What Ingredients are in the H1N1 "Swine Flu" Vaccine? (Yes, Intranasal Contains Live H1N1 Virus)(Updated as of 09/21/2011)


**UPDATE (September 21, 2011) - For the 2011-2012 flu vaccine ingredients, please check out my latest article Flu Vaccine Ingredients & Package Inserts for FDA-Approved Vaccines in USA (2011-2012). Just like in 2010-2011 season, the flu vaccine for the 2011-2012 season will also include the H1N1.

**UPDATE (October 25, 2010) - The 2010 seasonal flu vaccine will include the 2009 H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine. See also: FLASHBACK: H1N1 "Swine Flu" Virus To Be Included in 2010-2011 Seasonal Flu Vaccine. For the FDA official page on the 2010 seasonal flu vaccine, please click here.

**UPDATE: The following link will take you to a spreadsheet that lists some of the main ingredients in the H1N1 vaccine in each country --> the H1N1 "Swine Flu" Vaccine Ingredient List (Spreadsheet)

The FDA has released package inserts for the five (5) approved H1N1 "swine flu" vaccines in the United States of America. You can read this list at H1N1 "Swine Flu" Vaccine Package Inserts (GSK, CSL, Novaris, Sanofi & MedImmune) or by going to the FDA official website and checking the approved product package inserts for GlaxoSmithKline (**approved by FDA on November 10, 2009**), CSL Limited, Novaris Vaccines and Diagnostics Ltd., Sanofi Pasteur Inc. & MedImmune, LLC. The television news program 60 Minutes recently did a report on the H1N1 vaccine, including a visit to Sanofi Pasteur's vaccine production facility showing how the vaccine is made. For a much better version of how the vaccine is made, please watch the video at the end of this article!


Watch CBS News Videos Online

But what this 60 Minutes report does not tell you is that the vaccines contain some combination of thimerosal (mercury), gelatin (processed pigskins) and/or formaldehyde, and that Sanofi Pasteur's vaccine was first approved in the year 1980. How is this possible when the H1N1 did not first appear in its current form until 2009?

There have been numerous adverse reactions to the H1N1 vaccine throughout the world. You can read a compilation of these vaccine reaction articles at Adverse Reactions to the H1N1 "Swine Flu" Vaccine (Numerous Reports).

Also, don't forget that MedImmune's Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine Live, Intranasal will contain LIVE H1N1 "SWINE FLU" VIRUS.

Each 0.2 mL dose contains 106.5-7.5 FFU of the LIVE attenuated influenza virus reassortant of the pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus: A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)v.


UNITED KINGDOM / KINGDOM OF SWEDEN / KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA
1. If you live across the pond in either the United Kingdom or the Kingdom of Sweden, GSK's Pandemrix has been approved for use or here. The package insert can be reviewed by clicking this sentence. Pandemrix is one of our previously discussed "EU666" (Regulatory/Status Index) vaccines, and the vaccine contains thimerosal, live H1N1 and squalene adjuvants.

2. There have been over 350 cases of side effects and five (5) deaths reported in the Kingdom of Sweden as a result of the Pandemrix H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine shot.

3. The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) has also given a positive opinion to the Novartis A(H1N1) Pandemic Influenza vaccine Focetria®. This vaccine is hyped by Novartis as containing the MF59® squalene adjuvant. Focetria® is also listed as one of the US666 biodefense stockpile H5N1 avian flu vaccines.

4. Saudi Arabia has ordered 10,000,000 doses of GSK's Pandemrix™ as the Kingdom prepares for the Haj pilgrimage.


FRANCE (FRENCH REPUBLIC)
The French drug agency Afssaps (Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des produits de santé) granted marketing authorization in France on November 16, 2009 for Panenza®, its non-adjuvanted Influenza A(H1N1) 2009 monovalent vaccine, produced at Sanofi Pasteur’s facility in Val de Reuil, France. You can read the Panenza package insert by clicking here for the original French version or translated into English.


SWITZERLAND/SWISS CONFEDERATION
The approved H1N1 "swine flu" vaccines in Switzerland are Celtura, Focetria and Pandemrix. Celtura was just approved by Swissmedic, the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products (on November 13, 2009. Obviously, any alleged problems getting Celtura approved by the Swiss government were resolved by Novartis. You can read Celtura's official package insert and product information sheet by clicking here, or here for Focetria, or here for Pandemrix.

The package insert for Celtura is in another language that I am too ignorant to know. I believe the language may be German. Here is an English summary of some of Celtura's ingredients and it will contain the MF59® squalene adjuvant.


IRELAND
The approved vaccines for Ireland per the Irish Medicines Board are Pandemrix and CELVAPAN. You can read the package inserts for each of the aforementioned vaccines by clicking the respective links.


CANADA
For my Maple Leaf brothers and sisters in Canada, you can check out the Canadian approved H1N1 vaccine Arepanrix™ by clicking this sentence. Yes, Arepanrix™ contains thimerosal, adjuvants and formaldehyde. Viewers who want to bypass my random babbling talk can read the official Arepanrix™ product information leaflet at Health Canada right here. The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority has reported two (2) bad reactions to the H1N1 vaccine in the city. A Quebec woman died recently from the H1N1 after receiving the vaccination.


AUSTRALIA
And if you're living down under in Australia, then your approved H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine is called Panvax® (as one commenter below has already mentioned). You can read the Panvax® product information sheet by clicking this sentence. Panvax® has thimerosal and H1N1 virus, but does not appear to contain adjuvants or formaldehyde.


SOUTH KOREA/REPUBLIC OF KOREA
The approved A/H1N1 vaccine for South Korea is called Green Flu-S by the Korea Green Cross Corporation. I have not been able to find an official list of ingredients for this particular vaccine, so if anyone has a link to an official document, please let me know. However, it is likely that the Green Flu-S will contain many of the same ingredients such as thimerosal and possibly adjuvants as the other vaccines cited on here. The Korea Green Cross Corporation recently opened a large vaccine manufacturing plant in Hwasun, Jeollanam-do, and it will use many of the same processes that other worldwide manufacturers use. Recently, five (5) people died after receiving the seasonal flu vaccine in South Korea.


STATE OF JAPAN
I am little late adding Japan to the mix, but I don't speak Japanese so that makes it difficult to navigate some of the State's websites. Nevertheless, Reuters reported that Japan purchased its batch of H1N1 "swine flu vaccines from British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline and Swiss maker Novartis. The article does not state which GSK vaccine it will be, but I will assume that it is Pandemrix, because GSK seems to sell that brand worldwide. The Novartis vaccine appears to be Focetria® (see this document for possible evidence) which contains the MF59 squalene adjuvant.


Readers who think this Remixx World! author is all over the place with his convoluted, undisciplined writing style can watch this video by We Are Change Los Angeles that interviews people who are about to receive the H1N1 vaccination and lists many of the vaccine ingredients in the end credits or you can read an article called Special Report: Is a vaccine an answer to swine flue (sp)? from the Planet News in Jackson Hole, Wyoming by Jake Nichols. Nichols summarizes this whole swine flu pandemic in a much better literary way than I ever could, so check it out. Quoted below is one (1) paragraph from the Nichols article describing how the H1N1 "swine flu" vaccines are made.

The shot form of vaccine is made by growing the virus in chicken eggs. New research is currently being explored that will use canine [dog] kidney cells, insect eggs, and human retina cells (possibly from aborted fetal tissues?). In 2005, the Bush administration allocated more than $7 billion to pharmaceutical companies for the production of these ‘cell line’ factories. The virus is rendered inert by either the addition of formalin (an aqueous solution of formaldehyde) or by exposure to UV rays. The current swine flu vaccine used both methods to deactivate the virus...

Many pregnant women are reporting miscarriages soon after receiving the H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine (read the comments). Could the toxic ingredients in this vaccine be causing these women to lose their babies?

For a full summary of all the H1N1 swine flu articles and resources, click this sentence.


***Original Article Begins Here***

It is quite refreshing to see print newspapers finally covering this H1N1 "swine flu" hype. In case you are just joining us, the H1N1 "swine flu" first popped up in Mexico back in April. After an initial hype where it seemed like the "swine flu" was the next Black Plague, the mainstream media suddenly stopped covering H1N1 except for saying that it would return in the fall in a much worse way.

Since that time, governments started setting up experimental programs throughout the United States and worldwide, despite the fact that experimental vaccines are killing people. The W.H.O. declared a worldwide Phase 6 pandemic in June, which is the highest possible phase. The U.S. government then said it would have a vaccine ready by October to inoculate the masses, despite the obvious risks from experimental vaccines. Further, the vaccine makers have been given immunity, so if the vaccine kills or disables you, tough luck!

Check the ingredients in this H1N1 vaccine, and you will see that it will contain many of the same ingredients such as squalene, thimerosal (a/k/a mercury) and cancer cells from animals that have all negatively affected thousands with toxic ingredients in the past vaccines. Mercury destroys brain cells like a nuclear bomb going off in a populated city. Squalene is not much better, because it causes autoimmune diseases that permanently cripple and kill people. Vaccines used in trials by Novartis contain MF59®, a squalene adjuvant.

The original article "What's in the Flu Shot?" from the Lake County Bee has been archived. You can try to retrieve the article by clicking this sentence.

However, there are many reputable doctors who say vaccines simply do not work, period. In fact, historically there are many instances of massive outbreaks of disease after mass vaccinations and there are many more health problems that occur commonly than simply getting the disease vaccinated against. Some of these problems are serious, even deadly. It is becoming common knowledge, for example, that the current wave of autism in America is directly linked to vaccinations that contain thimerisol, a form of mercury.

And high-dose mercury is not the only additive in the new flu vaccinations. Besides injecting live flu virus directly into yours and your child's body, these shots will also contain "adjuvants," to make the virus supply for the shots go farther. One of the adjuvants will probably be "squalene." This is a naturally occurring substance found throughout the human body, and might be harmless if you drank it. But when it is injected, several of the doctors in the references below, believe it will cause the body to produce antibodies which will produce autoimmune diseases in many and compromise their quality of life permanently, and they believe many will die. This is in addition to spreading the very pandemic that has been predicted, not from getting the virus naturally, but from getting the virus by direct injection. That, in turn, will give the government a perfect excuse for measures that WHO mandates in their procedures, including incarceration for anyone attempting to refuse the shots (probably three per person), and the use of deadly force, if necessary.

***End of Original Article***

UPDATE (September 11, 2009): If this experimental H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine is like the current approved H5N1 bird flu vaccine, then the H1N1 vaccine will also contain formaldehyde and porcine gelatin (a/k/a pig skin).

Here is what the FDA says about the current approved H5N1 bird flu vaccine.

Influenza Virus Vaccine, H5N1, is a clear and slightly opalescent suspension formulated to contain 90 μg hemagglutinin (HA) per 1.0 mL dose of the influenza virus strain A/Vietnam/1203/2004 (H5N1, clade 1). Porcine gelatin (500 μg/dose) is added as a stabilizer. Thimerosal, a mercury derivative, is added as a preservative. Each 1.0 mL dose is formulated to contain not more than 98.2 μg thimerosal (approximately 50 μg mercury/dose). Each dose may also contain residual amounts of formaldehyde (not more than 200 μg), Polyethylene Glycol p-Isooctylphenyl Ether (not more than 0.05%), and sucrose (not more than 2.0%).

The National Organic Standards Board Technical Advisory Panel Review, Compiled by Organic Materials Review Institute for the USDA National Organic Program had this to say about the pork gelatin or porcine gelatin that is included in this bird flu vaccine.

Acid Pretreatment Process or Porcine Gelatin (Type A Gelatin)

Acid pretreatment is invariably used for porcine gelatin. Pigskins are first dehaired, usually by a combination of steam, rubber paddles, and flame (Farmer, et al., 1982). The pigskins may then be degreased by various methods, such as centrifuged in a rotating drum heated with steam to temperatures between 60° and 65° C. or approximately 150°-160°F. (Hinterwaldner, 1977a). Petroleum-based solvents such as tetrachloroethylene (TCE) may also be used to degrease animals, but this is less common than steam and mechanical methods because of safety and environmental issues (Norris, 1982). Hydrogen peroxide may be used to remove grease passed through a chopper or macerator to cut the skin into uniform sizes (Keenan, 1994). The skins are then soaked at a pH of 1 to 4 with a food-grade mineral acid such as hydrochloric (HCl), phosphoric (H3PO4), or sulfuric (H2SO4) acid for 8 to 30 hours (Hinterwaldner, 1977b; Keenan, 1994; Cole, 2000; Ledward, 2000). This treatment causes the material to swell to two to three times its pre-treatment volume (Ledward, 2000). The acid-treated pigskins are then washed with water to remove impurities. The skins are then extracted with hot water and the extract is filtered through an anion-cation exchange column to reduce ash or mineral levels. The gelatin extract is vacuum concentrated or ultra filtered to a concentration of between 15 and 35%, filtered, pH adjusted to between 3.5 and 6, evaporated to 50% solids, sterilized at temperatures between 248-303°F. for up to 13 seconds, chilled and extruded into noodles approximately 1/8 inch diameter, dried through a multi zone oven at 158°F., and milled to the specified particle size and packaged (Hinterwaldner, 1977a). Acid pretreatment is sometimes used for beef ossein, but this is relatively uncommon (Rose, 1990).

***

UPDATE (September 13, 2009): The latest reports from the media state that the H1N1 vaccine will not contain adjuvants -- at least the vaccines used in the studies did not contain adjuvants. However, I do not see any information saying whether the public's vaccine will contain adjuvants.

The vaccines in both studies didn’t use ingredients called adjuvants included by some countries in formulations to boost effectiveness. No serious side effects were reported, though the trials are too small to detect rare conditions. The shots are being studied further and will be closely monitored once vaccination campaigns begin, according to U.S. officials.

Is the removal of adjuvants a result of people's efforts communicating the potential dangers or is this a blatant lie put out to convince people the vaccine is safe? Even if you do decide to take the experimental vaccine or any vaccine whatsoever, ask the doctor to give you a copy of the vaccine's ingredient label and then research each bio-chemical on that label that you will shooting into your bloodstream for all infinity.

***

UPDATE (September 14, 2009): Vactruth has put up another H1N1 ingredient list. This blog has previously discussed all the mentioned ingredients in the Vactruth story except for nonoxynol-9.

What is nonoxynol-9?

It is an agent used in cleaning products, cosmetics and contraceptives. However, nonoxynol-9 has been shown to increase the risk of HPV cancer infection (See: The impact of the use of COL-1492, a nonoxynol-9 vaginal gel, on the presence of cervical human papillomavirus in female sex workers).

To see where Vactruth was able to determine the H1N1 ingredients, check out the parental consent form that is listed below by someone who registered for the experimental H1N1 "swine flu" vaccination program.

Good Blog. Glad to see that not everybody accepts whoever wants to shoot crap into their arm. Thanks for your commentary on the issue. I've shared this with my FB friends.

Well, the vaccine being used in the US is a mist that is sprayed into the nose. This is much safer and is comparable to how the flu is caught. In other words, it is more "natural" than getting an injection.

The vaccine in Australia, Panvax(r), is the injectable one. If you are allergic to eggs, do not get the Panvax(r) shot.

The mist also contains egg protein, but that is less dangerous IMHO than an injection.

It is all up to you though. I am in a high risk group as I have asthma and a weak immune system along with blood sugar problems, so I must either be vaccinated or take oseltamivir (Tamiflu(r)) if I come down with H1N1.

The amount of mercury in the injectable vaccine in Australia (50 micrograms) is equivalent to eating a can of tuna. It can cause allergic skin reactions in up to 2 percent of those injected.

Essy said...

I can't begin to list the inaccuracies in this blog, but suffice it to say that you have done a credible job in combining several false and propagandist claims into a fear-mongering piece. Well done. Among other inaccuracies, the H1N1 (which is SWINE flu not AVIAN or BIRD flu as you state earlier) uses exactly the same processes as the regular seasonal flu vaccine and therefore the process has been tested and monitored for years. Second, the injections will not have live virus, only the nasal spray will. The injectable vaccines for children and pregnant women, and the nasal spray have no thimerosal (mercury) at all. There are no 'public' vaccines that differ from what? 'private' vaccines?? The only FDA vaccines are the injectables (only killed viruses) and the nasal spray (weakened,live virus). We use gelatin for cooking. There are no adjuvants in any of the US H1N1 vaccines. And the amounts of other toxins that we get in our bodies by eating non-organic foods and using non-stick cooking pots and pans and drinking out of plastic bottles and cups . . . you would barely be able to see a microgram (ug) and your body is perfectly capable of processing that tiny amount. Try to get some advice from the experts before influencing people to not vaccinate and potentially doing far more harm than good. Oh, and vaccines don't work? So that's why we haven't had a small pox or mumps or polio outbreak in the last four decades.

The Moderator said...

@Essy, where did I ever say that the H1N1 was avian flu? Also, you are inaccurate. The H1N1 is not the swine flu virus that caused a government panic back in 1976. The 2009 H1N1 virus contains bits and pieces of human, swine and avian flu virus components, so perhaps you need to do some further research before you accuse this blog of being inaccurate. As for the live viruses, I distinctly said that the live virus is contained in the Intranasal, which is the nasal spray. As for public and private vaccines, you need to expand your boundaries beyond the USA. There are indeed public and private vaccines being given in Germany and probably in other jurisdictions as well. The private ones will not have the adjuvants and preservatives. The public ones will. Finally, there is a difference between injesting a toxin as opposed to injecting it directly into your bloodstream. If I ingest a toxic material, it is much easier for my body to process it through the body's various filtering organs as opposed to shooting it into the blood. There are no filters to eliminate a toxin when you shoot it directly into the blood. Your lack of knowledge about the components of the H1N1 virus does not make you a credible source, but thanks for playing!

MSG? That's a flavor enhancer. What's it doing in a vaccine? Are you sure your list is correct?

The Moderator said...

@Ron, go to page 13 of the package insert for the MedImmune, LLC intranasal vaccine at http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM182406.pdf and you will see that each 0.2 mL dose also contains 0.188 mg/dose monosodium glutamate.

Ok, thanks. Puzzling.

Hi! I am an American living in South Korea and we have been offered the swine flu vaccine for our child (6 years old) but have heard that the vaccine has been tested on only 475 adults. Do you have any information on how safe this Korean version of the vaccine is? I would appreciate any info, thanks

The Moderator said...

@Sarah, the company that makes the H1N1 swine flu vaccine in South Korea is called Green Cross. I am doing some research to see if I can find a link to the product information sheet that lists the vaccine ingredients. Here are some links about the company Green Cross. Once I find some more information, I will add it to the article. Thanks for reading.

Like people, pigs can get influenza (flu), but the swine flu virus flu virus does not like people. Swine flu is not often infecting humans, and the rare cases that have occurred in the past have mainly affected people who had direct contact with pigs. But the current outbreak of swine flu is different.
