Attention, this comment was added on 11/5/2018: For clarification, I wish for those reading this article to also review this video and blog. The injectable flu vaccine DOES NOT SHED!, in the sense that the vaccinated person spreads the virus from the vaccine. The live virus vaccine can shed, though this article does not discuss that topic. Those vaccinated, when infected with the flu, SHED/SPREAD more of the naturally acquired infection. I hope this helps. View this blog/video for more clarification.
Want to know why more people are sick this year and dying from the flu? The answer might surprise you, it’s because of the flu vaccine and the most recent research from the National Academy of Sciences proves that people who are vaccinated spread the virus more, are not protected, and prior vaccination is harming people’s immunity!
Does the flu vaccine protect you or those around you? Well according to the research, the opposite would be true. The findings of the study found that those individuals who had received the flu vaccine were “shedding” 6.3 times more virus than the unvaccinated!
Straight from the research:
“Self-reported vaccination for the current season was associated with a trend (P < 0.10) toward higher viral shedding in fine aerosol samples; vaccination with both the current and previous year’s seasonal vaccines, however, was significantly associated with greater fine-aerosol shedding in unadjusted and adjusted models (P < 0.01). In adjusted models, we observed 6.3 (95% CI 1.9–21.5) times more aerosol shedding among cases with vaccination in the current and previous season compared with having no vaccination in those two seasons.”
“The association of current and prior year vaccination with increased shedding of influenza A might lead one to speculate that certain types of prior immunity promote lung inflammation, airway closure, and aerosol generation. This first observation of the phenomenon needs confirmation. If confirmed, this observation, together with recent literature suggesting reduced protection with annual vaccination, would have implications for influenza vaccination recommendations and policies.”
Let me break it down in plain language.
Higher viral shedding means that those who were vaccinated were breathing out more influenza virus and would be spreading it more than the unvaccinated. So when doctors, health departments, or health “authorities” like the CDC push the vaccine by saying things like “the vaccine protects you and those around you,” “everyone needs the vaccine because of ‘herd’ immunity,” or “you have to get the vaccine so you protect the very young, the elderly and the very weak/cancer patients etc.,” they would actually be lying.
6.3 times more aerosol shedding means that those who were vaccinated were spreading more virus into the air around them just by breathing when compared to those who had not received the vaccine that same year and/or the flu vaccine from the previous year. The implications of this finding now show that those who are vaccinated pose a greater risk to the immune compromised, i.e. cancer patients, the elderly and the very young and that the unvaccinated spread the disease less and protect others better! In essence, the vaccine does the exact opposite of what people have been told and explains why we are seeing more and more people get sick earlier each year and more people die from the flu.
Reduced protection with annual vaccination, means that the flu vaccine weakens a person immunity against infectious illness. This fact has been shown in multiple studies on children and confirmed with animal studies. One such study deserving of “honorable mention” is this study: Effectiveness of trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine in influenza-related hospitalization in children: A case-control study which found that children receiving the annual flu vaccine had a “threefold increased risk of hospitalization.”
“Prior immunity” promotes lung inflammation… Now I wanted to explain this part so that people wouldn’t be misled. Immunity and vaccination are not synonymous, in fact, this study provides the very evidence to prove that vaccinations like the influenza vaccine don’t provide immunity, hence the vaccinated being infected and spread it more. The correct wording should have read that “prior VACCINATIONS promote lung inflammation” as this fact has been shown in animal studies. This means that when you receive a flu vaccine, elucidated by this study and animal studies, the lungs are damaged. Hence the scientific term/phrase “vaccine-associated enhanced respiratory disease” which in animal studies has shown that flu vaccinations damage lung tissue of the vaccinated and distort or weaken the natural immunity of the host, person or animal. Could this be just one more reason more people are developing severe lung diseases like COPD or why the rates of asthma in America are increasing in the vaccinated?
The short and simple: The research shows…
- The vaccine doesn’t protect one from infection.
- That the vaccinated are “shedding”/spreading more virus simply by breathing.
- That prior vaccination has weakened the immune systems of those who got the shot.
- Individuals who receive the flu vaccine are placing others around them at greater risk than the unvaccinated.
