Battle Over Tamiflu
"Battle Over Tamiflu"
Researchers at the University of Oxford said that the vaccination does little to help sick children, and the vaccine's potentially harmful side-effects outweigh the benefits.
The World Health Organization disagrees -- they say that people who are violently ill with the H1N1 virus (including children) should be treated with tamiflu as soon as they can. Even the Food and Drug Administration disagrees with the University of Oxford -- the say the tamiflu vaccine is safe for all children.
The United States Food and Drug Administration as well as the World Health Organization say those people who are experiencing mild flu-like symptoms do not necessarily need to be treated with tamiflu, because as far as research can show, the flu will most likely not worsen, and the symptoms will only reduce.
