All these years when TV campaigns and advertising fliers at your doctor’s surgery and clinic have been hammering into you the absolute necessity of the elderly (anyone over the age of 65 years) MUST receive the annual Influenza Inoculation – and they were WRONG.
I am not joking about this – please read the story for yourself:
A growing body of research shows that because our immune systems age, flu vaccines don’t work as well in the elderly – the group of people most likely to die from flu-related causes.
The revelation has been so unsettling that public health officials have not shared the information widely with the public – even though some of the early findings have been a part of the scientific literature for several years now. (Oh my goodness they have been keeping this important information a secret? just my sarcasm folks!)
Michael Osterholm, who directs the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, Tuesday told a national conference on vaccine research that it’s time to be more open about the flu vaccine and its lack of protection for the elderly.
“These 36,000 deaths that we keep talking about with the flu, that we want to get people vaccinated for so they don’t happen, really is not going to occur. And we have to be honest about that,” Osterholm said.
There are other stories around on the internet telling much the same story – but I sincerely doubt you will read this information in mainstream media or see it on your evening television news.
What you will see and hear is STILL a BIG PUSH to get everyone vaccinated, from birth to the grave… there is money to be made from vaccinations people…. Hang the consequences and forget the facts!
And for the Northern Hemisphere winter, which is fast approaching they are still pushing the HYPE that everyone must be vaccinated. This year’s jab will not only contain the annual (ordinary) influenza vaccine, but the H1N1 as well – in combination. You will have NO CHOICE in the matter of which you get vaccinated against – if you choose to go down that road.
Only last winter they were telling us that seniors would already have some immunity to H1N1…. Amazing how things suddenly change – especially when the H1N1 Pandemic fizzled out and governments were left with massive amounts of out of date vaccines.
When H1N1 first hit last year, the CDC explained that seniors weren’t included in the first round of shots because studies indicated the risk of infection in this age group was less than for younger groups.
But now that H1N1 is part of the seasonal shot, the CDC and WHO have some hefty plans for the same seniors who, last year, they said were less likely to get H1N1.
A higher dose formulation of an inactivated seasonal influenza vaccine (Fluzone High-Dose, manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur, licensed by FDA on December 23, 2009) for use in people age 65 years and older will be available in the 2010–11 influenza season.
Fluzone High-Dose contains four times the amount of influenza antigen compared to other inactivated seasonal influenza vaccines. …
Studies are underway to assess the relative effectiveness of Fluzone High-Dose compared to standard dose inactivated influenza vaccine, but results from those studies will not be available before the 2010–11 influenza season.** [Emphasis mine.]
Yes, you read that right: if you’re age 65 or older, the CDC wants you to take a flu vaccine this fall that not only contains an antigen they previously said you probably already have antibodies to (H1N1), but that is also four times as potent, with no safety evaluation whatsoever until AFTER the season is underway!
Again, the CDC is asking you to be a part of a large public health experiment.
This is why we’re warning you early, because for the most part, none of this is really known. It’s not been announced. It certainly has not received widespread publicity.
People do yourself and your loved ones a BIG FAVOUR and read this:
Then get the word out to everyone as fast as possible. Don’t let them abuse you again this year with the terror and scare tactics; have the facts at your fingertips and be proactive please. Tell them NO JAB!
