300,000 Flu Vaccines Recalled Over Serious Adverse Reactions

By Anthony Gucciardi – NaturalSociety

Baxter Healthcare Corp. has announced it is recalling around 300,000 doses of its Preflucel flu vaccine due to an ‘excessive’ amount of adverse reactions. Recalled from thousands of pharmacies and surgeries across Europe, the 300,000 units are to be immediately withdrawn. With seasonal flu vaccines already linked to nerve disease Guillain-Barre Syndrome and narcolepsy and still being given out liberally to citizens worldwide, the adverse reactions must be quite serious in order to prompt a recall.

Even more concerning is the fact that vaccine makers actually have been given legal immunity thanks to a law signed by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.

Of course Baxter representatives are urging the public to stay calm, while also downplaying the risks associated with the shot. In the past NaturalSociety has revealed how Merck uses similar tactics to downplay the true side effects of the Gardasil vaccine, listing only minor side effects and ignoring the death link completely.

“The vaccine is being recalled because these side effects have been reported more frequently with this specific batch,” said a Baxter spokesmen. This spokesman also attempted to reassure the public that those who have already been vaccinated with Preflucel “should not be concerned (for their safety).”

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), the same government organization that confirmed the link between the seasonal flu shot and Guillain-Barre Syndrome after extensive denial, has issued a warning over Preflucel:

“[Preflucel] should no longer be used and any remaining stock [of the recalled batches] should be returned to the original supplier for credit,” announced the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency. “No further Preflucel of any batch should be administered at this time.”

Only time will tell what serious reactions are associated with this batch of Preflucel. In response to why the vaccine was recalled, Baxter states that “most of the side-effects are those usually associated with flu vaccines – they have started shortly after the vaccination and have been mild and short-lived.”

The problem with this statement is the fact that the seasonal flu shot has been repeatedly tied with serious adverse reactions. Therefore, it is not very reassuring that ‘most of the side-effects’ occur in the regular seasonal flu shot as well. Furthermore, it seems unlikely that Baxter would not recall flu vaccines, or at least investigate them further, after it was found that they are virtually ineffective and linked to nerve disease if they truly cared about your health. Therefore, it seems reasonable that despite the reassuring language of the Baxter spokesmen, this batch of Preflucel must be linked to something quite nasty.

While it may take some time to determine the true side effects of the shot, you can be sure Baxter will claim they are minor and virtually harmless.

    So is this the flu mist or injection and are you saying that we should not vaccinate ourselves or just stay away from this particular brand?

      Hi Cara and thanks for your comment.

      To answer your question, we really are just a conduit for information. My suggestion is to go with what feels right in your heart and not your head. Personally, I have never had a flu vaccine as it doesn’t sit right personally for myself. But this needs to be an individual decision. There are quite a few articles on this site that talks about flu vaccines if you would like to read more on the subject.

    This is a real threat.There is a link between H1N1 and GBS. After receiving the H1N1 shot, I became so weak from GBS that I could not walk or lift a fork to feed myself.I spent 4 weeks in the hospital and 6 weeks of physical therapy regaining the use of my limbs.My wife is a nurse and recognized the symptoms right away and got me to the hospital within three days. It could have been much worse.I give God all the glory for healing me and giving me such a rapid recovery. 1Pe 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
