Children younger than 5 years old–especially those younger than 2– are at high risk of developing serious flu-related complications.A flu vaccine offers the best defense against flu and its potentially serious consequences and can also reduce the spread of flu. Hundreds of millions of Americans have safely received flu vaccines for more than 50 years, and there has been extensive research supporting the safety of flu vaccines. Vaccines, like any medicine, can have side effects. When they occur, flu vaccine side effects are generally mild and go away on their own within a few days.

Children under 6 months of age shouldn’t receive the influenza vaccine. To protect these children from potential exposure to the virus, all family members or caregivers should be vaccinated. People who SHOULD NOT get a nasal spray vaccine: Children younger than 2 years. Adults 50 years and older.

Pregnant women. People with severe, life-threatening allergies to flu vaccine or any ingredient in the vaccine. Children 2 years through 17 years of age who are receiving aspirinor salicylate.

  • They don’t take into consideration that everyone has 98.6 body temperature. Not do they take into consideration the ” live” bacteria can piggy back with other viruses or bacteria and mutate… It’s the virus survival..then you do get sick or become infectious

  • Glad to see so many people waking up. it is common sense that our immune systems are designed to protect us from illness. The best way to protect yourself from illness is to consume nutrients and micronutrients, as Mother nature intended. Food is our medicine. The pharmaceutical industry is all about profits. Do your research. You will also learn vaccinations are designed depopulate. This guy isn’t even dry behind the ear, probably why the military uniform. Makes him appear more officious.lol

  • I had a flu injection many years ago, and got the flu not long after that.  Since then, I haven’t taken the flu shot.  What I have learned about Big Pharma. and the general medical establishment, has made me weary of their services and drug administrations.

  • Doctors have to put their jobs on the line when they make these statements. Without follow up and evaluation all shots are useless. What if they didnt take? Are you saying all shots are 100% effective? The CDC has already had doctors leave and apologize about lieing to our doctors. Without full transparency on this issue its just a scam.

  • Big pharma have a very very bad reputation, so it’s no wonder that people are getting pissed off with the information coming from them and have lost a lot of trust in their advice. IMO I still think those in higher risk groups should seriously consider getting a jab or taking measures to reduce their risk of catching it (eg masks, hygiene measures). And the medical community really needs to work hard at looking more at what goes into the shot to make people less fearful of it….

  • I stopped taking flu shots in 1972, haven’t had the flu since. My father would get shots every year, darn near every year he’d get the flu. I understand the trying to curtail the possibility of an epidemic but I think the folks that continually get sick after flu shots should consider not taking them then see what happens.

  • This guy works for the CDC and does not care about you or your children, every one should do your own research from both sides of the debate, consider your resources, for example this guy is getting paid ALLOT of money to lie to you, The Doctors and Scientist who are trying to inform you all of the dangers have absolutely nothing to gain out of telling you not to get the influenza shot, every single person telling you to get the shot is either making a profit or they are a puppet to a certain organization profiting off these Vacine’s which are killing more than saving or they are tied to agenda 21. I gain nothing off telling you to do extensive research before taking these poisonous injections. Do your research and you’ll decide not to get this vaccine.

  • Make the vaccine animal ingredient and 100% risk free, then come talk to me. I don’t get the flu vaccine because it’s grown in chicken periods, doesn’t work well and has side effects.

  • Say what you want to….I’m not getting it because everytime…everytime I got that shot…it never failed…I got the Flu…..that’s me….I choose to fight it naturally and naturally works if you know what you’re doing….also fighting the flu and cold starts with good health by what you eat daily…organic garlic, lemon, honey, green herbal tea daily…it works and the main medicine is YAHUAH/GOD YESHUA HAMASHIACH/JESUS THE SAVIOUR ANNOINTED ONE, & RUACH HAKADASH/THE HOLY SPIRIT����
