CDC issues flu vaccine apology: this year's vaccine doesn't work!

The following video from Gary Franchi of NextNewsNetwork reveals the shocking admission by the CDC that this year's flu vaccine doesn't work.

From the video:

For the first time we can remember, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are going on the record, saying the flu vaccine won't work this year. The warning comes just before the busiest part of flu season, in January and February. Unfortunately, there won't be any refund for any of the patients or insurance companies who spent money on flu shots earlier this fall.

But don't worry. Just when you thought perhaps the CDC could boost their credibility, they found a way to put a sales pitch on the end of their warning. The CDC says if you do come down with the flu, there's a cure. It's just going to cost more money. Money that will end up profiting pharmaceutical giants, GlaxoSmithKline and Roche. CDC officials are urging doctors to prescribe two specific antiviral medications for any patients who come in with flu symptoms.

Just last week, the CDC issued a warning, prompting Americans to take the flu vaccine if they haven't already. Health officials said they had 160 million flu shots on the shelves and ready to go. But just earlier this week, Italy launched an official investigation after about a dozen people died within 48 hours of getting the flu shot. Their national health agency issued an immediate warning, saying DON'T take the vaccine. Here in America, the CDC isn't going that far. In fact, they found a way of turning this failed vaccine into a promotion for yet another big pharma drug.

Here's the news report viewo:



And here's an original laboratory research report from Natural News earlier this year. I personally conducted the ICP-MS heavy metals analysis of these flu vaccines and have the raw count data to prove it. Mercury particle counts at atomic masses 200, 201 and 202 were through the roof on these laboratory tests.

Don't you find it astonishing that it takes a private ICP-MS laboratory with no ties to government funding, universities or the FDA to finally test flu vaccines and report the truth? (To my knowledge, Natural News is the only news organization in the world that owns a cutting-edge private mass spectrometry instrument and uses it for scientific research in the public interest...)

Flashback: Flu vaccines laboratory confirmed to contain crazy high concentrations of mercury
Mercury tests conducted on vaccines at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab have revealed a shockingly high level of toxic mercury in an influenza vaccine (flu shot) made by GlaxoSmithKline (lot #9H2GX). Tests conducted via ICP-MS document mercury in the Flulaval vaccine at a shocking 51 parts per million, or over 25,000 times higher than the maximum contaminant level of inorganic mercury in drinking water set by the EPA.(1)

The tests were conducted via ICP-MS using a 4-point mercury calibration curve for accuracy. Even then, the extremely high level of mercury found in this flu shot was higher than anything we've ever tested, including tuna and ocean fish which are known for high mercury contamination.

In fact, the concentration of mercury found in this GSK flu shot was 100 times higher than the highest level of mercury we've ever tested in contaminated fish. And yet vaccines are injected directly into the body, making them many times more toxic than anything ingested orally. As my previous research into foods has already documented, mercury consumed orally is easily blocked by eating common foods like strawberries or peanut butter, both of which bind with and capture about 90% of dietary mercury.

Here are the actual results of what we found in the influenza vaccine from GSK (lot #9H2GX):

Aluminum: 0.4 ppm
Arsenic: zero
Cadmium: zero
Lead: zero
Mercury: 51 ppm

All tests were conducted via calibrated, high-end ICP-MS instrumentation as shown in these lab videos.

Doctors, pharmacists and mainstream media continue to lie about mercury in vaccines
As you take in the scientifically-validated fact that mercury exists at very high concentrations in flu vaccines, keep in mind that most doctors, pharmacists and members of the mainstream media continue to stage an elaborate lie that claims mercury has "already been removed from vaccines."

Never mind the fact that the use of mercury is admitted right on the package containing the vaccine vial. And now, Natural News has scientifically confirmed the mercury content of flu vaccines using high-end laboratory instrumentation. The existence of high mercury in flu shots is irrefutable.

Anyone who claims mercury has been removed from all vaccines is either wildly ignorant or willfully lying. And anyone who would knowingly allow themselves to be injected with mercury is probably already a victim of the kind of brain damage well known to be caused by mercury.

Insert admits "no controlled trials"
Shockingly, the package insert for this flu shot readily admits the vaccine has never been subjected to scientific clinical trials:

"There have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with Flulaval," the package insert claims in tiny text (that no one reads).

This is printed right on the insert, yet no one in the mainstream media will ever report this astonishing admission. This statement, all by itself, is a confession that flu shot marketing is a fraud.

Across the board, flu shots are heavily propagandized and promoted with the implication that they have zero risks while offering 100% protection. No one in the mainstream media ever questions this claim even though the package insert openly admits the claim is complete hokum and has never been subjected to scientific scrutiny.

No evidence of safety or effectiveness in pregnant women
But that's not all the insert admits. It also says:

"Safety and effectiveness of Flulaval have not been established in pregnant women, nursing mothers or children."

And yet everywhere you go in America, there's a Walgreens, CVS or Wal-Mart pharmacy promoting flu shots for pregnant women. Never mind the fact that flu shot safety has never been established in pregnant women, and never mind the obvious fact that you should never inject a pregnant women with mercury in the first place!

Who needs scientific proof when you've got the full propaganda of the media and the government to back you up? Anyone who dares question the scientific validity of flu shot safety for pregnant women is immediately attacked as being an opponent of all vaccines.

Apparently, the only requirement to be accepted by the vaccine community is to believe in medical fairy tales while abandoning all critical thinking and scientific skepticism. In the vaccine industry, genuine science is simply not allowed. No wonder two former Merck virologists filed a False Claims Act with the federal government, accusing the company of knowingly fabricating its vaccine efficacy data to trick the FDA.

Never proven safe or effective in children, either
Flu shots are heavily promoted for children, right alongside mumps and measles vaccines. But it turns out flu shots are never scientifically tested for safety or efficacy in children.

Check out what the insert for this vaccine directly admits:

"Safety and effectiveness of Flulaval in pediatric patients have not been established."

It's right there in black and white... an open admission. Yet flu shots are aggressively marketed to parents and children as if they were Tic-Tacs. The real beauty of the entire vaccine industry scam is that no scientific evidence is required! You don't have to have any proof, all you have to do is believe in vaccines as a matter of faith.

Never tested for cancer risk
Do flu shots cause cancer? The honest, scientific answer is that these shots are never tested for that. As the insert readily admits:

"Flulaval has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility."

Believe it or not, the Flulaval vaccine also warns that no one should be given this shot if they've already received another flu shot at some previous time:

"Do not administer Flulaval to anyone... following previous administration of any influenza vaccine."

And yet, amazingly, people are encouraged to get flu shots year after year, even though the package insert directly warns against anyone taking a series of influenza vaccines.

Admission that flu shots contain formaldehyde and sodium deoxycholate
The same insert that admits this vaccine has never been proven safe in children or pregnant women also openly admits that it contains neurotoxic chemicals.

Per the insert, each dose of Flulaval contains up to 25 mcg of formaldehyde (a neurotoxin) and up to 50 mcg of sodium deoxycholate.

This is on top of the 25 mcg of mercury you'll get in every dose. And remember, this is mercury that's injected directly into your body, so you absorb 100% of this mercury (unlike mercury you eat, where most of it sticks to food fibers and is transported out of your body).

Total admission that flu shots cause seizures, convulsions and Guillian-Barre syndrome
Ever wonder what all these toxic chemicals and heavy metals cause in humans? Flu shots vaccines, it turns out, are already known to cause a huge number of devastating health effects.

Predictably, there is a massive disinfo campaign across the mainstream media, Wikipedia, medical journals and government propaganda agencies (CDC, FDA, etc.) to pretend that flu shots have no risks whatsoever. Yet the insert that comes with the vaccine openly admits the flu shot has been linked with a long, frightening list of serious adverse effects. As this Flulaval insert says (see photo below):

"In addition to reports in clinical trials, the following adverse events have been identified during postapproval use of Flulaval...

vomiting
chest pain
allergic edema of the mouth
anaphylaxis
laryngitis
cullulitis
muscle weakness
arthritis
dizziness
paresthesia
tremor
somnolence
Guillian-Barre syndrome
convulsions / seizures
facial or cranial nerve paralysis
encephalopathy
limb paralysis
insomnia
dyspnea
sweating"

Here's a photo of this section of the package insert, complete with the GlaxoSmithKline toll-free phone number:



If you take flu shots, you are being poisoned by quacks
The upshot of all this is that flu shots utterly lack any scientific evidence of safety of efficacy. We don't know if they work at all, in other words, and neither does the vaccine manufacturer. Neither do the doctors or medical staff who administer them. Flu vaccines are injected into people purely as a matter of blind faith in the very same companies that have already been convicted of felony crimes.

GlaxoSmithKline, for example, not only manufacturers this Flulaval vaccine... the company also committed multiple felony crimes and got caught bribing doctors, ultimately agreeing to pay a multi-billion-dollar criminal settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice.

Trusting a flu shot made by a corporation of felons is a lot like trusting the purity of heroin you buy from a street dealer. Both flu shots and street heroin have at least one thing in common, by the way: neither has ever been tested for safety.

We also know that flu shots contain neurotoxic chemicals and heavy metals in alarming concentrations. This is irrefutable scientific fact. We also know that there is no "safe" form of mercury just like there is no safe form of heroin -- all forms of mercury are highly toxic when injected into the body (ethyl, methyl, organic, inorganic).

The only people who argue with this are those who are already mercury poisoned and thus incapable of rational thought. Mercury damages brain function, you see, which is exactly what causes some people to be tricked into thinking vaccines are safe and effective.

Technically, you'd have to be stupid to believe such a thing, as the vaccine insert directly tells you precisely the opposite.

Share this story, spread the truth
Share this story with everyone who needs to know the truth about flu vaccines. This message needs to get out. Every fact stated in this article is 100% true and verified. The quotes from the Flulaval package insert are on-the-record statements from GlaxoSmithKline.

And for the record, I am not an opponent of the theory of vaccination. What I'm against is the continued use of toxic heavy metals and chemicals in vaccines. I'm also opposed to the wildly fraudulent marketing of vaccines. If any other product were marketed with the same lies and deceptions as vaccines, they would be immediately charged with fraud and misrepresentation by the FTC. But somehow when the vaccine industry commits routine fraud, everybody pretends it isn't happening.

Even with all the marketing fraud taking place, if the vaccine manufacturers would stop poisoning the population with vaccine additives (by removing mercury, formaldehyde and other chemicals from their products), nearly all opposition to vaccines would rapidly disappear.

Deadlier Flu Season Is Possible, C.D.C. Says

This year’s flu season may be deadlier than usual, and this year’s flu vaccine is a relatively poor match to a new virus that is now circulating, federal health officials warned on Thursday.

“Flu is unpredictable, but what we’ve seen thus far is concerning,” said Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The C.D.C. has alerted doctors to the problem and has urged them to prescribe antiviral drugs like Tamiflu to vulnerable patients with flu symptoms without waiting for a positive flu test.

The season has only just begun, but 91 percent of the approximately 1,200 samples tested thus far are of the H3N2 subtype of influenza A, Dr. Frieden said. Almost all the rest were influenza B. There were almost no samples of the H1 subtype, a descendant of the 2009 swine flu strain.

Years in which H3 subtypes are more common than H1 subtypes tend to lead to more hospitalizations and deaths, he added.

Moreover, about half of those H3 subtypes — or about 45 percent of all the samples tested so far — are of a new H3 subtype that this season’s flu vaccine does not protect well against.

The new subtype first appeared overseas in March, Dr. Frieden said. Because it was not found in many samples in the United States until September, it is too late to change the vaccine, he said.

Most of the flu vaccine sold in the United States is grown in chicken eggs, which takes about six months. Other methods, like growing it in cell broths, can speed up the process, but still take about four months.

The C.D.C. still recommends that all Americans get flu shots because they are as protective as usual against the older H3 strain, influenza B and the small numbers of H1. And they may provide at least a weak defense against the newer H3.

But because of the increased danger from the H3 strain — and because B influenza strains can also cause serious illness — the C.D.C. recommends that patients with asthma, diabetes or lung or heart problems see a doctor at the first sign of a possible flu, and that doctors quickly prescribe antivirals like Tamiflu or Relenza.

Those medications are “not miracle drugs,” Dr. Frieden said. The earlier they are given in the illness, the better they work, and all they usually do is shorten the illness by one day — but in a vulnerable patient, that may mean the difference between death and survival.

Five children are known to have died from flu-related illnesses this season, Dr. Frieden said.

Vaccine problems may signal rocky flu season

New evidence shows that FluMist and seasonal shots likely won’t protect very well against this year’s flu viruses. But doctors and health officials say some protection is better than none. They urge that everyone 6 months of age and older be inoculated against what is a potentially deadl


Seattle mom Nancy Dragun wanted to ward off flu this year, so she got her family vaccinated early, a shot for herself and doses of the FluMist nasal spray for her two boys, ages 9 and 11.

“I trust the experts, I guess, and my pediatricians have always recommended it,” said Dragun, 42, who works at the University of Washington.

But Dragun said she’s disturbed at new evidence showing this year’s vaccine — both the FluMist spray and the seasonal shots — likely won’t protect very well against targeted flu viruses. In the case of FluMist, there are problems with effectiveness in two of the three or four flu strains it’s formulated to hit.

“I’m starting to wonder if I should have done that,” Dragun said. “It’s a little bit nerve-wracking, for sure.”

At the start of what may be a bad flu season, local and national health officials are scrambling to reassure the public that even though this year’s vaccine has problems, it’s still the best way to prevent potentially deadly flu infections.

“The flu is a very wily and cagey virus,” said Dr. Don Shifrin, a Bellevue pediatrician. “Every year we try to play whack-a-mole with the flu virus. Some years we do better than others, but we’re still in the game.”

A report released in November by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that FluMist offered “no measurable effectiveness” against one virus, the H1N1 swine flu, among children last year. Because the vaccine hasn’t changed, the same results may occur this year, health officials said.

This past week, CDC officials announced that the 2014-2015 vaccine is a poor match for about half of the H3N2 viruses that appear to be the dominant strain already spreading this season.

“Flu is unpredictable, but what we’ve seen thus far is concerning,” CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden told news reporters.

This could be a worse-than-normal year for flu, Frieden added, because seasons in which H3 viruses dominate typically cause more illnesses and deaths than seasons in which H1 viruses are common.

CDC officials also warned doctors about the problem, urging them — and consumers — to seek antiviral drugs such as Tamiflu and Relenza at the first sign of flu, especially for people particularly vulnerable to infection.

The antiviral drugs don’t stop flu, but they may shorten the intensity and duration of the illness, experts said.

Bracing for bad year

The flu-vaccine problems are bad news for health officials, who recommend that everyone older than 6 months get shots or sprays. Only about 42 percent of adults and less than 60 percent of kids and teens got inoculated for flu last year, according to the CDC.

In a good year, flu vaccine is about 50 to 70 percent effective at preventing illness, experts estimate. In a bad year, more of those inoculated get sick anyway. In 2007-2008, when there was a mismatch between vaccine and virus, efficacy dropped to just above 40 percent. Shifrin said he worries that might prompt some people to skip the shots this year — and in the future.

“It’s very easy to scare people,” he said. “We don’t want to put out the message that the flu vaccine doesn’t work.”

The flu season has just started, both nationally and in the region that includes Washington state, health records show.

About 94 percent of more than 13,000 samples tested so far by the CDC are the dominant H3N2 subtype of flu, about 6 percent are the B strain, and almost none were the H1N1 swine flu, which descended from the 2009 pandemic strain, according to new flu figures released Friday.

But more than half of the H3 subtypes — or 58 percent of the samples — are a new H3 strain that has “drifted,” or changed from the type targeted by this year’s flu vaccine. As a result, the vaccine likely offers poor protection against that strain, Frieden said.

That subtype first showed up in March overseas, but it wasn’t seen in large numbers in the U.S. until September. Because it takes about four months to manufacture a flu vaccine, it’s too late to make a change, Frieden added. So far this year, about 150 million doses of flu vaccine have been released.

The problem with FluMist is different. Scientists still don’t know why the vaccine failed almost completely to protect against the H1N1 swine-flu strain last year, particularly in the youngest patients.

“This was very surprising,” said Mike Jackson, a scientific investigator at Group Health Research Institute in Seattle, one of five sites across the country that routinely conduct vaccine-effectiveness checks for the CDC. “It’s really quite different from the way this specific vaccine performed in the last couple years.”

In fact, CDC officials were so confident about the nasal spray, which uses a live but weakened virus, that in June they recommended that it be the first choice for kids ages 2 to 8 for the 2014-2015 season.

Worry for parents

News about problems with the vaccines is surprising and concerning for parents like Dragun.

“As a mother, my first priority is to protect my kids, but I don’t want to put anything additional into them if it’s not going to protect them,” she said.

Health experts say they hope parents take a wider view, that vaccines still offer important defense against flu, which has been linked to the deaths of five children nationally already this season.

“What I would tell parents — and what I would tell my wife, who asked the question — is that the vaccines may have lower effectiveness, but they have some effectiveness,” said Dr. Joe Bresee, the chief of epidemiology and prevention in the CDC’s flu branch. “I wouldn’t regret getting the vaccine and, moreover, I would say go out and get it.”

There’s some evidence that FluMist may actually protect better against so-called drifted strains, such as the new H3N2 virus. There’s almost no H1N1 circulating this year, so it’s still a good choice, Bresee said.

If kids already have received FluMist this year, they’re considered fully vaccinated, CDC officials said. It’s not recommended that they get a shot too, noted Dr. Doug Opel, a pediatrician and bioethicist at Seattle Children’s.

No parent — or grandparent — should forgo flu vaccine for themselves or their kids because of the reported problems, Opel said.

“Remember, each year, influenza causes more hospitalizations and deaths in the U.S. than any other vaccine-preventable disease,” he said. The CDC estimates that flu causes 200,000 hospitalizations and anywhere between 3,000 and 48,000 deaths in the U.S. in any given year. Most deaths are among people older than 65.

Despite her concerns about vaccine effectiveness, Dragun decided that she’s glad she and her boys are vaccinated. They’re pretty healthy kids, generally, and even if the vaccine doesn’t stop the flu, the illness may be shorter and less severe.

“I guess I come down on that side,” she said. “It’s better to have some protection than no protection.”

Flu outbreak spreading rapidly in U.S.

Flu season is picking up steam just in time to ruin a lot of people's holidays. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports widespread flu activity in 29 states, primarily in the South and Midwest. That's twice as many states as the previous week.

Most of the patients who have been hospitalized with severe cases of the flu are either very young or the very old. In recent days flu outbreaks have forced schools in Ohio, Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina to close.

So far this season, the virus has killed 11 children.

Describing the pattern of this year's outbreak, Dr. Anne Schuchat, director of the CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told CBS News, "There's almost like a Christmas tree right in the middle of the country of the hot spots for disease."

Thirteen states reported high levels of influenza-like illnesses, while another six states saw moderate activity.

Health experts say part of the problem is that this year's vaccine doesn't provide protection for H3N2, the strain of the influenza that's currently making the rounds. This year's vaccine does help protect against H1N1 and one or two strains of influenza B.

Earlier this month the CDC issued a health advisory stating that only 48 percent of flu virus samples taken through last month were closely related to this year's vaccine.

"Because the H3N2 is dominating, we probably will see more disease," said Schuchat. "There might be reduced protection as opposed to zero protection," she said.

However, the CDC and other health experts still recommend people go for the vaccine. At a minimum, the vaccine may prevent a more severe case of the flu if you have happen to be one of the unlucky ones this season. The shot will also protect against other strains of the flu that are still floating around.

"The stuff that's circulating out there is different than what they made the vaccine against," said CBS News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook. "Though unfortunately, as of today, it's only about 30 percent well-matched."

LaPook added this news shouldn't discourage people from getting a flu shot. Even if the vaccine is less effective than usual, it will still be better than no protection at all. "It's never too late until flu season is over. Flu season sometimes can go into May," he said.

The CDC says anyone who develops symptoms of the flu should contact their doctor immediately. Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir), two prescription antiviral drugs currently on the market, can actually lessen the time of acute illness by two days if taken early on.

Could the Ineffective Flu Shot be Causing More Severe Flu Outbreaks, Including Deaths?

YES!!

Health Impact News Editor Comments

The CDC has already admitted that this year’s influenza strain is not a good match for the current flu vaccine. And yet, as in previous years, the universal message given to the public from the government and mainstream media is to “get the flu shot anyway.”

But what if the flu shot itself is part of the problem? Is it possible that the financial investment in stockpiling flu vaccines each year creates a conflict of interest in this public health message encouraging everyone to get their flu shots, even when it is not a good match for the strains of flu currently making people sick? Could the flu shot itself be making people sick, and even causing deaths?

37 Year Old “Healthy” Woman Dies from Flu, Even Though She Received the Flu Shot

Fox 4 News in Kansas City recently reported the story of a local woman who died from flu complications just after her 37th birthday. Her family reports that she was healthy, and that she was required to receive the flu shot because she was a nursing student. Here is the report:

- See video at: http://healthimpactnews.com/2015/could-the-ineffective-flu-shot-be-causing-more-severe-flu-outbreaks-including-deaths/#sthash.kwJPyC6I.dpuf

According to Government Reports Many People are Injured or Die from the Flu Shot Every Year

Sadly, the public is never warned by the government or the mainstream media about just how deadly the flu vaccine actually is. Manufacturers of the flu vaccine are protected by law from being sued by anyone who is injured or killed by the flu vaccine. Therefore, it is a very costly and lengthy process to sue the U.S. Government and try to receive compensation for flu vaccine damages which are paid out of  the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund, which is funded by taxes paid on vaccines, and has now grown to about $3.5 BILLION. (See: GAO Report on Vaccine Court Reveals Vaccine Injured Victims Not Being Helped.)

However, a review of the quarterly reports issued by the Department of Justice showing cases in which the government has paid out damages for vaccine injuries and deaths clearly shows that the majority of cases are awarded to flu vaccine victims. This information is never published in the mainstream media, but Health Impact News publishes it. You can read the most recent report from December 2014 in which the government paid out damages to 80 people who were injured or killed by the flu vaccine: Government Pays Compensation to 80 Flu Vaccine Injuries and Deaths. Guillain-Barré Syndrome is the most common side effect and injury due to the flu vaccination.

Can the Flu Vaccine Make the Flu Even Worse?

This is one question you will never see addressed by medical authorities is the U.S. or the mainstream media. Outside of the U.S., however, this question has been asked and studied, and it has also been studied by researchers within the U.S.

This phenomenon in which the flu vaccine can actually make the flu worse was originally observed as widespread in Canada during the 2008-2009 flu season. Researchers studied the issue for the next couple of years and concluded that the flu vaccine did in fact increase the severity of flu symptoms among those who were vaccinated (see: Study finds flu shot really did make people sicker.)

The same issue was studied in Hong Kong in 2012 by comparing a group of people vaccinated with the flu vaccine against a group that used a placebo. The researchers found that those who received the flu vaccine suffered 5.5 times more incidents of similar diseases (see: Study: Flu Vaccine Causes 5.5 Times More Respiratory Infections – A True Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated Study.)

In 2013, a study conducted by microbiologist Dr. Hana Golding of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research at Bethesda in Maryland showed that pigs vaccinated against one strain of influenza were worse off if subsequently infected by a related strain of the virus (see: Vaccination may make flu worse if exposed to a second strain.)

Flu Vaccine Scam: One Scientist Speaks Out



In the video above, Dr. Mark Geier explains the fraud behind the flu vaccine. Dr. Geier is NOT anti-vaccine. He is an MD and has a PhD in genetics. He spent 10 years working at the National Institute of Health, and was a professor at John Hopkins University as a geneticist. He is also the author of over 150 peer-reviewed publications.

He worked on vaccine safety and efficacy for more than 30 years. He was one of four scientists who worked to replace the DTP vaccine, a vaccine that caused every child to become sick with a high fever at the time of vaccination, with the DTaP vaccine, which is an attenuated vaccine and causes illness due to fever in only 3% of those vaccinated.

In the video above, he explains that the flu shot causes Guillain-Barré Syndrome, and that the flu shot is not very effective in preventing the flu. He also explains that the CDC does not follow the law for vaccines in requiring long-term safety testing for the influenza vaccine like they do with other vaccines, as it is impossible to test a vaccine that changes every year. So the flu vaccine is basically an experimental vaccine that they want to give out to 300 million people every year. There are also no studies showing the safety of giving the flu vaccine to the same person every single year. However, Dr. Geier points out that the CDC is in the business of distributing flu vaccines, because they represent 300 million doses per year, whereas all the childhood vaccines together only number 20 million.

Dr. Geier goes on to explain that flu is “the wrong thing to vaccinate against” because you have to keep re-vaccinating against it every year, unlike childhood infectious diseases, such as smallpox, that are only vaccinated for once. Dr. Geier points out how ridiculous it is spend billions of dollars on a vaccine that might, at its best, save about 50 lives a year, when there are far more serious problems causing death that are more worthy of that kind of expenditure.

Be informed, don’t become a statistic of those damaged or killed by the flu vaccine! There are many other less dangerous ways to protect oneself from influenza.

26 children have died from flu as outbreak widens

Flu is now widespread in 46 states and has killed 26 children, health officials said today.

"This year is shaping up to be a bad one, particularly for people 65 and older," says Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Children younger than 5 are also at high risk of hospitalization, particularly babies under 6 months, who are too young to be vaccinated.

Flu is hitting the USA especially hard this year for two reasons.

First, the dominant flu strain in circulation is H3N2, a type that tends to cause twice as many hospitalizations and deaths as other strains of flu, Frieden says. Hospitalization rates have risen to 92 per 100,000 people, compared with 52 hospitalizations per 100,000 in a typical year.

"H3N2 is a nastier flu virus than other flu viruses," Frieden says. "Hospitalization rates in the over-65 age group are rising."

Second, the H3N2 viruses used to make this year's influenza vaccines aren't a good match to those spreading throughout the country, the CDC says. That's because about two-thirds of the H3N2 viruses in circulation have mutated significantly since vaccine production began last spring. Drugmakers tend to start making flu vaccines in the spring, in order to produce enough for the fall flu season.

"Even in a good year, the flu vaccine is not as effective as our other vaccines," Frieden says, noting that flu efficacy rates are about 60% to 65%.

Frieden says there are several ways for people to protect themselves.

Flu vaccines. While the flu shot this year may be less effective than usual, Frieden says it's not too late to get a shot. About one-third of the H3N2 viruses in circulation are a good match for those in the vaccine. And vaccines protect against three or four strains of flu. So flu shots may still protect people from other types of flu, such as strains of influenza B, which often show up later in the flu season.

The CDC recommends flu shots for everyone over the age of 6 months.

Only about half of Americans get flu vaccines, the CDC says. Doctors recommend that pregnant women get vaccinated, to provide immunity to babies in the first few months of life.

Antiviral drugs. Frieden also urged patients and doctors to make more use of antiviral drugs, such as Tamiflu and Relenza, which can reduce the risk of complications, hospitalizations and death. While the drugs are most effective if given in the first 24 hours after symptoms appear, Frieden says they may still offer some benefit after that point, especially for elderly people and others at high risk of complications.

Surveys show most Americans don't know there are prescription medicines to treat the flu, Frieden says.

"They work, but they aren't being used nearly enough," Frieden says. A study found that "fewer than one out of five high-risk outpatients who clearly should have gotten treated with antivirals, actually did."

Frieden encouraged doctors to prescribe antivirals immediately when patients have symptoms of the flu — such as fever, headache and body ache — rather than wait for definitive results from tests, which may unnecessarily delay treatment.

Some pharmacies are running short of the drugs, although manufacturers say the overall supply of antivirals is good, Frieden says.

"You may have to call around" to more than one pharmacy, Frieden says.

Pneumococcal shots. This fall, the CDC began encouraging people over age 65 to get two different vaccines against pneumococcus, a bacteria that causes pneumonia. The flu increases the risk of pneumonia, especially in the elderly.

The flu sickens millions of Americans every year, says the CDC's Joseph Bresee, which leads to hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations. Deaths from the flu can range from 5,000 to 50,000 every year, says the CDC.

The USA is about halfway through the flu season now.

Good hygiene. People should wash their hands frequently and cover their coughs, Frieden says. People who are sick should stay home and not go to work or school.

Most Americans Who Got This Season's Flu Shot Could Get Sick Anyway
1/15/15

More than three-quarters of Americans who got this season’s flu shot could get the virus anyway, given a mismatch between the flu strains covered by the shot and those actually causing illness in people, U.S. officials said.

An interim CDC report found the shot was only 23 percent effective overall, a performance about in line with what the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicted last year, experts said. At the time, CDC warned that the predominant flu virus, influenza A (H3N2), had “drifted” or changed genetically since the shot was made.

Effectiveness varies widely by age, working best in young, healthy people and least well in the elderly, a pattern reflected in the report released Thursday.

It showed effectiveness against H3N2 viruses was highest - at 26 percent - among children aged 6 months to 17 years. It was roughly 12 percent effective in people 18-49 and 14 percent effective in those 50 and older, but those estimates were not statistically significant because there was too little data at this point in the flu season.

"These estimates of vaccine efficacy are doleful, and they are entirely consistent with what the CDC told us they were likely to be based on the studies in the lab," said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

Since the CDC started doing flu vaccine studies in the 2004-2005 flu season, overall effectiveness has ranged from 10 percent to 60 percent.

The results reflect limitations in the current shots, in which flu strains for the Northern Hemisphere are selected in late February of the prior year, giving manufacturers roughly six months to make the vaccines from scratch before the start of the flu season in August.

Schaffner said this year’s predictions of which virus would be dominant were fairly accurate, in that the shot contains H3N2, a subtype associated with more severe flu seasons. The problem was that the circulating version of H3N2 mutated just enough to reduce vaccine effectiveness.

CDC epidemiologist Brendan Flannery said H3 viruses can change from year to year, but “this is a pretty major one.”


"There are some years when the virus drifts and the vaccine still provides pretty good protection. This is not one of those years," he said.

CDC still recommends vaccination because the virus could shift again before the flu season ends. For those who become sick, CDC recommends prompt treatment with antivirals such as Roche’s Tamiflu.

CDC Admits Flu Shots Fail Half the Time



Americans have never been big fans of flu shots. During the 2009 “swine flu” influenza A pandemic, only about 40 percent of adults bothered to roll up their sleeves. 1 Last year, flu vaccine rates were still just 47 percent for adults but pediatricians had vaccinated 75 percent of children under two years old. 2

Perhaps it is because parents are being thrown out of pediatricians’ offices if they don’t give their children every federally recommended vaccine – or maybe it is just because adults can talk about how they felt after getting vaccinated and infants and children under age two cannot.

How many times has someone told you: “The year I got a flu shot is the only year I got sick” or maybe you learned that the hard way yourself after getting vaccinated.

Doctors insist that just because we get sick with a fever, headache, body aches and a terrible cough that hangs on for weeks after getting vaccinated, it doesn’t mean the vaccine made us sick. They say it was just a “coincidence” because correlation does not equal causation. 3 4

Well, that may be true some of the time, but now the CDC is admitting that flu shots don’t prevent influenza most of the time. 5 In fact, studies show that a history of seasonal flu shots can even make people more susceptible to getting sick with a fever, headache, body aches and a terrible cough that hangs on for weeks! 6 But just like with pertussis infections, a lot of people also get and transmit influenza infections without showing any symptoms at all. 7 8 9

Previous Flu Shots Raised Risks for Pandemic Flu

During the 2009 swine flu pandemic, scientists in the Netherlands asked a big question: Do annual flu shots preventing natural influenza A infections in infants and young people increase their risk of illness and death when a highly pathogenic pandemic influenza strain develops and circulates? 10 The answer to that big question was “Yes” when, in 2010, Canadian health officials confirmed that school aged children and healthy young adults, who had gotten a flu shot the previous season, were at twice the risk of coming down with pandemic A swine flu in 2009 that was severe enough to require a trip to the doctor’s office. 11

Then, between 2011 and 2014, researchers in Europe published a number of studies providing evidence that immune responses to natural influenza infections and vaccinations are quite different, and very much affect the quality and length of immunity. 12

Most People Don’t Show Flu Symptoms, Vaccinated People More Likely to Get Sick

Here is what they found when they studied the 2009/2010 pandemic flu season:

First, repeated annual flu shots may hamper certain kinds of immune responses, making young vaccinated children, who have never been naturally infected with influenza virus, “more susceptible to infection with a pandemic influenza virus of a novel subtype.” 13
Second, about 75 percent of children and adults who got influenza didn’t show any symptoms, and those who did have symptoms self managed without needing medical attention. Plus, hospitalizations and death rates for confirmed influenza infections were very low in the flu pandemic.
Third, many unvaccinated persons, who did not get sick during the pandemic flu season, were “silently” infected with pandemic influenza anyway and mounted a strong T-cell immune response to the new influenza strain. 14
Fourth, compared with people who remained unvaccinated, those who got a pandemic flu shot were more likely to get sick with an “influenza like illness” (ILI) caused by a rhinovirus. 15
Rhinoviruses cause the common cold and other upper and lower respiratory infections that give you a fever, headache, body aches and a terrible cough that hangs on for weeks. So correlation does not always equal causation, but sometimes it really does.

Now let’s take a closer look at flu vaccine effectiveness and influenza related hospitalizations and deaths in the U.S.

CDC’s Influenza Morbidity & Mortality Numbers Don’t Add Up

For years, the CDC has been promoting the notion that flu shots are between 70 and 90 percent effective in preventing influenza 16 and everybody needs to get vaccinated because type A and type B influenza causes more than 200,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths in the U.S. every year. 17

Here are the facts:

FACT: There were about 2.5 million deaths in the U.S. in 2013, mostly from heart disease, cancer and other chronic diseases. About 57,000 deaths were categorized “influenza and pneumonia” with the majority occurring in people over age 65. 18Because pneumonia is not only a complication of influenza, but is also a complication of many other viral and bacterial respiratory infections, the breakdown for 2013 was about 3,700 influenza-classified deaths and 53,000 pneumonia deaths in all age groups, with 20 influenza deaths in infants under age one.19

FACT: A federal health agency reported that, in 2004, there were about 37,000 Americans hospitalized for influenza with patients over age 85 twice as likely to die. 20 The figure of 37,000 influenza hospitalizations is five times less than the number of 200,000 the CDC has been using. That is because CDC officials came up with their influenza hospitalization “guesstimate” by counting a lot of hospitalized people, who also had pneumonia, respiratory and circulatory illnesses, which they counted as probablyassociated with influenza. 21 22

FACT: Influenza-like-illness (ILI) symptoms, such as fever, sore throat, congestion, cough, body aches and fatigue that are severe enough to prompt a trip to the doctor, rarely turn out to be actual type A or B influenza infection. In the past two years, when the CDC tested specimens of influenza-like-illness cases, only between 3 percent and 18 percent were positive for type A or B influenza. 23 24 Most of the respiratory illness cases making people sick enough to seek medical care were caused by other viruses or bacteria.

So just how effective IS that flu shot your doctor tells you to get every year? 25

Flu Vaccine Effectiveness: From Zero to Low

After studying influenza infections during 2012-2013 in the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Washington and Pennsylvania, U.S. public health officials reported in 2015 that flu vaccine effectiveness was quite low: between 39 percent and 66 percent, depending upon the influenza strain. 26

Here is what else they learned:

For adults over age 65 years, vaccine effectiveness was close to ZERO.
There was “unexpectedly low vaccine effectiveness for the influenza A strain among older children compared to other age groups,” especially for those who had gotten previous annual flu shots.
S. health officials also found that unvaccinated people were more likely to report their general health status as “excellent” compared to vaccinated people.
In January 2016, U.S. government officials finally publicly admitted that flu vaccines are only 50 to 60 percent effective at preventing lab confirmed influenza requiring medical care in most years. 27  In fact, a CDC analysis of flu vaccine effectiveness for the past decade – from 2005 to 2015 – demonstrated that more than half the time, seasonal flu shots are less than 50 percent effective!

In 2004-2005, the flu shot failed 90 percent of the time, 28 and last year failed 77 percent of the time. 29 Estimates for flu shot effectiveness this year is a not very impressive 59 percent. 30

Public Health Doctors Push Ineffective, Reactive Flu Vaccine

The sad part is that public health doctors have known since the first influenza vaccine was licensed in 1945, that influenza vaccines don’t work very well. 31 3233 But that did not stop them from recommending in 2010 that every child and adult should get an annual flu shot starting at six months old and through the last year of life. 34 And by 2013, health care workers declining an annual flu shot were being fired from their jobs. 35 36 37

This is being done, despite the fact that influenza vaccine reactions causing inflammation of the nerves, known as Guillain Barre Syndrome, and other chronic health problems are the number one most compensated vaccine injuries for adults in the federal vaccine injury compensation program, 38 which has awarded more than 3.3 billion dollars to victims of government recommended vaccines under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. 39

Public Health Doctors Admit They Don’t Know Much About Flu Virus or How to Measure Immunity

This is being done, despite the fact that scientists know that there are several hundred types of type A, B, and C influenza viruses that are constantly recombining and creating new virus strains. 40 41 Public health officials admit they still do not know how to accurately predict when and how influenza viruses will mutate and which strains will be dominant in a given flu season, and they still don’t know how to measure immunity and long term protection. 42 43

In 2011, Michigan epidemiologists investigated influenza infections in healthy men and women and concluded that simply measuring the number of antibodies in the blood should not be used as a surrogate for vaccine efficacy because antibody titers “may not protect.” 44 In 2013, the CDC confirmed that high antibody titers, especially in seniors and young children, does not predict flu vaccine effectiveness. 45

If doctors have been using an inaccurate blood test to measure immunity and vaccine efficacy for 70 years, what does that say about the accuracy of 70 years of vaccine studies?

Public health officials also admit they don’t know:

how the genetic diversity of viruses and bacteria interact with human genes; 46 or
how age, natural immunity, vaccination and genetics affect individual immune responses to influenza infection; 47 or
how repeated natural infections and vaccinations affect individual and herd immunity. 48 49

National Vaccine Plan: Flu Shots From Cradle to Grave



It is shocking that government health officials have devised a National Vaccine Plan that lobbies for every single American to get a flu shot from cradle to the grave before the real science is in. 50 51 Putting vaccine policy before the science is bad public health policy. Conducting uncontrolled vaccine experiments on people, who have been taught to believe and trust government health policy and now are being forced to obey strict “no exceptions” vaccine laws, has far reaching consequences. 52
