Government Healthcare Propaganda versus The Truth (Seniors Vaccine Edition)

From a Center for Disease Control flyer:
If you’re 65 years or older, getting a flu shot is the best way to protect yourself and those around you from flu.

From US News & World (my highlight):

USA Today reports that, overall, the vaccine was only 56 percent effective in terms of cutting the need for influenza-related medical visits. Specifically for folks age 65 and older, the vaccine was only 9 percent effective against this season's most prevalent flu strain, H3N2. "Everyone at CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices meeting was scratching their heads over this," William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University's School of Medicine in Nashville, told USA Today.


  1. I don't get the shot. I'm generally healthy. If I get sick I'll let my body do what it's supposed to do and fight it off and I'll be better for it in the future.

  2. I find that flu is a great weight loss program!!

    1. And probably healthier than a lot of programs out there.

  3. I guess the money paid to the drug companies producing the drugs will be paid back for manufacturing worthless junk, right?

  4. It's easy to get the flu on the government sanctioned low-fat, high-carb diet; not so on the anti-government low-carb, high-fat version.

  5. The shots contain mercury. Better to take a good Vitamin D3, K2, and plenty of C. You wont get sick.

  6. The every Saturday scene of the 'nurse' in the pharmacy area of the grocery store giving out vaccine shots to the oblivious old people is kind of sickening in light of these facts.

    I'd say something to them all but it would never sink in and I'd probably get arrested, and on top of all that, the old people would likely resent me for butting into something that's really none of my business.

    I don't pity them. I pity their children and grand children they pump full of these shots and worse.

    They Really Do love the government more than thier own children,... more than themselves, even.

  7. Let us hope that government doesn't someday "mandate" that we all must get the shot
