Latest Flu Shot Linked to Seizures

Check the calendar, flu-shot season is here — and if you thought last year’s vaccine was bad, wait ’til you get a load of this one. They haven’t even started jabbing shoulders in earnest yet, and we’re already getting terrifying warnings from the feds — because one of the new vaccines has been linked to seizures in children.

Australia, just coming out of its flu season, had to suspend flu shots for kids — because little ones were suffering febrile seizures at 10 times the normal rate.

It’s bad enough that there’s a “normal rate” of seizures associated with flu shots. The fact that it’s now 10 times higher is just plain outrageous.

Ever see a febrile seizure? It’s one of the most frightening things a parent or grandparent could ever witness. The child’s temperature flies through the roof, causing the child to pass out, shake, stop breathing, and even turn blue.

Who knows what else will happen when this year’s jab goes into wide use… but the feds aren’t waiting. The CDC is already busy hawking vaccines, urging flu shots for every man, woman, and child older than six months.

That’s a pretty bold recommendation when you consider that there’s no evidence that flu shots cut flu deaths. None. Just look at what happened last year — despite all the dire warnings and predictions, we Americans thumbed our collective nose at the dangerous swine flu vaccine… and we pulled through the “pandemic” just fine.

Of course, the joke was on us because we paid for those vaccines whether we used them or not — but don’t get me started on that.

So this year, turn back the clock and make like it’s 2009 all over again. Skip the shot.

It’s like I say every year: Flu prevention starts and ends with good hygiene and a good immune system. Keep clean, eat well and take your vitamins, and you’ll be better protected than anyone who gets the vaccine.

And you won’t have to worry about the side effects.
