H1N1 or Swine flu deaths could reach 90,000 this fall. Are you still not getting vaccinated?

August 25, 2009
he President’s Advisory council (PCAST) has released a report stating the nation’s H1N1 or Swine flu preparedness. In the report, a projected ‘worst case scenario’ depicts between 30,000 and 90,000 people could die from the virus this fall. The new H1N1 or Swine flu strain is virulent and expected to have the most devastating effect With the new vaccine expected to be ready by mid October, it is estimated that nearly 40 percent of citizens could contract the H1N1 virus or suffer from Swine flu symptoms this fall.

Each year, an estimated 36,000 deaths are attributed to seasonal flu. The projected 30,000-90,000 deaths attributed to the H1N1 or Swine flu virus would not replace the 36,000 deaths caused by seasonal flu, but are in addition to those deaths.

  • Ladies, please research these flu vaccines, Autism Spectrum Disorders are now 1/67 according to NVIC, whom I do trust. (CDC says 1/100?) Alzheimer's is also high. Who is targeted for flu vax's? Our little ones and our elderly. I am not completely anti-vaccine, or at least I think I'm not, I'm not sure of any of them, anymore. I do know that giving babies vaccine multiples at the same time, is more than their little bodies can take on. Vaccines are loaded with neuro-toxins which to us, is poison. Our son has Autism.
    As many as 5.3 million people in the United States are living with Alzheimer’s. Every 70 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer's is the seventh-leading cause of death.
    One out of eight people age 65 and older (13 percent) has Alzheimer's. (2009)

  • I still won't get it and neither will my kids, we don't get regular flu shots either. My husband was a little worried about the swine flu when we were in London (they have it worse then we do) but we're fine.

  • It is a scare tactic, so we will change our minds about the UHC.

  • I dont buy into it. The regular flu is more deadly. We will not be getting this unstudied vaccine

  • I doubt it. My children go the regular flu vaccine. I have started taking other precautions them a good vitamin daily, daily doses of Vitamin C, more vigilant handwashing, and they carry hand sanitizer in their booksacks. I figure the flu shot and a good boost to their immune system should go a long way. I don't trust anything that this government is doing at this point.
