Dr. Brownstein: Flu Vaccines Fail Nearly all Who Get ThemIs it time for everyone to get the annual influenza vaccine? Don’t flu vaccines save lives? I think not. Flu vaccines fail nearly all who get them. The Big Pharma Cartel wants all 350 million of us to get vaccinated yearly in order to prevent the flu. That might be reasonable if the flu vaccine is beneficial to most who receive it. It is not.
