CDC Admits to Flu Vaccine’s Ineffectiveness

Untold thousands of people from nearly all 50 U.S. states have continued to flood hospital emergency rooms in recent weeks due to widespread outbreaks of flu-like symptoms. And because many of these people have already been vaccinated for the flu this season, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is basically having to admit that the flu shot is not nearly as effective as we have all been told it is — but be sure to get it anyway (they continually say).

As reported by CBS News, the most recent statistics show that at least 24 states and New York City are experiencing “high activity of influenza-like illness,” and another 16 states are reporting moderate activity, despite the warmer-than-normal winter in many places throughout the country. And since it is so early into the so-called “flu season,” officials are scrambling to make sense of the situation, especially as it is becoming painfully obvious that flu shots simply do not work.

Even children are falling victim to the flu, as more than 20 children from across the U.S., according to FOX News, have died in recent weeks due to flu complications. As reported by various news sources, many of these children and others had been vaccinated for the flu, illustrating its ineffectiveness.

“[T]hese early [vaccine effectiveness] estimates underscore that some vaccinated persons will become infected with influenza,” admitted CDC researchers in a new study published in the journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. This same report admits that flu vaccines are also only about 60 percent effective at preventing the flu, based on infection rates in recent years.

Flu vaccine is actually less than two percent effective, based on the figures

 
But as we reported back in 2011, the data the CDC is using to claim even a 60 percent effectiveness rate for the flu shot is largely misinterpreted. Only about 2.7 in 100 adults gets the flu every year on average, according to the Lancet published meta-analyses that the CDC is referring to with its 60 percent effectiveness claim. But when you introduce vaccines into the picture, that number only drops by 1.5 percent…

    Ineffective? Sounds like the vaccines could actually be the problem. If those that are being injected are getting the flu, is the vaccine actually creating that which it is intended to avoid?? Personally, I prefer to avoid any injections into my healthy body, which makes me 100% responsible for what I create in it.

    Do the research. They vaccinate against certain strains of the flu. The vaccine is changed with each flu season depending on which strains have been going around and which ones they think will hit hard this flu season. It might not be that the vaccines aren’t working, it might simply mean that the strain that is going around is not the one that the vaccinations was made for. They rolled the dice and didn’t win.
