Is there any evidence that the flu shots have helped? Has anyone who HAD a flu shot die? Why does the article specifically suggest that American Indians and Alaskan Natives get the flu shots?

Can anyone answer these questions?

In Canada we have reserves where aboriginals live. Don't get me wrong calling them that, they are separate groups who have names half a block long and as difficult to say as Russian names. They are abused and neglected by our Federal and Provincial governments, and its contributed to a lot of problems. At one time their isolation they were viewed as perfect populations for vaccine experiments, just like its done in Africa and other third world areas now. Pharma is looking into setting up in Cuba to avoid rules, lawsuit, and control.

Sounds like things are not that much different in the "plantation" to the north.
