(NaturalNews) Finally there's some truth in advertising about flu shots. A CVS pharmacy is promoting flu shots using images of the grim reaper, the most widely-recognized symbol of death. In a photo snapped by a NaturalNews reader and sent to us, an adult grim reaper (complete with a scythe blade) holds a sign that reads, "Flu shots HERE! CVS Pharmacy."
The further push the symbolism of death, a child-sized grim reaper stands next to the adult -- oh look, it's a cute family! -- holding a flu propaganda sign that reads, "YOU vs FLU" which promotes a "$5 gift card" when you get a flu shot.
The message is very clear: Flu shots are associated with death. And that's true, by the way, given that flu shots cause some people to suffer severe neurological problems or even death. On top of that, flu shots offer no scientifically validated protection against influenza! In fact, every flu shot is an "experimental" flu shot, given that it has never been adequately tested for safety nor effectiveness.
Here's the photo:
The grim reaper is a great spokesperson for flu shots
For once, we applaud CVS pharmacies for truthful advertising. If you're going to promote flu shots, it's only ethical to make sure people are reminded the shots may kill them. After all, pharmacists and nurses don't bother telling people this simple truth, so it's important to have somebody informing CVS customers what they're really buying.
In fact, I think the grim reaper should be the CVS mascot! They should hang one over the pharmacy department in every CVS store. And when patients purchase prescription medications to "treat" their ailments, they should be asked to sign a contract with Death.
What's really disturbing about all this, however, is that a bunch of CVS employees were so ignorant about the dangers of flu shots that they didn't even realize that using a grim reaper to promote a flu shot that kills many recipients is probably not the image CVS wants to portray. CVS employees probably thought it was just "cute." Ha! Look at the grim reaper promoting the flu shots! How cute!
And why not? We've got a Nobel Peace Prize winning President of the USA who runs a "kill list" containing the names of Americans to murder (http://www.naturalnews.com/033835_White_Hous...). So why not have the grim reaper promote vaccines and medications, too?
I think it would have been even funnier if we put the head of Bill Gates in the grim reaper costume, using Photoshop like this:
