From commercials, to TV shows and bill boards, you can’t miss the rush to propagandize flu vaccines for pregnant mothers, children and the elderly every fall. Not only does the CDC admit flu shots don’t work, but there is absolutely no evidence that any influenza vaccine prevents the flu any more than a placebo. Here are five myths to be aware of before deciding to submit yourself or your loved one to flu vaccines.
Not a single scientist, immunologist, infectious disease specialist or medical doctor has ever been able to establish a scientific foundation for the vaccination of infants or pregnant women, yet every year just like clock work, western populations are heavily bombarded by flu vaccine propaganda. In the last few years some media outlets have begun reporting the reality flu vaccines are not effective for circulating strains.
One study led by researchers at the School of Public Health and the University of Georgia, explored the determinants of trust in flu vaccines among adults, including trust in its efficacy and in the vaccine production process. The authors stressed the utmost importance of enhancing trust in the flu vaccine and vaccine process which appears to being failing specific demographics.
Trust is failing because of lack of scientific governance not science itself. More vaccine skeptics are challenging how research is prioritized and funded, how trials are designed and evidence collected and analyzed, which studies get published, and how scientific evidence is used to inform policy decisions. The critics charge scientific institutions with bias say, having financial interests that work against the public interest and it’s working against the pharmaceutical industrial complex as millions now continue to reject the flu vaccine. Influenza vaccination coverage in the United States remains below national targets and racial/ethnic differences persist according to a study in Vaccine.
Behind the scenes, biostatisticians have been a driving force behind the promotion of mass vaccination campaigns. Most of what they term “statistically significant studies” are lacking credibility by any stretch of the imagination that we could refer to as scientific integrity.
