(NaturalNews) Federal health officials are pushing hard this year to convince everyone to get the flu shot, but according to reports, this will only be possible if drug companies are able to produce the vaccines quicker than they did last year. So in order to make this happen, the government is doling out roughly $2 billion in taxpayer funds to Big Pharma to spur faster vaccine roll-out.

The hysteria over last year's supposed swine flu pandemic led to the development of millions of vaccines that were never used. By the time drug companies finished producing the vaccines, flu season was virtually over, leaving millions of leftover doses to rot in warehouses.

So this year, officials are doing everything they can to speed up the production process so the vaccines will be ready when the scare campaigns begin this fall. Except this time, officials are planning to target virtually everyone over the age of six months, including healthy, young adults.

This year's shot contains strains of last year's H1N1 virus, as well as strains of H3N2 and influenza B. Officials are aiming to have manufacturers produce up to 165 million doses of this combo vaccine, which the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says will be more than have ever been produced for a single flu season.

According to reports, the CDC is soon planing to launch a full ad campaign to promote the new shot, and is even encouraging people who already got the H1N1 vaccine last year to get it again this year.

Seasonal flu vaccines, however, typically do not even contain the strains that ends up infecting the population at large that year. These same vaccines also contain harmful adjuvants, preservatives, and other toxic chemicals that are implicated in causing autoimmune disorders, reproductive problems and even cancer.

The best ways to prevent yourself from getting the flu includes getting plenty of vitamin D, drinking lots of clean water, getting plenty of rest and loading up on powerful superfoods every day.
