Rather than take the time to fully test the swine flu vaccine properly, U.S. health authorities are charging ahead like the world is about to end.
It isn't like people are dropping dead from the swine flu all over the place. But instead of proceeding in a cautious manner, health officials are eagerly testing the swine flu vaccine wherever they can find willing volunteers.
In fact, they are paying good money to many of these volunteers.
Early reports had indicated that participants in swine flu trials around the U.S. were being paid fifty dollars to participate, but it looks like the price may have gone up substantially - at least in California. One ad on Craigslist is offering between 300 and 475 dollars to those willing to participate.
That may sound tempting to many people, but before anyone jumps at that opportunity perhaps they should remember how many people got seriously ill or even died from the 1976 swine flu vaccine.
The CDC's headquarters in Atlanta is even selling a stuffed swine flu toy in its gift shop. The fuzzy pink toy sells for 7.95 and it reportedly comes with an information booklet about the H1N1 virus.
But the U.S. government's main thrust in promoting the swine flu vaccine will come through the media. There is a growing awareness in government circles that a growing percentage of the American population simply does not plan to take the vaccine.
In a recent edition of the San Francisco Chronicle, Kris Sheedy, a communications director with the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, is quoted as telling reporters gathered at the CDC the following:
"Many parents (in focus groups) expressed a lot of concerns about 2009 H1N1 vaccine. Those concerns were centered around the fact that it was new and it was being developed quickly."
In particular, Sheedy recognized that many American parents are very concerned about injecting their children with an experimental vaccine that was rushed into production:
"There were comments such as 'this is new and I don't want my child to be a guinea pig.' "
But whether these concerns are legitimate or not, health "authorities" are already invading the airwaves with the message that if Americans do not take this vaccine that there is going to be a total health nightmare in this country.
Dr. Nancy Snyderman, billed as a "medical expert" at NBC News, is hyping this message to ridiculous lengths. Just check out the video below. The most shocking moment is at the very end of the video where she raises her voice and barks at viewers to "get your damn vaccine".....
So is all of this swine flu vaccine propaganda working on you?
Are you going to rush out and let them inject you with an experimental vaccine that is loaded with ingredients that you don't even know about?
The reality is that back in 1976 only one known person died from the swine flu, while large numbers of people were crippled or even died from the swine flu vaccine.
Are you certain that we will not see a repeat of that?
