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
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
● 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
● 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:
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.”
