Strong Flu Season Boosts Vaccine Profits, Despite Flu Vaccine having Shockingly Low Effectiveness Rate in US and Europe

Flu Season

Story at-a-glance -

  • Three recent studies severely challenge the claim that the flu vaccine will protect you against the flu. A multicenter study by researchers in eight European countries indicated that overall vaccine effectiveness against influenza A/H3N2 in the first months of the flu season was 38%, but after mid-February it dropped to -1%
  • According to the CDC, this year’s flu vaccine is only 9 percent effective against this season’s type A (H3N2) influenza strain in people 65 and older. Across all age groups reviewed by the CDC, the flu vaccine's effectiveness was found to be 56 percent
  • Many flu shot recipients are coming down with flu despite having been vaccinated—a strong indication that flu vaccines are ineffective despite the fact that the vaccines available this year are a good match to the actual flu strains in circulation!
  • The 2009-2010 flu vaccine, licensed for distribution in Europe, caused some 800+ cases of narcolepsy in Sweden and other European countries. According to a retroactive analysis recently published in the British Medical Journal, the H1N1 swine flu vaccine, Pandemrix, induced narcolepsy and resulted in a 10-fold increased risk of the sleep disorder
  • You can prevent the flu and other flu-like diseases using dietary interventions, making sure your vitamin D and gut flora are optimized, being more meticulous about washing your hands, getting enough exercise and sleep, and taking natural immune boosters like oil of oregano and garlic
