Every day Americans wake up to news reports that warn us about the dangers of influenza, especially the new H1N1 “swine flu” and the need to roll up our sleeves and get vaccinated. We are witnessing a roll-out of the largest, most expensive mass vaccination campaign in the history of our nation. A rollout that is bigger than even the polio vaccine campaigns of the 1950's.
How much do you know about the disease or vaccine risks so you can make an informed decision about whether to get flu shots for yourself or your children?1
H1N1 “Swine Flu” Mild
First, the good news is that swine flu is mild for most people and the virus is not mutating into a more serious form. 2 By the end of September, there had been about 600 deaths in America including about 50 deaths in young children. Complications from infectious diseases like influenza are more common in people with heart, respiratory and other health problems and that is true for swine flu. 2
Limited Testing of Swine Flu Vaccines
Swine flu vaccines have been tested on only a few thousand healthy Americans for a few weeks. 3 There is little or no information about how safe the vaccine is for pregnant women and chronically ill or disabled children because only a handfull were part of the testing. Nobody will know how safe the vaccine really is until it is given to millions of Americans this year and next year.
Drive-By Flu Shots Risky
Swine flu vaccine is not just being given to children and adults in clinics and doctors offices but also in non-medical settings like pharmacies, stores, schools and even at drive-by kiosks. 4 5 Getting vaccinated in a non-medical setting can be risky. Driving a car immediately after getting vaccinated, when you could suffer an unexpected a shock collapse reaction can be deadly.
No Compensation For Swine Flu Victims
If you or your child are injured from getting a flu swine flu shot, you are on your own. Because Congress shielded the vaccine manufacturers and any person giving swine flu shots from lawsuits if people get hurt. 6 There is no funded government vaccine injury compensation program for swine flu vaccine.
Swine Flu Reactions: “It’s a Coincidence”
But even if there was a funded vaccine injury compensation program - like the one that had to be created by the federal government in 1976 after that year's swine flu vaccine paralyzed about 500 Americans and killed 25, there is little chance you would be compensated if you or your child does become vaccine injured.
Federal health officials are already pre-emptively warning Americans that most of the deaths and cases of brain inflammation, seizures, paralysis, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, strokes, heart attacks, miscarriages and other serious health problems that develop after swine flu vaccination will be considered a “coincidence” and not related in any way to the flu shots just given.7 8
Prevent Vaccine Injuries
This makes it even more important for Americans to become informed health care consumers. If you choose to get vaccinated and you or your child do suffer a health complication, insist that the health care worker who gave the shot immediately files a report with the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System. 9 If the person who gave the flu shot won't file a vaccine reaction report, you can file it yourself.
Do NOT let a doctor or anyone else tell you that a serious health problem you or your child experiences after vaccination is a coincidence and allow more shots to be given until you know for sure. The most tragic cases of vaccine injury occur when vaccine reaction symptoms are dismissed as a 'coincidence" and more vaccines are given that result in more severe symptoms and sometimes end with permanent brain and immune system damage or death.
Thimerosal in Multi-Dose Vials
Injectable flu shots in multi-dose vials contain the mercury preservative, thimerosal, and some come in single dose vials and do not contain mercury. If you get vaccinated, make sure you know what is in the vaccine you are getting because people can be very allergic to different components of vaccines. And some people can't get the live virus flu vaccine.
FOUR Flu Shots for Young Children?
Doctors are telling some children under 10 years old to get 3 to 4 flu shots this year - 2 shots for seasonal flu and one or two more for swine flu. 10 11 We have never given young children 3 to 4 flu shots in a single year and there is no information about how safe it is to do that.
Government Spend Billions On H1N1 Vaccine Program
Swine flu shots are free for most Americans because the government has given $1 billion dollars to pharmaceutical companies to create the new swine flu vaccines and has given another $5 billion dollars to state and federal health agencies to promote and deliver the influenza vaccines to people. 12 That is a lot of money. The push to get vaccinated is like nothing we have ever seen before.
Most People Recover From Swine Flu
The fact is: Millions of people around the world have recovered from swine flu and millions more will get sick with fevers, body aches, nasal congestion, cough and sometimes diarrhea and vomiting and recover from it this year and next year without any complications.
People who recover from influenza, including swine flu, get long lasting protection from the flu strain they recovered from. Actually, most people over 60 won't get swine flu this year because they recovered from influenza caused by a similar swine flu strain in the past and still have protective antibodies. 13
Just the Facts, Not the Hype
So, here are the facts:
All Vaccines Come With Side Effects: Weigh Risks
- The new swine influenza is mild for most people even though a small number have developed complications and died.
- The swine flu vaccine has been tested for only a few weeks on a few thousand healthy children and adults, including very few pregnant women. We don't know how safe it really is for pregnant women or children and adults with chronic illness even though they are being specially targeted for vaccination by government health officials.
- There is very little information about how safe it is to give swine flu vaccine with other vaccines, including seasonal influenza vaccine.
- There is very little information about whether the swine flu shot will keep you from getting swine flu.
All pharmaceutical products, including vaccines, come with side effects. The risk of having a vaccine reaction depends upon the vaccine you are getting; your personal and family medical history; whether you are sick or healthy at the time of vaccination; whether you are taking other medications; and whether you have reacted to vaccines before.
If you decide you or your children are going to get swine flu shots this year, you can learn more by visiting www.NVIC.org
If Your Child’s School Has Vaccine Clinics
And if you have a child, whose school is going to be holding vaccine clinics and you do NOT want your child to get vaccinated in school, you can take the following actions:
Number One: Write a letter to the school principal stating you do not want your child vaccinated in school without your written consent.
Number Two: Ask to be notified in advance exactly when the in-school vaccine clinics will be held.
Support NVIC, Get Red “NO VACCINE FOR ME” Bracelets
Number Three: Support NVIC and raise awareness in your community by giving your child a red NO VACCINE FOR ME bracelet to wear to school. And wear one yourself.

Health Workers Being Forced To Get H1N1 Vaccine
Right now, the government says that the swine flu vaccination program is voluntary. That nobody will be forced to get vaccinated. However, health care workers in New York and other states ARE being forced by law to get swine flu shots this year. 15 16
Will that be true for all of us next year? 17
Stand Up For Your Informed Consent Rights

New “WITHOUT CONSENT” Website Launched
Gary Matsumoto, an author and Emmy award winning investigative broadcast and print journalist, today launched the new media website WithoutConsent. Focusing on reactive squalene oil adjuvants used in H1N1 “swine flu” vaccines licensed in Europe, which drug companies are pressing the FDA to license in the U.S., Matsumoto’s web-based news outlet will contain original pay-per-download information that doesn’t get printed in the mainstream media.
Inside Information on H1N1 vaccine
“We will cover some of the same stories that you read in the usual outlets but we delve deeper and we read the fine print,” said Matsumoto. “In our inaugural newsletter we have something to tell you about the swine flu vaccination program that you should know. It could help protect you and your family.”
How Do the Numbers Stack Up?
The first newsletter, which contains referenced information from more than a decade of research into squalene adjuvants, Matsumoto includes facts and figures. To make a point, he asks “Did you know there is an illness called “Human Adjuvant Disease?” and “What links the numbers 3, 30, 46,000 and 900,000 to the swine flu vaccination program?”
What About Informed Consent?
- 9 is the number of diseases induced in lab animals by oil adjuvants;
- 30 is the number of scientific papers published in peer-reviewed journals that show the oil squalene, which is being used in H1N1 swine flu adjuvants, causes crippling diseases in animals inject with it;
- 46,000 is the approximate number of people enrolled in clinical trials around the world to test influenza vaccines containing squalene
- 900,000 is the number of Britons injected with a toxic oil advjuvant between 1963 and 1965 before the manufacturer voluntarily withdrew it from the market
Referring to the clinical trials of oil-adjuvanted H1N1 vaccines being given to healthy people around the world, Matsumoto said “Any health official failing to give this information to a person before vaccination with an adjuvant containing this oil has denied that person the capacity to give true informed consent. “ He added “You can’t make good decisions with bad information.”
Squalene is an Autotoxicant
Gary Matsumoto is the only reporter in the history of the U.S. Army Chemical School to complete a training course to decontaminate the nerve agents, sarin and VX, using the real thing. In 2002, he co-authored a scientific study “Squalene is an Autotoxicant Inducing Polyarthritis in Rats and Immunopathies in Man” with Michael Whitehouse and Frances W.J. Beck. Whitehouse and Beck discovered the toxicity of injected squalene while conducting research at UCLA Medical Center in the 1970s.
Two years later, Matsumoto published Vaccine A: The Covert Government Experiment That Killing Our Soldiers and Why GI’s Are Only the First Victims, which examined clinical evidence that American and British service members were injured after being injected with squalene-laced vaccines. It remains the only published book exposing the dangers posed by a new generation of experimental vaccines containing oil-based adjuvants.
Investigative Journalism Pro
Over the past 15 years, Gary Matsumoto has conducted investigations for Dateline NBC, NBC Nightly News, ABC World News Tonight, ABC Good Morning America, Fox News Channel, the Washington Post, Vanity Fair, Science magazine and Bloomberg News. He specializes in business, military affairs; and in health and science.
His Bloomberg Television (BTV) investigations into unethical business practices on Wall Street earned twelve awards in business and finance news in 2008-2009. His program “401(k) Hidden Fees” won the 2008 Business Emmy for Outstanding Investigative Reporting of a Business News Story Magazine and Long Form. It was Bloomberg’s first Emmy in any category. Since BTV’s creation in 1994, the network received a total of 5 Emmy nominations; Matsumoto’s work garnered 3 of them. More viewers watched his investigation into manipulative short selling than any other program ever shown on BTV.
Berlin, Tiananmen, Romania & Iraq
Matsumoto’s career gave him a front-row seat to history-in-the-making around the globe. As a London-based foreign correspondent for NBC News, he interviewed European prime ministers, hobnobbed with royalty and rock stars and dodged bullets in Iraq, Romania and the People’s Republic of China -- reporting stories from more than 40 countries on 5 continents.
In all, Matsumoto received nearly two dozen broadcast journalism awards as a National and Foreign Correspondent for NBC News, a Senior Correspondent for the Fox News Channel and Specials Unit reporter and producer for Bloomberg Television. You can still hear his 1989 radio broadcasts from the Berlin Wall and Tiananmen Square at the Paley Center for Media in New York.
Speaking at NVIC’s Public Conference on Vaccination
In an Oct. 3 presentation at the Fourth International Public Conference on Vaccination entitled “Without Consent, What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You,” Gary Matsumoto will be giving an overview of how and why squalene oil adjuvants are so toxic and can cause catastrophic immune dysfunction.
Covering Expenses, Donating to NVIC
WithoutConsent is an experiment in investigative journalism reported on the internet by an award winning journalist who wants to report the news that mainstream media won’t and not give it away for free. “Opinions are cheap.” said Matsumoto. “Real reporting is expensive. Journalism is a business, and so is WithoutConsent. The difference is we aren’t captive to our advertisers. We plege to report the inconvenient truth, provided our revenues can cover our costs.”
A portion of the proceeds from the small pay-per-download fee charged for obtaining information through the WithoutConsent website is being donated by Gary Matsumoto to the National Vaccine Information Center.
