Flu Vaccine. Is it worth the serious risks involved?

Should you have the flu vaccine this Autumn?

Many people, young and old, healthy or not, will be under pressure to have the flu vaccine. It happens every Autumn. Conventional health authorities, including our own trusted GP's, will imply that the vaccine is effective, and they will tell us that it is safe. Other organisations, even your church, may also join in the promotion! So what is the evidence?

How serious is influenza? And do we really need protection from it?
Influenza used to be a killer disease, particularly in times when poor housing and poverty reduced our resistance to it. The Conventional Medical Establishment still believes that the flu is a major killer, particularly when they want us to have the flu vaccine!  So the dangers of influenza are massaged: we are subjected to a kind of 'dodgy dossier', Iraq style!

Influenza Deaths: The Hype vs. the Evidence. This article outlines how selling big flu mortality numbers assist in selling the vaccine. It asks whether there are 200,000 or just 30,000 hospitalisations in the USA through flu. It shows how flu deaths are inflated by including many other conditions in the figures. And it shows how deaths through influenza have been dropping for many decades now.

This article examines similar information - and concludes that the threat of influenza is not as real as the conventional medical establishment wants you to think! The CDC, accused of lying here, is the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, based in the USA. This is what they say about themselves.

          "For over 60 years, CDC has been dedicated to protecting health and promoting quality of life through the prevention and control of disease, injury, and disability. We are committed to programs that reduce the health and economic consequences of the leading causes of death and disability, thereby ensuring a long, productive, healthy life for all people.

Noble aims indeed, but 'lying' about the seriousness of influenza is not mentioned as part of their task. So if they have, why have they done so? The CDC are just one of those supposedly 'independent' health organisations that actually speak with, alongside, and always in harmony, with the Big Pharma companies, and promote their values and objectives.

What official government, and supposedly independent health bodies say, therefore, cannot be trusted. We first need to know their links with Big Pharma, both in financial and personnel terms.

Is the flu vaccine effective?
Even if the threat of influenza is not as serious as we are usually told, it is still an unpleasant disease. So does the vaccine reduce the risk of suffering serious influenza? It would appear that only the Conventional Medical Establishment believes this. Most evidence points in quite another direction!

This study published in the Cochrane Library found no evidence of benefit for influenza vaccinations. It also damns the quality of flu vaccine studies by saying that the vast majority of trials were inadequate.

This study refers to 'authoritative reviews' that reveal there is a 'conspicuous absence of conclusive evidence' about effectiveness of influenza vaccines in the following groups: 
  • children under 2, 
  • healthy adults, 
  • the elderly, 
  • and healthcare workers who care for the elderly.
The flu vaccine is worthless. This article brings together a large number of statistics, studies and observations about the lack of effectiveness of the flu vaccine. It also looks at some of the dangers of the flu vaccines.

What is probably equally alarming is that the Medical industry has admitted that current flu shots are useless - so despite their sales pitch promoting it, at least parts of the industry itself, perhaps the more honest parts, admit that the flu shot is useless. The article states that the flu vaccines currently used "do not actually promote natural immunity", and asks the important question: "if current flu shots do not boost the immune response, then what, exactly, are they good for"?

          "Not much, according to a recent study published in The Lancet. Though the mainstream media widely reported that the study's findings showed an effectiveness rate of 60 percent for flu shots, actual data in the study reveal that flu shots help about 1.5 out of every 100 adults. This, of course, translates into a measly 1.5 percent effectiveness rate".

Yet there is another issue. The value of flu vaccines is not just a matter of whether they are effective, but do they actually make matters worse!

Does the annual flu vaccine increase your chances of getting flu? This article actually examines this question. It found that the vaccines actually compromised natural immunity, and can double the chance of actually contracting 'another type of flu'.

This article confirms this finding, Flu Vaccine INCREASES Risk of Serious Pandemic Flu Illness, focusing on information from the Canadian media. This article, Study finds flu shot really did make people sicker, goes over similar information.

And finally, when there is an epidemic of flu, this study indicates that it is those people who have been vaccinated who are struck down by it! In what they call 'the dirty little secret of the vaccine industry', "most people getting the flu right now are the same people who were vaccinated with the flu shot".

          "The CDC refuses to release any statistics on this, of course, because then the total hoax of the flu shot would be exposed. But I've been making phone calls to a large network of friends and professional contacts, and they're all telling me the same thing: Of the people they know who are getting sick, about two-thirds routinely get flu shots!

Reading all this evidence together strongly suggests that the flu vaccine is, indeed, useless. Yet, if the vaccines were just useless that would be bad enough. However, what is becoming increasingly clear is that they are also extremely harmful to our health.

They can, and do, cause serious disease.

What diseases can the influenza vaccines cause?
The conventional medical establishment will not tell us about any of this. Take a look at the NHS Choices website on Influenza, which, quite remarkably, does not say anything about the side-effects, or adverse reactions to the vaccine! Yet, as the following articles indicate, the flu vaccines appear to be one of the most dangerous being offered to us.

Children’s flu vaccine weakens immune system. Our immune system is central to the maintenance of our health. Even conventional medics know this - but here they are promoting a vaccine that has been linked to weakening it - thus leaving us more vulnerable to all kinds of illnesses and diseases.

This article outlines a study that found that the flu vaccines triples rates of hospitalisation of children in the USA.

This article covers research that found the Flu Vaccine caused 5.5 times more respiratory infections - yet was still able to find that the vaccine was effective!

Narcolepsy: I have recently dealt with the problem with the disease - already admitted by our government, and announced in the British Medical Journal. Narcolepsy is becoming a serious problem, which looks likely to produce a serious epidemic of this previously rare disease, if the vaccines are not withdrawn or banned soon.

This article focuses on a study that found that flu vaccines can damage your heart, as well as fetus' and infants, and asks whether the "theoretical benefits really outweigh the known harms".

This article says that Americans who had flu vaccine ran risk of developing 'paralysis disorders'. This refers mainly to Guillain-Barre Syndrome, or GBS - widely and increasingly linked to vaccines.

           ".... researchers found that among the 23 million people who were vaccinated during the scare, an additional 1.6 cases of GBS were observed per one million people vaccinated".

Febrile convulsions have also been linked to one flu vaccine in Australia.

"The rate of febrile seizures following Flavax ..... was estimated at approximately 1 per 100 doses administered among children aged six months through four years old."

As a result of this amazing rate of harm, the Australian government (who in recent years have supported mandatory medication) withdrew the vaccine - although only for children under 5 years old!

Yet older people have equal reason for avoid the flu vaccine. They are linked with dementia and Alzheimer's disease, especially when they have been taken for several years in succession.

There appears to be little doubt that flu vaccines can cause death, and indeed, it can almost certainly cause death to a greater degree than influenza itself!

This article sets the scene about the 'deadly risks of the flu vaccine. Flu shots are medical procedures that come with deadly risks.

          "In searching the year 2011 on the CDC Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System website - ( - it was found that 51 deaths were caused by the flu vaccines, along with 232 life threatening events, 116 permanent disabilities, 739 hospitalizations, 109 prolonged hospitalizations, 4,039 ER visits, and 6,221 "not serious" reports. According to the National Vaccine Information Center, fewer than one percent of all adverse vaccine reactions are ever reported. If this is true, you can add two zeros to any of the above figures to be closer to actual numbers..... Flu shots kill and maim. As stated above, 30% of flu vaccinations come with adverse reactions, and about 6% of all adverse reactions bring with them serious health events - including death". 

Yet rather than making this a matter of stark and impersonal statistics, these following examples demonstrate the more human aspects of these 'deadly risks'.

But perhaps the most frightening statistic relating to deaths caused by the flu vaccines is the 4,250% increase in fetal deaths reported to VAERS after the Flu Vaccine was given to pregnant women. You will see that on the NHS Choices website there is some mention of pregnant women. But they do not make any mention this awful statistic.

The duplicity of doctors and other health professionals.
So have you made up your mind? Do you think having the flu vaccine is something worth doing?

Well, doctors and other health professionals appear to have made up their minds - and most of them, two-thirds, are actually refusing the vaccine - despite frantic efforts to 'encourage' and cajole them into doing so. Most UK medics refusing flu vaccines - Medical Officer resorts to bullying.

So doctor's the very people who are encouraging us to have the vaccine, are not prepared to have it themselves. You may ask why this is!

Perhaps they know something they are not telling us!

Except, of course, you have now read about some of the evidence that suggests it is not a good idea. You can make a properly informed choice.
