Hi Helen, thanks for posting it. Yes, a very good example of complete incompetence and not following science e.g. rolling out a national vaccine before knowing how deadly it was (or wasn’t, in this case), and giving out untested vaccines to millions of people - ludicrous!
However, I don’t think anyone can compare the 1976 US swine flu vaccine rollout with covid-19, when covid-19 was killing 1,000 people a day in the UK,and 2,400 people a day in the US at one point. Also, this time all the vaccine makers have published their trials.
It gets tricky with compensation for injury. For example, this case seems, at first look, to be genuine, but the US Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke state that around 2 in every 100,000 people in the US get Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), so it may be difficult to know which are caused by the vaccine and deserve compensation versus which cases aren’t.
I think the lesson here is that it wasn’t a conspiracy - it was plain stupidity (and possibly just for one person to advance his career).
Moreover, it was discovered and reported by the ‘mainstream’ media.
