If you haven’t yet started to question the validity of vaccination, especially flu vaccines, perhaps this shocking and heartbreaking story will change your mind.
Keira Driscoll was only five-years-old when she passed away from the very same flu strain she had just been vaccinated against. Reports say she began to exhibit flu-like symptoms such as a cough and fever shortly after receiving a regular flu shot. Sadly, not long after the symptoms arrived, Keira was rushed to the hospital and put on life support, entered cardiac arrest and passed away.
It has been reported that Keira contracted influenza A in 2015 from the vaccine she was given. While it may seem unusual, the media has reported that this is in fact becoming an increasingly common phenomenon, and that dozens of children are becoming sick from receiving flu shots. In 2015, more people received a flu vaccine than the year before, but somehow more people also came down with the very illness they were vaccinated against. In fact, according to data published by the CDC — 56 children died during the 2015 flu season. In just the first week of the year, 19 children passed away from the flu.
The CDC has also admitted that up to 75% of individuals who get the flu vaccine will still get the flu. In the 2015 year, the CDC reported that their flu shot for the year was only a mere 23% effective. ABC News chief health and medical editor Dr. Richard Besser stated in an article for the network,”Between then and now the flu virus mutated significantly. Unfortunately, it is too late to make a change for this year. We are stuck with the vaccine we’ve got. CDC still recommends people get vaccinated since some protection is better than one.”
Apparently for children, that really isn’t the case. How can the CDC consciously recommend that people pay for a vaccine that doesn’t even work most of the time, especially when there is a potential for grievous side effects, like death and hospitalization? Are those not considered “serious risks” anymore? 56 children died in 2015. The CDC should be spending more time being concerned about their potential role in those deaths, and less time manufacturing another phony flu vaccine.
