RE-APPROVING FLU MIST?
PROOF OF JUST HOW DESPERATE THE "FLU VAXXERS" HAVE BECOME
"The decision will be a relief for MedImmune, which makes FluMist, and for people in public health who see this vaccine as an important part of the response to both annual flu outbreaks and the rare but often more dangerous flu pandemics. There had been mounting concern the company, a division of AstraZeneca, would abandon the vaccine if it could not find a way back to the U.S. market. AstraZeneca signaled it will ask CDC if its purchase through its Vaccines for Children Program can be increased to include FluMist for next winter."
Isn't that special! This way your hard-earned tax dollars get to fund a vaccine that in a group of poorly-functioning vaccines, stands out above the rest for being truly terrible (HERE). After discussing how tough it is to GUESS WHICH THREE OR FOUR FLU STRAINS of the thousands circulating should go into next year's vaccine, Professor of Pediatrics at Hofstra, Henry Bernstein, was quoted as saying, "I’m a little concerned about whether it would be interpreted that we’re compromising our interpretation of the science.... Branswell showed that at least some of the others believed likewise. "A number of members of the committee expressed concern that restoring FluMist to the recommended vaccines list before there is evidence to prove the problem has been fixed could further undermine the battered reputation of flu vaccines, especially if it turns out that the change MedImmune made did not improve the vaccine’s performance." Concerned? Maybe. But not enough to vote it down.
Although the SCARE TACTICS used to coerce people into receiving annual flu shots continue to work on some level; in similar fashion to "The Boy Who Cried Wolf," people are beginning to see the bigger picture. The result is that the reputation of flu vaccines is taking the kind of beating that makes the word "battered" look to be the week's biggest understatement. In other words, the fear factor is shrinking. Throw into the mix that articles like Branswell's, whether knowingly or unknowingly, expose this debate for what it really is --- a debate about dollars. It's no wonder increasing numbers of people are becoming disenchanted, seeing the shot for the scam it really is. By the way, this is largely what Cochrane, the most respected and elite of the mainstream medical organizations that meta-analyze medical data and research, believes as well (they published their new recommendations for flu vaccines earlier this month HERE).
It's also why growing numbers of people are realizing that EVIDENCE-BASED MEDICINE the way it's currently being done cannot be trusted. And while I did not have time, I promise that if you researched the people on this board who actually voted for FluMist to be reinstated, you would likely find financial COI that looks suspiciously similar to THE COI I showed you a month ago concerning TAMIFLU (for the record, Dr. Bernstien voted not to have FluMist restored to FDA approval).
