Afraid of the flu - or afraid of the shot?

During the last few weeks, I have been trying to find an answer to this question.

I started reading about the ones that voice concerns.

Dr Kent Holtorf, an Infectious Disease Expert wouldn’t even consider having his family take the vaccine. Glenn Beck from Fox News asks why the World Health Organization, Big Pharma, and the government are hyping a pandemic and he sais that he would do the exact opposite of what the government recommended and attend a swine flu party. Dr. Mayer Eisenstein is advising his patients to say no and is convinced that vaccines cause autism and health care workers are protesting the flu vaccine mandate. A a growing chorus of doctors and researchers is claiming that being injected with the swine flu vaccine may be more hazardous than catching the flu and two-thirds of parents have serious reservations.

I then took note of legal action against the vaccine.

Jim Turner, a Washington, D.C., attorney noted for his work on consumer health issues, filed in federal court to stop all swine flu vaccinations' because none of the vaccines against H1N1 have been properly tested and Austrian Journalist Jane Burgermeister filed charges against WHO and UN for Bioterrorism and Intent to Commit Mass Murder.

And what about the official position on this issue?

A former federal health minister dismisses as crackpots and conspiracy theorists those who would actively discourage Australians from having their swine flu vaccine and experts assert that the Swine flu vaccines are safe and time-tested. The WHO Denies Reports of H1N1 Vaccine’s dangerous Effects and informs that the side effect of administering H1N1 vaccine is limited to a slight fever and pain at the site of injection. France, Greece the UK and the US have or are planning to make the Swine Flus vaccination mandatory. And the German Government will get a special swine flu vaccine. An official UK government report is warning the British public that there will be countless deaths and that freight containers and inflatable storage units may be needed to provide extra mortuary space.

And what about the money the Big Pharma makes?

Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, MedImmune, Australian drug maker CSL, and Sanofi-Pasteur will likely make a great deal of money and there is no financial incentive to make a safe vaccine, and no repercussions for making an unsafe one.

And finally I read about Desiree Jennings who can move sideways and backwards, but not forward.

So, should I be afraid of the Swine Flu, of the vaccine - or of both?

Right now, I'm just surprised. Surprised that these vaccines contain so many additives, surprised I see no freight containers and inflatable storage units to provide extra mortuary space - yet. And surprised that if this vaccine is so safe and time-tested and the side effect of administering H1N1 vaccine is limited to a slight fever and pain at the site of injection Jim Turner, a Washington, D.C., attorney and Austrian Journalist Jane Burgermeister have deemed it necessary to file serious charges.

It just does not fit together. Something is wrong. Maybe something is wrong with this global vaccine campaign. Maybe something is wrong with my perception of it.

But definitely it seems wrong to me to force me to get this flu shot. And it seems wrong to me to force anybody to get this flu shot.

And I find it strange that the WHO, that the Big Pharma, that the governments seem to be very unable at informing the global public in a way that those fears are dispersed.

Why should the Government get a different vaccine than my daughter? And why should my daughter get a vaccine with so many potential side effects for a flu that has killed - comparatively - so few people?

And what are the long term consequences of such a vaccine? Is this good for my immune system, does this vaccine protect me from a mutated swine flu virus? Is this vaccine going to increase my dependency from Big Pharma to survive? Is autism possibly really caused by vaccines?

And how can a few weeks be enough time to test such a vaccine?. Make sure it is safe to use for children? Safe for my wife? Safe for me?

I'm waiting. Still waiting for information that could comfort me. That could remove my fear. Information that could answer more and more questions I have.

Will the governments, the WHO, the media, the Big Pharma be able to provide me this information?

Might I and YOU not have a constitutional right to be properly informed? Instead of forced?

Too many questions. Too few answers. This seems to be the Swine Flu Game.
