How Effective is the Flu Vaccine

Every year we are urged to get a flu shot. They try to convince us that it is an effective measure against the flu. They have created a sense of urgency around these yearly vaccines and a false sense that it is absolutely necessary. In some sector it is mandatory that workers receive a yearly flu shot without any real evidence to to support the fact that it works.

The truth is many people have developed the flu after receiving a flu shot. I know of people who have gotten sick with the flu right after receiving a flu shot. I too have experienced this. They want to make it seem that it is nothing but a coincidence. If it is I need someone to explain to me why is it that I only get flu symptoms after getting a flu shot. My most recent flu shot was last Friday by Sunday I was having sneezing, itchy throat and runny nose which I am still dealing with. Is this a coincidence?

The flu shot has no guarantee of preventing or lessen the chances one getting the flu and in many cases it is contributing to make people get ill and the CDC knows this. It raises the question. Who really benefit from these Flu vaccine, the people who take it or the people who manufacture it. Your thoughts….
