Vaccine Updates

Children of God for Life, an organization that tracks the use of aborted babies in vaccines, has put out a new press release:

Consumer warning: New flu vaccine from Vaxin to use aborted fetal cell lines

Also of note from Children of God for Life:

Japan hires business relations firm to promote ethical vaccine alternative
The Kitsato Institute, manufacturer of the untainted rubella and new MMR vaccine has hired a business relations firm to negotiate contracts for licensing and importing their vaccines. Current meetings are underway in Canada and Australia. Although similar meetings have been going on for months for US distribution, the addition of new personnel at Kitasato and the BR firm will provide dedicated focus on the new markets.

Merck's new 4 In 1 vaccine- PROQUAD using aborted fetal cell lines
Due to continued failure of the chickenpox vaccine to provide immunity, Merck has filed for licensing of a new vaccine called PROQUAD - which provides simultaneous vaccination for measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox. The shot would be given at 12-15 mos and again as a booster before entering school. The vaccine contains products from 3 different abortions: RA273, MRC-5 and WI-38. Whether issued in combination or in single doses, the rubella and chickenpox portions of PROQUAD contain aborted fetal cell lines. Measles and mumps in single doses use chick embryo.
