The GlaxoSmithKlein website admits to what I consider a rather high reporting of side effects in recipients. So here are some of the “choice” statements:
A protective immune response may not be elicited in all vaccinees.
There is very limited experience in children between 3 and 9 years of age and no experience in children less than 3 years of age or in children and adolescents between 10 and 17 years.
There are no data on administration of AS03-adjuvanted vaccines before or following other types of influenza vaccines intended for pre-pandemic or pandemic use.
Antibody response in patients with endogenous or iatrogenic immunosuppression may be insufficient.
There are no data on co-administration of Pandemrix™ (H1N1) with other vaccines. It is recommended that if co-administration with another vaccine is considered, immunisation should be carried out on separate limbs and it should be noted that the adverse reactions may be intensified.
There are currently no data available on the use of Pandemrix™ (H1N1) in pregnancy. Data from pregnant women vaccinated with >>> different <<< (NOTICE DIFFERENT! and NON ADJUVANTED!!!) inactivated non-adjuvanted seasonal vaccines do not suggest malformations or foetal or neonatal toxicity.
Oh, but wait, it gets even better, depending on what you call acceptable:
Clinical trials with the mock-up vaccine have evaluated the incidence of adverse reactions in approximately 5000 individuals 18 years old and above who received formulations containing A/Vietnam/1194/2004 (H5N1) strain with at least 3.75 µg HA/AS03.
Very common disorders (>=1/10) included headache; arthralgia and myalgia; induration, swelling, pain and redness at site of injection; fever and fatigue).
Common disorders (>=1/100 to <1/10) included lymphadenopathy, ecchymosis at the injection site, sweating increased;, shivering, influenza-like illness, injection site reactions (such as warmth, pruritus).
Uncommon disorders (>=1/1000 to <1/100) included insomnia; paraesthesia, somnolence and dizziness; gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhoea, vomiting, abdominal pain, nausea;, pruritus, rash and malaise.
AND last , but NOT least, YES! we have renal issues and good old Guillain–Barré, to top it off.
From post-marketing surveillance with interpandemic trivalent vaccines, uncommon adverse reactions reported included generalised skin reactions including urticaria. Rare adverse reactions included neuralgia, convulsions and transient thrombocytopenia. Allergic reactions, in rare cases leading to shock, have been reported. Very rare adverse reactions included vasculitis with transient renal involvement and neurological disorders, such as encephalomyelitis, neuritis and Guillain Barré syndrome. http://health.gsk.com/hcp/H1N1Vaccine/safety.htm
And they are pushing it like fury? After knowing this, they are STILL targeting pregnant women AND children! Oh, and people with compromised immune systems. Now if THAT isn’t tantamount to careless contempt of Public Safety, I am not sure just what is.
I owe Jonathan Elinoff, VaccinationEducation, for the tip on this information.
