Major recall of H1N1 Flu Vaccine in Canada

Note: I mentioned this recall to a guy in a local convenience store - just chit-chatting - he asked "How in the hell is it possible for there only to be problems in Canada and not elsewhere if it's the same antidote?"
Hmmmm - good question.

" GlaxoSmithKline has advised doctors in Canada to stop using a batch of its swine flu vaccine, amid reports of severe side-effects in some patients.
The batch of some 170,000 doses was put on voluntary hold because of a reported higher than usual number of patients having anaphylactic reactions.
This may include breathing problems, raised heart rate and skin rashes.
The pharmaceutical company said it had advised that one lot of the Arepanrix vaccine should not be used."

Note: I suppose Canadians are genetically different from Americans where I don't see anything about a recall. In America, where our government covers up torture - why in the world would anyone think same government would serve as a good watchdog to keep your drug provider from poisoning you? Just think about it - more illness = more money for pharmaceutical providers.

Also: I stated previously I wouldn't take this flu shot simply based on the character of those advising the public - I'm glad I didn't take the flu shot.
