    Looks like the pro-vaccine group has not yet provided “ghost written” responses to this article.

    The CDC approves every vaccine the vaccine makers come up with. Also, the CDC has around 20 vaccine patents. So the CDC gets money each time someone is vaccinated!!

    Clearly, the CDC is an institution with a lot vested in vaccines. Is it any surprise that CDC uses all means at its disposal to promote vaccines? No one pays for the damages or very little is paid some of the time. Families have to bear lifelong burdens by themselves.

    There is a whole generation of Autistic kids coming into their 20s with little or no support from the states. When will all this stop? Only if we care enough to repeal the 1986 law that has shielded the vaccine makers since 1986.

    “It is a conflict of interest for DHHS to be in charge of vaccine safety and also license vaccines, and take money from drug companies to fast track vaccines, and partner with drug companies to develop and share profits from vaccine sales, and make national vaccine policies that get turned into state vaccine laws, while also deciding which children will and will not get a vaccine injury compensation award. That is too much power for one federal agency.”

    Isn’t that way too much power for any government, not just a particular agency?

    If only 10 to 30 percent of flu-like respiratory illnesses at any point in a given flu season are actually caused by influenza type A or B, which is what the flu shot is supposed to prevent, then how is it even theoretically possible for them to be 50% effective (the high end of the range provided)?

      The 10-30 is the percent OF THOSE WHO GOT A RESPIRATORY ILLNESS irrespective of any shot or not….

      The 50 is the percent OF THOSE WHO GOT THE SHOT…

      Do you see… the group of those who got the shot could include not only some of the 10-30% of respiratory illnesses that were flu but also some illnesses that were not, plus some with no illnesses at all, just that the flu&shot segment is half the size of the shot-group..

      venn diagramming would help you visualize the percents and see the various overlaps of groups.

      I believe they generally test for influenza specifically in the field trials. If the number of actual influenza cases matching vaccine strain in the “unvaccinated” group is about two in a hundred then something like 1 in 100 cases in the vaccinated group might be “50% effective.”
