Citizens are waking up to the dangers of vaccines, even in the face of the biggest propaganda push by Big Pharma in modern times.  Technocrats invent stuff and expect everyone to use their inventions just because they say so. No more. ⁃ TN Editor

Have you gotten your flu shot this year?

If the answer is no – and I’m not getting one! – you’re not alone. A new study finds more than 40 percent of Americans have not been vaccinated and, in fact, don’t plan on it either.

This is despite the warnings, potential dangers, and last year’s record-number of flu deaths. The survey was done by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago

The top three reasons why they didn’t want the shot were: bad side effects; thinking they’ll get the flu from the shot; or thinking it doesn’t work.

Some think the side effects are worse than the flu itself, but that’s just a myth. Usually the only side effect is a sore arm.

It’s also a myth that getting the vaccine gives you the flu. The flu vaccine is inactive and cannot cause the infection. If you do get sick after getting the vaccine, it’s just a coincidence.

And while it is true that the vaccine doesn’t work 100 percent of the time, the benefit is that it lessens the severity. If you do still get the flu you’re 60 percent less likely to need treatment.

Last year’s flu season, keep in mind, was particularly severe. More than 900,000 people were hospitalized and more than 80,000 people died. Many were adults older than 65, but also 180 children died from the flu.

I’m surprised to see Technocracy News & Trends defend the flu shot. Pretty amazed actually. Tell the people that have gotten deathly ill and damaged that the side effects are not as bad as the flu. And don’t spout that the flu shots are effective, they are not. Come on now. Let’s get real.

I have been a supporter for a long time but any more poorly researched pro-vaccine stories and I’m out of here.

I think getting a flu shot is a personal decision. We shouldn’t berate those who want to get the shot or put down those who choose to pass on it. I got a flu shot for 3 years and each time I received the shot, I broke out in a red, bumpy, itchy rash mostly on my legs, and a little on my chest. The rash lasted for about 6-7 months. By the time it was about gone, it was time to get another flu shot. I spent the last year reading a lot about vaccines and especially flu shots.… Read more »
