“Canadian Flu Vaccine Paradox” Admits Vaccines Are Causing More Illness
Canadian mainstream media have taken a bold new step – admitting the problem that frequent vaccines are creating a cascade of more illnesses. And not just a greater number and frequency of illnesses but even lower protection against the very diseases the vaccines were supposed to protect against.
CBC News reports that it was originally called “the Canadian problem” – i.e. the problem of higher risk of pandemic flu illnesses among those who get the seasonal flu shot the previous year, or those who get frequent flu shots. They note that the problem is now seen in other countries such as Hong Kong, Japan and the U.S.
From CBC News:
People who receive flu vaccines year after year can sometimes show reduced protection, an effect that Canadian infectious disease specialists say muddies public health messages for annual flu vaccine campaigns.
During the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, researchers at the B.C. Centre for Disease Control originally thought seasonal flu shots from 2008 might offer extra protection against the new pandemic strain. They were puzzled to find instead, seasonal flu vaccination almost doubled the risk of infection with pandemic flu.
Dr. Danuta Skowronski and her colleagues really put this to the test. Aside from their initial conclusion they did five more studies last summer that showed the same results in people – and ferrets. They test on ferrets which, for some reason, are the best flu model in animal studies.
This was a unique finding in a unique context of dramatically mismatched vaccine to novel pandemic influenza virus.
