The U.S. is in the midst of one of the worst outbreaks of influenza in years, and in spite of the fact that the CDC is estimating that the flu vaccine is only about 10% effective, there are massive advertising campaigns in place to get the entire population vaccinated for the flu.
Media reports are coming in reporting high rates of deaths due to the flu, and the majority of those dying from the flu have been vaccinated. (See: Flu Kills Eight Santa Barbara Residents in Two Weeks for one example where local media reports 7 of the 8 people who died from the flu were vaccinated for the flu.)
The flu shot is not without severe risks, risks that are routinely censored in the corporate “mainstream” media, and include paralysis from Guillain-Barré Syndrome, chronic shoulder pain from SIRVA, and death. It is, by far, the most dangerous vaccine in America.

Given the fact that health authorities themselves admit that the flu vaccine is not effective, the public should be made aware of these risks.
The bigger question that needs to be considered is: could the lucrative mass flu vaccination program actually be a cause for more severe flu outbreaks, rather than a cure?
Over 300 million doses of the flu vaccine are manufactured each season, representing a huge cash flow for the pharmaceutical industry that they would obviously be hesitant to give up simply because it is not effective, or even if it is an underlying cause of more severe flu outbreaks.
Flu Vaccine Manufacturing: End Product is Totally Unpredictable
In an article titled, Think Flu Season Is Bad? It Might Get Even Worse, published by Bloomberg on the 16th of January, 2018, author, Michelle Cortez, wrote that:
“The CDC is starting to see infections caused by the H1N1 strain of the virus in states grappling with high levels of the H3N2 strain, the predominant version this season. In addition, Jernigan says yet another type of flu, caused by the influenza B viruses, is still expected to show up later in the season.
H3N2 has compounded the damage usually wrought by the annual flu outbreak. It’s known for both its severity and ability to evade the protection provided by vaccinations that are typically more effective against the other types of flu.
Most flu vaccines are made using eggs, which are less hospitable to growing the H3N2 strain and thus less likely to develop an effective vaccine. That strain goes through more changes over time than other versions, so vaccines are often behind the curve when they reach the general public.” (Emphasis added)
Late last year Health Impact News reported on a study published by The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, documenting how influenza viruses cultured in eggs mutate, making the flu vaccines virtually worthless.
The authors of the study stated:
Seasonal influenza vaccine does not always confer protection in vaccinated individuals. Vaccine candidates are selected from clinical isolates based on their antigenic properties.
It is common to use chicken eggs for culturing clinical isolates and for large-scale production of vaccines. However, influenza virus often mutates to adapt to being grown in chicken eggs, which can influence antigenicity and hence vaccine effectiveness.
Is the U.S. Mass Flu Vaccination Program Actually Causing More Severe Influenza Outbreaks?
Over the past few years, several studies have pointed to the fact that repeated flu vaccinations year after year actually reduces the effectiveness of the vaccine, raising serious questions about yearly mass flu vaccination programs.
The most recent was a study out of Australia where researchers showed that those who had multiple flu vaccines actually produced fewer antibodies than those who did not get the flu shot regularly.
Most people probably do not realize that the measure of success for a vaccine is not whether you stay healthy or get sick, but simply if your body develops the appropriate antibodies thought to be required to fight off the disease being vaccinated against.
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny explains this very well in the following video:
This was not the first study to show that repeated flu shots every year decrease one’s resistance to influenza viruses.
Dr. Edward Belongia of the Wisconsin’s Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation reported the same thing back in 2015, and a study in 2013 showed that getting the flu shot two years in a row lowered protection.
We have frequently published an interview with Dr. Mark Geier explaining how little science there is behind the flu vaccine.
Dr. Geier is NOT anti-vaccine. He is an M.D. and has a Ph.D. in genetics. He spent 10 years working at the National Institute of Health, and was a professor at Johns 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 that 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 a more purified vaccine.
Dr. Geier 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 explains 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.
Watch the entire interview:
UK consultant and healthcare practitioner, Dr. Graham Downing, told Health Impact News that he was not convinced by the flu vaccine data being offered by the government and believed that others felt the same. He stated that:
Most healthcare workers and researchers that understand the science feel that what is being presented here is marketing not science. Independent analysis by the Cochrane collaboration has pointed that out many times and they are highly respected.
My own analysis for example of the flu nasal spray showed that the vaccine effects were negligible but were being touted as having high efficacy by government institutions.
Even the CDC which by any standard is very pro-vaccine estimated its efficacy at -23%!
In fact, with flu, vitamin D3 has been shown in a blinded placebo controlled trial to be more effective.
To support his statement, Dr. Downing directed us to a video by Dr. Mercola, who agreed that we should ditch the flu vaccine in favor of vitamin D.
There are things that you can do to prevent the flu, now wouldn’t that be better, prevention makes a lot more sense. Clearly you would like to take control of your health lifestyle program, which involves of course normalizing your insulin and doing exercise and all the things that I talk about.
But there specific that will really virtually annihilate the flu and what has been clearly shown without any question is vitamin D, and the best way to get vitamin D is through sun exposure.
Unfortunately, and isn’t it a coincidence that flu occurs in the winter, which is when you don’t have access to appropriate amounts of sunshine.
Mercola continued by providing several alternative ways of making sure that your body is receiving adequate vitamin D throughout the year.

Public in Danger from Mass Flu Vaccination Programs
Despite Dr. Geier’s testimony and the testimony of other doctors and scientists questioning the lack of science behind the flu vaccine, the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to recommend the annual flu shot to everyone over the age of six months, including pregnant women.
Factual evidence hardly supports the government’s view that the flu vaccine is safe for pregnant women, and ignores fetal deaths reported after flu vaccines:
This may be because the flu vaccine has not been tested in pregnant women.
Don’t Let Corporate Media Censorship on Flu Vaccine Dangers Make you or your Family a Victim!
Almost every single corporate media reports on this year’s flu epidemic, even if they admit that the flu vaccine is ineffective, will follow the script to tell you that you should get the flu vaccine anyway, as it is still the “best option” to fight the flu according to them and the CDC.
They will never mention the fact the people are being crippled and killed by the flu vaccine. This fact is indisputable, as the quarterly DOJ reports on compensation for vaccine injuries and deaths clearly show that the flu vaccine is the most dangerous vaccine in America.
As far as I know, Health Impact News is still the only media source publishing these quarterly DOJ reports on compensation for vaccine injuries and deaths.
These reports are required by law, as the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act gave legal immunity to pharmaceutical companies for the manufacture of vaccines. Any injuries or deaths due to vaccines now must be litigated in an national “Vaccine Court” funded by a tax on vaccines.
If it were not for this legal protection, the courts would be filled with cases of vaccine injuries and deaths.
As it is, even under current law, there is a good chance that if you received the flu vaccine, it was probably illegal. See:
