Bringing the wellness of tomorrow,
On October 5th, the first H1N1
(Swine) Flu vaccine, MedImmune's
FluMist Nasal Spray, will be
available to the US public. After
reviewing the package
insert, there were two issues
that gave us reason to pause.
1. The ingredients include
monosodium glutamate (MSG), sucrose,
and the antibiotic gentamycin.
2. Shockingly, we copied this
directly from the package insert:
"FluMist contains live,
attentuated influenza viruses that
must infect and replicate in cells
lining the nasopharynx of the
recipient to induce immunity.
Vaccine viruses capable of infection
and replication can be cultured from
nasal secretions obtained from
vaccine recipients. The
relationship of viral replication in
a vaccine recipient and transmission
of vaccine viruses to other
individuals has not been
Why would government health
officials choose FluMist to be
distributed first when the
transmission of the live virus from
vaccine recipients to others has not
been established? Even if there is a
remote possibility that the live
virus in FluMist could infect others
in close proximity, shouldn't we be
reticent? How do you feel about
your thoughts here.
