Makers of the swine flu vaccine and involved government officials will be immune from any lawsuits arising from the vaccine. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius has signed a document guaranteeing that neither the government nor industry will take responsibility for any damage or death caused by these vaccines, which have had very limited testing and are being produced under rushed circumstances.
In the 1976 swine flu scare, only one person actually died from the swine flu while hundreds died from the vaccine and thousands were paralyzed. Watch a highly revealing CBS 60 Minutes clip at this link to learn more about this tragedy and the fear mongering, corruption, and manipulations that led to it. The pharmaceutical companies made billions of dollars as a result of that unnecessary mass vaccination campaign, yet at least the victims had their day in court.
Why isn't our government willing to have anyone take responsibility for these risky vaccines which the media is already promoting? What will happen if, like in 1976, more people are killed and injured by the vaccine than by the disease itself? Will those people and their families be simply out of luck?
Here's a quote from a recent MSNBC/Associate Press article discussing the immunity granted:
The last time the government faced a new swine flu virus was in 1976. Cases of swine flu in soldiers at Fort Dix, N.J., including one death, made health officials worried they might be facing a deadly pandemic like the one that killed millions around the world in 1918 and 1919. Federal officials vaccinated 40 million Americans during a national campaign. A pandemic never materialized, but thousands who got the shots filed injury claims, saying they suffered a paralyzing condition called Guillain-Barre Syndrome or other side effects.

How much do you trust our government and the pharmaceutical industry to do the right thing with swine flu vaccines? To understand the depth of corruption on the drug industry and the collusion of top politicians and even scientists, read a powerful essay by the former editor in chief of the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine at this link.
Remember the avian flu scare which received so much hype several years ago? Very few people died or were hospitalized, yet according to media reports, Donald Rumsfeld alone made $5 million on sales of Tamiflu, which were never needed at the time. Consider also that Adrian Gibbs, a scientist on the team that developed Tamiflu (the drug most recommended for the swine flu), submitted a report stating that swine flu may have been man-made. For more on this, click here. There are many questions regarding all of the fear hype around both the avian flu and swine flu. How much of this is a way of pumping money into the pockets of big pharma?
