Flu vaccines don’t work for elderly people, says the latest science. Tracey Watson reported on Sept. 19, 2017 that there has been a total media blackout over this news. One can only wonder why. Don’t the elderly deserve to know this information? There has also been a near total blackout on the troubling shingles vaccine that fails 98-99% of the elderly.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), decides the national vaccination schedule “recommended” for children. The CDC notes that those most at risk of complications from the flu virus are children younger than 5, and especially those under 2; pregnant women; people in nursing homes; and adults over 65. The elderly are therefore among the most vulnerable members of society to influenza. The problem is that the flu shot last year was again determined to be ineffective for the elderly.
Public Health England (PHE) released a recent report that says, even though the flu shot seems to have been slightly more effective at preventing influenza among children than in the past, last year’s flu shot was totally ineffective for the elderly.
Flu Vaccine fails to thwart most common Strain
Vaccine “experts” believe the shot was ineffective because it failed to protect against the H3 strain, the most common circulating flu strain. The flu shot is at best a game of chance each year. “Experts” must attempt to predict which of three strains of the flu virus will be in circulation the next winter. Even in a good year, their strike rate is a woeful 50 percent.
But that doesn’t mean CDC officials ever admit when a vaccine is ineffective or even useless. In the case of the elderly, vaccine health professionals blame the elderly themselves. A representative of PHE told BBC News: “As people age, their immune systems are often weaker and therefore their bodies may not respond as well to a vaccine as younger people’s bodies.”
Doubling Down on a Failed Flu Vaccine
Instead of admitting defeat, then, and encouraging seniors to pursue proven natural flu prevention paths, health officials just continue to push the flu shot. Yes, despite the flu vaccine’s failure to help the elderly, vaccine “experts” still recommend older people take the flu jab again and again.
Mr. Watson points out that this is like saying, “The flu shot is useless for you and we know it, but you need to have it anyway.” The so-called medical “experts” have even decided to double down on the insanity. They have introduced “high-dose jabs that work to boost the body’s immune response to receiving the vaccine.”
Doubly Useless Flu Shots for Elderly
It’s hard to follow the logic, because there’s no logic to follow. This is like saying, “The flu jab is useless for you and we know it, so we’re going to make it twice as useless. Just keep quiet and take the jab.” Meanwhile, thanks in part to the levels of mercury and/or aluminum and other “adjuvants” in flu shots, one’s risk of suffering from Alzheimer’s tends to rise with the number of flu shots one has taken over the years.
Flu vaccines don’t work for elderly, says latest science
Tracy Watson does offer some helpful news, “at least four easy, natural and effective ways to work with your body to build up your immune system and prevent the flu”: 1.) sunlight (Vitamin D3); 2.) Astragalus (a staple of ancient Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine); 3.) Echinacea and golden seal (powerful immune boosters); 4.) lifestyle and dietary changes (exercise, clean water, good sleep, controlled stress, fresh, organic fruits and vegetables).
