Health News – This man takes medical marijuana for the first time to treat Parkinson’s…the results are incredible

This man takes medical marijuana for the first time to treat Parkinson’s…the results are incredible.

Between 1955-1975, more than 7,000 young men were used as human test subjects for 250+ chemical and biological agents, including lethal nerve agents, tear gas, barbiturates, tranquilizers and narcotics.
These soldiers were put in gas chambers, injected with deadly drugs, confined to padded rooms, forced to inhale hallucinogenic agents pumped through gas masks and were ordered by the US military to remain silent about the unimaginable, criminal cruelty they endured.

Four-year-old Chase Walker-Steven is at the centre of a heartbreaking, and very public, fight for his life.
Unable to walk or talk, Chase suffers with his constant seizures in silence while being pulled in two different directions by those concerned for his health.
It’s the almighty battle between alternative and traditional medicines – but are they helping him? Or killing him?

Iceland knows how to stop teen substance abuse but the rest of the world isn’t listening
In Iceland, teenage smoking, drinking and drug use have been radically cut in the past 20 years. Emma Young finds out how they did it, and why other countries won’t follow suit.
17 January 2017
It’s a little before three on a sunny Friday afternoon and Laugardalur Park, near central Reykjavik, looks practically deserted. There’s an occasional adult with a pushchair, but the park’s surrounded by apartment blocks and houses, and school’s out – so where are all the kids?
Walking with me are Gudberg Jónsson, a local psychologist, and Harvey Milkman, an American psychology professor who teaches for part of the year at Reykjavik University. Twenty years ago, says Gudberg, Icelandic teens were among the heaviest-drinking youths in Europe. “You couldn’t walk the streets in downtown Reykjavik on a Friday night because it felt unsafe,” adds Milkman. “There were hordes of teenagers getting in-your-face drunk.”
We approach a large building. “And here we have the indoor skating,” says Gudberg.

Portugal decriminalized minor possession of all drugs 16 years ago, and the effects on addiction are incredible.

 

Vaccine News – Doctors Against Vaccines – Hear From Those Who Have Done the Research

Doctors Against Vaccines – Hear From Those Who Have Done the Research
June 7, 2015 by Joel Edwards
Last updated on: May 21, 2016
The general public shares a common misconception – that all doctors, or all “real doctors” support vaccination. Although it is true that the majority of doctors support vaccines, not all do.
Most doctors blindly support the recommendations of the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Doctors are trained in administering vaccines, not in how they are made. There are some doctors that choose to do the research themselves in order to develop an informed opinion on the subject. These doctors who become knowledgeable about vaccines usually become anti-vaccine. A little knowledge goes a long way.
Without a doubt we live in the age of autism, but it is also the age of chronic illness. One in eighty-eight children are diagnosed with autism, while half of all children now struggle with chronic illnesses such as asthma, diabetes, ADHD, etc. This rise in illness correlates with the dramatic increase in vaccines given to our children along with a growing exposure to other toxic chemicals

1918 Spanish Flu Was Caused By Vaccinations, Shocking Report
May 13, 2015 Sean Adl-Tabatabai
Shortly after the First World War, vaccine makers had an excess supply of vaccines (originally intended for soldiers to treat yellow fever), as a result of the relatively unexpected short duration of the war.
A huge vaccination campaign was drummed up to vaccinate the population against “foreign illnesses” the troops were returning with. The vaccines administered to most of the population made people extremely ill with cases of high fever, extreme weakness, abdominal rash, and intestinal disturbances characteristic of typhoid, to name but a few symptoms.
In order to treat these symptoms pharmaceutical companies and doctors developed stronger vaccines to treat the symptoms of the previous ones. The ongoing asault of ever-stronger vaccines being administered to the public created a widespread epidemic of vaccine related illnesses which the government were forced to blame on Spanish Flu.

Exclusive: The Spanish Influenza Epidemic Of 1918 Was Caused By Vaccinations
Published on October 15, 2013
Therefore, there will be no swine flu epidemic unless the vaccine promoters make one like they did in the 1918 flu epidemic. It will not kill 20,000,000 people unless the people submit to the disease-producing shots. There are also, other causes of disease besides vaccines, such as bad food, which has been devitalized and contaminated with poison preservatives and artificial drug concoctions. There are many more causes of disease but no diseases are contagious.
Vaccine drives come and go as often as the vaccine promoters can cook up the slightest pretense of a reason.n Back in1957 they were trying to stir up a vaccination campaign for what they decided to call Asiatic flu. An editorial in the Herald and Express for August 29, 1957 was captioned, “Fear of Flu Propaganda.” Part of the piece is as follows:
“What a tempest in a teapot has been blown up over the probability that this country will experience an epidemic of the Asiatic flu in the fall and winter months ahead.
“Even the United States Department of Health is stooge for the panic — and has issued statements which are frightening the public, rather than reassuring them by pointing out that this epidemic, while widespread, gives no indication of being any more dangerous than our usual flood of influenza-like colds when winter comes on.
“Those who read between the lines even wonder whether the whole thing might not be a bit of super salesmanship on the part of those who are making and selling the vaccines which are being prepared.. . .”

What the News Isn’t Saying About Vaccine-Autism Studies
by sattkisson    on November 27, 2016
A new study this week found no link between vaccines and autism. It instantly made headlines on TV news and popular media everywhere. Many billed it as the final word, “once again,” disproving the notion that vaccines could have anything to do with autism.
What you didn’t learn on the news was that the study was from a consulting firm that lists major vaccine makers among its clients: The Lewin Group.
That potential conflict of interest was not disclosed in the paper published in The New England Journal of Medicine; the study authors simply declare “The Lewin Group operates with editorial independence.”
(As an aside, according to OpenSecrets.org, The Lewin Group’s parent company, UnitedHealth Group, is a key government partner in Obamacare. Its subsidiary QSSI was given the contract to build the federal government’s HealthCare.gov website. One of its top executives and his family are top Obama donors.)
Conflicts of interest alone do not invalidate a study. But they serve as important context in the relentless effort by pharmaceutical interests and their government partners to discredit the many scientists and studies that have found possible vaccine-autism links.
Many Studies Suggest Possible Vaccine-Autism Links

Quit Using Immunocompromised People to Promote Your Vaccine Agenda
CDC, I’m talking to you. Media, I’m talking to you. Pediatricians, I’m talking to you. Parents who shame other parents, I’m talking to you. Using immunocompromised people as pawns in a vaccine-pushing agenda that twists scientific data to manipulate emotions is abhorrent.
As the mother of a child with an immunodeficiency, I can say with certainty there is no human on this planet who cares more about his health and well being than I do. I can also say with certainty that the push to vaccinate for the sake of the immunocompromised has nothing to do with science and everything to do with an agenda.
Once upon a time, listening only to propaganda and not bothering to read the fine print, I lined up for the flu shot to “protect” my son. That was before I understood these facts.
Vaccine induced herd immunity doesn’t exist. You, of course, are supposed to believe it does and you’re supposed to believe if you don’t vaccinate your child, my son could suffer or even die. The concept of herd immunity is promoted to coerce people to do their part for the immunocompromised but it isn’t supported by factual data.

The Hate Debate
Megan Heimer April 15, 2014
I am sick of it … this vaccination debate. My convictions not to vaccinate have been firm for eight years now and I was comfortable living a low-profile life and letting other more notable activists carry the torch; and then I started seeing misleading t.v. interviews, news stories, and backlash against parents and unvaccinated children. I saw reputable medical professionals get crucified and reputations destroyed for questioning the mainstream norm. I saw laws passed in other states removing freedoms that rightfully belong to parents and individuals as a whole. I saw fear, blame, finger-pointing, lies, and flat-out hate being propagated and encouraged by people, physicians, and popular media avenues towards parents who don’t vaccinate, and their children.
This isn’t a vaccination debate – it’s a hate debate, so let’s call it what it is. When it got personal I got involved, so let’s clear a few things up:
I am not an “anti-vaxxer” or a “disinformation  activist.”
I am a parent. Some people believe that parents can’t make an educated decision on this issue, that you should check all of your questions and reservations about vaccinating at the door and trust your physician, that is unless your physician also questions vaccines (or supports a delayed schedule), then he’s a quack.

Dr. Suzanne Humphries, M.D. – Vaccine Strain of Measles Virus Found in Measles Outbreaks
May 19, 2017
Dr. Suzanne Humphries is a practicing nephrologist (kidney physician). In this lecture (video below), she addresses a study done in Croatia [1] where a child who was vaccinated with the MMR vaccine was tested positive for the measles vaccine strain Schwarz eight days after vaccination.
This was a significant finding, because the child’s symptoms were thought to be similar to rubella, and without testing, the sickness would have been possibly mis-diagnosed as rubella, or the wild-type strain of measles the vaccine is designed to protect against.
This concept of “shedding,” where the child comes down with the disease from the virus in the vaccine itself, surprised the researchers:
Virus excretion in vaccinees has been reported before, but to our knowledge, this is documented for the first time for the Schwarz vaccine strain. [1]
Since 2010, this phenomena of vaccine shedding with measles in the MMR vaccine has been observed in at least two other studies:
Differentiating the wild from the attenuated during a measles outbreak. Paediatrcis and Child Health, 2012:
In the midst of a local measles outbreak, a recently immunized child was investigated for a new-onset measles-type rash. Nucleic acid testing identified that a vaccine-type measles virus was being shed in the urine. Clinically differentiating measles from a nonmeasles rash is challenging, but can be supported by a thorough medical history evaluation. Rashes are expected to occur after immunization; nucleic acid testing can be used when it is difficult to differentiate between wild and attenuated strains. [2]
Case of vaccine-associated measles five weeks post-immunisation, British Columbia, Canada, Eurosurveillance, 2013:
We describe a case of vaccine-associated measles in a two-year-old patient from British Columbia, Canada, in October 2013, who received her first dose of measles-containing vaccine 37 days prior to onset of prodromal symptoms. Identification of this delayed vaccine-associated case occurred in the context of an outbreak investigation of a measles cluster. [3]
Are health officials testing cases of measles in the current outbreak in the United States, to determine if the measles strain is the wild strain of the vaccine strain?
Not likely, and it is not likely that the mainstream media “TV doctors” will even discuss this as they falsely vilify parents who choose not to administer the MMR vaccine to their children as the cause of these outbreaks. Some of these cases are confirmed to be among those who have received the MMR vaccine, and for those who have not been vaccinated, is it possible they were infected from those recently vaccinated when the vaccine was still “shedding,” and that the vaccine-strain of measles was passed on from the vaccinated child to the unvaccinated child?

Former Merck Rep Says Mandatory Vaccination Is For Profit and Not Public Health

Former Merck Rep Says Mandatory Vaccination Is For Profit and Not Public Health
Brandy Vaughan is a former sales rep for Merck & Co. – a vaccine maker – and she details how vaccine companies are using vaccines as a vehicle for massive profit and not public health. Brandy researched the safety of vaccines and found that not only do vaccines contain known toxins that can cause neurological damage, but that vaccine makers do not create the same safety studies for vaccines as they do for other drugs. This lack of true safety research of vaccines combined with the known adverse reactions to vaccination has helped Brandy to decide to never vaccinate her own child. Brandy says giving children a vaccine is like playing Russian roulette with our children and that mandatory vaccination is simply a way for vaccine makers to profit off of our children. Don’t be fooled: we do not need mandatory vaccination.

The devastated mum-of-three and her partner had only just celebrated Ava’s first birthday and had taken all the precautions to prevent meningitis by having the newly introduced vaccinations.

Natural News – If vaccines are 100% safe and have harmed no one, then why did the U.S. government pay out over $3 billion in awards to thousands of families damaged by vaccines?
Wednesday, May 17, 2017 by: Vicki Batts
(Natural News) While the mainstream media may love to laud vaccines, and proponents of the vaccine agenda praise Big Pharma’s injections as a holy grail for humanity, the truth is that vaccines are not some kind of flawless gift to civilization. Vaccines, like everything else in life, are not and cannot be guaranteed to be 100 percent safe. Even something as seemingly innocuous as water can be fatal, even in a small amount.
Not only would it be silly to assume that vaccines are perfect, it would go against all available facts about vaccines. The United States government has created a system for people who are harmed by vaccines, so they can report these events, and even make claims via a court system so families can receive financial restitution for their suffering.
But vaccines are harmless, right? Yet, the government has paid out over $3 billion in awards and legal fees for families and persons that have been affected by vaccine damage between the years of 1989 and 2015. In total, 3,937 cases have resulted in the awarding of financial compensation via the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).
And those are just the ones who managed to convince the court that a vaccine damaged their child or themselves. Nearly 10,000 people have had their cases dismissed by the court. This is unsurprising, because as you might imagine, it can be difficult to convince the court. Very difficult.

Vaccine News – Mike Adams – Natural News – DON’T INJECT ME!

Boston Herald Sets Dangerous & Disgusting Trend of Dehumanizing Parents
5/10/2017
by Jeffrey Jaxen
On May 8, The Boston Herald ran an editorial calling for the following:
“These are the facts: Vaccines don’t cause autism. Measles can kill. And lying to vulnerable people about the health and safety of their children ought to be a hanging offense.”
The piece was in response to a recent event in which Somali American families, who have the highest rate of autism in the United States, voiced their concerns about the vaccine injury they were experiencing. The Minnesota Somali community is being aggressively targeted for rounds of MMR vaccines.

Del Bigtree – Vaccine question for your Doctor
Del Matthew Bigtree is a producer and director, known for The Doctors (2008), and Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe (2016). Here he poses the ultimate to ask your Doctor … before he jabs poisons known as ‘vaccines’ into your baby … while its immune system is still developing.

Hepatitis B Vaccine Kills 10 Month Old

Toxic vaccine ingredients and their adverse effects:
• Bovine cow serum: Extracted from cow skin. When injected causes connective tissue disorders, arthritis and lupus; also shortness of breath, low blood pressure, chest pain and skin reactions.
• Sorbitol: Synthetic sweetener which metabolizes very slowly and aggravates IBS and gastrointestinal issues.
• Gelatin: Derived from the collagen inside animals’ skin and bones. Injecting gelatin poses the risk of infection from synthetic growth hormones and BSE infectivity (mad cow disease).
• Sodium chloride: Raises blood pressure and inhibits muscle contraction and growth.
• Egg protein: Vaccines are prepared in eggs (certainly not organic). May contain growth hormones, antibiotics, and salmonella bacteria.
• Thimerosal: A neurotoxic mercury which causes autism: There are 25 mcg in one average flu vaccine, and the EPA safety limit is 5 micrograms, so children who are vaccinated simultaneously with multiple* vaccines receive over 10 times the safety limit of mercury in one day.
• Human albumin: The protein portion of blood from pooled human venous plasma; when injected causes fever, chills, hives, rash, headache, nausea, breathing difficulty, and rapid heart rate. Injecting “pooled blood” can result in a loss of body cell mass and cause immunodeficiency virus infection, or contain SV40, AIDS, cancer or Hepatitis B from drug addicts.
• Formaldehyde: Highly carcinogenic fluid used to embalm corpses. Ranked one of the most hazardous compounds to human health; can cause liver damage, gastrointestinal issues, reproductive deformation, respiratory distress and cancer. Plus, formaldehyde has been known to fail to deactivate the virus the vaccine is intended to cure, thus enabling a live virus to enter your blood and infect your system.
• Phenoxyethanol: A glycol ether/chemical; highly toxic to the nervous system, kidneys, and liver. The FDA warns “can cause shut down of the central nervous system (CNS), vomiting and contact dermatitis” in cosmetics; imagine when injected into your blood.
• Aluminum phosphate: Greatly increases toxicity of mercury, so caution about minimum mercury tolerance is therefore severely underestimated. CDC scientists and all doctors are well aware of this.
• MSG (monosodium glutamate): When injected becomes a neurotoxin, causing CNS disorders and brain damage in children.

Jeff Rense – New Frankenstein Synthetic DNA Vaccines Forever Change YOU
The next gen of vaccine horror is here. You better pay EXTREMELY close attention to this conversation.
‘Science’ has announced that vaccines are moving away from traditional formats and will now be composed
of viruses that will carry entirely new forms of DNA right into your cells where they will REPLACE or join your body’s
existing, God-given NATURAL DNA with this new SYNTHETIC DNA. This new DNA will allegedly confirm protection
on you from various viruses that each new DNA type is created to kill. However, this new virus-delivered
SYNTHETIC DNA can be created to do almost ANYTHING to you…permanently and forever. This fake
DNA can CHANGE ANY PART OF YOUR BEING…from intellectual and emotional processes to all physical traits that
are created and regulated by our natural DNA. We are entirely governed by our birth DNA but soon, according to
one scientist, ‘EVERYONE WILL HAVE SYNTHETIC DNA.’ We are talking about ABSOLUTE CONTROL of the
human species through synthetic, DNA. This is a monumentally important video.

School Bans Unvaccinated Kids After Immunized Children Start Chickenpox Outbreak
By Annabelle Bamforth – May 10, 2017
Augora Hills, CA — Close to one-quarter of students at a California elementary school have been directed by school officials to stay home for three weeks due to a small onset of chickenpox cases that began in March.
The chickenpox outbreak at Mariposa School of Global Education in Augora Hills, California is unique because the first case of chickenpox discovered at the school was found in a student who had been fully vaccinated.
Daniel Stepenosky, the superintendent of Las Virgenes Unified School District that includes the Mariposa School, acknowledged to CBS Los Angeles that three students were found to have chickenpox. “A kindergartener, a first-grader, a third-grader. The first case happened around mid-March. The student was immunized, however still contracted chickenpox.”
According to local newspaper The Acorn, Stepenosky noted that “(It’s) interesting . . . the first of three cases was a student that was fully immunized. . . . He was the vaccinated one.”

House backs measure barring mandatory vaccines for foster children
Discussion over a bill that would improve the state’s Child Protective Services agency turned into a heated debate over vaccines — and whether they should be required for children placed in foster care.

State Rep. Bill Zedler, R-Arlington, proposed an amendment that would prohibit those examinations from including vaccinations. He was joined by several Republican members of the Freedom Caucus who insisted that vaccines were invasive and unnecessary.

“The Public Must Be Informed” Dr. Andrew Wakefield
From the average Joe to well respected medical doctors who have been noted as saying after they see the film that the film will change the way they practice medicine. Dr. Andrew Wakefield is getting the truth out on his hit documentary, “Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe.”
By
Health Coach Beverly Butler
What happens when your multi-billion dollar empire is threatened by a simple research paper and you know the research is correct? You bash and discredit the author of the paper and assassinate his character and hope the problem goes away. Well it didn’t and on today’s show I talk to the author of the paper and the director of the film, “Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe.”
Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the man who was discredited by the mainstream media after publishing his research paper in the Lancet in 1998 that stated there MAY be a possible connection between the MMR vaccines and autism, has since been exonerated and is now getting the truth out on his hit documentary, “Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe.”
Dr. Andrew Wakefield – is an academic gastroenterologist and researcher and directs and stars in this film. This film has reached millions with the truth and is waking people up en mass. From the average Joe to well respected medical doctors who have been noted as saying after they see the film that the film will change the way they practice medicine.
He gave practical solutions to this problem without ever saying vaccines should be done away with – which he NEVER said. All he suggested based on research was that the MMR vaccine would be safer to be given in 3 separate doses and given when the child is older. That’s all! And he was crucified for saying this.

So why is it only Andy Wakefield we hear about? Why is HE the scapegoat? Well, one answer is that after the paper was published in The Lancet, he was asked publicly whether he would recommend continued use of the MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine. Dr. Wakefield replied that, in his personal opinion, he would not—that he would encourage the use of the single dose measles vaccine (not the combined version) instead… just to be on the safe side.
It was probably that response that immediately made him the target of the giant pharmaceutical SmithKline Beecham (now GlaxoSmithKline) which made and sold the MMR vaccine in the United Kingdom. Little tidbit… media mogul Rupert Murdoch and his family just happened to have a financial interest in that company and one of his sons, James, actually sat on its board of directors.

The Escalating Efforts to Silence Vaccine Safety Debate
By Alison Fujito
It’s one thing to recommend something you believe in. It’s quite another to demand that everyone else believe in it as well.  Add hostility, politics, lobbyists, and an industry with a long history of dishonesty, and the result is the antithesis of the founding principles of this country.
Last month, Cosmopolitan posted a very disturbing opinion piece by a lobbyist for vaccine mandates, attorney Jinny Suh. Ms. Suh is the creator and leader of the activist group “Immunize Texas” which she terms a “grass-roots community group.” It’s actually a branch of “Immunize USA,” which is funded by vaccine companies GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Pfizer, and vaccine inventor and industry spokesman Paul Offit, among others.
The article is liberally sprinkled with pejoratives and thinly-veiled accusations directed towards those who don’t agree with the author. The end result leaves a strong impression encouraging fear, repression, and hatred against anyone wanting to maintain the right to determine which invasive medical procedures they are willing to have performed on their children, and when.

Let’s remember the facts here:
Vaccination is an invasive medical procedure.
Medical procedures may be declined by the patient.
Medical procedures on infants and children ARE PARENTING DECISIONS.

Over 100 Seniors Die After Receiving Flu Shot & Immunogenicity of High-dose Inactivated, Split-virion Influenza Vaccine Versus Standard Fluzone Vaccine in the Elderly

Over 100 Seniors Die After Receiving Flu Shot
In the first study 2,573 adults ages 65 and older received the Fluzone high-dose and 1,260 received regular Fluzone shots. Out of those a surprising number of seniors, 156 high-dose and 93 regular-dose recipients, had a severe adverse event (SAE) within 6 months post-vaccination.
In addition, 16 high-dose and 7 regular-dose recipients died between 29 and 180 days post-vaccination. But as the package insert received by unsuspecting patients puts it, “no deaths were reported within 28 days post-vaccination.”
In the second study 15,992 adults ages 65 and older received the Fluzone high-dose and 15,991 received the regular Fluzone. Results show that 1,323 high-dose and 1,442 regular Fluzone recipients had a SAE within 6 to 8 months post-vaccination (204 high-dose and 200 regular-dose experienced a SAE within 30 days). In addition, 83 high-dose and 84 regular-dose died within 6 to 8 months, and 6 high-dose recipients died within 30 days post-vaccination.
According to the Fluzone vaccine information sheet none of these deaths were linked to the vaccine. They state that “these data do not provide evidence for a causal relationship between deaths and vaccination with Fluzone High-Dose.”
So a pharmaceutical funded study finds no “causal relationship” between deaths and vaccinations? Color me surprised. Here is the consent form you must sign if you get a flu shot from Rite Aid.
“I have read, or have had read to me the Vaccination Information Sheet (VIS) regarding the vaccine(s). I have had the opportunity to ask questions that were answered to my satisfaction and understand the benefits and risks of the vaccine(s). I consent to, or give consent for, the administration of the vaccine(s). I fully release and discharge Rite Aid Corporation, its affiliates, officers, directors, and employees from any liability for illness, injury, loss, or damage which may result there from,” states the Rite Aid consent form.
If these vaccines are so incredibly safe and routine, why on earth must we sign away liability?

A Study of Fluzone® High-Dose Vaccine Compared With Fluzone® Vaccine In Elderly Adults
Other Outcome Measures:
Safety Overview After Injection With Either Fluzone High Dose or Fluzone Vaccine Through the End of Surveillance Period [ Time Frame: Day 0 up to Day 240 post-vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
All serious adverse events, including deaths and adverse events (AEs) of special interest (Guillain Barre Syndrome, Bell’s Palsy, encephalitis/myelitis, optic neuritis, Stevens Johnson Syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis) were collected.

What is a Serious Adverse Event?
Death
Report if you suspect that the death was an outcome of the adverse event, and include the date if known.
Life-threatening
Report if suspected that the patient was at substantial risk of dying at the time of the adverse event, or use or continued use of the device or other medical product might have resulted in the death of the patient.
Hospitalization (initial or prolonged)
Report if admission to the hospital or prolongation of hospitalization was a result of the adverse event.
Emergency room visits that do not result in admission to the hospital should be evaluated for one of the other serious outcomes (e.g., life-threatening; required intervention to prevent permanent impairment or damage; other serious medically important event).
Disability or Permanent Damage
Report if the adverse event resulted in a substantial disruption of a person’s ability to conduct normal life functions, i.e., the adverse event resulted in a significant, persistent or permanent change, impairment, damage or disruption in the patient’s body function/structure, physical activities and/or quality of life.

Immunogenicity of High-dose Inactivated, Split-virion Influenza Vaccine Versus Standard Fluzone Vaccine in the Elderly

Safety Information
The most common local and systemic adverse reactions to Fluzone High-Dose vaccine include pain, erythema, and swelling at the injection site; myalgia, malaise, headache, and fever. Other adverse reactions may occur. Fluzone High-Dose vaccine should not be administered to anyone with a known hypersensitivity (eg, anaphylaxis) to any vaccine component, including egg protein, or to a previous dose of any influenza vaccine.
If Guillain-Barre syndrome has occurred within 6 weeks following previous influenza vaccination, the decision to give Fluzone High-Dose vaccine should be based on careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks. Vaccination with Fluzone High-Dose vaccine may not protect all individuals.
Before administering Fluzone High-Dose vaccine, please see accompanying full Prescribing Information.

New polio-like virus C105 causing paralysis in children across the US, with 100 cases in 34 states

A new strain of a polio-like virus is believed to be behind the alarming cases of paralysis reported in children across the US.

The virus called enterovirus C105 belongs to the same polio family of viruses and could be causing the paralysis. Some other viruses are also in the suspect list.

The condition, known as acute flaccid myelitis, leads to muscle weakness or paralysis of arms or legs and has been seen in 100 cases in 34 states.

Initially, a virus called enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) which causes respiratory illness was suspected to be causing the disease but with very few children testing positive for the virus, researchers were looking for other candidates as well.

A six-year-old girl with the acute flaccid myelitis symptoms tested positive for the C105 virus which was found in her respiratory tract.

Symptoms that began with a cold and fever left the child with arm pain that finally led to paralysis. The girl tested negative for EV-D68.

The study should make researchers aware that there is another virus out there that has this association with paralysis, said study co-author Dr Ronald Turner, a professor of paediatrics at the University Of Virginia School Of Medicine. “We probably shouldn’t be quite so fast to jump to enterovirus D68 as the [only] cause of these cases,” Turner told Live Science.

Hard to detect

The virus, being a new find as also adept at genetic variations, can be hard to detect, he said.

“The presence of this virus strain in North America may contribute to the incidence of flaccid paralysis and may also pose a diagnostic challenge in clinical laboratories,” the researchers said in their study, to be published in the October issue of the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases.

However, the study does not prove conclusively the new virus causes paralysis as its presence was detected only in the respiratory tract and not in the spinal cord.

A virus in the respiratory tract may not necessarily cause paralysis, the researchers say.

A global initiative to eradicate poliomyelitis through routine vaccination has brought down the number of cases by more than 99% in 30 years, from an estimated 350,000 cases in 1988 to 650 reported cases in 2011. But major epidemics are still occurring.

More recently, researchers have traced polio outbreaks in the Republic of Congo to two genetic mutations in the virus.
