Australia orders 21 mn swine flu vaccines
AFP/ PTI / Sydney July 14, 2009, 12:45 IST

Quote:
Australia ordered 21 million courses of swine flu vaccine today, enough to cover the country's entire population, as the World Health Organization (WHO) warned the pandemic was "unstoppable".


With Australia already the worst-hit nation in the Asia-Pacific region, federal chief medical officer Jim Bishop expressed concern that the "hard-edged" virus was now infecting young and healthy people.

He added Australia hoped to launch a major immunisation program in October to combat the progress of the virus, which has hit more than 9,000 people and been linked to 19 deaths...

They think we are going to flock to the vaccine, hence the over the top media attention. What they dont know is that most Aussies will tell them to stick up their a*s.

No Compulsory Vaccination

The Australian Vaccination Network, Australia's nationwide pro-information and pro-choice vaccination organisation, has established this blog in an effort to fight against any moves within the government, medical community and the general population to enforce any form of compulsory vaccination. This will be a place to distribute information and ideas on this subject.
Peace and Good Will!

Swine flu mums on life support
SNIPPET from Sydney Morning Herald

Up to six new mothers infected with swine flu were on life support yesterday after giving birth prematurely because the virus was threatening their babies.

The women, all from Sydney's Western suburbs, are fighting for their lives. At least two of the babies are also in intensive care after suffering respiratory problems.
***(Resp problems are not unusual for premature babes. The article does not reference the respiratory problems as being a cause of the virus however it is implied)

Quote:
Another two women were in intensive care at Westmead Hospital but were yet to give birth.
***(Seems these two women are no longer in intensive care)

Pregnancy reduces a woman's immunity

and her capacity to breathe properly because of the compression of her lungs by the foetus.

Also mentioned in this article :

A 32 year old South Australian man with a pre-existing major medical condition and a Queensland woman described as in the "vulnerable group" died yesterday after contracting swine flu.

Australian swine flu cases have exceeded 10,000 including 692 in WA. Nationally 149 are in hospital with swine flu including 58 in intensive care.
***(I wonder if any Politicians have been infected with swine flu, especially with the amount of oversees travel they do? Don't seem to be mentioned in any papers so I guess not. Anyone here in Australia hear of any pollies coming down with it?)

Quote:
"Mostly the people who are being hospitalized are those with other underlying health conditions." Ms Roxon said. "We do see that there are some people who are young and otherwise healthy who have rapidly deteriorating disease".

University of WA research, using computer modelling, predicts that one in four people could contract swine flu without a broad vaccination program or anti-viral drugs.

The World Health Organisation says a Swine flu vaccine would not be available for at least two months.
***Strange how those pregnant women were all in the same area.

Australia starts 1st swine flu vaccine trials

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090722/...alia_swine_flu

By TANALEE SMITH, Associated Press Writer Tanalee Smith, Associated Press Writer – Wed Jul 22, 7:24 am ET

ADELAIDE, Australia – The world's first human trials of a swine flu vaccine have begun in Australia, drug company officials said Wednesday, with the aim of controlling the virus that has so far killed more than 700 worldwide.

Two biotechnology companies have started injecting adult volunteers in the southern city of Adelaide with their vaccines. Adelaide-based Vaxine began trials Monday with 300 subjects, and Melbourne's CSL has 240 people in its seven-month trial, which started Wednesday. The companies say their trials are the first tests of a swine flu vaccine on humans.

At least 41 people have died in swine flu-related illness in Australia, which is well into its winter flu season.

"We're in the southern hemisphere, and that is where the problem is right now," Vaxine research director Nikolai Petrovsky told The Associated Press. "The demand was here yesterday. We're right in the middle of a surge of swine flu cases where perhaps the United States won't have to worry about it as much until their flu season hits in six months."

Australia had confirmed 14,703 cases of swine flu as of Wednesday. The worldwide death toll from swine flu is more than 700, according to the World Health Organization, which recently stopped counting the number of cases worldwide. An explosion of cases is predicted in September and October, when students and workers in the northern hemisphere return from summer vacation.

CSL expects that initial results will allow distribution of its government-funded vaccine in October. The federal government has already ordered 21 million doses of CSL's vaccine for use in Australia, should it be proven to work.

"We have a specific vaccine that we believe will be able to protect millions of people against this new H1N1 flu," Andrew Cuthbertson, CSL's director of research and development, told reporters. He called swine flu "a novel strain of influenza" and said the trial would determine the dose and schedule of the vaccination.

Vaxine's Petrovsky said it would be six to eight weeks before results would verify whether a vaccine was effective.

"There is no guarantee any of these vaccines will work," he said. "Swine flu is a very peculiar beast, its a very different virus that we're dealing with. But we are hopeful."

Medical experts warned against rushing the vaccines through trials.

"I think it's important for the public to know that they're going to get a safe and effective vaccine," Andrew Pesce, president of the Australian Medical Association, told Sky News television. "No one will give anybody brownie points for putting out a vaccine that didn't work or caused harm."
