Vaccine efficacy studies “assess and confirm the value of flu vaccination” according to the CDC, who began recording the study results with the 2003-4 flu season. Vaccinations are proving to be legally dangerous and have caused some people to weigh the risks with the benefits. 

The Department Of Justice reported 122 vaccine victims petitioned and filed for vaccination damages in the United States Court of Federal Claims in three months time from February 16 to May 15, 2014. The victims who filed consisted of 40 minors and 82 adults, 78 of those who filed received compensation for their vaccination related injury.

Yet, not even a year later, the CDC reported, “Getting a flu vaccine this season reduced a person’s risk of having to go to the doctor because of flu by 23 percent among people of all ages,” in a report published January 15, 2015.

They acknowledged, “The flu vaccine works best in young, healthy people and is less effective in people 65 and older.” They did not report what less effective means.

If the flu vaccine is 23 percent effective, as the CDC reported, and it is less effective in the elderly, it is bewildering that reported April 19, 2015, “It is important all seniors get the flu vaccine. Get the flu vaccine as soon as it is available in your area. Getting the flu vaccine protects you and prevents you from spreading the flu to your spouse, children, or grandchildren.”

Meanwhile, even though the CDC says the flu vaccine is less effective in the elderly they say, “Flu vaccination can help protect people who are at greater risk of getting seriously ill from flu, like older adults.”

Many people say they would never get the vaccine, others say they wouldn’t risk a winter without it, most healthcare workers are required to be vaccinated or wear a mask or lose their job – but what the studies show is most telling.

In another report on January 14, 2015, the CDC says, “During years when the vaccine match is very good, the benefits of vaccination will vary across the population, depending on characteristics of the person being vaccinated and even, potentially, which vaccine was used.”

When the CDC began analyzing efficacy they said, “Overall estimates for each season have ranged from 10 percent to 60 percent effectiveness in preventing medical visits associated with seasonal influenza illness.”

DSC03960One of the potential dangers noted by Sayer Ji on April 18, 2015 is the flu vaccine antigen is grown on egg, the second most common allergen as reported by FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education). Ji says, “Myelin basic protein is a component of egg whites, which is a part of the sheath that coats your nerves. Of course there’s going to be a potential for some individuals having a reaction where the immune system starts attacking the very lining of their nervous system.”

Ji is an advisory board member of the National Health Federation and founder of In regards to vaccines he says, “It’s a dangerous, unscientific, unproved intervention.”

The number of people injured by vaccines grows every year.

In 1986 a compensation program was started for those injured by vaccination damage. This means manufacturers of vaccinations, including Merck, Wyeth, Lederle, Connaught and GlaxoSmithKline are not liable for damages due to their vaccinations. Pharmaceutical companies collectively told Congress in 1982 they would go out of business if they were sued for damages, resulting in no resolution for biological warfare agents as well as potential pandemic outbreaks.

Congress passed the law making it illegal to sue a drug company for damages received. Since then drug companies have been immune from prosecution regarding vaccinations.

Ji says over 5,000 petitions were submitted claiming vaccinations caused autism.

To determine eligibility and compensation the Vaccine Act requires vaccine-related residual effects to last longer than six months after the vaccination was administered. Injury claims are capped, a person can only be awarded a certain amount potentially including medical and legal expenses, future earnings, and up to $250,000 for damages. If the person dies from the vaccination the death benefit can be up to $250,000.

Ji says since 1986 over 8,000 claims, totaling over $3 billion, have redeemed compensation for vaccination injury. 

Payouts are made from an excise tax of 75 cents collected per vaccination administered. This money goes into the fund for the sole reason of compensating people harmed, disabled for life or die, by vaccinations. 

42 U. S. C. §300aa–22(b)(1) says, “[n]o vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, if the injury or death resulted from side-effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings.”

Meaning damages from vaccinations are an unavoidable mistake.

There are only three possible grounds for liability in the Act: defective manufacturing of the product, warnings and directions are inadequate and design defect.

In 1940 the vaccination schedule included two inoculations for DTP and smallpox. In 2012 the schedule included 49 doses of 14 vaccines, six of which are for the flu before the child turn 6 years of age.

Flu effectiveness studies show

2004-5 overall vaccine effectiveness 10%

2005-6 overall vaccine effectiveness 21%

2006-7 overall vaccine effectiveness 52%

2007-8 overall vaccine effectiveness 37%

2009-10 overall vaccine effectiveness 56%

2010-11 overall vaccine effectiveness 60%

2011-12 overall vaccine effectiveness 47%

2012-13 overall vaccine effectiveness 49%

2013-14 overall vaccine effectiveness 51%

2014-15 overall vaccine effectiveness 19%

More interestingly is the CDC reported the vaccine for the 2014-15 season was the wrong strain for the flu going around. They said the strain “drifted” or “mutated” and wasn’t covered by the vaccine, even though it covered 3-4 strains of the flu.  The evaluated numbers become less prominent when 19% effective exists when the inoculation

does not cover the strain.

Even after they discovered the strain did not cover the flu virus for the year flu expert Joe Bresee from the CDC said, “We are recommending strongly still that people who haven’t been vaccinated get vaccinated. Every year vaccine is the best way to protect yourself against the flu.”

I too am curious about the results from 2008-9, which were omitted from the report. The flu kills 4,00-50,000 people each year. They estimate 159 million flu vaccines were available for the season. At a cost of roughly $35 per vaccine that’s over $5.5 billion per season from just one inoculation.

There are natural ways to stop viruses from multiplying. Elderberries are considered nature’s Tamiflu as it stops the virus from mutating within the body. When you take elderberry you will feel the illness from cells already effected but the progress will go no further. The problem with a lot of elderberry products is they include artificial sweeteners like dextrose and high fructose corn syrup as well as natural flavors, all of which have been proven questionable. Click here for a cleaner Elderberry Syrup.

Rescue Remedy, a Bach Flower Remedy, is the first choice for many people suffering from the cold or flu. Remedies should be taken with four drops under the tongue every 15 minutes until symptoms are gone. Click here for Rescue Remedy.

DSC04303Kraut juice (KJ) is a probiotic drink which many say stops their illness dead in its tracks. When people begin to feel signs of the flu they claim if they take KJ, according to their tolerance level and their symptoms disappear. There are no studies showing the efficacy or probiotic strains, not many scientists desire to spend funds testing fermented cabbage. Click here to learn how to make your own.

Some say Oil of Oregano proves to be anti-viral relieving both the cold and flu. Click here for Oil of Oregano. Cinnamon essential oil also shows to benefit during the cold and flu.
