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.
