UK Government Decides Against Giving Children The Flu Vaccine

Vaccinate your child at your own risk!News in from the UK government. Last night ministers and senior government advisers ruled against the flu vaccine for children under five. Their decision was made despite the current flu epidemic in the UK.

Reports say that 39 people have died from flu since October, four of these were under the age of five.

Daily Mail reporter Sophie Borland who took up the story wrote (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health…):

The latest figures show that an epidemic has now broken out among children under four and levels have reached a ten-year high.

But ministers and senior Government advisers last night ruled that the immunisation programme for those aged six months to five years – which was quietly cancelled earlier this year – would not have significant ‘gain’.”

Why the sudden turn around?

In July The Telegraph had this headline ‘Flu vaccine for under-5s given OK’. (http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news…) They reported that Professor Jim Bishop reassured the public that the flu vaccine was perfectly safe and wrote:

“In the meantime, I am now advising that if parents of children under five years of age wish to their children vaccinated against seasonal flu that they should discuss with their GP or vaccine provider the use of Vaxigrip or Influvac,” Professor Bishop said.


Have ministers had one too many drinks over the festive period? Perhaps common sense has finally hit the UK government between the eyes. Or… maybe they have given a closer look at what Hugh Fudenberg MD, world’s leading immunologist, has had to say on the flu vaccine.

Dr Fudenburg has said that anyone who has had more than two flu vaccines between 1970 and 1980 has a far higher chance of having Althzeimer’s in old age. The Top News website had this to say in their article ‘World’s Leading Immunologist Condemned Flu Vaccination’ (http://topnews.us/content…):

“This is because of the aluminum and mercury, which almost every flu vaccine contains. The gradual accumulation of aluminum and mercury in the brain leads to cognitive dysfunction”, said Fudenberg. So, he recommended that the flu shot had no much benefit so it was better to avoid them.

He added that as flu vaccine contained many toxic chemicals, so they instead of boosting immune system, make it weak, thus increasing the chances of getting affected with flu.

In an article ‘Why the flu vaccine does not work’ (http://chemistry.about.com/cs/…) they state:

“The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is looking at whether or not the flu vaccine is effective. Preliminary results indicate you’ll get just as sick (with colds, flu, flu-like illnesses) if you got the vaccine than if you didn’t.”

If this is correct then the flu vaccine is not cost effective.

In the UK, intensive care beds are full to bursting point. The UK government is trying to make as many cut backs as humanly possible in a bid to save the country.  Currently there are a record number of flu patients in the UK in critical care beds. See the report in the Sun for details (http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage…). There is little point wasting valuable resources advertising and administering a vaccine that is ineffective.

Last year the UK was left with egg on their face when the Swine Flu pandemic turned out to be little more than a sneeze. This left the government saddled with millions of unused vaccines with no get out clause.

The Telegraph had this to say at the time (http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news…):

“The swine flu pandemic cost Northern Ireland £41.8 million and Britain more than £1.2bn despite being much less severe than feared.”

Perhaps the UK government have learnt their lesson.  Instead of vaccination they have decided to bring back last years Swine Flu ads with the caption ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zT9fxhrjoQc). The message is the best way to combat the flu is a lesson in hygiene. I will second that.

    I dont normally like to mix issues up, but maybe the sudden turnaround thing is about prompting the public to speak out more about govt incompetence, to encourage more people to get on the streets and protest, so the armed forces can be put on the streets and therefore put us into martial law….?

  • Dai

    I was thinking the same about a lot of things, I wonder if they would come out and drop a bombshell, and say something on the lines of they knew that their vaccines caused autism.

    Would that make the public angry, or would that even flinch the dial on their fluoride controlled, amydala?

  • Nobody ever gets sick because of a deficiency in vaccinations…!

    The best answer in case of any infectuous disease, including influenza, is:
    1. to take large amounts of vitamin C (this will neutralize the free radical cascade because of the toxins);
    2. to let fever have its course (The natural task of fever is to inhibit viral replication. Stopping the fever will let the viruses have a ball!).

    Vitamin C is ideally taken intravenously (sodium ascorbate): http://www.orthomed.com/klenner.htm
    Taking vitamin C orally: many times during the day take smaller amounts of L-ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate. Build up to the maximum dosage (no diarrhea). When necessary, take more dosages (every hour, every half hour) of smaller amounts.
    For adults: under 10 grams (10.000 milligrams) a day there will be no therapeutic effect. Increase the dosage (till bowel tolerance) when the desired effect is not happening.

    In ‘The Role of Hyperergy in Measles Encephalitis’, (Am J Dis Child. 1962;103(3):273-278) polio vaccine researcher Hilary Koprowski (1916-) wrote:

    This statement

    Four children under the age of five have died of flu since October. There are also 42 under-five patients in critical care. Unlike other flu strains, swine flu is most virulent in younger age groups.

    from here

    Will likely get the ‘people’ on the streets protesting that we should be vaccinating under 5’s, I predict a riot, of antis and pros fighting on the streets! perfect set up ?

    Dai and Rover, well said both of you.

  • Dai

    That statement off the Mail Online is utter nonsense!!! I still cannot believe people still think Vaccinations protect them from certain virus’s. Bonkers. Playing on the whole “its for the greater good” scenario, they never tell the public how many people die from the normal flu though, irritates me.

    I spoke to a Pharmacist in Tesco’s the other day about this, because they were quite frankly advertising for vaccination jabs while you go food shopping, how messed up is that?? I think really messed up!! She was telling me that these jabs are safe, and then when I mentioned a few ingredients within jabs(thimerasol, aluminium), she was asking me “what I was trying to get at”, I told her that she was selling poison, she denied as brainswashed sheeple would do. And then she told me that she was basically “insignificant compared to the company making the vaccine”, so she basically didn’t care, and if I had a problem I should contact Tesco. What a joke!

    So its ok for them to sell poison because they didnt make it, thats the analogy I got from her. Bonkers.

  • free man by nature

    YES Dai, apparently it is OK for them to sell poison and inject it into us all too…. you wouldnt treat an animal like that would you, how many livestock have been given swine flu jabs?????

    on this page the poll options have yes first then no below,

    http://www.bmj.com/letters

    That page has the main text over the poll options so I CANNOT VOTE, so I decided to have a look at the programming and went to this page

    http://www.bmj.com/content/341/bmj.c7459

    Which has the same Poll, on this page the NO option is first, and the yes option is below, so IF you cannot use the first page, you can go to the second page, THEY BOTH USE THE SAME PIECE OF programming, and therefore (for me) If I was to vote no, it would be counted as ayes…..FRAUD ?

    Ask jeff to take a look please and see if he finds the same thing?

    I have put this last part on a few places on facebook, but the end parts about the no vote being counted as yes have disappeared……….

    Hi everyone

    Thank you for your comments. Dai your comments made me smile as in 2008 Tesco took thousands of packs of Houmous of their shelves because of a salmonella scare. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-561563/Tesco-Waitrose-houmous-shelves-salmonella-scare.html Salmonella I beleive is contamination or bacteria that cause humans to become sick. So what is the difference? Tesco said at the time and I quote “We understand the contamination was found during routine testing by the manufacturer”.

    In 2009 they removed Brown Rice http://www.food.gov.uk/news/newsarchive/2009/nov/tescorice

    Yet they are perfectly happy to sell flu vaccines full of mercury and aluminium to unsuspecting customers

    Christina

  • Christina England

    DL Rover is correct. No one ever dies from the flu FACT. They die from complications associated with the flu.

    Free Man thank you for pointing out the fault on the BMJ poll. As you say I to would expect this to be possible fraud. Maybe the scales tipped in favour of the anti vaxers :)

  • Dai

    I didnt know that about the Houmous or the Brown rice, I must say though the next day I went back into Tesco, they did take their huge sign down for ‘Flu Vaccines’ by the Pharmacy, I got a lot of sheepish looks :)

    When the kids are back at school on the 4th, I think im gonna print out some of these ‘Warranty of Vaccine Safety’, and hand them out to parents as they wait for their kids at school. Sounds like a good idea.

    Found something out there thanks DL Rover and Christina.

  • Sandy

    Thank you Christina for an excellent article with some very interesting links.

    There seems to be all round confusion regarding the recommendations. It would have been interesting to be a fly on the wall when the discussions were taking place.

    I must admit that I’m confused about the composition of the recommended seasonal vaccine (or vaccines) for UK. I have not yet found the actual name of the vaccine/s or the name of the manufacturer/s.

    Yes, it’s clear that there will be three virus strains, H1N1, H3N2 and B, but there are always other ingredients present too and it is important to know these because of their potential adverse reactions and interactions.

    In the article Dr Fudenburg states: “This is because of the aluminum and mercury, which almost every flu vaccine contains”.
    I cannot see that any influensa vaccine contains aluminium. Please inform me if I’m mistaken.

    Many other vaccines contain aluminium as adjuvant, eg Hep B and A, DTaP, Hib, PCV, Gardasil etc.

    Regarding mercury (thimerosal), no single dose vaccines contain it, (apart from possible trace amounts remaining from the manufacturing process). Multidose preparations (vials) do often contain mercury as preservative.

    So I think that the seasonal influensa vaccine now recommended for UK most probably will not contain aluminium, and it will not contain mercury (except for possible traces) if it is presented in a single dose, pre-filled syringe. The problem is that many health authorities try to save money so they buy cheaper multidose vaccines in vials and they contain mercury.

    The vaccines recommended will no doubt (as usual!) contain several other toxic substances. That is why I wish that we could be informed of the name of the vaccine or vaccines so that we can investigate the potential side effects of the ingredients.

    After all, we often read labels on jam jars and if we don’t like the look of the ingredients, then we don’t buy the jam!

  • free man by nature

    Well said Sandy :)

    and yes, thank you very much Christina for another great article, When I was researching mercury in vax’s, I was under the impression that only ‘Live ‘ vax’s had no mercury in them, Because it would kill the virus’ and all the other ones (Synthetics) were the ones with mercury in. Sandy I note what you have said, do you have a link for your info on single dose / no mercury ?

    If a vaccine vial that contains thimerasol is dropped It is toxic waste and must not be touched and requires special health and safety procedures to remove and dispose of it, this is law, so how on earth can they allow it to be injected??? well they dont really allow it, Mercury is banned, so they changed the name and called it thimerasol which is not banned!

  • Sandy

    Free man, for interest:) I’ve written this about mercury in injections:

    All multidose injections (vials) must contain a preservative, this is often thimerosal/mercury. To have preservative properties it must be in a strength of at least 0.01%. Equivalent to 50 microgram thimerosal per 0.5ml dose, or 25 microgram mercury. A preservative is necessary in multidose vials because there is a risk of microbial contamination each time a dose is withdrawn from the vial.

    Single dose injections do not require preservatives.

    HOWEVER
    During the manufacturing processes mercury may be used to prevent microbial contamination, even though it may not be present as a PRESERVATIVE (i.e. not present in preservative strength) in the end product:

    The intention is to remove it. but because it is difficult to remove absolutely all, up to 1 microgram per 0.5ml dose is permitted to remain.

    This is termed “trace” mercury and is not sufficient to have preservative properties. So single dose prefilled injections may contain traces of mercury even though a preservative is not required.

    The misleading catch is that injections may be termed “preservative free” because they do not contain mercury in a high enough concentration to have preservative properties – but they may nevertheless contain “mercury traces”, up to 1 microgram per 0,5ml dose!

  • Dai

    Thanks for the info Sandy

  • Another great article, Christina. Thank you so much. I just used it on Matt Lauer’s wall so for those who would like to take a look, here’s the link;

    http://www.facebook.com/NBCMattLauer

  • Sandy

    The government is counting on a public outcry from parents for equal rights to get their under five year olds the vaccine too.
    Then the health authorities will be able to use up all of the vaccines which are bought.
    The fact that the vaccine may present risks regarding serious adverse events is overshadowed. Again.

  • Dai

    Always overshadowed, I told another lady to day, I used to work with her. She basically told me that the jabs she received,didnt do her any harm, so they are fine. She said its better to be safe than sorry, people don’t realise at all. By the way this is after I told her about all the poisons inside the vaccines. Are people so ignorant?…… even when it comes to something as important as their children’s health? And if the sheeple do go and protest saying they want the same rights for their children, people are really not aware they are digging their own grave. Its completely crazy, and so dumb!!

    Seems to be when the government wants to outlaw something they will only ever talk about the bad things related to that particular object (misinformation), and then obviously preach about something being fantastic, necessary when its actually doing the opposite. This world is so backwards. Im tired……….

  • Dixie Diva

    At least you all seem to be more ahead of the curve than the “sheeple” in the U.S. This poor fellow is now paralyzed and can not receive any monetary compensation since the H1N1 swine flu vaccine makers are protected under the bio-terrorism act that was passed by the government:

    http://www.wbaltv.com/r/22755325/detail.html

    I am happy to read the comments though, all hope is not lost as people are coming out of the “vaccines are safe” brainwashed fog.

    See how things are gradually covered up and “pose no threat” when the earlier article states that it was “independent” academic researchers who tested and found PCV1 virus contaminants in the GSK Rotarix
    vaccine and the Merck version Rotateq had B O T H PCV1 and PCV2 pig viral contaminants but they only halted the use of the Rotarix temporarily until GSK more than likely put together some “bribe and hush” money for the FDA, the Federal Death Agency lol :

    http://biopharminternational.findpharma.com/biopharm/News/PCV1-Virus-Detected-in-GSKs-Rotarix-Vaccine/ArticleStandard/Article/detail/662269?contextCategoryId=435&ref=25

    “The agency recently became aware that an independent US academic research team has found DNA from porcine circovirus 1 (PCV1) in Rotarix. ”

    http://www.pediatricsupersite.com/view.aspx?rid=64151

    Can anyone explain how pig viral contaminants can be found in “S A F E”
    vaccines?

  • Barbara

    Thank you once again Christina for another good article. Off topic a little, it greatly annoys me to see the government and media concocting this bogus pandemic story. As has been pointed out here nobody dies of the flu, but of some other complication. I think the ascorbic acid and feeding the fever advice from DL ROVER is excellent advice which I know works.
    What I find most annoying about this whole fiasco, is the fact that there is a pandemic retrovirus which the UK government, NHS and media are doing their utmost to cover up.
    XMRV is a HIV type virus which was found by Dr.Judy Mikovits to have infected at least 60% of M.E. patients and between 4-7% of healthy controls. This is something our blood supply is not being screened for, although M.E. patients have now been banned from ever giving blood, something we as patients have been campaigning for for years. The reason given for the ban is for the safety of the patients health!!!! The health of M.E. patients is something these authorities have never worried about before so one has to ask ‘Why now’?
    Why also the rush to discredit the work of Dr.Mikovits, with reports of contamination?
    Many M.E. sufferers trace the origins of their illness following various vaccinations.
    Maybe the XMRV story might be something to do an article on next Christina?

  • Janette

    Thanks Christina for another great article and links.
    And to commenters for all info and questions raised. I did a google on the two vaccines mentioned by Professor Bishop, and see that Vaxigrip is manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur and Influvac by Solvay in the Netherlands. Interestingly this site below says Influvac does not contain Thimerosal, but is not currently approved for under 18s!!!? Whereas Vaxigrip does contain Thimerosal!

    http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/im/q_a_thimerosal-eng.php
    [I ignore the usual protestations that Thimerosal is safe]

    There is an alarming list of serious possible side effects to Vaxigrip on this site –
    http://www.mydr.com.au/cmis/ReducedPDFs/CMR07319.pdf

    I wonder which vaccine was being used in Australia last year?
    http://www.politicolnews.com/flu-vaccine-stops-in-australia/

  • Sandy

    Many interesting comments to this article:)

    Janette, you write about mercury/thimerosal in vaccines. It is important to know whether the vaccine is in pre-filled syringes for one dosage use, or if it is in multidose vials (containing doses for several people).

    The general rule for vaccines (in fact for all injections) is that a preservative (eg mercury/thimerosal) is required for all multidose (vials) injections.

    Preservatives (mercury/thimerosal) are not required for pre-filled, single dose syringes, although traces may be permitted.

    I have explained about this in a comment above (no. 12), sorry if it wasn’t clear.

    Authorities may order most vaccines as pre-filled syringes, but they are more expensive. To save money they may order them in multidose vial presentations containing thimerosal – here we certainly may say that the money issue counts more than that of public health.

    Your wonder about the vaccine used in Australia last year – I understand that it was Fluvax.

  • Janette

    Yes Sandy – I understood – and noticed the vaccine which contained thimerosal was a multidose kind. What wasn’t clear in the link I gave, was whether single dose vials were also manufactured for that particular vaccine.
    But I now see they are available –
