Skip to comments.Seasonal flu vaccines increase risk of pandemic H1N1 flu, stunned scientists discover
Posted on 04/08/2010 1:21:15 PM PDT by Scythian
(NaturalNews) I remember the H1N1 "swine flu" season of 2009 very well. People were rushing out to get vaccinated, scared half to death by the mainstream media which was pushing false reports that the swine flu would kill tens of millions of people and that only a vaccine could save you. The CDC and health authorities were pushing a double-barreled vaccine strategy that demanded people get both a seasonal flu shot as well as an H1N1 pandemic flu shot. Those who questioned the sensibility of vaccines for fighting the flu were attacked as "baby killers" for not kow-towing to the vaccine mythology that drives Big Pharma's profits to record profits nearly every flu season.
I specifically remember writing an article here on NaturalNews, warning people that taking a seasonal flu shot actually weakened your immune system and made you more susceptible to H1N1 swine flu (http://www.naturalnews.com/027102_v...). This suggestion earned me a highly accusatory email from a CDC employee who suggested that warning people to avoid the swine flu vaccine shot was equivalent to "an act of terrorism" and that all those who questioned vaccines should be arrested and stopped from writing anything on the internet ever again.
(Hilarious, isn't it, how deeply the vaccine mythology drives these vaccine-pushing nut jobs?)
Fast forward six months (or so) and now we have a new scientific paper published in one of the few remaining honest, independent medical journals out there: BLoS Medicine. The title of this study? Check it out:
Does Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Increase the Risk of Illness with the 2009 A/H1N1 Pandemic Virus?
Viboud C, Simonsen L (2010) Does Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Increase the Risk of Illness with the 2009 A/H1N1 Pandemic Virus? PLoS Med 7(4): e1000259. doi:10.1371/journal.pmed.1000259
Care to guess what the study found? In short, it found that people who received the seasonal flu vaccine shot in 2008 were up to 274% more likely to be infected by H1N1 swine flu than those who skipped the season flu shots.
the pols already passed obamacare. why the hype now?
Just last week, the government media was pushing people to get the H1N1 vaccine because it will soon expire, leaving tens of millions of doses to be dumped...yet another money pit promoted by BO.
Only about 40% of the people got the shots, proving once again that the people are much smarter than the government and its hyperventilating media water carriers.

I called BS on this right away. I knew it was another Al Gore type global scam.
I was smaet enough to refuse the shot. Thank goodness
H1N1 was not a scam. It’s a new strain of flu that millions of people contracted and we are lucky that it killed relatively few. Debating the merits of getting the vaccine is reasonable but calling it a scam is a bit much I think. That being said, the media, as usual, was derelict in it’s coverage.
Next time you have a gut feeling, pay attention.
It sounds like Oboma has reduced the surplus population. Better yet, they're all of breeding age. He got two birds with one stone.
Bet you a hundred that next year there will be a new unknown flu that is going to KILL THE WORLD!!! AAAAAAAHH!!
Let’s see we had bird flu. Had pig flu. Ok,ok, it has a common animal to be effective...
I hereby nominate “cat flu” to be the next one. We’ll call it “feline fever”.
That’s my vote anyway.
Very interesting article. This was the first year that my husband and I found out about Vitamin D, so we started taking it. Neither one of us even got a respiratory infection this year. Vit. D is great! We started out on 3,000 iu, then built it up to 6,000 iu. Now soon we’ll have to start taking it down for the summer months.
Also, we didn’t get a flu shot.
Maybe the old farts over 64 who aren’t allowed to get rationed flu vaccine - will have the last laugh.
I kind of like “llama flu.”
My teenagers were under pressure from school to get vaccinated. I gave them the choice and they chose Not to get the shot. None of us got sick at all this winter.
I went to doc for low Thyroid and found out I was low on Vitamin D. I've been taking it ever since.
Flu or flu ping.
Well, they’re starting the flu scare early this year I see.
“yet another money pit promoted by BO”
It was world-wide, not just here. I can see the drug companies following right along with WHO and the CDC.
Why not, they got paid.
Those vaccines were paid for- in part - by the stimulus bill.
@6 Billion was allocated to the drug companies for flu vaccines.

Didn’t Ted Nugent write a song about that?
The man was ahead of his time...
Llama doesn’t work. Its not common and not in the food chain.
You want to stay in the food chain to get the double scare effect of getting people scared of their food as well as being scared of some made up horrible disease.
The last couple of times they went with chicken and then pork. In the past they used to go with ethnicity, German flu, Asian flu, but I guess they thought they’d get more bang with food.
So what I am doing is changing it up again from food to pets. This should cause the same or more amount of fear and chaos.
Its just an idea, but that is where I would go for the next WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE!, vaccine scam.
I remember reading something along those lines of study coming out of Canada a few months back. These were the conclusions they were coming to. Of course, there was never a peep about it in the US MSM.
I’m sure the parents of the hundreds of children who died from H1N1 last year appreciate your sarcasm.
There were (as of maybe 2 months ago) about 1800 confirmed swine H1N1 child fatalities. Ones that tested positive. At least three times taht many children died that weren’t tested or the tests were negative as tests for this flu aren’t very accurate. So at least 5,000 children died so far from swine flu, could be higher but certainly not lower. And it’s not over.
The average number of children who die from flu every year is roughly 100 to 200.
And, of course, many children - as well as adults - are left with lingering mild to very serious sequelae - from severe asthma to heart problems to paralysis - as a direct result of getting this flu.
Anyone who laughs and scoffs is merely ingnorant.
As a child, I had every childhood disease known to man and I survived them. I have a cast-iron immune system. Never have had a flu shot and haven't needed one because I've never had the flu. I have always thought that the shots are dangerous and counter-productive. The Vit.D3 is the best thing to take, along with Vit.C, to keep the winter bugs away.
Did they die from the flu or from the vaccine?
We will never know...
I’ve had a poor immune system since early childhood. My mother was an alcoholic and smoked but I have no idea if that contributed or not.
I do a lot to support my health and overcome things that come along, but each person is an individual - some just have stronger constitutions, some less, and what we’ve been through in the past - poor choices by parents, by ourselves, or things that just happen (and emotional stress can damage health, too) - we each have a different hand of cards, so to speak.
I am strongly opposed to vaccines for a number of reasons, especially flu vaccine.
Anyway, the swine flu isn’t over yet. Seems to be increasing in the SE states and TX right now.
Yes, people are all different, and I realize that children who grew up in my era (Depression babies) are probably more healthy than others because we survived so many illnesses. As for now, I do believe that the Vitamin D3 is the best thing one can take during the winter months. I have not had so much as a sniffle this entire winter. My husband has had two colds (he wasn’t taking the D), but I didn’t catch them. I’ve always taken Vitamin C to prevent colds and to cure colds when I got them. I take a multi-vitamin, Vitamin E, Folic Acid, B-12, Fish Oil and a couple of herb things. No drugs and never antibiotics. I believe that antibiotics weaken the immune system. It’s the same principle as welfare. Give people welfare and they become useless.
