Australia BANS All Seasonal Flu Vaccines for Kids, After Multiple Side Affects Showing up in Children !

Multiple side affects are showing up in children who have gotten the seasonal Flu vaccine in Australia - they have now banned giving any more vaccinations of it to kids. 

23 children in Western Australia, began convulsing immediately after getting the vaccine, one child is still in Coma in the hospital.

It has since been found out, that the problem had been reported 2 weeks before, but never looked into - so the numbers can be much greater than reported.  They are finding at least 60 children had adverse affects reported previously.

Then another 40 children had adverse affects it was found in other areas of Australia.

Now this is where it gets Good:

The Chief Medical Officer of Australia has this to say......

Commonwealth chief medical officer Jim Bishop issued a national warning to GPs not to use the vaccine followed a decision last night by the WA government to suspend the free vaccination program for children under five over concerns it was causing high fevers and convulsions.
"We suggest doctors and health professionals vaccinating children don't use the seasonal flu vaccine for the moment, until we can get the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to investigate this in more detail," Professor Bishop told ABC TV.
He said the concerns stemmed from a significant rise in the number of children developing a fever after receiving the vaccine.
"We need more information about what’s happened in WA, but also what we can now find out from all the other states from their experience," Professor Bishop said.
"If this has been brought up as a possible side-effect of this drug, then we ought to at least suspend its use until we know more."
In light of the seasonal flu shot suspension, Professor Bishop suggested children get vaccinated against swine flu instead, because that could be a health risk this winter too.
He said there did not appear to be any side effects from the swine flu vaccine Panvax.
"It is safe to have the swine flu vaccine," Professor Bishop said.
"The TGA's assessment of clinical trials and the advice of its expert committees is that Panvax is a safe, effective vaccine for prevention of the H1N1 influenza.
"It is expected that the dominant flu this winter season will be swine flu and the specific Panvax vaccine is available free for all Australians."

I guess, he has never looked into all the side affects from the Swine flu vaccine, it must just be a simple mistake on his part. 

Now is this the Same vaccine, the authorities in the U.S. plan on giving our children this year?
