This country has been in a national health emergency state for a few months now. The national public health emergency is now a national public emergency. This is simply just more fear mongering and hype. If this was a true health emergency, then Obama's order would have suspended all public sporting, entertainment and other events this weekend! Yet, I am watching the Florida at Mississippi State college football game right now with thousands of people in attendance.
I bet that we will soon see Pandemrix and Arepanrix being "approved" for use as an H1N1 "swine flu" vaccine. Currently, the approved U.S. vaccines do not contain adjuvants such as squalene, because they have not been approved. However, Obama's emergency order will likely mean that approval will not be necessary. If adjuvanted-vaccines are suddenly approved for H1N1 here in the United States, then you will know the true purpose of this National Emergency Declaration.
U.S. President Barack Obama has declared 2009 H1N1 swine flu a national emergency, the White House said on Saturday.
The declaration will make it easier for U.S. medical facilities to handle a surge in flu patients by allowing the waiver of some requirements of Medicare, Medicaid and other federal health insurance programs as needed, the White House said in a statement.
