What Is In The Seasonal Flu Shot
This year’s seasonal flu vaccine is being encouraged for everyone 6 months and older. Before you or someone you care about decides to take this vaccine, know what is in it.
The ingredients, aside from the pathogen itself, are listed below – specifically taken from Glaxo Smith Kline’s PREPANDRIX ingredients list. Other brands will contain the same ingredients, in slightly different proportions.
This year’s seasonal shot includes the H1N1 pathogen, as well as other common strains.
Everyone should ask themselves how much sense it makes that these things should ever be recommended for injection into weak and vulnerable persons such as the elderly and infants, especially.
The very ones which are most targeted for seasonal flu shots are those who are most likely to experience tragic side effects.
Haemagglutinin – Blood agglutinator (causes blood to clot)
Squalene – A hydrocarbon compound found naturally in shark liver oil, though squalene used in vaccines is usually a synthetic polymer. Used to intensify immune response, this was the determining factor in a disorder known as Gulf War syndrome. Symptoms include headache, dizziness, digestive ailments, auto immune disorders, fatigue, cancer, birth defects, joint and muscle pain and varied neurological problems.
DL-a-tocopherol – A synthetic form of vitamin E which instead of acting as a nutrient, extracts nutrients out of bone and soft tissue.
Polysorbate 80 – A polyethoxylated (having the properties of a detergent) emulsifier. Is potentially mutanagenic, causes reduction in fertility.
Octoxynol 10 – A surfactant and also used as the active ingredient in spermicides. Serious reproductive damaging effects, mutanagenic.
Thimerosal – A mercury compound used as a preservative. Toxic to nearly every major organ, bone marrow and central nervous system. Can cause peripheral neuropathy (causing a tingling, itching or numb sensation), skin discoloration, swelling, sweating, tachycardia, hypertension, rashes, loss of hair, photo-sensitivity, renal failure, insomnia, memory impairment and autism in children.
Sodium chloride – Table salt. Perhaps the safest ingredient in the vaccine, though injected can aggravate hypertension.
Disodium hydrogen phosphate – A sodium salt of phosphoric acid used as an anti caking agent. Can cause irritation at injection site, vascular damage, abdominal pain and intestinal upset.
Potassium dihydrogen phosphate – A Soluble salt used as a fertilizer, fungicide and pesticide. Can degrade to toxic oxides in certain ph environments. Causes local pain and irritation at injection site.
Potassium chloride – A metal halide salt of potassium and chlorine. Used as the active ingredient in lethal injection execution and also as a fertilizer. Damages heart, can cause sudden cardiac arrest, the reason it is used for lethal injection.
Magnesium chloride – Ionic halide salt used as coagulant, de-icer and animal feed additive. May cause allergic reaction resulting in anaphylaxis.
