135 MILLION doses of influenza vaccines are given each year and the numbers are rising. While the public health hype and marketing has been extremely effective, how effective is the vaccine?
Peter Doshi, Ph.D., states that flu vaccines are less effective and cause more side effects than alleged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “The vaccine may be less beneficial and less safe than has been claimed, and the threat of influenza seems to be overstated,” Doshi says. Mandatory vaccination polices have been enacted, often in healthcare facilities, forcing some people to take the vaccine under threat of losing their jobs.
Even when the vaccine is closely matched to the type of influenza that’s prevalent, (which doesn’t happen every year), randomized, controlled trials of healthy adults found that vaccinating between 33 and 100 people resulted in ONLY ONE less case of influenza.
There is no solid research to back the claims that flue vaccines save lives. Further more, there is no solid proof that the flu vaccine is safe. Quite the contrary, an Australian study that found one in every 110 children under the age of five had convulsions following vaccinations in 2009 for H1N1 influenza. Additional investigations found that the H1N1 vaccine was also associated with a spike in cases of narcolepsy among adolescents.
There are three reasons the government tells the elderly why they should get flu shots: secondary pneumonia, hospitalization, and death. Yet a study by the Cochrane group studied hundreds of thousands of people and found it offered zero protection for those three things in the general community. One study found that the flu shot was only 9% effective in protecting seniors against the 2012-2013 season’s most virulent influenza bug.
What’s even worse is that small children who are given the flu vaccine get no protection from the disease. “The government also says that every baby over the age of six months should have a vaccine, and they know it contains a dose of mercury that is toxic to the brain,” says Dr. Blaylock. “They also know the studies have shown that the flu vaccine has zero — zero — effectiveness in children under five.”
The mercury contained in vaccines is such a strong immune depressant that a flu shot suppresses immunity for several weeks. “This makes people highly susceptible to catching the flu,” he says. “They may even think the vaccine gave them the flu, but that’s not true — it depressed their immune system and then they caught the flu.”
And even worse than getting the flu is that Mercury overstimulates the brain for several years. One study found that those who get the flu vaccine for three to five years increase their risk of Alzheimer’s disease 10-fold.
