A recently released report by Trust for America's Health shows that only just over one-third of American adults between the ages of 18 and 64 received the flu shot during the 2012-2013 flu season. Statistics show for the same season that 56.6 percent of children aged 6 months to 17 years received the flu shot, and 66.2 percent of seniors 65 and older also received flu vaccinations. Last season, the most vaccines were administered in Massachusetts, with a 57.5 percent vaccination rate, compared with just 34.1 percent in Florida. Only 12 states showed vaccination rates higher than 50 percent: Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Carolina, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Tennessee.
The mainstream media has been relentless in their attempts to scare Americans who have utilized their right to opt out and skip the flu shot. However, the flu propaganda failed to work on 35.7 percent of young adults last season.
What your doctor isn't telling you
Dr. Susan Rehm, medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases, claimed that this year's primary disease-causing strain is H1N1 and can easily take the life of young people.
Dr. Luis Ostrosky, the medical director of epidemiology at a Houston-area hospital said, "The groups at risk for complications from influenza historically have been ... the very young and very old, but for H1N1 - even in 2009 - we saw it really affecting young adults, for reasons we don't really know yet."
Mike Adams recently pointed out in his report entitled "Scientist exposes flu shots lies and doom-and-gloom media propaganda" how doctors repeatedly warn of the risks associated with catching the flu but almost never discuss the dangerous and sometimes deadly risks connected with the vaccine.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) website lists the harmful ingredients, which include formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate (MSG), aluminum, egg proteins, thimerosal (a methylmercury compound) and antibiotics (which fuel the development of superbugs).
Many studies have proven that the flu shot can wreak horrible havoc on humans, causing serious health problems such as miscarriages, narcolepsy, immunosuppression, Alzheimer's disease, neurological disorders, anaphylactic shock and even death.
In 2009, outrage was sparked after the insert for the H1N1 vaccine manufactured by Novartis became public and listed side effects such as Guillain-Barre syndrome, vasculitis, anaphylactic shock and, again, death. The insert also admitted to a plethora of other nasty side effects like hot flashes, vomiting, nervous system disorders, cardiovascular disorders and so forth. (Click here for the lengthy list of side effects).
Just one year later, the World Health Organization (WHO) recorded a possible link between the monovalent H1N1 vaccine called Pandemrix and the development of narcolepsy in 12 countries. Narcolepsy is a chronic nervous system disorder that causes people to uncontrollably fall asleep. Finland, one of the countries involved, openly acknowledged the link between the two and promised to pay for a "lifetime of medical care" for the 79 children who were affected. Also, even more shockingly, 76 of the 79 children affected also developed hallucinations and "paralyzing physical collapses." The CDC admits to the link but claims Pandemrix, which was produced in Europe, wasn't licensed for use in the US.
The CDC claims that the flu is widespread in 35 states this year but particularly high in the following 13 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.
While getting the flu is never fun, suffering from a lifelong debilitating condition, or even worse, death, is far more to be feared. If you do end up becoming a victim of the flu shot, or any other vaccine gone wrong, due to a 1986 law passed by Congress, the pharmaceutical company maintains no liability whatsoever. Victims of harmful vaccines are sent to a separate court referred to as the "vaccine court," where the families of victims lose power and Big Pharma remains protected.
