5 Reasons Why I’ll Never Get a Flu Shot

Daisy Luther, Contributor
Activist Post

If you’re looking for a deeply scientific treatise on the flu shot, this isn’t it.

I’m not a chemist, a physician or someone with an advanced degree in biology. I’m just a mom with an Internet connection. I’m a person who has researched and compiled an assortment of worrisome facts that point in one direction: the flu shot is NOT beneficial.

Some of these reasons are backed up by science, and others are an acceptance of that little voice of reason whispering “Something just isn’t right about this.” As a reader, you are welcome to take my personal instinct with a grain of salt. I strongly encourage you to do your own independent research and come to your own conclusions. Look for sources that are not linked to the dollars being earned from these flu shots – no Big Pharma funded studies, no CDC, no FDA. Check out the funding for the studies that you cite and then judge the findings accordingly.

First of all, it just doesn’t work.

The propaganda machine will tell you that the flu shot is “60% effective”, but this is a blatant manipulation of the statistics. This article published last year at Natural News explains how the numbers are “massaged” to present the picture that Big Pharma (who funds the research) wants presented. In actuality, the flu shot prevents the flu in only 1.5 out of 100 adults. You can wade through the abstract at The Lancet here.

1.5%. Let that sink in. That means that you have a 98.5% chance it WON’T work. Why would anyone possibly have something foreign injected into his or her body with those odds?

Part of the reason it is ineffective it because it’s guesswork. Scientists must attempt to predict which 3 viruses (of the over-300 influenza viruses that have been identified) will be the most prevalent during a given year. If you get the flu shot and are then exposed to virus #4-300, you will have no additional immunity to those.

Natural News just published an article yesterday that tells us many of the people being struck down in the current epidemic have received vaccinations, which clearly did not have the desired effect.

Secondly, there are horrible things in the flu shot.

The flu shot contains some incredibly nasty stuff. Obviously it contains the virus itself, either “dead” or “attenuated” (weakened). But it also contains a host of other harmful toxins. The inclusion of these toxins is not speculation – you can read the CDC’s ingredients lists of the common vaccines in the United States HERE. Following is a little primer giving some information on the toxic ingredients that you can find in the CDC’s ingredients lists. Take the time to cross-match these toxins to the vaccine that is given in your area. You have the right to request the ingredients insert before you take the vaccine or subject your child to it.
  • 2-Phenoxyethanol is an anti-bacterial agent being used as a replacement for the preservative Thimerosal (mercury). It’s considered a very toxic material that could cause a boatload of side effects, including behavioral disorders … vomiting … diarrhea … visual disturbances … convulsions … rapid heart rate … central nervous system disorders … depression … kidney, liver and blood disorders … and reproductive defects.
  • Aluminum shows up in vaccines in many forms – like aluminum phosphate, aluminum hydroxy phosphate sulfate and aluminum hydroxide, to name a few. It works as an “adjuvant” to stimulate your immune system’s response to the virus in the vaccine. The problem is … aluminum is a particularly dangerous neurotoxin. It has the ability to slip past your body’s natural defenses and enter your brain – potentially causing brain damage … Alzheimer’s disease … dementia … convulsions … and coma. Human and animal studies have shown that aluminum can even cause nerve death.
  • Ammonium Sulfate is a substance commonly added to pesticides. It’s not known at this time if it’s cancer-causing, but it has been suspected of gastrointestinal, liver, nervous system and respiratory system toxicity.
  • Beta-Propiolactone ranks high as a hazardous chemical on at least five federal regulatory lists. It caused lymphomas and hepatomas after being injected into lab mice, but its true effect on humans is not known. Due to animal study results, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified beta-propiolactone as a possible human carcinogen.
  • Formaldehyde is used as a preservative to stabilize the vaccine. It’s a colorless, flammable, strong-smelling chemical that’s mostly used in industry to manufacture building materials and produce many household products. Plus, it’s also used to embalm – and preserve – dead bodies. (Remember the frog in your high school biology lab?) Formaldehyde is suspected of weakening the immune system and causing neurological system damage … genetic damage … metabolic acidosis (excessive blood acidity) … circulatory shock … respiratory insufficiency … and acute renal (kidney) failure. It’s been classified as a known human carcinogen (cancer-causing substance) by IARC and is ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds on at least eight federal regulatory lists.
  • Formalin helps preserve the vaccine. It’s a mixture of formaldehyde, methanol and water. It’s mostly used to preserve tissue samples in health care laboratories and presents the same danger to your health as formaldehyde does.
  • Gentamicin Sulfate is an antibiotic that ‘s been known to cause deafness or loss of equilibrioception (sense of balance). It can also be highly nephrotoxic (damage your kidneys) if multiple doses accumulate over time.
  • Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) excites and poisons your cells and tissues. It’s used as a stabilizer in vaccines and is also found in many processed foods. MSG has been shown to cause retinal degeneration … behavior disorders … learning disabilities … reproductive disorders … obesity … and even lesions on the brains of lab animals. Allergic reactions to MSG can be severe.
  • MRC-5 Cellular Protein is human diploid cells taken from aborted human fetuses. They’re used as a culture to grow the virus.
  • Neomycin is an antibiotic that has been shown to have multiple effects on your body. It can be a neurotoxin and an ototoxin (affect hearing and balance). It also can cause respiratory paralysis, kidney damage and kidney failure. Plus, it retards your vitamin B6 absorption, sometimes leading to mental retardation and epilepsy. Some allergic reactions to neomycin can be life threatening.
  • Octoxinol-9 is a vaginal spermicide.
  • Phenol is included in vaccines to help stimulate immune response. Instead, it does the opposite – by inhibiting phagocytic activity. Phagocytes are your body’s first line of defense. They engulf and digest antigens and activate the other elements of your immune system. Phenol’s phagocytic-inhibiting effect actually hinders your immune system from properly dealing with the pathogens that are entering your body through the vaccine.
  • Phenol is used in the production of drugs, weed killers and synthetic resins, so you can imagine the effect it has on the human body. It’s considered to be toxic to your cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, nervous, reproductive and respiratory systems … your liver … your kidneys … and your skin. Phenol is so deadly that is was used by the Nazis as a means of extermination during the World War II. Phenol injections were given to thousands of people in concentration camps – especially at Auschwitz-Birkenau – to kill those who were mentally ill, had incurable tuberculosis and were permanently incapable of work.
  • Polymyxin B is an antibiotic with some nasty side effects – neurotoxicity and acute renal tubular necrosis (the most common cause of kidney failure).
  • Polysorbate 80 (Tween-80) works as a stabilizer in the vaccine. It’s used in a wide variety of products including ice cream, milk products, vitamin tablets, lotions and creams and medical products like vaccines and anti-cancer medications. But it’s not as safe as it sounds. According to the December 2005 issue of Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, polysorbate 80 can affect your immune system and cause severe anaphylactic shock, which can kill. It also causes cancer in animals.
  • Streptomycin is an antibiotic. Its main side effect is ototoxicity – the loss of hearing.
  • Thimerosal is used as a preservative in the vaccine. It contains 49.6% mercury by weight and has been implicated in many health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease … autism … seizures … mental retardation … hyperactivity … dyslexia … and many more nervous system conditions. The mercury used in vaccines is second in toxicity only to the radioactive substance, Uranium. It’s a powerful neurotoxin that can damage the entire nervous system of an infant in no time.
  • Plus, the inclusion of aluminum and even formaldehyde with the mercury in the vaccine magnifies the problem. Aluminum can make the mercury 100 times more toxic. Toss in formaldehyde as well, and one independent study found that mercury toxicity was increased by 1,000 times. Source
There is a risk of terrible side effects.

I’d honestly rather take my chances with the flu than to have myself injected with something that carries the risk of such side effects on the off-chance (the 1.5% off-chance) that I might avoid catching the 1% of viruses that the shot “protects” me from.

The CDC itself warns:

Mild Problems
  • soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given
  • hoarseness; sore, red or itchy eyes; cough
  • fever
  • aches
  • headache
  • itching
  • fatigue
If these problems occur, they usually begin soon after the shot and last 1-2 days.

Moderate Problems
  • Young children who get inactivated flu vaccine and pneumococcal vaccine (PCV13) at the same time appear to be at increased risk for seizures caused by fever. Ask your doctor for more information.
  • Tell your doctor if a child who is getting flu vaccine has ever had a seizure.
Severe Problems
  • Life-threatening allergic reactions from vaccines are very rare. If they do occur, it is usually within a few minutes to a few hours after the shot.
  • In 1976, a type of inactivated influenza (swine flu) vaccine was associated with Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS). Since then, flu vaccines have not been clearly linked to GBS. However, if there is a risk of GBS from current flu vaccines, it would be no more than 1 or 2 cases per million people vaccinated. This is much lower than the risk of severe influenza, which can be prevented by vaccination.
But what they don’t tell you is that not all adverse reactions are reported and that when they are, the statistics are doctored to keep the do-good reputation of the shot untarnished.
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. Source
Also, consider cases like that of Desiree Jennings, the Washington Redskins cheerleader who suffered a paralyzing nerve disorder after receiving her seasonal flu shot. Not only did the industry refuse to compensate her for her trauma and enormous medical bills, vicious attempts were made to publically discredit her.
Jennings was a fit and healthy cheerleader up until August when she got a seasonal flu shot. Ten days after the shot she began experiencing flu like symptoms, followed by severe convulsions and black outs. After seeing around 60 doctors, Jennings was eventually diagnosed with dystonia, a paralyzing neurological disorder that causes the muscles to relentlessly contract and spasm, causing extreme difficulties with walking, talking and general body movements. 
Despite the fact that doctors who vigorously examined her condition at both Fairfax Inova and Johns Hopkins confirmed that she was suffering from dystonia, and that the cause of the illness was her reaction to the flu shot, numerous apologists for big pharma have ludicrously claimed that her story is a hoax and that her disease is imaginary, citing no evidence whatsoever and having had no contact with Jennings at all.
Next, I do not trust the FDA.

FDA approval means less than nothing to me. If the FDA approves it, it just means that the company behind it has enough money and clout to get it approved. I do not trust the FDA to look out for the best interests of me, my children, or anyone else’s children, for that matter. I wrote an article last year regarding the FDA and here are some of the observations that really show the agenda of the agency:
  • The FDA wants to be in control of ALL things ingested by the American people. The FDA is simply an enforcing tentacle of the big business organized crime syndicate that actually runs the United States, and is thus complicit in the plans of the New World Order. 
  • The FDA can overlook the horrible side effects and suicides caused by anti-depressant pharmaceuticals while attempting to ban the sale of St. John’s Wort, a remedy that has been used successfully for hundreds of years.
  • The FDA can bypass the deadly e-coli outbreaks occurring in massive factory farms where the animals are squeezed in so compactly that they can’t turn around, but they want to prosecute an organic farmer for using manure as compost.
  • The FDA can cheerfully tell the American people, “Don’t worry, there’s nothing to see here” with regard to the ever-rising radiation levels in milk but they want to raid the dairies of an Amish man who sells milk right from the cow, as it has been consumed for centuries.
  • The FDA wholeheartedly supports genetic modification of our crops and livestock. The FDA endorses additives and preservatives. The FDA promotes chemical pharmaceuticals over gentle natural remedies.
MSM’s Constant Endorsement

And finally, when the media pushes it, I automatically decline. Seriously – anytime there is a big hype or something is made to be mandatory, my gut tells me “This isn’t good.” Look at all of the commercials for anti-depressants. Look at all the soothing newscasters telling us how “we don’t have to suffer.” Look at how GMOs are being promoted as the answer to world hunger. Real journalism is all but dead and can only be found in alternative media sources.

The mainstream media is Public Enemy #1, a group of corporate whores who put on make-up and a pretty outfit in order to seduce the public into believing what the puppet masters want them to believe. The media is owned by the same tie-wearing serial killers who own Big Pharma, government agencies and the financial industry.

It may sound illogical but I firmly believe the MSM is complicit in the overthrow of personal sovereignty. Therefore, if something is heartily endorsed by them I am immediately suspicious. I refuse to be submissively led along by the folks on the tube. When they repeat something over and over, at the very least it requires close and careful investigation, if not all-out rejection of what they are saying. There is nearly ALWAYS an agenda and that agenda is nearly always one that crushes liberty or health in the name of power or money.

Any mainstream article on the flu that you read states some form of the following: ”The best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu shot.” It is a not-so-subtle brainwashing. It hearkens back to the theories of Nazi Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels.
  • “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”
  • “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”
  • “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”
This programming has allowed many organizations to make the flu shot a term of participation, with little outcry from the public. Workplaces, schools and other activities across the US and Canada have instituted policies that force all participants to receive a flu shot. Longterm hospital employees have been fired for refusing to have the toxin injected into themselves. Children have been banned from pre-schools and daycares in 6 states. In brighter news, widespread refusal of healthcare workers in British Columbia has resulted in the province dropping the policy for the remainder of the year.

I don’t believe that all health care professionals and flu-shot advocates have ill-intent. I think that many of them have just sipped the mainstream media Kool-aid – the tale-spinners of Big Pharma have slipped in just enough truth to make their theories believable. Many people are deep-down decent and have difficulty believing that such a perverse money/power agenda could exist.

Mandatory policies of this nature always trigger a suspicious response from me. They whisper the ominous words “soft-kill eugenics” to me. No, I don’t have proof of this, but I’d rather err on the side of longevity. I’ll take the risk of illness that my healthy immune system can fight off over the risk of being forcibly inoculated with whatever toxins the creators of these vaccines choose to include. I’ll use my little arsenal of home remedies and come through it without the risk of long-term side effects that have yet to be discovered (or at least, have yet to be made public).

What do you think about the flu shot?

Did you take the vaccine? Why or why not? Please feel free to share links to any interesting sources or studies on this topic.

Daisy - I was one of those people in 1976 who were given the immunization in school against Swine Flu. I did not acquire GB. However, fast-forward 3 decades later, and the US begins advocating swine flu vaccines again...upon the guise of a threatened epidemic. I talked with my Internal Medicine doctor about this, and he said he was not taking the swine flu vaccine either, agreeing with me that the RAPID manufacture of that vaccine raised lots of questions about safety. Also, I did not want any more swine flu serum injected into me, for fear some latent reaction would flare up from the previous debacle in 1976. Since then, the US has been combining the swine flu serum with the regular flu serum. I have not taken the flu vaccine since that mystery began...I guess they had lots of extra doses of swine flu serum to use??? I feel as you do about the dangerous ingredients and the failed success rate of the flu vaccine, as well as many other vaccines, too. Good flu prevention is staying out of the malls and other public places, washing - washing - washing your hands and stop touching your hands to your face, support your immunity with good food, good water, vitamin D3, B vitamins, and others.

ACCORDING TO HUGH FUDENBURG, MD - the world's leading immunogenetisit and 13th most quoted biologist of our time (nearly 850 papers in peer review journals) - If an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970 - 1980 (the years of the study) his/her chance of developing Alzheimer's Disease is 10 times greater than if they had 1, two or no shots. When asked why Dr. Fudenberg stated that it is due to the mercury and aluminum buildup that is in EVERY flu shot (and in almost all childhood shots). The gradual mercury and aluminum buildup in the brain causes cognitive dysfunction. ALZHEIMERS is now expected to QUADRUPLE.

Dr. Fudenberg's comments are from his speech at the NVIC International Vaccine Conference, Arlington VA September, 1997.

Alzheimers to Quadruple statement is from the John's Hopkins Newsletter of November, 1998.

Another article which lies about its sources:

"In actuality, the flu shot prevents the flu in only 1.5 out of 100 adults. You can wade through the abstract at The Lancet here."

Well, the abstract is only a few paragraphs; it doesn't take much wading, and what it reports is nothing like what the author asserts (ie he is lying and hoping you won't "wade through" the abstract.

Here is what it actually says:

We screened 5707 articles and identified 31 eligible studies (17 randomised controlled trials and 14 observational studies). Efficacy of TIV was shown in eight (67%) of the 12 seasons analysed in ten randomised controlled trials (pooled efficacy 59% [95% CI 51—67] in adults aged 18—65 years).... Efficacy of LAIV was shown in nine (75%) of the 12 seasons analysed in ten randomised controlled trials (pooled efficacy 83% [69—91]) in children aged 6 months to 7 years... Vaccine effectiveness was variable for seasonal influenza: six (35%) of 17 analyses in nine studies showed significant protection against medically attended influenza in the outpatient or inpatient setting. Median monovalent pandemic H1N1 vaccine effectiveness in five observational studies was 69% (range 60—93)."

There is nothing there about the vaccine being effective in only "1.5%" of cases. When someone lies to me upfront, I confront their lie and stop reading. I suggest you all look at the Lancet abstract to confirm that it shows that flue vaccines are moderately successful and in no way confirms the bald-faced lie of the author,who hopes you are too lazy to check out his sources.

I'm 54 years old. Had my last flu shot in about 1970. Thank goodness no reaction. I have not had the flu in over 30 years. I expose myself to sick people, within reason, to strengthen my immune system. My kids - now 24-21-18 - have never had a flu shot or the flu. We are not drinking the kool-aid. Daisy is right on and I also talk to whoever will listen to me. Thank you Daisy for the additional talking points and research. If you don't stop talking, I won't stop talking either!

This is the sad story of Tuesday. Tuesday was a wild cat I rescued as a kitten - I had the privilege of living with him for almost 20 years. But the last year of his life was a horror. He got his shot updates - went blind and from what I know now it also destroyed his kidneys. If you have an old cat or dog child, think twice about getting them their shots - it is not worth it.

Sorry to be a wet blanket, but as we are now in the midst of an influenza epidemic with two strains of A and one of B, I thank God that I got my flu shot in October and I am able to care for the scores of influenza cases that I am seeing without catching it, and I also thank God for Tamiflu that can terminate the 104 degree fever in the 6 year old that is deathly ill and see the joy of the parents when the child recovers.

and none of you even mentioned the evidently unstate-able chipping concern. overly paranoid perhaps? could be, but now that the Supreme Court has upheld a Texas high school's right to require students to wear a chipped i.d., my thought is that chipping everyone is down the pike, and mandatory flu shots (was there not talk of that just this week in the "news"?) would be an obvious choice for internalizing.

I got a flu shot 2 years ago. 3 or 4 days after getting the shot, I came down with Bell's Palsy. The left side of my face went numb and paralysed. My doctor insists the Bell's Palsy has nothing to do with the shot. I don't buy it.
An acquaintance of mine, a nurse at a local hospital, said Bell's Palsy is one of the possible side effects of the flu shot. She said alot of people who get the shot come down with Bell's Palsy.. She urges her patients against getting a flu shot, one of the major reasons being the chance of coming down with Bell's Palsy. She said she could get fired for her advice. I believe that.
I didn't tell her I had Bell's Palsy. I ran into her about two weeks after getting it, she looked at me and said, "Joe,you have Bell's Palsy". Before I could answer her, she asked me, "Did you get the flu shot?"
Thanks you for your article warning your readers about the hazards of the flu shot : The flu shot is insidious. Joe

This article is basically illiterate, unscientific and rumor garbage. And the author wants us to think she is more credible than the mainstream media which is also miserable? Has Ms.Daisy ever heard of the old adage, "Garbage in, garbage out?" It's not worthy of any intelligent comment or debate so I'm not going to attempt one.

1 Illiterate. Example please, Thomas.
2.Unscientific. Ditto please, Thomas.
FYI, science is defined as knowing some facts, establishing a hypothesis, and then making predictions based on that hypothesis. You have done none of these things, so from what we can see, you are the only one on this page who is unscientific.
Refute please Thomas.
3.Rumor garbage. This woman has established many facts about the ingredients in vaccines. You have only generated a rumour that is entirely lacking in substance.
Refute please Thomas.
Finally, please comment on this gold standard report, which states categorically, rather than promoting a rumour, that for every 100 persons vaccinated in an average flu season, only one of them will be protected from the symptoms caused by the prevailing A or B flu strain.
Please hand in your PhD on your way out; it seems abundantly obvious that you must have bought it online. What was it in ? Geography maybe? Social Psychology ? Talmud Studies?

ps when you get back up off the floor, perhaps you could also apply your considerable mental acumen to denying the well-established truth that vaccination destroys the population of CD8 memory T cells, which reduce the virulence of subsequently-acquired similar infections.

I am a retired nurse. I received the flu vaccine once and will NEVER take it again! In 1976 I was 'required' to have the vaccine for my job at a large hospital. Unknowingly I was allergic to thimerosal. The reaction I had was unbelievable! To top it off that was the year they gave the attenuated vaccine and I also caught a "mild" case of the flu probably because of my allergic reaction (so the doctor said). Since then I have refused to take the vaccine. Only ONCE have I come down with the flu in all these years of not taking the vaccine! I have worked in clinics, hospitals, doctors offices, and raised 3 children during this time. Common sense and maintaining good personal & family health practices goes a long way to preventing disease, in my opinion.

Those that continue to live in their little boxed up lives and believe the lies of those in control, will never listen to reason or facts about things of this nature. Thank you Daisy! I'm with you 100%. I wrote a thesis for college years ago titled, "An Over-medicated Society." The facts I read, while doing the research, were beyond belief and many times brought me to tears... If 'they' only knew!

i was one of the unfortunate victims of the 1976 flu prison at the time.

everyone, EVERYONE! who was injected ended up getting sick. guards, administrators and inmates. there were not even enough 'well people' to run the cafeteria, much less to man security and other areas.

never had flu, before or since. but i was left with auto-immune disease, and a host of other syndromes. also, i nearly died from it.

i never get immunisations anymore. i don't allow them for my daughter, who was damaged by the very first dpt coctail they give to infants.

we never, NEVER get sick, even when the immunised kids are getting whooping cough, measles, mumps or chicken pox... we never get sick!

About 6-7 years ago my wife and i got the flu shot and about a week later we were both seek with high fever and in bed. We do not beleive in the flu shot and we refuse to get it. A few month ago my daughter's school made it mandatory which are bot happy about it, she got the flu shot and about a week later she was sick and got everyone in the house sick. That is why i dont beleive in injecting myself with toxic.

Vaccination lacks proper scientific validation.

Since the late 18th century when Edward Jenner pioneered the smallpox vaccine, it was accepted without rigorous scientific proof that vaccination is immunization. But there is a logical inconsistency here, in that vaccinating with cowpox was believed to immunize against smallpox. This violates vaccination's presumed principle of antibody specificity.

During the entire history of vaccination, not one independent, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover, scientific experiment has been conducted on vaccination.

Vaccination is not based on science, it is based on faith.

Personally I have never had a flu shot, and never will.
It seem to be a very hit and miss vaccine to me.
And why their obsession with everyone having it? I don’t trust them or their vaccination.

Dr Thomas Baldwin Is a shill at best and I hope he continues receiving all of the shots he defends as being harmless and I haven't seen a doctor in 30 years so I never get sick. Doctors kill and most are useless or even worse.

I do NOT get the flu shot... for all of the same reasons that you posted about. I have observed those around me who have gotten the vaccine and how they still battle with the flu every year. I'm not a fan of doing stuff that doesn't work! After my battle with ITP (a blood disorder), in which many Dr.'s told me that there was no explanation on how I got it and that there was no cure.... Here I am, 3 years later, completely cured. No thanks to the FDA and all there wacko drugs! Much thanks to a natural Dr. and his vitamin and herb recommendations!

So that's 69-75% effectiveness IF they manage to pick the right strain for the season? Still a fail, buddy. Add the fact that they frequently do not guess correctly and I think 1.5 sounds about right. Every single person I know who gets their flu shot every year (and thinks I am crazy for not) gets the flu. I have not had the flu in 30 years even when exposed.

In 1973 I was on active duty USN . I was ordered in to receive a Flu vaccination . I have not had one since and will never have another , altho I have fad the flu a few times since that HORRIBLE vaccine . The illness after
that shot was worse than any before or after .

Queen Elizabeth, the richest woman on earth, has never received a vaccination for anything. The same is true for other super-wealthy oligarchs such as David Rockefeller.

In 1976, President Ford received a swine flu inoculation in front of the press as a publicity stunt. Many suspect that he was injected with harmless saline solution, because the vaccine itself was very risky. Thousands of Americans were paralyzed by the vaccine and sued the US government for $3.5 billion.

I would love to see President Obama or Bill Gates set the example for us, and get a flu vaccination. But it must be the real thing, not simply distilled water. It will never happen because they know the truth about vaccination.

I don't believe in the flu shot for the very reasons stated by the author. I did come down with the flu this season, first time in over 15 years, and I work with students all the time! I figure I am now good to go for at least another 15 years. It's better to keep your immune system up to speed with good organic nutrition and by avoiding sugars and other toxic junk (western meds and GMOs included) that weaken your immune system.

On December 11 I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy. I took the Flu shot 4 days before. I was perfectly healthy before I got the Flu shot. I really believe it has caused this. It is 5 1/2 weeks since and I am still suffering with paralysis in my face. I couldn't drive for 3 weeks because my vision was impaired. I could hardly talk. This is a terrible condition and I will NEVER take the Flu shot again!!

Last time I got influenza was in April 1993. It made me very sick. I have not had it again. If I ever get it again, I know what to do and I will not go to a hospital unless I think I am ready to die.
Every time I go to a doctor, be it the orthopaedic doctor who keeps an eye on my knee, or any doctor at all, even for a routine examination, I am asked if I have had a flu shot. I reply that I have never had a flu shot and have not had influenza in nearly 20 years. They do not persist in trying to push the flu shot to me.
They are required to ask certain questions when they see me, and the question about the flu vaccination always comes up. I do not get angry with them, but I am not going to take that shot.

Admit it: As a strategy to reduce global population, vaccination is absolutely brilliant — supremely evil, but brilliant.

The global elite have found conventional warfare to be disappointing at reducing population. World War 1 required 4 years to kill about 17-million people. World War 2 required 6 years to kill about 70-million.

Among the problems with modern industrialized warfare is that it is expensive, requires social cohesion, kills mostly those in the warring nations, and takes a heavy toll on infrastructure. As a result, the neutron bomb was developed to kill people but leave infrastructure untouched. But this approach also has many practical problems.

Vaccination is simpler and infinitely cheaper than neutron-bomb warfare because it is self-funding. Vaccines cost pennies per dose, but the victims willingly pay a hefty markup and thus generate obscene profits for the pharmaceutical companies. Because of this and other advantages, large-scale medical warfare has now supplanted conventional warfare as the preferred method for reducing population.

The major negative is that vaccination is a slow, long-term strategy that usually doesn't kill immediately. Instead it assaults the human immune system resulting in a plethora of chronic diseases and reduced life expectancy. Vaccination is augmented with other methods of attacking the immune system and reducing fertility such as mass-medication, ionizing radiation, environmental toxins, genotoxic food contaminants, neurotoxic food additives, perverse dietary advice, and nutrient-impoverished food supplies.

The slowness of this soft kill may be seen as a major negative, but this drawback can be exploited to transfer the financial assets of the sick and dying to the medical sector, just as conventional war creates massive wealth transfers to the industrial sector.

Vaccination is unmatched for precision targeting. Every human on earth from pole to pole can be targeted by race, religion, nationality, social class, occupation, zip code, street address, etc. Incredible!

Vaccination is promoted as an impediment to epidemics. But vaccination is an important causative factor in a controlled epidemic of intractable chronic diseases being used by the global elite to kill billions and reduce a troublesome global population.

There are many people that suffer from Multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and should never ever get one of these vaccines. I personally suffer from this and was told by 3 toxicologists to never get a flu or other vaccine.

Here are links to all the 2012 approved Flu vaccines' inserts. Read them.


Most are much less effective on geriatric subjects and immune compromised patients.

Most content 25mcg of mercury.

The FluMist should NEVER be used on patients with asthma.

READ THE INSERTS and then make a REAL informed decision.

I have to add my two cents....I have never had a flu shot and haven't had the flu in 20-30 years. My grandson who is 4, got the flu shot this year [he wouldn't have if it had been up to me] and had the flu for Christmas. Thanks Big Pharma!

I get a flu shot every October as a precaution to getting the flu in the winter. I have never gotten sick from getting a flu shot and as long as I get one, I do not get the flu. In other words, it works like a charm for me everytime. A few years back (2005) there was a shortage of the vaccine and I wasn't able to get a flu shot. And sure enough, I came down with the flu and was so sick I wanted to die. While it's always better to rely on your own natural immune system to prevent getting the flu, I believe that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound (or two) of cure. There is no way of determining what the long term health risks are of getting a flu shot every year, but it does work for me and keeps me from getting the flu.

Thanks Daisy, keep talking, I am the grandmother to a vaccine injured( HepB) beautiful grandaughter who can't walk, talk, see or understand but is the greatest joy in our lives. Born typical and immediately injured by the shot..seizures and then the world of special needs. In the past five years I have researched too many hours and have been just shocked too many times with what I find...I do not believe the medical community anymore and I so wish my own kids weren't vaccinated years ago..I know now the asthma, allergies and sensitivity incidents would not have happened! All people need to do is research, read, ask questions and if your healthy stay away from the dr's. Unvaccinated children are much healthier then vaccinated to the parents, families, educators of non-vac kids, they'll tell you...too many medical issues are arising for our kids at an alarming, epidemic rate, something is causing it and vaccines sure have something to do with it!!!

Wow, this is perhaps one of the most selfish articles I've ever read. For those of us who are at high risk of serious illness or death from complications of the flu, I'd like to remind you that you get a flu shot to protect yourself, but you also get a flu shot to help protect the vulnerable around you. This is especially true for those at high risk who cannot get a flu vaccine because they are allergic to eggs (eggs are used in the production of the vaccine or because the flu vaccine is unlikely to work for them (immune compromised due to transplant or autoimmune disorders). Truth is the flu kills hundreds if not thousands of people every year. Hope it's not someone you love.

I worked in assisted living while I was in college. It was optional, but I received the flu vaccine in order to help protect my elderly and/or immunocompromised clients. This was my first flu shot ever. I became horribly sick, with the flu, within a couple of days following vaccination. This was 4 years ago. I had never been sick with the flu before then nor have I been ill with any flu-like symptoms since. I can also remember the numerous clients, freshly vaccinated, who became sick throughout flu season. I have remained in the medical field and all I shall say is that if you are not already questioning the merit of getting an annual flu shot, I would be wary of getting the flu shot and thinking that a) you will be protected from infection b) you will not be spreading the flu if vaccinated, and c) that if you are healthy you really need it at all.

It would actually be quite selfish if this is known to not speak out about it. None of the flu shot advocates have even tried to refute anything in the article except the first point. What about all the harmful chemicals that the CDC has admitted point blank are in the flu vaccine? The flu shot advocates just ignore that and call the attention brought to them "selfish and uneducated." I'd laugh if it weren't over a matter like this. You can google "Bill Gates Admits Vaccines Are Used For Human Depopulation" and you'll see and hear the truth about this as clear as clear as it can be.

This is just one sign of something more serious, all- this world is spinning out of control like the Bible predicted (read Matthew 24). Seek to be right with God and seek what He has said in His word (start in the gospels), forsake all attitudes and deeds which are evil IN GOD'S EYES (know the ten commandments listed in Exodus 20 and the Sermon on the mount in Matthew 5-7 inside out), call on Jesus Christ as LORD as well as Savior (He is both and must be received as both), seek His help to be holy, obey His Word, and cling to Him by faith through prayer for dear life- that is our only hope- a totally sure hope- He is the Rock. Trust Him and He'll see you through this life and most importantly save you regarding the next at the day of judgment.

In 1973, I drank the Kool-Aid and received the "recommended" flu shot. I came down with the flu within 24 hours, and I was so sick that I did lay in bed like a dead horse for 5 weeks or so. It took me 6 months to fully recover after that bout of the flu. I can understand why people die from the disease.

Since then, I have never received another flu shot (fool me once...), and I have not had the flu since either. I seldom ever get colds either, maybe twice within the past 30 years.

I work in a high contact area in a national training center whereby at least 1,000 new students show up every week, bringing with them lots of communicable diseases. Keep your immune system healthy with good, healthy foods (non-GMO, non-junk, non-floridated, etc.), and practice good hygiene.

I will never again get any vaccinations. I am much healthier without them. I don't buy what "they" tout as good for you at all. "They" lie to make a buck or to move their agenda forward.

Hi I'm 43 y/o and was vaccinated a year and a half ago, for Hep-b and Tdap. On the fifth day after the vaccines I began to have chest pain, numbness in my fingers and arms, a heavy lead like felling in my arms, extreme muscle fatigue from doing basic things that I could do easily prior. I had neck and back pain, tender points all over my body that felt bruised, I was exhausted and had ringing in my ears, I developed a tremor with movement and all over muscle spasms and my legs from my feet to my knees went numb and tingly like they fell asleep but it was constant all day long. I had strange feeling in my throat like my back of my tounge would go numb and a migraine (1st ever in my life)like the worst headache ever. Many of the symptoms took many weeks to go away, but the numbness lasted 8 months and the spasms and the tremor are still with me. I have had all of my vaccines all my life and never thought anything bad of them, but now I am not so sure. I am a nursing student and will be required to be get the Flu shot, I'm terrified of what might happen and would prefer to wear a mask to protect patients along with good hygiene and nutrition, but I doubt that will happen. I wont say how well or not they work, but at least they should investigate and test to see what happens when people react as I did, because there is no follow up and when doctors see you after a reaction they don't even link it as a reaction, that doesn't make sense.

Wow. To the 43 year old who had the Tdap and Hep-B. I had the Tdap and had a very similar experience but not as bad. Neck and back pain and tender points, as you described. And yes it took a long time to go away. I'm so sorry you went through that. It just reaffirms my feelings on the vaccine industry.

I decided to get the flu shot this year after we received a memo that all employees of BSHSI were strongly encouraged to get the shot. Mind you this is my 1st shot since I was 12.

I'm a nurse who had taken care of multiple people in their 30s and 40s who did not receive the vaccine and ended up on ventilators due to this virus. Think about how many millions of people get the vaccine without complications. I've seen too many other people's loved ones suffer and some not recover due to something that could have been prevented. Also, most people do feel slightly ill after the vaccine, related to the fact that your immune response is responding to a foreign body. However, it produces immunity to what could be a life changing our ending illness.

I get a flu shot every year if the opportunity presents itself. Also, I read the documentation supplied with it. Recipients have the option of choosing shots lacking trace amounts of harmful ingredients upon request. The most recent case of flu I remember getting was norovirus in 2005 (clinical trials for norovirus vaccine are underway now). Since there's no way (afaik) to determine whether I have been lucky/unexposed, have a strong immune system, or was adequately protected by the shot; I have to rely on gut feeling and suspicion like most other posters here. The documentation does state that the dose contains in inactive strain of the virus, and that immunity generally takes 2 weeks to take effect.

As others have suggested, applied medicine improves year after year given results of widely distributed clinical trials:

To dismiss it entirely is like saying you will never go to the doctor again because a doctor caused your great, great, great grandfather to die by bleeding him out. Iterative cycles of improvement are standard science, and the tragic beauty is that you will always have the option of turning a blind eye (to some degree of risk should you decide never to wear a seatbelt again, to stop pasteurizing your milk, etc.). Like other afflictions, the flu can be fatal for certain people/age groups.

Big pharma has a questionable business model with questionable ethics, but also the resources necessary to fund clinical research. Pseudoscience publishers, however, need only an internet connection (no MD, no knowledge of medicine/patients/studies). It would be nice if honey, lemon, and cannabis really did cure everything though.

Re efficacy of flu vaccines: If 100% of people get the flu each year, and out of everyone vaccinated, 66% don't get the flu, then we could say that the vaccine is 66% effective. However, only a small percentage of people do get the flu each year.
So when they say the vaccination is "66% effective" -- that is not taking into account that perhaps 63% of the inoculates would not have fallen victim to the flu anyway. when you look at it that way, the statistics are much less impressive.

jesichashope said...

Whether we believe or disbelief is based on our perspective of what is truth and what believe to be the truth. Generations ago we had diseases that wiped out families and it sparked interest in the field of science to prevent and cure these diseases. Sound great, heroic in fact; but what happened was the heroism was discovered as a gold mine. Pharmaceutical companies turned the art of medicine into a 'healthcare industry'. Money replaced true empathy, the making and patenting of drugs and vaccines were and are big business. Statistics are manipulated to reflect what the Pharmas want in order to push their wares.

There have been great advancements in medicine, but they are crowded out with pseudo advancements. When patents run out, the Pharma corporation changes a molecule or two, patents it as something 'new' - new name, same drug. Chemotherapy drugs are the most over renamed drugs out there, and those statistics are the most manipulated.

Vaccines are no different; they say you have choice - the vaccine with no toxins or the one loaded up with toxins; who in their right mind would say - give me the one with the poisons in it? So, if there is a choice, and I have not heard anyone being given that choice, but one commenter mentioned this; why is everyone getting the flu vaccine with all the toxins and not the vaccine without toxins? I would assume either the commenter was wrong or everyone in the U.S love to be poisoned.

The flu vaccine like other vaccines need to be seriously looked at before giving them to yourself or your child. I have witnessed serious side effects from several vaccines, Pertussis vaccine [part of the DPT] caused a near death fever; Polio caused a brain damage, flu vaccine caused sudden illness that led to death. In some cases, it is the fact live viruses were used, others it is the toxic reaction to the toxins added to the vaccine. Why do we not question what is in them? The CDC and the FDA are not agencies of the people for the people, but agencies for the corporations, lives are disposable, the survival of the 'healthcare industry' is foremost. And that is the real world, whether we want to believe it or not; the ostrich syndrome makes it easier for you but reality is still there whether your head is in the sand or not.

All credibility is lost with the citation of the Jennings case. Ms. Jennings was not diagnosed with dystonia by any doctor. Her PHYSICAL THERAPIST suggested she might have it, but physical therapists are not qualified to give official diagnoses, especially pertaining to neurological diseases. Neurologists who examined her were unable to determine the exact nature of her illness. In fact, Neurologists who observed her generally agreed that her symptoms were not consistent with dystonia. A couple of months later, she was magically cured of her supposed disease, leading many doctors to assert the issue was psychogenic - that is, it was all in her head. She may have fooled herself into believing there was something wrong (it's amazing what the mind can do), which seems to be consistent with her behavior at the time (symptoms come and go, get more severe when actually talking about it, etc).

Autism is not in the chromosomes! My son was diagnosed with Autism, and he has NO genetic abnormalities!

I do believe autism is caused by a build up of toxins in the body. Toxic loads are passed down from mother to child. Everything a mother does to her body before she has a child effects her child, because the cells that will form into a baby, a woman is born with. Those cells that turn into babies are formed inside a woman while she herself is being carried by her own mother. Your mother's and your mother's mother toxic load have an effect on you. There are a lot of toxins in our environment. We need to clean it up before all the people has autism or worse.

A lot of what you say is correct. However, lets make all the facts clear.

1. You may be right about the 1.5%. However, since I started getting the flu shot annually (23 years ago) I have only had the flu once.

2. Even if you get the flu, numerous studies have shown that the flu shot will lessen the severity. The one time I got the flu I was from a company meeting. I was the only person in that group who didn't have fever or body aches. The symptoms were still pretty bad but at least I didn't have to deal with the fever or aches and my symptoms were not as bad as my co-workers who did not get the flu.

3. Studies have shown that people taking the flu shot contract common colds less often than those who don't

4. Even with the toxins you mention, the flu shot is only a couple of CCs. Your body can easily absorb and detoxify such small doses once a year. Furthermore, they are nothing in comparison to the toxins that your body has to deal with on a daily basis

This article raises some very good points. Not being a scientist is both an advantage and disadvantage-- scientists too often rely on "facts" that change, and almost never are able to take all factors into consideration, making them just plain WRONG about 50% of the time. (Science history is full of mistakes that are taken as gospel by the scientific community until proven false.)

Vaccinations are probably NOT a conspiracy to reduce the population; it's apparent to me that it's the same as all the other industries-- greed and ego-driven enterprises pushed by corporate influence to create profit.

It's the MOTIVATION that should be in question-- profit-based motivation should always be suspect.
