(Natural News) A State Public Health Emergency has been issued in Alabama by Governor Kay Ivey as a flu outbreak grips the state. Schools are closing and hospitals are filling up as the flu vaccine proves to be a spectacular failure yet again this year.
Hospital emergency rooms and outpatient clinics are reporting a very high volume of patients. Children’s of Alabama has issued a diversion protocol as they’ve run out of beds, instead requesting that patients are diverted to a different pediatric hospital. In addition, they’ve announced that they may transfer some of their patients to other hospitals to provide everyone with the best care possible.
UAB Hospital, meanwhile, is rescheduling elective, non-emergency surgeries because it is over capacity with flu patients.
In 20 of the state’s 67 counties, hospitals have less than 10 percent capacity available, with many having patients sitting in ERs waiting for a bed to become available.
The problem was so bad at the Briarwood Christian School that it had to close because of the sheer number of teachers and students out with flu. They’ve also rescheduled home sports events that were planned for the weekend.
Huntsville’s Randolph School also had to close several campuses because of the flu outbreak. Authorities point out that people are generally considered infectious for five to seven days, so they should avoid going back to work or school even after they start to get better.
Experts in the state are warning residents to stay home if they have a fever and to cover coughs and sneezes. They are also being asked not to visit family and friends who are in the hospital, and they are reminded to wash their hands frequently and to clean and disinfect.
It’s not just Alabama experiencing this problem, by the way. The flu has now officially become an epidemic across the nation, according to the Centers for Disease Control, with every state save Hawaii noting widespread flu illness.
Aren’t flu vaccines supposed to prevent flu outbreaks?
All of this begs the question: If the flu vaccine is so effective that nearly everyone is strongly encouraged to get it, how has this situation gotten so out of hand?
The answer is simple: The flu vaccine is ineffective. This is something that science has proven time and time again. To cite just one example, a study from The Scripps Research Institute found that the way in which vaccines like the flu shot are mass-produced actually causes them to mutate, which renders them completely useless.
The flu shot simply not working and you coming down with the flu in spite of it isn’t the worst thing that can happen if you get one. Flu shots contain brain-damaging mercury, and this is behind the rise in spontaneous abortions among pregnant women who get the jab.
As if that weren’t bad enough, the flu shot actually weakens your immunity to the flu in the future, as a study from the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center recently proved. The researchers in that study found that women who got a flu shot the year before had lower antibody response in subsequent years. This is why more and more people are actually getting the flu, and it creates a vicious cycle wherein Big Pharma uses the resulting flu outbreaks as a reason to try to scare even more people into getting the flu vaccine.
Thankfully, there is a lot more you can do to avoid getting the flu beyond simply washing your hands and hoping for the best. For example. zinc, vitamin C and vitamin D can all help to boost your natural immunity to flu without any of the nasty side effects that come with injecting mercury into your body.
