Department of Homeland Security... and SWINE FLU?????

http://blog.newsweek.com/blogs/declassified/archive/2009/11/03/achoo-homeland-security-officials-take-on-the-flu.aspx

Making sure swine-flu vaccine and antiviral drugs are manufactured and then distributed in sufficient quantities to people who need them is one of the government's principal current objectives.

OP: I want to know who gets to decide and how they plan to distribute them. Also, what are they going to do with people who don't want it?

  • What do you mean, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO WITH PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT IT? Nothing. It's not a mandate.

    Then WHY have they been sending the vaccine to other countries?! Seems they think this particular vaccine is neither necessary nor effective?!

    Then why are they vaccinating children in schools without parental consent?

  • Agreed anona. Why do you think the pres. proclaimed it a national emergency. So they could take over and force you to take it.

  • It's a business. I don't believe there is a shortage at all. Not of the vaccine or of Tamiflu. They are intentionally creating supply and demand issues. This is all about money. Why don't you see this H1N1 frenzy in any other countries? I have a friend who was just in Moscow and not even a mention of it. My husband travels regularly to Mexico City where it all started and again no frenzy happening there either. I have in-laws in Buenos Aires and again no mention of it.
