Beware of the feds’ flu shots, says Michael Savage

‘Not everything your government tells you is true.’

Don’t get a flu shot, warns conservative talk show host Michael Savage, because you just can’t trust the government.

“Did Harry Reid get a flu shot?” the Larkspur, Calif., resident asked in a recent broadcast. “Did Barack Obama take a flu shot? Did Barack Obama’s lovely family take a flu shot? Did Joe Biden take a flu shot?

“Which of the mandarins took a flu shot?”

So far, there’s been no response from the mandarins. Very suspicious. If the CDC is going to urge Americans to get vaccinated, the White House could at least say whether Sasha and Malia got their shots.

The flu vaccine contains formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, Savage says. Totally true. Getting a flu shot might not be the same as eating FEMA trailer insulation, but you are having formaldehyde injected into your body.

Same with thimerosal, a mercury-laced organic compound used as a preservative in some flu shots. Thimerosal has been linked by some to autism.

Now the pro-flu shot lobby will tell you that the negligible quantities of formaldehyde and thimerosal in the vaccine are harmless, even for young children.

It will remind you that side effects are very rare, that you can’t get the flu from getting vaccinated and that the new “combined” shots, which protect against both H1N1 and seasonal flu, are made the same way as the old flu shots.

But, says Dr. Savage (Did you know he’s a doctor? Not a medical doctor, but still), suppose you do get a shot and years pass “and you get ALS or Alzheimer’s disease or MS, or you watch your kid develop seizures, or your kid becomes autistic, God forbid, what are you going to say?”

You’ll say, “I shouldn’t have gotten that flu shot back in 2013,” that’s what! Unless you get Alzheimer’s.

So listen to Dr. Savage and refuse to submit to the pro-flu shot lobby’s disease-eradicating agenda. After all, when was the last time any government-recommended vaccine containing formaldehyde did any good?

Well, except for measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox and polio.

Did I mention you shouldn’t drink fluoridated water?

Flu shot not even 50% effective

This year’s flu vaccine provided little protection to people 65 and older who got a shot, new data released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control reveal.

The study estimates how well the vaccine did at preventing people from becoming sick enough to need to see a doctor, preventing “medically attended flu” in influenza science parlance. And the data suggest this year the vaccine didn’t perform very well for older adults.

It found that a flu shot cut an older adult’s risk of contracting a case of influenza A H3N2 that needed medical care by only nine per cent.

When the scientists calculated the overall effectiveness, the vaccine’s ability to prevent medically attended flu caused by both flu A and B viruses, the estimate was 27 per cent for older adults.

The findings are disappointing given the H3N2 component in this year’s vaccine is well matched to the viruses circulating. Paradoxically, the B component of the vaccine isn’t as closely matched to circulating viruses, yet it is performing better, according to the study.

Dr. Joe Bresee, a flu expert with the CDC, said older adults need to know that if they got a flu shot and they develop flu-like illness, they may have influenza and should see a doctor to determine if they should take antiviral drugs.

“We wanted to make sure that people knew that, especially if you’re elderly to know that, because we still want to communicate the fact that if you do get sick, get antivirals. And don’t assume just because you got the vaccine, that that flu-like illness you’ve got can’t be flu,” said Bresee, who heads the CDC flu division’s epidemiology team.

For Canada the H3N2 effectiveness rate was 45 per cent, she noted, while European investigators pegged the effectiveness against that component at 42 per cent.
