(NaturalNews) The U.K.'s government-run National Health Service (NHS) is trying to implement a new mass vaccination scheme that involves vaccinating every single child in the country with AstraZeneca's nasal influenza shot Fluenz, also known as FluMist in the U.S. According to Reuters, the program, which is expected to cost the equivalent of about $155 million a year in taxpayer dollars, will deliver live attenuated flu viruses to nine million British children annually beginning in 2014.
Once implemented, the program will make the U.K. the first country in the world to vaccinate all of its children, including healthy children, for influenza on the taxpayers' dime. It will also make the U.K. the first country in the world to abandon traditional injection flu vaccines, which typically contain inactivated virus strains, for a nasal spray version that actually contains a supposedly weakened, but potentially more virulent, version of the live virus.
In bid to push Fluenz, authorities admit that traditional flu vaccines don't work
Because the idea is so controversial, authorities are still in the investigatory stage, according to reports, and are testing the waters to see how the public will react as the plan is gradually unleashed. But in the process of this, British authorities are basically now admitting that injection-based flu vaccines are a failure at preventing the flu, which we here at NaturalNews have long been saying.
This shocking admission is being used to claim that inhalation-based flu vaccines work better, of course, which is in turn supposed to convince the public that the mass vaccination campaign is beneficial for public health. But these authorities have no evidence to prove that Fluenz works any better than traditional flu vaccines at preventing the flu, as both types of vaccines, when you really take a look at the numbers, do practically nothing to prevent the flu.

MedImmune, maker of Fluenz (FluMist), lobbied for taxpayer-funded childhood flu shots in the past
It is no surprise, really, that an increasingly oppressive, "big brother" country like the U.K. is trying to mandate the flu vaccine for all children, especially since MedImmune, the division of AstraZeneca that produces FluMist, already tried to mandate the shot for all children ages five through 18 back in 2004. According to reports, MedImmune several years ago tried to lobby the U.S. government to include FluMist in its Vaccines for Children program, a taxpayer-funded vaccine program.

Merck & Co. tried to do the same thing with its highly toxic Gardasil vaccine for human papillomavirus (HPV) in Texas, having convinced Texas Governor and traitor Rick Perry to try to mandate it for all young girls in the Lone Star State back in 2008. (http://www.ageofautism.com/2011/08/governor-rick-perrys-.html) That effort ultimately failed, as the mandate was reversed, but many young girls still became injured, many of them permanently injured, as a result of Perry's betrayal of the people of his state.
