251 Children.

that's right 251 children have reported adverse reactions to the flu vaccination in Western Australia.
One child just a year old is probably brain dead laying in a hospital.

I am angry. Brisbane knew about the danger of this vaccination weeks ago and yet did not report anything. A child died there on the 9th of April following her seasonal flu vaccination and there were numerous adverse reactions that were brought into the hospital too.

Where is the media coverage?
There are children dying at the hand of the government and health officials. Where does this madness stop? Why does the government's website say NOTHING about halting flu vaccinations for under 5's?

and isn't this amazing:

CSL Profits From Swine Flu
ABC February 17, 2010
CSL's half-year earnings have swelled after it reaped $160 million from sales of the swine flu vaccine. The Melbourne-based biotechnology company posted a 23 per cent rise in net profit to $617 million for the first half of the financial year.
That was well above the market's expectations for a profit of between $510 and $547 million dollars. It says the strength in swine flu vaccine sales was partly offset by a $66 million slide in sales of the cervical cancer vaccine, Gardasil. It is delivering an interim dividend of 35 cents per share, up 17 per cent from the same period a year earlier. CSL says its full-year net profit is expected to be at the top end of its previous forecasts, of between $970 million and $1.07 billion.

I'm going to go hold my babies a bit tighter today. We are a sad nation for letting this happen - and it scares me.
