Universal Flu Shot

Flu panicBy Teresa Conrick

Is this the answer to the issue of flu?  Leave us a comment and share your thoughts.

From Scientific American:

Key facts -

-  If all goes according to plan, the annual flu shot protects about 60 percent of vaccinated people.

-   Last month Bill Gates announced his foundation will be earmarking up to $12 million to advance such work

-   Sen. Edward Markey (D–Mass.) introduced a bill in February that would provide $1 billion in government funding for a universal flu vaccine.

-   The White House also gave a nod to the universal flu vaccine; its Office of Science and Technology Policy tweeted in March it is “closer than ever.”

-   “It’s a scientific challenge because there are still so many things we don’t know,” says Anthony Fauci, director of the NIAID. And even if such a vaccine were developed, a perfect inoculation that protects against all flu types, is “unattainable,” he says.

-    The more we learn the less we understand,” says Michael Osterholm, director of the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Diseases Research and Policy.

-   Moreover, beyond clinical trials and regulatory hurdles there are also a vast array of technical roadblocks ahead, which include making these shots profitable for developers yet affordable for consumers and deciding who should receive these inoculations—and when.

-   Researchers are also realizing the first flu virus we are exposed to in life may play a larger role in immunity than previously thought, shaping our response to all flu viruses we encounter in the future—a concept often referred to as imprinting.

-   Earlier this month the National Institutes of Health announced one experimental vaccine, M-001, is headed into phase II clinical trials.

-   M-001 consists of nine epitopes—short stretches of viral protein—that were carefully selected because they are shared across many different influenza strains. 

-   the M-001 formulation was chosen because these tiny epitopes spark both T cell and B cell immune responses.

-   The M-001 vaccine approach is exciting, says Kathleen Sullivan, chief of the Division of Allergy and Immunology at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, who was not involved in the work. 

-    An adult with decades of immune responses to various flu strains may not respond as well as an infant to a universal flu vaccine because the adult’s immune system has already been primed to other types of influenza, Fauci notes. With this question in mind, researchers are hoping to launch more studies of our early-life imprinting.

-   NIAID put out a call last month for proposals to enroll pregnant women and their infants in long-term studies to see how flu strains circulating in a given birth year, vaccination status and natural infections influence flu immunity.

-    Eventually, Fauci says, he expects “we will go through universal influenza vaccine 1.0, 2.0 and so on that will protect against different viruses.”

That's a lot of key fact with a lot of key people.  Just looking at the issue of mechanism, at the science -- in this increasing age of autoimmunity, shouldn't there be a concern for tinkering with both B and T cells, at the very minimum?

Molecular Mimicry as a Mechanism of Autoimmune  Disease  - "Unfortunately, there are a variety of mechanisms including molecular mimicry, bystander activation, exposure of cryptic antigens, and superantigens by which pathogens can aid in the expression of an autoimmune disease [1621]. Inflammation induced by exposure to a foreign antigen can lead to autoimmune diseases from cross-reactive epitopes (molecular mimicry). These epitopes are segments of foreign antigens which, when presented to either T or B cells in the context of the MHC, can activate CD4+or CD8+ T cells. The induction of the immune response and subsequent proinflammatory cytokine release is critical for clearance of a virus or bacteria. However, a sustained proinflammatory response against specific host tissues can occur when there is sequence or structural homology between foreign antigens and self-antigens, termed molecular mimicry"......................

Jeannette, You've 'hit the nail on the head' when you stated the complete lack of 'vaccinated versus unvaccinated' trials for vaccines that are virtually non-existent.

There is exactly ONE published* trial in Hong Kong, in Clinical Infectious Diseases, June 2012, by authors Cowling et al., that concludes those children vaccinated versus non-vaccinated has 4.4x (times) other non-influenza infections. Whereas flu infections' difference was not notable.

Here in the U.S., such non-vaccinated trials, except those using all the same toxic excipients (ingredients) as without the viral antigens, are NEVER DONE. The criminals at FDA, CDC, NIH, etc., conducting their fraudulent "trials" are unforgivable.

*By my memory I seem to recall the above Cowling et al. Hong Kong study was indeed cited here on Age of Autism in the recent past.

Thanks for you terrific efforts over the last many years.

Jeannette Bishop

I love ("love") how they float "universal flu shot" as if one should feel free to think one shot will protect you from all flu-like illness, maybe for all time.

Then in the fine print (the last paragraph) you read how they will need to explore how many strains these 9 epitopes will "protect" you against (what about exploring how much molecular mimicry and autoimmunity they might trigger?). "Eventually, Fauci says, he expects 'we will go through universal influenza vaccine 1.0, 2.0 and so on that will protect against different viruses.'”

IOW you'll likely be getting a battery of shots, probably every 4-5 years, or you might spread them out so you're getting one or two "universal flu shots" every year (and they'll likely be recommended for infants first and foremost so, vaccine court'll have pharma, I mean, you covered) and if you come down with something, I guess you're just supposed to assume you needed to boost that particular shot a little quicker (or some unvaccinated person breezed by and ruined your vaccines' effectiveness).

I also "love" how they talk about the unfortunate adult acquired natural immunity that might lessen the effectiveness of this vaccine, so I guess that is telling adults not to expect too much, and to be glad that infants will benefit so much more once it's first studied in adults....

"But at this stage of testing volunteers will not just be receiving the M-001 shot. They will also receive the standard seasonal flu shot as a booster—fortifying their defenses against flu strains circulating at the time. Yet the hope is that M-001 might eventually prove a strong stand-alone defense—making the seasonal flu vaccine obsolete. The M-001 vaccine approach is exciting, says Kathleen Sullivan, chief of the Division of Allergy and Immunology at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, who was not involved in the work. 'The conceptualization of this vaccine is really innovative.'

"In the current phase II trial, which will occur across several U.S. institutions and will be led by Robert Atmar at Baylor College of Medicine, there will be up to 120 healthy adult volunteers randomly placed into two groups. The first group will get a shot of M-001 whereas the other group will get a placebo. Then, several weeks later, the first group will get another shot of M-001 and the second group will get another placebo. Finally, at day 172, both groups will receive a third shot—the seasonal flu vaccine. Blood will be periodically drawn from both groups to evaluate their immune responses to the experimental vaccine (or placebo) and the seasonal vaccine. The researchers plan to have some results within two years."

I wonder what the "placebo" will be? But if both groups get the seasonal flu shot, no worries! They'll all probably get sick (once all non-influenza-like adverse events are determined to be unrelated) at about the same rate this year, and then possibly those with vaccine compromised cellular immunity might do worse than those "vaccinated" with the "universal vaccine" the next year and voila, the vaccine worked (compared to the old vaccine and whatever placebo).

They don't dare study this vaccine against a non-vaccinating group!

go Trump

Mr. Gates once said no one would ever need more than 8 megs of RAM and also he did not think the internet would be that big a deal...

He is now a vaccine expert.

Liz V

I can only hope that Trump is not fooled by Gates. That he is preparimg behind the scenes. What utter madness. I can't believe the masses that buy into this nonsense. Where are all the thinking people in this world, just here at AoA?

Gary Ogden

I've just been reading an excerpt from Seymour M. Hersh's just-published memoir, "Reporter," in the current Harper's, and it reminded me of Dan, strikingly so. Sometimes the best journalists are also the best writers of journalism. Dan seemed to get better as time passed. My wish? A book of all Dan's pieces which appeared here.

david m burd

Laura Hayes, First(!), your relentless effort to inform I can only emulate on a much smaller scale.

As to the incredibly toxic flu shot going into 6-month babies (and again at 7 months, every year thereafter): Even worse, while in their mother's womb their development is terribly altered/irrevocably harmed because of U.S. pregnant women are conned into both the flu shot containing Thimerosal, and, the DTap shot for 6 years now coerced on women while pregnant with its toxic brew.

I'm sure you already know this, but I want others here on AoA to perhaps hear it for the first time.

As I said earlier, there can be no forgiveness for the hideous, unaccountable Leaders at CDC, NIH, et al. that push toxicity-proven vaccines on our seniors, babies, and every one of our family members.

bob moffit

I am sure it is just a coincidence .. but .. the birth rate in the United States showed a serious decline of women between 15 and 44 years old .. 62 per 1,000 women .. approximately 3.2 million down from average of 5 million or so .. with the biggest decline in females 15 to 20's.

I say coincidence because the decline appears to have begun as the HPV vaccines began wide use in our country. Also coincidently .. Bill Gates is among those who have given "population control" a high priority is probably THRILLED to see birth rate decline so rapidly since HPV introduced.

If I remember correctly, I think her name Dr Diane Harper .. questioned the potential consequences the HPV would have on future fertility of adolescents receiving the vaccine ..

As is often said on these pages ... WHEN WILL THE MADDNESS END.

annie

I really hope Gates' ridicule of Donald Trump is the catalyst for the Trump administration to mainstream the scientists who not only know the difference between HIV and HPV but who can explain to Gates what an immune activation event is.

Benedetta

Well; hump.
So, they are wanting to look at pregnant women and babies and seeing what viruses are circulating around in those formative years. and their effect on a developing immune systems. Sounds like a good thing. Gaining knowledge has always been a good thing for the human race, wasn't it. I mean splitting the atom got us - well it is all how we use it, right? These are questions of biology not chemistry though, and commensal relationships would take the mind of God to understand, but always a good try, right?

There will always be microbes, and empty niches are never a good thing waiting to be filled with opportunists. So, the better choice of putting the money some where would be studying the Immune systems, and why the immune system fails, or why, how it works at all; especially in this cancer epidemic we are in.

But it is a good thing to gain knowledge isn't it?

If only I did not wonder just how mentally stable is the human race as a whole entity? So many hating Trump is just really strange, and the struggle to get rid of him is beyond reason. On the other hand is it because of people like Gates that do exist? Gates does not respect Trump or he would never have brought up HIV, and the Gardasil viruses with some what of a smirk. I know from my own husband who was very successful in his field, he never minded asking silly, or well known questions. He asked often; till I got his number that he wanted to know what others knew.

We have people on the lower pyramid of power that are not extraordinary; the real losers and it is now common for them to get ahold of any kind of weapon; be it guns, knives, machetes, cars, bombs, fertilizers, diesel fuel, rental trucks, and go for any soft targets. Some even using the bodies of their own children to carry bombs to their targets. We are one sick race.

So what is it like for those on the top of the pyramid of power, are they also sick.
Dr. Offit went off in some tirade that got recorded criticizing people whose only life goal was wanting to reproduce until the sun burns out. What was all that about?

Is the Bible right to mention at it's beginning and then it's end about the mark of Cain, and then the mark of the beast on our foreheads and hands, meaning mental health and neurological diseases. Cain was a murderer too.

At the top of the pyramid (Gates) do they have the mind set liken to some kind of super villain like THANOS; that wants a clean, quick way of just snapping a finger inside a magic glove to make half of the population just vanish. (Yeah, I went to that movie for my son's 32 birthday this past week) My son has a wide chest, and great strength too, he is handsome and looks a lot like Thor, now that Thor is not so blonde, and more red. My son has large eyes that seem to go all the way across his face, and there is a wit there too, very like what Chris displays as Thor. Inspite of that though there is something not right. He was over joyed to be sitting with his parents, watching a movie, and enjoying his popcorn. Great for me, but as any mother I want so much more for him. I would like him to be sitting with his own small son watching a move. That is the way it is suppose to be. I am not going to be here for him in the end of his life; like I am for my own father with Parkinson.

Does those in power just after some kind of Thanos gauntlet as in a cleaner way than that of: Pol Pot's civil war, Hitler's gas chambers, and Stalin's let nature take it course neglect. I bet Gates thought that miscarriage was merciful and easy since he never had one; as in his tetanus vaccine.

--- And why are we so blind to this possibility when it comes to those in power?

I talk to ordinary people that have not watched their children respond to vaccines almost immediately like I did. So I admit it is hard to believe. They have been raised on stories of the shining hero of Jenner willing to risk his own son (?), the hero worship of Salk and Sabin; making a three strains of polio vaccines after the population has been hosed down with DDT, arsenic, lead - Silent Spring kind of stuff.

My little grand nephew gets his annual flu shot even though he has been struggling to speak since his age of babbling. The state of Mississippi had a big, yellow school bus pick up that little teenie weenie guy when he was just three and then four years old to take him to school cause there are not too many of such little guys for the speech, and behavioral therapists to travel to their homes. The state of Mississippi use to do that, and we know that cause that is what they did when this little guy's twin uncles were little and could not talk. The second generation here; me telling them and still they don't believe me.

My little grand nephew this past year was diagnosed as diabetic. He is learning how to manage diabetes. He and his parents just got back from a diabetic camp this past week. I keep telling 'em. It is hard to stand against the medical establishment. Even the Jews did not believe they would ever be put in gas chambers, so sure that they were needed for labor.

I don't think we are at all a logical species.

Well, it seems that the FOR PROFIT VAX industry is laying out it's hopeful goals for future PROFIT$....
$1Billion in tax-payer funds is just seed money to these speculators....
"If it's bad for humanity, Bill Gates is writing a check!" - that's only funny in a sick way, but I'll take any laugh I can get....

Bill Gates killing with kindness

What a joke. I'll never get one and know most won't. Just look
at Bill. He looks 80 and he's mid fifties.

Laura Hayes

Horrific to read that the target of what will no doubt be a catastrophically devastating vaccine is infants...who can’t speak to report symptoms...and whose deaths will be blamed on SIDS and child abuse...but certainly not on the universal flu vaccine it was just callously, haphazardly, and immorally injected with, in conjunction with other vaccines.

“An adult with decades of immune responses to various flu strains may not respond as well as an infant to a universal flu vaccine because the adult’s immune system has already been primed to other types of influenza, Fauci notes. With this question in mind, researchers are hoping to launch more studies of our early-life imprinting.”

We must spread the word of warning to all pregnant women...keep yourselves and your babies away from these criminal vaccine profiteers, their dastardly vaccine products, and their fraudulent vaccine “studies” (where your and your baby’s sudden decline in health, and for some/many, unexpected death, will be emphatically proclaimed as not at all related to the vaccines, new or old).

Loved and appreciated the Bill Gates comment by Diane Shears!

Below are the various U.S. Flu Shots and their excipients (i.e. ingredients). All anybody had to do is put a particular ingredient paired with "toxicity" into a search engine and read how harmful and poisonous and toxic they are, even just topically exposed to human skin, but of course they are INJECTED into infants (year after year, beginning 6 months and ever after, forever, pregnant women, and virtually coerced into senions (age 65+) since 1963 (year after year). The last several decades of ever-higher percentages of babies getting flu shots has resulted with ever-higher babies/kids being hospitalized (data from annual CDC flu records). As to seniors, Alzheimer's emerged in the late 1960's and early 1970's, now having the dubious honor as the 6th highest cause of death in the U.S. BUT, what else should we expect when seniors every year have been conned into taking the flu shot with its yearly input of 25 micrograms of ethylmercury, year after year, as mercury is well known for badly damaging the mitochondria present in every brain cell, including nerve cells. The criminals at CDC and the likes of hideous Dr, Anthony Fauci at NIH can never ber forgiven.

When will the madness end? Dimwits from top to bottom in government and crooks with gobs of money to rake in from poisoning the population.

Diane Shears

Well, it's been said that if it's bad for humanity, Bill Gates is writing the cheque... a statement I tend to agree with.

pharmster

prediction: what will happen is that the universal flu shot will be reported to only be 50% effective. Effective enough to make it mandatory for health care workers and children but ineffective enough so they can continue to sell the old yearly flu vaccine which is also about 50% effective. You will need to take both in the future.

before it hits the market we will see a lot of horror stories in the media, young healthy woman in coma after the flu, man loses leg due to flu complications, tens of thousands die each year from the flu, spanish flu pandemic will be back soon etc.

Of course it will be added to the childhood vaccination schedule.

Later they will discover that the effect will not last long enough and you will need frequent boosters even as an adult. This will lead to vaccine hesitancy which will be addressed by combining the universal flu vaccine with the traditional flu vaccine in an all-in-one shot taken each year unless you are a bad and irresponsible citizen and evil luddite person.

The universal flu vaccine will lead to cross-reactions with brain proteins so a lot of brain damage and autoimmunity ahead.

What a great laugh they are having with us.
Seriously , they are taxing us to maim kill & poison us !
Mass sterilisation for sure.

Why now ? I wonder ? And everybody laughed at Trump (but the sick joke is on them) .

Bill Gates reveals that he had to explain the difference between the HPV virus and HIV to Trump
President Trump asked Bill Gates to clarify the differences at two meetings
'I explained that those were rarely confused with each other', said Mr Gates
Mr Trump was considering a commission to look into the ill effects of vaccines

I'd appreciate the chance to explain to Billy & Mel that W£ know the flu vaccine is complete hoax and fraud. And that you are offing our seniors with this toxicity.

Additionally I would like the chance to explain to Billy & Mellie that rumours abound that HIV has nothing to do with the disease called Aids. So no vaccine necessary (but I doubt he'll listen to anything I have to say or even Luc Montagnier or Kary Mullis).

Also I would like the chance to debate with Billy & Mellie the Origin of Aids which seems to me to be some great elaborate mystery (& whether its occurrence matches previous vaccine drives in Africa)
