At rare trial of alleged vaccine side effects, parents say H1N1 flu shot killed 5-year-old daughter

In 2009, Governments faced major pressure to procure the vaccine and administer it widely, but at the same time there were concerns about its safety. By most accounts, Amina Abudu was a happy, healthy little girl in 2009, when health authorities declared that a pandemic flu virus was sweeping the world.

A vaccine was rushed to market, and the five year old was among millions of Canadians to get the shot, amid widespread fears about the new pathogen. Five days later, Amina’s older brother found her lying unconscious in the bathroom of the family’s east-end Toronto home. She was dead. Her devastated parents came to blame the flu shot itself and sued the vaccine’s manufacturer, Glaxo Smith Kline (GSK), for $4.2 million. The little-noticed trial of that lawsuit drew toward a close on Tuesday, a rare judicial airing in Canada of a vaccine’s alleged side effects.

Some schools may have the city's highest philosophical vaccine exemption rate. Approximately 60 students at Trille des Bois had exemptions in 2018-19

Some parents of children at one Ottawa elementary school say they're concerned about the number of students there who have philosophical exemptions for vaccinations.

During the 2018-19 school year, 11.26 per cent of students at the Trille des Bois school in Vanier, a French-language alternative school, had philosophical exemptions on file. That's the highest percentage for any school in the local public or Catholic boards, both English-language and French-language, according to data provided by Ottawa Public Health. (That data did not include private schools.)

It also equates to about 60 of the school's 533 pupils.

Narcolepsy Following Pandemrix Influenza Vaccination in Europe.

An increased risk of narcolepsy was found following vaccination with Pandemrix, a monovalent 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccine that was used in several European countries during the H1N1 influenza pandemic. Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological disorder caused by the brain’s inability to regulate sleep-wake cycles normally. This risk was initially found in Finland, and then some other European countries also detected an association. Most recently, scientists at the United Kingdom’s (UK) Health Protection Agency (HPA) have found evidence of an association between Pandemrix and narcolepsy in children in England. The findings are consistent with studies from Finland and other countries.

It's better to have a tiny flu than die of a bogus vaccine!

For sure, a good deal of science experience may go erroneously wrong and may kill young lives!  disappointed_relieved

I think this happens more when scientists  are more eager to make a huge revenue, instead of actually heal people!

Are scientists using people as guineas pigs for their experimental test as they are researching their new vaccine efficiencies ??
