Researchers are making noises about a possible new pandemic. One or more variations of bird flu. And of course, in all these ramp-ups, the bottom line is: get vaccinated.
The so-called pandemics train you to obey, so you’ll take all the shots they recommend for every disease, like a good little muffin.
“Seasonal flu? Pandemic flu? Meningitis? Hepatitis? Whooping cough? Measles? Polio? Martian Traveler’s Disease? Venusian Restless Leg? Gimme everything you’ve got. Inject me! Protect me!”
Here are few items to consider when the pandemic professionals start grinding out media warnings.
How many confirmed cases of the disease in question are there, at that moment? Ten? Fifty? A thousand? Out of a population of eight billion?
For example, as Peter Doshi pointed out in BMJ online, when the big push on Swine Flu started, in the spring of 2009, there were only 20 purported cases of Swine Flu. Twenty. (BMJ Online, v.339, b3471)
Only 20 years ago, 32 million doses of influenza vaccine were available in the United States on an annual basis. Today, the total has skyrocketed to 135 million doses.
Do numbers lie? Many other researchers have come to the following conclusions:
When read carefully, the CDC acknowledges that studies finding any perceived reduction in death rates may be due to the "healthy-user effect" — the tendency for healthier people to be vaccinated more than less-healthy people. The only randomized trial of influenza vaccine in older people found no decrease in deaths. "This means that influenza vaccines are approved for use in older people despite any clinical trials demonstrating a reduction in serious outcomes,"
That the vaccine doesn't match the strain of flu going around is another consideration:
Even when the vaccine is closely matched to the type of influenza that's prevalent, which doesn't happen every year, randomized, controlled trials of healthy adults found that vaccinating between 33 and 100 people resulted in one less case of influenza.
Parents would do well to research all of the studies available before deciding if the benefits truly outweigh the risks.
A study released in February found that the flu shot was only 9 percent effective in protecting seniors against the 2012-2013 season's most virulent influenza bug. What's even worse is that small children who are given the flu vaccine get no protection from the disease. "The government also says that every baby over the age of six months should have a vaccine, and they know it contains a dose of mercury that is toxic to the brain," says Dr. Blaylock. "They also know the studies have shown that the flu vaccine has zero — zero — effectiveness in children under five."
If you want to know the truth about ANYTHING that is being aggressively pushed on the public, follow the money.
Why do drug companies push the flu vaccine? "It's all about money," says Dr. Blaylock. "Vaccines are a pharmaceutical company's dream. They have a product that both the government and the media will help them sell, and since vaccines are protected, they can't be sued if anyone has a complication."

Honestly, I look at it from a manufacturing point of view, and that is, they can't make enough doses for everyone just in the United States, let alone around the world. If you didn't want the shot, all you have to do is get to the back of the line, they'll run out of vaccine long before they get to you. Its a problem they're currently trying to solve. One, it takes a while to get a viable
vaccine out to be used, and then once they get one, then they have to make enough for everyone, which they currently cannot do.
Talk about inducing panic only to heighten the panic when people find out there is not enough to go around, if one of these epidemics ever gets rolling.
