The flu is a virus with 3 main types: A, B, and C.
The flu vaccine is ineffective because there are hundreds of strains constantly shifting and mutating. In 2017, the CDC admitted that the flu vaccine was only 25% effective against preventing the most common strains of that season. (1)
Flu symptoms include runny nose, headache, fever, achy joints, sore throat, cough, and chills. Like any other virus, the flu can potentially lead to severe complications, such as hospitalization or death, especially in people who are immunocompromised. During each “flu season” in the United States anywhere from 37-288 children die of influenza. Around half of those children are immunocompromised and/or suffering a bacterial co-infection. (2) In order to keep that in perspective, the average number of annual pediatric flu deaths is 111. With 74 million children, that means your child has a .00015% of dying from the flu.
On the flipside, the flu shot (along with Gardasil) is the most dangerous vaccine on the market, literally. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out the largest sum of money for flu shot injuries.
As of January 2019, the number of reported flu shot injuries to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) was 163,925. (3)
If you scroll through the national database, common adverse events from the flu shot include:
- GBS (an autoimmune disorder which can result in paralysis)
- Encephalitis (swelling of the brain) debilitating pain
- Tachycardia, breathing difficulty
- Convulsions, vomiting, ear pain
- Cough, chills, headache, heart attack, asthma, facial swelling, anaphylaxis
- Apnea (stopped breathing)
