I have read it twice now...<br><br>
On BBC news they said that the Mexican doctors were vaxed and some died. I also read on MCNBC that the Egyptian government was vaxing people for Swine Flu.<br><br>
If there is no Swine Flu vax what are they vaxing these people with?<br><br>
Here is the link to the MSNBC article. I can't find the BBC one now.<br><a href="http://worldblog.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2009/04/30/1915246.aspx" target="_blank">http://worldblog.msnbc.msn.com/archi...0/1915246.aspx</a>

I bet it is a placebo. I they ave them believing that killing their pigs is for the greater good then it isn't much of a leap t convince them that they are being "vaxed" They have no access to mass media.

I read an article that two or three times referred to Tamiflu as a "vaccine." So maybe the patients themselves or the authors of the articles you mentioned also have Tamiflu confused with a vaccine.<br><br>

People might also be getting this year's influenza vaccine, which contained H1N1 though of course, avian in origin not swine, but there is debate about whether it might offer some partial immunity, reduce severity of illness, that sort of thing.

Goodness gracious. If a dr. give Tamiflu to someone who doesn't have flu symptoms but as a preventative measure they should loose their license. This is what fearmongering does to people.
