CDC Calls the Flu Vaccine a Failure

 In a new study out Thursday from the Centers for Disease Control, the vaccine proved effective just over half of the time. And among seniors who are 65 years old and older, one of the most vulnerable populations, the vaccine only offered nine percent protection (NBCNews.com). 

I, for one, do not get the flu shot and likely never will.   Since receiving the flu shot is a personal choice, I urge everyone to become well informed about the flu shot.

As a chiropractor, I have nurses who are patients who are required to get the flu shot.  One nurse reported that they often all get vaccinated the same day—and that soon thereafter they are short staffed because so many of the nurses who had received the shot, have to call in sick. That goes counter to what I believe is health! 

I also see it as a money maker for vaccination companies.  Why else would local grocery stores be displaying large banners stating they offer the flu shot?!  I prefer chiropractic which strengthens the body’s immune response—without injections.

Best in health, naturally,
Dr. Marc Davis
