'An unusual viral strain is dominating flu activity across the United States and may be one reason for the severe infections in children so far, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and this season’s influenza vaccine is not a close match for the virus. There are different types of flu viruses, and the strain causing illnesses in most parts of the country  is an influenza B virus. In most years, the A strain of influenza dominates during the early months, and the B strain shows up toward the end. Flu activity also started early this season, with some cases showing up by July. In more typical seasons, flu activity starts around October and lasts through March or April.'

I live in woodland suburbs near NYC. Everyone I know, and all whom I speak to, across the nation are sick or has a sick child or relative. Those who had a flu shot, have a less intense illness, but are still very, sick.

What about you and your family?

One should keep a healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to Big Pharma and their shock troops at the CDC. Corporate media's spin on 'anti-vaxxers' wants you to consider them the new lepers... These are people QUESTIONING vaccine safety which is logcial when charts clearly show American children in the mid-80's receiving 11 different vaccines before graduating school had on average 12% chronic conditions. Now schoolchildren receive 72 vaccine doses by the time they reach graduation and the chronic condition rate has leapt to over 50%. Yet, most people still blindly repeat "Vaccines' are safe and effective".

One reads GMO's, food additives, pollution, toxic cleaners and personal care products are contributing to this, yet why is it that the increased vaccination schedule is totally missing from the lineup?

California recenly took away medical exceptions for schoolchildren. If your child has experienced a seizure from a previous vaccine, this is now not considered reason enough to avoid vaccination with the same compound. Yes, you read that right. One exception does remain - only if the vaccine triggered an anaphylactic shock.

Anyone questioning vaccines and the forthcoming vaccine mandates for adults as well (Healthy People 2020) is on the right side of history. Wtness this CDD approval committee for the most recent version of the Hep B vaccine - inspires confidence, doesn't it?

"14 Myocardial Infarctions (Heart attacks) in the group receiving Hepislav B vaccination, while 2 in the control group suffered MI.

The Doctors on the panel had excellent and reasonable questions, the kind of questions we in the vaccine safety world are often asking. The Dr's were given shoddy answers. They still voted 100% for approval of this vaccine."

Recent Texas school whooping cough outbreak despite 100% vaccination rate explained here - start at 54:00
