Children Who Get Flu Vaccine Have Three Times Risk Of Hospitalization For Flu, Study Suggests

The Disgusting Stuff in Flu Shots
Posted By: Sherri Tenpenny, DO 08/23/2017
It’s that time again: the hype has begun to push flu shots into the arms of everyone, from six-month-old infants to 96-year-old grandparents. Flu vaccines have been around since the 1930s when it was discovered that the influenza viruses grew well in eggs and could be harvested for a vaccine. Flu shots contain stray, potentially cancer-causing stray viruses and the multi-dose vials remain loaded with mercury. For nearly 90 years, this disgusting slurry has annually been injected into humans. Truth is, the long-term consequences of this action are completely unknown.

The CDC Claims the Flu Shot Reduces Mortality in the Elderly. But Where’s the Evidence?
December 04, 2018 By Jeremy R. Hammond, Guest Contributor, Children’s Health Defense
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone aged six months and up, including pregnant women, get an annual influenza vaccine. The two fundamental assumptions underlying the CDC’s policy are that vaccination reduces transmission of the virus and reduces the risk of potentially deadly complications. Yet multiple reviews of the scientific literature have concluded that there is no good scientific evidence to support the CDC’s claims.

Avoid Getting the Flu? Maybe not

by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABIHM

We have been taught that germs are bad and that they are lurking around every corner, waiting for the opportunity to invade defenseless humans. We go to great lengths to combat these potential invaders; we employ frequent hand-washing with copious amounts of soap and grimace at the thought of eating a morsel of food picked up from the floor. Doctors and the media discuss the flu season as though getting the flu is inevitable unless, of course, you get a flu shot.

But similar to other unquestioningly accepted medical concepts, convincing us that we have a frail immune system that must be strengthened by vaccines is a medical myth. A better understanding of the symbiotic relationship between humans and microbes is long overdue.

So not only can the flu shot directly cause the flu, as Dr. Oz and Piers Morgan demonstrated on national television to millions of people, it can also make the flu more lethal.

When it comes to the concept of vaccines, many people have argued that there is stronger science backing the idea of the human/animal immune system being the better option at defending against illnesses. And really, why wouldn’t this logic be more readily accepted?

The immune system is a savvy, intelligent system that’s driven by interactions with the current environment and even, genetics, that give it insight into history. Vaccines are created in labs as a reaction to bacteria and illnesses that are already evolved, or evolving. The vaccine, particularly the flu shot, is a reaction to what pharmaceutical companies “think will happen.”

If the document, which was received anonymously, is true, it would allow the CDC to severely inflate flu case statistics. And this, in turn, would allow more flu shots to be pushed.

Check out the documents for yourself.

Flu Kills Eight Santa Barbara Residents in Two Weeks
January 8, 2018
Eight Santa Barbara County residents have died from the flu in the past two weeks alone. By contrast, only three residents died throughout last year’s entire flu season, which typically runs from October to April. All eight people were ages 65 or older.

“These numbers are unprecedented for the past 10 years,” said Dr. Charity Dean, public health czar for Santa Barbara County. Dean said all but one of the eight had been vaccinated and all had been given flu-fighting medications. “I’m worried about how severe our flu season will be,” she said.

Mother-of-two, 34, claims she was left blind, diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and covered in a rash 'after having the FLU JAB' and fears she may never recover
22 December 2017 By Jacqui Deevoy For Mailonline
A mother went blind in one eye and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis just weeks after getting the flu shot, she has claimed.

Jennifer Whitney, from Mukilteo, Washington, had the vaccine due to the insistence of her boss - despite being concerned about any side effects.

However, the same boss was forced to 'let her go' because she ended up taking too much time off to cope with the repercussions of the shot.

Nurses Continue to be Justified in Refusing Mandatory Flu Shots
October 26th 2017
Similar to the general public, nurses are increasingly refusing dangerous and often ineffective flu shots

Responding to nurses who exert their science-based vaccination choice, hospitals have used both heavy-handed public shaming and coercion tactics of making them wear masks. Every year, scores of images populate social media feeds showing nurses wearing masks forced upon them during their hospital shifts because they refused their flu shots. A popular mainstream message is that we must all get our flu shots to protect the elderly who may die from the flu or its complications. Yet, however ‘caring’ this PR strategy may appear, we should occasionally look at the results.

Nurses Across the U.S. are Taking a Stand Against Forced Flu Vaccines
October 20, 2017 [update from 2014]
Health Impact News

As 2014 begins to unfold, it is becoming clear that the medical care industry is facing a crisis.

We have already reported about how many doctors are refusing to participate in the new Obamacare health insurance exchanges (See: Seven out of every 10 Physicians in California are Rebelling against Obamacare). But another unintended consequence of new medical care legislation is the refusal of nurses to comply with new mandatory flu vaccination requirements. With a nation-wide shortage in nurses already problematic long before Obamacare was implemented, things are only going to get worse.

Experienced nurses across the United States are choosing to lose their jobs rather than submit to forced mandatory flu vaccinations. This began last flu season, in 2012, and we reported many stories of brave nurses standing up for their rights and refusing to submit to mandatory flu vaccinations as a requirement to keeping their jobs. (See: Brave Nurses Lose Jobs to Stand on Principle and Refuse Forced Vaccinations)

New Bill Would Make Mandatory Flu Vaccines Illegal
September 13, 2017
Have you ever felt pressured into a flu shot by your co-workers? I know that I have. In fact, when I used to work in the corporate America grind, I got denounced as being “scared of needles” and “irresponsible” for rejecting a flu shot at the office. I get the flu occasionally, however, I tend to rely on a healthy diet and some daily Vitamin C to do the trick for me. I’m not a fan of injecting anything into me unless absolutely necessary. I’ve never deemed a flu shot as being in such an urgent category.

But for many American workers, being ridiculed over their decision to pass on a flu shot is the least of their concerns. Some reject a flu shot at their own employment peril. Yes, some employees in the health care industry are fired for not taking a flu shot.

One Republican Representative, Christina Hagan of Ohio, has introduced a bill to put an end to such penalty. Hagan says there isn’t sufficient logic behind terminating any employee, including those in health care, for rejecting the flu shot injection.

Vaccine industry now pushing for vaccine “patches” that use 100 micro needles to administer toxic chemicals to your body
July 05, 2017 by: Amy Goodrich
(Natural News) Every year, doctors, employers, schools, and health authorities recommend that children and adults get a flu shot. However, the influenza vaccine has been shown to be highly ineffective and toxic for humans. Over the past couple of years, the word has gone out and fewer than half of all Americans received the flu shot during the 2015-2016 season, reported the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Since an estimated three out of five Americans didn’t get their flu vaccination, the industry is on a mission to protect its cash cow by pushing new, painless vaccine patches on the people.

Why Are Nurses and Healthcare Workers Across the U.S. Refusing Mandatory Flu Vaccines?
Claire Dwoskin, Founder, Childrens Medical Safety Research Institute
The Truth Behind Flu Shot Mandates for Healthcare Workers
Special to Health Impact News
When you are sick, injured or just need a check-up, you trust that your doctor is giving you valid, conflict-free, evidence-based advice on what is best for your health. The last thing you want to believe is that your doctor is putting a drug company’s interests, or their own, over your health.

What if you discovered that the flu vaccine, or any vaccine, is being given to you or your child without your consent or knowledge, or to a loved one in the hospital at a time when it is contraindicated for his or her condition? What if you learned that your health care providers were, themselves, force-vaccinated against their better judgement just to stay employed? What if these policies were ultimately driven by financial incentives for those who make and enforce them?

The following answers, interspersed with personal stories I have heard directly from parents, patients and healthcare workers, will have you questioning the next time you are faced with vaccine decisions. Protecting your loved ones and your right to informed consent when it comes to any medical procedure that carries with it the risk of injury or death depends on YOU doing your own research. An informed and educated healthcare consumer is the best protection against becoming a statistic in the epidemic of eroding national health.

Flu Vaccine Increases Your Risk of the Flu
February 27, 2017 by Frank Shallenberger, MD
Flu season is almost over. While the propaganda around the flu vaccine continues, the science behind the shots tells us how off the propaganda is. Let me warn you, if you're a fan of flu vaccines, you are probably not going to like what this new study has to say.

The authors of the study were reporting specifically on the effectiveness of the flu vaccine in the years 2012 to 2015. To do the study, they looked at 1,930 men and women who came down with the flu during those years and how effectively the flu vaccine worked for them. Out of this group, 815 (42%) of them tested positive for the flu. Of these, 72% tested positive for influenza A and 28% for influenza B. According to the authors, "Virtually all influenza A cases involved the subtype virus known as H3N2." And they went on to report that the vaccine efficacy or VE for this virus was -16%. So, what exactly does that mean?

Vaccine efficacy (VE) is the percentage of a reduction in a disease in a vaccinated group of people compared to an unvaccinated group. A VE of 100% would mean that the vaccine prevented the disease in 100% of those who got the vaccine. But what in the world does a negative VE like -16% mean? Believe it or not, it means that those men and women who had the vaccine were 16% more likely to get the flu than those who refused the vaccine. In other words, a negative VE is not a good thing for a vaccine to have. But hang on, there's more to talk about.

For example, what happens to the flu vaccine VE if you get the vaccine year after year? Hold on to your hats.

CDC forced to reveal documents proving Thimerosal vaccine preservative causes autism
May 26, 2016
(NaturalNews) Factually speaking, the CDC is a malicious, criminally-run anti-science quackery front group for the vaccine industry. As part of its criminal activity, it has long insisted that the vaccine preservative thimerosal is not tied to autism. But once-secret documents, now forced to be revealed by the CDC, prove the agency knew that thimerosal causes autism but deliberately hid that evidence from the public in exactly the same way the EPA hid the truth about lead poisoning of the public water supply in Flint, Michigan.

UK government awards compensation for swine flu vaccine that caused brain damage to hundreds of children
March 3rd, 2016
The UK government is now financially compensating at least 60 families in a multi-million-dollar settlement that is likely to grow, as more patients suffer from the effects of a faulty swine flu vaccine that has already caused numerous cases of brain damage among children.

“The government is expected to receive a bill of approximately £60 million [$90.1 million], with each of the 60 victims expected to receive about £1 million [$1.5 million] each,” International Business Times (IBT) reported.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, attorney Peter Todd, who is representing a number of victims, said, “There has never been a case like this before. The victims of this vaccine have an incurable and lifelong condition and will require extensive medication.”

Following an outbreak of swine flu in 2009, some 60 million people, most of them children, received vaccines. Health officials investigating the subsequent illnesses that sprouted discovered that the vaccine, Pandemrix, can actually cause narcolepsy and cataplexy in about 1 in 16,000 people.

Union says Ontario nurses can’t be forced to wear masks in flu season
Sep. 10, 2015
The Ontario Nurses Association says hospitals will no longer be allowed to shame health-care workers into getting a flu shot following an arbitrator’s ruling striking down a “vaccinate or mask” policy.

About 30 Ontario hospitals implemented the policy, which forces nurses and other hospital workers to wear an unfitted surgical mask for the entire flu season if they do not get the influenza vaccine, ONA president Linda Haslam-Stroud said Thursday.

The test case was against the Sault Area Hospital in Sault Ste. Marie, which tried to use the policy to boost their staff immunization rates, added Haslam-Stroud.

“They were basically coercing and shaming nurses into getting the influenza vaccine if they individually chose not to take it,” she said. “They made them all wear masks and they had little stickers on their name tag that everyone knew meant ‘I don’t have my vaccine.“’

Those Lucky Dogs
By: Dr. F. Edward Yazbak

Committee members chose to forget what my friend had told them just minutes earlier: Even in the adult population, the incidence of hepatitis B virus infection is almost a non-issue. In fact, the incidence is so low that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had commented: "State level incidence rates of hepatitis B are deemed unreliable. This item is not amenable to survey data collection due to low incidence. National estimates of hepatitis B incidence are corrected for underreporting by using an algorithm that adjusts reported incidence upward by approximately 6-fold." In Massachusetts, there had been only 19 cases of hepatitis B disease in the year 2000 or two cases per million residents. (2)

Talking of useless vaccines, the U.S. Senate voted before the Christmas break to "immunize" drug manufacturers who are preparing to get wealthy producing the "bird flu vaccine" for humans among whom the disease has never spread. The CDC has decreed that we should get ready even if the pandemic never materializes outside chicken coops. Interestingly, no one bothered to comment about why - if, indeed, the vaccine is safe - the manufacturers are so worried and why they need protection. On the other hand, if the vaccine has problems, then why were we rushing into it now?

The Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights (FTCR) suggested that more than one third of our Senators had reasons other than the national health to protect the vaccine manufacturers. Apparently 38 Senators had $13.4 million in pharmaceutical holdings and were likely to increase the value of their stock portfolios. (3, 4)

Many Hospitals Do Not Require Influenza Vaccinations for Staffers
December 09, 2015
A new study reported that more than half of hospitals still do not require their doctors, nurses, and other healthcare personnel to get the flu vaccine. Findings from the study are published in Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology.

In 2013, a survey of infection prevention specialists on their hospitals' flu vaccine policies was carried out by the University of Michigan and VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System. Of the 386 hospitals that responded, only 42.7% said they required influenza vaccines for all healthcare providers. Another 10% responded saying they would require it for the next flu season. Among the VA hospitals, only 1.3% required flu vaccinations.

Opposition from healthcare worker unions or concerns about staff opposition was cited as reasons by the non-VA infection prevention specialists for keeping their hospitals from requiring vaccination. The concern regarding union opposition was greater among VA hospitals where over one-fourth (27.6%) of surveyed infection control staff said it was a factor in the lack of a flu vaccination requirement. The researchers also noted the difference in willingness of hospital administrators to implement the vaccine requirement, with 22% of surveyed specialists saying their administration would not mandate the vaccine.

About 22% of non-VA hospitals said their staff was "strongly encouraged" to receive the flu vaccine. Due to federal restrictions, over half of the 77 surveyed VA hospitals stated that they could not mandate the vaccine.

Narcolepsy cases linked to flu vaccine subject to new compensation dispute
October 06, 2015

ernment lawyers are seeking to block compensation payments to people who developed the devastating sleep disorder, narcolepsy, as a result of a faulty swine flu vaccine. The Pandemrix vaccine made by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) was given to 6 million people in Britain and millions more across Europe during the 2009-10 swine flu pandemic, but was withdrawn when doctors noticed a rise in narcolepsy cases among those who received the jab.

In June, a 12-year-old boy was awarded £120,000 by a court that ruled he had been left severely disabled by narcolepsy caused by Pandemrix. The win ended a three-year battle with the government that argued his illness was not serious enough to warrant compensation.

Narcolepsy is a permanent condition that can cause people to fall asleep dozens of times a day, even when they are in mid-conversation. Some suffer from night terrors and a problem with muscular control called cataplexy that can lead them to collapse on the spot.

Letters: School vaccinations

Over four weeks I received a letter, a robocall, and a text from the school board about the availability of free FluMist vaccine in my children's schools. I visited the public website of AstraZeneca to learn more.

Thirty-two percent of the kids taking it will get runny nose/congestion; 13 percent headache; 10 percent lethargy; 9 percent sore throat; 6 percent decreased appetite; 4 percent muscle aches; and 7 percent will spike a fever to 100 degrees or more. Four strains of live attenuated influenza viruses will be shed from nasal passages for up to 28 days. Two-point-four percent of unvaccinated kids will contract FluMist strain influenza virus from the shedding.

On Sept. 22, the county school health and support clinical services director informed me that the AstraZeneca website is wrong. She refused to provide any written data about FluMist, instead referring me to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. There is nothing on the CDC website contradicting the information supplied by the manufacturer.

Russian Scientists Link H1N1 to GMO Foods

The alarming news that Russian scientists have made a direct link of the H1N1 Virus to Genetically Modified Foods is more disturbing than the US government allowing such contaminants in the American food supply. Most consumers are aware that GMO foods now unlabeled may have more of a punch in store when they consume these highly chemically altered foods.

The Russian Ministry of Health has issued the alert that US potato ( a favorite of the fast foods chains serving – french fries by the millions of pounds per day) are genetically modified amylopectin potatoes.

This report indicates the protease enzyme GMO potato was engineered to protect against virus X, but the real reason for this GMO is to spread the H1N1 influenza virus and release the H1N1 RNA into the host cells.

Prior to 2008 it was the flu, then the influenza flu, then the Type A Influenza flu then in 2009 it was the H1N1 Swine Flu that combined a bird flu, human flu and swine flu all rolled into one big Swine Flu manufactured in a laboratory with the Human Spanish Flu of 1918 which was stored in a laboratory had not been seen for over 100 years.

Hazards of Nasal Flu Vaccine as Program is Rolled Out in British Schools
August 01, 2014
This is an update of my article ‘UK Department of Health Deliberately Exposes Vulnerable Population to Flu Infection’ of May last year as the British government rolls out the program to entire school population this autumn (a product called Fluenz identical with Flumist used in the US). Recent draft minutes of the government advisory committee, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, show it to be in a double-bind over asthma cases and uncertain about egg allergy: “extrapolating findings on injectable vaccines to Fluenz® was problematic as nasal administration may be a more reactogenic route than intramuscular injection". (See HERE.) They will still be testing this with program in full gear.

The other problem they have is that the vaccine is “contraindicated for severe asthma” so they have to devise formal guidelines for which asthma sufferers should have the vaccine and which should not, but it begs the problem that the more severely affected asthma sufferers will be exposed to the viruses (which they might well not otherwise have come into contact with) by their schoolmates shedding them, turning on the head the proposition that they are protecting the vulnerable by vaccinating the fit. While the ethical problem is not stated it surely hovers silently above their deliberations and calls into question the very principles of the program (other than making lots of money for someone). The relevant portions of the text of the JCVI minutes follow that of my article as originally published.

Flu vaccine leads to $11.6 million government settlement for paralyzed former nurse

A former nurse will receive an $11.6 million government settlement to pay for future care after a flu vaccination left her paralyzed. The news could fuel another round of debate about whether vaccines should be mandated for staff in long-term care and other health fields.

Sarah Behie, 24, received the flu vaccination in October 2010 while working at Lehigh Valley Hospital, according to the Allentown Morning Call. Three weeks later, she experienced weakness and tingling in her limbs. She subsequently was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome — a neuromuscular disease in which the immune system attacks the nervous system.

Since then, she has been in the care of hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. She reportedly has lost the use of her legs and can barely use her upper body.

Swine flu jab link to killer nerve disease: Leaked letter reveals concern of neurologists over 25 deaths in America
15 August 2009
A warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.

The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.

It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.

GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.

The letter, sent to about 600 neurologists on July 29, is the first sign that there is concern at the highest levels that the vaccine itself could cause serious complications.

It refers to the use of a similar swine flu vaccine in the United States in 1976 when:

The California Flu Death Trap
By Bill Sardi - March 5, 2014
There just has to be a reason for the unusual rash of flu-related deaths in California. Even after the peak of the flu season has passed and a steep decline in hospitalizations signaled the flu season was almost over, reports of flu-related deaths keep coming in. If public health authorities know the reason for these deaths they certainly aren’t saying anything.

California mandates all health insurance plans must go through a health exchange and that puts many of the preventive health services mandated by the Affordable Care Act into play including free flu shots — not even copayments.

But ironically the number of flu deaths in California this season has skyrocketed 17-fold, from 14 deaths last year at this time to 243 deaths, mostly among adults age 25-64 years of age.

8 Damn Good Reasons Not to Get the Flu Shot

Every year the mainstream media war drum beats for you to get vaccinated against the flu. They rarely discuss anything but the benefits of the vaccine.


Maybe it is because many people are already skeptical about the flu vaccine.

I’m going to be very up front with you here. You rarely hear about the adverse reactions or about the toxic chemicals being injected into you. My goal is to get you to investigate vaccines more closely. Here are eight reasons to question the flu shot.

BMJ investigation exposes Big Pharma as conspirator in WHO pandemic flu scam
February 16, 2014
(NaturalNews) The World Health Organization (WHO) is the subject of a new investigation aimed at uncovering what really took place during the 2009 global influenza pandemic, which led to tens of millions of people being vaccinated for so-called "swine flu." A joint investigation by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism (BIJ) has already uncovered major conflicts of interest at WHO, whereby vaccine companies profited heavily from the pandemic and the mass hysteria that it generated.

The investigation is focused specifically on the emergency advisory committee that was assigned to make official recommendations to WHO about how to plan for the pandemic, which was fraught with controversy from the start. Comprising this advisory panel were individuals highly connected to pharmaceutical companies, say BMJ and BIJ, many of whom had a vested financial interest in promoting antiviral drugs and influenza vaccines, which have been linked to causing narcolepsy and other disorders.

Comparison of VAERS fetal-loss reports during three consecutive influenza seasons: was there a synergistic fetal toxicity associated with the two-vaccine 2009/2010 season?
2013 May
The aim of this study was to compare the number of inactivated-influenza vaccine-related spontaneous abortion and stillbirth (SB) reports in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database during three consecutive flu seasons beginning 2008/2009 and assess the relative fetal death reports associated with the two-vaccine 2009/2010 season. The VAERS database was searched for reports of fetal demise following administration of the influenza vaccine/vaccines to pregnant women. Utilization of an independent surveillance survey and VAERS, two-source capture-recapture analysis estimated the reporting completeness in the 2009/2010 flu season. Capture-recapture demonstrated that the VAERS database captured about 13.2% of the total 1321 (95% confidence interval (CI): 815-2795) estimated reports, yielding an ascertainment-corrected rate of 590 fetal-loss reports per million pregnant women vaccinated (or 1 per 1695). The unadjusted fetal-loss report rates for the three consecutive influenza seasons beginning 2008/2009 were 6.8 (95% CI: 0.1-13.1), 77.8 (95% CI: 66.3-89.4), and 12.6 (95% CI: 7.2-18.0) cases per million pregnant women vaccinated, respectively. The observed reporting bias was too low to explain the magnitude increase in fetal-demise reporting rates in the VAERS database relative to the reported annual trends. Thus, a synergistic fetal toxicity likely resulted from the administration of both the pandemic (A-H1N1) and seasonal influenza vaccines during the 2009/2010 season.

Stillbirths Caused By Flu Vaccination

The Flu Vaccine, Molecular Mimicry, Narcolepsy: Clues to Gardasil Injury
January 15th, 2014
What do molecular mimicry, the H1N1 Flu vaccine and the HPV vaccines Gardasil or Cervarix have to do with the brain neurons involved in narcolepsy or hypersomnia? Plenty. Researchers are learning that vaccine induced immune reactions can destroy innate cells via molecular mimicry and in the case of the flu vaccine, the hypocretin/orexin neurons responsible for maintaining wakefulness are attacked. Idiopathic hypersomnia, a derivative of narcolepsy is one of the many side effects reported by post Gardasil girls and women. Could the HPV vaccine be attacking those same neurons? Is molecular mimicry at play in the HPV vaccine too? The answers are yes and possibly, but with the HPV vaccine, the molecular mimicry is more widespread and the research only beginning to delineate its effects.

Swine flu vaccine causes girl to fall asleep 30 times a day; vaccine pushers still claim 'zero side effects'
January 09, 2014
(NaturalNews) The family of a 15-year-old Australian girl is seeking answers after their daughter developed a severe sleeping disorder following vaccination with Pandemrix, the infamous "swine flu" shot pushed during the 2009 "pandemic." Australia's reports that Chloe Glasson now falls asleep suddenly and without warning as many as 30 times a day, regardless of what she is doing, the result of a narcoleptic condition that emerged almost immediately after she was jabbed.

One of at least 100 people to develop narcolepsy following vaccination with Pandemrix, young Chloe recently disappeared for several hours while on a short walk to her grandmother's house. She reportedly went into a state of "dreamlike autopilot," during which time she wandered around aimlessly before eventually arriving home safely. But this was not before her frightened parents contacted authorities about their missing child.

New York City to force all children to be injected with mercury in the form of flu shots
December 12, 2013
(NaturalNews) Of all the toxic heavy metals, mercury is the most devastating to the brain. No legitimate scientist would ever argue that mercury is safe to inject into a child at any dose, and the CDC has never established any "safe" level of mercury in human blood for the simple reason that there's isn't any safe level.

Yet the New York City Board of Health has now decided that all children in New York City need to be injected with a devastating dose of toxic mercury as part of their twisted "public health" measure. Flu shots, of course, still contain the neurotoxin heavy metal known as mercury, yet virtually the entire medical establishment blatantly lies to the public and claims -- with a straight face -- that "all the mercury has been removed from vaccines."

That is an insidious lie. It's still in flu shots.

Highly toxic squalene MF59 adjuvant that caused Gulf War syndrome in military servicemen now being added to some civilian flu vaccines
September 27, 2013
(NaturalNews) Compulsory vaccination has long been a requirement to serve in the U.S. armed forces, and it is well documented that many of the vaccines administered to servicemen over the years have been experimental in nature, meaning they contained untested adjuvants and other questionable additives. But it has recently come to our attention that the highly toxic vaccine adjuvant squalene MF59, which was first given to servicemen back during the first Gulf War and later linked to causing Gulf War syndrome, is now being added to some civilian flu vaccines.

At a 2010 gathering of the American Rally for Personal Rights in Chicago, registered nurse and retired Air Force Captain Richard Rovet warned his listening audience about the dangers of squalene MF59, the devastation and horrors of which he witnessed first hand during his time in the service. The experimental oil-in-water adjuvant, which was forced on all servicemen beginning in 1999 via the mandatory anthrax vaccine, caused many of Capt. Rovet's comrades to suffer severe and permanent side effects. One of Capt. Rovet's closest friends, in fact, was actually killed as a result of squalene MF59.

In 1999 the U.S. Public Health Service issued a joint statement with the American Academy of Pediatrics and vaccine manufacturers agreeing that the heavy metal mercury, a known neurotoxin, used in Thimerosal vaccine preservative should be removed from vaccines “as soon as possible.”

However the U.S. Public Health Service is failing to meet the terms of this agreement. According the following CDC web sites, the U.S. Public Health Service, 14 years after the agreement to remove Thimerosal, still allows the CDC to buy and distribute preserved multi-dose flu vaccines for children that contain the heavy metal mercury.

Chickens Pegged as Source of H7N9 Flu
Published: April 25, 2013
Evidence from a single patient infected with the novel avian influenza virus H7N9 points to transmission from live poultry, Chinese researchers reported.

The virus isolated from a 64-year-old man who died from the infection was "almost identical" to that isolated from a chicken taken from a wet market with epidemiological ties to the patient, Lanjuan Li, MD, of Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China, and colleagues reported online in The Lancet.

The finding suggests that live poultry could be the source of the H7N9 outbreak, which has sickened 108 people in eastern China and killed 22 according to the latest official update from the World Health Organization. Investigations into the source are ongoing.

Flu vaccine causes 1,400 percent increased risk of narcolepsy
Monday, April 01, 2013
(NaturalNews) Speculation that an emergency vaccine widely administered for H1N1 (swine flu) may have caused a sharp uptick in cases of narcolepsy has been confirmed following the release of a new study out of the U.K. As reported in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), individuals given the Pandemrix vaccine for influenza during the 2009/2010 swine flu "pandemic" had a 1,400 percent increased risk of developing the neurological disorder compared to those not vaccinated.

Drawing from data collected in the aftermath of the vaccine's release, researchers found that the use of Pandemrix, particularly among young people between the ages of four and 18, increased the risk of narcolepsy by a factor of about 14 compared to those who did not get the jab. And the ingredient believed to be primarily responsible for this increase is an adjuvant known as AS03, a squalene-based component used in a number of vaccines produced by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK).

And these are BAD cases of narcolepsy, not the minor cases I have seen in clinical practice. There is also more Guillain-Barre with this vaccine.


No seasonal flu vaccines used in the United States contain adjuvants, nor does the existing H5N1 vaccine in the US emergency stockpile. The government has acquired a supply of adjuvants for possible emergency use, but they are not part of a specific vaccine.

If the press covered the flu outbreak like they cover autism…

It’s on every major news outlet. The alarm is being sounded. People are dying. The mayor of Boston has called it an emergency in his city.

Now imagine what the coverage would be like if they reported on the flu like they do on autism.

First of all, officials wouldn’t be sure if there really were more people with flu or if it was just better diagnosing of illnesses that they used to call other things. They’d also claim the diagnosis has been expanded and that’s why it looks like more people have the flu. And in the midst of the outbreak, officials would be working feverously to change the accepted symptoms of the flu.

Most of all, no one would be worried. They’d never use words like “emergency, “ “crisis,” and “widespread outbreak.” They’d only be mildly concerned and view the whole thing as an medical curiosity that we have all the time in the world to look at. Of course, no one would acknowledge people are actually suffering with the flu. We’d only see smiling faces of people who are purported to have the disease.

The Shocking Lack of Evidence Supporting Flu Vaccines
Thursday, December 29th 2011 Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder
With the flu season ramping up, many are looking to vaccination as a "preventive" approach. Those who abstain are often accused of being uneducated, or worse, socially irresponsible. Nothing could be further from the truth.

As it presently stands, it is not sound medical science, but primarily economic and political motivation which generates the immense pressure behind mass participation in the annual ritual of flu vaccination.

It is a heavily guarded secret within the medical establishment (especially within the corridors of the CDC) that the Cochrane Database Review (CDR), considered by many within the evidence-based medical model to be the gold standard for assessing the effectiveness of common medical interventions, does not lend unequivocal scientific support to the belief and/or propaganda that flu vaccines are safe and effective.

Women, Vaccines & Bodily Integrity

By Barbara Loe Fisher

2013 was only a few days old when I saw a photo of 61-year old Ethel Hoover. . veteran hospital nurse, who had only missed 4 or 5 days of work in 22 years, she was fired from her job for declining to get a flu shot.

Defending Freedom of Conscience

On her last day of work, she wore black. In the photo, she was standing straight, looking directly into the camera, unafraid, signaling strong ownership of the principled choice she made in defense of autonomy, [1] freedom of conscience [2] [3] and protection of bodily integrity. [4]

“This is my body,” she said. “I have a right to refuse the flu vaccine.” [5]

Punishment: No Shots, No Job

The Methodist-founded Indiana University Health Goshen Hospital rejected the medical and religious exemptions Ethel filed so they could punish her for obeying her conscience and choosing to stay healthy another way. Refusing to respect her beliefs or superior health and work attendance record, they cited the “no shots, no job” vaccine mandates being pushed by public health officials and Pharma-funded medical trade groups [6] as a reason to fire her.

MNA/NNU Opposes Hospital Industry Policies to Mandate Masking of Healthy Nurses and Staff As Part of Flu Prevention Program
CANTON, Mass., Dec. 20, 2012
There is no medical justification for these policies, which are designed to bully nurses and staff to take the flu vaccine regardless of nurses' medical and/or personal concerns

BMC nurse bullied into taking vaccine by this policy has reaction that places her in ICU

Hospitals are using this coercive tactic to boost flu vaccination rates to avoid losing Medicare funding instead of implementing truly effective prevention strategies, including safe RN staffing

CANTON, Mass., Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the state prepares for the upcoming influenza season, the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA), the state's largest union of registered nurses and health professionals, strongly opposes a new policy being implemented by a number of hospital and health care employers calling for mandatory masking of health care workers as a component of a flu prevention program, and threatens to fire nurses who don't wear the mask throughout the hospital all day.

"Rather than focus on systems and policies that actually prevent flu transmission, many institutions are now focused on setting a misguided and ineffective policy which mandates that healthy health care workers wear a mask for eight to twelve hours while on duty if unvaccinated," according to a position statement approved today by the MNA/NNU Board of Directors. "We encourage nurses to become educated on the risks and benefits of the influenza vaccine and decide whether to vaccinate, but there is no medical evidence that the masking of nurses or healthy workers prevents the transmission of influenza."

H1N1 vaccine linked to 700 percent increase in miscarriages
Wednesday, December 08, 2010 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) Recent data presented to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Advisory Committee on Children's Vaccines has revealed some shocking information about the effects of the H1N1 / swine flu vaccine on pregnant women. According to the report, the rate of miscarriage among pregnant women during the 2009 H1N1 / swine flu pandemic soared by over 700 percent compared to previous years, pointing directly to the vaccine as the culprit -- but the CDC denies the truth and continues to insist nobody has been harmed.

According to the CDC, nearly 50 percent of all pregnant women were vaccinated with the H1N1 vaccine during the 2009 / 2010 influenza season. Those whose physicians instructed them to get a seasonal flu shot were three times more likely to get it, while those instructed specifically to get the H1N1 shot were ten times more likely to get it. And the numbers clearly show that along with the rise in vaccinations due to the H1N1 scare came the sharp increase in miscarriages, including a slew of actual reported adverse events.

But the CDC does not seem to care about the facts, as numerous reports indicate the agency has failed to report any of this vital information to vaccine suppliers. In fact, when presented with the data for the third time, Dr. Marie McCormick, chair of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Vaccine Risk and Assessment Working Group, actually had the audacity to claim that there were no vaccine-related adverse events in pregnant women caused by the vaccine.

TriHealth fires 150 employees for not getting flu shotsd
Company offered the shots for free
UPDATED 7:45 AM EST Nov 27, 2012
CINCINNATI —One of Cincinnati’s largest employers fired approximately 150 employees Wednesday for failing to get a required flu shot. TriHealth offered all of its 10,800 employees free flu shots. Employees had a month to get the flu shot. The deadline was Nov. 16. Employees who did not get the shot were terminated Wednesday, a company spokesperson said.

Employees who were terminated can appeal to be reinstated after receiving the shot.

TriHealth: Workers have until Dec. 3 to get flu shot
Employees can be exempted for health, religious reasons

CINCINNATI —Nearly a week after 150 employees were reported to have been let go, TriHealth is clarifying a dust-up over mandatory flu shots.

TriHealth spokesman Jeff Stewart said no employees were fired.

He said letters were sent out last week to 150 employees stating that they need to get the flu shot by Dec. 3 -- the official start of the flu season.

Officials said that since that notice, 82 employees have either received the shot or provided a valid reason why they couldn't get the shot.

Stewart said those reasons are either based on religious beliefs or are health related, such as allergies to the flu vaccine.

TriHealth said 59 of the remaining 68 employees are optional, meaning they are agency employees who work with the company on a temporary basis.

Administrators said those workers still need to receive the flu shot or provide a valid reason not to.

Stewart said nine other workers still need to get the shot or provide a reason by Dec. 3.

Officials said any employee who completes the approved paperwork to skip the shot must wear a mask when working around patients.

Fetal Deaths up 4000% after pregnant mothers took Flu Vaccine
November 26, 2012

Documentation received from the National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW) states that between 2009 and 2010 the mercury-laden combined flu vaccinations have increased Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Systems (VAERS) fetal death reports by 4,250 percent in pregnant women. Eileen Dannemann, NCOW’s director, made abundantly clear that despite these figures being known to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the multiple-strain, inactivated flu vaccine containing mercury (Thimerosal) has once again been recommended to pregnant women as a safe vaccination this season.

Outraged by the CDC’s total disregard for human life, Ms. Dannemann accused the CDC of ‘willful misconduct,’ saying that they are responsible for causing the deaths of thousands of unborn babies. She stated that the CDC deliberately misled the nation’s obstetricians and gynecologists and colluded with the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (AJOG) to mislead the public by advertising the flu vaccine as a safe vaccine for pregnant women when they knew fully well that it was causing a massive spike in fetal deaths.

In a letter to Dr. Joseph Mercola, Ms. Dannemann wrote:

“Not only did the CDC fail to disclose the spiraling spike in fetal death reports in real time during the 2009 pandemic season as to cut the fetal losses, but also we have documented by transcript Dr. Marie McCormick, chairperson of the Vaccine Safety Risk Assessment Working Group (VSRAWG) on September 3, 2010, denying any adverse events in the pregnant population during the 2009 Pandemic season.” [1]

Novartis didn’t provide enough information for officials to know the exact makeup of the proteins found in the Agrippal and Fluad shots, or their impact on the quality and safety of the vaccine, Italy’s Health Ministry said today in a statement. There have been no reports of illness because of the particles, officials said.

A remarkable study published in the Cochrane Library found no evidence of benefit for influenza vaccinations. It’s also damns the quality of flu vaccine studies by saying that the vast majority of trials were inadequate. The authors stated that the only ones showing benefit were industry-funded. They also pointed out that the industry-funded studies were more likely to be published in the most prestigious journals … and one more thing: They found cases of severe harm caused by the vaccines, in spite of inadequate reporting of adverse effects.

Vancouver researcher finds flu shot is linked to H1N1 illness
By Helen Branswell, Canadian Press September 10, 2012

Researchers, led by Vancouver's Dr. Danuta Skowronski, an influenza expert at the B.C. Centre for Disease Control, noticed in the early weeks of the pandemic that people who got a flu shot for the 2008-09 winter seemed to be more likely to get infected with the pandemic virus than people who hadn't received a flu shot.

Five studies done in several provinces showed the same unsettling results. But initially research outside Canada did not, and the effect was dismissed as a "Canadian problem," a problem with the flu vaccine used in Canada.


Skowronski, who outlined the work at a webcast press conference, worked with 32 ferrets, giving half the 2008 seasonal flu shot and the rest a placebo injection. The work was blinded, meaning the researchers didn't know which ferrets received which shot. Later, all the ferrets were infected with the pandemic H1N1 virus.

The ferrets in the vaccine group became significantly sicker than the other animals, though all recovered.

A jab in the dark

Nigel Hawkes raises some interesting questions in relation to both the proposed nasal spray influenza vaccination for school children as well as the lack of transparency and accountability of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation. But there are some further issues he might like to look into.

For instance, the manufacturer's product information for Fluenz states [1]:

"FLUENZ should not be administered to children and adolescents with severe asthma or active wheezing because these individuals have not been adequately studied in clinical studies.

"Do not administer FLUENZ to infants and toddlers younger than 12 months. In a clinical study, an increase in hospitalisations was observed in infants and toddlers younger than 12 months after vaccination (see section 4.8).

"It is not recommended to administer FLUENZ to infants and toddlers 12-23 months of age. In a clinical study, an increased rate of wheezing was observed in infants and toddlers 12-23 months of age after vaccination (see section 4.8).

Physicians Oppose Mandatory Flu Vaccine for Health Workers

In letters to Colorado public health officials, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) opposes a rule requiring workers in health care facilities to have an annual influenza vaccination or lose their jobs. Workers who had a rare religious or medical exemption would be required to wear a mask in patient care areas from November through March.

The religious exemption is too narrowly drawn, AAPS writes, and should be a philosophical exemption, as accepted in many states, to “to avoid inquisitions into matters of faith.” The mask requirement “seems to be nothing more than a punitive retaliation against those who decline the vaccine” and should be dropped, the AAPS letter states, as both immunized and nonimmunized individuals can transmit influenza or other illnesses.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has become aware of recommendations made by the Finland National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) to discontinue vaccination with Pandemrix, an adjuvanted H1N1 influenza vaccine, while an investigation is conducted looking into the observed rise in cases of narcolepsy among children and adolescents, mainly in Sweden and Finland. This vaccine was developed specifically for pandemic 2009 H1N1 influenza (this past flu season). A different influenza vaccine will be used in Europe during the upcoming influenza season. Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological disorder caused by the brain’s inability to regulate sleep-wake cycles normally.

Pandemrix is not licensed for use in the United States. No adjuvanted influenza vaccines are licensed in the United States. The European Medicines Agency has launched a review of Pandemrix to investigate whether there is a link between cases of narcolepsy and vaccination with Pandemrix. This vaccine has been used in at least 30.8 million Europeans.

Risk of narcolepsy in children and young people receiving AS03 adjuvanted pandemic A/H1N1 2009 influenza vaccine: retrospective analysis

Glaxo’s Swine-Flu Shot Linked to Narcolepsy in U.K. Kids
GlaxoSmithKline Plc (GSK)’s Pandemrix swine-flu vaccine was associated with an increased risk of narcolepsy in U.K. children for the first time in a study that supports similar findings in Finland and Sweden. ...

Flu Truth Elsewhere Hidden by Media, U.S. Health Leaders
October 04, 2011
Let me start with the Big Lies. An organization called Families Fighting Flu has for months been running radio ads citing 1,200 U.S. children die from the flu each year, but even the CDC admits on its Fluview website less than 100 American kids (under age 16) died last flu season from "flu-associated" illness, with most already having severely compromised chronic health conditions (Yet, even 100 pediatric flu-associated pediatric deaths indicts U.S. flu protocols as next door Canada last year had but six pediatric flu-associated deaths, all associated with severe prior health conditions).

The second Big Lie run for over 15 years was the CDC publicizing 36,000 Americans died each year from the flu, but last Spring CDC finally admitted their annual flu-associated deaths were vastly overestimated so now it's down around an annual 3,000+ flu-associated deaths. Thus, CDC admits it has been off by a factor of twelve (12) for 15 years, yet mainstream media gives them a free pass and also ignores mortality is associated with flu, almost never a direct cause.

American's mass media and Health Leaders are currently, touting virtually everybody get flu shots, including 6-month old babies getting two doses, the first at 6 months, the second four weeks later. But, "down under" Australia and New Zealand are at the end of their flu season, with their populace very leery of taking flu shots ("jabs" in their parlance) after last year's mass-poisoning by the jabs to Aussie children. Their flu-associated morbidity/mortality numbers reveal (again) without equivocation the uselessness (and toxicity) of toxin-laden flu shots - and, as usual, are simply ignored by U.S. leaders sticking with their obsession of injecting toxins into human flesh.

... Equally damning are U.S. CDC and NIH Leaders' attitudes ignoring the vast health benefits of nutrition and adequate Vitamin D (depleted in the darkest Fall and Winter months) despite an abundance of studies that show virtually nobody with robust Vitamin D levels comes down with Winter flu and associated colds.

Mum's turmoil as flu jab gives son Alex (6) sleeping disease
September 14 2011
PLIGHT: Mairead battles to help other sufferers

A DUBLIN mum has spoken of her shock after her six-year-old son was stricken with a chronic sleep disorder after getting the flu vaccination.

Alex Lawless is one of at least 16 children here who have been treated for the disabling condition since receiving the Pandemrix jab.

Little Alex, from Rathgar, in Dublin was vaccinated early last year and now suffers from extreme drowsiness every three or four hours throughout the day.

His mother Mairead was pregnant during the swine flu outbreak in 2009 and was given the flu injection. She was also advised to have her family immunised.

After Alex was given the vaccine he started to sleep a lot during the day.

Vaccines for preventing influenza in healthy adults

Authors' conclusions: Influenza vaccines have a modest effect in reducing influenza symptoms and working days lost. There is no evidence that they affect complications, such as pneumonia, or transmission.

This review includes 15 out of 36 trials funded by industry (four had no funding declaration). An earlier systematic review of 274 influenza vaccine studies published up to 2007 found industry funded studies were published in more prestigious journals and cited more than other studies independently from methodological quality and size. Studies funded from public sources were significantly less likely to report conclusions favorable to the vaccines. The review showed that reliable evidence on influenza vaccines is thin but there is evidence of widespread manipulation of conclusions and spurious notoriety of the studies. The content and conclusions of this review should be interpreted in light of this finding.

More Excerpts:
Selective reporting
The harms dataset from randomised studies is small. The trial authors appear to regard harms as less important than effectiveness assessment. For example, in the trials by Beran et al (Beran 2009a; Beran 2009b) data collection on harms began at the receipt of the vaccine or placebo and continued until the end of the study. However, harms data were solicited from a subset of subjects and no mention of method used to select them and no justification for not collecting harms data from all participants were reported.

Other potential sources of bias
It is now known that industry funding of influenza vaccines stud- ies determines publication in high prestige journals and higher citation rates than other types of funding. In addition industry funding is associated with optimistic conclusions, but the quality of the majority of influenza vaccines studies is low, irrespective of funding. A previously cited review showed a complex web of interrelationships between these variables (Jefferson 2009a), but how this impacts on policy making is unknown.

Inactivated parenteral vaccines (Analysis 01)
Inactivated parenteral vaccines were 30% effective (95% CI 17% to 41%) against the symptoms of ILI if content matched WHO recommendations and circulating strain, but were not effective (RR 0.93, 95% CI 0.79 to 1.09) when these were unknown (Anal- ysis 1.1.2)

[Editors note: I believe that the 30% reduction of ILI under ideal circumstances is 30% of 20% annual ILI incidence (.3 x .2 = .06 which is 6%) AND constitutes a bias as studies typically do not include the approximately 6% ILI incidence which follows in the few days following an influenza vaccination. So even under ideal circumstances the value of the vaccine is zero or harmful.]
