This Years Flu Vaccine Effectiveness Not Significantly Different Then Zero

I'm obviously ignoring the CBC's misleading headline
"The effectiveness of this season's flu shot has been extremely low, with the vaccine preventing only 10 to 20 per cent of infections caused by the dominant H3N2 strain affecting Canadians, researchers have found"
Let's talk about that 10 to 20 percent range. I'd think the number should be more specific and they are- a bit closer to the end of the article at CBC. Here, however, I'm giving priority to accuracy.
"The researchers, members of the Canadian Sentinel Practitioner Surveillance Network, found the flu shot was 17 per cent effective in preventing the respiratory illness from the H3N2 virus overall, but only 10 per cent effective for working-age adults 20 to 64.
To put the figures in context, a vaccine effectiveness of 10 per cent means nine in 100 people who got the shot would still come down with the flu, compared to 10 people out of 100 who weren't vaccinated, Skowronski explained."
 Not significantly different then zero, indeed. Let's restate that:

*A vaccine effectiveness of 10 percent means 9 out of 100 people who were vaccinated will still get the flu

* When compared to 10 out of 100 unvaccinated persons who may also get the flu.

Not significantly different then zero. Except the vaccinated persons have been injected with carcinogenic and mutagenic ingredients that are contained in vaccines, but are conveniently unmentioned. Aluminum, mercury and other toxic chemicals

"Neither estimate was significantly different from zero, so we can't rule out the possibility of no protection," Skowronski said of the Canadian and Australian findings.
"Neither estimate was significantly different from zero, so we can't rule out the possibility of no protection" 
"So it's not a big reduction in risk for the H3N2 component this season."

The bottom line is the protection for the H3N2 virus is low this season, says Dr. Danuta Skowronski.
 "That means people who were vaccinated should not consider themselves invincible for this season," said lead researcher Dr. Danuta Skowronski, an infectious diseases expert at the BC Centre for Disease Control.
"The bottom line is the protection for the H3N2 virus is low this season."
The mid-season estimate for the vaccine's ability to provide protection from this particular influenza strain is in line with what Australia experienced during the southern hemisphere's flu season, which ended in late August as Canada's was about to begin.
CBC, again

Dr. Robert Strang, the province's chief medical officer of health, said this year's the flu shot is only about 10 per cent effective against what is likely to become to most prevalent strain.
For as long as I've blogged this has been the news year after year regarding the flu vaccine.
Yet, year after year the vaccine is flogged shamelessly by the state and year after year it's later admitted to be ineffective. Except for the toxic ingredients injected into your blood stream- That's for keeps. Year after year.

  1. Here's their big idea:

    "The dream is to develop a “universal flu vaccine,” one that could be given once or twice in toddlerhood like an MMR vaccine, or boosted a few times in your life as whooping-cough shots are."

    Penny, I'm going to take this space, since it's on topic, to gripe a little. As I mentioned before, we're in the process of moving back to Ohio to care for our elderly, widowed fathers. I'm living with my father-in-law, 89 and big believer in the teevee and newspaper news. My husband and I do not have a television and have not missed it once. My father-in-law, however, has the teevee going all. day. long. So I have the pleasure of hearing the latest b.s. in politics plus the fear-porn with the flu. He'll listen to the latest "casualties" and then proceed to tell me about it over breakfast or dinner. The image I get when he recounts the latest is like when I was about twelve and girlfriends sit around and tell ghost stories or scary stories. There is no point in telling him that people do not just go to bed when they don't feel well and end up dead. But that is apparently the stories that are being sold.

    I liked this: "Except for the toxic ingredients injected into your blood stream- That's for keeps. Year after year." So true.

    1. Hey Gwen:

      Gripe away girl :)

      That dream reads like an insane nightmare. I was reading a pdf regarding vaccinations here in Ontario, Canada- Doctors get paid per shot and a bonus for hitting targets- it's a racket, pure and simple. Stats on how much in bought and paid for vaccines are tossed. What a gross waste of taxpayer dollars.

      I understand the whole tv thing! And the image as you present it is a good visualization of that kind of chatter

      Sadly the toxic ingredients are yours to keep and accumulate- wish more people would think about that!
