OK, I read the entire document. Of course, I noticed right away that the quote at the top seemed to have a major error. in 1853, there was only one vaccine available, and it certainly wasn't mandated anywhere.
Intrigued, I ventured to pull up some of the references listed for the claims. Not in the least bit shocking, the data presented are complete misrepresentations of the data in the papers cited, if not out-and-out falsehoods. For instance, the 33% effectiveness related for preventing influenza in children under the age of 24 mos. is actually a 33% effectiveness in preventing flu-like illness. Indeed, the same article clearly states that the inhaled vaccine prevented 82% of illness. I found equal deception in the other claims that I read. I admit, I only read the first three or four claims and researched them, and finding them all to be misrepresentations/outright falsehoods, I quit.
Tim O'Shea (author of the pdf) should be ashamed by his open lies about the influenza vaccine. I am sorry that the first person posting here was fooled by his deception, and I encourage that person to read the articles as well.
i have read article after article on flu shots and the risk is to high for me to allow my child to recieve one.when they r older they can decide for themselves. the flu shot is not the only shot being offered. i heard that the shot guardisil is being offered for the girls you don't know if this shot will make them sterile in the future or not. there is not enough info about it or test studies to be sure. i hate to say it but there are not enough test studies for any shot.
