Not only does the influenza type A vaccine offer little or no benefit, it also weakens the immune system in children—making them more prone to every other influenza virus. It is, at best, a crap shoot as to which influenza strains will make the rounds in any season. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that people continue to get the flu after having the vaccinations.
Potentially even worse, though, is that the particular part of the immune system harmed by the vaccine also defends against cancer.
The study, “Annual Vaccination against Influenza Virus Hampers Development of Virus-Specific CD8 T Cell Immunity in Children“, was published in the Journal of Virology. It shows that immunity to influenza A virus (H5N1) – as measured in terms of antibodies, not actual trials of efficacy – is obtained at the cost of the T cells called CD8+. The authors found that children become more susceptible to other types of flu if an H5N1 vaccine is given.
T cells are often referenced in terms of HIV and AIDS. That’s because they’re a significant part of the immune system and what the HIV virus attacks. CD8+ cells are a type of T cell, and they’re part of the body’s response to cancer. It is, in fact, the loss of these cells that result in Kaposi’s sarcoma, the dark purple skin lesions that are frequently seen on AIDS victims. They are also involved in helping to clear other viruses, including hepatitis B.
The study demonstrates that fewer cross-reactive virus-specific CD8+ cells develop after influenza A vaccinations. Does it also affect the development of other CD8+ cells, like those that attack cancer or battle hepatitis B? We simply do not know the answer.
Annual vaccination for influenza type A, which is generally included in the multivalent vaccines given, is now known to increase the risk of developing any other type of influenza in children. That it’s just now being discovered clearly demonstrates the cavalier manner in which vaccines are developed and thrust onto the public.
No serious testing has ever been done on influenza vaccinations. They have simply been presumed to be safe. Investigating the immune system to see what is affected is not done—in influenza or any other vaccines. The only focus is on whether antibodies to the particular disease are developed. As this study demonstrates, that is obviously inadequate. In fact, in the case of influenza, not even that much is tested, as the viruses trialed are merely stand-ins.
This turns the annual flu vaccine into, at best, a farce, and at worst, a significant danger to health. There is no evidence based medicine with regard to vaccines.
The FDA lies to us when it approves them and calls them safe. Big Pharma is now focusing on vaccinations as a primary profit center, as their old standbys are now going out of patent and there’s little new in the drug pipeline.
As a result, we’re seeing more and more vaccines being developed for anything that can be imagined. The potential and known risks are covered up as the entire population is treated as combination profit center and guinea pig. Even the option of refusal is starting to be taken from us, especially from the most vulnerable—our children.
