
Note to self:
Mercury is classified by The Department of Defense as a hazardous material that could cause death if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin, and the EPA is now limiting mercury emissions from factories because the toxin “can damage the brain and nervous system and is especially dangerous to fetuses and small children,” but according to the CDC it’s perfectly safe to inject into your child’s bloodstream.
Meanwhile ... 12,000 young guinea pigs are being used to test this new vaccine.
and the beat goes on....
