The Associated Press: GlaxoSmithKline pulls swine flu vaccines in Canada

As if things were not bad enough they now have concerns for bad batches of H1N1 flu vaccine which may lead to more allergic reactions from the flu vaccinations that other batches.

Not only must we have concern overall for the effects of this vaccine but now we must contend with the fact that some doses are not the same as others. How do we know we are getting the right medic ine if each batch may be different?


The Associated Press: GlaxoSmithKline pulls swine flu vaccines in Canada: "Pharmaceuticals company GlaxoSmithKline PLC said Tuesday it has advised medical staff in Canada to not use one batch of swine flu vaccines in case they trigger life-threatening allergies.

Company spokeswoman Gwenan White said that they issued the advice after reports that one batch of the swine flu vaccine might have caused more allergic reactions than normal.

'We have advised health care professionals not to use that batch while health authorities and GlaxoSmithKline investigate,' she said.

White said the batch at issue, which has been distributed across Canada, contains 172,000 doses of the vaccine. She declined to say how many doses had been administered before the advice to stop using them was given."

  10. Hi,

    Nice post. It seems you are interested in travelling. I wonder whether you would be interested in travelling to India.

    If yes, then let me share the good experience that I had in India last year, thanks to this guy named Ranjan Chetry of http://www.triptuners.com.

    I usually do not travel abroad. Like everyone, I have my own issues. I dread being left in the middle of a populace that hardly shares anything with me except for a human body.

    Nevertheless, I gathered enough courage last year and decided to visit India on the assurance of my Indian friend that the travel agent is one of his most trusted agents. He advised me to visit the North-East India as they were very warm and innocent at heart. He said that Ranjan specialised in arranging trips to India’s North Eastern states.

    So I called Ranjan (Mobile: +919899371208) and got myself a fortnight long package. It was very cheap and probably cost 30-40 percent less than a similar costing trip to other regions of India.

    My itinerary included a visit to Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Dharmashala (where Dalai Lama lives), Ladakh and to the Kaziranga National park in Assam, notwithstanding a 2 day trip to the hilly capital city of Shillong. I must tell you that it was an experience of the lifetime.

    The sheer hospitality of the people of North-East India was overwhelming. For not a single moment did I feel lonely or insecure. I therefore recommend everyone to visit the North East India. It is rightly called a paradise unexplored.

    I have come to learn that Ranjan along with his few associates have come up with a website: http://www.triptuners.com. Take a look at the site. I might be useful for you if you plan to, or at least know somebody who is looking to spend a memorable time with his family, spouse or friends.
