Mercola Post: Should You Get the Flu Shot?
As I noted in the previous post, I will be 73 in March 2018.
The subject of the flu and shingles vaccines comes up frequently in my network of senior citizens.
Please read the section in the previous post about why our doctors are pushing these two vaccines for seniors.
This Mercola post provides much-needed information.
Here is a synopsis, and the link, which has a lot of information beyond the synopsis, is below.
- At the end of 2015, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) analysis revealed that, between 2005 and 2015, the influenza vaccine was less than 50 percent effective more than half of the time
- During the 2015/2016 flu season, FluMist, the live virus nasal spray, had a failure rate of 97 percent. The CDC did not recommend it last year and still recommends against using it during the 2017-2018 flu season
- Shoulder injuries related to vaccine administration, which includes chronic pain, limited range of motion, nerve damage and frozen shoulder, are typically the result of the injection being administered too high on the arm
- The 2016-2017 flu vaccine, which was very well-matched to circulating viral strains and hailed as “one of the most effective in years,” turned out to be another dismal failure
- The vaccine had no clear effect in those between the ages of 18 and 49. Ditto for the elderly. Among young children, the effectiveness was about 60 percent. In other age groups, the effectiveness topped out at 42 percent
Additionally, the flu shot still has mercury in it.
Drug store employees are not properly trained in all cases to administer the shot and would likely have no training of what to do if there is a dangerous reaction.
There is mounting evidence that multiple flu shots reduce your ability to handle the flu.
Immunologists are quite clear that they do not fully understand the human immune system.
Vaccines have many, many unintended consequences that are detrimental to human health. These consequences are well documented, but are not discussed widely by mainstream media.
One of the better vaccine informational sites is the National Vaccine Information Center, NVIC.org.
