“If you’re not sick yet, it’s not too late to get a shot.” – Walter Gunn, Epidemiologist with the Federal Center for Disease Control, Atlanta.
I had to laugh when I read that the first time.
I’m adding on to a previous blog I wrote a few weeks ago as soon as I heard the dreaded marketing message, “Get YOUR Flu Shot… TODAY!” Here is that original blog. You see, they are providing these flu vaccines at my work to the employees, free of monetary charge to the employee. A sign up sheet has been printed up with big, bold, beautiful rainbow colored, all capital letters, “Sign up for your Flue shot”. The sheet has been placed in an openly visible area where there is no way anyone who wanted to get the shot would miss it. It has been there for at least a week. On top of that and notice has also been put up on the company intranet to sign up, I have had no less than 4 Managers ask me if I’ve signed up yet or if I wanted to sign up for the shot. Almost like it’s a friggin lottery, GET YOUR FREE FLU SHOT TODAY! Then again, now that I think about it, it is sort of like a lottery in a few ways. None of which would mean you got a great reward for taking the risk however.
Yesterday ANOTHER manager came up to me, pinched my arm and asked, “Flue shot? Have you signed up for your flu shot yet?” I said, in a polite tone, “Nope. Not for me.” He pinched me again, “C’mon! You’re ‘Miss Healthy!’ Why aren’t you getting the flu shot?!” I said, “Well, there are several reasons. I began telling him why I, personally choose not to get YOUR flu shot..it really isn’t for me so it definitely isn’t MY flu shot!
The first reason I told him was THEY CONTAIN MERCURY. A Neurotoxin. He asked, “why do they contain mercury?” To which I stated, “good question!” here is the answer..
Organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control have told you mercury in the vaccines isn’t bad for us, but as a precaution, it will be taken out of the vaccines.
Now the same organizations are telling parents if mercury isn’t kept it in the vaccines, millions will suffer. Why? Removing the mercury from vaccines would cause a major disruption in the manufacturing and supply of vaccines.
Much of the evidence on the toxicity of thimerosal was swept under the rug at a secret meeting held by the CDC in Simpsonwood, Georgia. Following are a few quotes from that meeting, I think you will see why the CDC wants to keep the lid on thimerosal.
Here are three important quotes from the Simpsonwood Document:
“…the number of dose related relationships [between mercury and autism] are linear and statistically significant. You can play with this all you want. They are linear. They are statistically significant. “- Dr. William Weil, American Academy of Pediatrics. Simpsonwood, GA, June 7, 2000
“Forgive this personal comment, but I got called out at eight o’clock for an emergency call and my daughter-in-law delivered a son by c-section. Our first male in the line of the next generation and I do not want that grandson to get a Thimerosal containing vaccine until we know better what is going on. It will probably take a long time. In the meantime, and I know there are probably implications for this internationally, but in the meanwhile I think I want that grandson to only be given Thimerosal-free vaccines.” - Dr. Robert Johnson, Immunologist, University of Colorado, Simpsonwood, GA, June 7, 2000
“But there is now the point at which the research results have to be handled, and even if this committee decides that there is no association and that information gets out, the work has been done and through the freedom of information that will be taken by others and will be used in other ways beyond the control of this group. And I am very concerned about that as I suspect that it is already too late to do anything regardless of any professional body and what they say…My mandate as I sit here in this group is to make sure at the end of the day that 100,000,000 are immunized with DTP, Hepatitis B and if possible Hib, this year, next year and for many years to come, and that will have to be with thimerosal containing vaccines unless a miracle occurs and an alternative is found quickly and is tried and found to be safe.” - Dr. John Clements, World Health Organization, Simpsonwood, GA, June 7, 2000  – See more at: Vactruth

“Thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative, has been the focus of intense scrutiny by the U.S. Congress and the news media. Thimerosal is no longer used as a preservative in any childhood vaccine with the exception of the influenza vaccine. Attention by the news media has caused some parents to fear that thimerosal contained in vaccines might have harmed their children.
Removal of thimerosal from vaccines was precipitated by an amendment to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Modernization Act that was signed into law on November 21, 1997. The amendment gave the FDA two years to “compile a list of drugs and foods that contain intentionally introduced mercury compounds and …[to] provide a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the mercury compounds in the list….” The amendment arose from a long-standing interest in lessening human exposure to mercury, a known neurotoxin and nephrotoxin.” via Vaccine Education Center
Hmm. ” A long standing interest in lessening human exposure to mercury…removed from all other vaccines except the flu vaccine. This is a NEUROTOXIN people! You are poisoning your nervous system! Risking getting GBS? Why have the number of people being diagnosed with MS rising or let me rephrase that.. the number of people with “MS symptoms” but they can’t be diagnosed as having MS because they don’t have more than one lesion?
The second reason I told him was because the CDC admitted they have no evidence that getting the flu shot will actually prevent you from getting the flu! Why? The flu vaccine is based on “educated” guessing, not good science. Lawrence Schonberger, a CDC epidemiologist, ” We got the right antigens into the vaccine this year, ” he says. It’s something of a guessing game. “This year we guessed the Beijing. We’re now trying to make decisions on what goes into the vaccine for next year.” Schonberger says.
In addition, these flu shots are created by mixing various flu virus strains, the top 3 flu virus strains prevalent in Asia in March of the same year the shot is to be given in the USA in the Fall (toxic germs) with formaldehyde, MSG, sodium chloride and mercury. They hurry and mass produce the vaccine so it will be available in the Fall in the USA. but by then the virus has moved, and mutated along the way. So even if it WERE one of the three suspected virus strains they thought would be one of the ones to “hit the USA” it has had the opportunity to mutate itself before it has even arrived!
Let’s just get on with the good stuff, shall we?! Taken from NaturalNews.com I give you all the reasons why I choose for myself, and my children NOT to venture down this road of uncertainty. Here is my disclaimer, if you are one of those who are in the “Severe Risk” groups (elderly who could potentially die from flu complications like pneumonia)…you need to determine if getting this shot could be the worse than if you got the flu. For everyone, the choice is yours and you don’t need to feel pressured or forced into putting this into your body. In my opinion, anyone who has an Auto-Immune issue, should stay away from this one! Again, with it containing a neurotoxin..well, you get it. I hope.
There are several varieties of the flu vaccine available today. Although each vaccine can contain different ingredients – here’s a list of the many possible toxic additives:
* Egg Protein.. not normally “bad” for you unless you have egg allergies. However, growing the virus to create the vaccine in chicken embryo’s and this would mean you are getting foreign DNA put into your system and from what I see, they ALL have that.

Again, your health is YOUR responsibility. Eat healthy, live healthy habits by getting enough whole dense nutrition and vitamins, wash your hands, get enough sleep, exercise, and get outside for fresh air. You still may get the flu (my husband hasn’t gotten the flu shot since he HAD to in the military when he was 23 years old and has never gotten the flu, he’s now 42) but for myself, this is an easy choice. There is a lot of money invested in these for-profit pharmaceutical companies so the more they can get you to buy into what they are selling, the better their profits are and they are making money and two things work well, scare tactics and the false implication that you and your loved ones are being protected.
