A sampling of flu cases so far this season suggests the current flu vaccine may not be a good match for the most common seasonal flu strain currently circulating in the United States, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday.

I left this comment:

It is worth the risk?  If the vaccine strain isn't a good match, why get the shot?  If the vaccine is from a mult-dose vial, which many are, it also comes with a full load of toxic mercury as a preservative.  (25 mcg.) 

Mercury is a known neurotoxin shown to be linked to Alzheimer's, autism and other neurodevelopmental problems.  The mercury-based vaccine preservative thimerosal was never tested or approved by the FDA, yet it's allowed in the flu shot.

It's also important to remember that neither the manufacturer nor the doctor is liable for any injuries from a flu shot.  They've been protected by federal law. Injuried parties have to appeal to a government program that is more focused on defending vaccines as safe than compensating injured parties.

See the recent story from the San Francisco Chronicle on how the vaccine compensation program fails to do its job.

The flu shot is discussed in the piece.

Educate before you vaccinate. Check out the National Vaccine Information Center.

Only a short time ago, autism was one of our great medical mysteries. Today, it's one of the better-funded disease research areas- with great benefit: Autism's causes and treatments are more understood than ever before.

If I were seriously trying to cover up the damage from our vaccine program..........

I'd promote THREE BIG LIES:

....first of all, there's been no increase in's a genetic condition.

....there is no link to vaccines, and we're getting really close to finding the REAL CAUSE.

....things are looking better for coming adults.

The adult issues are just beginning.  It's time to pretend that experts are really focused on that too.

This piece of stupidity makes me want to run screaming from the room.  Just when I think my opinion of the media couldn't possibly be any lower.........I have to dig down a few more feet.

This feel-good, gee we're really making headway with autism coverage is fiction.  "Autism's causes and treatments are more understood than ever before."

No they're not.  No one in mainstream medicine or public health knows anything about autism--they admit it eagerly all the time.

Vague references to environmental factors like air pollution along with autism genes are no answer.  And the cheery note about things looking better for autistic adults is pure fantasy. 

FOX NEWS doesn't care about what autism is doing to our nation.  "4 things we learned [about autism] in 2014"?  We learned nothing new about autism in 2014.  We didn't in 2013.  Or 2012, Or 2011.....

No one really wants to investigate autism.  What we'd discover would be the worst medical malfeasance in history.  ...Instead we get wishful thinking from Fox News.  (And they don't even bother to give us the rate.) By Michael Goldberg

Newly published data indicates that the number of Pennsylvania minors with autism who are getting caught up in the juvenile criminal justice system increased dramatically from 2005 to 2011, prompting researchers to call for a deeper dive into the numbers and the implementation of more strategies to guide law enforcement and other agencies in their encounters with individuals with autism.

"Pennsylvania kids"?

So how many 40, 50, and 60 year olds with autism were in trouble with the police at the same time?  Here they're talking about the "juvenile justice system."  This is the first wave of the autism generation coming ashore.

Notice the definition of autism. How does that prepare the police for young people who are nonverbal and have violent outbursts when confronted?  It's hard to imagine how many ASD people will eventually be in trouble with the police. 

We'll probably adjust to that too.  There'll be a special categories for "autism cases" and the "autism defense."  (Something like pleading insanity.)

Maybe we'll eventually have the "Autism Justice System." 

I wonder if Mr. Goldberg was curious about where all these kids are coming from and why this is a problem.  Probably not.  They never are. 

Wall Street Journal

Parents who won't vaccinate their children are reviving once-dead diseases. Will a vaccine mandate be needed?

...Because parents seeking exemptions tend to be geographically clustered, these communities can become outbreak hotbeds. For example, the exemption rate in Orchard Prairie in Washington state is 24%, five times higher than the state's median exemption rate and 13 times higher than the national average.

Forty-eight states offer nonmedical waivers for parents to exempt their children from vaccination, and the states where exemptions are the easiest to get are also home to the highest rates of unvaccinated children. States such as Colorado and Oregon, which only require parental signatures for exemptions, have exemption rates close to 6%, among the highest in the country, according to CDC data.

These refusals have directly resulted in an increase in the incidence of almost forgotten diseases like whooping cough and measles.

"Will a vaccine mandate be needed?--Excuse me, there already are mandates.  What the Wall Street Journal is talking about is AN END TO EXEMPTIONS.  They’re talking about FORCED VACCINATION.

Those who question vaccine safety and exempt their children simply can't be tolerated.  They are causing the spread of diseases that vaccine prevent.  They are equivalent to someone who drives drunk  ....Scary stuff here.

Few topics are as divisive in the autism community as vaccines. There are those who are convinced that their child's diagnosis began with a reaction to a shot, while others argue that there is no evidence to support this. The debate is further fueled by sudden outbreaks of diseases thought to be eradicated years ago, outbreaks many doctors blame on the anti-vaccination movement.

Dr. Paul A. Offit is a vocal supporter of vaccines. He is the Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases and the Director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. He is the author of several books, including Do You Believe in Magic? and Autism's False Prophets, and is the recipient of several awards, including the Young Investigator Award in Vaccine Development from the Infectious Disease Society of America. He is also the co-inventor of the rotavirus vaccine, RotaTeq.

Paul Offit's credentials are listed..."He is also the co-inventor of the rotavirus vaccine, RotaTeq." Yes,Laurel Joss mentions that he invented his own vaccine for rotavirus.

HEY---THAT IS IMPORTANT.  He is an industry insider.  He's made millions from the mandated vaccine schedule.  Quit pretending that he's an unbiased expert.

The most important reason parents aren't vaccinating is because of the frightening link between vaccines and AUTISM.  But this story mentions AUTISM ONCE.

 Unless and until we become seriously concerned/alarmed about a disorder affecting almost two percent of children, Paul Offit will get away with this.  He will continue to label those who question vaccine safety as "anti-vaccination." 

He'll be credible when he sounds an alarm about measles and whooping cough--while shrugging off a horrendous autism rate.

Offit dismisses autism as a real health care issue.  It's genetic.  It's only happening more often because doctors have a wider definition of the disorder.  The inclusion of people we once considered "geeky" or "nerdy" is the reason for the increased rate

Joss needs to realize that mentioning Offit's vaccine connection shouldn't given him a free pass. This is A HUGE CONFLICT.

She also need to realize that there's no "anti-vaccination movement."  It's really the "vaccine injury movement."  And these people are never going to stop because they know firsthand what harm vaccines can do.


Good luck, parents.  If you or your child is injured by a vaccine, this is what you're up against. 

My Fox Twin Cities

If you or your child were to be seriously injured after receiving a routine government-recommended vaccination, what would you do? You might assume, as many Americans do, that you could choose to hire an attorney and sue the vaccine’s manufacturer. 

Or you might sue the doctor if the vaccine was given negligently so you could obtain financial compensation for medical care, pain, and suffering.

But this is not possible. At least, not anymore, because Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court have banned vaccine product liability and vaccine injury malpractice lawsuits in the US. Today, vaccine victims are forced to apply to a federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).

The Fox 9 Investigators have new information in their ongoing investigation of human research practices at the University of Minnesota. A hospital insider has come forward with secret recordings, and that information is raising more questions about drug studies done on people with mental illness.

Niki Gjere has worked at the U of M Medical Center at Fairview Riverside hospital for 22 years, and she's risking it all by talking to the Fox 9 Investigators.

"I came to you because I wanted to make sure that this is told," Gjere said. "You don't speak against the University and not pay somehow."

She is troubled about drug research done on extremely vulnerable patients in the University of Minnesota program that's been clouded in controversy for more than a decade.

"I want somebody to pay attention and really investigate and really evaluate what happened then, and what's happening now," Gjere told Fox 9 Investigator Jeff Baillo.

"Drug research on extremely vulnerable patients..."

Thank God for this nurse.  She is an honest, ethical person. 

How much power, money and influence does the drug industry exert EVERYWHERE?

And meanwhile...we're supposed to trust that vaccines are safe and well-tested.

barbaraj the vaccine pushers are saying the CDC meant to say that compared to kids who had whole cell, those that received acellular are at higher risk of getting the disease..NO! quote CDC "Our findings of an approximate 4-fold greater odds of having pertactin-deficient B. pertussis when up-to-date

with vaccinations compared to unvaccinated is the first evidence for a possible selective advantage of pertactin deficient


I'm so bothered by that cdc transcript. It tells that pertactin deficient pertussis represents 100% of pertussis disease in 2014. It goes on to say having an acellular vaccine is THE risk factor for developing whooping cough. NO ONE is protected by this useless vaccine, then old information, once part of the transcript before this update ..stands. going on to suggest vaccinating pregnant women to protect the unborn. WITH WHAT?? The vaccine they claim increases the risk of the illness? a vaccine that by their own admission " Primed" a child for developing the disease? Is there no policing of these dangerous people, how many more of our children will they damage before they tell the truth in it's entirety ? I did notice they are suggesting chemoprophylaxis ..they are beginning to tell some yet not all truth ..they state.. the families of the affected infants are the source of infection, not the stray unvaccinated ten year old in the mall they SO MUCH WANTED EVERYONE TO BELIEVE. That ugly FICTION is however still on the pages of most media trash, and today, that's most media.


WHY would the CDC continue to push pertussis vaccines AFTER making these comments?" Kids primed with acellular vaccines have a higher risk of


They are admitting, there are NO benefits from the vaccine, all risks at this point!!


I think they are on to the fact of doctors and researchers looking more critically at the flu vaccine.


If doctors looked critically at flu vaccines, they would never give it to anyone.

Vaccines for preventing influenza in healthy adults.

Update in

Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2014;3:CD001269.


Different types of influenza vaccines are currently produced worldwide. Healthy adults are presently targeted mainly in North America.

Identify, retrieve and assess all studies evaluating the effects of vaccines against influenza in healthy adults.

We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) (The Cochrane Library, 2010, issue 2), MEDLINE (January 1966 to June 2010) and EMBASE (1990 to June 2010).

Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) or quasi-RCTs comparing influenza vaccines with placebo or no intervention in naturally-occurring influenza in healthy individuals aged 16 to 65 years. We also included comparative studies assessing serious and rare harms.

Two review authors independently assessed trial quality and extracted data.

We included 50 reports. Forty (59 sub-studies) were clinical trials of over 70,000 people. Eight were comparative non-RCTs and assessed serious harms. Two were reports of harms which could not be introduced in the data analysis. In the relatively uncommon circumstance of vaccine matching the viral circulating strain and high circulation, 4% of unvaccinated people versus 1% of vaccinated people developed influenza symptoms (risk difference (RD) 3%, 95% confidence interval (CI) 2% to 5%). The corresponding figures for poor vaccine matching were 2% and 1% (RD 1, 95% CI 0% to 3%). These differences were not likely to be due to chance. Vaccination had a modest effect on time off work and had no effect on hospital admissions or complication rates. Inactivated vaccines caused local harms and an estimated 1.6 additional cases of Guillain-Barré Syndrome per million vaccinations. The harms evidence base is limited.

Influenza vaccines have a modest effect in reducing influenza symptoms and working days lost. There is no evidence that they affect complications, such as pneumonia, or transmission.WARNING: This review includes 15 out of 36 trials funded by industry (four had no funding declaration). An earlier systematic review of 274 influenza vaccine studies published up to 2007 found industry funded studies were published in more prestigious journals and cited more than other studies independently from methodological quality and size. Studies funded from public sources were significantly less likely to report conclusions favorable to the vaccines. The review showed that reliable evidence on influenza vaccines is thin but there is evidence of widespread manipulation of conclusions and spurious notoriety of the studies. The content and conclusions of this review should be interpreted in light of this finding.

Re.Flu vaccine not being very effective this year,
I think they are on to the fact of doctors and researchers looking more critically at the flu vaccine. A study a few years ago actually swabbed persons who assumed they had the "flu." in fact, very few of them actually had the flu. They had a cold virus.


Autism / Aspergers IS a crime.

And the day will come, when the criminals responsible will be held accountable for what they've done.
