Swine Flu

I was told many years ago that the Swine Flu innoculation killed more people than the Swine Flu itself. I’ve done some research and I can’t verify this. Has anyone heard this before? It appears this Flu would have broken out in the 50’s. Have a reference you can point me to? I’d appreciate the assistance.

Thanks

How did the pig get to the top of the Empire State Building

The Swine Flew (swine flu) get it?

Ok it’s lame but at the time the flu was in the news it was the biggest joke around

Now back the the thread

Do a Google search under “swine flu” and “swine flu shots” and “swine flu history”. There’s tons of stuff on the Web.
Here’s a sample.

Swine flu itself originated in 1918. There are some anti-vaccination people who think that the 1918 epidemic was worsened by trying to inoculate people against it. Probably the deaths you’re thinking of were from the 1976 inoculation hysteria.
