Seasonal-flu shots halted in Canada

A "perplexing" Canadian study linking the H1N1 virus to seasonal-flu shots is throwing the nation's influenza plans into disarray and straining public faith in the government agencies responsible for protecting Canada's health.

Distributed for peer review last week, the study confounded infectious-disease experts in suggesting that people vaccinated against seasonal flu are twice as likely to catch swine flu.

With the paper under review, its lead researchers must stay mum until it's published. So far, the study's impact is confined to Canada. Researchers in the United States, Britain and Australia have not reported the same phenomenon.

Met with intense early skepticism both in Canada and abroad, the paper has since persuaded several provincial health agencies to announce hasty suspensions of seasonal-flu vaccinations, long-held fixtures of public health planning.

"It has confused things very badly," said Dr. Ethan Rubinstein, head of adult infectious diseases at the University of Manitoba. "Until last week, there had always been much encouragement to get the seasonal-flu vaccine."

Update on Canada vaccines: Guess what WHO says?

Canadian flu shot study unlikely to change policy: WHO

International influenza vaccine experts are apparently not convinced that Canadian researchers have found a true link between getting a seasonal flu shot and catching swine flu.

The consensus that emerged from a World Health Organization teleconference Friday on the controversial data seemed to be that the Canadian findings are likely due to some confounding factor or factors in the data themselves and may not reflect a real increased risk, according to a WHO official who helped pull together the meeting.

"From a WHO point of view, the fact that the findings are not replicated in other countries I think is reassuring for us that this is an outlier, if you like, the unexpected findings that are coming out of Canada," said David Wood, co-ordinator of the quality, safety and standards team of WHO's department of immunization, vaccines and biologicals.

"Most people are still looking at this as some sort of undetected confounding in the data, that for some reason is giving the results that are there."

This is great news. Their own data is being turned back....

against them and is undermining their pretext of developing this (untested) vaccine in the first place!
$100s of billions of dollars in contracts to Big Pharma are at stake and will go up in flames if this is for real.

Bad karma comes to those who do bad things.

Praise God early!

Yes, it does.
