The U.S. is in the midst of one of the worst outbreaks of influenza in years, and in spite of the fact that the CDC is estimating that the flu vaccine is only about 10% effective, there are massive advertising campaigns in place to get the entire population vaccinated for the flu.
Media reports are coming in reporting high rates of deaths due to the flu, and the majority of those dying from the flu have been vaccinated. (See: Flu Kills Eight Santa Barbara Residents in Two Weeks for one example where local media reports 7 of the 8 people who died from the flu were vaccinated for the flu.)
The flu shot is not without severe risks, risks that are routinely censored in the corporate “mainstream” media, and include paralysis from Guillain-Barré Syndrome, chronic shoulder pain from SIRVA, and death. It is, by far, the most dangerous vaccine in America.
Government Issues First Report in 2017 on Vaccine Injuries and Deaths: 275 Injured 4 Dead from Flu Shot
Given the fact that health authorities themselves admit that the flu vaccine is not effective, the public should be made aware of these risks.
The bigger question that needs to be considered is: could the lucrative mass flu vaccination program actually be a cause for more severe flu outbreaks, rather than a cure?
Over 300 million doses of the flu vaccine are manufactured each season, representing a huge cash flow for the pharmaceutical industry that they would obviously be hesitant to give up simply because it is not effective, or even if it is an underlying cause of more severe flu outbreaks.
Flu Vaccine Manufacturing: End Product is Totally Unpredictable
In an article titled, Think Flu Season Is Bad? It Might Get Even Worse, published by Bloomberg on the 16th of January, 2018, author, Michelle Cortez, wrote that:
“The CDC is starting to see infections caused by the H1N1 strain of the virus in states grappling with high levels of the H3N2 strain, the predominant version this season. In addition, Jernigan says yet another type of flu, caused by the influenza B viruses, is still expected to show up later in the season.
H3N2 has compounded the damage usually wrought by the annual flu outbreak. It’s known for both its severity and ability to evade the protection provided by vaccinations that are typically more effective against the other types of flu.
Most flu vaccines are made using eggs, which are less hospitable to growing the H3N2 strain and thus less likely to develop an effective vaccine. That strain goes through more changes over time than other versions, so vaccines are often behind the curve when they reach the general public.” (Emphasis added)
Late last year Health Impact News reported on a study published by The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, documenting how influenza viruses cultured in eggs mutate, making the flu vaccines virtually worthless.
The authors of the study stated:
Seasonal influenza vaccine does not always confer protection in vaccinated individuals. Vaccine candidates are selected from clinical isolates based on their antigenic properties.
It is common to use chicken eggs for culturing clinical isolates and for large-scale production of vaccines. However, influenza virus often mutates to adapt to being grown in chicken eggs, which can influence antigenicity and hence vaccine effectiveness.
Is the U.S. Mass Flu Vaccination Program Actually Causing More Severe Influenza Outbreaks?
Over the past few years, several studies have pointed to the fact that repeated flu vaccinations year after year actually reduces the effectiveness of the vaccine, raising serious questions about yearly mass flu vaccination programs.
The most recent was a study out of Australia where researchers showed that those who had multiple flu vaccines actually produced fewer antibodies than those who did not get the flu shot regularly.
Most people probably do not realize that the measure of success for a vaccine is not whether you stay healthy or get sick, but simply if your body develops the appropriate antibodies thought to be required to fight off the disease being vaccinated against.
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny explains this very well in the following video:
This was not the first study to show that repeated flu shots every year decrease one’s resistance to influenza viruses.
Dr. Edward Belongia of the Wisconsin’s Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation reported the same thing back in 2015, and a study in 2013 showed that getting the flu shot two years in a row lowered protection.
We have frequently published an interview with Dr. Mark Geier explaining how little science there is behind the flu vaccine.
Dr. Geier is NOT anti-vaccine. He is an M.D. and has a Ph.D. in genetics. He spent 10 years working at the National Institute of Health, and was a professor at Johns Hopkins University as a geneticist. He is also the author of over 150 peer-reviewed publications.
He worked on vaccine safety and efficacy for more than 30 years. He was one of four scientists that worked to replace the DTP vaccine, a vaccine that caused every child to become sick with a high fever at the time of vaccination, with the DTaP vaccine, which is a more purified vaccine.
Dr. Geier explains that the CDC does not follow the law for vaccines in requiring long-term safety testing for the influenza vaccine like they do with other vaccines, as it is impossible to test a vaccine that changes every year.
So the flu vaccine is basically an experimental vaccine that they want to give out to 300 million people every year. There are also no studies showing the safety of giving the flu vaccine to the same person every single year.
However, Dr. Geier points out that the CDC is in the business of distributing ‘flu vaccines, because they represent 300 million doses per year, whereas all the childhood vaccines together only number 20 million.
Dr. Geier explains that flu is “the wrong thing to vaccinate against” because you have to keep re-vaccinating against it every year, unlike childhood infectious diseases, such as smallpox, that are only vaccinated for once.
Watch the entire interview:
UK consultant and healthcare practitioner, Dr. Graham Downing, told Health Impact News that he was not convinced by the flu vaccine data being offered by the government and believed that others felt the same. He stated that:
Most healthcare workers and researchers that understand the science feel that what is being presented here is marketing not science. Independent analysis by the Cochrane collaboration has pointed that out many times and they are highly respected.
My own analysis for example of the flu nasal spray showed that the vaccine effects were negligible but were being touted as having high efficacy by government institutions.
Even the CDC which by any standard is very pro-vaccine estimated its efficacy at -23%!
In fact, with flu, vitamin D3 has been shown in a blinded placebo controlled trial to be more effective.
To support his statement, Dr. Downing directed us to a video by Dr. Mercola, who agreed that we should ditch the flu vaccine in favor of vitamin D.
There are things that you can do to prevent the flu, now wouldn’t that be better, prevention makes a lot more sense. Clearly you would like to take control of your health lifestyle program, which involves of course normalizing your insulin and doing exercise and all the things that I talk about.
But there specific that will really virtually annihilate the flu and what has been clearly shown without any question is vitamin D, and the best way to get vitamin D is through sun exposure.
Unfortunately, and isn’t it a coincidence that flu occurs in the winter, which is when you don’t have access to appropriate amounts of sunshine.
Mercola continued by providing several alternative ways of making sure that your body is receiving adequate vitamin D throughout the year.

Public in Danger from Mass Flu Vaccination Programs
Despite Dr. Geier’s testimony and the testimony of other doctors and scientists questioning the lack of science behind the flu vaccine, the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to recommend the annual flu shot to everyone over the age of six months, including pregnant women.
Factual evidence hardly supports the government’s view that the flu vaccine is safe for pregnant women, and ignores fetal deaths reported after flu vaccines:
This may be because the flu vaccine has not been tested in pregnant women.
Don’t Let Corporate Media Censorship on Flu Vaccine Dangers Make you or your Family a Victim!
Almost every single corporate media reports on this year’s flu epidemic, even if they admit that the flu vaccine is ineffective, will follow the script to tell you that you should get the flu vaccine anyway, as it is still the “best option” to fight the flu according to them and the CDC.
They will never mention the fact the people are being crippled and killed by the flu vaccine. This fact is indisputable, as the quarterly DOJ reports on compensation for vaccine injuries and deaths clearly show that the flu vaccine is the most dangerous vaccine in America.
As far as I know, Health Impact News is still the only media source publishing these quarterly DOJ reports on compensation for vaccine injuries and deaths.
These reports are required by law, as the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act gave legal immunity to pharmaceutical companies for the manufacture of vaccines. Any injuries or deaths due to vaccines now must be litigated in an national “Vaccine Court” funded by a tax on vaccines.
If it were not for this legal protection, the courts would be filled with cases of vaccine injuries and deaths.
As it is, even under current law, there is a good chance that if you received the flu vaccine, it was probably illegal. See:
The Vaccine Cartel: Largest Criminal Organization in the World – Why Your Flu Shot is Probably Illegal
by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News
If you are getting a flu shot this season, chances are that those who are providing the vaccine to you are breaking federal laws – and they don’t care.
The reason they don’t care is because in 1986 Congress passed a law that then President Ronald Reagan signed which gave pharmaceutical companies that manufacture vaccines and medical personnel who administer those vaccines total legal immunity for injuries or deaths related to vaccines.
As a result, federal guidelines for administering vaccines that are designed to protect patients are routinely ignored, especially when it comes to the annual flu shot that almost anyone can purchase in a pharmacy just as easily as they can purchase a candy bar or can of soda.
If you have a severe reaction, injury, or are killed by the flu shot, you or your family have no legal recourse to sue the manufacturer or those who gave you the vaccine, even if they broke federal laws in administering the vaccine (as most do). You must hire an attorney and sue the Federal Government in vaccine court, where attorneys working for the Department of Justice (DOJ) will fight you to try and prevent you from being compensated for your injury or death.
Health Impact News is probably the only media organization that publishes the quarterly reports from the DOJ listing settlements in the vaccine court for vaccine injuries and deaths, and each report clearly shows that the annual flu vaccine is the most dangerous vaccine in the U.S., causing severe injuries and deaths each year.
The most recent report from September 2017 listed 275 injuries and four deaths from the flu vaccine. But the manufacturers of the flu vaccines and those who administer them take no responsibility and suffer no consequences, even if they broke the law.
Justice for criminal medical murders and injuries largely does not exist in the United States.
Information About the Flu Vaccine that is Required by Federal Law
You Must Receive a Vaccine Information Statement Prior to Receiving a Flu Shot
When someone injects you with the flu vaccine (as well as most other vaccines), federal law requires that they first give to you a Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) before injecting you.
Federal law (under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act) requires a health care provider to give a copy of the current VIS to an adult patient or to a child’s parent/legal representative before vaccinating an adult or child with a dose of the following vaccines: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, polio, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), influenza, pneumococcal conjugate, meningococcal, rotavirus, human papillomavirus (HPV), or varicella (chickenpox). Source.
In addition to the requirement to give you this VIS about the vaccine you are receiving (and if it is a multi-dose vaccine they are required to provide a VIS for each dose), whomever is administering the vaccine is also required by federal law to:
record in the patient’s medical record (or permanent office log or file) the following information:
- The edition date of the VIS (found on the back) (i.e., the date of the visit, right bottom corner)
- The date the VIS is provided (i.e., the date of the visit when the vaccine is administered)
In addition, providers must record:
- The office address and name and title of the person who administers the vaccine
- The date the vaccine is administered
- The vaccine manufacturer and lot number
What are the Warnings About the Flu Shot Given in the VIS?
Here is what these Statements say about who should not receive flu vaccines:
Inactivated or Recombinant flu shot:
Tell the person who is giving you the vaccine:
• If you have any severe, life-threatening allergies.
If you ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction
after a dose of flu vaccine, or have a severe allergy to
any part of this vaccine, you may be advised not to
get vaccinated. Most, but not all, types of flu vaccine
contain a small amount of egg protein.
• If you ever had Guillain-Barré Syndrome (also
Some people with a history of GBS should not get this
vaccine. This should be discussed with your doctor.
• If you are not feeling well.
It is usually okay to get the flu vaccine when you have
a mild illness, but you might be asked to come back
when you feel better.
Live, Intranasal flu shot:
Some people should not get LAIV because of age, health
conditions, or other reasons. Most of these people should
get an injected flu vaccine instead. Your healthcare
provider can help you decide.
Tell the provider if you or the person being vaccinated:
• have any allergies, including an allergy to eggs, or
have ever had an allergic reaction to an influenza
• have ever had Guillain-Barré Syndrome (also called
• have any long-term heart, breathing, kidney, liver, or
nervous system problems.
• have asthma or breathing problems, or are a child who
has had wheezing episodes.
• are pregnant.
• are a child or adolescent who is receiving aspirin or
• have a weakened immune system.
• will be visiting or taking care of someone, within the
next 7 days, who requires a protected environment (for
example, following a bone marrow transplant)
Sometimes LAIV should be delayed. Tell the provider if
you or the person being vaccinated:
• are not feeling well. The vaccine could be delayed
until you feel better.
• have gotten any other vaccines in the past 4 weeks.
Live vaccines given too close together might not work
• have taken influenza antiviral medication in the past
• have a very stuffy nose.
Please note that with the Live, attenuated flu vaccine, administered as a nasal spray, that the CDC and flu manufacturers are admitting that the person receiving the vaccine is carrying around the live virus and is in danger of infecting others for 7 days!
Think about the hypocrisy about influenza outbreaks currently practiced in public places. If there is an influenza outbreak in a school, for example, who is encouraged to stay home because they are perceived as a risk to the rest of the population? Those who have received the Live, attenuated flu vaccine?
No! The unvaccinated are deemed to be at risk for spreading the influenza, and are ordered to stay home.
In a hospital setting who among the medical staff is required to stay home or wear a mask because they are perceived to be a threat to the patient population? Those who have received the Live, attenuated flu vaccine?
No! The unvaccinated nurses and other hospital staff are perceived to be a threat to the patient population, and either are required to wear a mask or often they are fired from their positions for refusing the flu vaccine.
Do These VIS Sheets Meet Federal Requirements for Flu Shot Warnings?
Part of the information that is required by federal law to be given to everyone prior to receiving the flu vaccine is given in this statement from the VIS:
If you have any severe, life-threatening allergies.
If you ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction after a dose of flu vaccine, or have a severe allergy to any part of this vaccine, you may be advised not to get vaccinated. Most, but not all, types of flu vaccine contain a small amount of egg protein.
Notice that the only potential allergen given in this warning is to “egg protein,” yet the warning is for “any part of this vaccine.”
How would you know if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in a flu shot if you are not provided with a list of ingredients of that particular flu vaccine (there are several different flu vaccines on the market, each with different lists of ingredients).
For example, did you know that one of the new flu vaccines on the market contains armyworms and insects?
The VAXXED team recently went into a pharmacy and asked some basic questions about the flu shot. When they asked “Is there anything I should worry about in getting the flu shot?” the response given was: “The only contra-indication is if you are allergic to eggs.”
When asked if they had the product insert for the vaccine from the manufacturer, the person replied: “When we open the box we just throw it away.”
With No Legal Consequences for Injuries and Deaths due to the Flu Vaccine, Big Pharma is Pushing to Get More People Vaccinated
It is easy to see what the agenda is for the pharmaceutical companies who manufacture flu shots. It is a multi-billion dollar a year industry, but a large segment of the adult population remains unvaccinated.
One flu manufacturer has sponsored a website to promote ways to get more adults vaccinated:
“Standing Orders” are a way to get more adults vaccinated by loosening the restrictions in place that were originally intended to protect patients and their right to consult with their physicians about medical decisions.
From the website, which is sponsored by Pfizer:
Standing orders authorize nurses and other appropriately trained health care personnel, where allowed by state law, to assess a patient’s immunization status and administer vaccinations according to a protocol approved by an institution, physician, or other authorized practitioner. Immunization standing orders work by enabling assessment and vaccination of the patient without the need for clinician examination or direct order from the attending provider at the time of the interaction. (emphasis added.)
These “Standing Orders” apparently authorize a broader range of personnel who can administer vaccines. Studies done in the past on the impact of Standing Orders, such as with the HPV vaccine Gardasil, show that the use of these Standing Orders does increase vaccination rates.
The Immunization Action Coalition, which works with Pfizer to educate medical professionals about Standing Orders, hosts conferences around the country on how to increase the use of these Standing Orders.
One of the things they teach is that one of the “barriers” to using Standing Orders is the fear of being sued for malpractice. Here is a slide from their presentation:
In order to overcome this barrier to the “fear of malpractice,” they educate personnel on the National Vaccine Compensation Program, which was the result of the 1986 law giving legal immunity to the medical community for injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines.
Here is a slide from their presentation:
Are Medical Personnel Administering Vaccines without Patient Consent or Knowledge?
According to medical personnel whistleblowers who do not approve of forced vaccinations and mourn the loss of patient rights, yes, some adults are being vaccinated in hospitals without their knowledge or consent. This is especially true with the flu vaccine.
Health Impact News published an interview from a nurse last year who reported that this is indeed happening in hospitals:
This policy is apparently a result of these “Standing Orders.”
The nurse in this interview gives the following advice if you find yourself in a hospital needing surgery:
When you sign consent for surgery, you can specifically say ‘no vaccines, I don’t want this.’ You can write an initial after what you say you do not want and they have to honor that. And if they don’t honor that, they can be sued.
Vaccine Manufacturers Constitute the Largest Criminal Organization in the World
It has been well documented that pharmaceutical companies comprise the largest group of illegal criminal activities of any other group in the world.
Richard Smith, editor of the British Medical Journal until 2004, wrote an opinion piece in 2013 about a book published by Peter Gøtzsche, the head of the Nordic Cochrane Centre, entitled “Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare.”
The characteristics of organised crime, racketeering, is defined in US law as the act of engaging repeatedly in certain types of offence, including extortion, fraud, federal drug offences, bribery, embezzlement, obstruction of justice, obstruction of law enforcement, tampering with witnesses, and political corruption. Peter produces evidence, most of it detailed, to support his case that pharmaceutical companies are guilty of most of these offences. (Source.)
The “largest fraud settlement in U.S. history” was against a pharmaceutical company:
On July 2, 2012 the British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline plead guilty to three counts of criminal misdemeanor and other civil liabilities relating to the prescription drugs Paxil, Wellbutrin and Avandia, and agreed to pay a total of $3 billion in fines–$1 billion to settle criminal charges, and $2 billion to cover civil liabilities.
The payment is the largest fraud settlement in U.S. history, and the largest fine ever paid by a drug company. (Source.)
In 2010 a panel of doctors with the Public Citizen’s Health Research Group produced a study showing that while the defense industry used to be the biggest defrauder of the federal government under the False Claims Act, the pharmaceutical industry has now overtaken them. The study found that:
U.S. spending on prescription drugs has increased from $40 billion in 1990 to $234 billion in 2008. In this era of rapidly rising drug costs, the illegal pharmaceutical company activities that have contributed to such inflated spending have garnered a significant amount of media attention.
Recent billion dollar settlements with two of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, Eli Lilly and Pfizer, provide evidence of the enormous scale of this wrongdoing.
Now, keep in mind that all of these illegal criminal settlements were for drugs that did NOT include vaccines. You cannot sue a drug company for illegal activities regarding the manufacture, sale, and distribution of vaccines, thanks to an act of Congress in 1986 and the full support of then President Ronald Reagan.
So given the fact that the pharmaceutical industry is the largest class of criminals in the world for products that do not include vaccines, how much worse are they since no one can sue them for crimes committed in regards to vaccines?
It is almost more than the mind can imagine or believe.
Isn’t it time to repeal the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act?
