(NaturalNews) Experts have advised the government that all children should be given annual flu vaccine shots in schools. The advice, given as part of a consultation on preventable disease, said that is would raise immunity in the crowded environment of schools, and therefore in the wider community. It was claimed that the expense of undertaking such a massive vaccination program, would be balanced by the savings from not having to treat cases of flu. The treatment of seasonal flu is often rest, fluids and paracetamol or ibuprofen, a very cheap over the counter remedy. Anti-viral medicine is only considered for those with previous health problems such as a weakened immune system.
The vaccinations were recommended to be of the nasal spray type, as this is considered much safer and effective than injections, and that all children from the ages of five to seventeen should be included. The vaccinations would need to start in 2014 to allow for the acquisition of stocks for the first wave.
The expert panel that recommended the implementation of the plan consisted of representatives of health groups, doctors and vaccine manufacturers. The proposal suggests that by immunizing all children it will prevent the infection of vulnerable family members such as pregnant women and grandparents.
Contradictory advice and instruction
Vaccinations are currently recommended for all vulnerable groups, such as pregnant women, children with asthma, people over the age of 55 and for anyone with autoimmune disorders. Contrary to this advice it is advised that anyone who is ill or is pregnant should not have the flu shots due to the burden on the immune system. Some people also believe that it is possible to become ill after the vaccination with flu-like symptoms. Manufacturers and health officials say this is not possible as there is no live virus in the vaccine, however the side effects can be from a reaction to ingredients used during manufacture.
It is of no surprise that the advice of the industry that makes the vaccines is that we should buy more of them. However it is quite alarming that the advice for being vaccinated in this manner is so conflicting. By having a policy of vaccinating all children, there is no consultation with the patient as to their suitability for treatment or to gain parental consent. Also the question has to be raised as to why the nasal spray is safer, when the vaccine companies have always asserted that the vaccines were safe. Ingredients in the flu vaccine can be found http://www.healthscents4u.com/Pages/FluVaccineIngredients.aspx . Many contain ingredients such as formaldehyde, mercury, squalene and egg protein. Without consultation it is possible that allergies and adverse reactions will occur, and it will be a lottery as to whose children are affected. The results of vaccine trials state that up to 95 percent of subjects have no adverse reactions. In a program that vaccinates 10 million people, that means half a million will be made ill in ways more expensive to treat than seasonal flu.
