Well, I never ever thought it would come to this: our government is experimenting without consent on all people 65 or older with a new flu vaccine called “high dose” such that seniors have no choice! Is this real?! So now we are in a dictatorship in which we the people have no choice of what version of medication we take?
Let me explain what this high dose flu shot means. I don’t want to talk about what is inside since you can read that elsewhere. Rather I want to talk about two important elements.
1) Human drug trial without consent is unethical and illegal
2) The population most vulnerable to get hurt is used because they are also the most trusting and least likely to question what is about to hit them.
So let’s talk about point 1) Human drug trial without consent is unethical and illegal. In the United States we have very strict rules of ethical conduct when it comes to drug experimenting. I know since I experimented on humans and I had to go through a year of ethical committee approvals for each experiment. It is expensive, time-consuming and we always needed to have extra medical staff with us to check each person’s medical qualifications (vital signs, drug interactions, etc.,) as well as all through the experiment to be sure no one got ill, and then even follow-up guarantee for any ailments at our expense.
Flu vaccine is also a drug and it had its own clinical trial in 2013 which showed that indeed many seniors benefited from the enhanced (4 times) dose of vaccine but it also showed that they all got fever, felt ill, etc. And these were controlled groups so the clinical researchers knew the medical history of their patients and obviously as a clinical drug trial, they pick only healthy patients. Now here comes the season and the FDA says: let the high dose flu shot be provided such that all unlisted adverse side effects found in the population will be collected. And thus every single place one now goes to get a flu vaccine, they ask the age and bingo, without any explanation the senior gets the high dose!
A friend of mine went in to try to see if she could still get the regular dose even though she is over 65 and they told her NO. So what is going in here? This is an ultimatum by the government: you get the high dose like it or not; or if not, you can get none! Lovely, isn’t it! Forced experiment… this reminds me of a few historical events that I am sure you are all aware of and I do not want to list.
Let’s talk about point 2) The population most vulnerable to get hurt is used because they are also the most trusting and least likely to question what is about to hit them. What will happen to all the seniors who have no idea what they are getting, they end up with fever and feel ill and stuff hospital ER waiting rooms? Whose expense will that be? (They are all on Medicare after age 65! So you pay for that!!!! You who still work!)
What happens with those seniors whose health condition cannot handle a 4-times dose of vaccine? What if they get injured or die? A class action lawsuit that the FDA will have to pay–in other words you and I pay since the FDA is a government organization whose salary is from us the people!
I have always believed in flu shots and get them religiously every year. I am not yet 65 and so I still received the “old weak one.” I am waiting to see though if anyone gets hurt. Because if they do; my advise: class action lawsuit against the FDA! Let’s change some laws here! Let’s change the uninformed consent kind of experimenting, which also incorporates off-label prescription. Let us change the law!
