“Particularly influenza vaccine causes a disorder called Guillain-Barré Syndrome. It’s an autoimmune system problem in which you attack your own nerves and you get paralysis, usually descending from the top to the bottom. It’s usually not fatal, usually you end up paralyzed, and you recover some of the mobility, but some people die. This was most famous in 1976 when they had that big influenza epidemic in which there was only 1 case, and it really wasn’t a case, but they tried to give 30 million people the shot. And by the way, they paid $8 billion in damages. It’s been known even before that influenza vaccine causes Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
… It turns out some flu vaccines are higher (in causing Guillain-Barré Syndrome) than others. It depends on the strain, and you understand one of the problem with flu vaccines… which is, our law says that to bring out a vaccine you have to do two double blind field trials to show efficacy, and you have to show long-term safety. That’s been done on DPT, DTaP all the other vaccines. How do you do it on influenza? Well, they (public health officials) meet in the spring or late winter, and they pick strains for the next year. How do you test whether that vaccine works against those strains that haven’t come yet? First, they might be wrong on which strains come, and even if they’re right, how do you test it ahead of time? And how do you do long-term safety tests. And the answer is, they don’t.
And when I confront them [about this], they say, you can’t do that. Well, my answer to that is, the law doesn’t say you should do it if it’s convenient, the law says you have to do it. And if you don’t do it, you have to tell people that it’s an experimental vaccine that’s never been tested. All they do is give a few people the vaccine to see if you make antibody. That has no prediction whatsoever whether it’s really going to work or not. First, you don’t even know if it’s the right strain. Secondly, even if it’s the right strain, you don’t know if it’s going to work. And third, you have about two weeks to evaluate its safety. So they don’t have any safety. So they want to give 300 million doses of influenza vaccines—that’s to every man, woman and child—with no safety testing and no efficacy testing.
And also there’s another issue… If you follow their recommendations, you take… pregnant women take the vaccine, so you get it as a fetus, then you get it at 6 months, then you get it at a year and 2 and 3 and 4 and every year for the rest of your life. So if you live to be 80, you’ve had 82 shots of influenza [vaccine]. Where’s the safety study that you can give the same vaccine, or similar type vaccine, 82 times safely? We all know the theoretical risk, you might become immune to it, you might become autoimmune to it. They have no such studies. They haven’t studied that at all. They’re just going to do it, cause they’re experimenting on our lives and our children. … It’s good for them, it makes them a lot of money.
And understand, the CDC is not in the vaccine industry, the CDC is in the business of giving flu vaccines. Surely, they do all the vaccines. But if you count them up, there’s 20 million (doses) childhood vaccines a year… There’s 300 million (doses) influenza vaccines a year. Which one do you think matters to them, monetarily and power-wise, the 20 million or the 300 million? So they’re promoting flu vaccines, and unfortunately flu is the wrong thing to vaccinate against. Vaccine 101, if you have a disease that’s a reasonably serious disease that, if you get it and you recover, you don’t get it again, you could possibly vaccinate a population and protect them. But if you have a [vaccine] that you get this year and it doesn’t protect you next year and doesn’t protect you the next year, you’re chasing your tail…”
