115. Again, you make a big assumption about campylobacter, all by itself.
And you make an even bigger assumption in thinking that campylobacter had anything to do with the GBS cases related to the 1976 vaccine.

Further From:

"Issues are raised about vaccine safety with comparisons made with the different vaccine administered in the USA in 1976. This is misleading. In 2003 the European Commission and the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) in conjunction with the Irish Medicines Board and other European regulatory authorities introduced a procedure to prepare for future vaccines that could be used in a pandemic. These used 'mock-up' pandemic influenza vaccine which mimicked the future vaccine that would be used in terms of its composition, manufacturing and control and considered as identical to this vaccine except that it did not contain the material from the actual viral strain responsible for the pandemic. Since then there has been continuous review of animal and human studies with these mock-up vaccines on their safety and effectiveness. This has allowed for timely development of vaccines that are considered safe and effective for use in a pandemic without advanced knowledge of the viral strain responsible. Non-clinical and clinical testing is being done on an ongoing basis to provide information on immune response and safety. Outcomes from these studies completed to date indicate that the pandemic vaccine is as safe as the seasonal influenza vaccine, which is used every year in Ireland."
