The US Institute of Medicine disregards the thousands of adverse event reports for flu shots. Big Pharma has some exotic new flu products for fall 2013, including quadrivalent (four-in-one) vaccines produced using dog kidney cells (Flucelvax) and army worm cells (Flublok). Researchers are also closer to developing what they believe will be a “universal” flu shot that will protect against every new strain of the disease, though its implementation will be at least five years off. We need to tell the Institute of Medicine to consider the thousands of adverse event reports that doctors have filed about flu vaccines. How can we make flu shots safer if we ignore the problems they’ve already caused?
The British Medical Journal (BMJ), one of the world’s most highly revered scientific medical publications, has published an article that condemns influenza vaccines and their marketing. Dr. Peter Doshi is a post-doctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, which is generally considered to be one of the world’s finest. His career is ahead of him, but this paper may have derailed it. We’ve seen what’s been done to the career of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who was already a world-renowned researcher with impeccable credentials. Dr. Doshi cannot be unaware of that, so the only conclusion to be drawn is that he feels conscience-bound to tell the truth and to inform people of the fact that influenza vaccines are both dangerous and, if not entirely ineffective, certainly they provide only minuscule benefit.
Do doctors and nurses who administer the flu vaccine to pregnant women warn them that these vaccines have not been tested on pregnant women? Last year, the National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW) stated that between 2009 and 2010 the mercury-laden combined flu vaccinations increased Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Systems (VAERS) fetal death reports by 4,250 percent in pregnant women. Influenza vaccines are Category B or C drugs, which means that adequate and well-controlled studies on pregnant women have not been conducted and it is not known whether these vaccines can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or if they can affect reproduction capacity. The National Vaccine Information Center has the current links for the 2013/2014 influenza vaccine manufacturer's package inserts that have been licensed for use in the U.S. As a consumer, it is important to understand and read this information carefully prior to receiving a vaccine. These links are directly from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's website, which makes available to the public package insert information from vaccine manufacturers. Inserts contain important information regarding drug interactions, contraindications, adverse reactions, warnings and precautions.
The seasonal flu vaccine causes Guillain-Barré Syndrome. The manufacturers of the vaccines and government health officials concede this fact. The only thing that is disputed is: how many people does it affect? There is credible evidence to suggest it is a lot more than what they are claiming.
Last year we saw an increase in healthcare facilities requiring nurses and other healthcare workers to receive mandatory flu vaccinations as a requirement for employment. We learned that new mandates for mandatory flu vaccinations of healthcare workers was tied into new requirements for Obamacare. Failure to meet certain percentages of a healthcare facility's employees as vaccinated for influenza jeopardized their federal reimbursement of Medicare and Medicaid funds. As a result, many of our nation's top nurses who are opposed to vaccinations lost their jobs, and many more face losing their jobs this year as well. We reported many of these brave nurses stories last year. Now, a recent meta-analysis study just published this month by the CDC reveals that flu vaccinations among healthcare workers offer no evidence of protection to the patients under their care! Predictably, the CDC still recommends flu shots for healthcare workers because "It's the best intervention we currently have, so we need to keep using it while working toward a better flu vaccine." So in other words, mandatory flu vaccinations of healthcare workers will continue, in spite of the lack of evidence that they work to protect patients. Read More.
Studies show that the influenza vaccine is ineffective in the elderly and very young, and recent animal studies suggest that vaccinating against one strain of influenza may actually increase the risk of being infected with a related but different influenza strain. Recent research raises very important questions about the approach taken in the development of a universal flu vaccine, which targets the “stalk,” or non-mutating part of the virus. In 2009, researchers also noticed that people who had gotten a flu shot the previous year were MORE likely to succumb to the novel H1N1 strain, compared to those who had not received a flu shot the previous year. Infants born to mothers who received the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine lose their passively acquired immunity from their mothers two months sooner than those born to mothers who were naturally infected with measles. Instead of addressing the scientific evidence demonstrating vaccine risks and failures, UNICEF is focusing on public relations schemes to convince you not to pay attention to the available science.
CDC Study Shows Little or No Correlation Between Flu Vaccination Status and Confirmed Influenza Rates
A new study, funded by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and performed by researchers who receive research funding from the pharmaceutical corporation MedImmune, came up with results in an influenza vaccination study that can only be called confounding. Their results seem to demonstrate that there is little or no correlation between flu vaccination status and confirmed influenza rates. Nonetheless, they conclude that school children should be vaccinated for the flu.
While this year's flu shot is already being aggressively marketed to seniors at the nation's chain drug stores, what is not being reported is that 23 seniors died after receiving this vaccine during the drug trials, as is revealed in the drug manufacturers' package insert. During drug trials, there were 249 serious adverse events, including 23 deaths, out of only 3833 participants. If this does not constitute a dangerous drug that should probably not even be on the market, then I don't know what does. And yet, this high-dose flu vaccine with 4 times the antigens of the regular vaccine, is sold to unsuspecting seniors and others like candy at these drug stores.
A new marketing campaign has been released by the CDC which marks a new low in marketing the influenza vaccine, as they target pregnant Hispanic women. A Spanish language mini soap opera is claimed to be based on a true story of a Hispanic couple expecting their second child. "The story of Jorge and Monica is a tragic reminder of the importance of annual flu vaccination for pregnant women and their family." states the CDC. This video shows first hand the lengths the CDC will go to further brainwash the masses on a useless yearly flu shot, as it promotes the flu vaccine based purely on fear and emotion, with no basis in facts or science.
New research just published confirms what other studies have already shown: that the H1N1 swine flu vaccine actually made flu symptoms worse. The new research just published examined swine that received the H1N1 vaccine, and were subsequently exposed to a related strain of the same virus they were vaccinated for. The result: "enhanced pneumonia and disease after H1N1 infection." Don't expect to read this new research anywhere in the mainstream media, however. The flu season is just around the corner, and along with it, the annual push to get everyone vaccinated with the flu vaccine, even though studies have shown that the flu vaccine is only 1.5% effective. Given the fact that the flu vaccine can cause Guillain-Barré syndrome, a modern day form of polio, why would anyone take such a risk?
