AV Hospital to offer free flu shots

LANCASTER – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging people to get their Influenza (flu) shots as soon as possible due to increasing influenza activity in parts of the country and expected further increases in the coming weeks and months.

Antelope Valley Hospital (AVH) will help in this effort by offering free flu shots to all adults 65 and older, adults with chronic illness, and those who act as caretakers of individuals with chronic disease.

“We care about our community’s health and would like to make it more convenient for our senior citizens to receive their annual flu vaccine,” said Edward Mirzabegian, AVH Chief Executive Officer. “Senior citizens sometimes find obtaining flu vaccinations difficult. Flu shots often require a visit to the physician’s office with costly co-payments. We hope that by offering free flu shots, we can make staying healthy easier this year.”

Free flu vaccinations will be available for adults 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, December 8 in The Café on J, located on the hospital’s first floor.

To qualify for a free flu shot, individuals must meet one of the following guidelines:

  • Adults age 65 and over
  • Adults of all ages with chronic illness (i.e. pulmonary disease, asthma, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, kidney or metabolic disorders, etc.)
  • Caretakers of individuals with one or more of the above health conditions

The flu vaccine is formulated to provide protection against three different flu viruses: H1N1, H3N2 and influenza B.

    You can thumbs down my comment all you want but again the CDC said…
    “The following substances are found in vaccines: aluminum,(brain toxin) antibiotics, egg protein, formaldehyde (now listed as carcinogenic), MSG or monosodium glutamate (a known neurotoxin),and thimerosal(neurotoxic mercury).”
    Anybody that would thumbs down an attempt to inform the uninformed before they do damage to themselves or the body of a loved one, should take the shot though. So whoever you are, I hope your taking your EUGENICS driven vaccines and are ready to turn in your guns when the dictator says to!

    Flu vaccines can’t even guarantee protection, because they may not have the right viral strain for that year’s flu bug. Yet there are those who have bragged about how their annual flu shots left them flu free every year. One wonders how many of them will soon be getting familiar first hand with Alzheimer’s disease.

    Recently, Dr. Hugh Fudenberg, a world renowned immunogeneticist announced that you have a ten-fold increased chance of Alzheimer’s after receiving five flu shots. That’s ten times more likely than no flu shots or one, not ten percent more likely.

    Dr. Fudenberg did his study covering the years 1970 through 1980. He and other researchers consider this increased risk of Alzheimer’s has resulted from the combination of mercury (thimerosal) and aluminum that builds up over time in the brain.

    Interestingly, Alzheimer’s has been on a steep rise over the last few decades, coinciding with the advent and increased promotion of flu shots for senior citizens. A 1998 John Hopkins newsletter predicted a quadrupling of Alzheimer’s cases over the next decade.

    According to the CDC, “The following substances are found in vaccines: aluminum,(brain toxin) antibiotics, egg protein, formaldehyde (now listed as carcinogenic), MSG or monosodium glutamate (a known neurotoxin),and thimerosal(neurotoxic mercury).”

    Not all of these additives are used in all vaccines all the time, but many flu vaccines do contain most of them most of the time. Some flu vaccines contain other toxins not mentioned, such as Triton X 100, a detergent.

    Nobody ever stops to ask why all the increase in cancers and why all these new debilitations that were not around in the 1950’s. What changed around that time?
    Vaccinations were starting to be pushed around that time. There were already polio vaccines but many new vaccines started coming out then.
    The pharmacuetical companies have never been about curing anything. They treat so you continue to buy their drugs. They suppress cures because it is bad for business. With thinking like that, is it any wonder they add in so many harmful substances? Healthy today, but tomorrow you will need their drugs to manage the condition they gave you with the dirty vaccines!
    It is a very evil world run by very evil people!

    Study after Study Shows the Flu Shot is a Scam

    A study published in the October 2008 issue of the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine found that vaccinating young children against the flu had no impact on flu-related hospitalizations or doctor visits during two recent flu seasons. The researchers concluded that “significant influenza vaccine effectiveness could not be demonstrated for any season, age, or setting” examined.
    A 2008 study published in the Lancet found that influenza vaccination was NOT associated with a reduced risk of pneumonia in older people. This also supports an earlier study, published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
    Research published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine also confirms that there has been no decrease in deaths from influenza and pneumonia in the elderly, despite the fact that vaccination coverage among the elderly has increased from 15 percent in 1980 to 65 percent now.
    In 2007, researchers with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the National Institutes of Health published this conclusion in the Lancet Infectious Diseases:
    A large-scale, systematic review of 51 studies, published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in 2006, found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo in children under 2. The studies involved 260,000 children, age 6 to 23 months.

    Skip the Shot and Naturally Protect Yourself!
    Our bodies are not intended to be given noxious toxins such as what the flu shots are made of. According to an article on doctor Mercola’s website, vaccines have aluminum, sucrose, animal tissues, MSG, and antifreeze in them. Ugh!

    The best way to help YOU from getting sick this winter is to take care of YOU. Treat yourself better than you ever have before. That starts with a healthy eating regime. Get healthy now and stay healthy!

    Eat a wide variety of raw fruits and vegetables (get your seven colors in daily)
    Cleanse your digestive tract (colon cleanse) before the flu season hits
    Include more probiotics in your diet now such as yogurt, kefir, and sauerkraut
    Don’t stay up late, de-stress your life and get plenty of sleep
    Amp up your water intake by two extra glasses a day
    Eat an organic apple with the skin on every night before bed (helps with constipation)
    Start juicing today, organic fruits and veggies each morning on an empty stomach (don’t forget to add two or three cloves of natural antibiotic, garlic)
    Get some sunshine on your skin
    Exercise regularly even if its brisk walking a few miles every day (get outside and enjoy the fall weather)
    Don’t let the media hype scare you into getting the flu shot

    Be good to yourself! If you happen to get the flu even though you are doing all of these things, your symptoms will be very mild and you will get over it more quickly. You can bet on it! Take care of yourself and let nature take its due course.
