Are you still thinking about getting the flu vaccine?  Here are a few thoughts to ponder…

Read the package insert from FLULAVAL (flu vaccine) under indications and usage.  It states “this indication is based on immune response elicited by FLULAVAL, and there have been no controlled trials demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with FLULAVAL.”

Also, under dosage:  “thimerosal, a mercury derivative, is added as a preservative.  Each 0.5 ml dose contains 25 mg mercury.”  The government agreed to ban thimerosal from vaccines several years ago, so why is it continuing to use this neurologic, lung and kidney toxic material?  20 years ago, the maximum allowable mercury from a lifetime of vaccines was deemed to be no more than 4 mg.  Now the average child gets over 200 mg!

Furthermore, The CDC has implemented mass vaccinations of children under the age of 5 since 2003.  Death rates from the flu (by year):  1999 — 29 deaths, 2000– 19 deaths, 2001 — 13 deaths, 2002 — 12 deaths, 2003 — 90 deaths, 2006 — 78 deaths, 2007 — 88 deaths, 2008 — 116 deaths.

The H1N1 vaccine was tested for safety for one week, not months.  Adjuvants are added to vaccines to enhance the effects of the vaccine, and the testing was done without adjuvants.  These agents have been associated with autoimmune disease, and the Gulf war syndrome, in immunized veterans from that war.

Show me the long term studies that show that this year’s flu vaccine is safe for pregnant women.

Interesting Vaccination Article: Here is an interesting view on the original source of most vaccines. Many vaccines  are grown on human fetal tissue. If you have not signed up for Dr. Mercola’s free newsletter, I would recommend it.  His articles are well referenced, and thought provoking.
