  • Hi ladies,

    This concerns me, someone in another group of mine wrote this. I remember someone posted how swine flu was different the the normal flu shot. Can anyone tell me how? I really want to clear that up! 

    This is what she wrote.


    The swine flu is just another strain of the flu.  The vax for it is just going to be another flu shot.  Made the same way as all the others.

 They are using an adjuvant (chemical to stimulate the immune system) called Squalene (MF-59). This adjuvant is linked to the Gulf War Syndrome and is NOT approved by the FDA. Also, this vaccine is linked, more so than the regular flu shot to Gullian Barre Syndrome, a paralytic nerve disorder.

Quoting kerry17:

Just FYI, the use of an adjuvant has not been approved in the US so the H1N1 vaccine (at this time) does NOT contain squalene. The European vaccine, however, does.
