Flu Vaccine Fact Advertisement
Again its time to consider being injected with rotten eggs in the illusive search for a flu free Winter. If you have not already decided to avoid the flu shot like the plague, then you may be interested in the following:
In 1997 the Associated Press stated that about 70 percent of doctors and nurses do NOT get annual flu shots.
The Maine (US) Lung Association says, for the USA, “Over the past twenty years, age specific death rates for pneumonia and influenza have increased in the older adult populations [over age 65]…”
However, since 1980, death rates in the over 65 age group from influenza have been increasing, while flu vaccination rates since 1987 also increased from 33% to 65%. These figures show that vaccination is the wrong approach for achieving improved health or reducing the number of deaths.
In fact, studies of large scale compulsory flu vaccination in Japanese school-aged children showed the vaccine to be ineffective and conducive to law suits due to adverse side effects.
