Promotion of influenza vaccines is one of the most visible and aggressive public health policies today. Twenty years ago, in 1990, 32 million doses of influenza vaccine were available in the United States. Today around 135 million doses of influenza vaccine annually enter the US market, with vaccinations administered in drug stores, supermarkets—even some drive-throughs. This enormous growth has not been fueled by popular demand but instead by a public health campaign that delivers a straightforward, who-in-their-right-mind-could-possibly-disagree message: influenza is a serious disease, we are all at risk of complications from influenza, the flu shot is virtually risk free, and vaccination saves lives. Through this lens, the lack of influenza vaccine availability for all 315 million US citizens seems to border on the unethical. Yet across the country, mandatory influenza vaccination policies have cropped up, particularly in healthcare facilities,1 precisely because not everyone wants the vaccination, and compulsion appears the only way to achieve high vaccination rates.2
“But since 2000, the concept of who is “at risk” has rapidly expanded, incrementally encompassing greater swathes of the general population…” VLA comment: Pregnant women were targeted and received a double dosing of flu vaccine (seasonal and H1N1 in 2009/10 faux pandemic causing a 4,250% rise in miscarriage & stillbirth reports. This fact has been thoroughly covered up by the CDC. Read study & backstory…
Julie Gerberding, head of the CDC, at that time, (and now the head of Merck Vaccine division) capitulated due to the efforts of now former Congressmen Burton and Dr. Dave Weldon, to remove (reduce) the mercury out of the 15 vaccines that were being given to our kids from the 1980s to around 2001. However, they were not “legislated” to take the Thimerosal out of the 15 vaccines. This would leave the door to put mercury (Thimerosal) in any other vaccines.
It was anticipated by this elite intelligentsia that the removal of mercury from 15 childhood vaccines would precipitate an Autism – Autism spectrum decline. This was a danger and would link the history of CDC recommended mercury vaccines to the epidemic of Autism. The CDC and the public health service/epidemic intelligent service…quasi military, began to promote the flu shot, which happens to have 25mcgs of mercury but were not on the childhood vaccine schedule at the time. Part of the strategy included the passing of legislation in 2004/5 (Bioshield and PREP Act) to give complete immunity to vaccine providers; Working with WHO to change the definition of a pandemic. Hence what was propagandized and promoted as a H1N1 PANDEMIC was, in reality, a control management bioweaponry “Drill”.
States, being given the nod by national via the long arms of the CDC (State Health Departments), permitted the passage of State legislation in removing Thimerosal from vaccines however, “with the exception of the flu shot “and/or “in cases of emergency”, thus establishing an “emergency” clause…whereby anything goes… as well as securing the continuance of Thimerosal in the flu shot. However, it was necessary to add a radical component to the strategy that would ensure, if not bolster, the cases of Autism & Autism Spectrum. That strategy was to heavily promote the injection of the flu shot with Thimersal to pregnant women in any trimester -that is, in-utero – experimenting with a new concept – immunizing children in-utero.
The CDC was dabbling in recommending flu shots in the 90s and early 2000 despite the fact that the flu shot for pregnant women was “Category C” - Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks. However the 2009/10 flu season in pandemic proportions was the perfect storm…to target the nation’s OB/GYNs urging them to vaccinate their patients in fear of Pandemic death via direct marketing and misleading studies published in such medical journals under the Elsevier umbrella. The uptake of vaccination for pregnant women was a success – putting fear in the hearts of newly pregnant women – that if they didn’t get the flu shot they could kill their baby.
The Public Relations drive to vaccinate pregnant women with an untested H1N1 vaccine was based on a CDC study published in an Elsevier publication-American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynocology (AJOG) by Dr. Alicia Siston. The National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW) had some email exchange with Dr. Siston and was told that most of the cases were not confirmed H1N1 virus cases. Nor was the medical condition of the subjects who may have had special health challenges noted. However, FOIA requests were dismissed.
Since then NCOW has noted that Elsevier publications such as Vaccine Journal, Journal Pediatrics and AJOG enjoy a cozy complicit relationship with the CDC promoting the CDC propaganda with deceptive, misleading, well timed and strategic studies targeting health professionals. The backstory on the 2009 flu pandemic and pregnant women is a well documented model of world wide CDC/journal/PR deception. It is a must read – herein you will see the model structure of the CDC propaganda machine which includes influencing and passing national and state legislation, flaw but published studies in peer reviewed journals targeting physicians and researchers, use of non profit organization PR machines, world wide media channels influencing the public – all resulting in a world wide support platform to ensure the continuity of the CDC pregnancy vaccine program despite the fact that it killed and disabled an entire generation. Today pregnant women are recommended to get 4 vaccine doses – Trivalent influenza (without any mention of its mercury content-25mcgs); Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria & Pertusis (without previous reliable studies).
