They’ll say just about ANYTHING to get you to roll up your sleeve for a flu shot or pneumonia jab.
That’s true ANY year.
But that’s extra-extra-extra true this year, where they’re starting early with the annual propaganda push for vaccination against flu and pneumonia.
They must REALLY want you to line up and get your shots…
Because they’re out with some of the WEIRDEST… WILDEST… and just plain WRONGEST claims yet.
The fact that they’re even MAKING these outrageous statements shows they’re CONVINCED they can play us for fools.
But you’re no sucker… and neither am I.
And I’m NOT going to let them get away with this stunt. Not today… and not ever!
The SNAKE OIL claims behind new vax push
Maybe it’s because so many people have been avoiding doctors during the pandemic that they’re DESPERATE for business.
Here’s what may be the kookiest of their absolutely WILD claims…
They say flu and pneumonia shots can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
The study presented at the (virtual, of course, because no one’s allowed out anymore) Alzheimer's Association International Conference suggests…
- pneumonia shot between ages 65 and 75 cuts the risk by 40% and
- flu shot cuts the risk by 17%.
There are SO many reasons this makes NO sense. Just look at that flu shot.
This isn’t a benefit of an annual flu shot, or a benefit of a flu shot in your later years.
According to the study, just ONE flu shot… at ANY point in your life… will cut the risk of Alzheimer’s for the REST of your life.
That’s just absurd.
The flu shot doesn’t even protect against FLU for the rest of your life. Heck, it barely protects against flu for a SEASON… yet somehow it can magically prevent Alzheimer’s, FOREVER?
What’s it gonna protect you from next? Shark attacks? Tornados?? Sharknados???
Then there’s the BIGGEST hole in the argument of all.
The SAME people urging you to get all of these shots are also telling you to STAY home.
If you’re following mainstream advice… if you’re AVOIDING everyone and everything and BATHING in hand sanitizer…
How in the world could you possibly be at risk of pneumonia or flu???
And wouldn’t GOING OUT to get those shots – especially if you have to visit a medical clinic for them – now put you at risk of the very infections you’re trying to avoid by staying home?
I’m not gonna sit here and lecture you on what to do or what not to do. There’s WAY too much of that everywhere else right now… and I think we’re ALL sick of it.
But I will tell you this…
NONE” of this makes a lick of sense.
So, all I can recommend is that you make the best decision for YOU… based on FACTS and SCIENCE… not FEAR and ANXIETY.
