3 Things Doctors Don’t Tell You About the Flu Shot


It is that time of year again when adults and children alike are contracting the flu.  Many doctors are recommending that parents give their children the optional flu shot, telling them that children are dying from the influenza.  There are three things the doctors are not telling us about the flu shots:

1. Thimerosol

The flu vaccine contains thimerosol – a mercury-based preservative.   Thimerosol is no longer being used as a preservative in the mandatory vaccinations, due to its known side effects.

Thimerosol is known to impair neurological and immune systems.  It contributes to Autism, Alzheimers, ALS, MS, Epilepsy and the worst diseases.  A study in Human and Experimental Toxicology reported that there were 590 fetal-loss reports per 1 million pregnant women vaccinated (or 1 per 1,695) during the 2009-2010 flu season.  The adverse events were tracked by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or VAERS database.

Other possible adverse effects from the flu vaccine documented in medical literature include:

  • Febrile seizures
  • Narcolepsy
  • Asthma
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome

2. Harmful Ingredients

The flu shot also contains MSG, Formaldehyde and other harmful cancer-causing chemicals, antibiotics and allergens like polysorbate-80 that causes infertility.

3. Flu Symptoms Following Injection

Even though we are told that the flu vaccine does not cause flu symptoms in recipients of the shot, there have been thousands of examples to the contrary.  The most well publicized case was Dr. Oz administering the shot to Piers Morgan with this year’s flu shot.  Within days, Morgan developed flu-like symptoms.  Widespread outbreaks of the flu-like symptoms have been reported across the U.S. in those who have received this year’s flu shot.

Last week, one of my clients sent me this email.  I have changed the names of her children.  Sarah, a newborn and Adam, a toddler, both received two doses of the flu shot, which is what children ‘require.’

‘On Monday, the kids were given the second dose of the flu shot.  On Thursday, Adam spiked a fever, which progressively climbed up to 103 and for the next 72 hours, ranged mostly between 101 and 103.  Sunday night, right before fever broke, he started coughing.  It was a horrible barky, dry cough, and he suffered from fits of coughing when in bed.  Our doctor put him on a puffer which we did not use.  Monday and Tuesday, he had a full blown cold, lots of congestion, mucus just pouring out his nose constantly (it was like a river), watering eyes like he was crying and lots of sneezing.  He was better within 10 days of having the shot.  Sarah has experienced similiar symptoms but also had projectile vomiting – her cough seemed to trigger her gag reflex – and so much mucus, she couldn’t sleep properly.

This mother had contacted me after the first dose of the shot, describing similar symptoms.  After that dose, the children were sick and miserable for 3 weeks.  It wasn’t until the children had the second shot, that their mother realized it was the flu shot that had paralyzed their household for so many weeks.

On January 25, 2013, the world-renowned Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stated that the current flu vaccine is largely ineffective at preventing the flu.  There are many effective natural remedies for eliminating the flu, if a child does contract it; please refer to my previous blog on the subject.  Now that you see that the risks from acquiring the shot are greater than the risk of contracting the flu, please think twice before asking for the flu shot.

    I took the flu shot only once in my life and developed the worst flu I have ever had a day or two later. I will not get the flu shot anymore even though I have my doctor trying to scare me into it by telling me how high risk I am since I am pregnant and how pregnant women have been dying from the flu. I will not be giving it my kids either. We use homeopathic drops which seem to do a great job for us 🙂
