GlaxoSmithKline's new flu vaccine Fluarix was approved Wednesday for sale in the
USA this fall under an accelerated FDA approval process. Another flu vaccine manufacturer,
Chiron, moved closer to getting their license back; it was suspended when their
flu vaccine was found to be contaminated with bacteria.
Chiron's license was suspended by British regulators in October, and the FDA
barred U.S. distribution of the vaccine, cutting the nation's expected supply
of flu vaccine in half.
GlaxoSmithKline expects to distribute 8 million doses of Fluarix and will begin
shipping immediately. Chiron, if its vaccine is re-approved, could supply 18
million to 26 million doses of Fluvirin.

your children and you to this well documented neurotoxic poison?

In fact, hatters in England went insane with astonishing frequency a couple

that it has been tested in a laboratory and shown not to contain detectable
levels of mercury and other toxins. To get your vital omega-3 fatty acids, eat
high quality fish oil instead. This will also, incidentally, help keep you from
getting the flu.
