VACCINE LIBERATION ARMY – Based on apparently the only double-blind placebo-controlled influenza vaccination and outcomes study conducted (in healthy children 6 to 15 years of age), which has been published in a peer-reviewed journal, it is clear that getting a flu shot greatly increases the risk (by 4-plus-fold) that a person who receives it will contract and potentially spread one or more non-influenza respiratory viruses, some of which are not serious and morbid infections in humans. (See Study).

In addition, the study established that the overall effect of vaccination for those who were vaccinated did not differ from the effect of giving a sterile-saline placebo when it came to protection from subsequently contracting influenza. Any recommendation to vaccinate healthcare workers with an influenza vaccine not only put the healthcare worker at a higher increased risk of contracting non-influenza viral respiratory infections but also every patient with which he or she has contact.
a. Support abandoning a mask-wearing practice that will be ineffective in protecting the patients and, given the cited paper’s findings, is clearly discriminatory — which, because wearing a mask causes the wearer discomfort, is worse than some “Star of David”-like identifier — without any scientific or medical validity, or
b. If there is scientific proof that wearing the masks provided to healthcare workers absolutely stops the transmission of all respiratory viruses, demand that all healthcare workers who get a flu shot or the live influenza vaccine (which is known to spread the influenza viruses it contains for weeks) must also similarly wear a mask after being inoculated since, based on this study,
1. Those healthcare who have received a flu dose are at a 4-plus-fold increased risk infecting others with a non- influenza respiratory viral infection than that infection risk from those healthcare workers who get no flu shot and
2. Both groups, influenza-vaccine-inoculated and the non-inoculated, apparently have a similar risk of subsequently contracting and spreading an influenza virus.
