A flu vaccine can only stimulate your immune system to protect you against the viruses in the vaccine, with some lesser protection against very similar ones.

Bottom line: The flu vaccine varies in effectiveness from year-to-year. Even in a best-case scenario, it won't always protect against the flu. The CDC study didn't say that the vaccine didn't work; it says the vaccine didn't protect people from getting sick. Even with imperfect effectiveness, the vaccine is indicated for certain people. In my opinion, however, the vaccine isn't for everyone and certainly shouldn't be required for otherwise healthy people.

Interesting. Now they stimulate the immune system, not supress it??

The bottom line with the flu vaccine which everyone knows is each year they identify the influenza viruses that are the most likely to cause illness during the upcoming flu season so that people can be protected against them through vaccination, one vaccine generally contains 3 strains. They don't always get it right. Many people don't get the flu vaccine due to this. The flu season 2012/13, H3N2 was most prevalent and it was a strain in the vaccine. However there was another strain going around that wasn't contained in the flu vaccine.

Another bottom line, the flu vaccine has nothing to do with or the cause of autism, however those who have autism are exposed to and are susceptible to germs like anyone else, only difference is many cannot adequately express verbally how they are feeling and by the time a parent realizes their child with autism is ill, they're already experiencing dangerous symptom's.

immunology and biochemistry

The flu vaccine gives your body parts of inactivated flu viruses. These virus parts correspond to parts of proteins floating around in your body. When the virus part contacts a chemical 'match', it stimulates the body to produce the cells and antibodies that can remove this particular intruder. Antibodies are proteins that float in body fluids and can bind to specific chemical markers. When an antibody binds to a substance, it essentially marks it for destruction by other cells. However, an antibody for one type of flu won't necessarily bind to a virus part from another type of flu. You don't get protection against other viruses. A flu vaccine can only stimulate your immune system to protect you against the viruses in the vaccine, with some lesser protection against very similar ones.

Yes we know Big Pharmacy says that, they have no idea why the increase but damn sure know it's not those vaccines...LOL..You have no idea what might be in those vaccines, do you really want to trust the Government that much?

There goes that fear factor again. The Government isn't the onces actually making vaccines. Scientists and doctors are. If you don't trust them, then don't get vaccines. Don't breathe the air either since you don't know what's in it. Years back insulin was deprived from pigs. My sister from birth on (never had a vaccine either and neither did our mother) didn't turn into a pig, get cancer or some neuro disorder. Your fear of the Government and Pharma could end in death for another.

The flu vaccine has nothing to do with autism, onset or cause no matter how much you want to misguide others. The flu vaccine is 'recommended' for those 6 months which is not even the age of general autism onset. but you yet to provide the stats on how many with autism have had a flu vaccine. Vaccines still don't explain why autism affects four times as many boys as girls. Vaccines aren't prejudice, they'd effect genders equally. Vaccines also don't explain why more don't have autism. Everyone should have autism if they had vaccines. It also doesn't explain why those who never had vaccines at all have autism. And yes, we have a clue why the autism rates increased. The majority have a PDD-NOS diagnosis, which was added to the DSM 4, about the same time IDEA added autism. As autism rates rose, MR dropped.
And vaccines has nothing to do with this article. Not a bit. You clearly have a flu vaccine phobia.

If parents are getting their child a flu-vac at 6 months, it will result in some cases of autism. It has thimerosal and aluminum ingredients. Add that to all the other vials of puss and poison and god help these babies.

Wrong. Seasonal influenza vaccines used in the United States do not contain adjuvants nor thimerosal.

The Government...CDC are the ones promoting the vaccines. And through medicare and ObamaCare, it's being pushed by the Government. Some jobs you have no choice. Who funds the flu vaccines? US Government and pharmaceutical companies. Who approves flu vaccines? US Government

Vaccines are expensive to make, and the flu can mutate significantly from season to season. In a mild flu season, companies can be left with millions of unsold doses if the flu season is mild. Not good.

Current flu vaccines are mostly grown in fertilized chicken eggs using a 60-year-old method that requires hundreds of millions of eggs. The technique can take up to six months and is an arduous process, prone to manufacturing problems. We are using a 60 year method?

In 2006, HHS provided more than $1 billion in contracts to six manufacturers to develop cell-based flu vaccine technology in the United States. Although its use in flu vaccines is new, cell-based vaccine technology has been around for years, offering a faster, more reliable alternative to egg culture.

In 2009, spurred by difficulties in growing vaccine for the H1N1 swine flu pandemic, HHS provided Novartis with nearly $500 million to build the first U.S. facility capable of producing cell-based vaccine for seasonal and pandemic flu in the United States. Novartis picked up the rest of the estimated $1 billion price tag.

Flu Shot Being Forced on Health Workers

Why don’t they want it? Because some of them know too much. Here’s the whole tawdry tale.

This week we learned that hospital employees throughout Colorado will be fired unless they get a flu shot by the end of the year. New state health regulations require flu shots for health care workers to be phased in over the next several years, but nearly all hospitals in Colorado have made the vaccinations mandatory—immediately. Employees are exempt from the shot only for medical reasons; if they refuse, they will be suspended, and if they haven’t gotten the shot by the end of the year, they will be fired.

Many healthcare workers don’t want the injection. No surprise there. They know more about it, that it is not safe by any means. As we reported last month, the US flu shot still contains mercury, which among other things is associated with the development of Alzheimer’s. And a recent study indicates that people who received a flu shot were more likely to become infected with the H1N1 flu virus than people who haven’t received the shot!

Far safer choices exist to keep people from catching the flu—the most important of which is to ensure an adequate level of vitamin D and thoroughly washing your hands. Even so, mainstream medicine, the mass media, and federal and local governments all push the flu vaccine as if it is humanity’s last, best hope.

It’s our old friend Crony Capitalism at work again:

The government has formed strong partnerships with the pharmaceutical industry. For example, the federal government has just invested $400 million of your money toward the development and manufacture of vaccines and “medical countermeasures” to be used in health emergencies and preparedness protection. Vaccine giants Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, and Lonza are among those on the receiving end.
Sometimes, as in the case of Gardasil, the government itself is involved in the vaccine’s development and grants a license to a vaccine maker for profit. The government is also subsidizing the development of adjuvants—that is, vaccine agents designed to increase the immune response—which are often very dangerous substances.
The government then reviews the product for safety and efficacy and—no big shocker here—approves it.
It then subsidizes the vaccine’s manufacture—$2.8 billion of taxpayer money in 2005 was spent subsidizing the rapid development of cell-based technology for making the flu vaccine.
Having demonstrated a complete lack of objectivity, the same government issues guidelines to the states about mandating flu shots for all school children and healthcare workers.
It then shields the vaccine manufacturer from any liability for adverse reactions to the flu shot, dismisses reports of adverse events, refuses to investigate them or even study whether the vaccine is actually conferring any immunity, which in many instances is highly doubtful.

Washing hands is fine, except for that airborne route. You can wash your hands all day long and it wont help a bit.

A fast web search, anyone can locate that
Vitamin D is thought to play an important role in immune function, but clinical trials have shown that it is virtually powerless in the fight against cold and flu in adults with healthy levels. Those who go on forums and act like a doctor can lead many people do acquire Hypervitaminosis D. You wont be preventing the flu, you'll be gaining coronary issues. Those with certain health issues shouldn't even be taking vitamin D.

Well I heard they contain fillet of a fenny snake, eye of newt and toe of frog, wool of bat and tongue of dog, lizard's leg and howlet's wing.

Fact is, as always, Winnipeg should research before he types. It'd save him tons of anti vaxxer false info embarrassment.

More BS, keeping your hands clean won't help? You have no common sense. All Doctors will say you are wrong, I just had a Vitamin D test last week. Doctors are very aware of what you are not.

Hand-to-eye, hand-to-nose, or hand-to-mouth transmission, yes I said washing hands is fine (cant you read) but it wont help for direct transmission nor the airborne route. That's not common sense; it's a fact.

I cant believe you go to a doctor. Did they hound you to get a flu vaccine? Take pharma drugs??? Have unneeded tests??

Obviously I have some clue, or I wouldn't know Winnipeg was again giving false info or your own false info. Hello. I figured there must be another reason why you're so fearful, I figured it had to be you didn't want to turn into a toad.

She wrote: "You can wash your hands all day long and it wont help a bit" Then voted and voted. But she is the only one that comments.

I go to Doctors, not CDC pharmacy reps. I take control of my health, not dictated by the CDC.

You are the one living in fear trying to figure it out.

You left a part out. What I said was "Washing hands is fine, except for that airborne route. You can wash your hands all day long and it wont help a bit" Washing your hands wont help for the airborne route. That is a fact and why people like you attempt to give false info, and then wonder why they have they flu. It's a bummer when you're wrong, isn't it?

As for those votes, grow up and deal with the fact that I have nothing to do with plenty who don't agree with your misinfo or off topic content.
