Chiron Cleared To Make Vaccines Again

I posted a "warning shot" last month on my blog that Chiron was mounting a furious comeback in hopes of reopening its Liverpool manufacturing facility in the U.K. to begin producing vaccines for the American market.

Looks like the comeback has begun in earnest today. Chiron passed the latest regulatory hurdle in returning to its place as the primary manufacturer of vaccines in America when the British government lifted the suspension of its license to make Fluvirin. According to Britain's Department of Health, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) believes "satisfactory progress has been made in the manufacturing areas which had previously caused concern."

You may recall Chiron was charged with producing up to 14 million vaccines for the flu season now long past that were later found to be tainted, rendering them worthless. (And, that wasn't the first time either!)

Folks, multi-national corporations aren't responsible for protecting your family's health. You are! That's why I may sound like a broken record for repeating myself, but I can't urge you enough to check out the facts before you make a rash decision that could jeopardize your family's health. Nobody really needs a flu shot, particularly when they're laced with mercury.

And especially, when there's safer, healthier treatments to boost your immune system.
