The National Institutes of Health study revealed that not only are flu vaccines not effective in preventing the flu in the elderly, but death rates for the elderly have increased as vaccination rates have increased.
Over the past 20 years, seniors getting flu vaccinations have increased from 15% to 65%, however deaths by flu have increased during that time-frame, not decreased. And, similar results have been found in other countries: Australia, France, Canada, and England.

And, it doesn't end there. Not only are flu vaccinations ineffective in the elderly, but our taxpayer dollars are going to fund the free and reduced-cost vaccinations! I would suggest contacting your congressional representatives and ask them to act on this study: stop funding ineffective vaccinations!
