With Flu Season Over, Canada Shows Flu Shot To Be Worse Than Worthless

The results are in, and shatter the touted benefit claimed by flu shot advocates. New Brunswick's populace, the only Province in Canada urging people to take the seasonal flu vaccine early last October, came down with 50% higher flu sickness compared those Provinces that did not take the shot. This is shown by the prior four years flu data compiled weekly by the Public Health Agency of Canada, and comparing all of Canada's flu cases to cases only in New Brunswick. Anybody can access the informative official website called Canada Fluwatch and check for themselves, though it's a sure bet U.S. CDC officials will not even peek at anything across the border and counter to their in-house dogma.

In fact, last October in a world-wide teleconference to discuss Skowronski's and De Serres' Canada Study, U.S. CDC participants said they could not find any flaws in the Canada Study but nevertheless, no matter, Skowronski and De Serres just had to be incorrect. Is it not wonderful American citizens have such inquisitive, open minds at CDC? -- "just take your damn flu shot."

More research is needed here. One thing that can be said for sure is that there is a lot of money involved in producing flu vaccines. Making money trumps good science and safe flu shots that actually work.
