Flu shots–behind the promotion.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is conducting its annual promotion of flu shots.

It might be worthwhile reviewing some of my past reporting.

Major U.S. government study finds flu shots don’t work in elderly.

When the major study found negative results about the effectiveness of flu shots in the elderly (above link), the government wouldn’t let the scientists who conducted the research do interviews with me.

On another topic, CDC has recently said this stands to be the worst flu season since the swine flu epidemic.

That reminds me of the investigation I did for CBS News that showed the swine flu epidemic wasn’t as advertised:

Swine flu epidemic overexaggerated?

My report on swine flu (above link) hints at the convoluted way that government sometimes counts cases of flu and other illnesses in ways that may make them appear far more prevalent and deadly.

More of my medical and vaccine related reports, as well as government resources, here.

Also at the same link, you’ll also find my reporting on EV-D68 and the mysterious outbreaks of polio like paraysis among American children. The CDC refused to even tell us which states the outbreaks are occurring in, even though that information is collected on behalf of public and belongs to us.[hr]

Now more than ever: “The Smear.”

  1. I understand this influenza data and conclusions are not exactly up to date. I am an Acute Respiratory Distress survivor, just barely. Is there anything new? Any subtleties of new advice for us older people? Thank you for your work as a eyeopening journalist and for your fight against the powers in our government that are immoral, unconstitutional and dangerous to the survival of our republic. And one more thing:
    Will you be in Tampa any time soon?

    1. Go Gators! I saw a “super” senior flu shot being promoted without explanation (and no disclosure of any risk factors!) on TV recently. I wonder if this is the CDC’s answer to the fact that their research shows normal flu shots don’t work in the elderly. I wonder what’s different about the supercharged new flu shots for the elderly?
