Grandmother dies from swine flu after receiving swine flu vaccine

Eleanor Carruthers, 68, had the flu vaccine in October but died after catching the swine strain.

A grandmother-of-three thought she was safe from swine flu after she had the vaccine months ago.

But Eleanor Carruthers, 68, from Merseyside became the latest victim of the outbreak on Saturday.

Mrs Carruthers was seriously ill with emphysema and lung cancer, but had had the flu vaccination in October to protect her from the illness.

Despite the step, she was rushed to the Royal Liverpool Hospital last week and later died. H1N1 (swine flu) was recorded as one of the main causes of her death.

She leaves behind three children and her husband Alf, 69. Today her daughter, Carole, 46, said they were all shocked by how quickly her condition deteriorated.

She said: ‘What we don’t understand is that mum had the vaccine in October, because she was in an at risk group.

‘And even though she was ill, she had been OK until her breathing worsened very quickly on Saturday morning.

‘It was such a sudden thing, she died that night.

‘I had been ill at New Year, and asked the doctors whether I should keep away from mum, but they said the vaccine would protect her from flu.’

Heartbroken: Alf Carruthers, 69,from Wavertree, was married to Eleanor for 47 years.

She added: ‘I feel totally lost without her, both my brothers Alan and John do not know what to do.

‘My dad is so lost as well, he had known my mum since he was seven and they had been married for 47 years.

‘She was a happy loving woman, she would give you anything and go without herself. She was still so full of life and the family will not be whole without her at the centre.’

The NHS says the seasonal flu vaccine gives 70 to 80 per cent protection from flu.

A spokeswoman for Liverpool PCT said: ‘Although we can’t comment on individual cases, this is obviously a very sad time for the family of the person concerned and our hearts go out to them.

‘Expert advice from the World Health Organisation, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation and the Department of Health is that the flu vaccine is a highly effective vaccination and the best way for people in ‘at risk’ groups to protect themselves from the virus.’

It comes as latest official figures reveal flu has now claimed 112 lives since October – more than double the number reported last week.

Out of these, 95 had the swine flu strain and the majority of those who died were under 65 years old

The Health Protection Agency said although flu deaths had more than doubled from 50 cases last week, most of these deaths occurred in December.

‘Due to the backlog over the seasonal holiday period they have only been confirmed this week,’ a spokesman said.

Professor John Watson, head of the respiratory diseases department at the HPA, said: ‘Our latest flu report suggests levels of people seeing their doctor for flu-like illness is beginning to plateau but this may be skewed by the recent holiday period.’

The number of people in critical care in England has fallen from 783 last week to 661.

The majority of deaths hit adults of working age with 70 deaths among the 15-64 years olds. There were nine cases among five to 14 year olds and six deaths in children under the age of five.

    You would expect the live virus ‘Vaccine’ to have a localised impact if it were some sort of freak batch.

    One can only speculate.

    I would like to address this ..

    “Expert advice from the World Health Organisation, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation and the Department of Health is that the flu vaccine is a highly effective vaccination and the best way for people in ‘at risk’ groups to protect themselves from the virus.’””

    It will soon be seen that the above statement by WHO is plainly false.


    These are just some of the ingredients in Swine Flu vaccine:

    1) ALUMINUM (two variants) – directly linked to Alzheimer’s Disease

    2) AMMONIUM SULFATE – an inorganic chemical compound used a fertilizer and “protein purifier”; known to cause kidney & liver damage, gastrointestinal disfunctions

    3) AMPHOTERICIN B – an “antifungal disinfectant”, damages the urinary tract, bowels, heart functions

    4) RE-CYCLED ANIMAL TISSUE (multiple) – the building blocks of Mad Cow Disease

    5) FORMALDEHYDE – used as “a preservative & disinfectant”, known to cause cancer, chronic bronchitis, eye irritation when exposed to the body’s immune system

    6) MSG – now known to cause cancer in humans, also linked to obesity

    7) PHENOL – a highly toxic disinfectant dye, attributed to liver, kidney, heart & respiratory damage

    8) PHENOXYETHANOL (ANTIFREEZE) – proven to have extreme neurotoxic side effects

    9) THIMEROSAL (MERCURY) – a neurotoxin linked to psychological, neurological & immunological problems. Nervous system damage, kidney disease, birth defects, dental problems, mood swings, mental changes, hallucinations, memory loss, nerve damage and inability to concentrate can occur. Symptoms also include tremors, loss of dermal sensitivity, slurred speech and, in rare cases, even death and paralysis. This additive alone was the catalyst for another recent Class Action Lawsuit organized by mothers of children born with Autism & the many related behavioral disorders associated with it. Autism is now occurring at levels never seen before in history, 1 in 67. The average used to be 1 in 20,000.

    Is it morally right to inject this lethal cocktail into people, especially Expectant Mothers and Children? Whatever happened to truth and accountability. ?

    Please consider this…

    Vaccines contain decomposed protein such as that which is taken from pustules on sick animals or putrefied eggs mixed with deadly drugs such as carbolic acid (phenol), mercury, formaldehyde (formalin), etc. Decomposed proteins can cause botulism, salmonella or other types of body poisoning. It’s no wonder people drop dead after the shots.

    Vaccines: Sterilisation & Abortion
    A covert-sterilisation programme using vaccines such as tetanus, rubella and what looks to be Gardasil (1), also the use of mercury in third world country vaccines (even after they have removed most of it it from Western countries) is suspected of being a birth control ploy (1). They have form with 60,000 Americans coercively sterilized , and between 1963 and 1965 more than 400,000 Colombian women were sterilized in a program funded by the Rockefeller Foundation which also helped found and fund the German eugenics program; and even funded the program that ultimately sent Josef Mengele into Auschwitz

    Swine flu jab link to killer nerve disease: Leaked letter reveals concern of neurologists over 25 deaths in America

    A warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.
    The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.

    It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.

    The letter, sent to about 600 neurologists on July 29, is the first sign that there is concern at the highest levels that the vaccine itself could cause serious complications

    I would like the WHO , NHS, and all Vaccine Pushers to
    answer these questions:

    1) Where are the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies proving flu vaccines are both safe and effective?

    2) Where, then, is the so-called “science” backing the idea that flu vaccines work at all?

    3) How can methyl mercury (Thimerosal, a preservative used in flu vaccines) be safe for injecting into the human body when mercury is an extremely toxic heavy metal?

    4) Why do reports keep surfacing of children and teens suffering debilitating neurological disorders, brain swelling, seizures and even death following flu vaccines or HPV vaccines?

    5) Why don’t doctors recommend vitamin D for flu protection, especially when vitamin D activates the immune response far better than a vaccine?

    6) If human beings need flu vaccines to survive, then how did humans survive through all of Earth’s history?

    7) If the flu vaccine offers protection against the flu, then why are the people who often catch the flu the very same people who were vaccinated against it?

    8) If the flu vaccine really works, then why was there no huge increase in flu death rates in 2004, the year when flu vaccines were in short supply and vaccination rates dropped by 40%?

    9) How can flu vaccines reduce mortality by 50% (as is claimed) when only about 10% of winter deaths are related to the flu in the first place?

    10) If flu vaccines work so well, then why are drug makers and health authorities so reluctant to subject them to scientific scrutiny with randomized, placebo-controlled studies?
