"New Study Exposes the "60% Effective" Flu Shot as 98.5% Useless"
"A new study in The Lancet Infectious Diseases reveals that the flu vaccine prevents lab confirmed type A or type B influenza in only 1.5 out of every 100 vaccinated adults … but the media is reporting this to mean "60 percent effective." It is estimated that, annually, only about 2.7% of adults get type A or type B influenza in the first place. The study showed that the use of flu vaccines appear to drop this down to about 1.2%. This is a roughly 60% drop, but that ignores the fact that the vaccine has no protective health benefit for 97.5% of adults. "

"Death of infant: team starts investigation"
"A high-level team consisting of experts from the Union Ministry of Health and the World Health Organisation (WHO) has started investigating into the sudden death of a 58-day-old baby at Vithura near here on Thursday... The infant, Ansi, daughter of Shabeer and Shajila, had been administered the vaccine on December 14 at the Vithura Community Health Centre (CHC). She was brought dead around 9 a.m. to the Vithura CHC."

"Infant dies, vaccine scare hits Kerala"
"A 58-day-old baby born to Sabeer and Shajitha of Vithura was given the pentavalent vaccine at the Vithura Community Centre on Wednesday morning. The parents claimed that the infant developed fever in the night and was rushed to the hospital. The doctors said that it was a normal fever. But on Thursday, the baby was found unconscious and was rushed to the hospital where it was declared dead."

"Swine Flu Vaccine Dangers Exposed"
"Interestingly, a Canadian study found that those who received a seasonal flu shot in 2008 were as much as 274% more likely to get H1N1 than those who elected not to get the shot. Referencing this study, health columnist Mike Adams says the seasonal flu vaccine is only effective in 1.5% of the adults who are injected with it. (2) That is a pretty sad number. What’s even more sad is the fact that the swine flu vaccine that was hyped as being imperative to saving lives was just as ineffective. (3) Not only are these vaccines ineffective, but they can lead to some very serious side effects that make them more dangerous than getting the actual flu."

"Flu jab gave our six-year-old son narcolepsy: Boy slept for up to 19 HOURS a day after reaction to vaccine"
"The parents of a schoolboy who was struck down with narcolepsy after receiving a flu vaccine, said the Government should have carried out more tests before issuing the drug. Josh Hadfield, 6, lost muscle control and started sleeping for up to 19 hours every day just three weeks after getting the swine flu vaccine Pandemrix. He would fall asleep up to every five minutes - even when he was walking, eating and swimming - and suffer sudden bouts of cataplexy (loss of muscle tone) when he laughed. "

"Gianotti-Crosti Syndrome Following Novel Influenza"
"Gianotti-Crosti syndrome (GCS) is a self-limited, papulovesicular exanthem with a symmetrical distribution on the hands, feet and faces of children between 2 and 6 years. GCS is usually associated with viral infections or immunization, but the pathogenesis remains controversial1. A 7-year-old boy presented with a 2-day history of asymptomatic symmetrical monomorphic papules of the face and extensor surfaces of the extremities (Fig. 1). The lesions had appeared 5 days after a single 15-ìg dose of a novel influenza A (H1N1) vaccine (Greenflu-SⓇ, Korean Green Cross Corporation, Seoul, Korea).... However, clinicians should be aware that GCS could be a possible adverse reaction associated with the novel vaccine against the virus strain A/California/07/2009 H1N1. "

"Why does my mule have a bad reaction to the tetanus shot?"
"I have a nine-year-old mule that gets severe reaction to the tetanus shot. He becomes very stiff and can hardly walk. The first time he received his yearly immunizations the vet gave them all in one shot, so we were uncertain which serum he was reacting to. The next year we gave them separately and found that it is the tetanus that he reacts to. Is this normal, and should I continue to give it to him yearly? I gave him Bute the other times and he has always recovered, but the reaction makes me nervous."

"Vaccines for kids shirked in eight states "
"Reasons for skipping school shots vary. Some parents doubt that the vaccines are essential. Others fear vaccines are risky. Some find it easier to check a box opting out than getting the shots and taking care of the required paperwork. Still others are ambivalent, believing in older vaccines but questioning newer shots against, say, chickenpox. Some parents worry about the number of shots. By the time most kids are 6, they'll have been jabbed with a needle about two dozen times - with many of those shots given in infancy. The cumulative effect of those shots hasn't been studied thoroughly, some parents say."

"43% of Americans Risked Their Brain Health for This - Did You? (comment)"
"The CDC states that the annual flu vaccine is the "best" way to avoid catching the seasonal flu, but what many fail to realize is that there's virtually NO valid scientific evidence to support it, in either its effectiveness or its safety. This is particularly true for key target groups for which the CDC says the flu shot is most important, like seniors, children and pregnant women! Again and again, the Cochrane Database Review—which is the gold standard for assessing the scientific evidence for the effectiveness of commonly used medical interventions—has concluded that flu vaccines do not appear to have any measurable benefit either for children, adults, or seniors.

"JIB highlights aluminium's potential role in neurodegenerative diseases"
"Aluminium's potential role in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and cancer, specifically breast cancer, and the potential role for aluminium adjuvants in vaccine-related adverse effects are spotlighted in the latest issue of the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry (JIB)...The papers cover the full range of the natural sciences though with special emphasis upon the inorganic chemistry of aluminium's interface with living systems including humans. There is a special emphasis upon the latter, human exposure to aluminium, in this selection of papers including research detailing the influence of aluminium at the molecular, cellular, organ and whole body level. The subjects of aluminium's potential role in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and cancer, specifically breast cancer, are re-visited, while there are also papers which highlight a potential role for aluminium adjuvants in vaccine-related adverse effects."

"New York Times Reviews The Greater Good Movie Tells Vaccine-Injured Children to Drop Dead"
"Personally, having seen “The Greater Good,” I find it hard to dismiss anything it brings up regarding vaccine damage. The review featured a photo of Gabi Swank but not a word is said about her in the story. Nothing about her being a varsity and competitive All-Star cheerleader, gymnast, Honor Roll student involved in leadership at her high school—until she was vaccinated. The National Vaccine Information Center told us what happened to Gabi as a result of the Gardasil vaccine. It’s clear her health was destroyed, something her doctor also talked about on the film. The stories of damage and even death from vaccinations shown on this film don’t seem to bother Catsoulis. Instead she concentrated on her definition of the term “greater good.”"

"UK Girl in "Waking Coma" After Cervical Cancer Vaccine"
"Britain's Daily Mail reported on November 21 that 13-year-old Lucy Hinks has been left debilitated, likely from injections of the Cervarix cervical cancer vaccine, GlaxoSmithKline’s version of Gardasil, which is manufactured by Merck. She was vaccinated along with her classmates at Wigton's Nelson Thomlinson School in Cumbria. The teenager — who has not opened her eyes in seven weeks, and can neither walk nor talk — requires constant care, and sleeps 23 hours a day. Her mother, Pauline, said, “'I'd not wish what we've been through on anyone. I've not seen the whites of Lucy's eyes for weeks and nobody can tell us when it will turn. I could put up with the constant sleep. I believe her body needs it. But it's the fact that to me she's in a waking coma, with no treatment.”"

"A case of lichen planus following tdap vaccination. "
"Lichen planus (LP) is an inflammatory dermatosis of unknown etiology that is primarily associated with liver disease. Recently, there have been several reports of LP developing after administration of the hepatitis B, influenza and combined MMR-DTaP-IPV vaccines. Here we report the first case of LP developing on the lower extremities of an otherwise healthy adult male after administration of the Tdap vaccine. We present this case to draw awareness to this observation in light of recently updated Tdap vaccination recommendations."

"Flu vaccine less effective than once thought: report"
"Doctors have long extolled the flu shot's importance, prompting many to wince through the needle every year. But a new analysis has cast doubt on the effectiveness of that annual ritual. Vaccines provide a moderate shield against pesky influenza viruses but that protection can get weaker or disappear entirely during some seasons, according to a report published in The Lancet."

"Lab finds HPV DNA in Blood of Gardasil Recipient 2 Years Post-Vaccination"
"SANE Vax Inc. contracted with an independent lab to test for contamination and found HPV recombinant DNA (rDNA) in 13 vaccine vials. The Gardasil vials with different lot numbers were from New Zealand, Australia, Spain, Poland, France and three states in the U.S. 100% of the samples tested positive for the presence of the genetically modified HPV DNA."

"Flu vaccine statistics don’t add up"
"The treatment group comprised adults who were vaccinated with a trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine. According to the study, 1.18 per cent got the flu. The difference between these two groups (2.73 – 1.18) is 1.5 people out of 100. In other words, the flu vaccine did nothing for 98.5 per cent of adults in the studies. So where did the media get 60 per cent effective? It’s called lying with statistics. First you take the 2.73 per cent in the control group who got flu and you divide that figure into the 1.18 per cent of the treatment group who got the flu. This gives you 0.43. You then say that 0.43 is 43 per cent of 2.73 and claim that the vaccine results in a 57 per cent decrease in flu infections. This becomes the 60 per cent effectiveness claim."

"Indian vaccine market reaches $ 900 million"
"India has made a significant contribution to Vaccine development. Speaking at the opening ceremony of International Vaccine Symposium here at Surajkund today, Dr Ashwani Kumar, Minister of State for Science and Technology, and Earth Sciences said, India produces 60 percent of the world’s vaccines and account for 60-80 percent of annual UN vaccine purchases. Several Indian vaccine manufacturers are WHO pre-qualified. The current Indian vaccine market is estimated at around $ 900 million and targets $4.6 billion revenue by 2017."

"To one Iowa mother, Bachmann decries ‘the ravages’ of HPV vaccine"
"“Michele, on behalf of myself and a lot of other mothers that have a child that’s sick from the Gardasil vaccine, I would like to thank you for the attention that you brought to it,” she said. “This is my daughter, Jessica, and she’s been sick for three years now from that vaccine." ... Later that night, on Fox News, Bachmann related the story of another mother she met, suggesting the immunization has caused dangerous, permanent side effects. Bachmann’s statements sparked major criticism among many in the scientific community. In August, the National Academy of Sciences had released an analysis suggesting that Gardasil has caused a severe, whole-body allergic reaction called anaphylaxis in a small number of immunized children. It can be life-threatening."
