Reinventing the Flu Shot (Again)Friday, February 26, 2010
WebMD, that awful, mainstream medical propaganda site, is running a story about the CDC making the flu shot universal for the next flu season – since this flu season didn’t pan out, of course.
The CDC almost certainly will make universal flu vaccination official U.S. policy for this fall’s 2010-2011 flu season, as it consistently follows the advice of the panel of outside experts, called the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
This comment from the article is actually quite funny:
Moreover, the universal recommendation simplifies the extremely complicated current recommendations that create confusion about who should and should not be vaccinated. And it makes it likely that insurers will cover flu shots for all healthy adults.
The “recommendations” are “extremely complicated” because they continually change due to Big Pharma’s push to include a larger population in the “risk” group. So, forcing people to put this stuff into their bodies, against their will, “simplifies” the question of who should get it? The ACIP met this week and decided that adults aged 19 to 49 years old are now a new risk group. Big Pharma ran out of people who “need” the shot because there are only so many children, pregnant women, and elderly to go around. Adding the 19 to 49 group will cover the bulk of the population.
Of course insurers will cover it, otherwise Big Pharma won’t be able to sell massive amounts for mega profits. The the swine flu hysteria didn’t pan out, and the vaccination was rejected by a majority of the population. The establishment is still reeling from that unexpected result, and they’ll keep reinventing flu shots until they can force it on everyone.
