As the prestigious Cochrane Review explains, “Over 200 viruses cause influenza and influenza-like illness which produce the same symptoms (fever, headache, aches and pains, cough and runny noses). Without laboratory tests, doctors cannot tell the two illnesses apart. Both last for days and rarely lead to death or serious illness. At best, vaccines might be effective against only influenza A and B, which represent about 10% of all circulating viruses.’
Further, ‘Children and the elderly are the two age groups that appear to have the most complications following an influenza infection. In children under the age of two, the efficacy of inactivated vaccine was similar to placebo. Very little info’ found on safety of inactivated vaccines in young children.‘

Fluzone High-Dose package insert – manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur (approved for use in persons 65 years of age and older): ‘Nine percent of Fluzone recipients and 49% of Fluzone Intradermal recipients had an injection-site reaction present beyond Day 3 post-vaccination. Approximately 20% of subjects in both groups had a solicited systemic adverse event present beyond Day 3 post-vaccination.
Within 6 months post-vaccination, 156 (6.1%) Fluzone High-Dose recipients and 93 (7.4%) Fluzone recipients experienced a serious adverse event. No deaths were reported within 28 days post-vaccination. A total of 23 deaths were reported during the period Day 29-180 post-vaccination: 16 (0.6%) among Fluzone High-Dose recipients and 7 (0.6%) among Fluzone recipients. The majority of these participants had a medical history of cardiac, hepatic, neoplastic, renal, and/or respiratory diseases.…Safety and effectiveness of Fluzone High-Dose in persons <65 years of age have not been established.‘
Four Observational Studies from Canada, released in 2010, also determined that ‘prior receipt of 2008–09 TIV (trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine aka regular flu shot) was associated with increased risk of medically attended pH1N1 illness during spring–summer 2009’…‘people vaccinated against seasonal flu are twice as likely to catch swine flu.’
World renowned former brain surgeon, Dr. Russell Blaylock, explains the nature of this disruption to body’s immunological capacity & overall functionality, typically attributed to all vaccine uptake:
‘The flu virus causes immune cells to produce cytokine molecules that increase inflammation. Normally this is controlled, but in extreme cases, a “cytokine storm” occurs. This can cause tissue and organ damage, and even death. When you’re fighting the flu, you feel bad not because of the virus but rather because of the “cytokine storm.” All vaccines trigger their own cytokine storms. And researchers now know that increased inflammation is at the heart of most illness and disease. Which means the vaccines themselves are hazardous to your health. The solution is to avoid flu shots, and if you’ve had them in the past, to take nutrients that will strengthen your immune system and reduce inflammatory cytokine activity.‘
