CDC already pushing next year's flu shot despite last year's vaccine debacle
by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) The same government agency that admitted back in December that last season's flu shot was a complete failure (oops!) is already hawking this year's "new and improved" flu vaccine lineup before summer has even officially begun.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says it plans to introduce two new flu vaccines this fall, a trivalent (three-in-one) and a quadrivalent (four-in-one) variety, that it hopes will work better than last year's jabs. They likely won't, of course, but the CDC has to at least try if it hopes to convince anyone with an IQ over that of a rock to take these shots willingly.
According to mainstream reports, last year's flu vaccine reduced flu-associated doctor visits by a mere 19% in those who took the shot compared to those who didn't. The CDC website claims 23%, but the takeaway is still the same: Flu shots are minimally effective, at best, and there really isn't any solid benchmark for confirming that flu shots in any way reduce flu infection or associated complications.
A nominal reduction in hospitalizations, it turns out, doesn't scientifically substantiate claims that flu shots are "safe and effective." We reported on this extensively back in 2011, noting that blatant data manipulation is how authorities are able to make wild claims about flu shots being 60% effective when they're really only about 1% effective.
But who cares about science? If the CDC says flu vaccines are safe and effective, then by golly I'm going to get one! This seems to be what the CDC is hoping the public will say, anyway, as it attempts to pull the wool over the eyes of anyone dumb enough to offer up his or her body for injection with a syringe packed to the brim with live viruses, heavy metals, chemical preservatives and byproducts of infanticide.
Flu shots don't work, and they're contributing to strain resistance and mutation Though this year's flu shots will contain new flu strains not included in last year's vaccines, there's really nothing reassuring about this. The entire strain selection process, it turns out, is nothing short of random, with scientists literally guessing which flu strains to put in flu shots every year. For all we know, these immunologists sit around and throw darts at a dartboard to decide which strains to choose.
The CDC says on its website that scientists choose which strains to include in vaccines based upon which ones are currently circulating, how they are spreading, and how well current vaccine strains are protecting against newly identified strains. In other words, it's a reactionary process that almost always misses the boat, while at the same time exposing millions to potentially debilitating illnesses.
"Each year the flu vaccine makers take their best guess at which virus strains will be the most common and create the vaccine based on an educated guess," explains AutismSpot.com. "So, by utilizing a flu vaccine, not only are you putting your health (or the health of your infant or child) at risk, you're also doing it for something that may or may not even work!"
Part of the problem is that influenza strains are constantly mutating and developing resistance to conventional therapies, including flu shots and antiviral medications. With this in mind, it makes little sense to continue pushing more flu shots using the mantra that they at least provide some protection, when in fact they provide almost no protection and are clearly contributing to the spread of flu.
