Annual flu shots have been shown to be largely ineffective in preventing the flu. Despite this, flu shots are not scorned, but encouraged. Sadly, intensive ad campaigns and pharmacy convenience will do little to increase their effectiveness.
If that weren’t concerning enough, the validity of this form of medicine is questioned further by the chemical contents within the shots themselves. Vaccine inserts describe in detail the effects of their thimerosal and cell tissue filled products. Injecting foreign bodies and heavy metals into your bloodstream (if it doesn’t maim you outright) would actually serve to weaken your immune system. This undeniably would make you more vulnerable to all forms of disease, including the flu.
