Flu Vax Facts YOU Should Know

● As many as 132 million doses of flu vaccine could be produced for the 2007-2008 flu season from 5 different vaccine manufacturers. 103 million doses were distributed by November 2, 2007.

● Studies show that flu vaccines do not prevent the flu in both children and the elderly. To determine the value of flu vaccines to children, Tom Jefferson, MD, and colleagues at the Cochrane Collaboration, an international organization that evaluates medical research, looked at over a thousand studies. They selected 14 high-quality clinical trials in which vaccinated children had been compared with unvaccinated children. The combined results of these 14 trials were reported in the British journal The Lancet (2/26/05). Their conclusion: “We recorded no convincing evidence that vaccines can reduce mortality, [hospital] admissions, serious complications, and community transmission of influenza.” 
● The CDC now recommends flu vaccines for babies 6-23 months because they tend to suffer more complications once they get the flu, however no evidence supports the recommendation. The Cochrane reviewers found that vaccines had little effect on bronchitis, ear infections, and hospitalizations, compared with the babies given placebo vaccines. In short, the CDC recommendations are irresponsible given the fact that the only two studies that involved babies found no benefit and little is known about adverse effects of these vaccines for babies.
● The review follows on the heels of a study that looked at three decades' worth of data and found that vaccines for the elderly are not as effective as previously thought. And contrary to conventional medical wisdom, vaccines do not reduce flu-related deaths in elderly people.
● More than 70% of this year's flu vaccine supply will contain 25 micrograms of mercury, which means there is not enough mercury-free flu vaccine available for children under the age of 3 and pregnant women.
● MedImmune will be producing 7 million doses of FluMist, their thimerosal-free live attenuated influenza virus nasal vaccine (LAIV) that was approved this flu season for children as young as two years old.
● FluMist recipients should avoid contact with immuno-compromised for at least 21 days due to viral shedding of the live influenza viruses. FluMist’s most prevalent side effects are runny nose and nasal congestion. It should be noted that over 60% of the U.S. population would be considered “chemically immuno-compromised”.
● The CDC's cost for a mercury-containing vial of flu vaccine is $9.71. A comparable mercury-free package (each with 10 doses) costs $12.02 per dose.
● Thimerosal (49.6% ethyl mercury) has never been tested for safety and no proof exists that it is safe. On the contrary, there are thousands of documents in the literature that discuss its extreme toxicity, starting with Thimerosal's own Material Safety Data Sheet that, amongst other things, states:
        "Exposure Guidelines: Thimerosal - no known occupational limits established... Exposure to mercury in utero and in children can cause mild to severe mental retardation and mild to severe motor coordination impairment... Target Organ Effects: Mercury - Nervous system effects (insomnia, tremor, anorexia, weakness, headache), liver effects (jaundice, digestive effects (hypermotility, diarrhea)."
● The Centers for Disease Control released a study in Pediatrics that cited a correlation between Thimerosal-containing vaccines and both "tics" and "language delay" in children.
● On Friday, October 27, 2006, the Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD) filed an amended complaint in U.S. Federal Court, disputing the FDA response it received on September 26, 2006, defending the use of mercury in medicine. CoMeD is asking the court to compel the FDA to: comply with the law, follow existing regulations, and provide proof of the safety and efficacy of mercury in drugs. The lawsuit was originally filed in August 2006 because the FDA had failed to answer the issues raised in a CoMeD citizen petition (FDA Docket: 2004P-0349), filed on Wednesday, August 4, 2004, by representatives from CoMeD. Of concern is that mercury, which is second only to plutonium in toxicity, remains in at least 45 different prescribed and over-the-counter drugs (according to the FDA), including various eye ointments, ear solutions, nasal sprays, vaccines, biologics, and perhaps most importantly, in flu vaccines currently being administered to millions of pregnant women, children, and the elderly.
● The record 132 million flu vaccines produced for the 2007-2008 flu season has CDC officials worried they’ll have more vaccines than people willing to receive them. The previous record of 115 million vaccines produced for the 2006-2007 flu season left 12.5 million unused vaccines at the end of the season that had to be disposed of [in a hazardous waste dump??] CDC officials would like to prevent a repeat of that experience and promoted Nov. 26 – Dec. 2 as “National Influenza Vaccination Week.”

One can only imagine what these ingredients might do to an infant whose body organs are all "premature" (still developing). No toxicological tests have ever been performed on the vaccines themselves, and no trials prior to licensing have ever been performed on infants.
