The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons “STRONGLY OPPOSES” Mandatory Vaccines

by Daisy Luther

March 6, 2019

Tensions are high regarding vaccines lately.

Due to a measles outbreak in the United States, frightened people are pushing an agenda to take an important medical decision out of the hands of parents. They’re calling for federally mandated vaccines. They’re calling for the shaming of parents who have chosen not to vaccinate their children.

The hysteria is running high, fueled by fear and memes.

Whether you opt to vaccinate or not to vaccinate, I think we can agree we all want what’s best for our children.

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons opposes federally mandated vaccines.

An important letter was presented last week to the Senate subcommittee that is discussing federal laws that force parents to vaccinate their children. The statement below is from The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, and they have come out strongly in opposition to the possibility of federally mandated vaccines.

No matter what your opinion is on vaccinating children, please read this.

Re: Statement federal vaccine mandates

Feb. 26, 2019

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) strongly opposes federal interference in medical decisions, including mandated vaccines. After being fully informed of the risks and benefits of a medical procedure, patients have the right to reject or accept that procedure. The regulation of medical practice is a state function, not a federal one. Governmental preemption of patients’ or parents’ decisions about accepting drugs or other medical interventions is a serious intrusion into individual liberty, autonomy, and parental decisions about child-rearing.

A public health threat is the rationale for the policy on mandatory vaccines. But how much of a threat is required to justify forcing people to accept government-imposed risks? Regulators may intervene to protect the public against a one-in-one million risk of a threat such as cancer from an involuntary exposure to a toxin, or-one-in 100,000 risk from a voluntary (e.g. occupational) exposure. What is the risk of death, cancer, or crippling complication from a vaccine? There are no rigorous safety studies of sufficient power to rule out a much lower risk of complications, even one in 10,000, for vaccines. Such studies would require an adequate number of subjects, a long duration (years, not days), an unvaccinated control group (“placebo” must be truly inactive such as saline, not the adjuvant or everything-but-the-intended-antigen), and consideration of all adverse health events (including neurodevelopment disorders).

Vaccines are necessarily risky, as recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court and by Congress. The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid some $4 billion in damages, and high hurdles must be surmounted to collect compensation. The damage may be so devastating that most people would prefer restored function to a multimillion-dollar damage award.

The smallpox vaccine is so dangerous that you can’t get it now, despite the weaponization of smallpox. Rabies vaccine is given only after a suspected exposure or to high-risk persons such as veterinarians. The whole-cell pertussis vaccine was withdrawn from the U.S. market, a decade later than from the Japanese market, because of reports of severe permanent brain damage. The acellular vaccine that replaced it is evidently safer, though somewhat less effective.

The risk: benefit ratio varies with the frequency and severity of disease, vaccine safety, and individual patient factors. These must be evaluated by patient and physician, not imposed by a government agency.

Measles is the much-publicized threat used to push for mandates, and is probably the worst threat among the vaccine-preventable illnesses because it is so highly contagious. There are occasional outbreaks, generally starting with an infected individual coming from somewhere outside the U.S. The majority, but by no means all the people who catch the measles have not been vaccinated. Almost all make a full recovery, with robust, life-long immunity. The last measles death in the U.S. occurred in 2015, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC). Are potential measles complications including death in persons who cannot be vaccinated due to immune deficiency a  justification for revoking the rights of all Americans and establishing a precedent for still greater restrictions on our right to give—or withhold—consent to medical interventions? Clearly not.

Many serious complications have followed MMR vaccination, and are listed in the manufacturers’ package insert, though a causal relationship may not have been proved. According to a 2012 report by the Cochrane Collaboration, “The design and reporting of safety outcomes in MMR vaccine studies, both pre- and post-marketing, are largely inadequate” (cited by the National Vaccine Information Center).

Mandate advocates often assert a need for a 95% immunization rate to achieve herd immunity. However, Mary Holland and Chase Zachary of NYU School of Law argue, in the Oregon Law Review, that because complete herd immunity and measles eradication are unachievable, the better goal is for herd effect and disease control. The best outcome would result, they argue, from informed consent, more open communication, and market-based approaches.

Even disregarding adverse vaccine effects, the results of near-universal vaccination have not been completely positive. Measles, when it does occur, is four to five times worse than in pre-vaccination times, according to Lancet Infectious Diseases, because of the changed age distribution: more adults, whose vaccine-based immunity waned, and more infants, who no longer receive passive immunity from their naturally immune mother to protect them during their most vulnerable period.

Measles is a vexing problem, and more complete, forced vaccination will likely not solve it. Better public health measures—earlier detection, contact tracing, and isolation; a more effective, safer vaccine; or an effective treatment are all needed. Meanwhile, those who choose not to vaccinate now might do so in an outbreak, or they can be isolated. Immunosuppressed patients might choose isolation in any event because vaccinated people can also possibly transmit measles even if not sick themselves.

Issues that Congress must consider:

  • Manufacturers are virtually immune from product liability, so the incentive to develop safer products is much diminished. Manufacturers may even refuse to make available a product believed to be safer, such as monovalent measles vaccine in preference to MMR (measles-mumps-rubella). Consumer refusal is the only incentive to do better.
  • There are enormous conflicts of interest involving lucrative relationships with vaccine purveyors.
  • Research into possible vaccine adverse effects is being quashed, as is dissent by professionals.
  • There are many theoretical mechanisms for adverse effects from vaccines, especially in children with developing brains and immune systems. Note the devastating effects of Zika or rubella virus on developing humans, even though adults may have mild or asymptomatic infections. Many vaccines contain live viruses intended to cause a mild infection. Children’s brains are developing rapidly—any interference with the complex developmental symphony could be ruinous.
  • Vaccines are neither 100% safe nor 100% effective. Nor are they the only available means to control the spread of disease.

AAPS believes that liberty rights are unalienable. Patients and parents have the right to refuse vaccination, although potentially contagious persons can be restricted in their movements (e.g. as with Ebola), as needed to protect others against a clear and present danger. Unvaccinated persons with no exposure to a disease and no evidence of a disease are not a clear or present danger.

AAPS represents thousands of physicians in all specialties nationwide. It was founded in 1943 to protect private medicine and the patient-physician relationship.

Respectfully yours,

Jane M. Orient, M.D., Executive Director

Can we have a respectful conversation about this?

Like I said above, regardless of our opinions on vaccines, we all want to do what is best for our children. Can we share some thoughts in the comments section about the pros or cons of mandatory vaccinations?

Be civil so we can keep the conversation going. Name-calling, rude comments, and blanket generalizations of entire swaths of people will be deleted, no matter which side of the debate you’re on. So let’s have a really good, productive conversation, okay?

NY State Senator Passes Away At 47, Complained Of ‘Flu Shot Symptoms’

peralta-flu-shot

José R. Peralta, a former New York State Senator, has passed away at age 47. Peralta is the first Dominican-American to elected to New York’s State Senate.

The circumstances surrounding Peralta’s death are odd, to say the least.

Senator Peralta Complains Of Flu Shot Symptoms

jose peralta flu shot

Peralta complained of a mysterious illness for two weeks prior to his passing. According to an article in the New York Times, Peralta believed the cause of his symptoms to be related to a flu shot he’d recently received.

“It was like pulling teeth to get him to talk about not feeling well,” Mr. Chris Sosa, Peralta’s Director of Communications, said. “He just thought he was having symptoms related to getting the flu shot.”

Peralta began experiencing feeling so disorientation on Wednesday evening. He was immediately taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center in Queens. He passed away at the hospital at 9:23 p.m. An autopsy is being performed.

Medical Examiner Says ‘Septic Shock’ Likely Cause

New York City’s Medical Examiner’s office allegedly told Evelyn Peralta, his wife, that Peralta died of “septic shock,” according to the New York Post.

All they said is that he was septic,’ she said on Friday. ‘And that led to organ failure.’

Without the results of the autopsy, this diagnosis remains informal.

“As a member of the Assembly for eight years and then as senator, he fought tirelessly to make a difference for others, and he will always be remembered for his service to Queens and to all New Yorkers,” Mr. Cuomo said in a press statement.

“Jose Peralta was a proud son of Queens and the Dominican Republic. He worked his way up from the grassroots, with heart and tenacity,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Twitter.

Peralta recently lost his State Senate seat to Jessica Ramos. Peralta’s loss is said to have been a result of his aligning with Republicans via the Independent Democratic Conference. He served in the seat since 2010.

Flu Shots Are Killing Senior Citizens in Record Numbers, Study Warns

Scientists found vaccine-related deaths in elderly citizens are rising at an alarming rate

By: Jay Greenberg  |@NeonNettle on 29th July 2018 @ 8.00pm

Senior citizens are being killed by flu vaccines at an alarming rate

Researchers have found that senior citizens are being killed by flu vaccines in record numbers, and the death rate is rising at an alarming rate. A study conducted by JAMA discovered that flu shots may be killing a significant number of senior citizens. According to data collected by the study, 60 percent of people over 65-years-old are at risk. A former investigative journalist for CBS, Sharyl Attkisson, states that the study highlights the worrying rise in mortality rates among elderly citizens who are vaccinated for protection against influenza.

According to Attkisson, not only do the findings prove that the flu shots do nothing to improve death rates, but they may actually be contributing to the increase in ill health and fatality.

Senior citizens are dying at an alarming rate due to flu shots

Inquisitr reports: The study “got little attention,” she says, “because the science came down on the wrong side.” Whereas the researchers had set out to prove that the push for massive flu vaccination would save the world, the researchers were “astonished” to find that the data did not support their presupposition at all. The data actually shows that deaths increased, not decreased, among seniors following vaccination. Johns Hopkins scientist, Peter Doshi, Ph.D., issued a report in the prestigious British Medical Journal, according to NewsLI, asserting that the CDC policy of routinely recommending the flu vaccine is being based on “low-quality studies that do not substantiate claims.”

He says there is no evidence that the vaccine reduces deaths among senior citizens. Interestingly, Doshi cites an Australian study which found significant risks for children as well, stating that “one in every 110 children under the age of five had convulsions following vaccinations in 2009 for H1N1 influenza.” During the drug trials for the Fluzone flu vaccine, 23 seniors out of 3,833 died after receiving the shot, according to the drug’s package insert, reported by Health Impact News.Another 226 experienced “serious adverse effects.”TRENDING: Flu Shots Are Killing Senior Citizens in Record Numbers Study Warns The manufacturer denies any connection between the deaths and the flu vaccine.Seniors Told Get Flu Vaccine

There appears to be growing public skepticism that the flu vaccine is as beneficial as the experts say, according to an earlier Inquisitr report. The level of doubt is strongly correlated to the incidence of accounts of research fraud in the vaccine industry, an industry which makes billions of dollars of profit every year.
senior-citizens-dying-flu-vaccines-study-328718

Deaths among the elderly are rising due to a recent study

Often when an article about the dangers of a vaccine comes out, there are people who write in to tell about a family member who was harmed by the vaccine and the flu vaccine for senior citizens in no exception. A number of people have written to report that their grandmother, or uncle, or brother died shortly after getting a flu shot, sometimes after receiving their first ever such shot. Their stories are frequently minimized, yet the government pays out more compensation from the flu vaccine than any other vaccine. Despite this, it is increasingly expected that every senior citizen line up for their annual flu shot.

A nursing home near Atlanta, Georgia, now reports a devastating outcome to such a policy, according to Health Impact News. All of the residents of the Hope Assisted Living & Memory Care were given a flu vaccine on Friday, November 7. Every one of the senior citizens developed an immediate fever. Within the week following, five of them died.The source reports that the facility’s typical pattern is one or two losses every six months, frequently due to Alzheimer’s. “The facility is not saying they are related to the flu shot but we all know they are, and they know they are.”

Questions must be asked, then, such as: do the benefits of getting a flu vaccine outweigh the risks, especially among vulnerable senior citizens? Or would they be better off choosing to reject the shot? Who benefits if evidence showing the harm of the vaccine is buried? And what would be the motive for fabricating evidence of harm if none exists? If the facts are as solid as some insist, then why do they seem to be threatened by the data being challenged? Shouldn’t truth be able to stand up under scrutiny? (Click to Source)

MASSIVE FLU OUTBREAK? HERE’S THE REAL STORY THE MEDIA WON’T TOUCH.

The lies, the hoax, the scandal

sneeze-woman235

In case you haven’t been following the uproar over the flu outbreak, you’ve missed the fact that…

Health authorities admit this year’s flu vaccine is only 10% effective.

But of course, they urge you to take the vaccine anyway.

Why is this year’s vaccine ineffective? Because it’s made using chicken eggs, and researchers have discovered that the flu virus—which is placed in the vaccine—mutates in chicken eggs.

Therefore, by the time a person takes the flu shot, he’s not being protected against this year’s seasonal flu virus. He’s being protected against a mutated virus that isn’t causing the flu this year.

This is the conventional explanation. If you think it’s the whole story, I have condos for sale on the moon.

You see, vaccines have been made using chicken eggs—not just this year—but for the past 70 years.

Oops.

That would mean the flu vaccine has been ineffective for decades.

Healthline.com: “The majority of flu vaccines are grown in chicken eggs, a method of vaccine development that’s been used for 70 years.”

But wait. There’s more. Much more. I’ll break it down into several scandals.

SCANDAL ONE: (I covered this the other day): Dr. Peter Doshi, writing in the online BMJ (British Medical Journal), reveals a monstrosity.

As Doshi states, every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory samples are taken from flu patients in the US and tested in labs. Here is the kicker: only a small percentage of these samples show the presence of a flu virus.

This means: most of the people in America who are diagnosed by doctors with the flu have no flu virus in their bodies.

So they don’t have the flu.

Therefore, even if you assume the flu vaccine is useful and safe, it couldn’t possibly prevent all those “flu cases” that aren’t flu cases.

The vaccine couldn’t possibly work.

The vaccine isn’t designed to prevent fake flu, unless pigs can fly.

Here’s the exact quote from Peter Doshi’s BMJ review, “Influenza: marketing vaccines by marketing disease” (BMJ 2013; 346:f3037):

“…even the ideal influenza vaccine, matched perfectly to circulating strains of wild influenza and capable of stopping all influenza viruses, can only deal with a small part of the ‘flu’ problem because most ‘flu’ appears to have nothing to do with influenza. Every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory specimens are tested across the US. Of those tested, on average 16% are found to be influenza positive.”

“…It’s no wonder so many people feel that ‘flu shots’ don’t work: for most flus, they can’t.”

Because most diagnosed cases of the flu aren’t the flu.

So even if you’re a true believer in mainstream vaccine theory, you’re on the short end of the stick here. They’re conning your socks off.

The basic flu symptoms—cough, fever, chills, sore throat, muscle aches, weakness—can be caused by a variety of factors that have nothing to do with a flu virus.

SCANDAL TWO: In December of 2005, the British Medical Journal (online) published another shocking Peter Doshi report, which created tremors through the halls of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), where “the experts” used to tell the press that 36,000 people in the US die every year from the flu.

Here is a quote from Doshi’s report, “Are US flu death figures more PR than science?”(BMJ 2005; 331:1412):

“[According to CDC statistics], ‘influenza and pneumonia’ took 62,034 lives in 2001—61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu virus positively identified.”

Boom.

You see, the CDC has created one overall category that combines both flu and pneumonia deaths. Why do they do this? Because they disingenuously assume that the pneumonia deaths are complications stemming from the flu.

This is an absurd assumption. Pneumonia has a number of causes.

But even worse, in all the flu and pneumonia deaths, only 18 revealed the presence of an influenza virus.

Therefore, the CDC could not say, with assurance, that more than 18 people died of influenza in 2001. Not 36,000 deaths. 18 deaths.

Doshi continued his assessment of published CDC flu-death statistics: “Between 1979 and 2001, [CDC] data show an average of 1348 [flu] deaths per year (range 257 to 3006).” These figures refer to flu separated out from pneumonia.

This death toll is obviously far lower than the old parroted 36,000 figure.

However, when you add the sensible condition that lab tests have to actually find the flu virus in patients, the numbers of flu deaths plummet even further.

In other words, it’s all promotion and hype.

“Well, uh, we used to say that 36,000 people die from the flu every year in the US. But actually, all we can prove is about 20 deaths. However, we can’t admit that, because if we did, we’d be exposing our gigantic psyop. The whole campaign to scare people into getting a flu shot would have about the same effect as warning people to carry iron umbrellas, in case toasters fall out of upper-story windows…and, by the way, we’d be put in prison for fraud.”

SCANDAL THREE: The so-called Swine Flu pandemic of 2009. This one is a real eye-opener. The CDC was caught with its pants down.

Swine Flu was hyped to the sky by the CDC. The Agency was calling for all Americans to take the Swine Flu vaccine. Remember?

The problem was, the CDC was concealing a very dirty secret.

At the time, star CBS investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, was working on the Swine Flu story. She discovered that the CDC had secretly stopped counting cases of the illness—while, of course, continuing to warn Americans about its unchecked spread.

Understand that the CDC’s main job is counting cases and reporting the numbers.

What was the Agency up to?

Here is an excerpt from my 2014 interview with Sharyl Attkisson:

Rappoport: In 2009, you spearheaded coverage of the so-called Swine Flu pandemic. You discovered that, in the summer of 2009, the Centers for Disease Control, ignoring their federal mandate, [secretly] stopped counting Swine Flu cases in America. Yet they continued to stir up fear about the “pandemic,” without having any real measure of its impact. Wasn’t that another investigation of yours that was shut down? Wasn’t there more to find out?

Attkisson: The implications of the story were even worse than that. We discovered through our FOI efforts that before the CDC mysteriously stopped counting Swine Flu cases, they had learned that almost none of the cases they had counted as Swine Flu was, in fact, Swine Flu or any sort of flu at all! The interest in the story from one [CBS] executive was very enthusiastic. He said it was “the most original story” he’d seen on the whole Swine Flu epidemic. But others pushed to stop it [after it was published on the CBS News website] and, in the end, no [CBS television news] broadcast wanted to touch it. We aired numerous stories pumping up the idea of an epidemic, but not the one that would shed original, new light on all the hype. It was fair, accurate, legally approved and a heck of a story. With the CDC keeping the true Swine Flu stats secret, it meant that many in the public took and gave their children an experimental vaccine that may not have been necessary.

—end of interview excerpt—

I’ll add a few details. It was routine for doctors all over America to send blood samples from patients they’d diagnosed with Swine Flu, or the “most likely” Swine Flu patients, to labs for testing. And overwhelmingly, those samples were coming back with the result: not Swine Flu, not any kind of flu.

That was the big secret. That’s what the CDC was hiding. That’s why they stopped reporting Swine Flu case numbers. That’s what Attkisson had discovered. That’s why she was shut down.

But it gets even worse.

Because about three weeks after Attkisson’s findings were published on the CBS News website, the CDC, obviously in a panic, decided to double down. If one lie is exposed, tell an even bigger one. A much bigger one.

Here, from a November 12, 2009, WebMD article is the CDC’s response: “Shockingly, 14 million to 34 million U.S. residents — the CDC’s best guess is 22 million — came down with H1N1 swine flu by Oct. 17 [2009].” (“22 million cases of Swine Flu in US,” by Daniel J. DeNoon).

Are your eyeballs popping? They should be.

In the summer of 2009, the CDC secretly stops counting Swine Flu cases in America, because the overwhelming percentage of lab tests from likely Swine Flu patients shows no sign of Swine Flu or any other kind of flu.

There is no Swine Flu epidemic.

Then, the CDC estimates there are 22 MILLION cases of Swine Flu in the US.

So now…when health officials begin waving red flags and raising alarms about a current viral flu outbreak, it would be more than reasonable to demand they answer questions about their past lies and deceptions.

Unless you just want to take them at their word.

If so, good luck. (Click to Source)

Flu widespread in 36 states, CDC reports

636501459882720331-122917kns-flushot-0917-4

Outbreaks of influenza are getting an early start this year in part because of cold weather gripping much of the USA and low efficacy associated with this year’s flu vaccine.

It’s still too early to say whether this winter will be a bad season for the flu, but epidemiologists in 36 states already have reported widespread influenza activity to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in data released Friday. Twenty-one of those states show a high number of cases.

“It’s just one of those years where the CDC is seeing that this strain of flu is only somewhat covered by the vaccine that was given this year,” said Jennifer Radtke, manager for infection prevention at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville. “They’re seeing that it’s anywhere from 10% to 33% effective, so any time there’s a mismatch between the vaccine and the circulating strain of the flu, you’re going to see more cases.”

Vaccine effectiveness varies from year to year though recent studies show that a flu shot typically reduces the risk of illness by 40% to 60% among the overall population when the circulating virus is matched closely to the vaccine virus, according to the CDC.

Because only a certain percentage of people with flu symptoms go to hospitals and get tested, it can be challenging to track the actual number of people affected, Radtke said. False negative results for flu tests are also common, so it’s likely the number of people with the flu is much higher.

From the start of the flu season, which begins in October and lasts until May, Arizona has reported a nearly ninefold increase in the number of cases compared with the same period last year, according to the state Department of Health Services.

“It’s not uncommon to see (flu) this time of year,” said Radtke in Knoxville. “But we’ve had cold Decembers.

Flu symptoms include fever, body aches, chills, fatigue, cough and a sore throat. The illness typically passes within a few days but can be especially dangerous to the very young, the very old, pregnant women and those with respiratory problems.

Influenza can develop into pneumonia, an infection that causes the lungs’ air sacs to become inflamed and fill with fluid.

Deaths already have occurred in some states this flu season. Among them:

• In Arizona, the state is reporting one death of a child in its latest tally; however, an otherwise healthy 20-year-old mother of two in Phoenix died Nov. 28, one day after being diagnosed, CBS News reported.

• In California, at least 10 people younger than 65 have died, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. An 11th death occurred Thursday. The state does not track flu-related deaths among those 65 and older.

• In Delaware, a 47-year-old man with underlying health problems and an 83-year-old woman have died, state health officials said.

• In North Carolina, 12 people, including a child, have died.

• In South Carolina, seven have died. All were age 65 or older.

Getting a flu shot now is still one way to combat the virus even though it can’t promise total immunity, health officials say.

More insurers fully cover the cost, and pharmacists in all states now can administer the vaccinations, according to the American Pharmacists Association trade group.

“People are able to come in to the pharmacy — especially a 24-hour pharmacy like this one where you can come in at literally any time — and be in and out usually within 15 minutes,” said Jason Lind, a Walgreens pharmacist in St. Cloud, Minn.

Also to keep the germs at bay, wash or sanitize your hands frequently, especially if you’re touching shared surfaces such as shopping carts in public places; clean faucet and toilet handles frequently at home to reduce transmission of the virus within your family; cover your mouth when coughing; stay home when you’re sick; stay away from sick people; and avoid touching your face.

It also pays to stay well rested and hydrated so if you do come in contact with a flu virus, your body is prepared to fight it off.

If you’re already feeling ill, get to a doctor as quickly as possible.

Antiviral prescription drugs such as Tamiflu can lessen the severity of influenza for people who have had flu symptoms for two days or fewer and prevent complications such as pneumonia. But they also can have side effects, so a flu shot while you’re well should be your first choice.

“It can take up to two weeks to build full immunity to the flu after you are vaccinated,” said Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services. “So I encourage everyone who has not yet had a flu shot to get one today before the holidays.” (Click to Source)

The Disgusting Stuff in Flu Shots

depositphotos_18420129_m-2015-777x437

By Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABIHM

It’s that time again: the hype has begun to push flu shots into the arms of everyone, from six-month-old infants to 96-year-old grandparents. Flu vaccines have been around since the 1930s when it was discovered that the influenza viruses grew well in eggs and could be harvested for a vaccine. Flu shots contain stray, potentially cancer-causing stray viruses and the multi-dose vials remain loaded with mercury. For nearly 90 years, this disgusting slurry has annually been injected into humans. Truth is, the long-term consequences of this action are completely unknown.

For the 2017-18 flu season, there will be a variety of 10 different flu shots made by five different manufacturers:

  • Seqirus: Afluria, Fluad, FluVirin, FlucelVax
  • Protein Sciences: FluBlok
  • MedImmune: FluMist, (again this year, the intranasal vaccine is not approved for use.)
  • GlascoSmithKlein (GSK):  FluLaval, Fluarix (both are quadrivalent)
  • Sanofi Pasteur (SP): Fluzone, Fluzone Intradermal, Fluzone High-Dose for seniors

Each of vaccine has its own unique spin: Different ingredients, individualized manufacturing processes, and even age-specific utilization guidelines. It’s gotten so complicated that websites have been created to sort by age of patient, allergens, how the shots are delivered and which vial has three or four strains.

A flu shot ain’t just a flu shot anymore.

Selecting the Vaccine Viral Strains

Deciding which strains to be included in the annual flu shot is a global affair. Active surveillance and infection trends are gathered by 122 national influenza centers in 94 countries. The data are analyzed by the four World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centers located in Atlanta, London, Melbourne, and Tokyo. Of the hundreds of strains and substrains of influenza viruses in circulation, the WHO chooses strains that were the most prevalent in the Southern Hemisphere’s flu season last year.  The flu shot has historically consisted of three viral strains: two influenza A viral strains and one strain of influenza B. Beginning last year, 11 of the currently approved vaccines arequadrivalent, with another strain of influenza B added to the mixture.

The production of influenza vaccine generally begins in March for the Northern Hemisphere. Scientists use an educated guess – a kin to a crystal ball – to predict which viruses will be most prevalent 8 months later, when the vials of vaccine are ready for use and shipped to providers. Not only is the selection of viruses tricky, preparing the virus for use gets even more complicated.

Processing the virus for use

After the annual strains, called “the seed viruses,” are selected, the three/four viruses are tested for their ability grow in eggs. If one of the seed viruses propagates poorly, it is mixed with a stock influenza that does grow well in eggs. Each influenza A virus consists of eight distinct genes. Combining a seed virus with a stock virus can create up to 256 (28) new viruses. Researchers are then tasked with identifying which of these 256 recombinants has an (H) antigen on its surface that matchs the seed virus AND has the internal genes of the egg-growing stock virus. From there, the selected hybrids are sent to the manufacturers and the process begins.

Every year the CDC says that if the vaccine virus isn’t a “close match” to the viruses in circulation, the flu shot will be less effective, leading to increased illness, increased hospitalizations, and even an increased number of deaths. But if the vaccine viruses are a man-made mixture, how can they be a “close match”? For those who preach, “get your flu shot!”, how close is close enough?

During the 2014-15 season, the flu shot effectiveness was only 19%; during the 2015-16 season, it was only slightly better at 47%, truly about the same as a toss of a coin. But how often does the influenza vaccine really have a chance at keeping you from contracting an influenza infection?

Flu-like Symptoms are not “the flu”

Most people think they have the flu if they become ill with flu-like symptoms: a headache, body aches, chills, cough, and fever. But there are more than 200 viruses and other pathogens that can cause “influenza-like illnesses,” defined as fever (temperature of 100°F [37.8°C] or greater) and a cough and/or a sore throat caused by a pathogen other than influenza virus. Such causes can include enterovirus, rhinovirus, coronavirus, respiratory syncytial virus and a long list of streptococcal bacterial strains. When an influenza vaccine is injected, the antibodies are specific for influenza viruses. The vaccine will have no effect – yes, nearly zero! – against other pathogens.

Influenza viruses are the only viruses that cause the flu. Influenza-like illness is not influenza illness. This is why you can get the flu shot and still get what appears to be “The Flu.”

So, how often are flu-like symptoms actually caused by influenza viruses?

Good question.

Knowing that each week thousands of nasal and throat swabs from ill persons are sent to CDC Centers to be tested to determine the type of pathogen causing the patient’s symptoms, I examined the CDC’s Weekly Flu Activity and Surveillance Reports. The government loves to track of numbers and data, and these reports are a prime example of your tax dollars at work. Going through each report was a tedious task, but the results are important – and very telling – identifying WHY the influenza vaccine is completely unnecessary.

For example, in the 2015-16 flu season, 639,456 samples were tested. Only 64,921, or 10.15%, of the samples were positive for influenza virus. Over a 19 year period of time, millions of samples have been tested and on average, influenza symptoms have been caused by influenza viruses only 15.34% of the time.

Meaning, if you really believe the flu shot keeps you from getting the flu, it would be protective only 15% of the time. Said another way, if you get an influenza-like illness, you have an 85% chance that the bug making you sick is not an influenza virus.  

Here’s a link to a pdf file  I created using the CDC’s own data. If you’re a healthcare worker, print this chart. Take it to your boss. Serious side effects can occur from the flu shot, including Guillain-Barre syndrome and brachial neuritis with very little benefit to you, or to the hospitalized patients you serve.

Post Production of Flu Shots

After the hybrid virus has been chosen from the mix, the virus is inserted into the membranes of fertilized eggs. Eleven days later, the slurry is extracted and centrifuged to remove as much blood and tissue as possible. The details of this process were described previously in my article, “The Disgusting Chicken Stuff in Vaccines” found here.

Prior to filling the vials with the vaccine solution, the following list of ingredients are added. Different flu shots contain different types and amounts of particulate matter. Even the amount of HA viral antigen can vary, from only 15 mcg in Fluad to 135 mcg in FluBlok. Unless you read specific package insert for the specific injection you (or your children) are about to receive, you won’t know what’s coming through that needle:

  • Chicken proteins – disgusting chicken stuff in vaccines
  • Chicken DNA
  • Avian (stealth) viruses – retroviruses from the SPF-eggs
  • Antibiotics
  • Chemicals and buffers
    • Beta-propiolactone – known to be mutagenic and possibly carcinogenic too.
    • Formaldehyde – a known carcinogen
  • Triton X-100 – a detergent
  • Hydrocortisone – in the culture medium
  • MSG – in FluMist – this chemical goes up your nose!
  • Polysorbate 80 – can cause infertility; can also cross the blood-brain barrier
  • Sucrose – makes the vaccine more viscous
  • Synthetic Vitamin E – highly inflammatory adjuvant
  • Gelatin – known to cause anaphylaxis
  • Thimerosal – mercury – 25 mcg per dose when given from a multi-dose vial

Each of the ingredients listed above have the potential for causing serious side effects that will be discussed in detail in future releases of this series.

Manufacturers moving away from eggs

As previously discussed, manufacturing flu shots from eggs is time-consuming and only allows one “crop” per year. First described in the mid-1990s and still in early stages, all major players in the vaccine industry are moving toward the use of cell cultures to replace egg-based vaccines, particularly flu shots. With cell lines, production can be rapidly scaled up in times when the government thinks there is an emergency and needs more flu shots.  Below are the cell lines currently used for flu shots.

Insect cells

sIn 2013, the FDA approved the first influenza vaccine – FluBlok – produced in ovaries taken from fall army worms.  The manufacturer extracts the HA gene from this year’s seed virus and combines it with another virus, called a bacteriophage. This second virus only infects insects. Then the recombinant virus is grown in billions of cells derived from the fall armyworm. The infected worm ovaries churn out large quantities of the desired HA protein, and within three weeks, the manufacturer extracts and “purifies” the virus, readying it for insertion into the season’s vaccine.

Two immediate problems come to mind: 

  1. How exact is this match when the human influenza virus is combined with an insect-infecting virus?
  2. How much insect DNA is incorporated into the final solution? The amount of egg protein and bovine albumin is listed on package inserts, even if it is only a fraction of a nanogram. How much insect DNA is coming through that needle?

Dog kidney cells

Madin Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells were first isolated from a healthy female cocker spaniel in 1958. The cells were immortalized, meaning they have been dividing in perpetuity since that time. A continually dividing cell, by definition, has the ability to form tumors or undergo an oncogenic transformation. The FDA is well aware of this and has held several summits regarding the use of neoplastic cell for the production of vaccines.  For example, as far back as 1998, the Center for Biologic Education and Research (CBER) and the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Committee (VRBPAC), both divisions within the FDA, discussed the use of neoplastic and tumor-causing cells for vaccine manufacture. They concluded an arbitrary amount of tumor-causing DNA – up to 10ng – would be allowed in vaccines.

The first human influenza vaccine using MDCK cells was licensed in the Netherlands in 2001 (Influvac). This vaccine is no longer in production. Currently, FluCelVax, manufactured by Seqirus in partnership with Novartis, is the only FDA approved flu shot available in the US made from dog cells. 

I hope that the information above will be enough to convince you, your family and your friends to never get another flu shot. I hope you will use these facts to confront a system forcing you to be injected with this disgusting solution. We have installed a print icon at the bottom of each article. Share with friends both through social media and by handing out the article in person.

In the mean time, wash your hands, avoid refined foods particularly white sugar, take at least 3000 mg of Vitamin C ascorbate daily and have your Vitamin D level checked (the level should be 80-100ng/ml to be protective.) By following these simple steps, you’ll be well this winter without a flu shot.  (Click to Source)

Disease outbreaks are often staged to generate funding for Big Pharma

pills-money-pharma

(Natural News) When you have a product to sell, you need to strike the right balance between supply and demand. The basic laws of economics state that when you have a supply of products that you’d like to move, one way to sell them is to create a demand for them. If you’re selling scarves, for example, you might try to get a celebrity to wear one of your creations so the masses will covet it, and the only thing that suffers in this scenario is people’s wallets. But what if the products you’re peddling are vaccines and drugs?

One great way to convince people they need shots and medications is by scaring them. Most of us take our health very seriously and would do anything in our power to avoid suffering a disease unnecessarily, so when we hear about those scary disease outbreaks on the news, our first question is how we can avoid becoming victims ourselves. In many cases, this entails taking some medication or getting a vaccine. Where none exist, governments and other agencies are compelled to fork out more funding so they can be created.

With disease outbreaks being such a win-win scenario for Big Pharma, it’s not a stretch to imagine that they are staging some of them while exaggerating their prevalence and danger for the purposes of boosting business. The mainstream media, as we already know, is all too willing to serve as their mouthpiece, whether they’re showing frightening images of mass burials in remote African villages to scare us into getting shots or “helpfully” providing us with lists of local centers where we can line up with other nervous individuals to get injected with more chemicals that will supposedly keep us healthy.

Flu, measles, and Ebola outbreaks used to scare people

Take the flu for example. The CDC has a habit of overstating the dangers of the flu virus, exaggerating death counts so that people will get shots while completely ignoring the fact that many flu shots have a poor record when it comes to efficacy and are also dangerous. It has been proven that getting repeated flu shots year after year actually reduces your ability to fight the virus in the future, which will just give them even higher numbers of flu cases to use to scare others into getting shots and help secure more funding for Big Pharma to research new vaccines in a never-ending cycle where pharmaceutical companies win and people everywhere lose.

Consider also the Disneyland measles outbreak, which spurred calls for the public to get vaccinated against the disease, even though it often affects people who have been vaccinated and can even be caused by the vaccine itself. It also carries the risk of autism, but don’t worry, Big Pharma will then be able to sell you medications to deal with those symptoms, too!

As discussed by Mike Adams in his thought-provoking video lecture, The Science Agenda to Exterminate Blacks, many people in the vaccine industry believe that the strains of Ebola behind the recent outbreak in Africa were allowed to escape there so their epidemiological impact could be studied while creating a panic to generate billions of dollars in new pharma funding (which President Obama quickly approved).

The next time a disease outbreak takes over the mainstream media, take a moment to ask yourself who is going to profit from this, then seek out natural ways to protect yourself. (Click to Source)

Every childhood vaccine may go into a single jab

97801930_gettyimages-496382742

A technology that could eventually see every childhood vaccine delivered in a single injection has been developed by US researchers.

Their one-shot solution stores the vaccine in microscopic capsules that release the initial dose and then boosters at specific times.

The approach has been shown to work in mouse studies, described in the journal Science.

The researchers say the technology could help patients around the world.

Childhood immunisations come with tears and screams. And there are a lot of them.

  • Diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, Hib and hepatitis B at eight, 12 and 16 weeks.
  • Pneumococcal jab at eight weeks, 16 weeks and one year
  • Men B vaccine at eight weeks, 16 weeks and one year
  • Hib/Men C vaccine at one year
  • Measles, mumps and rubella at one year and three years and four months

Source: NHS Choices

A team at Massachusetts Institute of Technology has designed a new type of micro-particle that could combine everything into a single jab.

The particles look like miniature coffee cups that are filled with vaccine and then sealed with a lid.

Crucially, the design of the cups can be altered so they break down and spill their contents at just the right time.

One set of tests showed the contents could be released at exactly nine, 20 and 41 days after they were injected into mice.

Other particles that last for hundreds of days have also been developed, the researchers say.

The approach has not yet been tested on patients.

‘Significant impact’

Prof Robert Langer, from MIT, said: “We are very excited about this work.

“For the first time, we can create a library of tiny, encased vaccine particles, each programmed to release at a precise, predictable time, so that people could potentially receive a single injection that, in effect, would have multiple boosters already built into it.

“This could have a significant impact on patients everywhere, especially in the developing world.”

The work differs from previous attempts, which slowly released medicines over a long period of time.

The idea is the short, sharp bursts of vaccine more closely mimic routine immunisation programmes.

Fellow researcher Dr Kevin McHugh said: “In the developing world, that might be the difference between not getting vaccinated and receiving all of your vaccines in one shot.”

BOMBSHELL: United Nations admits latest outbreak of polio in Syria was caused by polio vaccines

close-up-syringe-vaccine-flu-shot

(Natural News) In war-torn Syria, there’s little doubt that the conflict has taken a toll on health. Now, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) reports that their attempt at using vaccines to “protect” children against polio has backfire — infecting more children with the devastating disease rather than saving them.

Vaccines make children sick, you don’t say?

As World Health Organization representative Elizabeth Hoff reports,  “As of 18 August 2017, 33 children under the age of five have been paralyzed. The detection of the circulating vaccine derived polio virus type 2 (cVDPV2) cases demonstrates that disease surveillance systems are functional in Syria. Our priority now is to achieve the highest possible polio immunization coverage to stop the circulation of virus.”

Thirty-three children paralyzed by the vaccine that was supposed to protect them — and the UN’s response is to just keep doling out more vaccines? Sadly, that’s par for the course. Obviously, bad medicine is never the problem — there’s just not enough bad medicine, that’s all. (Click to Site)

New vaccine study confirms that toxic vaccine ingredients harm BLACK babies twice as much as white babies

Vaccines are not safe for anyone!

african-american-infant-mother-doctor-vaccine-e1461144622355

(Natural News) Do vaccines disproportionately harm minority children? Recent research has shown that may just be the case. A team of researchers led by Dr. Anthony Mawson, a noted epidemiologist, has shown that when it comes to the risk of developing a neurodevelopmental disorder (NDD) such as autism or ADHD post-vaccination, minorities may be at an increased risk — especially boys.

In their conclusion, the team stated, “In a final adjusted model designed to test for this possibility, controlling for the interaction of preterm birth and vaccination, the following factors remained significantly associated with NDD: vaccination (OR 2.5, 95% CI: 1.1, 5.6), nonwhite race (OR 2.4, 95% CI: 1.1, 5.4), and male gender (OR 2.3, 95% CI: 1.2, 4.4).”

In addition to the shocking finding that vaccines harm more minority children, the team also discovered that on average, vaccinated children were more likely to have an NDD or other type of learning disability. As the World Mercury Project reports, this was especially notable in preterm births. While children born early do not have an increased risk of NDD alone, when preterm birth is combined with vaccination, the risk of NDD multiples by 6.6-fold. Vaccinated children in general exhibited a 4.2-fold increase in risk of having autism and ADHD, and were 5.2 times more likely to have a learning disability. The team also found that vaccinated children were 30 times more likely to suffer with allergic rhinitis and 2.9 times more likely suffer from eczema.

More concerning, however, was the finding that in many cases, vaccines did not have a notable effect on preventing disease. Only the risks of chicken pox and and pertussis were reduced by vaccination; very little differences were observed in rates of other “vaccine-preventable” diseases such as measles, mumps, rubella, meningitis, rotavirus and influenza. To put it simply, the findings illustrate that many children may be getting little benefit from routine vaccines while also being put at an unnecessary risk for a neurological condition or other health issues like allergies.

You may recall that CDC whistleblower and lead scientist Dr. William Thompson came forward a while back and stated that the federal agency had falsified data for a study of the MMR vaccine’s safety — because African American boys were disproportionately harmed by the vaccine. As Thompson explained, their study had actually found that they were substantially more likely to develop autism, if the children were vaccinated before reaching 36 months of age. (Click to Article)
