Government learns from its mistakes

Under a document signed by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, makers of any new swine flu vaccine are immune from lawsuit.
The last time the government embarked on a major vaccine campaign against a new swine flu [1976], thousands of people filed claims contending they suffered side effects from the shots.
During the last virus scare,
Federal officials vaccinated 40 million Americans during a national campaign. A pandemic never materialized, but thousands who got the shots filed injury claims, saying they suffered a paralyzing condition called Guillain-Barre Syndrome or other side effects.
So if you get strong-armed into getting the vaccine and end up spending the rest of your life in a wheelchair, tough. Remember, the government had your best interests in mind.
