Fluad is currently being promoted for the elderly. From the FDA’s website (see reference 1), they state, “Fluad provides another alternative for a safe and effective influenza vaccine in people 65 years of age and older. Immunizing individuals in this age group is especially important because they bear the greatest burden of severe influenza disease and account for the majority of influenza-related hospitalizations and deaths.”
If you have senior friends or relatives you care about who might get coerced into getting THIS vaccine please make sure they know how dangerous this vaccine is likely to be.Since the immune response with the new Fluad vaccine has been shown to be comparable to the old flu vaccine, why would anyone consider the new vaccine to be better than the old ones? Keep in mind, the old flu vaccines fail nearly 99% of the elderly who receives them.
Although Fluad might not be an improvement for a flu vaccine, it may be associated with serious adverse effects. The science is not settled on whether it is safe to inject squalene in a human being. Squalene has been associated with serious illnesses when it is used in vaccines such as Gulf War Syndrome which affected thousands of U.S. soldiers who received squalene-containing vaccines in the first Gulf War. It is true that squalene is produced in our bodies naturally, but it is not true that it has been proven safe to inject it into our bodies. Squalene-containing vaccinations have also been associated with many serious autoimmune disorders including arthritis, Lupus, ALS, multiple sclerosis and Guillain Barre Syndrome.
