According to a Fox News poll, the majority of respondents think that the swine flu vaccine is deadlier than the actual virus itself, emphasizing the growing momentum in the revolt against government plans to institute mass H1N1 vaccination programs.
Despite attempts on behalf of governments and their lapdog corporate media allies to push the necessity of the H1N1 vaccination, large numbers of the general public along with health workers have made it known that they will refuse to take the shot.
The latest effort on behalf of the establishment to push the vaccine occurred earlier this week when Dr. Nancy Snyderman, billed as chief medical editor at NBC News, stated during an MSNBC panel discussion that people should reject “conspiracy theories” about the vaccine’s safety, trust the government and “get your damn vaccine”.
The desperation and anger in Snyderman’s snarly voice was clearly a result of frustration arising out of the fact that vast numbers of people are getting educated about what will actually be in the vaccine.
[efoods]The swine flu vaccine is being rushed through safety procedures while governments have provided pharmaceutical companies with blanket immunity from lawsuits arriving out of the vaccine causing deaths and injuries.
It was previously revealed that some batches of the vaccine will contain mercury, a toxin linked with autism and neurological disorders. The vaccine will also contain the dangerous ingredient squalene, which has been directly linked with cases of Gulf War Syndrome and a host of other debilitating diseases.
It was also recently reported that the UK government sent a confidential letter to senior neurologists telling them to be on the alert for cases of a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.
The Fox News poll on the issue is not scientific but is impossible to “game” for one side or the other because votes are restricted to one per IP address.
The results show that 50% think the vaccine is a greater risk than the virus, 32% think not taking the vaccine is the greater risk, while 19% are undecided.
The poll arrives on the back of a study published in the world’s foremost peer-reviewed medical journal which found that half of Hong Kong’s medical workers would refuse to take the swine flu vaccine because of fears about its safety.
Research conducted by the University of Hong Kong and made public by the British Medical Journalconsistently found that less than half of 8,500 doctors and nurses in public hospitals would accept vaccination against H1N1 influenza.
“The major barriers identified were fear of side effects and doubts about efficacy.” The study reveals.
Microbiologists and infectious disease experts involved in the study also suggest that the number of dissenters is likely to be broadly representative of health workers worldwide.
This followed a survey conducted by Nursing Times magazine in which it was discovered that just 37 per cent of nurses and frontline health workers said they would take the swine flu vaccine in a survey conducted by Nursing Times magazine. 30 per cent said they would not be immunized and 33 per cent said they were unsure.
Two separate polls of GPs in Britain have also revealed that one in two doctors have severe reservations over the safety of the forthcoming H1N1 flu vaccine, raising serious questions over the government’s planned mass vaccination program.
A poll of doctors for Pulse magazine found that 49% would reject the vaccine with 9% still undecided.
56 of the 115 GPs surveyed said they did not intend to receive the jab, according to the UK’s leading medical weekly publication for health professionals.
A second poll conducted by GP magazine reveals that Up to 60% of GPs have severe doubts over the proposed vaccine. Of 216 GPs surveyed, 29% say they will outright refuse to be vaccinated, while a further 29% remain unsure. Only 41% of doctors said they would definitely take the shot.
