Dr. Brownstein: Another Study Showing Influenza Vaccine Failure - Flu Vaccine Fails 98% of People Who Receive ItThe flu and cold season is upon us. I have already seen numerous patients suffering with upper respiratory illnesses and even weathered my first bout. The CDC and the Powers-That-Be would have you believe that you should receive the influenza vaccine on a yearly basis. They claim that the flu vaccine can save thousands of lives. Of course, I have written to you many times that there is not a single study that has ever supported the claim that the flu vaccine saves any lives. In fact, the history of the flu vaccine shows clearly that it fails nearly all who take it.
