Standing Your Ground Against Forced Flu Vaccines
Op-Ed by Rosanne Lindsay, Naturopath
There is no such thing as The Flu Season. Yet, as Summer turns to Fall, news of the Flu Season goes viral. ‘Tis the season that the CDC ramps up the fear factor to warn people of impending doom from invisible viruses that naturally circulate in the population. Once recognized as a mild infection that required rest and fluids, the flu has suddenly morphed into a Harbinger of Doom that requires new responsibilities of every citizen.
In 2013, England, published a report in the Independent declaring that getting vaccinated is a civic duty. A campaign was launched to increase adult vaccination rates against seasonal influenza, pneumococcal diseases, whooping cough, shingles, diphtheria and tetanus. Since 2013, intimidation by world health officials has only grown bolder. Yet, mass vaccination campaigns are nothing new.
During the nineteenth century, smallpox vaccination was made compulsory under state laws in the US. and in Europe. In the twentieth century, vaccines for diphtheria, measles, mumps, and rubella were managed by governmental entities and was eventually required for public school attendance. In fact, school-located vaccination programs became a vehicle for increasing vaccination rates. Once the World Health Organization (WHO) was developed in 1948, vaccine campaigns went global.
When government officials coerce people into injecting a syringe of known toxins into their bodies for natural, cyclic infections that are never eradicated, then it is time to turn off the rhetoric and begin to think for yourself. Michelle Krinsky, RN, knows well how intimidation works and how to trust her own wisdom. As a registered nurse, Michelle once practiced neonatal nursing in an Ohio hospital for 29 years during her 35-year long nursing career. In 2017, she faced a life-changing decision: get an annual flu shot or get the boot. After a previous serious reaction to the flu vaccine, she declined the shot, choosing her health over her job. To listen to her story in her own words, tune in to Thursday’s Nature of Healing podcast.
Michelle is not alone in forfeiting her job for declining the flu vaccine. For many years, hospital workers in the U.S. have lived under medical mandates that are fast becoming a prescription for all ages. Vaccine mandates are being beta-tested from California to New York, in hospitals, and in nursing homes under state statutes and regulations. These test markets are a prelude to The Healthy People 2020 Act, where all adults, everywhere, will be required to catch up on their vaccines. However, independent research shows that “there is no evidence that they (flu vaccines) affect complications, such as pneumonia, or transmission.”
It is ironic that government agencies that promote the flu vaccine, with its associated adverse effects, fail to acknowledge published medical journal studies showing the flu vaccine is not only ineffective, but harmful. Based on vaccine injury compensation data, the flu vaccine is dubbed the most dangerous vaccine. In a world where science is king, those who claim to be in charge seem to ignore their own scientific studies:
- Published data in the 2011 Journal of Autoimmunity and the 2012 J Trace Elem Med Biol. shows aluminum adjuvants in vaccines, including the flu vaccine, can induce autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome, (ASIA), which include encephalitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, macrophagic myofasciitis, subcutaneous pseudolymphoma, and siliconosis.
- Adjuvants in the flu vaccine have been associated with an increase in antibodies leading to antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), also known as Hughes Syndrome. The alum-antigen in many vaccines is identical to phospholipids, which form the cell membrane in every cell, it can attack any part of the body – the eye, cardiovascular system, brain, nerves, skin, reproductive system – but is becoming known for causing heart attacks and fetal death.(Journal Lupus. June 2012.)
- Children who get flu vaccine are at three times the risk for hospitalization for flu! (American Thoracic Society).
- The 2010 Cochrane Database Systems Review – a systems review of primary research in human health care and health policy – found “no evidence that flu vaccines affect complications, such as pneumonia, hospitalization transmission of flu between people or death.” Further, claims that the flu vaccine cuts elderly deaths in half were negated: “Due to poor quality data of the available evidence any conclusions regarding the effects of influenza vaccines for people aged 65 years or older cannot be drawn.”
- In the aftermath of the 2009/2010 swine flu scare, a 2010 study in the British Medical Journal showed that children in England and throughout the world given the Pandemrix flu vaccine had a 1,400 percent increased risk of developing narcolepsy compared to those not vaccinated.
- A 2011 study in the Journal Vaccine, showed inflammatory adverse events, such as preeclampsia and preterm birth, among pregnant women taking the trivalent influenza vaccine.
- A 2011 study in the Journal of Internal Medicine revealed flu shots result in inflammatory cardiovascular changes indicative of increased risk for serious heart-related events such as heart attack.
- According to a 2012 double-blind, randomized, controlled trial in Clin Infect Dis. March 15, 2012, (the first of its kind) conducted in healthy children 6 to 15 years of age, getting a flu shot was found to increase the risk of other respiratory viral infections over four-fold.
- According to a 2005 study published by Simonsen et al. in the Archives of Internal Medicine, “There are not enough influenza-related deaths to support the conclusion that vaccination can reduce total winter mortality among the U.S. elderly population by as much as half.”
In light of flu vaccine requirements for medical staff, an open 2013 letter was published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, questioning whether such mandates are medically warranted and ethically correct, and citing that the flu vaccine: 1) is a “statistical gamble” in targeting actual circulating viruses; 2) shows seventy percent of people are already immune at the time of vaccination, according to FDA studies; and 3) shows no evidence that it affects complications of pneumonia or transmission from person to person, as advertised. No answer ever followed.
Do Not Volunteer for “Mandatory” Vaccines
As hospitals in the U.S. continue to coerce staff to “get the jab” or forfeit their job, it is increasingly clear that official mandates do not require scientific scrutiny. When people give authority to the State governments, they can expect tyranny in the form of mandates. This is a perfect time to question authority and falsehoods when the risk of harm is obvious.
There are no mandates in a free society unless you ALLOW it. To know you are a Freewill Being means you do not volunteer for mandated vaccines. When you see Totalitarian tactics, choose against them. Undo the conditioning. When you see Panic Propaganda in the news cycle, turn off the news. Listen to my podcast on The Playbook of Tyranny and How to Close It. If you do not protect your rights, be prepared to lose them. If enough people say NO, the tide will shift. There is always a choice. So choose wisely.
When people realize they are born healers with defense systems called immune systems, there will be no reliance on chemical-laden injections that offer artificial immunity. You can choose to boost immunity using organic, nutrient-rich foods, herbal supplements, naturopathy, and homeopathy. Colds and flus are part of a natural immune response by the body to strengthen itself. Rest and Nature are the best remedies. Infectious disease is, and has always been, a right of passage to life-long immunity.
On the verge of draconian medical mandates the question that must be asked is Why fear the body’s natural ability to heal itself when evidence shows there is more to fear from the flu shot?
