Should the Influenza Vaccine or any Other Vaccine be Compulsory?
This is not Anti-Vaccination Information. It is intended as Pro-Safe Vaccination and Pro-Choice, Informed Consent Education
Recently my son Josh who is a teacher received some information from his school about a Nursing Organization that was planning to visit his school to administer the flu vaccine.
In part the publication which received its statistics from a Medical Doctor said the following:-
“During winter up to 25% of the population can get influenza and of these, 70-90% would have been prevented by the Flu Vaccine. The vaccine contains the four most likely strains expected to occur, but new strains can develop as winter progresses and existing strains mutate. So the answer is, about 80% of the time, the vaccine will completely prevent the Flu.”
Josh contacted the spokesperson and asked for the “references” that the information was based on. The Spokesperson said he would check it out and get back to him.
Josh did his own research and submitted this to the spokesperson.
“According to the “Cochrane Library”, widely considered the highest level of evidence due to systematic reviews conducted by independent researchers, the effectiveness or benefit of the influenza vaccination compared to none vaccination is between 1-2%, with little or no reduction in work, and “may” lead to a small reduction in hospitalization.”
This a quote from the Cochrane Library website (see link below).
“We found 52 clinical trials of over 80,000 adults. We were unable to determine the impact of bias on about 70% of the included studies due to insufficient reporting of details. Around 15% of the included studies were well designed and conducted. We focused on reporting of results from 25 studies that looked at inactivated vaccines. Injected influenza vaccines probably have a small protective effect against influenza and influenza‐like illness (ILI), (moderate‐certainty evidence),
Inactivated vaccines can reduce the proportion of healthy adults (including pregnant women) who have influenza and ILI, but their impact is modest. We are uncertain about the effects of inactivated vaccines on working days lost or serious complications of influenza during influenza season.
Healthy adults who receive inactivated parenteral influenza vaccine rather than no vaccine probably have a 1% lower risk of experiencing influenza over a single influenza season (2.3% versus 1%, moderate‐certainty evidence) and probably have a 3.4% lower risk of experiencing influenza‐like illness (ILI) (21.5% versus 18.1%, moderate‐certainty evidence).”
