It’s that time of year when Big Pharma and its legion of paid doctors push flu shots on the public. Just say no, or you might just die of “unexpected” complications.
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims its motto is “Saving Lives, Protecting People.” One of the biggest drums this organization beats is the promotion of vaccines. The CDC believes that the road to good health is paved with expensive injections. Lots of them.
Flu shots protect against “the three or four influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the season,” according to the CDC website. To ensure product diversity, some vaccines are recommended for infants, others for the elderly, and still others for those in between.
The CDC claims that “The risk of a flu shot causing serious harm or death is extremely small,” but admits that “serious problems” may arise, “such as severe allergic reactions.”
The CDC also maintains that “Almost all people who get influenza vaccine have no serious problems from it.” Common symptoms after getting a flu shot include soreness, redness, and tenderness or swelling at the injection site, plus low-grade fever, headache and muscle aches.
Although you can’t get the flu from a vaccination shot, the “mild side effects” (as the CDC calls them) are so flu-like that people mistake them for the flu itself.
But, if you have a sensitivity to the vaccine or any of its many additives, your immune system may be overwhelmed and overcome by the very inoculation the CDC says will “protect” you from a lethal strain of influenza.
Consider these three stories, pulled from a sea of other similar cases:
- In late 2012, Kaylynne Matten did not survive her flu shot.
“Nicole and Justin Matten of Barton have lived every parent’s worst nightmare. On December 2 their 7-year-old daughter, Kaylynne, visited her physician for an annual checkup. She got a flu shot. The next day, she developed a bad headache and fever. On December 6, the normally happy and healthy girl, who had no previous history of chronic health problems or adverse reactions to vaccines, turned blue, stopped breathing and died in her mother’s arms.”
Three hours of resuscitation failed to revive Kaylynne. The state medical examiner had not ruled on the exact cause of death. The young girl’s mother said, “We’re just waiting for an answer, but we believe in our hearts that it was the flu shot.”
Kaylynne’s memorial announcement said only that she “died suddenly on December 6, 2011, in Newport, after a short illness.”
- On November 21, 2018, José R. Peralta, formerly a New York State Senator, died at age 47 after complaining for two weeks that he was suffering from a mysterious illness. Peralta was not re-elected in the fall midterms and was slated to leave office at the end of the year.
Instead, according to Peralta’s director of communications Chris Sosa, “He just thought he was having symptoms related to getting the flu shot.”
The end came quickly for the first Dominican-American elected to the New York State Senate. Peralta began feeling disorientation that November Wednesday evening. He was “immediately taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center in Queens” where he died shortly afterward at 9:23 pm.
Peralta was survived by his wife Evelyn who met with officials from the New York Medical Examiner’s office. “All they said is that he was septic. And that led to organ failure,” she explained. Additional tests were needed to figure out what caused the septic shock that killed him.
“His body was poisoning himself,” Mrs. Peralta said, even though her husband “was a healthy guy.”
The New York Post pointed out that “Sepsis is often caused by the immune system overreacting to an infection; releasing chemicals into the blood that trigger widespread inflammation.”
- In mid-November 28, 2018, Las Vegas resident Shane Morgan was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Centennial Hills Hospital. Morgan lost all feeling in his arms and legs, could not see or walk before his wife Monique rushed him to the hospital.
“About 36-hours after he got the flu shot he started to get sick,” Mrs. Morgan revealed.
Morgan had a rare condition called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). GBS is an immune system disorder which attacks the nerve cells and can be lethal. Morgan’s symptoms were so severe that his doctors put him on a ventilator for a while.
Before the flu shot, the Las Vegas father was in perfect health. The Morgan family is sure that the flu shot is responsible for the sudden onset of GBS. From his hospital bed, Shane Morgan said:
“I never dreamed that any of this could ever happen.”
Fermin Leguen, the Chief Medical Officer of the Southern Nevada Health District, jumped to cover this medical gaffe, saying that flu shots do more good than harm:
“The benefit from the flu vaccine greatly overcomes any specific rare condition like this one that might happen.”
Monique Morgan said of her husband, “He’d take the flu ten to one,” as he interrupted her:
“I’d take the flu three times a season than to have to do this once in a lifetime.”
No one in the Morgan family will ever submit to a flu shot again.
The federally-funded CDC has loads of taxpayer money to pay doctors to push their pharmaceutical products onto the rest of us. They also reward doctors who make pro-vaccination public service announcements and give persuasive interviews to encourage reluctant patients to roll up their sleeves.
No less a person than Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams gave a press conference where he said:
“Those 80,000 people who died from flu last year? Guess what? They got it from someone. Someone gave them the flu.”
Dr. Adams then joshed, “I’m getting vaccinated, so hang with me because I might cry.” Not only is the nation’s top surgeon quite the comic but he is also all up in our business, so to speak:
“If you’re sick, stay home. Employers, tell your employees if they’re sick, stay home.”
That’s a pretty picture of public health, but most people have to go to work or risk losing their jobs. They also need to get paid in order to support their families.
Dr. William Schaffner is the Medical Director for the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases. He admits that flu shots don’t work all that well but we should get them anyway to reduce the severity of the disease:
“Even if you get flu after having received the vaccine…you are likely to benefit by having a less severe illness.”
The latest flu season was epic, killing 80,000 people and hospitalizing another 900,000 – almost a million patients. In previous years, deaths amounted to no more than 56,000 victims with up to 700,000 cases serious enough to warrant a trip to the hospital.
The fact is that drug legislators and manufacturers are getting rich from flu shots. The CDC itself reported that “manufacturers are distributing more flu vaccine in the U.S. than ever: a projected 171 million to 179 million doses this year.” Industry researcher IMS Health translated those millions of units sold into U.S. revenues totaling $1.61 BILLION (with a ‘B’).
All those billions of dollars spent on drugs that are only effective 50 to 60 percent of the time!
Don’t let your doctor, your boss, your friends, or your family guilt-trip or talk you into getting a flu shot if you don’t want one. Just say no.
