Baxter Pharmaceutical Mixed Avian Flu with Flu Vaccine

This is a story that most likely will not see light of day on America MSM, but is currently making news in Canada and around the world.

Baxter, an International pharmaceutical company based in America, has just been caught mixing live Avian Flu virus (H5N1) with common flu virus, in a flu vaccine. Baxter International’s research facility in Orth-Donau Austria was the facility that shipped the contaminated flu vaccine to other facilities in the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Germany. The incident was discovered by a technician in a facility in the Czech Republic, who injected ferrets with the vaccine as a normal test procedure. The ferrets died. 

Let that sink in.

If not discovered by a mid-level technician, many of the people immunized with the Baxter vaccine might have been infected with avian flu, which can be deadly. 

But it’s worse than that. 

H5N1 is not easily transmissible between people. However, the common flu virus that it was mixed with does easily infect people. The real danger in this incident is that the two viruses could have mixed genetic material and mutated when injected into tens of thousands of people, and could have created a hybrid virus that was both deadly, and transmissible.

Now, will Baxter be investigated? They just got caught releasing a Level-3 Bio-Hazard with a potential to sicken and even kill people. It's being covered by the Canadian and European press and yet we're not hearing a word about this here.

The world just averted a possible health care catastrophe. But, just because they've been caught, they have not been stopped. And like 9/11, as long as these people are left unpunished, they will not stop - until we stop them.

The optimum word in that last sentence being “we”. No one else is going to save us.

Oh, there will be those that step forward to take the first volleys, but the real heroes will be those that stand-up behind them and pick-up the mantle. There have been many already, their names known and unknown. Their sacrifice not unnoticed nor in vain.

For right now, that hero is one mid-level technician that simply did his job, and by doing such, saved lives, and may have bought us some time.
