Swine flu manufacturers have now been granted legal immunity in case something goes wrong that causes side effects associated with the vaccine. Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services signed a document making federal officials and vaccine makers immune from lawsuits related to any ill effects from the swine flu vaccine.
Fears about the effects of a novel swine flu vaccine have sparked much discussion. A swine flu outbreak among soldiers at Fort Dix, N.J in 1974 resulted in vaccinations that caused side effects including Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a condition that causes paralysis. The result was thousands of lawsuits.
Stephen Sugarman, a law professor who specializes in product liability at the University of California at Berkeley says, “The government paid out quite a bit of money”, following past swine flu vaccination side effects.
Most cases of swine flu have been mild. The WHO has stopped tracking cases. No one knows how many infections have really occurred, because not everyone seeks treatment.

Who will cover the bill if someone in your family becomes injured from this vaccine. There will be no damage compensation from the pharmaceutical companies. Ask if your insurance company covers vaccine damage. Women make sure that you do not get this vaccine during or right before menstruation.
