Tim, please tell us more about the possible pandemic.
We’re actually a little overdue.
One of the leading candidates is H7N9. 40% mortality rate.
Believed to be only one or two genetic changes away from transmitting efficiently in humans.
They said it goes in cycles and we are due. Last one was 2009, before that it was 1968, and before that 1958. 2011 was a real light year as far as deaths go.
It means that the vaccine produced did not match the predicted strains that circulated in the US. It's a crap shoot when those smart people predict what will circulate in the US. Usually the vaccination is a mix of more than one virus. H1N1 is still in the seasonal mix.
No time to worry about the flu, I’m still in full hurricane anxiety mode. Sept. is traditionally the worst month of the entire year and it’s coming...
The 1918 flu pandemic caused by H1N1 is believed to be the worst in history. Killed mostly young people by inducing a
“cytokine storm.” Basically it’s a hyper immune response that damages the victims own tissues.
Here’s some trivia for you. CAP
accidentally sent out samples of the 1958 strain to various hospitals as part of their competency testing.
Once the mistake was realized, labs were notified (including ours) to incinerate or autoclave their samples. Luckily there were no mishaps.
There is also a HUGE number of peer reviewed studies that say climate change is real and man is the cause.
Just because things are peer reviewed doesn't mean it's right. Peer review in some cases, like man made climate change, is just an echo chamber where some morons tell other morons they are right.
That being said vaccines cause autism LOL
They may be right, but after hearing that for the last five or six years, no one listens to em any more.
If I remember the year right, they hit a fevered pitch in 2017 and it wasn't a very big year. I kind of believe them but I'm tired of hearing it every stinking year.
Bizarre. Studies on vaccines and autism have no political component unlike climate change where people want to produce an outcome that suits their ideology.
Are you being serious or kidding about vaccines and autism? If you actually think vaccines cause autism, it's useless discussing it with you. It's certainly established science that there is no link between vaccines and autism. Don
That's is something I can do without
I thought the LOL at the end of that sentence would be enough to convey my thoughts on vaccines causing autism but apparently not so to make it clear to you, no vaccines do not cause autism and I find it funny people think they do.
As to your other point politics isn't the only reason for peer review echo boxes, just the best example. I bet if you try not so hard you will also find peer reviewed studies saying vaccines do cause autism.
Just saying that because a study is peer reviewed doesn't really mean squat.

Eventually they are bound to be right. Actually they are right, they just have no way to predict when.
Relax, it’s not even breathing hard.
I thought you were joking but it's not always certain when you don't see the person and/or hear the inflection in the voice.
As to peer reviews, the validity depends on the qualifications and objectivity of the reviewers. Don
I know, and fingers crossed, it’s looking like we will very likely escape August without a significant storm this year.
But...we still have two months of Summer left and mid-late September is generally the killer.
Is there a risk of getting the flu vaccine too early?
They said the 4 month immunity was seen mostly in older folks. There was no clear age sets. They also said previous vaccinations help prolong the immunity and make it work better.
