Known as Fluzone Quadrivalent, the new vaccine will be available during the upcoming 2013-14 flu season, and will rival a similar flu vaccine known as Fluarix Quadrivalent that gained FDA approval back in December. Both vaccines are injectable, and both have been approved for young children. However, Fluarix Quadrivalent, which is produced by GlaxoSmithKline, is only permitted in children ages three and older, while Fluzone Quadrivalent is permitted in children six months and older.
Though the official package insert for Fluzone does not contain a categorized list of ingredients, the “Description” section explains how the injection is prepared using embryonated chicken eggs. It also lists formaldehyde, sugar, Octylphenol Ethoxylate (Triton X-100), sodium chloride, sodium phosphate, and “an additional concentration factor” as ingredients in the vaccine. The four vaccine strains are apparently produced separately and added later to this toxic brew.
Fluzone’s package insert does, however, highlight the many dangers associated with use of the vaccine. These dangers, which the insert admits have a causal relationship to the vaccine, include a high risk of blood and lymphatic system disorders like thrombocytopenia; immune system disorders like anaphylaxis; eye disorders like ocular hyperemia; nervous system disorders like Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS); vascular disorders like vasculitis; respiratory, thoracic and mediastinal disorders like rhinitis; skin and subcutaneous tissue disorders like Stevens-Johnson syndrome; gastrointestinal disorders; and general pain.
If you are not convinced, take a look at the package insert for yourself:
A nearly identical list of potential side effects is included in the package insert for Fluarix as well. Everything from simple abdominal pain and irritation around the injection site to convulsions, palsy, and neuropathy is listed as a potential side effect of getting jabbed with Fluarix. And yet the FDA sees no problem allowing this toxic injection to be administered to children as young as three.

Skip the flu shot and avoid getting the flu the old fashioned way – proper nutrition and rest
Rather than subject your body to a barrage of toxins that can lead to serious and even permanent injury, why not boost your immune system the old fashioned way through proper nutrition and rest? If you are getting plenty of vitamin D from the sun or from vitamin D3 supplements; drinking plenty of clean water; supplementing with a food-based source of natural vitamin C; eating plenty of organic fruits and vegetables; and making sure your immune system is in tip-top shape by taking whole food-based zinc, selenium, garlic and other immune boosters, your chances of developing the flu are slim.
In a recent article, Dr. Alan R. Gaby, M.D., writing for HuffingtonPost.com, highlights a series of evidence-based research on natural foods and herbs that you can use to help boost your own immune system naturally this winter. Be sure to check out his article here:
