When medical doctors begin warning about the uselessness of certain vaccines, it becomes clear that the vaccine was never proven effective in clinical trials to begin with. If the vaccines in question were never proven effective before being rushed to market, then wouldn’t that mean these products are just live experiments on the population?
If the effectiveness of the vaccine is practically nonexistent, and the scientific process abandoned, how can people trust that it is even safe for them?
FluMist, the only flu vaccine that is taken orally, is essentially a con, offering no real protection from real world flu viruses. Even the governing body over vaccine supply, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), declined to recommend FluMist in June 2015, after it became clear that the product had only proven to be 3 percent effective over the previous three years.
Now in 2016, the ACIP is saying the same thing: FluMist is practically useless. Clinics are no longer ordering it, and distribution companies aren’t even offering it to pharmacies. The consensus among pediatricians is for kids to skip FluMist, even though it is much easier to administer than actual flu shots.
Now that the CDC has warned that the past years’ flu shots are less than 50 percent effective for predicting the circulating strains, many people are opting out.
“We need to recognize that the influenza virus is totally unpredictable,” admits Dr. Henry Bernstein of Cohen’s Children’s Medical Center in New Hyde Park, New York.”There are multiple influenza virus strains.”
“We don’t know which ones are going to predominate from one season to next. We don’t know which ones are going to be more common in certain communities.”
Even so, flu shots are still widely recommended. They are so highly recommended in fact, that doctors even push pregnant women to take them, without any safety studies to back up that this practice is safe for the developing fetus.
AstraZeneca, the maker of FluMist, denies the claim that FluMist is ineffective; they even cited a Canadian study to prove that the drug is as effective as a flu shot (which still gives the product no merit at all).
AstraZeneca cannot be trusted to provide good medicine anyway. After all, they are the developers of Nexium, which has faced numerous lawsuits from hundreds of victims who now have chronic kidney disease, renal failure and kidney failure thanks to the drug.
