Synopsis: Influenza vaccine is ineffective. Influenza Vaccine Efficacy Studies [PDF file]

  1. Influenza & Pneumonia Cases - Deaths per Year - This document
    details the number of deaths and cases of influenza and pneumonia that occur
    each year as per the CDC's own data
    . It clearly shows that there are not
    36,000 or more deaths from influenza each year
    (i.e. It is approximately
    1,200 deaths per year), and that following increased uptake of influenza
    vaccine in the United States from the 1970s through the late 1990s, there
    was little or no decrease in the number of cases or deaths from influenza in
    the United States
    . It also shows that children under the age of one year
    very rarely die of influenza
    (i.e. there are approximately between 7 to 12
    deaths per year in the entire United States, annually)
     

  2. Influenza Vaccine Efficacy for 2003-2004 - This document produced
    by the CDC shows that last year's influenza vaccine offered no statistically
    significant protection against developing influenza
    -like illnesses (i.e.
    those vaccinated were at equal risk to develop an influenza-like illness as
    those that received no vaccine)
    .
     

  3. Influenza Vaccine Efficacy in Infants - This document, is a
    peer-reviewed scientific prospective study on the efficacy of influenza
    vaccine in young children, conducted by researchers from
    Japan. It showed
    that the administration of influenza vaccine offered no statistically
    significant protection against developing influenza infection
    (i.e. those
    children that were vaccinated with influenza vaccine were equally likely as
    those children that were unvaccinated to develop influenza).
