A 5-Year-Old Girl Just Died of the Very Strain of Flu She Was Vaccinated Against

| |


Cue the pro-vaccine crowd’s b.s. arguments as to why this is doesn’t matter and we should all keep taking the risk shooting up our children in the hopes this won’t happen to us.

Via Daily Mail:

A five-year-old girl has died in hospital three days after developing a strain of the flu that she was vaccinated against – as a deadly outbreak of the virus continues to sweep across the country.

Keira Driscoll was prescribed steroids and a nebulizer at a Quick Care clinic after she started feeling unwell with a cough and a fever at her home in Clark County, Las Vegas, last Sunday.

But just hours later, she collapsed. Her mother, Tiffany Driscoll, frantically performed CPR on her small body, before she was rushed to hospital. There, she was found to have influenza A.

Despite medics’ best efforts, Keira could not be resuscitated and she was placed on life support. On Tuesday, her parents made the heartbreaking decision to turn off the machine the next day.

The vaccine… didn’t magically save her. Why? Because vaccines are not magical saviors (despite what Big Pharma and its biggest customer, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, would have people believe).

The CDC just got done admitting last week that more than 3/4ths of the people who take the shot this year are going to get the flu anyway but the agency stupidly continues to tell people to get the shot they admit probably won’t protect them from diddly squat!

Why? Someone has money to make, obviously.

That’s after the CDC admitted this year’s flu vaccine is the wrong strain. They’re saying it’s maybe 23% effective. Not very good odds, and yet again, like we live in crazy land, they’re still telling people to get the shot anyway even though they know it’s ineffective.

The seasonal flu isn’t supposed to be “deadly” anyway, just by the way. The reason so many things like the flu or even measles are deadly these days is because so many people are nutritionally deficient. Maybe if our food wasn’t junk, and our water and air weren’t poisoned, we’d be hearing a lot less of these stories in the first place.

The fact of the matter is, even the studies that have come out to compare vaccinated with unvaccinated people have shown that the flu vaccine is not nearly as effective in people who have received previous flu vaccines! This study, published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases, looked at 7,315 enrollments during eight seasons and ultimately found:

Vaccine-induced protection was greatest for individuals not vaccinated during the prior 5 years.

Wait… WHAT?

Here are the details:

In the analysis using 5 years of historical vaccination data, current season vaccine effectiveness (VE) against H3N2 was significantly higher among vaccinated individuals with no prior vaccination history (65%; 95% confidence interval [CI], 36%–80%) compared with vaccinated individuals with a frequent vaccination history (24%; 95% CI, 3%–41%; P = .01). VE against B was 75% (95% CI, 50%–87%) and 48% (95% CI, 29%–62%), respectively (P = .05). Similar findings were observed when analysis was restricted to adults 18–49 years.

Let’s just take that first number against H3N2. Sixty-five percent? That’s the general rate of vaccine effectiveness? Well WOO HOO. What about the other 35%???

Sixty-five percent isn’t even that high anyway considering these people are taking a shot filled with chemicals and heavy metals that bypasses their natural immune systems and all the risks that go along with that. But that 65% protection is for unvaccinated people.

Check out the protection for the good little citizens who take their government-recommended flu cocktail every year: 24%.


Even against flu strain B, those same vaccinated people only get 48% protection.

How well does that bode for people running around like chickens with their heads cut off shrieking, “Don’t forget to get your flu vaccine every year or you’ll die THE SKY IS FALLING THE SKY IS FALLING AHHHHHH!!!”

Think about if you bought anything and it only worked 24% or 48% of the time…? Wouldn’t you throw that piece of crap in the garbage or return it to the store for a refund? Or would you just dutifully keep buying pieces of crap that suck?

Well, too late with a vaccine; you already shot yourself up with heavy metals, antibiotics, genetically modified viruses, preservatives like formaldehyde and emulsifiers like polysorbate 80 — which has been linked to gastrointestinal problems, heart attacks, strokes, impaired immunity and tumor growth for starters — and which studies have shown helps all the other chemicals in said shot more easily bypass your blood brain barrier and permeate your gut.

In fact, this whole situation has caused a flu vaccine “paradox”:

Pharmaceutical companies and the larger medical community absolutely don’t want studies conducted that compare the health of unvaccinated individuals to those who get regular vaccines – even when they find a troubling “paradox.” Yet, this story showing the results of seasonal flu vaccines can already show a link to unintended consequences. They say since building more sensitive immune testing equipment, that they haven’t seen increase in (seasonal?) flu illnesses among vaccine recipients versus unvaccinated individuals. They are dubbing it a “blunted protection to seasonal flu.” From CBC:

But researchers in several countries have found a blunting or “interference” effect between previous seasonal vaccines and reduced levels of vaccine protection in later years for some strains.

What?? If vaccines are supposed to “immunize” or give the immune system a boost, and the CDC in the U.S. is telling everyone to go ahead and get ineffective flu vaccines for added protection – then how can past vaccines run “interference” and knock out the effects of future vaccines? This attempt at damage control doesn’t make any sense…. [emphasis added]

No, it doesn’t make any sense. It never did. It never will.

Even though this little girl died from the very strain of flu the people who sold her parents the vaccination promised it would protect their baby from, the establishment media is pathetically still trying to twist this in a pro-vaccaination agenda light, calling this year’s flu season a “deadly epidemic” and scaremongering just like they always do every single year per the script.

You know how many kids have died of the flu (children who likely already had compromised immune systems and other health issues to begin with) this year? Fifty-six.

You want to know what a real “deadly epidemic” is?

Try 100,000 people dying EVERY YEAR after taking pharmaceutical drugs AS PRESCRIBED. (That doesn’t even begin to count the thousands who die from abusing their prescriptions or we’d be here all day.)

Every time someone dies it’s sad, especially when a child passes away who was just starting to live her life, but ask yourself, “Which of these things is a real deadly epidemic?” (Hint: It’s not the flu.)

But hey, go get your vaccines because the government, which was forced to admit the vaccines don’t even work this year, said so.

    I’d bet she would still be alive had she not gotten a vaccine.

  • Anonymous1

    She may have been vaccinated against the flu three days before she came down with it but they do claim that it takes up to two weeks to become fully immunized. So she could have just been unlucky enough to have become infected anyway.

    • Guest

      Or, since the vaccine this year was some in the 20-30% effectiveness range this year, she got a ‘double hit’ (the best way to describe it) of the flu from the seasonal and the vaccine.

    • Undecider

      Read the insert of the flu vaccine (or any vaccine). There nothing indicated which guarantees any kind of immunity. The only thing which is a success is them getting away with pumping toxic compounds into the blood stream.

  • Mary

    Those who have gotten the vaccine and then come down with the flu are getting a double dose of flu, a more potent bacteria. Plus, doctors will not prescribe antibiotics for children (however, if you are an adult you will get them)
    and therefore the bacteria enters the bloodstream quickly.

    • dawn

      Flu is caused by a virus NOT bacteria but I do agree that the flu shot likely made her more vulnerable to flu rather than protecting her. And young children were encouraged to get flu mist which contains live virus and in fact could have infected her and others around her for up to 28 days.

    You know what stopped being an ‘epidemic’ in the year 2000? The measles. It was completely eradicated. You want to know what is back because of anti-vaccine people like you and your poorly written article? You guessed it; the measles. You know what kills more children per year than flu vaccines? The flu. The flu kills between 250,000 – 500,000 per year. In case your math is off, that is between 225,000 and 450,000 more deaths than the vaccine may negatively affect (which is, by the way, between a low 3,000 and 49,000 a year for flu vaccine deaths).
    I expect you don’t go anywhere in your car with a child, right? Considering car crashes kill almost as many people per year in America alone as flu vaccines. 43,000 fatal car crashes in the US alone per year with 2.9 million people per year injured. So, make sure none of you anti-vaccine parents are taking your children out in a vehicle as there is almost the same chance of getting into a fatal car crash as a child dying of a life-saving vaccine.
    Stop using propaganda and fear tactics to further your anti-vaccine agenda because it is easily picked apart and made to show how ridiculous it truly is.

    I dont even know where even begin to address of this…but I’ll try.

    The flu vaccine this year covers roughly 25% of the circulating strains. this does not mean that 75% of people who get the vaccine will get the flu, it just means their immune system isn’t trained to combat 75% of the circulating flu strains.

    The flu isn’t deadly? Really? 30,000 Americans die every year due to complications of the flu. At what point do anti-vaccers classify something as deadly?

    This poor child was vaccinated. Sometimes vaccines don’t take. That’s a reality of life. She would have gotten the flu whether she was vaccinated or not because we don’t have herd immunity because people don’t get their vaccinations. A childhood friend of mine just had to say goodbye to her 53 year old mother. She got the flu last year and suffered complications. Her kidneys failed and she was on daily dialysis while waiting for a new kidney. She suffered a heart attack due to misregulated potassium levels. Her cause of death was not listed ad the flu but had she not gotten the flu, none of this would have happened. The flu is deadly.

    The point of vaccinations is first to protect yourself but if that isn’t enough for you, you getting vaccinated protects those who cannot be vaccinated. My grandfather is undergoing chemo. He can’t get vaccinated. At 85 and with a weakend immune system from chemo, if he gets the flu, he will likely suffer complications and he could die. Even if I am only protecting myself against 25% of the circulating strains, that’s a 25% decrease in the number of strains that I can pass onto those who cannot get vaccinated.

    This isn’t just about you, its about the low percentage of people who cannot get vaccinated due to a medical condition or an allergic reaction to something in the vaccine. It’s about those people who’s immune system doesn’t respond properly to the vaccine and aren’t protected despite getting vaccinated. Herd immunity protects them IF and only if everyone who can get vaccinated does.

    Btw- VAERS is a self reporting system. If I got vaccinated and then accidently sprained by ankle, I could legitimately report that I experienced severe joint pain after receiving the vaccination. I have a genetic history of autoimmune conditions (autoimmune diabetes, crohns, celiac disease, autoimmune hypothyroidism, colitis etc). If I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder shortly after receiving a vaccination, I could legitimately report that to VAERS, despite the fact that it is more than likely that the multiple generations of autoimmune problems that is in my DNA happened to go wrong at that point. Just because someone claims something doesn’t mean it’s true. Yes some people react poorly to vaccinations but guess what, some people react badly to things like the the sun (sun poisoning, autoimmune reactions to sunlight, yes that’s a thing) and does that stop the general population from going into the sun? No. We keep doing it because we are not the small percentage who react. Vaccines are similar, some people react, a majority don’t.

    • disqus_3BrONUAJno

      How could it cover 25% of thousands of strains?

      • Samantha Kelly

        Not every strain of flu goes around every year, have you heard about swine flu this year? No, because it isn’t circulating. The CDC has to make a choice based on the beginning of the flu season in Australia on which strains to make our flu vaccine against. This year, they picked the wrong ones, 2 of the circulating strains aren’t protected against and then a 3rd strain that the vaccine does protect against mutated after the vaccine was under development. We can’t possibly make a vaccine against the thousands of strains, that’s why you are supposed to get it every year, to keep yourself protected against the strains that are circulating that year.

        • disqus_3BrONUAJno

          If one merely makes certain that they are getting enough vitamin D3 (which isn’t really a vitamin, according to recent discoveries), one’s immune system will be made capable of fighting off virtually every infection. This is not to say that one only need take D3, because if one is nutritionally deficient in any essential nutrient, because they operate synergistically, one may as well be deficient in all of them, as most of us are.
          One of the reasons why winter is such a dangerous season for viruses is because it is the season where most people get the least sunlight, and D3 is made naturally by the body using sunlight.

      First off: only around 1000 people die in the US from the flu (CDC), but the death count from pnuemonia is lumped in with it which is where the 30,000 number comes from.

      Vaccines are not “proven to work”; they are only “proven” to create anti-bodies which isn’t proof of immunity. Science STILL does not understand completely how our immune system functions. For instance, it’s fairly new news that 70% of our immune system is in our bowels. How compromised is that after the antibiotic prescription frenzy of the last 4 decades? And even in the case of antibodies, vaccine companies have been caught falsifying results in that regard as well.

      Quite frankly, even IF vaccines worked as claimed, if you can’t trust the goods manufactured by those people (GSK comes to mind) then why would you take them?

      • Samantha Kelly

        Pneumonia is a potential complication of the flu. Pneumonia is a complication of whooping cough as well. The flu is directly causing the pneumonia so it makes sense that the deaths from pneumonia are counted. My friend’s mother died a year after getting the flu. Her kidneys shut down and her potassium was out of hand which lead to her heart stopping. Since it was so far removed from her recovering from the flu, they didn’t count her in the stats. If you got shot and then developed an infection in the wound that you died from while in the hospital, you would be counted in the gun shot deaths? Possibly, because had you not gotten shot, there would have been no death.

        Do you know what nurses have to do if they don’t want to be revaccinated for something? They get a blood test to test titers of antibodies. The test looks at the level of antibodies present in the blood and determines if it is high enough to confer immunity. All that drinking breast milk does is pass antibodies and I’m fairly certain that is a big staple of the anti-vaccine movement. If all you’re passing is antibodies and that protects your kid, then generating antibodies via vaccine also protects your kid. I don’t see where you were going with that.

        Science is always changing, we never admit to knowing it all because we can’t. What we do know is that vaccines confer protection against diseases that, when they infect the young, the old and the immuno suppressed, lead to devastating consequences. An estimated 70% of cancer patients will develop severe consequences if they catch the measles. Babies too young to be vaccinated die from whooping cough because their mother hasn’t ever had it herself and the antibodies drop off after 5 or so years, meaning breast milk does nothing to protect them. People like them rely on herd immunity to protect them and with such a large portion of our doctor deciding to play doctor at home and refusing the advice of a trained medical professional, a lot of places don’t have the percentage needed to confer that herd immunity.

        As far as the intestinal bacteria go you’d be surprised. They’ve shown that a lot of the beneficial bacteria in your gut are antibiotic resistant due to the selective pressure we’ve put them under by prescribing antibiotics for everything. Yeah some are killed off but they get replaced by things like yogurt or any other fermented food or even their ab resistant neighbors. I will agree that antibiotics are over prescribed, but they do save lives when used properly.

        I trust the vaccine manufacturers much more than I trust most supplement makers. I don’t know if you’re and anti-vaxer who takes supplements to boost your immune system but I’ll address it anyways. They’ve pulled bottles of supplements off the shelves and tested them and a lot of them don’t have as much active ingredient as listed or they have a lot more which could be dangerous to some. The claims on bottles aren’t regulated by any federal agency, they can say whatever they want to get you to pick up the bottle and purchase it.

        I don’t know how old you are but I saw a breakdown by age of whether vaccines should be mandatory or not. The people who lived through the mass outbreaks of these illnesses had a huge percentage who agreed that everyone should be required to vaccinate. Its not until you hit the age ranges who have never seen an outbreak where thousands get one of these communicable diseases that you have a large percentage of people disagreeing. Please, if you won’t vaccinate to protect yourself, vaccinate to protect those who can’t be vaccinated due to age or illness or allergy to the vaccine. Please.

          I’m 60 now and I grew up when there was 8 vaccines between birth and 18 years of age. Based upon you people, with 30+ vaccines before 24 mths and 68 total by 18 years, none of us should be alive. When Japan ceased to slavishly follow US schedules back in 1974 (no vaccines before 24 months) the SIDS rate dropped by 50%. It takes until the age of 7 for your immune system to be fully functional; explain the importance of giving a vaccine for HepC (sexually or needle transmitted disease) to infants carte blanc instead of JUST to ones whose mothers are tested positive? Explain how you can “stimulate” an immune system that isn’t as yet functional.

          You trust vaccine manufacturers more than supplement manufacturers? Thank you for showing your uninformed bias; when various agencies began to keep track of deaths by cause they found that supplements (vitamins, minerals & essential oils) were responsible for 10.5 deaths per year. Scary. All of those varied and multitudinous supplements. To put that in perspective, FDA approved Tylenol kills 150 per year. FDA approved drugs result in over 100,000 preventable deaths per year, a fact left out of your little monologe. Maybe if you actually investigated “vaccine” producers (ie GSK, Bayer, J & J) you wouldn’t make such a blanket statement.

          You’re in the same position as the Church’s witnesses were against Galileo; yelling “everybody knows” statements without ever picking up a telescope themselves.

          • Samantha Kelly

            Your brain isn’t fully developed until you’re in your 20s. Based on your logic, that means that we shouldn’t bother trying to stimulate the brain by learning until it’s fully developed. Why are we sending kids to pre-school at 3 or 4 when their brain isn’t fully developed?

            I’m in my mid 20’s. I had 5 polio vaccines, 7 DPT/DTap/TDaP, 4 Hib, 2 MMR, 2 varicella, 3 HepB, 1 Meningitis, and 3 HPVs. I was vaccinated on the full CDC vaccination schedule. That’s 26 vaccinations by 18, not 68. Where did you get that 68 number from? The point of vaccinations is not only to protect yourself from an otherwise preventable disease but to prevent complications of said diseases. FDR didn’t die of polio, he was only permanently disabled because of it. The chances of a complication due to a vaccine preventable illness is higher than the chances of a complication due to a vaccination. Just because no one in the US has died from the measles in the past decade doesn’t mean no one has had their entire life affected by a disability that stemmed from it.

            We don’t know what causes SIDS, if we did, we would be able to prevent it. If vaccinations had been proven to cause SIDS, then something would have been done by now.

            We don’t vaccinate for HepC, we vaccinate for HepB. Parents can carry HepB and not know it and unknowingly pass it onto their children via bodily fluids.

            You know why supplements don’t kill people? Because they don’t do anything, they are snake oil. When you have a drug that actually produces a positive result (acetaminophen, etc), you’re going to have side effects. Just like with vaccinations, a small percentage of people are going to have an adverse reaction. My fiance can’t take NSAIDs, if he does, he gets a debilitating headache the next day. He knows this and doesn’t take them. That doesn’t stop me from taking them because I know that I don’t get that side effect. Deaths from FDA approved drugs also do include those who intentionally overdose or those who take too much because they don’t follow the dosing instructions. You can take all the vitamin C you want, any that you don’t absorb will just be excreted through your urine. We aren’t all the same, we don’t all have the same body chemistry. If you take something to change the way your body is functioning (NSAIDS to decrease temperature or inflammation, antacids to decrease acid production, diet pills to increase metabolism, vaccines to generate an immune response etc), chances are that someone whose body chemistry is different is going to react badly. It sucks but that’s life. People have allergies to foods, should we all avoid peanuts because a percentage of the population experiences negative reactions to peanuts? Or tree nuts? Or soy? Or wheat? That’s the argument being made by anti-vaxers like you, that because a small percentage of people react to vaccines that are otherwise beneficial, they aren’t going to use them.

            I have a bachelors and masters in Biology, studying towards a PhD. You really think I’ve never picked up the metaphorical telescope? Have you ever taken a college or graduate level course in Immunology? If all of your sources come from internet blogs and self published books promoting more of their own products, I can’t really take your arguments seriously.

            In reality, childhood infections such as measles, whooping cough, chicken pox etc, are not caused by germs, but by the toxic conditions
            of the body, a condition known as Toxaemia. Famous American physician, Dr Henry Bieler, author of ‘Food is Your Best Medicine’ writes, “The primary cause of disease is not germs. Disease is caused by a toxaemia which results in cellular impairment and breakdown, thus paving the way for the multiplication and onslaught of germs”.

            The causes of toxaemia are numerous. In third world countries the causes are related primarily to malnourishment, impure water, poor sanitation, poverty and overcrowding. In the developed countries like USA, Australia, England etc the causes are more related to over consumption of animal, dairy and refined processed foods, particularly cereals and grains, chemical additives in food and
            water, drugs, vaccines, pesticide residues and industrial poisons. Other causes can include poor parental health, traumatic childbirth,
            impoverished or polluted breastmilk, too early introduction of solid
            foods, spinal misalignment, muscular spasm, and nutritional deficiency.

            This, in a nutshell, explains why vaccines are ineffective. Vaccines fail to address the root causes of disease and do nothing to remove the toxic conditions of the body out of which infection arises. Instead, vaccines are aimed at stimulating our immune system to fight off germs when in reality the germs are just feeding on the body’s internal toxaemia which is their true biological role, a role that Biology refers to as mutualistic symbiosis .

            “…these organisms (germs) live, multiply and thrive only in tissue encumbered with toxic matter from injudicious eating, poisons from stagnant bowels, acids from unbalanced foods, drink and drug poisons, and various disease products in the form of serums, vaccines and antitoxins……..germs reduce dead and dying organic matter back to its inorganic constituents suitable again as nourishment for plant life.”

            George Teasedale – Nature Heals! Why Be Sick

            This explains why millions of children in third world countries continue to die each year from measles, polio, tuberculosis etc despite being fully vaccinated. Vaccines do nothing to correct the nutritional status of a malnourished child. In Australia, aboriginal children are the most heavily drugged and heavily vaccinated group in the country yet they have an infection rate 100 times higher than white Australian children.

            Vaccines neither remove the causes of disease or alter a child’s susceptibility to infection and it is for this reason that vaccines have proven to be ineffective at preventing childhood infection.

            So in your busy schedule of talking down to people, do they ever ask you to explain why googling “doctors against vaccination” produces 8,750,000 hits? Granted it brings up both for and against, but there are plenty of mainstream doctors questioning “vaccines”. As for myself, I study and practise life extension which is health extension. I’ve auditted a number of college courses for knowlege as opposed to adding letters after my name.

            I got the 68 vaccines from the CDC vaccine schedule, same place I got the 30+ before 24 months.

            “You know why supplements don’t kill people? Because they don’t do anything, they are snake oil.”

            Wow, so with a bachelors and masters in Biology, studying towards a PhD, you’ve never heard of scurvy? Beri-beri? Pellagra? Biotin deficiencies? (causes rashes, hair loss, anaemia, and mental conditions including hallucinations, drowsiness, and depression.) Rickets? Apparently “snake oil” can also maskerade as “education”. Thank-you, with just one statement you’ve undermined yourself. Based upon your post, I’m assuming you went to Berkley? lol

          • Samantha Kelly

            You are correct that the symptoms that we experience when we get an illness are a result of our body reacting to the virus, that is 100% true. We spend an entire immunology class debating the usefulness of various immune components and coming to the realization that half of our immune system doesn’t really do us any favors. Fevers are your body trying to heat to a point where pathogens get fried, a sore throat is the result of overzealous immune cells destroying virus carrying throat cells. I’m not denying that, it’s true. What you don’t seem to get is that vaccines DO help prevent this. When your body first gets infected, immune cells spend hours to days trying to identify the pathogen. You have specialized cells that exist to create antibodies to pathogens. Your immune system essentially brings a sample pathogen to each and every immune cell to see if it recognizes it. Vaccines allow the body to create LOTS of these cells that recognize a pathogen so that it takes less time for the body to identify and neutralize it. The longer a pathogen is in the body, the more it reproduces and the more your body needs to do to get rid of it. The more your body has to do, the more symptoms you experience. If your body is able to squash the invader before it replicates much, you don’t experience as many symptoms, if any at all. Yes being well nourished is going to make your body better at doing that but no amount of nutrition is going to generate immune cells against measles, mumps, polio etc.

            Symbiosis is, by default, mutual. Calling something mutualistic symbiosis is redundant.

            Germs thrive in tissues regardless of how much “toxins” there are in them. Many germs have mechanisms that allow them to evade the immune system coming in which makes vaccination even more crucial. Your body needs to hit pathogens fast and hard in order to kill them before they can take hold and the ONLY way it is going to do that is if antibodies are already present in the body. This comes about in one of two ways, vaccination, or natural infection.

            Please provide the source that shows that millions of children die from polio, TB etc despite being fully vaccinated.

            I have not done a large amount of research into the aboriginal children in Australia and their increased susceptibility to diseases but my guess is that it is a genetic susceptibility.

            Your argument that because there are plenty of google hits for doctors against vaccines is a logical fallacy. Just because people think something doesn’t mean it is true. McDonalds workers in NYC are claiming that they deserve to be making $15 a hour. You can google raising the minimum wage for McDonalds workers and get nearly 500,000 results. Can I claim that means that there is evidence that it should happen?

            Good for you for auditing courses, but what courses have you taken? You work in “life extension” which, last I checked, isn’t a field known for it’s reputability.

            I’ve heard of scurvy, beri-beri, pellagra and biotin deficiencies. Similar to measles, mumps, rubella, polio, etc, we don’t see much of those anymore because people eat what they need to and things that people don’t get enough of are supplemented in other foods (Iodine in salt, Vit A and D in milk etc). When was the last time you heard of someone getting any of those diseases?

            I have done all of my schooling on the east coast. My bachelors is from a university with a top medical program. Many of my upper level course professors also taught in the medical school. I had professors who worked in the labs of Nobel laureates in chemistry and biology which is why I selected that university. My masters and PhD are being done in the Washington DC area with a professor who has strong affiliations with the NIH. Multiple people in my program work on immunology or directly with vaccinations, some at the NIH, some on our campus. I’m not a crazy liberal like people at Berkeley. I just understand biology enough to know that even a few people’s minds being changed because of what I have said could make a difference.

        Have you read an actual insert for something like asprin? It’s just as long and covers everything that ever might happen at all. Have you ever read the insert for a hairdryer? They warn to never use while sleeping, because one person managed to set their house on fire after putting a hair dryer under the sheets to keep their feet warm at night. Listen to any commercial for a drug, they have the same long list. Every been skiing? Look at the back of the lift ticket and everything they say to prevent you from suing them. Ever read one of those waivers for roller skating, or rock climbing? You basically say even if they are negligent and you die as a result, they are protected. I assume you would willing take your kids roller skating, right? They have a warning list as long as a vaccination too.

    “The Journal of the American Institute for
    May, 1921, had a long article about the use of homeopathy in the flu
    Dr. T A McCann, from Dayton, Ohio reported that 24,000 cases of flu treated
    allopathically had a mortality rate of 28.2% while 26,000 cases of flu
    treated homeopathically had a mortality rate of 1.05%. This last figure
    was supported by Dean W.A. Pearson of Philadelphia (Hahnemann College)
    who collected 26,795 cases of flu treated with homeopathy with the above
    result….. Dr. Herbert A. Roberts from Derby, CT, said that 30 physicians
    in Connecticut responded to his request for data. They reported 6,602 cases
    with 55 deaths, which is less than 1%. Dr. Roberts was working as a
    on a troop ship during WWI. He had 81 cases of flu on the way over to
    He reported, “All recovered and were landed. Every man received
    treatment. One ship lost 31 on the way.”—Julian Winston

      Was that observational or did they force people to get either homeopathic or allopathic treatment? People who are very sick and experiencing major complications aren’t going to go to an osteopath, they’re going to go to the ER to save their life. The more severe cases will end up with standard doctors and the less severe cases or those who are really stubborn are going to end up with an osteopath. Correlation is shown in an observational study but you cannot determine causation because there are too many other factors at play. In an experimental study, only one variable changes, in this case, people would walk in and either get one treatment type or another. This lets you determine if the treatment makes a difference.

        You have to understand that at that time the AMA wasn’t powerful enough to outlaw alternative treatments or revoke the License of Doctors who did, although they were working on it. (You might want to look at the history of the AMA that’s not written by them.) As a result, people could CHOOSE treatments from a wider base instead of “take it, its mandatory” put into law by an organization that has been found guilty of racketeering three times.

          That doesn’t matter. If the study isn’t experimental, then the results mean there is a correlation but not a causation. There are too many variables. Also, I didn’t catch that the study was from 1921! We’ve made such huge medical advances since 1921. That’s almost 100 years ago. Any good researcher knows that if an article isn’t from the past 5 to 10 years it’s useless. Find a CURRENT article showing the same discrepancy between the two types of treatment and then we’ll talk. I will reiterate this from my other response, you’ve never taken a science class, have you?

    If you cannot spell with a third grade education, you should refrain from calling people “moron”. Also, myself, my husband and my children have all gotten every vaccine recommended by the CDC and we are all in perfect health.
    Furthermore, my *facts* above are correct (you can look them up anywhere on a non-biased informational site) and your rebuttal was nothing but an immature, incorrect, grammatical catastrophe. Thanks for showing us the kind of people who deny life-saving vaccines for their children.

    Hey “Educated”,
    You may want to change your name and educate yourself on herd immunity and the effects of unvaccinated people on the general population before you spout off like a pretentious, know-it-all. That way, you may save yourself from looking like an ignorant ass.
    Keep making it look easy for those who are actually educated about vaccines (hence, why we get them) and keep showing how little you know about the actual benefits of being vaccinated. It’s almost like we don’t have to do any work. You all make yourselves look foolish without our help.

    It’s likely that the flu shot either caused the flu in her or contributed to her death by weakening her immune system. http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2013/08/swine-study-suggests-flu-vaccination-may-sometimes-backfire
