- Increased risk of noninfluenza respiratory virus infections associated with receipt of inactivated influenza vaccine
We randomized 115 children to trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (TIV) or placebo. Over the following 9 months, TIV recipients had an increased risk of virologically-confirmed non-influenza infections (relative risk: 4.40; 95% confidence interval: 1.31-14.8). Being protected against influenza, TIV recipients may lack temporary non-specific immunity that protected against other respiratory viruses.Source: School of Public Health, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam, Hong Kong SAR, China
- Scientists discover adjuvants in flu shots cause a rise in adverse reactions among elderly
Getting a seasonal flu shot can leave healthy adults with the common side effects of feeling achy or feverish. Now, researchers have identified a gene-expression pattern in circulating immune cells that could help predict which individuals are more likely to suffer these adverse effects following vaccination. This molecular signature was also correlated with a person’s chances of having autoreactive antibodies, according to the results published today (January 4, 2016) in Nature Immunology.Source: The Scientist
- Efficacy of pneumococcal vaccination in adults: a meta-analysis
Clinical trials and meta-analyses have produced conflicting results of the efficacy of unconjugated pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine in adults. We sought to evaluate the vaccine's efficacy on clinical outcomes as well as the methodologic quality of the trials.Source: Anke Huss, PhD, Pippa Scott, MSc, Andreas E.

Various case reports have shown possible associations between optic neuritis and different vaccines. Some of the vaccines include influenza, hepatitis B and anthrax.Source: Binocul Vis Strabolog Q Simms Romano
- Johns Hopkins Scientist, Peter Doshi, Ph.D., Reveals Shocking Report on Flu Vaccines
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have recently approved new flu vaccines for the 2015 flu season.
The new shot contains an added adjuvant that has been criticized by experts as being very unsafe for humans.
Remember you can avoid getting damaged by saying no and thoroughly investigating the untold side of the “safe and ok for public” story that is dished out by the officials.Source: Your News Wire
- Scientist Admit Flu Shot Fails Every Year – Exposes Flaws
The flu shot is one of the biggest scams the pharmaceutical company has ever developed. Year after year, this shot fails to meet the ambitious projections put forth by every mainstream media outlet. The media commonly praises the flu shot as one of man’s greatest accomplishments. How it is able to fail every year and yet come back in full force the next year is beyond comprehension. But that’s exactly what does happen.Source: The Flu Shot Site
- VRM: Primary Reasons Not To Get The Flu Shot
Seasonal Influenza (Flu) virus strains are constantly mutating from year to year. There is no criteria verifying the efficacy and effectiveness of influenza vaccines (composed of a grab-bag of several current circulating strains); while there is plenty of scientific data verifying the toxic properties of the Flu vaccine formula.Source: Vaccine Resistance Movement
- Study Confirms Link Between Flu Vax and Miscarriage
Now, science has confirmed what women already knew by observation – getting the Swine Flu (H1N1) vaccine when you are pregnant is dangerous for the fetus in many cases causing spontaneous abortion.Source: The Healthy Home Economist
The study, published online September 27, 2012 by the Journal of Human and Experimental Toxicology, examined three flu seasons, starting in 2008/2009 to see if the addition of the Swine Flu vaccine in 2009/2010 did indeed cause an increase in fetal death.

Study notes lower immune response after 2 straight flu vaccinations
Post-vaccine levels of antibodies to influenza hemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA) decline slowly over 18 months in adults, and individuals vaccinated 2 years in a row have significantly lower immune responses, according to a study yesterday in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.
- Squalene-adjuvanted flu shots for the elderly
Science teaches that oil and water don’t mix. However, the Food and Drug Administration just fast-tracked Novartis’ oil-in water, squalene adjuvant flu shot for approval in individuals 65 and older. The squalene emulsion cocktail is approved for use in the U.S. one year after Italian regulators temporarily banned the squalene Fluad vaccine following 19 elderly deaths reported after vaccination.Source: Health Nut News
- Narcolepsy boy wins 120K Swine Flu Vaccine Damages
A boy with a rare sleeping illness caused by a swine flu vaccine has won £120,000 in damages.
Josh Hadfield, 10, from Frome in Somerset, developed narcolepsy after receiving the Pandemrix vaccine six years ago.
He was awarded the money after appealing against the government which had initially refused to pay as he was not "severely disabled" enough.Source: BBC News
- Brain damaged victims of Swine Flu vaccine to get $60 million compensation
Patients who suffered brain damage as a result of taking a swine flu vaccine are to receive multi-million-pound payouts from the UK government.
The government is expected to receive a bill of approximately £60 million, with each of the 60 victims expected to receive about £1 million each.
Peter Todd, a lawyer who represented many of the claimants, told the Sunday Times: "There has never been a case like this before. The victims of this vaccine have an incurable and lifelong condition and will require extensive medication."Source: International Business Times
