Flu Vaccine? It’s Not Protecting You as You Think

Flu Vaccine – A Very Misleading Sense of Protection

The flu vaccine is proving to be only about 10% effective this year.

flu vaccine & natural healthCDC: “While the impact of flu varies, it places a substantial burden on the health of people in the United States each year. CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9.2 million and 35.6 million illnesses, between 140,000 and 710,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 and 56,000 deaths annually since 2010.”    May 2017

The flu vaccine is no silver bullet. It is a false sense of security. People have become overly reliant on the flu vaccine – with all the pushing to get a vaccine.

Our guest today is both a pharmacist and a Natural Health Product (NHP) Expert. There is a great deal we need to know about the realities of the flu vaccine, and the many ways we can help protect ourselves from the multiple viruses that together comprise the “flu”.

Both in Canada & The United States our governments try and protect us with websites updated weekly on current flu facts.
