Saying Americans don’t trust the flu shot is like saying Americans don’t trust politicians. Of course we don’t…We’ve witnessed their deceit too many times!
Just like politicians lie every time they open their mouths, the CDC is full of bull every time it opens its collective trap — especially when it launches into its annual panic attack over how THIS will be the worst flu season yet.
I mean, how many times have we heard that?
And, of course, the “worst yet” never materializes, even as vaccination rates tumble. So I’m not surprised at all by a new poll that finds less than half of Americans “strongly believe” in the flu shot — just 43 percent!
And according to the poll, a THIRD of us actually believe it WON’T DO A THING to prevent infection.
Yet the mainstream just can’t wrap their vaccine-addled brains around this one.
“Vaccination can provide as much as a 60 to 70 percent guarantee of protection against the flu,” Dr. Len Horovitz, a pulmonary specialist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, told WebMD. “Why wouldn’t everyone want as much protection as possible?”
But Horovitz is repeating an old lie — and shame on him, because he has to know it, too.
Stats show that even in the worst years, you have barely a 3 percent chance of catching the flu — whether you get vaccinated or not.
And here’s the real humdinger: folks who actually get the flu shot STILL regularly come down with flu. That’s because each year’s vaccine is nothing more than a guess about which strains are circulating — and Big Pharma gets it wrong all the time.
Some years, the flu vaccine failed for nine out of every 10 seniors who got it.
Anyone who thinks that’s “effective” needs to have their head examined!
If you want what’s truly effective, get back to basics: Wash your hands, and be careful out in public.
In addition, load up on immune-boosting nutrients such as Vitamin D, which is 800 percent more effective than the flu shot — and unlike the shot, the sunshine vitamin can even prevent colds, too.
