What You Don’t Know about the Flu Vaccine Could Kill You

chandler webbThe flu vaccine is suspected of killing a 19 year old boy from Utah. 

The flu vaccine has come under fire again after a teenager died from taking the influenza vaccine for the first time.

Chandler Webb was a healthy, regular teenage boy however after taking the flu vaccine during a routine health check he started experiencing the shakes, vomiting and a severe headache. He then slipped into a coma and passed away one month later.

His mother, Lori Webb is holding the flu vaccine responsible as it wasn’t until doctors administered him with the vaccine that he began experiencing symptoms.

“He was so healthy. He was pure. He should have been able to fight the flu. I wish he would have gotten the flu rather than this vaccination,” said a distraught Webb.

Doctors ran a variety of tests on young Webb however their reports turned up inconclusive. The doctors have now been legally banned from talking about the case.

While Mrs Webb is not trying to talk people out of having the flu vaccine, she urging people to become educated about its’ potential side effects.

About 130 million Americans receive the flu vaccine each year however there is little evidence to support it’s effects.

Numerous studies have been released suggesting that the flu vaccine is not effective even for high risk groups such as, children and the elderly.

One of these studies were conducted by the University of Michigan School of Public Health titled ‘Influenza Vaccine Effectiveness in the Community and the Household’ and they found that the vaccine had little effective and did not protect those who took it from the flu.


The manufacturers of the flu vaccine even print on their product insert that “there have been no controlled clinical trials demonstrating a decrease in influenza after vaccination. This vaccine has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential.”

Regardless of the numerous studies done showing the vaccines ineffectiveness, marketing campaigns, the media, and even doctors report that the vaccine has a high effectiveness rate. However, these statistics have come under speculation.

Back in 1994 the study in question, published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, saw nearly 1800 people over the age of 60 vaccinated with the flu vaccine or with a placebo.

The study concluded that the flu shot resulted in a 50 percent reduction of the flu however the individual statistics read much differently.

The study showed that 3% of those who were not vaccinated got the flu and 2% of those who were vaccinated got the flu. This 1% difference  suddenly became a 50% success rate because drug manufacturers are allowed to report efficacy of medications based on relative differences between those vaccinated and those non vaccinated and not the actual difference.

Despite the growing debate of the vaccines effectiveness, the flu vaccine also contains a harmful chemicals including Thimerosal which is a mercury derivative that contains up to 49% mercury.

Mercury is a known neurotoxin and interferes with the brain and nervous system. It is especially damaging to young children and the thimerosal present in flu vaccines exceeds the safety limit prescribed by the Environmental Protection Agency.

In Chandler Webb’s case, his official cause of death was reported as ‘swelling of the brain’, swelling Mrs Webb attributes to the flu vaccine.

Before he slipped into a coma, Mrs Webb recalls her son’s last words, “doctors, please save me.

  • Flu Vaccine

    Vaccinations are always case by case, some of them do some really nasty things to people, but just because some of them do, doesn’t mean vaccinations aren’t worth it.

    With the Flu vaccine, it protects against certain strains of the flu.

    It is possible that the flu vaccine made this boy sick, and as harsh as that is, that is an inherent risk we in society take. The vaccinations might compromise a few, and they may protect the many. “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few”. I don’t necessarily agree with it, but I understand the logic behind it. Everyday in life we are bombarded by potentially lethal substances, and sometimes in extraordinary cases some unlucky chain of events transpire and someone suffers for it.

    There are also arguments that because so many people get vaccinations, it makes it much less likely for those who aren’t vaccinated to get sick as well, because even though they aren’t vaccinated, those they come in contact with are. This can actually make the immune system too lazy to where when they do get sick, they get really sick, because the immune system needs to be kept active to keep it effective.

    We take these absurd risks with human life all the time though, hell on today of all days for the sake of bargains and consumerism, we risk people getting injured and trampled just at a shot at some of those great sales.

  • I agree that there are some vaccines that work and some that don’t. I myself have had most of my routine vaccines as a child and (knock on wood) I never had a problem.

    I do however, have a problem with the flu vaccine as there have been so many studies done on its ineffectiveness. Here are just some:
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22032844
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22895945
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23413420

    As I have begun to educate myself more on the medical world I am slowly discovering that a lot of medications and the studies behind them are just clever marketing.

    I dont think the risks of this particular vaccine are worth it. I would much rather the health system promote boosting the immunity through proper nutrition, Vitamin D and immune boosting foods like garlic, ginger and citrus. Maybe thats too idealistic but I just would be really wary about taking this vaccine which contains a lot of chemicals and doesn’t even really work.

  • Flu Vaccine

    A lot of it is just pharmaceutical control through fear. Like many other industries, if you can make people think they NEED something, you can make good money selling what they think they NEED.

    When it comes to scientific studies in general, I believe people should take it all with a grain of salt unless they truly truly research every aspect of it, because you will find studies claiming almost anything these days, and they will only share evidence that supports their claim, instead of building a conclusion based on all evidence.

  • True, I do agree with you there. There are plenty of studies that credit the vaccine and plenty that don’t. I guess its just up for the individual to make a decision on whether or not they get the vaccine. Can I ask, are you getting the flu vaccine this year? Or have you taken it? I would be curious to know if it helped you.

  • Flu Vaccine

    I’ve had the flu vaccine pretty frequently in my life. I don’t get sick very often in general though so I couldn’t say whether or not it was a good preventative measure, also because there are many strains of the flu and vaccinations don’t cover against all strains, even if I did get the flu it wouldn’t have proven the vaccination ineffective.

    I will not get the flu vaccine this year, not because I have anything against it though. It’s just not really something I worry about. Life will happen as it happens and while I do believe in being cautious with decisions so you don’t make any truly devastating mistakes, I don’t believe in a lot of the fear that is being sold to us all. I feel people often worry too much about things that have such a small chance of happening and let it control/stress them.

    I do believe flu vaccines are effective, I do not believe they are absolutely effective for everyone though, there are many other variables to factor in. I also believe given the right circumstances a vaccination could have horrible consequences on people, it’s all a matter of evaluting risk vs. reward for each individual person. That applies to everything in life. It’s possible that the flu vaccine is extremely inefficient, and that should definitely be investigated and studied, but I am also cautious of knee-jerk reactions based on the tragedy surrounding events that might be related to it.
