83% Of Parents Refuse Flu Shot At Chicago Hospital Stunning Health Officials

A new report released by the Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Julie Morita and Lurie Children’s Hospital created controversy last week after the report indicated a large amount of flu shot refusers.

Morita’s report showed that at least 83% of local parents refuse the flu shot and that 14% refuse all vaccines.

“In fact, 14 percent overall refused vaccines, and 83 percent of parents refused flu vaccine, in particular,” Dr. Matthew Davis of Lurie Children’s Hospital said. “It was the most commonly refused vaccine overall.”

Morita blames the large swath of refusers on people thinking it is “too late” to get a flu shot. But here’s the rub, 2/3rds of the people cited concerns over adverse effects, both on the long and short term.

“There’s usually a little bit of redness or pain at the site where the vaccine is given, but what I emphasize to my patients is that minor inconvenience of a flu vaccine is much better than the seriousness of flu illness,” Dr. Davis said in response.

It seems that more people are timid to get the flu shot, rather than worried about the timeline regarding when they get it. Nevertheless, the new message is that it “is not too late to get your flu shot.”

“It’s a really serious infection,” Morita said. “For most people, they will recover, but for some people, young children, people with chronic underlying health disease, such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease, those kinds of individuals can get very, very sick and end up in the hospital.”

COMMENT: We here at Vaxxter think Morita’s comment is simply not true and fear-mongering

What can you do instead, even if you have chronic health problems? Wash your hands frequently (but not obsessively); make sure your 25-OH Vitamin D level is between 80 and 100 nmol/l; take Vitamin C Ascorbates 3000mg/day; avoid white sugar, white flour and white rice. You don’t need a flu shot;  in fact, you can get flu shot and still become ill with another infection that causes flu-like symptoms.

  1. I love to read any sign that people are wising up and realizing how dangerous and toxic all vaccines are, and the best plan of action to fight the flu is to foster a healthy immune system.

  2. When baby formula came out we convinced young mothers that it was far superior to their own human milk (you know human milk made for human babies). Instead feeding babies crap made from cow’s milk, corn syrup, soy, hexane, and a few other chemicals is much better. When it first came out it didn’t even have the iron babies need in it. DDT used to be good for you too, they even put it in drinking water. While formula may be good for those who cannot breast feed and its formulation has improved we all laugh now that anyone would ever think this was superior to breast milk. Vaccines are worse because not only do they give us poor immunity they also come with a slurry of poisons that could ultimately kill a person or lead to other vaccines injuries. No child should suffer from a vaccine injury!

    We, the informed readers of this article, KNOW this statement by Morita is not only not true and fear mongering but a sign that this so-called ‘Doctor’ isn’t fit to be a lab-tech let alone the medical doctor/spokesperson for public health education!
