Nearly The End Of Sept And No Swine Flu Vaccine

Recommended Posts

You may remember that during July we had govt officials saying that we would have the swine flu vaccine by the end of Aug.

Has anyone on here had it yet?

It seems that the govt was talking sh1te once more.

Who'd have thought that eh and not a mention of this in our over hysterical press.

We'll have Swine Flu vaccine in five weeks, promise health chiefs

Growing fears that the arrival of the swine flu vaccine will be delayed were dismissed by health chiefs yesterday.

They insisted the first supplies should be in Britain in five weeks' time - rejecting suggestions the jab was "still months away".

The pledge came as it emerged that Chloe Buckley, the six-yearold schoolgirl feared to have been a victim of swine flu, died from natural causes. Her parents were told her postmortem revealed the virus did not kill her.

Health chiefs stressed the UK would be one of the first countries to get the vaccine.

Chief Medical Officer Sir Liam Donaldson, seeking to calm fears of more deaths from the H1N1 virus, hit back at claims by Dr Margaret Chan of the World Health Organisation that the drug could be delayed Dr Chan had warned: "There's no vaccine. One should be available soon, in August. But having one available is not the same as having a vaccine that has been proven safe. Clinical trial data will not be available for another two to three months."

It would appear that WHO were more truthful than our govt.

Gordon Brown said today that the government would shortly introduce legislation to control bank bonuses that would be the "toughest" in the world.

In an interview on BBC1's Andrew Marr Show, the prime minister said the measures would be contained in a business and financial services bill that would go through parliament before the election.

Brown also dismissed calls for his resignation, denied that he was taking medication to help him cope with the stress of his job and insisted that there was a big difference between the Labour and Conservative approaches to curbing spending.

The prime minister spoke a few hours before the opening of the last Labour conference before the general election. With the polls suggesting the Tories are on course for a healthy victory, and Alistair Darling today voicing the doubts of many in the party with an interview saying the party appears to have "lost the will to live", Brown could find it his most difficult conference since Labour came to power in 1997.

The Financial Services Authority has already outlined plans to stop banks awarding bonuses that encourage risky behaviour but today Brown suggested that the legislation planned by the government would go further.

"Enough is enough. I am not going to stand by and allow people to return to ... the bad old days," Brown told Marr.

Don't forget you can trust the govt, they would never lie.

Bah swineflu (though when somebody died in S korea there was some genuine fear about it there, however I played this to my advantage being the ONLY person without a mask on the metro sneezing would get me a seat).

Swine flu is nothing to be worried about , like SARS , or bird flu , its nowt to be worried about until the deaths get into the 100s of thousands (per country) otherwise the risk is still lower than say driving a car.

In 1987 Oprah Winfrey said on her show that, by 1990 one fifth of the heterosexual population would be dead from AIDS.

How can anyone doubt what the media say about swine flu?

moo.

In case there is interest.

There is a pattern to pandemics, a small relatively harmless outbreak, then a rest period before the full bout. Of course, the second wave might not be too serious, but it is good to be prepared. Glaxo Smith Kline have an approved vaccine, which is to be produced in Belgium and distributed.

I thought everyone decided they wouldnt take it no matter what anyway.

I remember writing that long term unemployed, teenage mums and immigrants should be first in line, its only fair. They can definitely have my shot.
