The verdict is out on flu shots

Many medical experts now agree: it is more important to protect yourself and your family from the flu vaccine
than the flu itself

Let’s take a look at the reasons behind this verdict:

1. There is a total lack of REAL evidence that young children even benefit from flu shots

- A systematic review of 51 studies,
- involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months
- found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo

2. Also the shots are supposed to be able to protect against ONLY certain strains of the virus

- which means that if you come into contact with a different strain of virus
- you will still get the flu
