As I was doing my internet rounds today, something I do every day gathering health articles and studies, I found two articles of recent reports of flu shot deaths. You may be shocked to learn that someone could die from a vaccine or flu shot, but I’m use to this, I come across these type of articles all the time. Why don’t you see them on major news outlets? Because it’s bad for business. Big Pharma are large corporate sponsors and advertisers through media and if you run stories that make them look bad their money goes bye bye. And a death here and there isn’t major news, it’s a one in a million chance! Losing a few kids here and there is the inherent risk, but if you look at the bigger picture keeping these stories quiet is for the better good right? We wouldn’t want you to be scared to get your shots or even worse ask us hard questions about them. So nothing to see here, shut up and get your shot.
But today, these stories got to me. One was a young hospital worker and one was a three year old girl. I don’t know if it was because I have a three year old daughter too, or if it was the hospital worker who is forced to get the shot or lose her job and instead she lost her life. Maybe it was a combination of both. But they got to me none the less. And one thing that is always consistent with these incidents is the arrogance and lack of remorse of the doctors or scientists interviewed about the incidents. They always say the same unapologetic rhetoric, “Vaccines are safe, this was a one in a million chance.” Or like from one today’s articles “For the majority of people, they should get vaccinated because this is a very unusual case, and it typically doesn’t happen.” Comforting right? Or how about the remorse shown by the Kenosha County Health Officer Cynthia Johnson who shrugged the incident off as a fluke and used this opportunity to urge people to get vaccinated. This is the reaction that everyone has in these cases, they play damage control and refuse to pin any blame to the vaccine or it’s manufacturers.
But I want you to think about what it would feel like to be the mother or father of one of these victims. Because that is exactly what I try to do when I read these. And I say try on purpose, because I really couldn’t imagine. I wonder if Cynthia Johnson has thought what it would feel like? What do you think the percent chance of death from a flu shot is to a parent who just lost their child to a vaccine reaction? 1 in a million? No It’s 100%. Their child is gone, 100% gone. You think they find comfort in the statistics? I can guarantee that they don’t. But I wonder if they or you are aware of these statistics… Last year, 2014, the US Department of Health and Human Services, through the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, paid out $80,310,705.54 to victims and families of victims of vaccine injuries or deaths. Are we still talking about One in a Million? Because our government paid out over $80 million just in 2014. And since this fund was set up in 1988, the program has paid out $2,857,926,807.60 to families. In 2013, they paid out over $276 million! You can find the break downs on their website here http://www.hrsa.gov/vaccinecompensation/statisticsreports.html. And just so you know, this isn't just money you apply for, these are awarded in court. So vaccines don’t cause anything? That couldn’t be further from the truth. And for these families it was 100% reality.
Here are the two stories I was referring to…
