So, changed my headline from "Problem- Flu vaccine not effect. Solution? Ineffective but highly profitable antivirals" to the post heading " CDC Upsells Vaccine with Antivirals" Why?
Because that is exactly what the CDC is doing! This is a tried and true sales technique!
A sales strategy where the seller will provide opportunities to purchase related products or services, often for the sole purpose of making a larger sale.I will have much more to say about this big pharma scam. For now this:
- Federal officials from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on Thursday issued a health advisory to doctors warning them that a major flu virus strain circulating this year has mutated to the point that the current flu vaccine doesn't offer much protection against it.
- Although the flu shot protects against several strains of the virus, one strain—H3N2—has evolved to the point that just half of patients infected with it would benefit from this year's vaccine.
- Health authorities were quick to stress that it is still important to get the flu shot in order to protect against other major strains of the virus. But the CDC is also telling docs to prep for an unusually high number of cases among vaccinated patients by getting ready to prescribe two antivirals, Roche's Tamiflu and GSK's Relenza.
"Though reduced, this cross-protection might reduce the likelihood of severe outcomes such as hospitalization and death.
Useless antivirals too!
Antiviral drugs are largely ineffective for reducing hospital admissions and complications from influenza, and come with serious side-effects, according to a research review published by the Cochrane Collaboration today.
The drugs were stockpiled by governments across the world, including Australia’s, in response to the 2009 swine flu pandemic.
Cochrane, along with the British Medical Journal, is asking governments to consider whether they would choose to stockpile well-known antiviral Tamiflu in light of these findings, arguing the original evidence leading to the stockpiling was incomplete.
Please take your useless vaccine and supplement it with useless antivirals- Big pharma and their stockholders really, really need the $$$$ and the added bonus of you being weakened, sickly and perhaps having a psychotic episode (side effect of anti-virals- scrumptious)

Annual Flu Vaccine May Weaken Kids ImmunityRegarding money wasting vaccines in general:
The annual flu vaccine can weaken children's resistance to other types of influenza virus, including those that could cause a pandemic, according to a study published in the November issue of the Journal of Virology.
